    2.2 straight through. The best ball to the pinch-hitter - a yorker. An inswing yorker. Narine gives himself room, but the ball is too quick, it hustles underneath the bat and uproots off stump. Perfect from Bhuvneshwar. Again, not a bad call from KKR because he didn't waste too many balls. 10/1
    5.4 Rashid strikes. Good nagging, accurate bowling. And that's a poor shot from Gambhir. Flat and straight, skids on, the legbreak. Gambhir gives himself room and misses a cut. Clatters into the stumps 40/2
    14.2 taken this time. Uthappa's quality innings ends. Another legcutter, shortish outside off. Uthappa looks to pull but mis-times it slightly, the bat handle turning in his hands. Skews off the outside half and hangs in the air for enough time for Rashid to get around and take it. Good catch. 117/3
    17.4 that's a change in pace. The slower delivery outside off, Pandey is through his lofted drive too early. Warner runs in from long-off. Bipul runs back from cover. Warner takes the catch but wasn't happy with Bipul being so close to him. Doesn't say anything though 153/4

    18.5 taken this time. And given by ump Dandekar. Short down leg, Suryakumar gets some glove on his pull. Naman dives to his left and takes the catch. One-handed. 163/5
    19.4 superb bowling. Unplayable. The inswinging yorker on off, de Grandhomme can't get his bat down in time. The ball sneaks under the bat and clatters into off stump. Momentum for Sunrisers 170/6

    9.5 Warner had not been picking him properly and now he's picked out long-off! Has Woakes taken an easier catch? It was nicely flighted outside off with some drift, Warner swung his bat and shook his head the moment the ball took off, he knew he was going to be out 59/2
    6.4 holes out to long-off, Yusuf has struck! He stepped out to get to the pitch of the ball but didn't use enough power to go over long-off or didn't place it wide of him. Easy catch for de Grandhomme 46/1
    10.4 he's handed a return catch to Woakes, big blow for Sunrisers! Length delivery on the off side, Henriques shows the straight-bat technique beautifully with a drive but he's played it uppishly and Woakes take a good catch just around waist height 65/3
    14.5 the slower cutter does it this time, another batsman caught down the ground as Yuvraj picks long-on. Back of length on the off side, Yuvraj wanted to swat it away to the leg side but got a leading edge for Rishi Dhawan. Checking for the no ball but he's fine 112/5
    13.2 steps out, misses and he's stumped in quick time by Uthappa. Narine floated the ball with a scrambled seam, Hooda danced down the track for a slog but missed the line completely and Uthappa took the bails out this time 96/4
    17.1 a catch has been taken off Boult! Looked like he ran his fingers over it outside off, Cutting lofted it down the ground and found long-off for a straightforward catch 129/6
