    2.6 he seemed a little too generous with that pull shot despite being late on it once before. Starc digs it in and it comes in at an awkward bounce, there is also a bit too much pace on the ball and he splices it to square leg 15/1

    7.1 Vijay's beaten and the off stump is knocked back! What a way to debut for your new franchise! It was a rapid legspinner which drifted in on middle and straightens just enough after pitching. Vijay was looking to guide it down to third man again. A lot of bemused looks as they check if it was bowled or stumped or if the keeper disturbed the bails. The third ump is roped in and replays show he is bowled neck and crop 35/4
    3.3 golden duck for the captain! What a ripper from Albie! Gets one to straighten and extracts a bit more bounce as well. All that combine to claim a faint edge as Karthik prodded forward and the keeper did the rest 16/2
    4.1 what a soft dismissal, caught down the leg side! Kohli high-fives his bowler and Bangalore are jubilant. Tiwary shuffled across to try and glance it fine but the ball, just short of a good length, runs off the face and Parthiv collects another simple catch 17/3
