Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Ajinkya Rahane, 2.5 ov), 2-47 (Jos Buttler, 3.4 ov), 3-53 (Sanju Samson, 5.2 ov), 4-69 (Rahul Tripathi, 8.5 ov), 5-78 (Steven Smith, 10.5 ov), 6-103 (Riyan Parag, 14.6 ov), 7-126 (Ben Stokes, 18.2 ov)
2.5 to AM Rahane, Dhoni has reviewed the lbw appeal and based on the TV timer, it's a second late seemed to me like it was a second after the timer had hit zero. But it stands, say the umpires.. He wasn't convinced and the bowler talked him into it. Rahane was looking to flick this length ball over the leg side and was struck on the knee flap in front of middle and leg. Not a big stride...and it's hitting leg stump! Middle of leg stump. That kept a little low and it was a good call to review it. Rahane is gone. 31/1
18.2 to BA Stokes, castled him Chahar continues to show he can bowl at the death too, he's not a one-trick, only Powerplay pony. Knuckle ball from around the wicket, on a length on the stumps. Stokes gave himself room and was looking for the big heave over cow corner. He misses, Chahar hits.. 126/7
5.2 to SV Samson, taken at deep midwicket! On the third attempt by substitute fielder Dhruv Shorey! Huge wicket for Super Kings. Royals not used to all-out attacking, which takes some time to implement. Santner is rewarded for that slow pace again. Leg stump line, at a length. Wants to sweep but he's not to the pitch of it. Gets big on him and it pings off the top edge. Ball bounces off Shorey's body a couple of times as he tries to lose the momentum from the sprint and get his hands in order. Holds on and breathes easy at the end. 53/3
3.4 to JC Buttler, taken by extra cover! Buttler loses his shape and skies an easy one for Rayudu! Thakur wins the battle. Short of a length ball, he gets on the back foot and looks to punch it aerially, but it seems he's too early on it and ends up getting a little under it. Was looking good, had 12 in the over, he won't be pleased with the way he's gone. 47/2
14.6 to R Parag, length ball outside off, bounced a bit more than he expected. Went for the cut off the back foot but ends up getting a thick edge that Dhoni pouches easily.. 103/6
8.5 to RA Tripathi, taken at backward point! Jadhav times his jump expertly there! Length and dipping this time as Tripathi looks to hit the same shot again, inside-out. He's not to the pitch, gets a thick edge. Jadhav leaps to get his right hand on this, then recovers to hold on. 69/4
10.5 to SPD Smith, swept straight to deep midwicket this 'attack attack' policy is good in theory, but Royals haven't executed it well enough. This was full enough to slog-sweep, and Smith connected well too, but hit it straight down the throat of the fielder. 78/5

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Shane Watson, 0.4 ov), 2-5 (Suresh Raina, 1.5 ov), 3-15 (Faf du Plessis, 3.6 ov), 4-24 (Kedar Jadhav, 5.5 ov), 5-119 (Ambati Rayudu, 17.4 ov), 6-144 (MS Dhoni, 19.3 ov)
0.4 to SR Watson, got him! Dream ball from Kulkarni! Outswinger - not a big one, just enough to beat the bat as Watson looks to flick this from a middle and leg line. Climbs up and tonks middle. Watson completely out of shape. 0/1
3.6 to F du Plessis, picks out the fielder at deep midwicket! Spotted Samson asking Tripathi to move to his left after he'd pulled off that sliding stop a couple balls ago. And Faf has ended up hitting it straight there. Short of a length on middle stump, gets everything into this pull. It's not a small ground. Tripathi stays still and this dips on him. He takes it very very low in front of his eyes in the end. Not the ideal technique, but it's a good grab. Finally some joy for Unadkat. They've given him something following the short break, and he's given them good returns tonight. 15/3
5.5 to KM Jadhav, get out of here Stokes you beauty! Leaps, flies, stretches...I don't know what he does, but he has plucked this to his left with two hands at backward point! Unreal. This cut shot was travelling and he had milliseconds to time the dive, let alone getting his hands around it. Pure reflex. Short ball in the channel and Jadhav was cutting from under it as it got big on him. Archer's pace supported that shot though. Kept his shape too as he came down to the floor to hold on. 24/4
17.4 to AT Rayudu, brilliant catch by Shreyas running back at square leg Stokes continues with the short ball, Rayudu down the track and tries to swat it, cramped for room a bit and gets a top edge. Shreyas runs back, almost too far from the ball but holds on to it to his left. 119/5
19.3 to MS Dhoni, yorked him Stokes nails the perfect ball at the right time. Tails in between bat and leg to shatter the stumps. Dhoni was looking to give himself room. 144/6
