    2.3 dream IPL beginning for Mujeeb as Munro has fallen to an attempted switch hit. Doesn't even bother reviewing because he was plumb. Mujeeb got this full delivery to drift in from around the stumps, Munro got himself into a tangle in trying to reverse sweep, and once he missed he was a dead duck. Massive strike! 12/1
    14.6 direct hit and Gambhir's bat is on the line. Would've been even through an inkling of a dive. Gambhir was lazily ambling down the surface and has paid the price. Coming back to the delivery, this was clipped straight to short fine leg. Nevertheless, this has been an excellent innings from Gambhir. Weathered the early storm and set them up for a strong finish. Mujeeb continues to have a field day 123/5
    6.5 finally flighted one, got it to turn and has been rewarded. This is much slower through the air, Iyer is drawn forward as he shapes to drive but couldn't get to the pitch. The faint nick has been well taken by Rahul behind the stumps. 54/2
    10.1 comes back and strikes immediately. Vijay looks to pull this short ball but this skids through to beat him for pace, gets elevation on this short-arm jab but can't generate power and long on takes a comfortable catch. 77/3
    13.2 hje's misread the googly and has paid the price! Steps out to hoick this into the leg side but doesn't quite get to the pitch and slices this to cover where Tye was running backwards from the infield, wasn't in balance but somehow managed to hold on to the swirler. Superb catch. Mujeeb's superb initiation into the IPL continues. 111/4
    15.3 one switch hit too many and is gone. This is not the most intelligent piece of cricket from Tewatia. Ashwin outfoxes him by getting to drift in, spin away just a wee bit to hit him on the box as he swung through. As plumb as decisions can get. 125/6

    19.6 full, straight and the off stump has been flattened. This one reversed in late to beat the swing. Christian went for the glory hit but couldn't get under the length. Superb delivery. Outstanding stuff. 166/7

    4.5 the party is over. Shami takes an excellent catch running backwards at short third man. This is a full toss that angles away, Rahul looks to cleverly whip this behind square but ends up getting a leading edge. Shami called early, made ground and was in total control as it descended. Rahul has done his job though. 64/2
    3.2 drills this straight to mid on. Agarwal checked his shot, not sure why, and has to go as Shami takes a comfortable catch. 58/1
    9.2 the painful innings is over, pressure was building and Yuvraj has hit this straight to deep midwicket. Stepped out to pull, but didn't get any power behind that because he got it high on the bat. 97/3
    15.4 this time he picks the man out at deep midwicket. Another short ball outside off, Nair pulls, hits it very well but found Boult, who did superbly well to move low to his right to take this catch. Look of disbelief on his face as he walks off. 138/4
