BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB 
Sandeep Warrier201507.5063000
Tim Southee402917.2594010
19.1 to R Ashwin, back of a length slower all. Ashwin dances down the track and tries to pull. Up in the air, and taken at deep backward square. Words exchanged between Southee and Ashwin and now between Ashwin and Morgan! Karthik gets in between Morgan and Ashwin, and sends him back. Are they chatting about that extra run that Capitals took when the ball hit Pant's arm? Some people don't consider it as "fair play", which is a slippery slope anyway.. 120/7
Lockie Ferguson201025.0061000
4.6 to S Dhawan, slashed to cover-point! It was similar to the previous ball, in that it is short and wide of off. Dhawan looks to play that on the up, like he had in the last ball, but this time lobs that right to the fielder, who is on the edge of the circle. Knight Riders strike early, as Capitals lose their in-form batter. 35/1
12.2 to SPD Smith, wild heave, and pays the price! The slower ball is out, the 143kph delivery is next. Good length outside off but angling into the stumps. Smith looks to clobber one over midwicket, but bottom-edged onto the stumps. 77/3
Varun Chakravarthy402406.0082010
Sunil Narine401824.50101000
6.2 to SS Iyer, sharp turn and drift, and cleaned him up! A classical offspinner's wicket this one. Pitches just outside off and turns back in nicely to hit the off stump, as Iyer is undecided to play off the front or the back foot, and so remains rooted in his crease pretty much. The ball sneaks in between bat and pad, and bang!. 40/2
14.3 to Lalit Yadav, Narine knows that's gone! wrong'un one ball, offbreak next, and Yadav is gone. Full on off stump. Yadav presses forward to nudge it leg side. But the ball turns in, hits him in front of middle, and Narine raises his hand even before he turned around to appeal. Yadav out for duck, Narine gets his second.. 89/5
Venkatesh Iyer402927.2583020
13.5 to SO Hetmyer, holes out and Iyer gets an important wicket. Wide-ish outside off, but not as full as Hetmyer would've wanted. Looks to go over the top, but doesn't have the perfect connection. Straight to long off. 88/4
15.3 to AR Patel, full on middle and leg. Clipped but Lockie Ferguson at midwicket dives to his left to take a sharp catch! It's a low catch infact, and Iyer now has two!. 92/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB 
Anrich Nortje2.201516.4293010
16.5 to SP Narine, slices it to the off side. Back of a length ball. Angling away. Looks to club it over the leg side but the bat's face turns in his hand. Pops up for Axar at cover. 122/6
Axar Patel301304.33100100
Ravichandran Ashwin402416.00101110
11.2 to EJG Morgan, Ashwin gives Morgan a sendoff! As expected. Good length outside off. Looks to punch off the back foot, but it turns away, takes the outside edge, and gobbled up by first slip!. 67/4
Lalit Yadav3035111.6651300
4.3 to VR Iyer, bowled him! That was on a good length on middle and off, and bowled at 98kph too. Iyer misses his flick, as the ball stays relatively low too to crash into middle and off. Capitals sniff one out early, as Knight Riders' in-form opener is gone. 28/1
Avesh Khan301334.3391000
5.5 to RA Tripathi, chipped to Smith at mid-off! Smith runs across a few steps to his left to take that over his head. Change of pace by Avesh, as he presented the full face of the bat. 43/2
14.4 to KD Karthik, chops on the slower ball! Another wicket from this end that comes after a series of dot balls. Good length ball, just outside off. Karthik first shuffles towards leg stump before coming back to his usual position. Tries to run it down to third man, ends up getting the inside edge onto his stumps. DK out for 12.. 96/5
17.6 to TG Southee, twist in the tale? Avesh Khan gets his 50th T20 wicket in style. Fullish outside off. Angling into the stumps. Southee goes for the glory shot with a leg-side slog, but he gets the inside edge instead. Off stump rattled. 126/7
Kagiso Rabada312819.33102201
10.6 to Shubman Gill, back of a length outside off. Gill skips down the ground and looks to break the shackles. Flat-batted straight back, but the slower ball means Gill is through the shot too early. Mistimed, and long on makes no mistake. Wicket maiden!. 67/3
