    5.5 this is given by umpire Ravi. A flat delivery on off and middle, Guptill gets really low to try and sweep over backward square leg but just can't miss it, especially with that kind of shot. It struck him in line with off, and looked out-er than the previous one. Kings XI stumble 41/2
    4.5 and given! Yes, seemed like glove. A short delivery down leg. Vohra wanted to play this fine because fine leg is more towards square leg. In doing that, he tried to get underneath the ball - like a scoop - rather than with the flat bat. Kisses the glove and carries to Uthappa. That wasn't a good delivery, but Umesh won't care 39/1

    8.3 bowled 'im. Big wicket. It's full, it's straight. Marsh plays the line but the ball seams back in late to beat the inside edge and clatter into off stump. Definite late lateral movement did for Marsh. Undone by a special ball. Kings XI in real trouble here, their season hangs in the balance 56/3
    17.5 excellent bowling again. Sees Saha coming but delivers his googly well outside off. Gets underneath Saha's bat and Uthappa does the rest. A wide signalled but worth it to get a set man at this stage. 146/5
    15.3 superb catch by Woakes. A googly from Kuldeep, very wide outside off. Maxwell can't hold back, why would he? He chooses a good option too, a lofted drive over cover but can't quite get enough behind that. It hangs in the air for a while before settling in Woakes' hands, who ran across from long-off to take a quality catch. Made a tough catch look incredibly easy, both hands too. 127/4

    18.2 chops on. 129 kph. Good length delivery outside off, Swapnil opts to pull but can't quite get his bat in line with the ball. He plays over the ball slightly and the ball clatters into leg stump. Keeps a charge in check does wickets 149/6

    3.4 bowled 'im! Another slower one from Mohit - this one's the offcutter - sent down full and straight, attacking middle stump. Brave ball to bowl, but Narine didn't pick it, swung too early, swung across the line, and Kings XI finally have a breakthrough 39/1
    17.2 run-out ends Lynn's innings, and this could be pivotal! Full, angling into off stump. Looks to clear his front leg and smash it to long-on, mistimes and drags it square. Rolls towards deep midwicket, they chance a second to keep Lynn on strike. Slightly tired legs, a super accurate throw from Axar, on the bounce and into the keeper's gloves, and Saha does the rest with the batsman still out by a foot or so 132/5
    9.3 tossed up on leg stump, and Gambhir - having been tied down for 17 balls - sees a boundary opportunity, clears his front leg, and slogs hard. Big outfield here, and he doesn't hit this all that cleanly, and all he ends up doing is picking out deep midwicket 78/2
    9.5 googly, and Uthappa may have picked this, but he's also picked out a fielder. Looks for the slog-sweep. This was bowled slower so he had to manufacture the power himself, doesn't really manage it. And what a superb catch that is. Axar sprints to his right from deep midwicket, dives, and takes it a foot from the ground with both hands 79/3
    17.1 that's a super slower ball, a dipping full one, out of the back of the hand, on leg stump, and he's taken out Pandey. Looks for the big whip over midwicket, doesn't time it at all, and Axar takes a simple catch at deep midwicket 131/4

    18.1 and he strikes first ball. Slower ball, back of a length, Yusuf takes a stride out, slogs, and can't get enough power behind this, hits it down long-on's throat. The big boundaries here make the slower one such a potent weapon 139/6
