    19.4 and no, he won't get the hundred. Amla looks to drill that over long-off, but can't get enough bat on it as he holes out to Warner at long-off. It was a tired stroke, he knew he didn't strike that well the moment he hit it. The dug out stands up to applaud, the owner is happy too! Super knock 173/4
    4.2 the slower ball has done the trick. This is floated full across Vijay, who looks to flick, but the ball lobs off the leading edge to Warner who takes a dolly running in from mid-off. 33/1
    11.1 the breakthrough has been achieved. It was a nothing shot from Saha. Skips down the pitch to play the flat-batted pull, he was done in by the extra bounce perhaps and ends up skewing the ball towards Deepak Hooda who makes no mistake running in from deep midwicket. 87/2
    17.2 goes for a wild swing but was way too early as the slow leg cutter gripped the surface and deviated a touch to beat the swing and hit the stumps 152/3

    12.1 big wicket, and a big moment in this match. Third Sunrisers batsman who is out in this fashion. It was fired into middle, Warner goes far too deep inside his crease to whip it away but the backfoot slips as he disturbs the stumps and has to walk back. Lets out a huge cry of anguish. First Yuvraj, then Hooda. Now Warner. 97/2
    7.6 floats it full, the ball tails away a touch on middle, Warner pushes it down to long-on and chances Mohit's arm for a second run, but Dhawan, who was slow to turn around for the second, wasn't ready and has to make the long walk back as the rocket throw hits the stumps direct at the bowler's end. Mohit had to run fairly a long way from the boundary, and he managed a clean pick up and throw from long-on. Dhawan was miles outside the crease. Boy, doesn't Mohit love these direct hits? Not quite in the same league as the one that got AB de Villiers at the 2015 World Cup, but an outstanding effort nonetheless. Has given KXIP a breakthrough they were desperately searching for. Dhawan didn't even wait for the third umpire's decision. The moment that hit the stumps, he was off 68/1
    15.6 is there another twist? Hooda's party is over. This was a short ball outside off, Hooda looks to pull but he was always up against it as it was hit towards the longer boundary, Miller at deep midwicket did well to run in and then hold his composure before taking a regulation catch. 139/3
