    0.5 one more. Qdk has holed out. Russell has another and Delhi are in early trouble once again. Hits a back of a length again, but wider outside off. De Kock drags it but the pace of the delivery means he gets there much later. Skews off the bat and hangs in the air for a while before Hogg settles under it at deep square leg 2/2
    0.3 full and straight and plumb in front. An awful stroke from Iyer and his disastrous season continues. Russell pitches this one much fuller but on middle and off. iyer brings his front foot out with a forward press, but misses a flick after playing dangerously across the line. The bat came down from a 45 degree-ish angle. Misses and gone. 1/1

    4.6 given, Narine has his first. Flat again from Narine, pitches on off, a hint of spin takes it towards middle and leg. Samson's feet are nowhere, leaden-feet. The ball sneaks through his flick and hits him in front. Was there too much bounce? No, says the umpire 32/3

    16.2 slower ball and given. Dragged the length back this time, the legcutter doesn't cut, skids on and strikes Nair in front of leg. May be clipping that leg stump. End of an exceptional innings. 137/4
    18.4 the slow, low dipping full toss. And straight. Does for Billings who cannot read the slower ball. Misses it after shuffling across to sweep. Crashes into middle and leg stump. Could still be a big wicket. Billings was looking lethal 174/6
    16.4 gone. Morris goes for 0. 134 kph, good length on off. Morris backs away but gets a thin inside edge onto off. Excellent comeback from Umesh. Morris gave himself room but not enough. 137/5
    19.2 slower ball and gone. Takes a lot off pace off the ball and Brathwaite cannot generate enough pace on his scoop. Gets just enough bat on it to carry to short fine leg. Again, a big wicket. What a blitz. 182/7
    19.6 excellent finish from Russell. Yorker on off, pushed to long-on. The throw is a tad wayward but Robin picks up and under-arms the throw onto the stumps. A run-saving effort from Uthappa. 186/8

    17.4 gone. And that should be the match. Full and wide outside off, Uthappa backs away and slices the cut, but straight to backward point. Had to reach for it and did not get enough bat on it, to get the ball in front of point 153/8
    2.6 gone, Zaheer gets the early wicket. And a huge wicket too. Fullish on off, Gambhir was standing on off, throughout his stay. Tries to flick this through midwicket but is through the shot too early. A leading edge is taken by cover who had to backtrack a few steps. 21/1
    4.4 given. Full on middle and leg, Chawla gets nowhere with his feet. Backs away, then comes back into the line. By the time, all his movements are done, the ball has sneaks through and hits him in front of leg. A little bit of doubt, would that have drifted down leg? Was it high? Umpire Erasmus says no to either 33/2
    7.5 slower short delivery on middle, was that a legcutter? Pathan picks out short fine leg, not a great shot. Brathwaite takes pace off the ball and Pathan sees an opportunity to get the ball past fine leg, but instead swivels into his pull and doesn't smash it keep it down. Straight to Mishra. 58/3
    11.2 superb catch from mid-on. Full on leg, from wide of the crease. Suryakumar look to go over mid-on, but got it off the toe-end. Horribly timed. Shreyas Iyer runs in from mid-on, doesn't look like he'll get there but dives full length to get both hands on it. One of those hands come off the ball but he pouches it in the end, excellent catch 94/4
    13.3 picks out deep square leg. 132 kph from Brathwaite on middle, shortish delivery. Sathish pulls and doesn't bother keeping it down. Did not hit it as well as he would have liked. Morris runs around and takes a quality catch, his hands reverse cupped. 107/5
    16.6 what a catch! A match-turning effort from Mishra. Slow flight on off from Mishra, Russell runs down and smashes the ball back at Mishra's face. Mishra hurriedly gets his hands up in an effort to save himself. And the ball sticks. Could have been very very dangerous if the ball burst through his hands. He takes it and fires the ball back at the stumps. 151/6
    17.2 what is Holder doing? A golden duck. Excellent low full toss on leg, Holder misses the flick. the ball hits his pads and rolls back up the pitch. Holder runs down, had no idea of where the ball had rolled. It had gone straight to Morris who ran in and under-armed the throw onto the stumps with Holder well out. 152/7
    18.3 and that is the game! KKR have stumbled to back to back losses. Another slower ball on middle, Yadav gets across and swats the ball in the air but straight to deep square leg. Morris takes a sitter and Daredevils have a big win 159/10
    18.2 nice delivery, a slow offcutter on off. Yadav goes for the big heave but toe-ends to long-off. Narine has to come back for the second and does. Iyer, though, picks up cleanly and hits the stumps at the bowler's end. Narine is a foot short. 159/9
