    0.2 big blow here, Morne Morkel has knocked over the dangerous Warner, back of a length ball hits the top of off, Warner leaves a huge gap between bat and pad as he looks to drive, off stump finds itself yards behind its usual position 5/1
    12.2 outstanding bit of fielding there from Manish Pandey, results in the big wicket of Dhawan, the ball was hammered by Dhawan towards extra cover, Pandey dived to his right to stop that one, holds on to it on the second chance, and fires in an accurate throw to the keeper even before he gets up, Dhawan is caught short 89/3
    7.6 Ojha sends this one high up in the air as well, this wasn't off the middle though as he looked to pick the ball off the pads, top edge and the ball is swirling around, RTD gets under it, has plenty of time to visualise how he might make a mess of it, and then pouches it, Ojha punches his helmet as he walks off 69/2
    14.6 another run-out! Venugopal Rao's kamikaze innings is over, the ball is swept away towards deep midwicket, where Vinay Kumar seems to have over run the ball, adjusts well to stop the ball from reaching the rope, Pandey is there to help out, he fires in a superb throw, Venugopal is nowhere near making his ground, he had ambled the first, and then stumbled after stepping on Shakib's leg 121/4
    19.4 and now Sammy is dismissed, goes for the big hit, doesn't middle this length ball and holes out to Shakib at sweeper cover, what an action-packed innings this is! 155/7
    16.3 ripper from Shakib! drifts in and is a touch short, much too short for Anirudhha who was skipping down the track, the ball then turns away and Aniruddha can't get bat on it, stumped by a long way 127/5
    19.3 shortish ball from round the wicket, Holder goes for the big hit, he doesn't connect, Sammy had zipped through for the bye, wasn't he writhing in pain just a few minutes ago? in any case, he has motored through, Holder hasn't responded early enough, Uthappa lobs the ball to the bowler, Holder is run-out and he is furious, absolutely furious 155/6

    9.2 he's gone now, Uthappa looked to launch that against the spin, doesn't get enough on this length ball, holes out to long-on 77/3
    4.4 bowled 'im! the sort of dismissal which we have seen so many times from Gambhir, once again he looks to steer the ball to third man, inside edges onto the stumps, this match is utterly packed with incident 43/1
    7.3 length ball, Pandey skips down the track and slices the ball towards long-on, Steyn gobbles that up, Pandey's is out for a seven-ball two 55/2
    13.5 and it's over, a special innings from Yusuf that has all but earned KKR a place in the top two, he was going for another sixbut can only get it as far as Dhawan at deep midwicket, he knows the job is virtually done, clearly enjoyed this innings, punches gloves with suryakumar before walking off, raises his bat and an adoring crowd replies with raucous cheers 153/6
    9.4 there have been several run-outs already today, there's one more now, a length ball is hammered back at the bowler, who puts down a difficult chance to his left, ten Doeschate sets off for the run, there isn't much of a response from Yusuf, RtD has to scramble back, but he is a long way from safety when the keeper takes the bails off 78/4
    11.6 Shakib looks to join the fun, he skips down the track and throws his bat it, slices the ball, it goes high and reaches only as far as Jason Holder at long-off, no mistakes this time in the field 116/5
