2.5 to AC Gilchrist, Narine has struck in his first over, Gilchrist grimaces as soon as he realises he has top-edged the attempted swing over midwicket, the off break from Narine did not turn much, it bounced just around off, and Gilchrist ended up hitting it straight and high, cover settled under it. 16/1
4.2 to SE Marsh, he's gone through Marsh, another huge blow from Narine, it is the one that turns in to the left-hander, call it the knuckle ball or flicked ball or whatever, tossed up around middle and off, draws him forward, he pushes at the original line, but it spins back in to go through the gate. 21/2
17.5 to Bipul Sharma, they keep falling, Narine gets another one, big turning offspinner again, tossed up on a length outside leg stump, and spits across him as he pushes forward, a thin edge to the keeper and he walks back immediately. 104/7
17.6 to P Kumar, PK is gone first ball, it was the flicked delivery that turns away from the right-hander, tossed up back of a length on middle, straightening and bouncing, PK had no clue about it and pushed inside the line to lose his bails. 104/8
19.4 to Harmeet Singh, that has to be one of the most bizarre dismissals, Harmeet has walked outside off, and scooped Narine into the keeper's gloves, Narine has five, he has been nearly unplayable today. 128/9
Shakib Al Hasan402616.5091100
11.6 to Mandeep Singh, Mandeep has found deep midwicket with precision, got down on the knee for the slog-sweep, but hit it straight to Tendo on the rope. 73/3
Jaydev Unadkat3032010.6621200
Rajat Bhatia401423.50130000
16.3 to P Dogra, it's difficult to get power on the big shots off these really slow slower ones on a slow pitch, Dogra looking to go down the ground, ends up hitting it weakly to long on. 99/5
16.5 to AD Mascarenhas, Punjab have no answers against Bhatia, they can't get him away at all, and he has struck twice this over, Mascarenhas caught on the crease looking to push at a length ball that bounces, and he ends up feathering it to the keeper. 100/6

Bhargav Bhatt402426.0082000
1.6 to JH Kallis, what a blinder from Dogra, incredible take at cover, Kallis had made room to a tossed up ball and smoked it in the air, Dogra put in a big dive to his left at cover and caught it one-handed. 13/1
11.2 to MK Tiwary, KKR have lost their third wicket, they had gone into a bit of a shell lately, Bhatt tossed it up, Tiwary pushed for the turn, the ball carried in with the angle to strike him in front, gone. 73/3
Dimitri Mascarenhas403418.5073100
3.4 to G Gambhir, straight to the bowler, Gautam pushes the length ball going across him, does not bother to keep it down, right to Mascarenhas in his followthrough. 30/2
Harmeet Singh402716.7573000
19.3 to RN ten Doeschate, he's bowled Tendo., the legbreak appears innocuous, but it has taken out Tendo, who looked to swipe it through midwicket from outside off stump, an inside edge results, also finds its way on to the stumps. 128/7
Piyush Chawla401834.50110100
12.1 to MS Bisla, Punjab are back in this, Bisla departs now, Chawla flighting it up for the drive, Bisla goes for it, thinking it will spin away, but the ball does not turn, carries in with the angle and takes out middle stump. 79/4
12.4 to YK Pathan, Punjab edge ahead now, what a fightback from them, Chawla takes out Yusuf, who tries an awkward paddle sweep and is bowled, tossed up legbreak on leg stump, Yusuf reaches out, but somehow misses the ball, it just brushed his gloves, and carried on to hit the stumps. 79/5
14.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, Shakib has thrown it away, goes for another slow sweep after escaping the previous delivery, it is another googly from Chawla, Shakib was playing for the turn into him, top-edge swirled high and Chawla took it. 88/6
