5.4 to BA Stokes, taken down leg side. Looks like a slower bouncer down leg side. Looks for the pull and is through it too soon. Seems like he only got a glove on that in the end and AB moved nicely to his right to take it. 50/1
15.3 to JC Buttler, taken at mid-off. Morris was brought back for the wicket, and he's got the biggest one. Good length and rising just outside off, was looking to slap this over the infield on the up but ended up slicing it. 127/4
19.2 to SPD Smith, taken at sweeper cover by Shahbaz. He's a very good fielder, and he's pulled off some nice skill to hang on at the boundary. Full ball outside off, shuffles and goes inside-out. He takes some strides to his right, marginally over-runs it but keeps his bearings and then dives to his right and backwards to hold on. they checked to see if he'd landed ball-first on the turf, but there don't seem to be enough close-up angles of that. 173/5
19.6 to JC Archer, appeal for lbw is given out and Jofra reviews right away. Full dipping ball at middle stump, rapped him right in front as he looked to go across that. Inside edge? No, says Ultra Edge. That's smashing leg stump, he was struck right on the toe. That'll remain out and Morris has a fourth. 177/6
7.4 to RV Uthappa, taken at deep midwicket. Tossed up full and slow outside off, makes him reach out with the slog sweep and gets gets under it a bit too much. It's high and not very far. Job done, though, you'd say for Uthappa. And job well done. 69/2
7.5 to SV Samson, taken at long-off. Bring out the same banners, it's Samson gone softly again. Somehow, even after a good start, Rajasthan have managed to be three down with lots of overs to spare. This is poor batting from Samson. It's a good length dipping ball wide outside off. He's stuck halfway between slapping this over extra cover and driving it for a single to long-off. Has only managed to loft it to the fielder after reaching out wide for it. 69/3

Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Aaron Finch, 3.3 ov), 2-102 (Devdutt Padikkal, 12.6 ov), 3-102 (Virat Kohli, 13.1 ov)
3.3 to AJ Finch, taken in the covers. Good bowling from Gopal. Hangs the length ball wide outside off. It's got some overspin on it. Finch is down on a knee trying to slog sweep that, but he's gotten too far away with his leg-side stride and ends up slicing it high. Uthappa takes it at mid-off. 23/1
13.1 to V Kohli, has Tewatia done enough at deep midwicket? Looks like he has. Kohli is walking back. Full ball angled into Kohli from wide of the crease. he uses the angle and brings out the trademark whip off his his shin. It's flat and fast to Tewatia's right. He takes the catch inches from the line. And is about to fall over. But he lobs it back up with his left hand, then gains his balance again and comes back to take it. Third umpire confirms that was all clean. Brilliant footwork so close to the line. That was traveling quickly to his right too. 102/3
12.6 to D Padikkal, dropped slow and short outside off, forces him to try and clear the ground with a pull. Not enough power on that and it's an easy take for Stokes. This isn't too different from the ball Kohli hit for six, except that it's climbing away from a tiring batsman. 102/2
