    10.6 the party is over. Looks like Gayle was bored of going leg side. This time looks to flat bat that over long-off, but didn't quite get the elevation as Miller takes a comfortable catch. Walks back to a huge round of applause 147/1
    13.6 this was perhaps his first mis-hit and he's gone. This one was full but a touch slower on off stump, Kohli looked to go over long-off, but the bat face turned in his hand as he made contact as it lobbed towards Miller at long-off. Vijay, Miller and all the Kings XI players applaud him off the field. It was meant to rain buckets, it did. But wow, nothing like raining fours and sixes from Kohli's blade. Magical knock 199/3
    11.4 they've got ABD for a duck. Would you believe it? Rare failure, but KXIP will take it. Lucky, but it doesn't matter. Smart bit of bowling. Sees de Villiers make room, so he slows the pace down and bowls it full and wide, de Villiers tries to reach out for it but can only end up dragging it back onto the stumps 154/2

    1.4 there's the breakthrough. Vijay was trying to give himself room and slap that over the off side, but didn't have any room whatsoever, and ended up getting a thick inside edge onto the pad before the ball rolled onto the stumps. 17/1
    4.4 looks to hit it straight, but ends up slicing it towards Jordan, who comes running in from mid-off before diving full-length forward to complete a low catch 53/3
    3.4 that one stayed low, and the leggie has his revenge. Or has he? Saha shaped to pull, perhaps gave away his intentions too early to allow Chahal to slide that one in, and once he missed, there was little hope. Umpires went upstairs to check the no-ball. Boy, it was cutting it too fine. Benefit of doubt to the bowler this time. Didn't look there was anything behind on the first point of landing. Even if there was, just a millimeter 43/2
    5.1 the look of disbelief on Miller's face tells you a story. This wasn't all that short, but Miller went through with the flt-batted pull in front of square. He picked the bones out of that one, but it was almost as if he forgot there was de Villiers lurking round the corner at long-on. That must have stung 54/4
    10.5 swings north, ball goes south. There's turn away from off stump, bounce and Gurkeerat can only get a thick edge as he looks to go over long-off as Gayle takes a comfortable catch at slip. 96/8
    7.3 Kohli takes a simple catch running in from long-off, but in doing so, he may have hurt his split webbing even more as the ball lands on his stitches. Coming back to the ball, it was floated full outside off, Axar threw his bat at that but couldn't only get the toe-end. Kohli is in visible pain 77/5
    8.2 tossed up outside off, Behardien slogs across the line when he could have hit it with the spin, only managed to hit it as far as AB de Villiers, who ran in a few paces from long-on to take a comfortable catch 79/6
    8.5 has he taken it? Superman de Villiers. This was hit well towards the long-on boundary, where de Villiers, mindful of the ropes behind him, judged a catch to perfection. Part-1 done. Then he realised he was going over, and nonchalantly lobbed the ball up, went outside the ropes, came back into the field of play to take it on the second attempt. Couple of years ago, you'd say it would have been an outstanding catch. It still is, but compared to some of his other efforts, this was a lot simpler. 80/7
    12.2 punched to Watson who fires a throw to Baby from cover, he collected the throw well to beat a desperate Mohit Sharma who was trying to lunge back into the crease. He was miles outside the crease. 105/9
