    0.2 caught at point! Zaheer strikes second ball on his comeback. The length was good and the line closer to off stump, Sehwag pushed forward and firmly and the ball flew off the outside edge towards the fielder at point, who was standing rather close. Mathews took it well 1/1
    2.6 this is some comeback from Zaheer! He's blown two huge holes in the Kings XI hull. Vohra moved forward and outside leg to try and make room but ended up being cramped by Zaheer's good length ball. It bounced a bit more as well. Vohra tried to dab at it awkwardly and only managed to edge it through to the keeper 10/3
    1.1 He's struck first ball! Marsh has been given lbw. Duminy fired the ball full and angling into the left-hand batsman from round the wicket, Marsh was caught on his crease and struck in front as he played across the line. That looked pretty adjacent. The umpire took a while to raise his finger and before he did the fielder at slip - Yuvraj - had collected the ball and broken the stumps at the striker's end. So there was an appeal for a run out too, but Marsh was then given lbw. Replays show that the ball might have been clipping leg stump, but Marsh would have been given run out had he not been given lbw 6/2
    3.3 this is a procession. Meek and embarrassing. Saha pokes at one from his crease with no footwork and edges it, Jadhav stoops low and to his right to catch it. Good length on a tight line outside off from the bowler, nothing extraordinary though 10/4
    18.4 Miller's gone too. It's been a sorry start for KXIP and it's a sorry finish. Coulter-Nile bowled the ball full and wide outside off stump, not letting Miller hit to his favoured leg side. Miller reached out for the ball, got under it and played a lofted drive straight to the fielder on the cover boundary. Coulter-Nile has four wickets 104/8
    7.6 lbw! Mishra slowed his pace and drifted the ball on to leg and middle and got it to turn towards off. Bailey moved his front foot across to sweep but played too early and was hit on the pad. That looked pretty good 37/5
    9.5 pulled away, and he's been caught at deep square leg! Coulter-Nile went round the wicket and angled the ball into Perera, pitching it short of a length. Perera pulled, hitting the ball hard but flat. Saurabh Tiwary came running in from the boundary and slid, getting his hands under the ball as it was dying on him while continuing to slide. That's a smart catch. 45/6
    18.1 holes out to long-on! Patel was on the front foot as he tried to flat-bat a short of a length delivery from Coulter-Nile, the angle from round the wicket denied him the room too. He hit it straight to Agarwal 102/7
