Jaydev Unadkat4040010.0076100
Chetan Sakariya403639.0091230
13.2 to AT Rayudu, taken at sweeper cover. Third catch for Parag. Short of a length just outside off, the trademark Rayudu slap on the rise. Aerial and decently connected. But taken just at the line, with a reverse cup above his head. 123/4
13.5 to SK Raina, driven straight to mid-off! Overpitched ball at off stump, there for the taking. But he's punched it waist height to Morris. Very tentative tonight, Raina. 125/5
17.2 to MS Dhoni, taken at extra cover! Sakariya is ecstatic at outfoxing Dhoni. This is an offcutter at a length outside off, Dhoni wants to belt that out of orbit in the leg side. Goes very hard at it, ends up slicing, with one hand coming off the handle. Easy take for Buttler. 147/6
Mustafizur Rahman403719.2591221
3.5 to RD Gaikwad, taken at mid-off. It's been a three-bowler effort to build this pressure and Mustafizur ends up getting Gaikwad's wicket. Short of a length slower ball cutting away from off stump. Walks down at it and wants to pull over mid-on, ends up slicing it high for the fielder. 25/1
Chris Morris403328.25114120
5.4 to F du Plessis, taken at deep point! Short of a length and pushed wide outside off. Faf steps out again and is forced to reach out. Can only manage a slice at that and it's a simple catch in the deep. Faf's done his job in the powerplay. 45/2
18.3 to RA Jadeja, edge as he looks to pull. Pretty obvious sound on that and Royals almost forgot to appeal. Short and across the corridor, looks to drag that into the leg side but that's quick. 163/7
Rahul Tewatia302117.0080200
9.2 to MM Ali, dragged it straight to deep midwicket! Tewatia drops it short at middle stump, it's the one coming out the back of the hand, intended to spin away. Moeen drags it from off stump but can't connect to clear. An easy take for Parag, well inside the boundary. 78/3

Deepak Chahar3032010.6674110
Sam Curran402426.00141200
3.5 to M Vohra, pulls straight to the fielder who was just placed there! Oh boy. He's shaking his head, probably a mixture of anger and embarrassment. Short ball at the body again, another good looking pull. Not timed as well as the previous one. Jadeja had just been placed there and he jogs in to take a simple one. 30/1
5.5 to SV Samson, drags it to mid-on! The slower ball does it. Short of a length and just outside off. Looks for the lofted pull, can't time it because off the revs on it. Ends up slicing it straight to Bravo. 45/2
Shardul Thakur302016.6693020
19.2 to JD Unadkat, picks out Jadeja at sweeper! He holds up four fingers to his team-mates! At least he's keeping count, because I've lost it. Full and wide ball outside off, reaches out and slices it. Jadeja with some strides to the left and a nice little leap to hold it. 143/9
Ravindra Jadeja402827.0092101
11.1 to JC Buttler, squares him up with a beauty! We saw a glimpse of grip and turn during his last over, but that was a very wide ball. This one pitches leg stump, has Buttler deep in the crease and looking to close the face as it rips rapidly past the bat and splits middle and off. A dream dismissal for a left-arm spinner, beautifully executed. 87/3
11.6 to S Dube, that looks plumb. Dube doesn't review it. Just in time. Short of a length outside off, ripping back in and he's missed the line and plays a hurried swish at this. Beaten on the inside edge. Caught on the knee roll, in front of off stump. There's no bat on it. Impact is umpire's call and that is hitting the top of the stumps. Dube's innings dies like it lived - meek. 90/4
Dwayne Bravo302819.3380250
18.6 to R Tewatia, carved to extra cover. Yorker outside off, looks to pounce on this. Hard hands. Loses his shape and it's a simple catch. 137/8
Moeen Ali30732.33110000
12.5 to DA Miller, given out lbw as he sweeps and he's walking right off! That turned away a lot, he might have been saved if he'd reviewed this. Length ball pitching at off, he shuffled slightly for the sweep and copped that on the pad as it turned away. Just in front of off stump/the corridor. We'll have to see the replay, Miller didn't even discuss it with his partner. 92/5
14.1 to R Parag, slog sweep finds deep midwicket! Offbreak at a length outside off, gets low and swings at that. He's been looking for a release shot. But that's the long side of the ground and it's taken a couple of yards inside by Jadeja. 95/6
14.3 to CH Morris, this is a proper capitulation! Morris picks out deep midwicket. He said after the last match that there are those paid to bat, and those paid to slog and he knew he was the latter. Might question that after this. Length ball outside off, goes with the turn, a slog sweep, but that is taken further inside than the one of Parag two balls ago. 95/7
