    14.1 he's hit this to deep square, where Shardul Thakur takes an excellent catch moving to his right. Lynn went across a touch and then swung acoss the line, didn't quite middle it as well as he would've liked. 122/4
    4.5 taken at long-on! Spin does the trick. Was a full delivery, nicely in the arc for Narine, lofts it down the ground but without the distance 38/1
    10.2 holed out to long-on and Tahir is on a celebratory run, like he does always. Right intent, wrong execution. This one dipped on him a touch and spun a touch extra to take the inside half of the bat. Easy catch. 79/2
    10.4 Faf, you absolute ripper! What a magical catch. Uthappa doesn't read the legbreak properly, looks to go straighter but this turns to take the leading edge. Went high, really high, and Faf had to run it a good 20-25 yards from the long-off fence. Having done all the hard work, he then realised this will dip on him and so he puts in a full-stretch dive and gets his fingers completely underneath the ball as it descends. Stunning, absolutely stunning. 80/3
    17.2 slices high in the air, but only as far as long-off. It's Faf the man again. Excellent change of pace from Shardul, went for a knuckleball that he's been working on for a while. DK doesn't quite get under the length, which means he gets more elevation than distance. 150/6
    14.5 Tahir has his revenge! Russell looks to go big again, the length is a touch shorter so he doesn't quite get the same elevation. Dhruv Shorey the substitute fielder runs in, this is flat mind you, and he has to be mindful of this whacking his face at that pace. But no worries, he still manages to dive fully forward to complete a super catch. The crowd goes quiet. 132/5
    19.5 pulled but straight down Jadeja's throat at deep midwicket. Gill looked to clear the biggest boundary at Eden. 161/7

    19.6 magnificent yorker! Curved in late to scythe through the gap between bat and pad. Dhoni lobs the ball back to Shardul, who effects a run-out at the bowler's end as Kuldeep was nearly at the other end looking for a bye. 161/8

    3.1 trapped lbw! More excellent bowling from Gurney, angled in from round the wicket, fullish length, beats the inside edge and catches Watson on the back leg in front of all three 29/1

    5.3 off stump out of the ground! Full at off stump, du Plessis eyes up a slog sweep, held back enough to defeat the stroke and it turned. Nicely bowled. Much needed for KKR 44/2

    9.1 strikes first ball! A wicket for the time out? Full outside off, Rayudu's eyes light up at the drive but he doesn't keep it down. Firmly struck but straight to cover 61/3
    11.1 beautiful bowling from Chawla! He's been so, so consistent for them over the years, delivers unfailingly. Gets this to drift in on a length from wide of the crease, spins away just a touch and Jadhav is struck on the pad as he plays all around it, struck plumb in front of middle and off. 81/4
    15.4 struck plumb in front! Dhoni reviews, but he seems to be stone dead. This is a full delivery, spins back in and Dhoni is hit on the pad as he plays down the wrong line. He's well outside the line on the forward push, the ball beats the inside edge to hit the pad. Portion of leg stump visible at the point of impact. Ball tracker says this would've smashed leg stump. Excellent decision from umpire Rod Tucker. We criticise umpires when they don't get it right, so you have to give them credit where due. 121/5
