    4.3 taken at deep square! Another short ball that looks to be on its way, but Colin de Grandhomme is stationed at deep square to snap this high to his right. He's five yards in from the boundary for some reason - strange on this small ground. But he's done the job. A huge wicket. Not the greatest ball - short and heading into the body 36/1
    4.6 at deep square again! Umesh's extended spell has yielded both openers. Short ball at off stump, he gets too far under it for the hook and it sails high. Siraj is calm under it and takes with the reverse cup. Umesh has done everything that was asked of him by his captain. Superb spell 41/2
    5.2 he's guided it straight to slip! Oh this is turning bad very fast for Punjab. Short of a length ball outside off and he's looking for the single to third man. It's not done too much - no crazy movement, no extra bounce. It's just a supremely placed shot to Kohli at second-ish slip 41/3
    11.5 and he's picked out deep midwicket. Kings XI falling apart here. Finch picks up this length ball from middle and off and fails to get hold of this slog, skews it straight into the hands of Kohli in the deep 78/6
    6.5 bowled him! Good old spinner's wicket - keep the single option open to a nervous batsman and bowl at his stumps. Stoinis looks like he wants to push it through covers but has pushed his front foot too far forward in anticipation. Yorks himself and loses his off stump 50/4
    8.5 is there a touch on that? Sounded like it! Parthiv thinks it's out too as he goes down leg side to complete a take. Mayank looking to flick this. The umpire goes to the leg umpire...so he thinks there's a touch on this. Asks for the third umpire with a soft signal out. This doesn't look good for Mayank. Full ball down leg side and the bat is enough of a distance away to prove there's no pads involved. Parthiv has taken it cleanly too. 61/5

    11.6 has Ashwin run himself out here? He's put in a dive that may have just saved him, No, in fact, it hasn't. That's pretty incredible. A wide, bad throw but Ashwin is nowhere in the frame as Parthiv breaks the stumps. The Kings XI captain dropped this length ball into the covers and just set off for the single but was sent back by an uninterested Axar. Kings XI in quite the mess here 78/7
    12.4 has he nicked off here? Yes, sounded like a feather. Tye tries to pull this shortish one that gets a little too big on him outside off and gets a mild top-edge that goes through to the keeper. Seems like he wanted to review that. At least that was the signal to the umpire but he ends up walking right past him 79/8
    13.6 length ball that keeps a little low around off, worked away to mid-on where there's a misfield and they decide to try and capitalise on it by stealing a second. Not a bad plan, except that they don't account for the fielder recovering in time and firing a dead accurate throw that grazes Moeen's hand and takes out the stumps. Mohit is just short of his ground. Oh, and the fielder was AB de Villiers! 84/9
    15.1 back of a length outside off, punched between wide long-on and deep midwicket. They try to push back for the second and has there been another run out? Yes. The bat's in the air as the zingers light up. Axar pays the price for failing to drag the bat across. Simply hangs it loose in the air and then tries to plant it down. But it's too late and he has to continue running in that direction towards the change rooms 88/10
