    0.4 Vijay perishes for a duck! Back of a length and on middle and leg, Vijay chips it feebly, Russell runs forward from midwicket and completes a good catch. The extra lift from Umesh foiled Vijay's stroke 0/1
    4.2 Kings XI have been reduced to 27 for 3, sharp work from Chawla. Sehwag wants to whip this length ball on middle and leg away, does so. But Chawla dives to his right at square leg and pulls off a smart, low catch 27/3
    3.5 Morne strikes! On the customary back-of-a-length side is Morkel, Saha hunts for another pull. This was not all that short to warrant the stroke. He can't connect well this time, much like the previous attempt. Gets a bottom-edge onto the thigh, rebounds to Yusuf at a widish slip position 23/2
    11.4 Maxi has holed out, Russell pulls off a stunning catch, diving forward from sweeper. Maxi makes room and carves it in the air, Russell runs forward, takes Maxi's flat hit and tumbles onto the ground. Maxi examines the bottom of the bat as he trudges back 90/4
    19.4 They hustle for a couple, fine throw from Tendo, Robbie whips the bails off. Bailey gone for 60. This low full toss was drilled down the ground. Bailey wants a couple, Tendo collects the ball quickly from long-off and fires a throw to the keeper. Robbie moves to his left, gathers it on the second bounce and catches Bailey short 154/8
    13.6 Crucial strike. Thisara is a dangerous batsman at the death. Russell delivers another short bumpy ball, Thisara backs away and mishits the attempted cut, finds Manish at backward point. He hops up and takes it 107/5
    17.3 Umesh Yadav has his third wicket. His inclusion has made a difference. This was fuller and on middle, whipped away straight down the gullet of Surya at long-on. Not middled, hit high on the bat and he holes out 131/6
    18.6 Axar finds Surya, much like Gurkeerat. He bends down for a massive slog-sweep over leg, but can only skew it to long-off off the base of the bat. Narine's first wicket in this IPL after his action was rubber-stamped 146/7
    19.6 this is an outstanding catch from Gambhir. Morne misses the yorker outside off, ends up bowling a full toss. Below the waistline, though, the TV umpire confirms it as well. Mitch backs away and slices it. Gauti leaps across to his left from backward point and completes the catch of the innings. He also intercepted a four there 155/9

    2.2 Sandy pins Robbie lbw. This was fullish and on off, Robbie shuffles across off and does not meet with the flick, rapped on the front pad. Struck in front of off and he has to depart. Sandy exults 16/1
    7.4 Gauti flashes, connects and nicks off. KKR's chase has been derailed. This was on a length and angling away outside off again, Gauti swishes and manages a bottom-edge, which is gobbled up easily by Saha 60/4
    4.3 how soft was that? This was back of a length and comes in on middle and leg, Manish aims to flick it away. Instead he chips it to Bails at short midwicket. Almost similar to Vijay's wicket. This may have stuck in the pitch and stopped on Manish. He rehearses the flick as he walks back 34/2
    6.5 What.a.catch from Saha. He said keeping was his primary skill and he shows it off. This looked like a legcutter that gripped in the pitch, did not come onto Surya, bounced extra as well. He looks to guide it away through the slip cordon but makes a mess of it. Off the face of the bat and pouched by Saha, diving across full-length to his right. End of a charming cameo from Surya. Replays show that it was the back-of-the-hand slower one 60/3

    7.5 Tendo out. Sandy's in-ducker does the trick again. KKR sink to 60 for 5. This was on a good length and comes in on off, Tendo aims for an across-the-line flick and misses, plumb in front. Thanks for coming, Tendo. Oh wait, replays reveal that Tendo had gotten an inside-snick on to front pad. Unfortunate.. 60/5

    17.4 Mitch pegs the middle stump back, bags the consolatory wicket of Russell. Fuller length and fired though by Mitch, Russell has a huge slog and misses. The bowler hits the stumps. Timber, but all too late. Russell takes high-fives and hugs from his team-mates in the dug-out. What.a.knock 155/6
