    2.3 taken! short, Vijay half-pulls, half-flicks, and the top-edge goes way up in the air. Swirls all the way as it comes down, and Beuran Hendricks is running back from the 30-yard circle towards the deep square leg boundary, and is facing away from the field as he takes it, inches from the rope. Top catch. 13/1
    10.3 what a ball! All those balls that went straight on were maybe playing on KP's mind, and he pushed forward here and was playing for the angle rather than for the turn. Unfortunately for him, it does turn, and turns appreciably to beat his outside edge and crash into middle and off. 84/2
    18.1 wickets tumbling here, a short slow ball there from Hendricks, bowled from the back of the hand, sits up for Karthik, who looks to hook that away for six, but doesn't get enough on it and holes out to deep square leg 155/6
    16.5 this time the yorker has gone completely awry, it is a nice put-it-away full toss, but in T20 even this sort of delivery can get you a wicket, Duminy wanted to put it away but he doesn't hit it well enough clear Maxwell at wide long-on 140/3
    17.1 the promotion for Jadhav doesn't work as he perishes first ball, it was a length ball to hit out of the park, but Jadhav hits it only as far as deep midwicket where Maxwell is waiting 144/4
    17.5 full ball on legstump from around the wicket, Sandeep has decided that is going to be his strategy, and it is working for him, Mayank goes for the reverse-sweep, he misses and loses his leg stump 151/5

    18.4 Maxwell! can this man do anything wrong this season? sensational catch from him, Parnell did hammer this one as Hendricks gifted a length ball, the ball goes high and drops sharply down, Maxwell skips back towards the rope, and he's less than a yard from the boundary when he gets his hands on the ball, he doesn't collect it on the first time, but as the ball drops he sticks out his left hand to pluck that one, a wide grin shows how much he enjoyed that 158/7

    7.5 Sehwag goes for it again, again Duminy bowls it full and wide, Sehwag can't get enough power on this one, which means he find the man at sweeper cover 84/2
    6.2 and Tahir has a wicket straightaway, flighted overpitched ball, Vohra looks to launch that out of the park, it's a good-looking shot but he picked out the man at long-off, end of another hugely impressive cameo from the 20-year-old 67/1
    8.6 Tahir has got the big one, the googly has crashed into the off stump, Maxwell misses the swipe, Maxwell has to go, Tahir has already gone off on his usual over exuberant celebratory run 92/3
    9.5 the game is changing here, dramatically, Punjab have lost Miller now, he was looking to send that down the ground, he doesn't connect, the ball connects with leg stump, Punjab have lost four in three and a half overs 94/4
    14.6 full ball outside off, driven to short cover, was that a bump ball? the third umpire is called for after much delay, there wasn't too much of an appeal from the fielder Parnell initially, but the replays show the batsman is out, hit the ball just after it bounced and chipped it straight to Parnell, another wicket for Daredevils 127/5

    18.3 taken! this game is back alive, Bailey perishes, a needless big hit, don't think he picked the googly, and that flies off the inside half of the bat towards deep midwicket, where Jadhav takes a good diving catch, two rookies will have to finish the job now 155/6
