Fabian Allen403809.5053200
Mohammed Shami402315.75102010
15.5 to EJG Morgan, plumb! Overpitched on leg stump. Morgan moves to the off side to flick behind square. He misses, hits the boot, and that's out!. 124/4
Arshdeep Singh403238.00102120
2.2 to Shubman Gill, crashes into his stumps! A lovely left-armer's dismissal. Full delivery on off, with a faint movement into the batter, who is early into his drive. The ball takes a little inside edge again - as Gill had got against Shami last over - as it strikes middle and off to leave Knight Riders one down early. Good seam position from Arshdeep too, and an early wicket for him. 18/1
17.4 to N Rana, six? No! Slower ball. Length delivery angling in, and he looks to pull over deep midwicket. Mistimed, in the air, Mayank in the deep reverse cups the catch on the boundary line. A little better timing and that was another six. For now, a useful cameo ends. 149/5
19.6 to KD Karthik, middle stump knocked back! Yorker on middle. DK goes across to the off side to play a sweep fine. But he misses, and the zing bails have lit up. Knight Riders finish on 165 for 7. 165/7
Nathan Ellis4046011.5046110
Ravi Bishnoi402225.5092000
11.3 to RA Tripathi, Hooda gets that and the partnership ends. Bishnoi the partnership breaker as this googly is mistimed in the air. Tripathi tried to slog sweep, and it went aerial to long on. 90/2
14.4 to VR Iyer, straight to the fielder! Full outside off. Turning further away. Iyer moves to the off side to drag a slog sweep over deep midwicket. But it's been hit flat, and another catch added to Hooda's tally. Out after another top innings. 120/3

Tim Southee4040010.0053210
Shivam Mavi403117.75124100
16.3 to DJ Hooda, taken on the boundary line. Full ball on middle and leg. Hooda clears the front leg to drill a lofted shot over deep midwicket for six. But he mistimes the offcutter, and Tripathi slides along the ground in the deep to take the catch. Back leg very close to the boundary skirting, but replays show that the catch in clean. 134/4
Varun Chakravarthy402426.0081100
8.5 to MA Agarwal, this time nabbed by Morgan at cover! Again Mayank tries to use his bottom hand to loft that full delivery outside off and go inside out, but doesn't get it up and beyond the fielder there. He is furious with himself, but he walks back after a good innings. 70/1
10.4 to N Pooran, sliced to deep backward point! Chakravarthy gets the breakthrough. Full outside off. turning away further. Nicky P looks to smack it over cover, but the shot is not in control. Mavi gets under it.... 84/2
Sunil Narine403418.5050220
15.3 to AK Markram, good length, wider outside off. Cut in front of square and that's been hit too well! Straight to Gill at deep extra cover. Markram can't believe how well he's hit that. The Kings fans in the VIP lounge can't believe that such a good shot has resulted in a wicket. 129/3
Venkatesh Iyer2.3030112.0020301
19.2 to KL Rahul, holes out to long off! Good length outside off. Rahul backs away to make room. Clubs it over the bowler, but only to Mavi at long off! Preity Zinta facepalms. Is this another familiar Kings choke? Rahul walks back for a 55-ball 67. 162/5
