Mohammed Shami4044111.0094301
2.4 to CA Lynn, right underneath it! That's threatening a few satellites as it soars into the Kolkata (k)night ... Miller calls for it, braces for impact as it drops to earth like a comet, and falls to the turf to cushion the catch! Great hands. 34/1
Varun Chakravarthy3035111.6683300
14.3 to N Rana, taken by long-off running in. He's deceived the batsman again, tossing it up and keeping it slow. Rana plays the line - because the ball is on leg stump - but the ball turns away from him, takes the top edge and is then caught very very well by Agarwal racing forward from the edge of the boundary to almost the 30-yard circle. Quiet relief on Varun's face, and several pats on the back to make him feel better. Good stuff from Kings XI. 146/3
Hardus Viljoen403619.00113220
3.3 to SP Narine, sliced wildly up in the air, and Viljoen has a debut wicket in his first over!. Rahul called for it early, watched it carefully, swallowed it with a late adjustment. Back of a length and following Narine who was cramped for room on the slog. That's the breathing space KXI needed!. 36/2
Andrew Tye403719.2573200
19.4 to AD Russell, taken at deep midwicket! Right on the edge of the boundary too! Eden rises to its ball-bashing hero. Russell goes for 47 off 17! And this shot too - a front foot pull to a bouncer that came up over his shoulder - is absolutely pummelled, But dragging a ball like that - especially from that height - takes some timing off the shot - even from Russell's shots. Good composure from Agarwal to track the ball, time his jump and take it cleanly. 213/4

Prasidh Krishna4042010.50106110
Lockie Ferguson4042110.50103320
1.4 to KL Rahul, a flimsy flap to mid-off! Rahul is through the ball too soon, driving on a full length, the bottom hand comes off the bat, and Yadav makes no mistake.. 11/1
Andre Russell302127.0072000
4.2 to CH Gayle, Gayle's gone! Hits the deck hard, Gayle is cramped for room as he top-edges his pull, and Krishna, I think, takes the catch ... just ... as he and his team-mate at mid-off converge behind the bowler and all but collide!. 37/2
7.3 to SN Khan, attempted wipe over the leg side, but Karthik simply jogs round behind the stumps and swallows another loose top-edge! Easy pickings for KKR, and they've got themselves a stranglehold now .... 60/3
Kuldeep Yadav403208.0062120
Sunil Narine2026013.0034100
Piyush Chawla302618.6662100
15.2 to MA Agarwal, bowls him with the googly. Agarwal does try to hit with the turn, but he's into the shot too early and Chawla, having held the pace off, but kept the revs up, watches it spin through the gate and crash into leg stump. 134/4
