    1.3 dropped by a rickety-looking Zaheer running back from cover, but the recovery is good enough that Delhi capitalise on a run-out chance. Vijay was looking for that extra cover loft again, but Negi foxes him by holding the ball back. The batsman seemed to be reaching for it, the ball skewed up off the outside edge. Zaheer couldn't make the most of the opportunity, but a mix-up between the two batsman offers another one and this time Delhi do not miss. Karun Nair the man with a throw, and it zoomed in right at the base of the stumps for the wicketkeeper to do the rest 8/1
    10.4 these googlies are slipping through Kings XI's defences like Trojan horses. Mishy dresses them up as legspinners, pitching on and around off stump, Vohra thinks it will spin away and sets himself up for the cut. By the time he realises what is really happening, it is too late. Leg stump takes a pounding 59/5
    6.1 how bout that for a first ball in his 100th IPL game? Tossed it up over the batsman's eyeline, and Marsh is tempted. He rushes down the track, gets beaten by the dip, and de Kock does a good job behind the stumps. He had been blinded by the batsman, but stayed low, rose with and towards the ball down leg and flipped the bails over 37/2
    8.1 ooooh, that's another big blow! The appeal was instant, and insistent. Miller seemed to have decided he would combat spin with sweeps and Mishra has cottoned onto that. This is a googly that pitches marginally on leg stump and strikes him flush on the front pad. Height, good. Adjacent, yes. But HawkEye did show half the ball pitched outside leg. 52/3
    8.4 oh, he's bagged a duck. Mishra tosses this one up and finally Maxwell decides to go on the front foot. But he doesn't hold himself. back. Lofts, but has very little power on it because he couldn't get under it well enough. Long-off runs in and takes a good, low catch 52/4
    15.1 haven't seen him make much impact with the ball, but Negi's completed a superb catch at backward point. Axar goes back and is in two minds. Its a short ball, it had to be slashed away but the scoreboard pressure makes him wonder if he should go hard. In the end, he just slices the ball and Negi runs in, dives forward and takes it cleanly 73/7
    12.6 legcutter, Saha spotted it, waited on it and dabs it towards point. But he was also looking for a single, when his partner wasn't. Point hits direct and this is trouble. Saha does stretch, but has not dived and that will cost him. JP Duminy with the throw. 65/6
    18.5 big old slog and the Morris slower ball beats him and topples off stump. Yorkers are good, but sometimes you also need that odd bit of variation 99/9
    17.1 that's gone so high, but Morris looked perfectly comfortable getting under it. Mohit simply goes for a big hit. Just a big swing of the arms. The ball skews off the outside half and is then in the hands of the man at mid-off 90/8
