    13.1 Kaushik picks up his third wicket. Vijay holes out to deep midwicket. Bravo breaks into a jig. Wrong'un outside off, Vijay aims for a slog sweep. He hits it well but straight to Bravo. Vijay throws his head back in disappointment 100/5
    6.4 Jadeja hits back and dismisses Stoinis. DK whips the bails off. Stoinis rushes down the track. Jadeja pushes it flatter and wider outside off. He swings and does not connect. DK does the rest 65/1
    7.5 Kaushik strikes in his first over. First IPL wicket. Slower through the air and turns into the left-hander. Marsh aims a flick. He ends up chipping it to short midwicket. Raina completes a head-high catch. Easy as they come 70/2
    7.6 double-strike from Kaushik. DK goes up immediately. The finger goes up. Maxwell can't believe it. He has a wry smile as he drags himself off the field. This skids on and turns away outside off, Maxwell, on the front foot, shapes for a cut. There was no nick there. Kaushik gets lucky this match. Ultra edge picks up nothing. Maxwell has to go for a first-ball duck 70/3
    8.5 Gurkeerat now falls for a duck. Three wickets in seven balls. Horrible running between the wickets. Gurkeerat chops it towards backward point and sets off. There is a mix-up in the middle and Gurkeerat has to turn and run back. There was never a run there Faulkner dives to his left and releases the ball quickly. DK catches him short 73/4
    17.2 Miller picks out long-on. Slower one. Back of a length and angled away outside off, Miller had to drag it from there. He skews it to Dwayne Smith, running to his right, off the toe end 139/6

    18.5 Bravo unfurls the airplane celebration after duping Saha. Full, slower ball, dips on Saha. He goes through with a slog sweep and does not make contact. The ball slides under the bat and hits the off stump 151/8
    18.2 Axar Patel also holes out. Bravo slips in another slower ball on the leg stump. The batsman makes room and slogs it in the air. Kishan hangs onto a head-high clasp at long-on 145/7
    19.3 The leg stump is floored. Kings XI continue to tumble. Mohit Sharma backs away and comes down the track. He swings early and is hoodwinked by Praveen's slower ball. His first wicket this season 153/9
    19.5 Praveen cleans up Cariappa. Kings XI have been dismissed for 154 from 65 for 0. Praveen nails a blockhole ball on off. Cariappa makes room, goes for a big swipe, and misses. Raina embraces Praveen 154/10

    6.3 Axar has his hands aloft in delight. This was full on middle, Smith can't get underneath it. He miscues a loft and finds Gurkeerat at long-off. He reverse-cups his hands around the ball. Lions have been reduced to 38 for 3 by the seventh over 38/3
    1.4 bowled'em! Mohit keeps it straight and simple and hits the top of middle. Back of a length and skids on middle. Baz shuffles outside leg and wants to thrash it through the covers. He misses 13/1

    4.6 Mohit nails the middle stump, again! Straight length ball from Mohit. Raina wants to go for an across-the-line hoick. He can't touch it. Mohit tilts the middle stump back and roars. Kings XI are in this 34/2
    6.5 Axar gets DK and roars. Arm ball, arrows in, DK plays for the turn and drags it back onto the leg stump off an inside edge. This double-blow has titled the scales in Kings XI's favour 39/4
    10.1 Axar Patel takes a hat-trick, the first of IPL 2016. Jadeja is bewildered, much like Maxwell. Was there a nick there? I'm not sure. Slides on outside off from round the stumps, Jadeja aims for a late cut and is given out caught behind by umpire Sharma. Ultra edge, however, picks up a spike. Was that bat brushing the pad maybe? 57/6
    6.6 Bravo out. He plays on as well. Axar celebrates the wicket with the 'Champion' jig. This one skids off the surface, Bravo is caught on the crease, as he prods and drags it back onto the leg stump via an inside edge 39/5
    14.5 Kishan takes on Maxwell's arm and is gone. Stoinis collects the ball and breaks the stumps at the bowler's end. Kishan danced out. The bowler was wary of it. He shortened his length outside off. Kishan flat-batted it to extra cover. Maxwell gathered and released the ball quickly 86/7
    19.2 full toss outside off, Faulkner goes low for a slog. The bat twists in his hands. The Australia allrounder mis-hits it straight down the throat of Miller at long-on 125/9
    18.6 Cariappa finds redemption. Mohit finishes with a wicket. Praveen dances outside leg. Mohit follows the batsman with a short slower ball. Praveen scoops it into the hands of short third man 125/8
