    7.3 this one stops on him as Amla looks to whip it over the infield, he can only hit it straight to midwicket. Amla is distraught, Ashwin is delighted. There's the breakthrough Pune needed. Soft dismissal. He went back deep into the crease to play the short ball, may have been better off perhaps trying to pull. End of Amla's maiden IPL stint 60/1

    15.4 swing and a miss. Vijay looked to slog sweep over cow corner, but the head fell apart as he missed the line of that straight one completely as the middle stump was knocked back. Good knock by the skipper. 123/3
    8.3 another one bites the dust. This one spins away sharply from outside off, Saha is caught in two minds, isn't sure whether to cut or steer it away. In the end, looks to angle his bat to get it past short third man, but ends up hitting it a touch fine as Ashwin takes a smart catch at slip. 65/2
    17.3 the party is over this time. This one was short and spinning into middle, Gurkeerat shaped to pull over midwicket, but ended up dragging it just a touch as the deep square leg fielder made it look easy. It was in the air for a while, but Chahar, running in from the boundary, judged it well. 150/4
    17.5 the slider has done the trick as Ashwin has his 100th IPL wicket. This one was bowled at 106 kph from around the stumps, the ball pitches outside off and drift back in to beat Miller's across-the-line punch. Umpire took no less than two seconds to send Miller back. He was plumb. These are Ashwin's best figures this season. Miller's miserable season is over. 154/5
    18.6 slower and fuller outside off, he looks to clear long-off, but ends up hitting it flat and straight to the boundary rider. The slowness of the delivery did the trick. Rahane doesn't miss dollies like those in the deep. 160/6
    19.1 has he hit it over the ropes? No, nearly. But that's enough for RPS to sneak a wicket. This was a full toss and right into Axar's swinging arc, he makes good connection and nearly sees the ball soar over until Chahar, lurking round the corner at deep midwicket, gets around to take the ball, and then just lobs it casually to Tiwary, who was moving to his left from long-on, just as he realises that he was going over. Superb presence of mind 160/7

    4.4 they've strangled him down leg, lucky break but KXIP will take it any which way. Rahane walks across to flick the incoming delivery, but doesn't get as much bat as he would have liked, Saha dives to his left to collect a regulation catch. 35/1
    11.5 he's picked the lone man in the deep. Poor shot selection. He was hitting across the line and towards the bigger boundary, but the slog sweep has found Miller who takes the simplest of catches at deep midwicket. Second wicket in the over. MS Dhoni is disappointed with that shot, and the look on his face tells you a story. He wasn't even looking at Khawaja as he walked past him. Shakes his head in frustration. Is that a big moment in the match? 80/4
    6.6 loop, drift, turn, bounce and a smart stumping. Bailey is totally deceived in flight as he looks to drive, and ends up dragging the backfoot outside the crease briefly. Enough time for Saha to collect the ball cleanly and effect a regulation stumping. 47/2
    11.2 loops it up nicely outside off, Tiwary is deceived in flight as he steps out to go over long-off, ends up skewing it towards deep cover, where Farhaan Behardien runs in to take a good low catch. Pressure on RPS 78/3

    13.2 what has happened there? Looks like the ball got stuck in to the pitch. It was the slowest variation of a slower delivery from Rishi Dhawan. Banged in short, the ball took ages to get to Irfan who was already through with the pull as the ball lobbed off the bottom edge Saha, who did well to run in a few paces to take a low catch. 86/5
    18.1 big, big wicket. Mohit floats this full outside off from around the stumps, Thisara looks to swing across the line over long-on, but only manages to get a thick outside edge which Saha accepts with glee. 144/6
