12.2 to RD Gaikwad, hauled to deep midwicket, where Cummins takes it. He slog-sweeps it in the air, the outfielder runs in, slides on his knees, and snaffles it. Raina gives the outgoing Gaikwad a high-five. Pushed through outside off, Gaikwad gets hold of the slog, but can't clear Cummins. 115/1
16.3 to MM Ali, four, six, and out! Moeen ventures down the track and swings hard to the leg side again. Narine pulls his length back and brings this back into the left-hander. He misses, DK gathers it and takes the bails off. End of a charming cameo from Moeen. 165/2
18.6 to MS Dhoni, scythed flat and hard. Morgan swoops to his left and pulls off an outstanding catch. Wide yorker from Russell, Dhoni reaches out for the ball, hits it hard, and holes out for 17 off 8 balls. 15 off the over, though. 201/3

TOTAL19.1 Ov (RR: 10.53)202
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Shubman Gill, 0.4 ov), 2-17 (Nitish Rana, 2.5 ov), 3-27 (Eoin Morgan, 4.3 ov), 4-31 (Sunil Narine, 4.6 ov), 5-31 (Rahul Tripathi, 5.2 ov), 6-112 (Andre Russell, 11.2 ov), 7-146 (Dinesh Karthik, 14.6 ov), 8-176 (Kamlesh Nagarkoti, 16.2 ov), 9-200 (Varun Chakravarthy, 18.3 ov), 10-202 (Prasidh Krishna, 19.1 ov)
0.4 to Shubman Gill, slashed straight to deep third man. Short and wide of off, Gill chucks his hands at the ball and holes out to Ngidi who takes a couple of steps forward and snaffles it. Gill goes for a golden duck. 1/1
2.5 to N Rana, Ngidi runs in from long leg. Dhoni runs across to his left and settles under this skier near the square-leg region. He takes it after a brief stumble. This was on a length and swinging into the pads. Instead of putting it away to the fence, Rana skews it in the air off a leading edge and gives his wicket away. 17/2
4.3 to EJG Morgan, Chahar comes back and has Morgan nicking off. He celebrates it with a big roar. Nicely pitched up, angling away and swinging away outside off. Morgan flashes a drive and edges behind to Dhoni. 27/3
4.6 to SP Narine, Jadeja springs into the action. He throws himself to his right from short cover and makes this catch look ridiculously easy. This why Chahar wants 11 Jadejas in the field. Chahar immediately drags his length back and adjusts his line. He targets the stumps, Narine makes some swinging room and slaps it to Jadeja. 31/4
11.2 to AD Russell, Sam Curran: Makes things happen! Russell leaves it and gives Curran free access to his leg stump. Russell was thinking Curran would go full and wide like Thakur did last over. However, he hits a back of a length, Russell swerves outside off, doesn't offer a shot, and is castled. Or maybe Russell was thinking it would slant down the leg side. Anyway, smart stuff from Curran. 112/6
5.2 to RA Tripathi, KKR are five down and sinking. Banged in short and keeps coming back into Tripathi with the sharp angle from over the wicket. Too close to the body for the late cut/attempted ramp. Tripathi leans back and simply guides it into the gloves of Dhoni. 31/5
14.6 to KD Karthik, Ngidi is showcasing his variations. He traps DK lbw, the batter calls for a review. DK uses his feet, Ngidi slips in the big dipper. This is a low full-toss straight out of the Bravo playbook. Pings the back leg and this is crashing into leg stump. DK has to go. 146/7
16.2 to KL Nagarkoti, The South African pair combine to get rid of Nagarkoti. Du Plessis dives forward and takes it. Back of a length on middle, Ngidi hits the hard length once again. The line is on middle. The bat-face turns on impact as Nagarkoti holes out for a duck. 176/8
