19.3 to AD Russell, holes out to deep mid wicket! Banged into the track on off stump. After all that has happened, there was no chance that Russell would not swipe at this. He gets a decent chunk of it but he is hitting to the longer part of the ground. The sweeper at deep mid wicket judges the catch to perfection, times his jump and completes it safely!. 146/4

Paul Walter402927.2560200
4.3 to JM Clarke, skies it, and taken at mid on! Slower delivery on a full length just outside off stump. Clarke looks to tonk it into next week but is slightly early into the stroke. He swings at it anyway and shanks it terribly. The ball goes miles up towards Nabi, who settles himself at mid on and completes the catch!. 32/1
12.1 to DM de Silva, and he picks up de Silva straightaway! Slower delivery dug into the track on off stump. de Silva looks to heave it over deep mid wicket but the lack of pace means that he hits it straight down deep mid wicket's throat!. 80/2
Noor Ahmad402716.75101110
15.4 to PR Stirling, stumped by a country mile! Googly on a length just outside off stump. Stirling skips down the track, and soon finds that he is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball. But because he has advanced, he tries his luck by swishing at it, only to miss. Gurbaz does the rest and the Knight Riders lose their third!. 104/3

Akeal Hosein402827.00152120
9.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, holes out to deep backward square leg! Tossed up on a length just outside off stump. Gurbaz shuffles across and looks to sweep it over deep square leg. The ball bounces a touch extra, though, and that means Gurbaz gets a top edge that lobs up towards deep backward square leg. The fielder does the rest and sends Gurbaz back on his way!. 91/2
11.2 to JL Denly, soft dismissal! Full delivery on middle and leg stump that sticks in the surface. Denly comes forward and has a loose poke at it. The ball pings off the higher part of the bat and loops towards short extra cover, where Narine does the rest!. 108/4
Lahiru Kumara403639.0084110
5.2 to T Kohler-Cadmore, chops it on! Back of a length delivery on off stump that rushes onto the batter. Kohler-Cadmore has a waft at it but is just a touch late on it. The ball screams off the inside edge and then crashes into middle and leg stump! Just what the Knight Riders needed at this stage!. 62/1
13.4 to PI Walter, knocks him over! Full, fast and at the stumps. Walter actually helps Kumara out by backing away and looking to carve it over extra cover. He is late on the stroke, however, and sees the ball breeze past the bat. He hears the death rattle soon after and the Knight Riders have their fifth!. 125/5
13.6 to AJ Hose, huge appeal, and given! Oh my! This game has come alive! Slower delivery on a full length on middle and leg stump. Hose does not pick it, falls across and then fails to make contact. The ball raps him on the pads, right in front of the stumps and the umpire gives it out. Hose wants to have another look at it, though! Was that sliding down leg? No bat involved, according to Ultra Edge. And three reds on Ball Tracking! Hose has to depart!. 126/6

10.3 to MP Stoinis, de Silva gets Stoinis this time! Slowed up just a shade and this seems a fraction shorter than the previous delivery too. Stoinis reaches out for it but it not close enough to the ball. In the end, he slices it towards long off, where the fielder takes a comfortable catch!. 100/3
