    15.6 slower bouncer, Rayudu looks to pull but can only toe-end it towards short mid-on. Rayudu was halfway down the pitch when Tiwary took off. Umesh hared across, picked it up cleanly and had the presence of mind to run all the way up to the striker's end and dislodge the bails. Tiwary stood no chance in a dash against Umesh. 130/3
    2.2 finds the bucket hands of Narine at mid-off. This is full once again but held its line, Simmons looked to hit it up and over the infield, just like he tried to off the previous delivery, but only managed to hit it flat and hard. 12/1
    8.2 he's got the big fish. This is a cutter which Rohit looks to ease past short third man. May have been pad first before the ball deflected off the bat. Yes, excellent decision from S Ravi. The came back in a long way, the impact was on off stump. Would have hit top of middle. 69/2
    18.5 this is what makes Kuldeep special. Hit for two sixes but that didn't deter him from flighting the ball again. Does well to float this wide, Rayudu couldn't use his reach to swing the ball as he stepped out. Uthappa effects a straightforward stumping. Rayudu asks the umpire why it wasn't called wide as he walks off. 168/4
    19.4 toe-ends a slog to Yusuf, who takes a skier at the edge of the circle at cover. The low dipping full toss from Boult, Pollard looked to swing across the line and ended up getting more elevation than distance. Yusuf called early and made a tough catch look easy. 170/5

    0.4 superb bowling. It was a clear plan not to let him drive. This was back of a length and it sat in the pitch. Might have just rolled his fingers on it. It climbed up at him on an off stump line as he tried to back away and slap it over mid-off. Could only lift it high to extra cover's left. Hardik there, watches it closely and gets under it quickly to complete the catch 0/1
    6.2 big moment in the game. Vinay digs this in short, Lynn pulls off the frontfoot but didn't get any power on that. Suchith, his Karnataka team-mate, moved to steps to his right to pouch that at deep midwicket 53/4
    4.3 the extra pace has done the trick. Gambhir not in position to play the pull, beaten for pace as he looks to take him on with the pull, top-edges it to short fine where Karn Sharma takes an excellent catch. It was a swirler, not easy but did well to see it right into his palms. 41/2
    5.6 looks to back away and slap this over cover but didn't have the room as Karn followed him, sliced straight to cover. As easy as they come. . KKR in trouble 53/3
    17.1 missed the catch in the previous over, makes no mistake this time. Pandey is cramped for room as he plays the short-arm jab, skewed straight to deep midwicket. 149/7
    8.6 length ball outside off, Yusuf makes the mistake of looking to swipe this across the line when he was better off trying to hit straight, ends up giving a simple catch to Hardik, who didn't have to move an inch, at long-on. 87/5
    14.1 length ball nips back in off the seam to take a thin inside edge on De Grandhomme's feeble push and smash into the stumps. 128/6
    18.3 backs away to squeeze this behind point but the ball takes a thin edge through to Rayudu. Or did it take the edge? The decision wasn't straightforward for A Nanda Kishore because the bat's inside edge grazed the ground as it went past. Kuldeep didn't look disappointed though. Snicko showed no spike. 158/8
