    8.1 now it's Parthiv's turn.. He is beaten by the extra bounce on this pitch.. Parthiv wanted to clip it to the leg side, but this slower delivery got big on him and the leading edge just popped up for the cover fielder.. 67/2
    7.4 finally KKR strike! This was the offcutter and Takawale looked to work it away on the leg side, got hit right in front of the middle stump.. Easy decision for the umpire 67/1

    15.5 that's a corker from Narine! It has to be a very good ball to beat someone in the form of his life and it is. This is tossed up further, spins in and beats the inside edge of the bat, flicks the front pad and then takes the off bail .. 122/3
    18.4 and he's gone... ironically to a ball that he timed so well.. Probably his best connection of the day.. It was full and wide and he crashed it over point, but straight to deep point..Gambhir is pumped 141/4
    19.4 this is a blinder! this is madness.. this is the maddest baddest ever catch.. AB did what AB does.. Whacks the short of length delivery to deep midwicket, where Lynn lines himself up for the catch.. but he slips.. Despite that, he somehow straightens his body on the ground, keeps an eye on the ball, arches his body back and takes a catch sitting down.. freakish catch.. KKR are stealing this one.. Lynn is a hero.. watch that catch to believe that.. 145/5
