Jofra Archer402626.50133100
0.6 to Mandeep Singh, sensational bowling and an equally sensational catch. We have said it so many times about Stokes. This is Test-match stuff. Bouncer, straight at his badge. And his eyes look away as he throws his bat up in self defence. The ball lobs up towards point but it looks like it will fall short, but Stokes charges in and puts in a full-length dive to catch it. 1/1
19.4 to CH Gayle, emotion from Gayle. He has missed out on a hundred. What a seed from Archer. Yorker on leg. Maybe just six inches short of one. It goes past the inside edge, hits the pad, and ricochets into the wicket. Gayle is looking to kick the ground with his bat but loses control and the bat flies towards midwicket. And then a nice tough. He forgets the bat, and shakes Archer's hand. Gayle walks back with the helmet on the top of his bat handle. The only man with two 99s in the IPL. 184/4

Ben Stokes403228.0062130
14.4 to KL Rahul, Rahul has struggled to time the ball all night. It shows you the pitch is not easy. He rarely fails on the slog to a length ball. Bowled at 129ks, so seams like an on-pace ball because his slower ones have hovered around 110. Rahul doesn't get any power into the slow, and holes out to deep midwicket. Replays show this is the split-finger slower ball so he has really outfoxed Rahul. 121/2
17.6 to N Pooran, Tewatia with another smart boundary catch. He has been so safe on the fens this year. Slower ball, short, around off, and Pooran takes on the short boundary. Tewatia leaps a little to take this overhead. Right at the edge of the boundary. 162/3

Murugan Ashwin4043110.7572400
10.5 to RV Uthappa, this is slower than the last ball, and gives him slightly less room to swing his arms. Uthappa still gets a lot of the slog-sweep, but not enough. Pooran takes the catch at deep midwicket. Just feet inside the fence. 111/2
Chris Jordan3.3044112.5763320
5.3 to BA Stokes, Stokes makes room to try to go over mid-off again, but Jordan is full so he gets too close to the ball. Doesn't get the elevation he wants. Finds mid-off. What relief for KXIP. What a fiery knock from Stokes to go with his bowling effort. 60/1
