    0.3 duck it is! Superb effort from Duminy at first slip, diving to his left and cushioning the ball with both hands. Teasing outswinger from Zak again, bringing Gayle forward. He doesn't quite move his feet a lot, you know. Pushed at the ball with an open face, gets a healthy nick and that cordon was well packed for it 0/1
    18.1 goddim! A superb run out the last over, now he bowls one full enough that Kohli can't get under. The RCB captain tries to combat that with a whip of his wrists, and though they are perhaps the most powerful ones a current cricketer, this carries only as far as long-on 177/5
    11.2 he does seem to have that magic touch. It was a length ball, much like many AB has golf-swung over long-on many many times. This time though the bat turns just a bit in his hand and that takes some power off it. Just enough for Shami to take the catch 107/2
    16.2 131 kph, short ball has been pulled to short fine leg. The pace did Watson there. Also the lack of room to swing his arms. Went for the shot on instinct, hoping to beat Morris inside the circle, but just ends up ballooning a catch to him 170/3
    16.5 Shami, you legend! That was spectacular work in his followthrough, quick pick up and accurate throw to exploit an excited Sarfaraz stepping down hoping for a single. And he was only thinking about it. Kohli was too, had come down, but then returned to his crease quickly enough to send Sarfaraz scurrying too. But Shami was quicker than them. Left-handed pick-up, swiveled around, and as he did so changed the ball to his dominant right hand and nails the stumps. Sarfaraz dives and he was nowhere near close. Prior to all that, he did excellently to bowl a slower short ball outside off to make Sarfaraz mistime his chop 172/4

    18.2 he wont be there to finish the game. Watson does not celebrate. He simply offers applause to a fine innings. Goes up to de Kock as he walks away with a nod of the head. It was slower short ball, dug in and rising towards his shoulder, the batsman swings instinctively. The pull shot only takes the glove and goes to the keeper 184/3
    0.6 oh my word, what a catch that is. We've seen a lot of assisted catches near the boundary, but this might be the best of the lot. Watson runs back from mid-on after Iyer steps out and miscues a big hit. The ball is not middled, but it's still going three-fourths of the way to the long-on boundary. Watson is sprinting full-tilt, the ball is dropping over his shoulder, and he judges it perfectly. That's step one. His momentum is carrying him towards the boundary, and he flicks it backward just as he's about to go over the edge. Wiese is following him from mid-off, the ball is flicked a couple of feet from him, and he dives, grabs onto it, and finishes inches from touching the rope himself. Wow. Just wow. 11/1
    5.4 he's buckled. Watson goes short and gets it to rise to an uncomfortable height around his chest. No room to free the arms either. Samson goes for a pull, strikes it too high on the bat and offers a dolly to midwicket 50/2
