Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Faf du Plessis, 2.4 ov), 2-39 (Ruturaj Gaikwad, 4.4 ov), 3-59 (Moeen Ali, 7.4 ov), 4-62 (Robin Uthappa, 8.3 ov), 5-132 (MS Dhoni, 19.1 ov)
4.4 to RD Gaikwad, back of a length, outside off. Tries to drag an pull from way outside off. Sliced in the air, and Ashwin tracks back from midwicket for an easy catch. Both openers gone Nortje using his pace well here. 39/2
19.1 to MS Dhoni, bottom edge, and taken behind! Looks to pull this back of a length ball outside off, and Dhoni plays without any foot movement while staying deep in his crease to this 141kph ball. The ball also doesn't quite bounce as much as Dhoni would have expected, and Avesh sends back the opposition captain. 132/5
2.4 to F du Plessis, partnership breaker as du Plessis holes out at deep midwicket - the lone fielder in the deep on the on side. Length ball, skidding in. He looks to pull it square, but ends up hitting it in front of square instead of behind. Iyer with the diving effort in the deep. 28/1
7.4 to MM Ali, soft dismissal. Full on leg stump. Moeen looks to flick it over deep midwicket for six but doesn't go through with the shot at 100% power. A half-hearted attempt, and Iyer won't drop those on the boundary line. Axar continues to make heads turn with his bowling all season. 59/3
8.3 to RV Uthappa, CSK are officially in trouble! Its the carrom ball. Full on middle. Uthappa strides forward to hammer a six over wide long on, but the shot goes right up in the air instead. Ashwin calls for the catch, and then keeps his eyes on the prize as the ball returns back to Earth after going very high up. Time out. 62/4

TOTAL19.4 Ov (RR: 7.06)139/7
Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Prithvi Shaw, 2.3 ov), 2-51 (Shreyas Iyer, 5.5 ov), 3-71 (Rishabh Pant, 8.5 ov), 4-93 (Ripal Patel, 12.5 ov), 5-98 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 14.1 ov), 6-99 (Shikhar Dhawan, 14.6 ov), 7-135 (Axar Patel, 19.3 ov)
2.3 to PP Shaw, sixth time he's dismissed Shaw as the batter can't get it over the infield. Short of a length outside off. A bit of extra bounce. Shaw wants to hit it over cover but it's a wrong choice for that length. Sliced, and Faf runs backwards from mid off to lap it up. 24/1
5.5 to SS Iyer, sliced and done. Length ball outside off but extra bounce gets big on Iyer. Wants to check a pull to midwicket, but he's in no position to pull it off. The ball is flayed to cover instead. 51/2
8.5 to RR Pant, one shot too many? Moeen at point gobbles it up. Full on middle, and he looks to hammer another slog sweep. However, its a faster ball, and Pant has sliced it in the air. Pant's bat-change does not work. 71/3
12.5 to RV Patel, finds long-on with his heave! That ball was in the slot on a full length on middle and off, and he stands on leg to play that away from his body. Gets the height with his loft, but lands that right where Chahar stood waiting. Another blow for Capitals. 93/4
14.1 to R Ashwin, crashes into his off stump after flicking his pad! Bowls it full on middle, and with a scrambled seam. Ashwin looks to flick that across the line, but is beaten, as the ball hits his back pad before hitting the woodwork behind. So the experiment to promote Ashwin doesn't work. 98/5
14.6 to S Dhawan, but Dhawan departs in this over anyway! Chips that to cover, and that is a soft dismissal. A little skip from Moeen at cover, and that sends back a set batter. Dhawan opens the bat face to try and slice that full delivery just outside off, but is not able to get that over the fielder. 99/6
19.3 to AR Patel, nabbed at cover! Axar is left frustrated. Slower ball which takes almost ages to come on a full length just outside off, and he chips that to Moeen standing closer in at cover after opening the face of the bat. Some late drama here?. 135/7
