Deepak Chahar4047011.7545220
Sam Curran402626.5093000
13.6 to EJG Morgan, and there is a wicket at the wrong end. It is Tripathi who should be getting out from KKR's point of view. Instead it is Morgan gone off a really good sharp bouncer. It is angled into the body and over his right shoulder and takes the glove on the way through to Dhoni. 114/4
18.6 to KD Karthik, wide, short of a length, Karthik tries to go for the upper-cut, but the lack of pace means he can't time it well. Caught at square third man by Thakur, but not on the first attempt. 162/7
Shardul Thakur402827.00133120
4.2 to Shubman Gill, Thakur gets Gill a third time in three innings. Looks to slog at a length ball while he has been picking the singles so well till now. Perhaps just saw a length ball and went after it, which is fair enough. Thakur has bowled it cross-seam, and it seems to have hit the smooth leather and skidded on, taking the bottom edge. 37/1
15.2 to AD Russell, huge wicket. Russell clears the front leg to slog to leg, but Thakur has been superb. Unerring with his length. Short of a length, cross-seam, lands on the seam, bounces, and takes the top edge through to Dhoni. 128/5
Karn Sharma402526.2550100
8.1 to N Rana, big slog-sweep, but it hangs in the air for a catch at long-on. Just not full enough even though Rana is going with the turn. Just not close enough to the pitch of the ball to nail this. 70/2
10.6 to SP Narine, Jadeja and du Plessis combine for a superb catch. Narine continues with his job of slogging these middle overs. He seems to have placed this between long-on and deep midwicket, but Jadeja makes the ground to his right and makes the dive to catch it. He doesn't quite need to do it, but he relays the catch to du Plessis because the boundary skirting is not too far from him. 98/3
Dwayne Bravo403739.2583120
16.5 to RA Tripathi, catch or a bump ball?. It is a near yorker steered straight to short third man. We go to the third man. The soft signal is out. It bounces short of the bat, and goes off the toe end for a clean catch to short third man. A fair effort by Tripathi, who did his usual Powerplay slogging before selflessly hitting out post PP. Not his fault that Morgan and Russell got out at the other end. 140/6
19.2 to KL Nagarkoti, slower ball now, and Nagarkoti mis-times this to mid-off for a catch. At least that bring Cummins to the strike. 163/8
19.5 to Shivam Mavi, and that glove off nearly brings a drop. Mavi gets a big edge to a wide slower ball, the edge flies to Dhoni's right, who sticks out the ungloved hand, and the ball lobs off away towards short third man. Dhoni runs off, puts a dive in, and takes the rebound. 166/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Pat Cummins402506.25113020
Shivam Mavi3032110.6634100
3.4 to F du Plessis, big big wicket. Mavi persisted with despite match-ups calling for Narine. And I don't think Mavi has done anything differently here. This is just one of those T20 things. You bowl the same delivery, and the batsmen plays vastly different shots. Mavi stays short of a length, widish, and du Plessis gives him too much room this time, and edges through to Karthik. 30/1
Varun Chakravarthy402817.0073000
16.3 to MS Dhoni, and hello, the youngster has taken Dhoni down. He sticks to his guns. Flights up a length-ball legcutter. Dhoni opens up the front leg to slog-sweep him, but the ball doesn't turn away. Just goes on with the angle to knock back the middle stump. 129/4
Kamlesh Nagarkoti302117.0063000
12.1 to AT Rayudu, wow the bowling change works. What do I know about cricket? Rayudu has found long-on with pinpoint precision. Short of a length, not much remarkable about the delivery except that Rayudu decided to pull in the air. Long-on says thank you very much. 99/2
Sunil Narine403117.7593100
13.1 to SR Watson, He has given him. Seems going down leg to me. They go upstairs. Beaten in flight completely. He is trying to pull a ball this is just short of a length, and also skids through. It pitches on off, doesn't turn much, and is this is a carrom ball? It is a front-of-the-hand ball for sure. So it sort of holds its line against the angle, and that means it is clipping leg. Huge wicket. Make that nine dismissals for around 90 runs for Narine v Watson. 101/3
Andre Russell201819.0052100
17.1 to SM Curran, can he ever? Can he ever? Back of a length, no room, Curran wants to go over mid-off, but ends up hitting him straight to extra cover. 129/5
