    10.4 the flipper has done the trick. Smith plays back and across to one that skids back in from middle, missed it completely and the umpire took little more than a couple of nanoseconds to raise the finger. Not quite the 100-metre dash from Tahir this time, I'm disappointed. Relief for the Delhi Daredevils. They needed that bigtime! 112/1

    11.2 the bowling change has done the trick. Of all deliveries, it's the full toss that's rewarded Morris. It was a full toss, it looked like he rolled his fingers over the ball, McCullum was through with the wild swing even before the ball got to him, and the ball hit the base of middle stump 116/2
    11.6 two wickets in the over. First with a full one, now with the short ball. Oh, the short ball has got Raina yet again. This one was well-directed, on middle, Raina hopped across to work it behind square, but picked out the man at short fine leg. As easy as they come for Karun Nair. His feet were up in the air when he made contact. 117/3
    16.5 another one bites the dust, and Tahir is off on his celebratory run. DK walks across to sweep, but only manages a top edge which JP Duminy takes diving low and forward at short fine leg. 142/6
    14.3 he's fallen to a short ball. Made room to cut, but the ball skid straight on, all Jadeja managed was a faint edge which was well pouched by Quinton de Kock, who got up with the bounce to make it look ridiculously easy. Gujarat Lions are losing momentum very quickly 130/4
    16.4 poor temperament or poor stroke? I'd say a mix of both. Why would you do that when you can simply bunt the ball into the big gaps for a single? Beautifully tossed up by Tahir outside off, Kishan goes for glory, but only manages a top edge that is well taken by Duminy at cover. The slide continues 142/5

    3.4 skews it to Raina, who takes a simple catch at cover. De Kock was like a cat on a hot tin roof. Failed to time the ball whatsoever. This one was a slower one, he got nowhere near the pitch but went through with the lofted stroke over cover, only managed to skew it in the air to the Lions skipper. 12/2
    1.3 into the big bucket hands of Faulkner at mid-on. Once again, the late swing has got him. Samson looks to flick, but the full fall swings away to take the leading edge, and Faulkner takes an excellent catch running backwards. The move to promote Samson to open hasn't worked, but then with Iyer not around, don't think they had too many options. Just the start Lions would have hoped for. 2/1
    3.6 poor ball, but hey, it's a wicket-taking one. Length ball sliding into middle and leg, Nair whips it straight to Tambe at short fine leg. An embarrassed look on Dhawal's face, he knew it wasn't a wicket-taking delivery. Raina is the first to run up to him and ruffle his hair. Delhi Daredevils are in a crisis here 16/3

    17.1 is that the gamechanger? More importantly from Daredevils' point of view, Morris is back on strike. Back to the delivery, this was a slow off cutter which he landed at length on middle, JP looked to swing over midwicket, but the bat face turned in his hand to skew the ball up in the air, Bravo running backwards called loud and clear, and judged it to perfection. Is there a twist? 144/5
    10.4 he's hit that like a rocket, but PK does exceptionally well at deep square leg. He wristed that powerfully from middle and off, but Praveen picked it off the bat immediately as he ran in a couple of paces, and then dived forward to complete the catch. 57/4
