Jofra Archer402015.00112000
2.6 to F du Plessis, taken at short extra cover. Buttler lunging high to his left. Short and wide bouncer outside off. Faf wants to lift that over point with the pace, but is through the attempted guide a bit too soon. It comes off the inside part of the bat and floats to Buttler's left and he lands softly after jumping to his left. 13/1
Ankit Rajpoot10808.0021000
Kartik Tyagi403518.75117010
3.6 to SR Watson, taken at midwicket! Full and into leg stump with the angle. Watson gets the front leg forward, and flicks aerially, straight into that fielder's lap. It was there to picked off for runs and Watson can't believe it. 26/2
Ben Stokes302709.0042100
Shreyas Gopal401413.50120000
8.2 to SM Curran, taken at long-off. This is smart bowling from a bowler in full control against the batsman. Knew Curran would be itching to step down the track and pushed his googly wide outside off and just short of a good length. Curran is reaching out for it in the end and it's a simple chip for Buttler to hold at long-off. 53/3
Rahul Tewatia401814.50110001
9.6 to AT Rayudu, Samson settles under this top-edge and takes it. Front-of-the-hand quicker one, at a length and in at leg stump. Looks for the sweep and is through it early. It hands in front of short fine and Samson takes it easily with a couple of steps to the left. 56/4

Deepak Chahar411824.50172000
2.6 to BA Stokes, chopped on. More evidence of the slowness in this pitch. Short of a length delivery outside off, angled bat on the cut and it's right off the inside edge. Stokes is audibly annoyed. 26/1
4.3 to SV Samson, taken down leg side and that's three down in the powerplay once more for RR. Must be the fifth time this season. It's a good length ball down leg side, he looks to tickle it fine. Off the inside edge and Dhoni does well to get his left hand under this. As he takes a tumble, the ball wobbles tantalizingly in the glove but he's managed to keep it in. 28/3
Josh Hazlewood401914.75142000
3.2 to RV Uthappa, lobs it for Dhoni who takes easily. Uthappa jumps into the line of this short ball outside off and wants to ramp it to fine leg. Probably not expecting this length. It's up at the chest and he gets it off the high part of the bat, only managing to get it a couple of metres behind Dhoni. 28/2
