    0.3 Raina has taken a stunner. Suresh Raina, you beauty. Last season, it was Dwayne Smith. This season, it is Praveen Kumar. Good length delivery comes back in, Rahane looks to get off the mark with a dab to third man but gets a thick outside edge. Flies to Raina, who is at wide slip. Flies to his left. He sticks out a left hand and clings on. He looks quite perplexed he held on, too 0/1
    5.5 not enough elevation. A slower delivery on middle and leg, the knuckle ball. Tripathi lifts the ball, but can't hit it over mid-off. Hits it to mid-off, where Finch takes a simple reverse-cupped catch. A wicket in his first over on IPL debut 64/2
    9.2 Smith gets Smith. Good length outside off, Steven Smith mis-times one. Yes, he did. Not sure how. Back of a length outside off, some extra bounce. Hits the splice of the bat while pulling. Straight to long-on, who ran in and took a sitter 89/3

    12.1 confounds Stokes with a slower ball. That's Tye's specialty. Another knuckle ball on off and middle, Stokes misses a flick and the ball goes through between a big gap between bat and pad. Knocks into the off stump. An inside edge into the pad and then the stumps 106/4
    19.2 another wicket. Tye on a hat-trick now. Slower ball on middle and leg, Tiwary flicks. Can't quite get enough power behind that because of the slower ball. Kishan takes a good catch near the backward square leg boundary. 167/7
    14.2 Dhoni gone. Jadeja gets 'im. Was that skidding down leg? Maybe not. Full and straight from Jadeja, the ball skids on and beats Dhoni's attempted lofted stroke. Strikes him in front of leg, would have gone on to hit leg stump. 120/5
    19.1 a superb catch from McCullum. Full on leg, Ankit gets underneath but gets more elevation than distance. Goes straight up, swirling around but McCullum gets underneath and takes a quality catch at long-on. 167/6
    19.3 another hat-trick. Two hat-tricks in one day. The first five-for of this IPL. Tye is on a roll. Gets the yorker right, and Thakur misses a flick. The ball sneaks through and hits leg and middle stump. Tye and the Lions go berserk. 167/8

    8.5 seems like a slower ball. Drops it short, outside off. Smith reaches out and tries to flay it over with an uppercut. Goes too hard at it and makes good contact but sends it down the throat of third man who takes it comfortably 94/1
    11.1 nicely done. Great bowling. McCullum has sort of thrown it away here. Comes down the track in a pre-meditated move and the bowler drags the length back. Gets it to spin away from McCullum who tries to slap it away. Does not make contact and the wicketkeeper does the rest 102/2

    12.5 googly, sends back Karthik. Not picked by the batsman. Shortish and Karthik shapes up for a cut. Pitching outside off and coming in, Karthik chops it on 111/3
