    6.2 Soft, soft dismissal. Good length and moves away a touch off the surface outside off. Some extra bounce as well. There was no slip and the batsman opened the face of the bat, attempting a dab down to third man. He can only run it into the gloves of DK. Second soft dismissal in three overs 44/3
    3.1 Gambhir isn't lucky on the third time. Phenomenal work from Jakati. Raina jumps onto the fielder. Back of a length on middle, bunted to short midwicket, where Jakati flings full-length to his left and stops the ball with his left hand, collecting and nailing a direct hit at the striker's end in one motion to dismiss Gambhir. Uthappa had slipped near the middle of the pitch, which resulted in a confusion. Jakati showed off his reflexes and Raina was quick to embrace the fielder 23/1
    4.2 Fullish and outside off, Pandey opens the face of the bat and offers a dolly to Raina at lone slip. He takes it around waist height and throws the ball in the air 34/2

    9.2 Smith nails the top of middle and is mobbed by his team-mates. The bails fly and the middle stump is pushed back. Smith hits the deck and bowls a back of a length ball that skids on on middle. Chawla, having, backed away does not touch it. He can't squirt it down to third man. Timbaaah! 11 off 16 balls isn't good enough 55/4
    18.2 Yusuf holes out to a full toss. Yet another soft dismissal. Full toss outside off, Pathan bends his back knee and drives in the air... into the lap of Raina at extra cover. He did not have to budge 120/7
    11.3 Smith is on a roll in Kanpur. He removes Shakib too. Bangs a short ball on middle and finds tennis ball-esque extra bounce. Shakib was air borne as he played the upper cut. He picks out the debutant, Dwivedi, at third man 61/5
    16.5 six and out! Fuller and straighter, Surya goes low for a sweep. He can only top-edge it to Dhawal at the edge of the fine leg boundary. Surya throws his head back in despair 102/6
    19.3 Bravo does the champion jig and sends Holder off. The exiting batsman shoves the bowler away in a friendly manner. Holder has a wry smile on his face. Bravo then embraces his Gujarat Lions and Melbourne Renegades team-mate Finch. Offcutter on a length, Holder backs away, swings and miscues it over the bowler's head. Finch runs to his right from mid-off and hangs onto the catch, clutching the ball against his chest 122/8

    0.1 Uthappa juggles and gets it on the third attempt! Smith bags a golden duck, after claiming his best T20 figures. He shapes to pull a not-so-short ball that was angled in. He gets an under edge and the keeper hangs onto the catch 0/1
    1.2 Narine strikes with his third ball! Ump Chaudhary raises his finger. Looked like a seam-up ball. It swung in and rapped Baz on the back leg in front of middle. There was no inside edge involved and Baz is on his way back. Plumb! 18/2

    3.5 Morne hits back and leaves DK's stumps splayed. It pitched outside off, curved in a long way, then shot through the gate to knock out the middle stump. DK drove and missed the full ball 38/3
    9.5 Collision! Gone! Eish! Raina had nudged it off his pads and up to the second run, it was all perfect. Jolly old jog, in fact. But as they turned for the third run, both batsmen, in an attempt to avoid each other, ironically, smash into each other. Raina coming to the bowler's end was moving to his right, Finch running to the batsman's end was moving to his left and they suddenly had each other in their sights. The throw comes in and Uthappa whips the bails off 97/4
