    3.2 Gayle will have to wait further for 10,000 runs in T20 cricket. Morris gets Gayle for the third time in six innings. Only Ashwin has dismissed Gayle more times in IPL. This was a quick full-toss outside off, just below the waist, 145ks, surprises Gayle. He only splices the ball high in the air. Samson tracks the ball from mid-off. Moves back, then to his right, gets into a side-on position, and completes a sprawling catch. Excellent reflexes from Samson 26/1
    8.4 Watson steps out, Nadeem smartly shortens his length. Finds extra bounce and a bit of turn to defeat Watson's swish. Pant collects the ball outside off and does the rest 55/3
    5.5 chopped on. The middle stump is knocked back. One shot too many, Mandeep? He backs away outside leg and aims to flay it through cover. This is short of a length and outside off, Mandeep goes hard at the ball and drags it back onto the stumps 41/2
    16.6 Jadhav holes out to Morris at mid-off. This was full on off, slower from Zaheer, Jadhav lines up for a loft but loses his shape and only toe-ends the ball in the air. Morris, who is inside the circle, settles under this skier. Jadhav's blitz is over 142/6
    14.6 seam-up full ball on the leg stump. Binny whips it away but does not bother to keep the ball down. Billings takes a regulation catch at deep midwicket 121/4
    16.4 Does not carry to Nadeem but he effects a run out at the bowler's end. Carved away to cover, falls just short of the fielder. Vinod chances a single. Nadeem spears a nice, flat throw to Zaheer, who breaks the stumps 142/5

    19.3 The middle stump is floored. The off and leg stumps are left spread-eagled. Rapid yorker, Negi can't carve it through the off side. Morris hits 157/7

    19.6 Morris smashes the stumps again. Perfect finish to the innings for the Daredevils. Morris attempts the yorker, this ends up for a full-toss, but that's enough to clean up Mills. He can't put bat on the drive. 15 runs scored in the last three overs is RCB's third-lowest in the last three. Morris finishes with 17 dots in a four-over spell, only 3 bowlers have bowled more at Chinnaswamy 157/8

    4.4 bowled'em. Tare is beaten for pace. Good length, 143ks, hustles Tare. Bursts through his defences and hits the off stump. Tare actually backed away, went hard at a cut, and missed. You can't cut this line and length and that Tare stepped away made things difficult for him 33/1
    7.3 Stanlake runs to his left from backward point and grabs this sliced outside edge. Tossed up wide and turns away outside off, slashes away from the body and holes out 55/3
    5.3 Stanlake nails middle and off. This is a fine ball, 144ks, back of a length and angled in and nips away slightly, Nair has a short front foot stride. He can't cover the line. Plays down the wrong line. The off stump takes a beating. Maiden IPL wicket for Stanlake 38/2
    10.5 Samson has been bounced out. Chest-high short ball on off, rushes Samson into a pull. He is on the front foot and only top-edges a catch to Binny at long-on 84/4

    19.1 first-ball wicket. Negi hits the leg stump and the Chinnaswamy raises itself to a huuuuge roar. This is a seam-up fast ball, Pant shuffles across off and goes low for the sweep. Does not get bat onto it. Negi floors the leg stump with this quick fizzer, striking with his first ball of the season against his former team. Credit to Pant too for showing steel and resolve after a personal tragedy 139/8
    12.6 arm ball from Abdulla, pins Morris in front. This was a full ball sliding into the right-hander. Instead of pressing forward, Morris plays back, is beaten on the inside edge and hit on the back pad in front of middle. Plumb 107/5
    14.5 Brathwaite's luck immediately runs out. Tossed up straight, Brathwaite eyes a big slog-sweep. Looks like his bat got stuck into the pitch as he was attempting the big mow. Bowled. The middle stump is rattled. Chahal lets out an almighty roar 113/6
    16.2 Dragged onto the leg stump. Back of a length and slanted in, Cummins looks to drive down the ground and plays it back onto the stumps 125/7

    19.3 This is a skier and Negi bolts back and takes it himself. Tossed up on middle, Nadeem looks to loft it away but only skews it in the air. Nagi runs back and settles under it near the mid-on region 139/9
