Varun Aaron412025.00172100
0.3 to CA Lynn, Cleans him up and what a return for Varun aaron! Length outside off, nipped back in, skidded onto Lynn who went for the cut and chopped it back on. 0/1
4.6 to Shubman Gill, he's bowled him with a beauty! Started well outside off and swung back in sharply as Gill came down on it with an angled bat, getting a slight inside edge back onto his stumps. 31/2
Oshane Thomas403218.0083101
16.5 to AD Russell, he's caught now Was dropped twice but not third-time lucky. Short ball on the stumps, he clears his front leg to pull. Like he has all through this innings, there's no timing at all on that, and perhaps the hurt wrist reduces power too. Ends up going off the toe-end to deep midwicket that Riyan Parag takes comfortably.. 119/5
Jofra Archer402807.00120310
Shreyas Gopal3031110.3394200
8.2 to N Rana, another googly on off, Rana gets a hint of width as it spins away, goes for the cut but can't control it due to the extra bounce and ends up spooning a simple catch to cover point. 42/3
Riyan Parag10707.0021000
Jaydev Unadkat4050112.5074410
17.2 to CR Brathwaite, Rahane with a fine catch at deep midwicket the former Royals captain shows his team-mates how it's done. Length ball on the stumps, Brathwaite is targetting cow corner and over, but ends up getting a toe-end. Rahane runs to his right and tumbles forward to hold on to the catch. 131/6

Carlos Brathwaite201608.0062030
Prasidh Krishna3.2043112.9054310
15.2 to S Gopal, holes out to long-off. Not quite full enough to go for the lofted drive, and too close to the body too. Gets it off the outside half of the bat and Gill sprints in from long-off to catch it comfortably. 123/6
Andre Russell3032110.6653200
18.5 to R Parag, oh dear he's out hit-wicket. Short ball and he was moving inside the line to pull it fine, but doesn't connect with the ball. In the follow through his bat hits the top of the stumps. unfortunate end to an impressive innings.. 167/7
Sunil Narine402526.25101100
5.2 to AM Rahane, against the run of play, Narine strikes! Full on middle, Rahane plants his front foot forward and has to play around it as it turn back in a touch, struck him above the knee roll but Rahane chose not to review. 53/1
7.2 to SPD Smith, plays all around a straight one! Straighter one on middle, Smith went back and tried to turn it to the leg side, it was much too full for the stroke, hurried onto him and was through him before he knew it. 63/3
Prithvi Raj2028014.0034110
Piyush Chawla402035.00141100
6.3 to SV Samson, through the gate and Samson goes! Went really wide to deliver that, it was the googly, Samson was already shaping to sweep, got done in by the length, and bowled through the gate. 57/2
10.1 to BA Stokes, Russell's caught it on the boundary Ben Stokes ends a disappointing IPL season. Backed away but Chawla followed him, bowled a wrong un though, and Stokes is looking to heave it over cow corner, gets a toe-end. Russell at long-on times his jump perfectly to hold on, and keeps his balance when landing on the ground so that he doesn't cross the rope. 78/4
12.3 to STR Binny, caught on the deep midwicket boundary Binny hit it really well, but picked out the man with precision. Full and in the slot to slog sweep, he nails it too. Unfortunately for him, doesn't place it well. 98/5
