    16.1 another wicket. Daredevils falling away quickly. Flatter delivery outside off, de Kock backs away and flat-bats a stroke to Jordan at long-off. The umpires want to check if Chahal has overstepped, very marginal call. I'd be giving that a no-ball, seems Chahal has nothing behind the line. Given out 107/7
    1.2 no doubt about this one. Caught behind and RCb have one. Back of a length delivery outside off, nice carry. Pant doesn't move his feet and tries to punch on the up, but the ball holds its line and flicks the outside edge of Pant's bat. A thick edge. 11/1
    5.3 superb catch from Kohli. Brilliant, just brilliant. Tossed up on off, Nair plays a delightful drive. The loft, with a straight bat, looks like it has carried easily over mid-off, but Kohli scampers from mid-off and gets there after a sprint. A catch not many could have got to. He keeps his eyes on the ball all along and takes it in front of him 42/2
    9.3 flatter and wide outside off. Big appeal and given. Samson tries to dab a steer to third man. And the ball is taken by Rahul who throws the ball up immediately in celebration. Inconclusive replays. Samson certainly didn't believe there was bat or glove. Umpire Oxenford had no hesitation 71/3
    11.2 what a catch. Kohli may not have the catch of the day after all. Short and wide, a poor ball, must be said. Billings doesn't keep his cut down, and it carries to Gayle who leaps and takes a diving catch to his right. Not sure how but it is taken. 81/4
    14.3 gone this time. Negi's faltering innings ends. Flat on middle, Negi runs to the pitch but drills the drive in the air and straight to AB at long-off. He won't drop em. Negi may have costed his side plenty of momentum 96/5
    14.6 gone. Gayle gets another. Daredevils struggling here.Another fired delivery outside off, Brathwaite squeezes it out and the ball carries straight to Watson at backward point. The umpires want to check if it has carried and it has. Comfortably done. 98/6

    19.6 another low full toss, badly miscued to cover. Jayant runs back for a non-existent second and is comfortably run out. 138/8

    1.1 chopped on. Big wicket for Daredevils. Good length delivery outside off, shaping away. Gayle stays back but doesn't move his feet. Pokes at it away from his body and gets a thick inside edge into his stumps. Morris is pumped. 5/1

    2.4 got im. Game on. De Villiers goes. Good length on off, the ball bounces extra, too much for Ab who was into his drive and didn't bail out. Some inward movement too. The bottom hand came off the bat, and the ball just lobs to extra cover where Jayant dives low in front of him to keep Daredevils alive 17/2
    10.1 chops on. Kohli is distraught. Fullish outside off, Rahul defends but played with such soft hands that the ball bounced back off the pitch and spun to clatter into the off stump as the off bail came off. Kohli furious, rattling is bat onto his pads. Brathwaite sliding tackles in ceplebration 83/3
    14.6 gone. Negi has a wicket. Some flight on leg and middle, Watson gets down on one knee and slog-sweeps it in the air. Doesn't time it at all and straight to the deep midwicket fielder. A rather unnecessary shot. An aggressive shot can be on the ground too, but not Watson's style 111/4
