    1.1 Has Rahane sold Samson down the river? Brilliant from Rabada, though! Pushed back to the bowler's right, who was quick to it despite having to change direction, turned and hurled a throw at the non striker's knocking the stumps down to find a diving Samson short of his ground. Rahane had taken off with the shot but by the time he refused the single, Samson had responded 5/1
    13.1 there's the breakthrough! Length ball from Axar, and Smith looks to go straight down the ground but skews it off towards long off, and Morris takes a well-judged catch just by the boundary skirting. May have miscued the shot because of his elbow issues, but this has been another terrific half-century from Steven Smith 135/2
    15.5 full ball, and he has muscled this towards long on, but not got the distance! Shreyas Iyer gets under it and takes the catch easily in the end. Went off the toe-end of the bat, and Stokes has to go. What a platform for the other batsmen to follow 157/3
    16.4 GONE AGAIN! Slower ball, outside off, and he was looking to get towards covers, but just popped it up towards Rutherford at cover. Third golden duck in a row! Somewhere, you just know Ajit Agarkar is watching and smiling :) 163/4

    19.3 Rabada strikes at last! Gets it full, and uproots Binny's middle stump, as he backs away and looks to go inside out. That was fast, accurate, and perfect. A smile from the bowler, and a little shake of the hand with the vanquished opponent. Good to see 187/5

    19.6 yorker again! Perhaps just missing the perfect yorker this time around, but does enough to rattle the furniture as Parag backed away and tried to go down the ground 191/6

    16.4 tossed up, and he has played this towards long on, and holed out! Bad shot selection from Shaw here. Delhi were cruising, and Pant was the one who was dominating the bowlers, but he went for the glory shot, and only found Riyan. Smart captaincy, in that he was a few yards within the long on boundary. Is there a twist in the tale here? 161/3
    7.3 Shreyas places faith in the googly again and gets his man! Dhawan came down the wicket, Shreyas bowled it fuller and wider and the keeper did the rest 72/1
    8.5 it's the old saying about adding two wickets to a score and the Capitals lose their captain to a horrendous stroke! It was short on middle, perhaps there for the pull shot but the execution was poor as he went too hard and got it off the toe end, offering a simple catch to deep midwicket 77/2

    17.6 short, and he has looked to slice this towards long off, but it goes straight up, and Riyan takes the catch! 175/4
