    3.1 and he strikes immediately! This one was short and sliding back into middle, Smith punches it down the ground, almost as if he forgot there was a man at long-on. Chris Morris didn't have to move much there as he pouches it easily. Double blow for the Lions. Looked like he wanted to play it a lot straighter, ended up dragging it as well. 17/2
    2.5 and the wily old fox has done it, this time with a cutter. McCullum doesn't turn up at the party. Looks to pull, but it wasn't short enough, and the only connection he made was with the dry, hot Rajkot air as the ball hits the top of off stump. The customary roar of 'come onnnnn' from Zak as he sends back the danger man. Dream start for the Daredevils 17/1
    3.6 two in the over for Nadeem, and there's a hush around the SCA Stadium. This one was nicely tossed up by Nadeem, Finch was looking to slog sweep across the line, and only managed to top edge it to Rishabh Pant at short fine leg. Disastrous start for the Lions. It's Daredevils who are roaring at the moment 24/3
    10.6 beautifully done, what a comeback by Mishra. Even Dravid, who generally remains very serious in the dugout, applauds. Raina steps out, Mishra sees that and slides it across him, only to miss the ball completely as de Kock effects a regular stumping. Touch-and-go with the no-ball there for Mishra, he was saved by a millimeter or two there. Wicket against the run of play for Gujarat Lions. Third umpire took a long hard look to see if de Kock's gloves were in front of the stumps when he collected the ball. Clearly, that wasn't the case here. Raina takes ages to start moving, but he has to go. Raina falls for his fifth 20s score this season 75/4
    17.3 excellent follow-up. Full, straight and a touch ahead of the length area on off stump, Karthik made room to hit through the line but missed it; the ball just about clipped the bails. Top knock from DK. 127/5

    18.6 the scoop doesn't work. Walked a little too far as Morris angles the full delivery on middle and leg, Faulkner missed and the leg pole was flattened. 138/6
    19.6 helped over the infield to deep square, there was no chance of a second, Kishan was halfway down, when de Kock collected the flat throw to break the bails. 149/7

    14.5 two in two. De Kock looked to slog that tossed up delivery towards the biggest boundary, but didn't get any power behind the stroke. It appeared to be a tired shot, Smith didn't have to move an inch at deep midwicket. A half-century was there for the taking, but he's done his job 121/2
    13.3 the party is over, but surely it has come a little too late for the Lions. It was gently tossed up Jadeja on middle, Pant looked to slog that over deep midwicket, but only managed an inside edge onto the pad as Karthik gobbled up the lob. Top knock, got his opportunity at the top of the order, and made the most of it 115/1
