    1.4 has that lured him out? Delhi are keen... Tossed up and spinning away, Rahul overbalances a touch and Pant whips off the bails. Foot's on the line, and Rahul's a goner! Took a couple of blows but Lamichhane lands one in return, first wicket down in the second over 13/1
    12.2 relay catch on the boundary and that's a huge moment They're checking upstairs, but Gayle is walking. Bowled from much behind the stumps, wrong 'un that bounced a little bit more, Gayle rocks back and pulls powerfully. Ingram at deep midwicket catches it over his head, and he's overbalancing... overbalancing, but spots Axar a good ten yards away. Just in the nick of time, lobs the ball to Axar, who has a wide smile on his face while catching it. Amazing work by Ingram there. 106/4
    4.5 dug in short, Agarwal hacks across the line, Rutherford holds on to the top edge! That was an unequal five-ball contest, Rabada the winner by knockout as Agarwal's wild swing failed to get beyond the ring - though it took some catching, as the ball practically came down with ice on it 42/2
    7.1 strikes first ball! Miller slam dunks himself, picking out deep midwicket! He came down the pitch but got under the ball, going towards the longest part of the ground, more height than trousers and it's well taken by Shaw 61/3
    16.3 got him Mandeep gave him the charge, but Axar out-smarted him, and fired it in well wide of off stump - though within the tramlines. Pant collects and whips off the bails. 129/6
    12.6 another wrong 'un does it Curran had no clue, and he was looking to jab it away, but it bounced a bit more and came on slower and he ends up popping it back for the easiest of return catches. 106/5
    19.1 short ball does it. Ashwin was backing away to give himself room and swat through the legside, but Rabada had seen that in his last over and bowled a pacy short one closer to the batsman, denying him room. He goes through with the pull anyway but gets it near the end of the bat, and the ball loops to long-on, where Shreyas Iyer takes a good low catch tumbling forward 151/7

    3.1 chipped into the covers, Dhawan comes and then changes his mind... and Mandeep hits the stumps at the non-striker's end with Shaw stranded! Give his partner a reproachful look, it was Dhawan's call but he decided it wasn't on way too late for Shaw to get back. Excellent throw to hit one-and-a-bit stumps 24/1
    13.3 Ashwin takes a tumbling catch while avoiding Gayle back of a length off-cutter, and Dhawan wanted to pull it hard, but because of the movement, he got it off the toe-end and sends it up swirling in the air to deep midwicket. Ashwin ran back and had it well covered, but Gayle was also converging. In the end, Ashwin did well to hold on to it and avoid a collision with Gayle. Ashwin ran from mid-on, Gayle was running back from midwicket 116/2

    15.1 caught by Curran at deep square leg. Could it be... could it be...? Tried to fetch a pull from outside off to a ball that didn't really bounce all that much, ends up getting more height than distance. Curran has to merely take a few steps to get into position and gobble it up. 128/3
    18.3 knocked him over Ingram wanted to finish it off in a hurry perhaps, danced down the track to drive and ends up yorking himself. Ball screams through and knocks the middle stump out of the ground. Still time for a twist? 155/4
    18.4 there's a collision and a run out, it looks like this was a length ball on the pads and Axar tucked it to deep square leg and called for two. Shami had finished his follow through and was in a legitimate position at the edge of the pitch, watching the ball. Axar turned around and half-collided with him, which meant he wasn't in time to beat the throw. He's not happy. Shami shrugs and says he didn't come in the way. And he's right 156/5
