    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
