Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Nitish Rana, 0.2 ov), 2-73 (Shubman Gill, 8.3 ov), 3-74 (Sunil Narine, 8.6 ov), 4-94 (Rahul Tripathi, 11.6 ov), 5-99 (Dinesh Karthik, 12.3 ov), 6-144 (Andre Russell, 15.3 ov), 7-184 (Pat Cummins, 19.2 ov)
0.2 to N Rana, golden duck for Rana. Oh hang on. He has reviewed with one second to go. That is strange. This is not an lbw decision, but a catch at the wicket. It shouldn't take you 14 seconds to make up your mind on these. Archer has dug this in short, gets it chest high, and the Snicko shows there is a scratch as this goes past his fend. Rana, and the review, both gone. 1/1
11.6 to RA Tripathi, nice catch by Uthappa, running to his left from long-on and taking this high by his head and while still running. Tripathi looks to pull this skiddy delivery, and gets a sort of top edge. 94/4
8.3 to Shubman Gill, top edge on the slog sweep, and Buttler is under it. You can start walking. This is a length ball, pretty straight, and hasn't turned. Still Gill doesn't get all of the slog sweep, and deep midwicket does the rest. 73/2
8.6 to SP Narine, Narine tries to hit a six second ball. He clears the front leg to try to go over long-on, and skies this slider for Stokes to take at wide long-on. Not a bad move, not bad intent, but the result is a two-ball duck. 74/3
12.3 to KD Karthik, the big wicket. Karthik plays for the turn, Tewatia has bowled a straighter one, and the inside edge goes to short midwicket. This is when you pay for those monstrous edges. This is an inside edge, and he is just pushing at it, but it has carried all the way to short midwicket. 99/5
15.3 to AD Russell, big grunt from Russell as he has found deep cover to perfection. Tyagi misses the wide yorker by a foot or so, which means Russell sees a six over cover, but ends up hitting this straight to the man. He is really upset with himself. 144/6
19.2 to PJ Cummins, full and wide, out of his reach, Cummins drives, gets the edge, and Samson takes it. Not only is this a dot, Morgan is still off strike. 184/7

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.55)131/9
Fall of wickets: 1-19 (Robin Uthappa, 0.6 ov), 2-27 (Ben Stokes, 2.1 ov), 3-32 (Steven Smith, 2.6 ov), 4-32 (Sanju Samson, 3.3 ov), 5-37 (Riyan Parag, 4.6 ov), 6-80 (Jos Buttler, 10.4 ov), 7-105 (Rahul Tewatia, 14.4 ov), 8-125 (Jofra Archer, 17.3 ov), 9-129 (Kartik Tyagi, 18.3 ov)
0.6 to RV Uthappa, and what cricket. Every match should be played with an eye on NRR. Just big hits and wickets. Uthappa plays the pick-up shot again to a full ball, but this time he is dragging it from outside off, which means he needs more power. He hasn't imparted it, and he has found the man at deep backward square leg. 19/1
2.1 to BA Stokes, oh a flying Karthik spotted. Stokes gets a slot ball, goes for the bog drive, gets a think edge, Karthik is wrong-footed and has to dive to his left. He goes full-length, and the ball sticks in the left webbing. And he does well to bring the right hand around as his elbow hits the ground. 27/2
2.6 to SPD Smith, oh the adrenalin is flowing. Cummins gets his former captain. Again he nearly beats the inside edge of the shuffling Smith. The last time the inside edge saved him from a dead lbw. This time it drags the ball from outside off to top the of the leg stump. 32/3
4.6 to R Parag, and the third over does the trick. He might not have got Buttler but he has got another wicket. Short ball, at his body, no room. Parag tries to get inside the line to help it to leg, but he is late on it, and Karthik takes the catch. 37/5
3.3 to SV Samson, Mavi into it. Get in, KKR. This is a huge wicket. McCullum said earlier the ball will move around. Tripathi said it seamed around early. And this one moves off the surface just enough to take the edge. This is on a length, Samson looks to drive on the up, and edges it through. 32/4
18.3 to Kartik Tyagi, takes this on the rebound. This is a big wicket for KKR's overall chances. Tyagi has chipped a full ball back at him, he sticks out his right hand, onto the shoulder, and then into the chest and then his hands. 129/9
10.4 to JC Buttler, huge wicket. Buttler is gone. And now KKR can look for the big margin. Legcutter, bowled fast, Buttler gets the length to pull but this one skids on hurries him into the shot. He has found deep midwicket to perfection. 80/6
14.4 to R Tewatia, Varun keeps on delivering. Tewatia has to go for it as the asking rate keeps climbing. He looks for the big sweep, but has been done in by the wrong'un. The top edge settles with Karthik. 105/7
17.3 to JC Archer, Archer looks for another golf-swing six, and ends up toe-ending it. In the slot all right, but Archer is slightly early into it. Caught at long-on. 125/8
