12.1 The procession continues for Delhi. Dolly stumping for Karthik. Agarwal gives the charge, Abdullah lobs this up outside off. Agarwal is beaten in flight, can't loft it over the covers. Karthik does the rest 67/5
    0.5 Inswinging yorker. Boom. Iyer gone for a duck. This was hurled in on the blockhole, swings in. Iyer is late to bring his bat down in a bid to squirt it away. Trapped on the front pad in front of the leg stump. It would have grazed leg. The forefinger goes up 2/1
    5.2 Duminy has nicked off! Back of a length away-going ball outside off. Duminy is crease-bound as he has a slash at it and bottom-edges it to the keeper. Karthik and Wiese go up for a caught-behind appeal. Affirmative, says the umpire 36/2
    6.2 Big strike, Yuvraj is gone now! Good delivery from Aaron, banged in short and seams away outside off with some extra bounce at 146ks. Yuvraj can't resist himself, he has a waft at it and feeds an edge to Karthik 39/3
    6.3 Mathews has to walk back for a golden duck! He is on a hat-trick. This was also shortish, cramping Mathews for room. He looks to work it away after shuffling across and hopping up, instead he loops it in the air. AB runs across to his left from short midwicket and takes it at a square-leg region 39/4
    17.3 Kedhar Jadav holes out, the last recognised batsman perishes. This was a length-ball outside off, Jadhav clears his front leg, goes for an almighty swipe and hits it into the hands of Starc at deep midwicket. Starc is everywhere 92/9
    13.4 sixth pin down for DD. Fullish and angled in to beat the batsman's push and strike him on the back pad. This would have crashed into middle and leg. It was the slower one from Wiese and Coulter-Nile was hoodwinked. Kohli lets out a roar 72/6
    14.6 Starc nails the yorker and rattles the off stump! This was just too good for Mishra. Yorker comes in with the angle and tails away late from round the stumps, Mishra brings his bat down late and fails to keep it out 85/7
    16.3 Starc makes light work of Nadeem, third wicket for him. He fires in another pin-point yorker that swings away, Nadeem can't squeeze it out after backing away. Crashes into the off stump and Starc exults 90/8
    not out
    18.2 Have Delhi been bowled out? Yes, Joseph has been caught miles short. AB comes into the action. This was another slower ball outside off, pushed to backward point, Gayle collects the ball but fails to effect a direct hit. The back-up fielder fails to gather the ball, but AB de Villiers runs in from long-on and fires a direct hit at the bowlers'. Well, he is Neo, as Steyn put it! 95/10
