Krishnappa Gowtham301525.00102000
0.2 to SP Narine, aaaand stumped! Narine came dancing down the wicket, but Gowtham dropped his length. Pitches it just outside off and the ball spins away from Narine. He misses, and Klaasen whips the bails off in no time. Big, big wicket!. 4/1
2.1 to RV Uthappa, leading edge, and caught by the bowler! Tossed it up, and Uthappa tried to work it towards the leg side. Through his shot too early, and the ball lobs straight back to KG. Big jump from the big man, and he manages to hold on to it. Two wickets in seven balls for Gowtham. 17/2
Jofra Archer403328.25122231
3.4 to N Rana, disaster! Mistimed to midwicket. Full on off, and Rana looks for the release shot. Attempts to slog it over midwicket, but it's sliced. Easy as ABC for Unadkat. 24/3
14.2 to Shubman Gill, cramps him for space, and finds the edge! Back of a length on off and zipping straight through. Gill chose to cut, but it was close to his body. Finds the bat's top edge, and Klaasen makes no mistake. An exciting innings comes to an end. 106/5
Jaydev Unadkat2033016.5014200
Ish Sodhi401503.75110000
Shreyas Gopal403418.5082200
7.6 to CA Lynn, punched straight back to Shreyas. Big wicket! Another googly that he lands on length outside off, this stopped on Lynn as he looked to punch, checked his stroke and Shreyas takes the simple offering on his followthrough. KKR in some trouble.. 51/4
Ben Laughlin3035211.6653220
17.1 to KD Karthik, toe-ends this lofted hit and Rahane, moving backwards from the edge of the ring at cover, takes an excellent catch. Not easy, but he covered ground nicely. Big wicket, but DK's played a gem. Good execution of the slower ball, there as no pace to work with for DK.. 135/6
19.4 to JPR Scantlebury-Searles, has he timed this? No. Excellent catch by Archer running around from long-off. The good thing though is they've crossed over, so Russell will be on strike. Archer had to be mindful of the long-on fielder running across too, but he stopped in his tracks to allow Archer to complete it.. 164/7

Andre Russell302207.3350100
Prasidh Krishna402817.00104000
17.6 to STR Binny, swept to square leg! Just three off the over. It was a dipping slower ball on off, and Binny tried to sweep. Plays it eventually with one hand, and it's completely out of control. Sliced to Lynn. 130/4
Piyush Chawla402426.0072000
5.1 to RA Tripathi, He survived in the previous over but the lost review doesn't cost KKR. Tripathi chips this back and Chawla puts his right hand out on the followthrough to pluck that off running to the left. Tripathi jabbed at this googly, got it high on the bat and it lobbed. Eden roars. 47/1
16.5 to SV Samson, in the air! And "hear that roar", says Varun from the Eden Gardens! Searles holds on at long on and the crowd goes ballistic. It was full on off, and he went for the pull once again. This time he can only slice it, and that brings an end to Samson's innings. 126/3
Sunil Narine403909.7592310
Kuldeep Yadav401814.50132000
14.1 to AM Rahane, caught and bowled, once again! Tossed up on leg stump, and it's the wrong'un. Rahane prepares to sweep, but he's played it way too early. Comes off the bat's toe end, and the leading edge is swallowed by the bowler. 109/2
