    2.1 Sandeep's got Gayle again, anges it across Gayle, on a good length around off, it starts swinging away, Gayle goes after it, and edges it through to the keeper 8/1
    5.3 he's gone this time, Parthiv makes some room, comes out and tries to loft the length ball over the off side, he ends up slicing it, and they have a sweeper in place to take the catch 26/3
    2.2 this is a very, very late reaction from the umpire on the appeal, but he's given Kohli, the batsman moved across to a length ball which was angled down the leg side, tried to flick it, there was a clear sound as ball passed the bat, it was dying on the keeper, he took it in his right glove, but it seems to have just brushed the ground for an instant after that, they go to the third umpire, it is not a front-foot no-ball, and they think the catch is also clean 8/2

    15.4 no miracle from AB tonight, Balaji goes full and wide, AB reaches out and slices it high and safely into the hands of sweeper cover 125/7
    9.3 Yuvraj's struggle is over for tonight, he skips out, tries to go over midwicket, the turn takes the outside edge, and slip is waiting, Sehwag takes a sharp catch in front of his face, maiden IPL wicket for Shivam Sharma 50/5
    11.1 Morkel has had one hit too many, he goes back and tries to pull a length offbreak, Bailey takes the top edge at short third man 76/6
    19.2 Starc clears front leg and slices a slog high in the air, Miller wants the catch, he runs in a long way from long on, dives forward and holds on 153/9
    16.3 Johnson responds with a 144.5 kph short ball, Harshal tries to make room but it cramps him on leg stump, he opens the face and glides it straight to the keeper 133/8
