Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Shubman Gill, 0.6 ov), 2-50 (Venkatesh Iyer, 5.1 ov), 3-70 (Eoin Morgan, 9.1 ov), 4-89 (Rahul Tripathi, 12.2 ov), 5-125 (Andre Russell, 16.4 ov), 6-166 (Dinesh Karthik, 19.4 ov)
9.1 to EJG Morgan, du Plessis completes a tight catch at the long-on fence! He hsa taken the catch, but knows that the boundary line is just behind him. So he pops the ball back and goes inside the rope. And by the time he is out again, there is enough time for him to complete that take easily. That was coming high and quick to him, as Morgan slapped that good length ball on middle after coming down and making room. Another low score for Morgan. 70/3
19.4 to KD Karthik, gone this time? It's a yorker, and he was looking to run it down towards third man. Collected by Dhoni. It's an umpire's review, but does look out at first glance. Possibly an intended drive to a full ball, with an open face of the bat, but just off the edge.. 166/6
5.1 to VR Iyer, and Iyer edges behind first ball! But he reviews belatedly. More drama, as if what we have had so far wasn't enough. Iyer goes flashing at that full delivery wide of off, as he plays with foot movement and away from his body. There is a clear edge, as UltraEdge confirms, and Iyer has to finally walk back. 50/2
16.4 to AD Russell, gone! Dre Russ is Lord Shardul's latest exploit. It's not a great shot, to be perfectly honest. It's a length ball, just around off, and possibly a subtle change of pace. Russell has wound himself into action and then looked to spank this over midwicket. Just gets the inside edge, and on to the stumps. Quietly makes his way off. That could save Chennai some 20-25 runs right there, you never know.... 125/5
12.2 to RA Tripathi, speared in quickly, and Tripathi seems to have pre-meditated a reverse sweep. More of a swipe in the end, as he realises the ball is far too full for that shot. Ends up very late on that, as it crashes into the base of off-stump. Just reward for what has been a spell of very clever bowling from Jadeja. 89/4

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-74 (Ruturaj Gaikwad, 8.2 ov), 2-102 (Faf du Plessis, 11.3 ov), 3-119 (Ambati Rayudu, 14.2 ov), 4-138 (Moeen Ali, 16.4 ov), 5-142 (Suresh Raina, 17.1 ov), 6-142 (MS Dhoni, 17.3 ov), 7-168 (Sam Curran, 19.1 ov), 8-171 (Ravindra Jadeja, 19.5 ov)
11.3 to F du Plessis, short, slashed, and straight to deep point. Lockie Ferguson seems to have overrun it a bit, and looking into the sun, but has done well to adjust and take it behind him to his right. 102/2
16.4 to MM Ali, short, slapped down towards long on. Venkatesh Iyer is right by the boundary, and does well to ensure he stays well inside. Another twist in the tale?. 138/4
17.3 to MS Dhoni, he dares! He perishes! Similar length, but this was the one that goes the other way. Tosses it up a touch. Dhoni this time has no option, with the mounting equation, but to go for a big, booming drive. That leaves a substantial gap between bat and pad, and that's exactly where the ball has gone through. 142/6
14.2 to AT Rayudu, timber this time! Rayudu with another ambitious skip down the wicket. Has ended up missing a length ball just outside off. Spins back just enough to come back in and tickle off. Welcome wicket for Kolkata at this stage. 119/3
19.1 to SM Curran, Curran skips down the track, and looks to clear long off, but he cannot do that. Substitute Kamlesh Nagarkoti dives low to his right and picks it off. No celebration, understandably. 168/7
19.5 to RA Jadeja, straighter ball, and he looks to sweep this. Given out leg before! Jadeja reviews. May have just got him outside off. Though it might stay on umpire's call. Dot ball in any case. It reveals umpire's call on impact. So Jadeja will have to go back. Super Over, anybody?. 171/8
8.2 to RD Gaikwad, leading edge popped to cover! Looks to flick this good length ball on middle, but perhaps plays that too early. The ball was again coming into him, and had good bounce too. Morgan leaps on grabbing at that, as Russell roars out after this much-needed wicket for Knight Riders. 74/1
