1.5 to Shubman Gill, that is a bit of a nothing dismissal. Short of a length, just outside off, and he punches at it but neither is he looking to go over the infield nor bothers to keep it down. Caught at backward point. And today was a day when Gill looked in good touch. 11/1
5.4 to RA Tripathi, too quick for Tripathi. Yorker at 148.3ks with a new ball. This is high-quality bowling. Not very high-quality batting, though, as his feet are away, and his bat comes down late. Middle stump and off stump knocked back. 35/2
Kagiso Rabada403328.25103120
7.2 to KD Karthik, and Karthik has been sacrificed again. He has been doing well in the second half of the innings, but KKR continue to send him in early. Not a great shot. Looks to work to leg a length ball pitched outside off, and it holds its line to take the edge through to Pant. 42/3
16.4 to SP Narine, big boundary and Rabada gets his man. He digs this in short, cramps Narine up by following him, meaning the short off boundary is taken out of play. He pulls, makes a decent connection, but not decent enough to clear the big square-leg boundary. Caught, but has he played a match-turning, a season-turning knock here?. 157/4
Axar Patel10707.0031000
Marcus Stoinis4041210.2596120
19.5 to N Rana, short, outside off, gets it high, and Rana has fallen to a short ball that has got big. Who would have thought? Except that it has happened in the last over of the innings and not the first. Top edge for a catch inside the circle. A very important hand in an emotional time for Rana. 194/5
19.6 to EJG Morgan, another wide bouncer, another high ball, and another top edge. Rabada runs back from short fine leg to take the catch. A good last over from Stoinis given what had happened earlier. 194/6

Pat Cummins401734.25163000
0.1 to AM Rahane, plumb lbw first ball. Wickets have been few and far between for Cummins, but he has struck immediately here. Full ball, the seam is not perfectly upright, but it pitches outside off and jags back in to beat Rahane's defensive prod. Dead in front. 0/1
2.3 to S Dhawan, like the London buses. And it tells you the old thing about bowling: you keep bowling well for long enough, and the wickets will come. And if they come after a long interval, they will come in clutches. Lovely ball to get the form man. On a length, angling in towards middle, then holding its line against the angle and uprooting the off stump. Dhawan likes to stay legside of the ball anyway. At 147.4ks too. 13/2
18.5 to K Rabada, length ball, into the pads, and Cummins has got another wicket. Not the best ball to get a wicket with but he has bowled quite a few good ones in the previous games for no rewards in the last column. This has been hit straight down the throat of long-on. 132/8
Prasidh Krishna201909.5041112
Kamlesh Nagarkoti201105.5072000
Lockie Ferguson403017.5084000
19.5 to TU Deshpande, and a length ball produces another catch at long-on. This is just a languid hit, which he has timed well enough to carry it all the way to the fence. DC could still be bowled out. 135/9
Sunil Narine403709.2540210
Varun Chakravarthy402055.0091010
11.2 to RR Pant, caught on the long leg-side boundary. And not even the boundary. Well inside. Varun bowls the wrong'un, full, outside leg, and Pant plays the kinda vertical sweep that he does. The top edge is taken at deep square leg. 76/3
13.2 to SO Hetmyer, but Varun gets the other big hitter. Seems like wrong'un, Hetmyer sees it in is swinging arc, clears the front leg and tries to go over long-on. The top edge only carries as far as the boundary edge where he is caught smartly. 95/4
13.3 to SS Iyer, and he is on a hat-trick. That earlier drop has not cost them anything. Lovely carrom-ball legcutter, on a length, outside off. Iyer likes the length and wants to go over long-on, but there is a puff of dust where the ball pitches, and the ball turns away from it. He toe-ends a skier to long-on. 95/5
15.1 to MP Stoinis, No. 4 for Varu. The legcutter is turning enough to do the DC hitters in. And none of them is looking to hit with the turn. All four have perished hitting to leg with the ball turning away from them. Another big outer edge as the ball turns away from him. Taken easily at long-off. 110/6
15.5 to AR Patel, that's the five-for. The wrong'un this time. Hits the top of off. The first five-for for KKR since Narine did it in 2012. Seems like Axar has picked the wrong'un and is looking to make room and hit it over the off side, but he has been done in completely by the flight first and then the turn. the first five-for of this IPL. 112/7
