Laughlin to Russell, FOUR runs, backs away and drills this fuller delivery to the extra cover boundary. Laughlin didn't miss his length by much, went for a yorker and got punished. Long-off was no more than three metres away from the ball, had no chance

Laughlin to Russell, FOUR runs, swung away to the wide long-on boundary. This was a mishit but didn't matter. Backed away, and swung this from outside off
18.5
6
Archer to Russell, SIX runs, slower short of length ball that got stuck into the pitch, Russell backed away, held his shape very nicely and then flat-batted this over long-off. Deep into the stands. Lined himself up superbly. Forehand for six
17.6
6
Laughlin to Russell, SIX runs, backs away but he's denied the free swing because Laughlin angles into his body. No problem. He still swings through, gets a top-edge that flies over the fine leg boundary.
17.2
6
Laughlin to Russell, SIX runs, sitting up nicely for the pull, Russell has muscled this over deep midwicket. Too short, not the best delivery to bowl at this stage. Russell didn't get it anywhere near the middle but still managed to clear it
16.4

Unadkat to Russell, FOUR runs, Jaydev hasn't learnt. Keeps giving width and keeps getting whacked! Russell clears his front leg and slaps this to the extra cover boundary. Very poor
16.3
6
Unadkat to Russell, SIX runs, just over Samson's outstretched hands at wide long-on! This is a slower length ball that spins away from outside off, Russell backs away and fetches this slap from outside off, ends up dragging it but still manages enough
16.1
6
Unadkat to Karthik, SIX runs, scooped him up and over the keeper's head, straight scoop for six. Half-century for DK. He was looking away while trying to use the pace, got a big, fat top-edge that just flew. This is injustice
14.5
6
Archer to Russell, SIX runs, maximum use of the free hit! Full on leg stump, and Russell gets his front leg out of the way before depositing it over the long-on boundary. Raw power

Archer to Shubman Gill, FOUR runs, thumped! Through point this time! Loose ball first up. Wide outside off, and Gill sent this powerfully for four
13.6
6
Gopal to Karthik, SIX runs, there's the fifty partnership! Yuuuge over. Half-tracker outside off and Karthik rocks back to earn some extra time. Swivels, and then pulls it over cow corner. Expensive!
13.4
6
Gopal to Shubman Gill, SIX runs, going, going, gone! Teases Archer at long off, but goes just beyond him. Full on off, and Gill was quick to shimmy down the ground. Full swing of the bat thereafter
13.3
4
Gopal to Shubman Gill, FOUR runs, good length outside off, and that's been cut furiously past point! Proper cricket shot, and that breaches the infield. KKR getting a move on, now
10.4
4
Laughlin to Shubman Gill, FOUR runs, uses the pace to play it fine, and KKR are third time lucky! Sodhi was fine enough, but this time the ball flew off the bat, and third man can't cut it off
9.1
4
Gopal to Karthik, FOUR runs, gentle little tickle down leg. Too short and drifting down, DK went back and used the pace to deflect it expertly.
5.4
4
Unadkat to Lynn, FOUR runs, slower length ball outside off, Lynn is down on one knee as he slaps this up and over cover. Disdainfully done
5.2
4
Unadkat to Karthik, FOUR runs, another teasing half-volley outside off, belted through the line between cover and mid-off. Very poor from the most expensive Royals' buy.
5.1
4
Unadkat to Karthik, FOUR runs, fuller outside off, DK leans into this wide half-volley and lofts this inside-out over cover point. Lovely
3.6
4
Archer to Karthik, FOUR runs, and almost goes there first up! It was full on middle, and DK comfortably whips it off his legs past the square-leg region. Well timed, and there's no one there in the deep. Four welcome runs for KKR
2.5
4
Gowtham to Lynn, FOUR runs, just a bit more air offered, and Lynn smacks this through the cover region. Winds up early, waits for the ball to land, and then slaps it through the off side
0.1
4
Gowtham to Narine, FOUR runs, slapped for four! Starts around the wicket, and pitches outside off. Narine backs away, makes some extra room, and crunches this past the diving cover fielder. Tripathi the man who couldn't stop it
