2.3 to KS Sharma, First wicket. A short ball angling towards the bower. Karan goes for the pull but the ball hits him high on the bat and goes straight up. Shardul takes a couple of steps forward from short midwicket and settles under it. 14/1
6.3 to PN Mankad, with the field spread now, Mankad holes out. Was short of length at the stumps. He backed away and went aerial over covers. Didn't get it from the middle of the bat though and Harshit runs in from sweeper cover to take it comfortably. 55/2
6.5 to MP Stoinis, another short ball, much nastier than the previous one. Much higher as well. Stoinis once again fends at it, gets a glove and the ball lobs towards the flying slip where Iyer takes an easy catch. 55/3
10.1 to Q de Kock, De Kock departs as well. It was full around off, a googly. De Kock went for the slog sweep but got more height on it than distance. Russell moved to his left from deep midwicket, settled under it, and completed the catch by falling on his back. 73/5
18.3 to N Pooran, full but further outside off this time. Pooran throws his bat at it but fails to middle and holes out to wide third man. 159/7
18.5 to Ravi Bishnoi, a length ball around off. Bishnoi swings across, misses, and the ball hits the top of the off stump. 162/8
9.4 to KH Pandya, Narine strikes in his first over. Bowled at 99.6kph, on a length around leg stump. Krunal goes for the slog sweep but fails to middle it. Rinku runs in to his left and takes the catch near deep square leg. 71/4
17.6 to A Badoni, Narine bowls this one wide outside off. Badoni looks to repeat the shot but gets a top-edge and Shardul from deep midwicket moves to his left to take the catch. 147/6

Fall of wickets: 1-61 (Venkatesh Iyer, 5.5 ov), 2-78 (Nitish Rana, 8.3 ov), 3-82 (Jason Roy, 9.6 ov), 4-108 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 13.4 ov), 5-120 (Andre Russell, 15.4 ov), 6-134 (Shardul Thakur, 17.4 ov), 7-136 (Sunil Narine, 17.6 ov) • DRS
9.6 to JJ Roy, Gone, the spinners keep striking for LSG! Looked like the ball kept low there. Yup, it skidded through off the pitch. Krunal bowled it on the shorter side of a length on middle and leg, as it straightened after pitching, and just zipped through quickly to hit middle stump. Roy wanted to clip across the line but missed, even as the ball kept low and he was done in. 82/3
5.5 to VR Iyer, chipped to extra cover! Simple catch for Bishnoi. Iyer looked to punch at this ball, which was short and turning away. But looked like the stopped before coming on to him, even as it bounced comfortably enough for a back-foot punch. Anyway, Gowtham strikes after a rapid powerplay for KKR. 61/1
8.3 to N Rana, ballooned to extra cover! That is 100 T20 wickets for Bishnoi too. Even so, signs of the ball stopping on the pitch before coming on to the batter. So Nitish is beaten by the slowness of the pitch, as much as by the delivery itself. It was shortish outside off, and turning away while bouncing considerably. Nitish half-pulled and half-poked, as the ball took off from the top edge. 78/2
15.4 to AD Russell, the off stump is gone! Russell was eyeing the leg-side boundary this time, hoicking hard across the line but getting beaten completely. Bishnoi pulled his length back to go on a short of a length around off, as the ball shaped to turn in from outside off. Russell swung early, and had to walk back. 120/5
13.4 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, juggling catch by Bishnoi! One, two and in at the third attempt. He was placed at point, where Gurbaz skied the ball after trying to loft at this length ball which was slightly wide of off. But Thakur had taken pace off there, and so Gurbaz was beaten. There was no timing, as the ball flew up for Bishnoi to gobble it eventually. 108/4
17.4 to SN Thakur, taken at deep backward square! The longer boundary comes into play, and Thakur fails to clear it. It was a short delivery pitching on middle, and climbing nicely after pitching. Thakur looked to pull, but the bounce got the better of him, as he almost swivelled while pulling. The ball got high on to his bat, and flew towards the fielder. 134/6
