    13.3 slices this to point. Gowtham has beaten him in flight. Hales backed away to go inside-out but Gowtham slowed this down nicely to have him reach out, Hales didn't get much bat on it. Easily taken by Samson at point. 109/2
    2.1 chopped on! Shortened his length, got this to drift in from around the stumps, Dhawan looks to steer this past slip after first looking to sweep, but didn't have the room and ends up hitting it onto his stumps off an inside edge. His third failure in a row now. 17/1
    14.5 shapes to cut but this one spins back in the other way, keeps low and kisses the inside half of the bat as Buttler pouches a superb catch. Staying low was the key. Williamson asked if this was an appeal for lbw or caught behind. Umpire Nanda Kishore signalled that it was for caught behind and he's made the right decision. Sodhi gets his New Zealand captain. . First wicket in the IPL for him. 116/3
    18.5 another painstaking Pandey innings comes to an end. Was in no control of this lofted hit. Sliced this slower delivery to point, where Rahane moved a couple of steps back to complete the catch. Royals continue to surge. 143/6
    17.1 the inswinging yorker has done the trick. Gets this to bend back in a long way from outside off from around the stumps, Shakib jams his bat down late as the ball bounces into the stumps. 'Should I, should I not?' the ball thought to itself before disturbing the bails 133/4
    17.6 slashes this straight down the throat of third man. Yusuf looked to upper cut, this one didn't bounce as much as he would've liked. Easy catch, Archer continues to impress with every outing. 137/5

    19.5 opens up the leg side and pulls this short ball from outside off, but can only hit it as far as Stokes at deep midwicket. No timing whatsoever on that. 150/7

    2.2 pre-meditated from Tripathi, and he pays the price. Doesn't make an effort to suss out the length and just charges down the track. It's a little too shortish for his comfort and skids on at pace along a leg-sidish line before clattering into the stumps 13/1
    9.4 straight to midwicket. These are the kind of wickets you don't want to be giving away against an attack like the Sunrisers. A short of a length delivery, slower one that stops on him - it's the knuckle ball - and messes up his timing as he pulls off the lower part of the bat straight to the fielder 72/2
    10.2 ... and Sunrisers' sixth bowler knocks out Stokes' leg stump. Flat dart, fizzes in from around the wicket, not as short as Stokes anticipated. He swings his hands at a pull and only collects fresh air. Yusuf roars. No Nabi? no problem. It wasn't a great ball but Yusuf will take this wicket 73/3
    13.6 off the outside part of the bat. A legbreak that turns minimally and Buttler slices it in the air as he fails to get entirely underneath the stroke. Simple catch for Dhawan at long-off. Sunrisers right back into this 96/4
    18.3 brilliant catch by Saha! Another wide fuller one, slanted a long way across the left-hander Lomror and he throws his hands at it without moving his feet. Gets a thick outside edge and Saha flings himself to his left to take a superb, leaping catch 128/5
    19.5 gone. Gowtham has picked out long-off and that's the game. Fails to get hold of this fullish ball. Doesn't help that it's curving into him and he doesn't get the room he's looking for as a result. Chips it straight into the hands of long-off 139/6
