2.5 caught at square leg! Mandeep tried to hook but the short ball was on to him far too quickly, the top edge lobbed tamely towards square leg and Bravo ran a few paces to his right and held a comfortable catch 20/2
    2.3 Michael Hussey was just speaking to the commentators on TV but he was focussed enough to dive to his left at a deepish leg gully and catch Gilchrist's whip off the pads. He was placed there precisely for that shot and it's worked. The ball traveled flat and fast to Hussey, who had it covered 19/1
    6.6 that's a rubbish ball, so short, and Vohra went back and pulled in the air towards cow corner, where he had hit his previous boundary. But Dhoni had moved a fielder there, and Hussey settled under the ball and caught it a couple of yards inside the rope. He could have hit it anywhere and he picked out the fielder 50/3
    14.1 Hussey's gone! Caught by Bravo at long off. Hussey cleared his front foot to try and loft over the leg side but Ashwin had bowled the carrom ball and Hussey ended up slicing it straight to long off 106/4
    15.1 a terrible shot. Gurkeerat tried to sweep that from so far outside off stump and the top edge flew towards short fine leg where Nannes took the catch 116/5
    16.4 that's Morris' first wicket in the IPL! Mahmood went back to pull a short of a length ball and was rushed for time. He mis-timed it towards midwicket where Ashwin dived to his left to take a sharp, low catch 127/6
    17.2 Morris has taken his first catch in the IPL. Sathish swung a length ball from outside off, but hit it straight to Morris, who had to move very little to get into position and take the catch at deep square leg 133/7
    17.5 caught by Vijay running to his right at long off! Bravo fooled Chawla with the slower offcutter and the batsman spooned his lofted shot high over extra cover. Vijay covered a lot of ground and judged the catch well 133/8
    18.2 caught at long off! The ball bobbled out of Bravo's hands but he was good enough to hold on. Harris lofted a length ball on the up and simply did not hit it far enough 134/9
    19.5 that's the end of the innings. Awana missed the swing for the fourth time and this time Praveen tried to run a bye to Dhoni, who was keeping without his right glove so that he could throw quickly and accurately. He hit the stumps direct, running out Praveen Kumar 138/10
