    9.1 he has knocked him over with a length delivery! Smith was looking to hoick it over to the cow-corner boundary but drags it on to his stumps. Royals have got the danger man out. With 11 overs to go, CSK in a spot of bother 65/4
    2.2 he missed him first ball, but he has the man on the second! McCullum looks to pull this flatter delivery over midwicket but gets hurried by the ball, doesn't get it off the middle and lobs an easy chance to mid-on 15/1
    5.3 that's the end of Raina, the extra bounce does it. Morris slants it across Raina at good pace and the batsman looks to steer it to third man. But this is too close and he feathers an edge to the keeper 38/2
    6.2 another one goes down! Superb catch by Morris at long-off. Faf looked to attack the flighted delivery and almost beats the fielder. But Morris, who is a bit inside the boundary, has to leap up to grab that one. He falls backwards but he is safely inside the boundary 39/3
