    0.6 Gone! Lynn early into the pull shot again, it was a straight delivery on a length, did not rise at all and struck Lynn in front. Not a pitch to play across the line and Lynn pays the price 6/1
    1.5 another one bites the dust! Both openers gone! Harbhajan tosses it up, teasing Narine on a pitch offering him considerable help, Narine tries to slog him into oblivion, only managing a top edge, high in the air towards point, who had to run back and dive to his left to complete an excellent catch 8/2
    4.4 that's the third wicket to the cross batted pull! Chahar on the charge in the Power-play again. The shot hasn't been on tonight, this was a slower short ball, bounced a little extra, caught him on the splice and went high up in the air towards deep squareleg, who eventually had to put in a dive forward to take it 24/4
    2.3 another unwarranted stroke and that's the third KKR wicket! Length on middle, he goes for the pull shot, it keeps a tad low again, skids onto Rana as well, who only manages to toe-end it to midwicket, where Rayudu takes a neat catch diving forward 9/3
    8.4 That's the big fish, the captain, who was looking good so far! It was full on middle, Karthik whipped it nicely, taking it from the stumps, hit it flat and hard but aerially and straight to midwicket, where Harbhajan clung onto a sharp chance. He probably wanted to clear the man and would have had four, instead it's half the side back in the hut 44/5
    10.1 got him! Tahir sneaks through Gill with a googly. He falls over trying to flick without a big stride. It slips through between inside edge and leg, Dhoni picks it up and takes the bails off. It doesn't even need to be sent upstairs. It's going downhill FAST for KKR 47/6

    15.3 goes slow again and gets him out by a long, long way. That's more like the Harbhajan this season. Gets it to dip and spin a long way away from just short of a length. Chawla is down the pitch and swatting all around this. Runs straight off, doesn't even bother trying to get back 76/7
    15.4 and another. Oh this is poor. Length outside off, dipping, drawing him forward. Kuldeep into a lazy front foot poke. Thick edge past slip. Russell takes for the run. Kuldeep is still trying to get up as backward point picks up and puts in quite a bad throw at the other end. Harbhajan has to lunge and hold on, then recover to flick this onto the stumps. And he does what's required 76/8
    16.3 straight to midwicket. Tame. Full and dipping on leg stump. Prasidh looks to flick with hard hands. Can't do that on a slow pitch. Harbhajan has no problem holding onto this one 79/9

    2.2 short on middle and he hammers a pull flat and hard, picking out squareleg in the circle. Watson is livid but he has to go 18/1

    4.6 Raina's been living dangerously and he skies this one high in the air and is taken brilliantly by Piyush Chawla, who runbs back from mid-on and puts in a timely dive to catch it inches from the ground! It was tossed up on middle, stuck in the surface a little as Raina went for an ugly slog, only managing a top edge 35/2
    14.4 won't survive this time! Length at off stump, looks to sweep, gets a top edge and Rana settles under it from short extra. A few steps to his left and holds on. And a big noise from the crowd - as if it's KKR's home ground. 81/3
