    10.3 this is sensational from DK, not so much for the effort but for the alertness. This fizzing googly drifts in from length to hit Saha on the pad as he looks to defend, rolls to Karthik off the pad. By now, Saha is overbalanced and Karthik picks up the ball and breaks the bails even as Saha turns and looks to plonk the bat back in. The only reason why the third umpire was summoned perhaps was to check if the bails were broken by the gloves without the ball lodged in. 84/3
    7.1 Kuldeep traps Dhawan lbw. He then collapses in his followthrough while appealing. Kuldeep loops it up on middle stump, straight ball, Dhawan misses it, looking to drag it away to the leg side with a sweep. He is pinned on the back thigh in line with middle. That's pretty adjacent and KKR find their first breakthrough 56/1
    7.5 Kuldeep has dismissed Dhawan and Williamson in the same over. He leaps for joy and celebrates. Williamson knows he has nicked off and walks off. Tossed up on off and breaks away outside off, Williamson does not read the googly, and tickles an edge behind to DK. Sharp catch from DK to his right 60/2
    15.1 Backing up too far and Shakib's gone! Full on middle, this has been drilled back straight. This flicks Kuldeep's fingers along the way and smashes into the stumps even as Shakib is nowhere near the crease at the non-striker's end. This is a big, big moment in the game. 113/4
    16.5 the reverse sweep, but there's no timing because of the length. Straight to point. The bounced more than Hooda would've liked. First wicket for Narine on the night. 124/5
    18.1 gets more elevation than distance, Piyush Chawla running in from sweeper cover takes an excellent catch! Yusuf looked to go over long-off, sliced it. That said the ball was swirling, curved away late even as Chawla misjudged it as it descended. Somehow managed to stay low and complete it despite this being away from his body. 138/7
    17.5 stunning effort in the deep by Nitish Rana! This is yorker-length outside off, Carlos carves this with an opened bat face towards square third man, where he covers at least 20 yards around the ropes before diving. Recovers quickly and then throws right on the bounce to DK who whips the bails off to beat a diving Carlos. 134/6

    12.2 goes for another sweep, this time the umpire raises the finger. Rashid sets off on a victory lap! Huge moment in the match. Shapes to sweep, this is a length ball that spins back in to beat the sweep and hit him in front of middle and leg. 108/5
    3.2 Narine holes out to Brathwaite at mid-on. 113.4ks, slower knuckle ball on the leg stump, Narine attempts a loft but can only toe-end it in the air to Brathwaite inside the circle. Narine has done his job, though 40/1
    8.3 worked off the pads through midwicket. Rashid runs in from the deep, gathers the ball cleanly, and throws it to keeper. Saha does the rest. Rana chances a second. He slips after completing the first, still goes for the second, dishes out a desperate dive, but is caught short. The second wasn't on after the tumble. Fine throw from Rashid 87/2
    10.1 Oh, Uthappa! What have you done? Why would you want to reverse sweep the opposition's best bowler who can turn it a mile? Played too early, the ball drifted into middle and leg and flattened the leg stump. 93/3
    11.6 there's the key wicket and he can't remain unbeaten tonight, though. This is superb from Shakib. Gets the ball to drift back in a long way from around the stumps, skid through to cramp Karthik for room as he shaped to cut. This didn't turn and took the underedge onto the stumps. 108/4
    19.3 he's picked out Rashid at deep midwicket! Oh, dear. Surely that's the end of KKR's hopes? This was hit well, but he got more elevation than distance. Swirling in the air, Rashid came in from the ropes and then took it well with his palms facing upwards. Brathwaite's decision of going around the stumps to cramp the batsmen for room has worked so far. Is that the final nail in KKR's coffin? 160/9
    14.4 they've prised him out with the googly! Big, big wicket. He's off on a victory lap. Dhawan at a wide slip takes a smart catch. This is a googly that comes back in from length outside off, he goes for a hard cut shot but gets a thick outside edge. Dhawan's reflexes simply superb. 118/6

    18.1 the off stump has been flattened! Chawla went to wallop this over long-off, swung through early, missed it and heard the death rattle. Cross-seam delivery this from Kaul, landed just a touch ahead of length. Chawla didn't get anywhere close to that. KKR right on the edge. 145/7
    19.2 he's whipped this straight to Rashid at deep midwicket. Wasn't far from clearing the ropes, right intent. Just the execution was a little off. Mavi backed away, got under the delivery and hit it well. Rashid was on the move to his left, kept his composure and took this. The crucial thing from KKR's point of view is Shubman Gill will be on strike. 160/8
