Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Rahul Tripathi, 1.3 ov), 2-3 (Nitish Rana, 1.4 ov), 3-3 (Shubman Gill, 2.2 ov), 4-14 (Tom Banton, 3.3 ov), 5-32 (Dinesh Karthik, 8.4 ov), 6-40 (Pat Cummins, 12.3 ov), 7-57 (Eoin Morgan, 15.4 ov), 8-84 (Kuldeep Yadav, 19.6 ov)
1.3 to RA Tripathi, they have strangled Tripathi. He has been given no width at all all innings. This is short of a length, just outside off, and he can only push at it with an open face. The ball swings to take the edge. 3/1
1.4 to N Rana, Bluffmaster. Siraj has bluffed Rana. He has shown him the field for a bouncer, and slipped in the full swinging ball to knock him over. Rana's feet are stuck behind, he makes no attempt to get in line, and the ball swings back to make its way through the big gate. 3/2
3.3 to T Banton, Siraj on an absolute roll. Repeat of 2017 anyone? On a length, scrambled seam, and I am not sure this has moved away after pitching. Seems like Banton has just driven inside the line to edge it through to the keeper. 14/4
2.2 to Shubman Gill, and on a night when KKR need Gill to be circumspect, he plays an ambitious shot to make it nothing for 3. Gill is having a horror season: slow when quick runs are needed, reckless when you need to rebuild. This is short, outside off, and he plays the pull, only to top-edge it to midwicket. 3/3
8.4 to KD Karthik, big appeal for lbw but this is headed down leg according to the umpire, and me. But Kohli reviews it with one second to go. This is the wrong'un, Karthik defends for the legbreak, but it turns the other way ever so slightly. And RCB and Chahal have got it spot on. This pitches on middle, doesn't turn too much, just enough to beat his inside edge and it is going on to hit the leg stump. 32/5
12.3 to PJ Cummins, Chahal is so good at teasing them out. Cummins has been tied up for so long that he throws his arms at the first ball tossed up. Chahal is a wily bowler. Not only does he toss this up over his eyeline, he bowls it wide of his reach. All Cummins manages to do is hole out to long-off. 40/6
15.4 to EJG Morgan, and Morgan perishes. I think the lure is the short boundary, but Sundar doesn't give him the length to pepper it. Morgan goes deep into the crease to try to pull this short-of-a-length ball, and gets no power into it because it is not short enough. Caught at deep midwicket. 57/7

6.2 to AJ Finch, and Ferguson produces the wicket immediately. These things always happen just to show up your captaincy even further. The extra pace from Ferguson, Finch stays back to a length ball, and it holds its line to take the edge. 46/1
