    14.5 he'd shuffled onto off stump and decided to tuck a fuller delivery across the line towards midwicket. He's not had to resort to those low-percentage shots much today but this one has his number. Struck in front of all three stumps, I reckon 151/4
    8.3 three sixes in a row? no, this time he holes out to deep midwicket, it was a pretty short ball, sat up for Vohra, seemed headed for the stands when he hit that ball but it doesn't carry all the way, the Mohali crowd has lost a bit of its voice 102/1
    11.5 he's skied this! It's high, it's swirling and it comes down for Scott Styris to just about snap it up. Just back of a length forced the batsman into a pull, but he had to drag it and it was a slower ball too. A top-edge means all of Thisara's power ends up propelling the ball straight up. Had enough time to steady himself under it and take it safely 132/2
    13.4 this time he gets under it, perhaps a little too much. The orthodox sweep and it sails right into the hands of deep square leg 144/3

    18.1 bludgeons down to long-off. It was in the slot for that big, booming straight blade from Bailey to come down. Anton Devcich is the man down there, he leaps up and flings his hands up over his head. Catches it in the fingertips but he was on the edge of the boundary ropes and the momentum was pushing him further, can you guess what happened next? The ol toss the ball back up, pop over outside the field of play, pop back in and take the rebound. Standard T20 fielding 188/5

    5.4 a dinky little scoop over his head ends up becoming his undoing! Got down quite soon and realises he has got under this length ball a little too much. Tries to adjust by swinging his bat harder and only ends up gloving it to the keeper. 58/2
    1.3 there's a noise! Kings XI go up in unison, so does the umpire's finger! Big strike that as Harris poked at a shortish delivery just outside off. He was looking for that dab to third man but ends up feathering through to the keeper 10/1
    6.4 Knights are crumbling in the face of scoreboard pressure again. There wasn't as dire a need to innovate as all that but Devcich goes for a reverse sweep, ends up gloving and simple catch to short fine leg 64/3
    8.6 he was looking to work a fuller ball across the line. Planted his front foot on off stump to enable that but this dips on him, turns and hits him plumb in front 76/4
    10.4 the run-rate was asking for the big hit. Watling tries to oblige as he gets under a length ball but can't summon enough power to lob long-off 83/6
    10.1 has he conjured a dismissal? Maxwell, you can't keep him out if the game. Hits the base of middle and Styris and his desperate dive aren't good enough. This was a tap into the covers by Watling and the non-striker set off on instinct. He realises too late who was patrolling that region. Maxwell gets it with one hand, turns around and nails the throw all in one motion 81/5
    13.4 slows it up on middle and off, Mitchell lunges into a sweep but the pace off the ball foils his attempt. He tries to sneak a quick leg bye but Wriddhiman Saha bolts from his place behind the stumps, gets the ball and sends in a direct through at the non-strikers' to send him back 92/7
    13.5 that's a legspinner's delight. A slow, tossed up delivery that veers past the batsman's attempted loft down the ground and has him stumped. Kuggeleijn fell into the trap and could do nothing about it 92/8
    14.2 flick on the spin switch and watch them tumble. Devcich has his hat pulled low over his eyes. Can't blame him for not wanting to watch as he looks to hit against the turn of a tossed up delivery on middle and offers a leading edge to short third man 94/9

    15.2 that's a 120-run mauling! Another example of Karanveer loading the ball with as much air as he could and the batsman, as a result, hitting across the line. Outside edge goes to short third man to seal Kings XI's progress into the semi-final 95/10
