    16.5 slower one beats Yusuf and then Mohit's throw beats Uthappa! Mohit's slower ball deceived Yusuf completely as he looked to work it to leg but took it on his body. He took another step for a run but Uthappa had come a long way down the pitch by then, and so had Mohit. The bowler then turned around with the ball and hit the stumps at the non-striker's end 137/2
    13.3 driven straight to cover and oh, is Gambhir run out at the non-striker's end? He is surely miles outside the crease after he turned back but the confusion is whether Sandeep's hands broke the stumps or the ball? Replays from multiple angle confirm that the ball went through Sandeep's hands and then to the stumps to dislodge the bails, Gambhir is gone! It was driven to cover and Maxwell got a direct hit from a tough angle, what was Gambhir doing so far down the pitch! 101/1

    19.6 a run-out to end the innings! That went down the leg side, maybe for a wide, after Russell made room and tried to flick but missed and then took off for a single. But Saha threw the ball to Sandeep who saw how far Russell was and then ran all the way to run Russell out. That looked like a wide, but not sure why the umpire didn't give it 164/3

    3.1 two in two for KKR, Vijay goes too! It was a short ball from Morkel outside off, moving away a bit, Vijay didn't move his feet at all while chasing it and handed a straightforward catch to mid-off with a half-hearted slap 13/3
    0.4 wicket in the first over, Stoinis gives an easy catch to mid-off! It was a back of length ball outside off and it looked like Stoinis wanted to slap it down the ground. But he didn't middle it and Chawla took the easy catch 1/1
    2.6 that's the second wicket for Russell in his second over! Vohra falling over a bit towards the off side while executing that pull, he didn't get under or over it properly and pulled the ball high for Shakib at deep backward square 13/2

    8.6 inside edge onto middle and off stumps, Chawla raises his arms and the crowd erupts! It was well outside off and for some reason, not the first time in the innings, Saha looked to sweep it against the turn but only got an inside edge that headed straight to the stumps 53/4
    15.4 big, big appeal for lbw after Maxwell misses another reverse sweep, umpire Anil Chaudhary takes his time and slooowwwly raises his finger! What a wicket for KKR! It turned in instead of going away, which is what beat Maxwell and it's not confirmed if he was hit in line with the off stump, maybe just in line, maybe just outside 120/5
    17.3 that's it for Miller, he's handed a catch to long-on off a full toss. Umpire Chaudhary has asked Miller to wait, though, to check for no ball. Replays show Russell's foot is well inside and the full toss is not above Miller's waist, it was maybe dipping too. Didn't look like the full toss cramped him for room but he handed a pretty easy catch to long-on several yards inside the boundary. The umpire raises his finger after the replays 130/6
    19.3 that's another run out, Gurkeerat is gone too. That's suicidal. He drove it down to long-off and it was only a single but the batsmen turned around and Sathish's throw to the keeper's end meant there wasn't much to do for Uthappa 155/8
    19.2 another run out in the match, Axar is gone! It was almost in the block hole and Gurkeerat could only send it back to Russell who went low to his right to catch the ball and then turned around for an overarm throw to catch Axar well short. Russell celebrates by thumping his chest, the crowd comes alive! 154/7
    19.5 Russell gets one more, this is plumb! The umpire's finger goes up in slow motion, Russell roars, the crowd is going bonkers! He fired in a yorker at the base of middle and leg, Swapnil opened up his stance and was hit right in front 156/9
