Harry Gurney4042110.5084230
19.6 to V Kohli, length, and he has flicked this towards deep midwicket, where Shubman Gill comepletes the catch. 213/4
Sunil Narine403218.0062110
3.2 to PA Patel, juggled and caught by deep square leg. Tossed up a bit, and it dipped on Parthiv, who wanted to go for the legside swipe. Only gets a toe-end that sends the ball swirling into the air. Rana runs to his right from deep square leg and holds on after juggling it a bit.. 18/1
Prasidh Krishna4052013.0057200
Andre Russell301715.6680100
8.5 to AD Nath, that is that. The Nath experiment hasn't worked at all. Nath skies it in the air off a leading edge, trying to pick it up off his legs, it goes straight up in the silly point region. Russell seems to be settling under it but Uthappa is charging in from short cover too and snaffles it right from under Russell's nose almost. Luckily no collision with Uthappa showing some nimble footwork. Smiles all around from KKR. 59/2
Kuldeep Yadav4059114.7565510
15.6 to MM Ali, it has worked! Slides a slower ball, tossed up invitingly, across him, and Moeen takes the bait and goes for another big hit, but gets the top edge. It's Prasidh Krishna who grabs on, and Kolkata get a big break. What a knock from Moeen Ali, though!. 149/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Dale Steyn4040210.00125200
0.6 to CA Lynn, Steyn has got his man this time. That seemed to come slower off the pitch, though not sure if it was a slower ball by Steyn. Lynn pushed at it too early, and pops a simple catch to mid-off. Steyn is pumped, and the comeback does have a wicket in his first over, even if a wicket off the first ball was missed. 6/1
4.6 to Shubman Gill, Kohli almost clangs it but holds on at the second attempt Gill hasn't looked comfortable during his stay, this is a yorker length ball outside off, he wants to drive it through the offside, but ends up toe-ending it. Flies towards mid-off, and it looks like it might be going over Kohli, but he sticks out a hand over his head and grabs the ball. Not cleanly and it bounces out, but he does well with great presence of mind to hold on to it near his waist. 33/3
Navdeep Saini403117.75123200
3.5 to SP Narine, and Narine's iffy stay ends with a short ball. Saini dug this in short, got it to rise up to his face. Narine with his front leg cleared, wanted to swat it towards midwicket, but he's too late on the ball and has taken his eyes off it too. Gets a top edge that loops up and settles into Parthiv's gloves. 24/2
Mohammed Siraj403809.50135130
Marcus Stoinis403218.00131310
11.5 to RV Uthappa, length, and he has picked this up, swung it towards backward square leg, where the catch is completed! Might have been a change of pace, scrambled seam in fact, and he ended up getting more of the edge of the bat. The intent was right, but he's been put out of his pain. 79/4
