    9.5 "come on!" Kuldeep yells, much like Warner has done in his own career. The Sunrisers captain is walking off furious with himself. Succumbed to a flat-bat shot soon after his partner did the same mistake. This was the one that comes into the left-hander. Warner went for the sweep, but the ball was a little too far away from him to make a solid enough connection 71/3

    1.6 was that really necessary after back-to-back boundaries? Dhawan was skipping away to the leg side, to try and open up that short boundary at point and third man. In the end, all he does is give the fast bowler a free line of sight of the stumps and Morkel does the sensible thing and aims for middle. Dhawan's cut misses. And he has to walk back 12/1
    9.4 beautiful comeback! It was a flatter delivery, the batsman picked that up early and set up for the heave over midwicket. Only, he connects with the back of the bat and goes straight up! The bowler takes the catch himself. Beautiful wrist-spin bowling from Kuldeep 71/2

    18.3 another example of clever, switched-on bowling from Knight Riders. Yuvraj premeditated a move to the off side to try and scoop the ball over short fine leg. But Holder trumped him by going full and straight. Bit too full to get under, and Yuvraj almost seemed to positioned himself too far from the ball to connect anyway 145/6
    15.5 another run-out for Hooda! He keeps throwing it away. Kuldeep again! Yuvi pushes to mid-off, took a few steps forward. Hooda, the junior partner at the other end simply took off, only to realise it was a half-hearted attempt at a single. Yuvraj stopped. Hooda couldn't. Kuldeep gets to the ball, knew he had the time to take aim, and fires a dead-eye throw. 120/4
    16.1 that was text book. Cutting is the designated hitter and he decides he has to go straight away. Kuldeep must have sensed it. Threw the googly up wide of the batsman's reach, beat his frantic slash and is stumped 124/5
    18.5 big appeal, did it carry? Umpire Shamsuddin says yes. It's a full delivery a shade outside off, Ojha swings across the line, gets a feather that carries to the wicketkeeper. Great work from Uthappa again, coming forward and diving in front to take the catch 147/7
    19.5 a little juggle from Pandey, but he holds on. It's a back of a length delivery that the batsman goes after and toe-ends it to mid-off. Couldn't get on top of the ball. Pays for it, does Bhuvi 161/8

    1.5 width, again! Uthappa picks out short extra cover, and Warner pumps his fist. Back of a length and angling away outside off, he hits on the up. Slaps and finds Henriques 15/1
    9.1 miscue... miscue... terrible miscue and much like the Sunrisers' innings, KKR have lost their captain after a time out. It's a short ball, which rises a bit too high for Gambhir's comfort. He is surprised by the bounce, cramped by the lack of room but had already committed to the pull. Gets it high on the bat so it goes down to long-on instead of midwicket 63/3
    6.6 direct hit at point! Yuvraj Singh has produced a bit of magic! One stump to aim at, and he hits the target before Munro could make his ground. Gambhir had dinked the ball to point, Yuvi hurtled up to it, got control of the ball in both hands, and whirled the throw in flat. 53/2
    17.2 that's KKR's last hope. It's a low full toss, following the batsman who had made room outside leg, Pandey lifts it up hoping to clear the long-on boundary. But Hooda is down there, waiting for the catch 125/6
    10.5 ahh, that's unfortunate. Yusuf has timed this flick so well, but because of that, it carries all the way to deep midwicket. Magnificent take from Bhuvi, running in from the boundary and diving forward to snaffle it up. 69/4
    15.5 taken by deep square leg! Surya goes for the pull, this one's the short ball at top pace and the batsman hasn't middled the ball. Dhawan runs in from the boundary, moves to his left, dives to get underneath and takes it very well indeed. Bit of a swirler, so excellently done. 115/5
    19.2 that's how! 140 kph yorker on middle stump, Sathish misses, Bhuvi hits. Leg stump goes for a walk and Warner yells in delight 139/7
    19.5 another slower ball, Holder wasn't quite well balanced when he went for the loft towards long-off. The ball hit high on the bat and carried only as far as long-off 140/8
