Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Devdutt Padikkal, 1.4 ov), 2-33 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 3.6 ov), 3-33 (Jos Buttler, 4.1 ov), 4-68 (Sanju Samson, 9.3 ov), 5-99 (Daryl Mitchell, 14.2 ov), 6-102 (Shimron Hetmyer, 15.3 ov), 7-110 (Trent Boult, 17.1 ov), 8-121 (Prasidh Krishna, 18.4 ov)
1.4 to D Padikkal, nailed in front of the stumps, up goes the finger! Padikkal reviews, as well he might, it was back on the fuller length, did it pitch outside leg? There's certainly no inside edge... Ball Tracker is taking an age... the tension! Nope, that is very squarely pitching on leg! Hitting middle. That is plumb!. 11/1
3.6 to R Ashwin, top-edged, Siraj calls and claims the catch! Short, but not that short, outside the batter's eyeline, as Ashwin commits to the front foot and can't get over the stroke. Straight up in the air, and plops into the bowler's hands roughly where silly point would be. 33/2
4.1 to JC Buttler, pulled into the hands of the diving mid-on! Vast, vast wicket! Hazlewood rightly given a second over in the Powerplay, a tight line, a fraction short, but not short enough to get over the top of the stroke. Siraj, permanently in the action so far, leaps forward to grab hold inches from the turf. This is getting very rowdy now!. 33/3
14.2 to DJ Mitchell, swings through the line, but straight at long-on! It was do-or-die time for Mitchell, Hazlewood took a nugget of pace off the ball, and Maxwell on the rope does the rest!. 99/5
9.3 to SV Samson, ping! Out leaps the off stump! Another reverse sweep, but Hasaranga slides it through a touch faster and fuller, and that's a massive and timely breakthrough. Fifth time in T20s that he's got his man too. 68/4
15.3 to SO Hetmyer, hacked high, high, high into the leg side! Hetmeyer kneels into a slog-sweep, but he can't connect properly, fetching it from outside off, a spiralling top-edge, Maxi settles for the catch, and another massive wicket as he punches his blade in annoyance!. 102/6
17.1 to TA Boult, simply stunning take! Kohli at short midwicket flings himself into a full-blooded pull, low to his left and there's a moment of stunned silence before anyone really twigs he's clung on! He had a sighter from Boult's first ball, but that was quite the way to atone!. 110/7

Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Virat Kohli, 1.4 ov), 2-37 (Faf du Plessis, 6.2 ov), 3-37 (Glenn Maxwell, 6.3 ov), 4-58 (Rajat Patidar, 9.6 ov), 5-66 (Suyash Prabhudessai, 11.4 ov), 6-72 (Dinesh Karthik, 12.4 ov), 7-92 (Shahbaz Ahmed, 15.4 ov), 8-102 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 16.4 ov), 9-107 (Mohammed Siraj, 17.4 ov), 10-115 (Harshal Patel, 19.3 ov)
1.4 to V Kohli, Has the bumper got the better of Kohli? Is it off the helmet or the bat? Kohli's walking! Only nine runs and a wry smile to show. Was banged in short, right at the badge of the helmet. Seemed as if he missed the pull and got it off his helmet. But after Parag ran in from backward point and took a good diving catch, Kohli shook his head and began the long walk back. Got it off the toe end off the bat and no helmet at all. Superb delivery, must give it to Prasidh for working Kohli over.. 10/1
17.4 to Mohammed Siraj, Aims Navi Mumbai goes Nagpur! Full ball, Siraj looks to smash it over mid-off. Gets it off the thick outer half and the ball carries to Kuldeep at third man.. 107/9
9.6 to RM Patidar, 150th IPL wicket for R Ashwin and gets it in some style. Again bowls it from wide of the crease, the carrom ball that skids after landing on a good length. Patidar is back to cut it but misses and loses his off stump. Ashwin is up and running towards covers in celebration.. 58/4
11.4 to SS Prabhudessai, Catching practice for Riyan Parag, who gets the bihu dance out! Prabhudessai charges down to the tossed up ball and looks to go over long-on but fails to get the elevation. Easy take for the fielder there. It was the conventional offspinning delivery this time. RCB in further hole.. 66/5
15.4 to Shahbaz Ahmed, Keep Riyan Parag out of the game at your own peril! Shahbaz looks to tonk the shortish ball over long-on. But he ends up skying it up. Parag runs in from long-off even as the cover fielder runs backwards. The youngster puts in the dive to take that inches off the ground to give Ashwin his third.. 92/7
6.2 to F du Plessis, And Kuldeep strikes off his second ball. Soft dismissal. Length ball outside off, du Plessis looks to slap it over cover. Finds Buttler stationed there. He can't believe it but Kuldeep is ecstatic.. 37/2
6.3 to GJ Maxwell, What a start for Kuldeep Sen and Royals! This is as clever as clever can be. Sets the field up for the bumper - deep point, third man, fine leg and deep square leg in place. Plays with Maxwell's mind to push him back. Then bowls a length ball outside off, which Maxwell just pushes at. Gets a thick edge straight to slip. Sen is on a roll and a hat-trick.. 37/3
16.4 to PWH de Silva, The bouncer gets too hot for Hasaranga. The heat in Pune is already high and Kuldeep is increasing it with his incessant short-bowling. Hasaranga looks to heave this but ends up skying it, hurried by the extra pace. Sen settles under it at where non-striker would have been and takes it comfortably.. 102/8
19.3 to HV Patel, Fourth catch for Parag as Royal Challengers fold for 115. Length ball on the stumps, Harshal holes out to long-on, who didn't have to move an inch.. 115/10
