    2.1 off the inside edge and onto the stumps! Rahane walked across toward the off side a little bit and the ball probably nipped in just a bit, Rahane went for an uncharacteristic slog and only got an edge 10/1
    19.1 slower ball does it as he removes Faf with a return catch. Back of the hand slower ball around leg stump, it wasn't full for Faf to slog and he top-edged it very high for Mohit to get under it on the leg side. Good start to the over from Mohit 149/5
    7.6 whattacatch, KP is gone! Full on the pads, KP flicks and Manan Vohra times his jump very well at midwicket to grab it with both hands over his head. That was going at a pretty good speed. They check for the no ball and it's fine 65/2
    10.1 strikes first ball, Perera holes out to long-off! It wasn't a great delivery - short and wide and going away further with the angle - Perera threw his bat at it and found long-off 76/3
    17.5 slower ball, Smith lofts it high and he's gone! It was back of length legcutter around leg, Smith waited for it lofted it high on the off side and Miller got under it rather easily while coming in from the deep 139/4
    19.2 for so long the crowd had been waiting for Dhoni to get strike, so many comments had been poring in that Dhoni will do it in the slog overs and he slams a full toss straight to long-on! It was a low full toss around off and he sent it straight down to Maxwell 149/6
    19.6 in the block hole outside off, pushed down to long-off and they try the second but a sharp and flat throw from Maxwell at long-off means Irfan falls short 152/7

    14.6 oh, he's gone, caught behind! Short, flat and turning away, Vijay cuts and gets an edge and Dhoni takes the catch with both gloves! Do Kings XI have something to worry about here? 112/3
    12.2 that's an unnecessary sweep from Vohra for a straight delivery, it pitched right in front and he played across the line. Finger went up immediately 97/1
    14.1 that's rattled his stumps! It was short, straight and flat on the stumps, Marsh made more room than was required to work it to the off side and missed the ball completely 103/2
    16.2 that's the third wicket for M Ashwin, he's got Miller too! He tossed it up on middle stump, Miller made room early and went for the big shot down the ground, but he didn't middle it. KP came under it easily at long-off 119/4
