• 2.3 Pant lobs it up, slip completes the catch. Is it the second bouncer? The umpires are checking....it's just under the shoulder. We all know the theory. Short ball to Narine. Boult goes with that, cramps him on the hook and gets it to tickle the top edge. Pant leaps up, one-handed, but he can't hold on. Slip has a few yards to cover behind and completes a simple catch 7/1
    18.3 slower ball, miscues as he tries to loft it over the off side and sends it soaring into the sky. Gambhir settles under it at cover. End of a top innings 193/6

    17.2 bowled him! Very good delivery from Boult, almost the perfect delivery to Russell. Fires it in around leg stump and rolls his fingers over it to slow it up. It then dips really late with Russell swinging for the fences, and takes out leg stump 178/5
    19.2 tame! Very soft dismissal. A bit of room outside off and he flays this with a flat bat, but picks out point. Gill having a tough start to his IPL career 200/7
    19.6 and another wicket. What a last over this has been Curran steps down the track and chips this in the air, straight into the hands of long-on 200/9
    19.5 Chawla comes down the track for a big hit. A non-turner again, pretty wide of Chawla, and he was probably expecting it to turn into him, but as he doesn't, he skews it in the air off the outside of the bat and the keeper settles under it 200/8

    10.5 short ball, downfall. Another batsman finds the fielder off a half-tracker. It's the pace that's doing it. So slow from Kuldeep, halfway down the pitch. It's a googly but at that length it doesn't matter. Maxwell just has to generate too much power on this occasion. Mis-times and finds deep midwicket 113/6
    9.3 straight toe extra cover. The Tewatia experiment ends quickly. It's a length ball outside off and he can get neither power, or elevation as he tries to clear the fielder there. Russell, the man, slightly wrongfooted - moving to his left - but holds on above his right shoulder 97/5
    11.3 bowled him. Narine with a nice loopy offbreak on length, not a harmful delivery. The kind you block with a smile in a Test match. Morris has a mission though, and a steep target. Makes room and tries to go over extra cover. Misses it completely. That's his 100th IPL wicket 116/7
