    3.1 that was a rubbish delivery that gets the wicket. What a way to go. A filthy long-hop on leg. Roy gets into position to pull, but somehow gets a leading edge. Hangs in the air for a while before settling in Yusuf's hands at square leg, running to his right from midwicket. Not the best IPL debuts for Roy. 22/1
    8.1 that was plumb! Just misses a straight one does McCullum. Full and straight from Kuldeep, on middle. The legbreak. Spun towards leg, struck McCullum in front of leg. Could it have spinning down? May have been too full for the umpire to consider that option. Didn't look a bad decision at first glance. 72/2

    10.2 Finch holes out to wide long-off. Suryakumar pulls off the finger-on-the-lip celebration. This is the tossed-up googly from Kuldeep. Finch backed away outside leg to loft it over the covers. He probably picked the googly but did not get the execution right; sliced it off the outside edge to long-off running to his left 92/3
    19.5 short ball, homing in towards the shoulder, Karthik can't control a pull. He is beaten for pace and holes out to wide long-on 179/4
