Deepak Chahar403017.50123121
2.5 to AJ Finch, what a delivery! A brute from Chahar. Shortish, pushes him right back and then gets it to rip away off the deck to square up Finch who gets an outside edge to Suresh Raina who snaffles a sharp catch at first slip with the ball rushing onto him. 14/2
Lungi Ngidi411042.50160010
1.2 to CH Gayle, big appeal turned down, but Gayle walks off! Short ball on the hips. A tentative nudge from Gayle, trying to tickle it fine. He gets a glove on it and Dhoni takes it down leg side. Walks off before Dhoni - who looked very convinced - can think of a review. 7/1
3.6 to KL Rahul, old wounds opened up for Rahul. Remember the Tests in Sri Lanka when he lost his stumps shouldering arms? It's happened again. A length ball that nips in sharply from outside off. Error in judgement costs Rahul. 16/3
17.1 to R Ashwin, a review this time. Ngidi must have charming eyes. Dhoni says he heard nothing but takes the review anyway. But Ngidi is right! Ashwin is looking to chop this length ball down to third man and he's got a very very thin edge on this! Ashwin is gone! What a review. Some climb in in the corridor from a length, very fast, and just enough for Ashwin. 132/7
17.3 to AJ Tye, chips the next one straight to mid-off. Ngidi with the Heavy BallTM in the corridor again. Tye looking to jab at it well in front of the body, can only chip it harmlessly over the bowler. 4 for 8 for Ngidi. Kings XI's season closing rapidly.... 132/8
Harbhajan Singh1013013.0011100
Shardul Thakur3.403329.0093120
16.3 to AR Patel, give that man a raise! Sam Billings takes a stunner! A graceful leap forward after a short sprint in from a straight-ish deep square leg position and a tumble to kill the momentum without letting the elbow hit the floor - top class athleticism. Axar slices the short ball and it's dipping fast. 116/6
19.4 to AS Rajpoot, bowled out. Slower short ball at off stump, makes room and slices one to long-on where Faf is calm and very still a centimetre in front of the boundary. Graceful landing and that's out, confirmed by the replays. 153/10
Dwayne Bravo403929.7572300
12.1 to DA Miller, bowled him! Beauty from Bravo. The perfect yorker. Miller shuffles and comes back in line but it's all too much because he won't be able to keep this yorker from hitting off. Right on the crease and crash. Two set batsmen gone in six balls.. 80/5
18.5 to KK Nair, and then he msicues one to find mid-off. Nair is livid with himself. Seems to have been in the right place once again. A yorker and he's leg-side of it, trying to go inside-out between extra cover and mid-off. Gets it right off the toe to that fielder and whacks the ground with his bat. 150/9
Ravindra Jadeja302317.6650200
11.1 to MK Tiwary, there's a sound as Dhoni takes this. Yeah he's out. No one appeals. But Tiwary and Dhoni both no he's got an edge on this attempted slog sweep. Once again, before the review can be taken, a batsman walks off. Routine length ball outside off and a very tame, sober sequence of play breaks the partnership. Good innings from Tiwary. 76/4

Ankit Rajpoot411924.75182101
4.3 to F du Plessis, Gayle unsure at first slip if he's taken this. Faf driving on the up against an outswinger gets a thick edge. Soft signal is out. Gayle went weirdly at this - with a reverse cup with his right hand and a normal catching position with his other hand! Goes low to his left and it looks like he's managed conclusive evidence to overturn this. Faf is gone! Superb bowling finally rewarded.. 27/2
4.4 to SW Billings, got him! Ankit Rajpoot does not like simple endings! He's keeping Kings XI alive. A length ball that nips away marginally to beat a very nervous-looking forward defence from Billings - he's inside the line. The top of off stump is tonked and suddenly CSK will feel the nerves!. 27/3
Mohit Sharma3.102818.8473110
1.2 to AT Rayudu, got him! The new ball is talking, the new ball as got CSK's best batsman of the season! Mohit hits a length just outside off, Rayudu jabs at it and gets an edge through to Rahul. 3/1
Andrew Tye4047011.7564250
Axar Patel402807.0071100
Ravichandran Ashwin403629.0051210
10.1 to Harbhajan Singh, gets down for another big slog. Not full enough and raps the pad of Harbhajan. He's hanging around contemplating a review but ends up walking away. Comes on straight from a length and pins him in front of middle and leg. 58/4
16.1 to DL Chahar, end of Chahar's adventure. And what a good one it's been for him. Showed two gears and the team will be very happy with him. It's a carrom ball floating away from him outside off. He slogs and gets it high in the off side. Easy catch in the infield. 114/5
