    15.2 slow again, and this time the slog is played way too early. Slices the shot, and it's another skyer. Swirls in the air, but Buttler's very safe 135/3
    0.4 a golden duck for Lewis this time! It's an overpitched half-volley outside off and Lewis wants to flay that through cover. It's the right stroke and the right plan, but downright awful execution. His feet are rooted to the crease, he doesn't account for the little bit of inswing, despite watching it from the other end. A thick inside edge clatters into the stumps. 1/1
    14.2 too cheeky, and Kishan pays the price. Full toss outside off, and Kishan opens his bat's face to ramp it over the keeper. Doesn't manage to get the angle he wants, and therefore in the air for ages. Buttler collects and finally the partnership ends after almost 14 overs 130/2

    15.4 first-ball duck! Full on off, and pushed to cover for a quick single. Rohit calls early, but that's super dangerous. Rahane collects, dives forward, and then throws under-hand. Off go to zing bails, and out goes Rohit! 136/4
    18.1 full on off, and lifted off his pads towards the leg side. Not hit well enough, and Klaasen - at wide long on - takes an easy catch. Looks like it's the knuckleball that earns Archer the wicket 153/5
    18.4 crashes into middle stump! Full on leg stump, and Hardik tries a leg-side slog. Misses, and the ball hits his pad and then cannons into his stumps 158/6
    18.5 and McClenaghan's out! Comes from around the wicket and this is full on off stump. Almost a yorker, and the batsman can't connect. On a hat-trick 158/7

    5.4 finds midwicket! The pressure was building and the fielder was pushed to the edge of the circle to protect the over. It's another cutter, around middle and leg. Rahane gets enough bat on a wristy whip, but he picks out midwicket at a comfortable height too. The reverse-cupped hands over his head does the job for Krunal. Rahane gestures that he wanted to hit the ball wider of the fielder, like all batsmen try to do. 38/2
    2.2 picks out mid-on! I'm not sure what kind of a shot that was. Flat and straight, Tripathi just chips a drive to mid-on, did he try to go over? Or past him? That does not seem like a very clever shot, did it hold up? Something definitely did happen that resulted in a tame bunt to the fielder. Krunal doesn't care. 14/1
    16.2 holes out to deep midwicket! Is that the end for Royals? Full on off, and to be honest, in Samson's arc. The slower delivery does the trick though, and finds the toe end of Samson's bat. In the air for ages, but too simple for Hardik 125/4
    14.1 yorker on leg stump! Stokes shuffled across to the off side to try and clip it off his toes, but misses. Tried to take advantage of short fine-leg being inside the circle, but Hardik went wicket-to-wicket 110/3
    16.3 The zing bails light up! Super fast (144kph) on off stump and angling right into Buttler. He tries to defend it straight, but the ball goes between bat and pad. Crashes into middle stump 125/5
    17.1 diving catch from Kishan! Angling away from Klaasen, and he tries to punch away from his body. The offcutter goees across Klaasen, and therefore takes the outside edge. Kishan's forced to dive diagonally forward but he's safe with the gloves. Three wickets in six balls... 125/6
    19.1 goes short outside off, and Archer's pull takes the top edge! Hardik gets under it, and manages to keep his composure 158/7
