    5.5 Narine takes his butter-fingered fielders out of the picture by hitting Vijay's leg stump! Vijay moved a long way across his stumps and got down on one knee to sweep, he exposed his leg stump and Narine spun the offbreak past his front thigh and hit it 45/1

    10.5 Return catch, Narine strikes! Vohra is hanging around, though. They go to the TV umpire. This was pushed through flatter and quicker just outside off, he seeks to pull it but does not control it, lobbing it back to the bowler. Narine bends low to complete a clean catch. Umpire Dharmasena raises his forefinger 78/2

    16.6 Narine has his fourth wicket! Saha gets down on one knee to slog across the line but the length is quick and the pace is faster, it sneaks under his bat and bowls him 149/4
    16.3 finally they have caught one! Maxwell top edges a pull - the ball might have bounced a bit more than expected - and Botha comes running in from the deep midwicket boundary to take a well-judged catch. Once he has it safely, he celebrates with a rugby-like kick 143/3

    19.3 caught and bowled! Russell's short ball is too quick for Gurkeerat, who swivels towards the off and tries to pull. He gets a top edge that lobs towards short leg, Russell runs across and catches it easily 169/5

    3.3 caught at short midwicket! Uthappa simply chips the length ball off his hips in the air, Axar Patel moves forward quickly and dives to take the catch 31/1
    8.5 what a soft dismissal that is! The ball was short and Gambhir went on the back foot and simply lofted it so tamely towards long-on, Vijay came cruising in from the boundary and caught it easily 69/3
    7.3 he was timing it so well against the faster bowlers but Pandey has mis-timed this straight to long-on, a soft dismissal really, hit it flat and limply towards Axar. He dragged it from wide outside off 63/2
    10.5 bowled him! Yadav moved a long way across his stumps, exposing all three, to try and paddle the ball towards short fine leg, the length was too full and it beat the bat and hit the stumps 83/4
    14.6 caught behind! The short ball does it for Kings XI. Yusuf tried to ramp this short ball over the keeper and got an edge through to Saha, he almost walks off before the umpire raises the finger 136/5
    16.5 caught behind! Russell goes back to cut and gets a thick edge so that's a sharp catch by Saha to his right. He followed the ball superbly. Has Russell done enough to take KKR to the top of the table? 159/6
    17.2 Botha's been run out by a direct hit! The match is swinging again. Botha played the ball to extra cover and ran, Axar swooped on the ball, picked up and nailed the throw, catching Botha at least a foot and a half short 161/7
    19.4 caught down the leg side! That would have been wide had Chawla let it go but he tries to glance the short of a length ball and Saha does splendidly to move to his right to catch it. That was so wide outside leg, and he gloved it. 183/9
    19.2 it's all happening at Eden Gardens! Anureet bowls it in the blockhole outside leg to counter Chawla's movement outside leg stump. He inside edges the ball on to the pad and the ball rolls towards the bowler. Hogg charges for the single but Chawla sends him back. Anureet rushes to the ball, picks up, turns around and hits the stumps with Hogg well short 177/8
