15.5 to V Kohli, holes out to deep midwicket. He bowls a slower ball at off stump. It's at a good length and might have disappeared with a slog on another pitch. But here he has to make all the pace and he can't do it enough. Finds Smith at the boundary line. 159/2
12.4 to CH Gayle, lovely from Thampi. Showed incredible skill to nail his yorkers in the last game conistently and repeats this time. Pings him in front of the stumps as he looks to flick this into the leg side. It caught him on the toes and Gayle is a little unhappy to be given out. Slight chance that could've slid down leg. 122/1

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Dwayne Smith, 1.2 ov), 2-37 (Suresh Raina, 3.6 ov), 3-103 (Aaron Finch, 9.4 ov), 4-106 (Dinesh Karthik, 10.6 ov), 5-137 (Brendon McCullum, 14.4 ov), 6-165 (Ravindra Jadeja, 17.4 ov), 7-191 (Ishan Kishan, 19.4 ov)
9.4 to AJ Finch, superbly bowled. Finch is done in. Slow through the air on off and middle, Finch is drawn in by that full length. It dips late so Finch isn't close to the pitch as he looks to drive. The ball spins, beats the bat and settled in Jadhav's gloves who does the rest. A left-arm spinner's dream dismissal. 103/3
1.2 to DR Smith, and Chahal strikes. Kohli's move is vindicated. Lions in big, big trouble. A flat delivery on the pads, nothing much about it. But Smith struggles to get his bat through the line of the ball. It comes down at an angle and the ball takes the leading edge. Flies all the way to deep square leg. Six at the M Chinnaswamy, I'd say.. 1/1
3.6 to SK Raina, and the worst ball of the day accounts for Raina. Bad luck. Actually, that is pretty well bowled. He sees Raina coming so bowls a legbreak down leg. Once he's out of his crease, Raina has to play a stroke. He attempts a sweep but the ball goes straight to Watson at short fine leg. Raina's cameo ends. Gujarat just have to keep going.. 37/2
14.4 to BB McCullum, huge wicket. Is that the match? Didn't mind tossing it up. Very slow through the air on leg and middle, McCullum gets under it but doesn't get enough power or timing behind it. Gets more elevation than distance. Milne takes a simple reverse-cupped catch at deep midwicket. End of a lovely innings from Baz. Chahal's control is impressive. 137/5
10.6 to KD Karthik, and gone! Big big big wicket. A few dot balls creates that kind of pressure. A cross seam delivery outside off, Karthik chooses timing over power, correctly. But doesn't time it well. Goes straight to Kohli at long-on. On short boundaries, if you can hit it hard and mis-time it, the ball can still clear the boundary. But Karthik rarely depends on muscle. Deserved wicket for Aravind. 106/4
19.4 to Ishan Kishan, taken. Chahal takes the catch. Good length delivery outside off, Kishan is through his pull, the ball skews off the outside half and settles in Chahal's catch at cover. A quality fight from Kishan though. 191/7
