    7.5 foxed by the wrong-un. Shapes to cut but the ball breaks back in sharply from middle and off, Vijay was cramped for room but went through with the stroke, missed it completely as the ball crashed into middle and leg. Chawla is delighted, and why not? Classic legspinners' dismissal 47/2
    3.4 excellent catch at deep midwicket. It was a length ball angling in, Vohra flicked it well over the infield, but it was almost as if he forgot there was a man there. Shakib ran around a few yards to his right, dived to complete a good low catch 21/1

    10.4 first wicket for Narine since his comeback. This one was another skidder outside off, it wasn't that short, Saha shaped to cut but the ball kept a touch low, took the bottom edge as Uthappa, who got up with the bounce, pouched it on the second attempt. The ball bobbles out, and Uthappa may have held it against the grille of his helmet 59/3
    12.1 that is a body blow, Yusuf strikes off his first ball. Miller shapes to cut, but the ball kept coming back into him, was cramped for room, got a healthy deflection that Uthappa held onto quite nicely this time. Miller's poor form continues. 72/4
    14.5 what have you done, Maxwell? He was hell bent on playing the reverse sweeps and the switch hits. Turned too early, showed well in advance what he wanted to do to the bowler. The ball was tossed up on middle and leg, he struck it well but picked out Piyush Chawla at cover. KXIP's slide continues 94/5
    16.6 have to say that's poor temperament from Axar Patel. Looks to go down town, but was done in by the slow off-cutter that grips on the surface, he can only manage to lob it high into the night sky, Suryakumar Yadav settles underneath that one and pouches it safely at mid-off. 108/6
    17.6 the slide continues. This was banged in short, rolled his fingers across the delivery as well, Mohit shaped to pull but was too early into the stroke, lost control of the stroke eventually as the ball deflected off the glove through to Uthappa 115/7
    18.3 looks for the yorker, turns out to be a low full toss, thumped to sweeper cover. There was never a second there, Russell fires a rocket throw to Uthappa who takes the bails off. Sahu, who turned for a non-existent second run, was more than halfway down the pitch even as his partner stay put at the non-striker's end. Marsh lets out a cry of anguish. He isn't too happy with the running. 118/8

    8.3 a wicket, finally, and it has come about because of misjudgment. It was too full on middle, Uthappa went across to sweep, but got into a tangle. Missed it completely and he was struck plumb in front of middle. Easy decision for umpire C Shamsuddin 82/1
    10.5 one of the better catches you would see this season. Gambhir looks to turn it wide of midwicket, but the ball bounces a bit more than he expected, it was the googly, he turned the bat face early, and so the ball lobbed in the air. There was no one at midwicket, and so it looked like it would fall in no man's land. But Glenn Maxwell anticipated well and hared in, timed his dive to perfection. Stretched full length forward to pull off the catch inches from the ground. Ensured the ball was lodged in his hands safely even as his elbows hit the ground. Tremendous athleticism, but surely it has come too late for KXIP? 97/2

    13.1 beats him with a straighter one. This one drifts back in from round the stumps, Pandey plays for the turn and looks to drive, but the ball holds its line. Once he missed, it was headed to hit middle of middle. Muted celebration in the KXIP camp. 110/3
    15.5 looks to fetch the slog from outside off, can only get a top edge to short third man. Easy catch. Not needed at this stage, especially with victory within touching distance 123/4
