    13.3 six, six, wide, out! Good riposte from Raina, he snares the big wicket of Gayle. This looked like a seam-up ball from Raina on off, Gayle sets up for a pull but can only top-edge it into the air. Raina pedals back from his follow-through and settles under it near the mid-on region. Excellent judgement. 80/4
    4.1 Nehra strikes, he gets rid of Virat Kohli. This was an innocuous ball on the hips, Kohli picks it up and flicks it straight to Mohit Sharma at short fine leg. Mohit bends forward and pouches it 23/1
    4.6 double-strike from Nehra! Another appeal for lbw, AB has been given out now. This was another inwinger from Nehra, AB misses it and is rapped on the back pad. AB did not account for the movement here. This may have pitched outside leg.... Might have been snaking down. Tight call. Yes, it pitched just outside leg 25/2
    7.1 Mandeep departs as RCB slip to 36 for 3. Hussey pulls off a brilliant catch. Flighted around off with some extra bounce, Madeep sinks to one knee and goes for a sweep. He mis-hits it in the air, Hussey sprints in from deep backward square leg, dives forward and takes a superb, low catch! Raina wraps Hussey in a hug... 36/3
    16.2 DK holes out to long-on. Low full toss on middle, instead of launching it over long-on, DK scoops it straight into the hands of Mohit, caught near chest height.. The bat twisted in his hand, foiling his timing. Kohli winces in the dug out. 107/5

    19.5 Sarfraz perishes off the penultimate ball of the innings. Bravo slips in another slower ball outside off, he backs away for a cut. Ends up slicing it into the hands of Negi at point 139/8
    18.2 Bravo snaffles Wiese at long-on. Back of a length and on middle, skiddy ball. Wiese goes for a lofted strike and mis-hits it to Bravo, who comes in and completes a simple catch 125/6
    19.3 wide, Dhoni takes his time, aims at the stumps and hits it! This was a back of a length slower ball outside off, Harshal throws his bat at it and is fooled by the change of pace. He seeks a quick single. Dhoni collects the ball and effects an over-arm direct hit.. 138/7

    3.1 Aravind strikes. Smith short-arm pulls and finds Mitch Starc. This was dropped short on middle and leg, Smith brings out his pet shot but hits is straight down the throat of Starc at deep square leg. He was cramped for room there 21/1
    16.3 Wiese gets rid of Hussey. Crucial wicket for Royal Challengers. Short ball directed on a leg-stump line, tucks him up for room and messes with the attempted pull. He loops it to short fine leg off a top edge. Harshal takes a couple of steps back and snaps it up.. 108/4
    9.2 bowled 'em! This was a straight roller from Chahal, Faf goes low for a dinky lap-sweep and misses it entirely. Chahal rattles the leg stump. 61/2
    9.4 Massive blow for Super Kings. Raina bags a duck. Tossed up, googly outside off, Raina attempts a lofted strike after dancing down the track, does not connect properly, slicing it to long-off. Wiese reverse-cups his hands around it. Kohli is off on a celebratory sprint. AB is pumped too 61/3
    19.4 Ranchi has been hushed into silence. Dhoni nicks off to DK, who makes no mistake now. Good length and outside off, Dhoni hunts for a powerful drive over the covers and feeds an outer edge to DK 139/7
    18.5 direct hit at the strikers', Negi walks off. Yorker at the base of off, jammed out to the covers. Dhoni rushes across for a quick single, Negi reciprocates. Sarfraz lasers a direct hit and ends Negi's cameo 135/5
    18.6 Starc splinters the off stump, breaks it into two. DJ Bravo out for a golden duck. Starc goes ventures of the crease and spears it right in the blockhole, too hot for Bravo, who can't dig it out. Is the game still alive? 135/6
