    5.4 knocks over leg stump! Sensational bowling from Chahal. After sowing doubts with big turning legbreaks, he sends down the flipper. Very quick, a shade short, on leg stump, tempting the batsman to back away and cut and beating him for pace. So Chahal is not just turning the ball off the pitch, but skid on too. 23/2
    2.2 top-edges the pull and Umesh strikes early again! It's a short ball, Gambhir tries to drag it from outside off. It gets a bit big on him. The bat face turns in his hand. The ball has no timing on it as it goes up and Chahal jogs back at square leg to take an easy catch 7/1
    13.5 thick outside edge to short third man. It's almost like he's a fast bowler. Fires it full and wide outside off - almost past the wide marker. Iyer reaches out again but this one is drifting away and he won't be able to get it into the leg side. It lobs straight to the fielder there 98/3
    19.4 taken at long-on. Pant has produced some sensational shots. He looks for another, against a slower ball outside off, but this time it comes right off the bottom of the bat. Goes high instead of long and AB de Villiers takes a striaghtforward catch 170/5
    15.3 Siraj runs to his right and lunges to hold on at short third man. Maxwell is done by Chahal's slowness. It's tossed right up at a length outside off, and he looks to go over square on the off side with a reverse sweep. Ends up slicing it because he's through the shot too early. An indifferent season continues to go badly for Maxwell. Royal Challengers, like most teams, will be happy to see him gone in the 16th over 105/4

    4.3 horrendous running and De Kock has ended up sacrificing his wicket. There is no run there. De Kock thinks so, but his no either isn't accepted or isn't heard, as Kohli keeps taking strides down the pitch as he watches the ball roll towards backward point. In the end, Kohli is halfway down, De Kock is stranded and he crosses over to give his wicket away 29/2
    1.6 nervous Roy at deep backward square. Looks like he's held on! Vohra stops halfway through a sweep against a leg side ball. It's a top edge that hangs up teasingly for Roy who might have lost it early on in the air because he looked very nervous as he ran in. But he manages to get down quickly and he has his fingers around the ball 9/1
    10.6 get out of here Trent Boult! Someone check if that isn't a robot there! This is sensational. A one-handed leap to his right at deep square after being wrong-footed to his left, then a landing backwards and a cobra pose to keep his chest from touching the rope! Soft signal out. Replays say - OUT. Wow. Unbelievable. It's a full toss on the pads and it's flying, flat over Boult's head because Kohli has got good power on that flick. It's a stunning recovery from Boult. A leap backwards, holding on with the right hand, landing on his stomach and then stopping all that momentum to complete it. Gets back on his feet and even he's in shock. 92/3

    15.5 144. 8 kph. And it's good enough to beat Anderson, who is swinging for the fences. Done by pure pace. This is what the non-millenials say you miss, I hit. 148/4
