Mohit Sharma4040110.0084210
17.5 to N Rana, to the moon and back, Miller settles underneath to take a tumbling catch. Rana looks to hoick this short of length knuckleball from across the line, didn't get the power he would've liked.. 218/5
Mujeeb Ur Rahman2.2028012.0042200
Ravichandran Ashwin2.4036013.5034210
Barinder Sran3048116.0055400
19.2 to KD Karthik, walks across, slaps this length ball straight down Miller's throat at long off. Sran deliberately angled it across so that the batsman would've to fetch it. Excellent change of pace as well.. 230/6
Andrew Tye4041410.2574220
5.2 to CA Lynn, Tye drags his length back, cramps the batsman for room, and bowls him. Short and angling into the body from over the wicket, Lynn swivels into a pull. The ball hits the thigh, then his arm, the ball swivels, and bounces up to trim the bails. Lucky break for Kings XI. 53/1
11.3 to SP Narine, Tye bangs it short and has Narine nicking behind. Banged in short and slanting away outside off from over the wicket, Narine can't get on top of it. He pulls weakly and edges it behind to Rahul. 128/2
11.5 to RV Uthappa, Mohit pulls off a smart catch to his right. He gets into a side-on position and snags the ball. Slower one outside off, possibly a knuckle ball, Uthappa is early into his shot and ends up carving it in the air. So, Tye gets both set batsmen in the same over. 129/3
16.6 to AD Russell, top-edges the pull because he's beaten for pace, went a mile in the air. KL called loud and clear, and ensured he didn't take his eyes off.. 205/4

Sunil Narine4044111.0062400
8.6 to KL Rahul, Narine comes from around the wicket and has Rahul chopping a sweep back onto the stumps. Rahul's wicket exposes Kings XI's lengthy lower order. Full and slid through on middle, Rahul stretches across for a sweep, the ball sneaks through the legs. Oh wait, the replays suggest the ball brushes the thigh and disturbs the stumps. Kings XI lose Rahul and with it the game? Narine says enough of the deadpan and celebrates the big wicket. 93/4
Prasidh Krishna403127.75103120
19.1 to AJ Tye, DK throws himself to his right to complete an excellent catch. Banged in short at the body, Tye shuffles across and gloves an attempted pull. DK does the rest behind the stumps. 209/7
19.3 to R Ashwin, skiddy full ball, slanting in from over the wicket, 144ks, Ashwin looks to slog over midwicket. He misses it and is hit on the unprotected knee. Trapped in front. The umpire takes his own sweet time before raising his finger. 210/8
Javon Searles4052113.0043430
15.2 to AJ Finch, Maiden IPL wicket for Searles. Full on middle, Finch's strength is to muscle the ball. He, instead, searches for a paddle and picks out Kuldeep at short fine leg. 156/6
Andre Russell4041310.25102400
5.4 to CH Gayle, the bouncer has done the trick! Pacy bouncer, Gayle is late on the pull and in doing so, feathers one to a leaping Karthik. Fist pumps. One Jamaican gets the other. 57/1
5.5 to MA Agarwal, pulled straight down the throat of deep square. This is a fiery bouncer, Agarwal had decided yesterday that he'll pull this, got big on him but he went through with the stroke but showed signs of pulling out very late. But by then, the deed was done. Sensational from DreRuss. I have no reason why the onfield umpire even went upstairs to check for the no-ball. Agarwal didn't control the pull because he wasn't even looking at the delivery. His poor IPL season after a magnificent breakout domestic season continues.. 57/2
7.6 to KK Nair, backs away, swings through but picks out the tall Prasidh, who takes it with his wrong hand at long on. He went for it with two hands, but it took a while for him to bring them together, by which time the ball had lodged in his right hand. Lucky he managed to hold on, has a sheepish smile but years later when someone sees the scorecard, all they'll know is this was Prasidh's catch. Kings XI in trouble. 79/3
Kuldeep Yadav2029114.5021310
11.6 to AR Patel, Axar aims to clear long-off, no dice. Searles plucks another catch. Full and spinning away outside off, lofted with the turn but the Bajan judges it well and claims an excellent overhead catch. 119/5
