    4.1 short, and he has got his man this time! The trap was set for Gayle, and he falls into it. Short ball, angles across him, and he looks to scoop this towards deep backward square leg, but that's where Shubman Gill is stationed, and he gleefully accepts this. Young Warrier has removed both of Kings XI Punjab's top-performing batsmen this season! 22/2
    2.3 the first wicket comes through! Slower ball, straight, and Rahul looks to chip this through midwicket. Bails out at the last moment, and ends up going straight towards mid on. Chris Lynn, with a microphone on him as he speaks to the broadcasters, runs across over his right shoulder and takes a good catch 13/1
    13.3 run out sent upstairs. Is that a direct hit? Mayank diving full length at the non-strikers. No it's not direct hit, Narine's got his hands in a mess but he's got enough hand on the ball as it hits the stumps before his follow through takes the rest of it. Agarwal is gone. It was a full ball outside off, flicked between long-on and deep midwicket and the throw was right on top of the stumps. Agarwal has thrown away yet another IPL start 111/4
    10.5 golden arm Rana puts another one in his book! Oh boy. Short ball, proper log-hop at an off stump line. Gets deep in the crease and looks to pull this over midwicket. But for one, this ground has big square boundaries, and two, he's lost his shape as this comes on a little slower than he expects. Dragged straight to the fielder. What an ordinary end to a stunning innings 91/3
    17.3 held at extra cover. Gurney with the offcutter. Short of a length in the corridor. Makes room and tries to slap it over mid-off. Decent plan. But a better one from Gurney. No pace on it, gets it off the toe-end. Uthappa pedals backwards and takes it just past the edge of the circle 149/5

    18.1 dragged on! Another offcutter does it for KKR. This is at a length outside off. Ashwin splits his legs and looks to carve this but the under-edge gets it into the stumps 151/6

    5.6 short, and he has top-edged this. It goes up, and Tye picks up the return catch! Could this be a turning point of sorts? This over had already produced 15, but Lynn wanted to maximise the last ball of the Powerplay, and paid the price in the process 62/1
    10.3 picks out long-off accurately. Uthappa checks his shot and is taken about ten yards inside the fence. Length ball cutting away in the corridor. Has room, makes more. But for some reason, doesn't swing hard through the line. Lobs it to Agarwal 100/2
    14.5 taken at deep square! Short and into the body once again. Russell finally connects on the pull. But it's not ideal connection. Slices it. Big ground. And he won't clear it 150/3
