Umesh Yadav412345.75132101
0.6 to MA Agarwal, got him, that's an excellent delivery. Looked like the wobble-seam/offcutter release. On the fuller side of a length, and it nips back in from just outside off. Mayank was shuffling across premeditatedly, looking to target the leg side. Ends up playing all across this one as it nips past his inside edge, striking his front pad right in front. Fifth wicket for Umesh in the powerplay this season. 2/1
8.6 to LS Livingstone, fullish, not as wide as the previous balls, and Livingstone takes on the big hit down the ground. Doesn't quite middle it, though, and Southee catches it right on the edge of the long-off boundary. A very, very timely wicket for KKR. 78/4
14.2 to Harpreet Brar, stumps all over the place, and Harpreet Brar is dismissed for the first time in seven IPL innings. Length ball angling across to off stump, doesn't do all that much. In fact, it looks like it deviates slightly inward to straighten a bit, but Brar, opening his bat face to play it square on the off side, is beaten on the outside edge. Off stump is knocked back, as are the other stumps. 102/7
14.4 to RD Chahar, got him, that wide slip is immediately in play! Banged in short on off stump, gets it to bounce steeply, and Chahar, trying to get his upper body out of the way while also looking to get his bat up and defend, ends up hitting it to the right of the slip fielder off the sticker of the bat. Nitish Rana dives to his right and completes a good catch. 102/8
Tim Southee403629.00145201
5.5 to S Dhawan, got him. Steps out again, and it looks like the three-quarter ball/offcutter that straightens from a length outside off. Looks to crash it away through the covers, and gets a thick edge that Billings does very well to catch low down, diving forward. 62/3
12.1 to M Shahrukh Khan, another attempted at a big hit, another wicket. Good ball from Southee, back of a length outside off, and Shahrukh is caught in that awkward zone between a straight-bat hit down the ground and a horizontal-bat pull. Ends up skewing the ball high in the air over the on side, and Rana moves to his left from short midwicket and settles under the ball. 92/6
Shivam Mavi2039119.5043420
3.5 to PBB Rajapaksa, got him, but what an innings this has been. Pure T20. Digs in a back-of-a-length ball that's angling into off stump or thereabouts. Slightly cramped for room as he tries to back away and hit over extra-cover, and he ends up spooning a simple catch to mid-off. 43/2
Varun Chakravarthy401403.50140020
Sunil Narine402315.75131120
9.3 to RA Bawa, bowled him, that's a Narine special. Flat, quick, angling into off stump from wide of the crease, and it straightens dramatically from there to beat the outside edge and knock back off stump. Bawa's feet were stuck in the crease, not going forward, back or across, and he looks to defend and plays a long way inside the line. 84/5
Andre Russell0.20010.0020000
18.1 to K Rabada, what a terrific catch from Southee! Runs all the way from long-off to mid-on and finishes by throwing himself forward to grab the ball in both hands, low down. Russell bowls a slower offcutter, angling it away from Rabada's hitting arc. Clears his front leg and goes hard at it, but manages more height than distance. 137/9

Arshdeep Singh3032010.6695101
Kagiso Rabada302317.6683010
1.6 to AM Rahane, gobbled up at short third! Rabada has his first Punjab wicket. Wide outside off stump, slightly full of a length but not quite a half-volley. Rahane comes forward looking to drive but is playing away from his body, and his thick outside edge flies to Odean, who takes a good, comfortable catch on the edge of the circle, moving to his left with his weight coming forwards. Punjab will need early wickets to stand a chance here and they have one. 14/1
Odean Smith2039119.5043401
4.3 to VR Iyer, slapped into the off side, but Brar clings on at cover! Banged in on a length, wide outside the off stump, and Venky frees his arms, standing tall to slap it away through the off side. But it flies straight to Harpreet Brar on the edge of the ring. It reaches him so quickly that he hardly has time to react, but he sticks his hands in the way. It bursts out, but he reacts brilliantly, grabbing it with his left hand as he tumbles forwards. Superb effort in the field and Odean has a breakthrough. 38/2
Rahul Chahar411323.25130010
6.4 to SS Iyer, tossed up, and Shreyas is lured into the big shot. He top-edges his slog sweep, looking to hit towards the short side, but it flies miles up into the air. Rabada settles underneath it, and takes a straightforward catch. Shreyas falls - he looked a million dollars against the seamers in the Powerplay but much less comfortable against Chahar. 51/3
6.6 to N Rana, full googly, smacked on the pad. Chahar is convinced, pleading with the umpire, and the finger goes up! Rana reviews. Nowhere near the inside edge as he lunged forward to defend. Pitched in-line, impact in-line, smashing into the top of middle stump. Saiyed Khalid's decision is upheld and Chahar starts with a double-wicket maiden!. 51/4
