View dismissal G Gambhir* c Guptill b Bates 5 9 9 1 0 55.55
1.5 Incredible catch from Martin Guptill! This is a real stunner. The ball moves off the seam again and Gambhir gets a leading edge, trying to work it to the on side. The ball pops up and Guptill dives to his left and snatches it above the turf 10/1
View dismissal BB McCullum c †Hopkins b Azhar Mahmood 40 56 35 3 2 114.28
14.3 huge wicket here, and Mahmood is having a terrific Champions League. Fuller delivery wide of off stump, McCullum drives at it with an angled bat and gets an outside edge to the keeper. He could have done some damage towards the end had he stuck around. 98/5
View dismissal JH Kallis c Vincent b Azhar Mahmood 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
9.2 great start from Mahmood. Goes wide of the crease and bowls a back-of-a-length delivery that is angled right into Kallis. The batsman offers a defensive prod and the ball takes the outside edge and is snapped up close to the turf by Lou Vincent at first slip. Good catch there. 72/3
View dismissal MK Tiwary c & b Azhar Mahmood 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
9.3 And it gets better for Mahmood! A hint of outswing there and Tiwary tries to work that to the leg side and offers a leading edge. Simple catch for Mahmood. Auckland have now taken three wickets for no runs and have charged into this game after that partnership between Bisla and McCullum 72/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c de Grandhomme b Mills 15 27 22 0 0 68.18
16.2 full and wide, Shakib backs away too far and manages to only get a toe-end on it. The ball scoops high and deep cover fielder jogs into complete a simple catch. KKR running out of hitters near the death here. 108/6

View dismissal MJ Guptill c Narine b Balaji 25 37 26 3 0 96.15
9.5 another batsman throws his wicket away, Balaji dropped it short of a length outside off and it was too inviting for Guptill to go for the pull, didn't time it well enough and ended up placing it straight to Narine at long-on 76/2
View dismissal L Vincent c Tiwary b Narine 30 11 12 3 2 250.00
2.6 that was a bit unnecessary! Vincent had only just slogged a boundary and he tried to repeat that the following ball, gets a thick top edge and it swirls and Tiwary takes the skier at square leg 37/1
Azhar Mahmood not out 51 59 42 3 2 121.42
View dismissal AK Kitchen lbw b Narine 24 20 15 3 1 160.00
14.4 beaten completely in the flight. Not a lot of turn here for Narine, but he has varied his pace beautifully to get that wicket. Slow through the air again and very full. Hits Kitchen right in front and that is not a difficult decision for the umpire. 117/3
