    4.6 Sharp work from Rahane at backward point. He nails the stumps at the striker's. Southee nips this one back into Rahul after going wide of the crease. Rahul does not meet with the flick, the ball wanders away behind point. The pair want to sneak in a leg bye. Rahane moves quickly to his left, collects the ball and flings an accurate throw at the strikers'. Warner is well short 35/2
    3.6 And Kulkarni strikes, good retort. This one rears up from a back of a length and slides across Dhawan with the angle. He has a loose waft at it and edges it through to Sanju, who moves to his left to pouch that. 25/1
    5.1 Twin strike from the Royals, Kulkarni on a hattrick. SRH have been reduced to 35 for 3 . This was fuller jags in and on middle, Rahul seeks to flick it across the line but misses his stroke, he is struck on the pad, well below the knee roll. Rahul was crease-bound there and pays the penalty That would have smacked into middle and leg and given! 35/3

    14.1 that's a top ball from Tambe, he lets out a big roar. This tossed up ball pitches outside leg and spins past the bat and hits the middle stump. Ojha is crease-bound as he looks to flick and misses. 87/4
    16.3 Tambe gets his man now. He is elated and his hands aloft in joy. This one skids off the deck on middle, might have been a flipper. Morgan misses the reverse sweep and the umpire raises his forefinger 96/5

    18.4 Boult takes out Rahane, the latter throws his head back in disappointment. This was on a back of a length and on off, Rahane backs away and wants to slog it over the leg side. He can only drag it back onto the off stump off a bottom edge 118/4
    10.2 Bopara delivers the breakthrough. Samson has given it away. Fuller and outside off, Samson opens his bat-face and looks to steer through vacant slip. His opposite number - Ojha - dives to his right and plucks a smart one-handed catch. The umpire check for a no-ball, Bopara is okay, the catch is also clean. Samson departs for 26 off 30 64/1
    13.2 Smith picks out Warner at short cover. Karn flights this outside off, Smith goes hard on the drive but cracks it straight to Warner 84/2
    14.4 how soft is that? Chipped back at the bowler. Good length ball outside off, stops on the batsman. Karn aims to flick it away, instead he lobs it back to Bopara, who moves to his right and snags the catch 91/3
