Fall of wickets: 1-79 (Venkatesh Iyer, 10.5 ov), 2-92 (Nitish Rana, 11.5 ov), 3-133 (Shubman Gill, 15.4 ov), 4-145 (Rahul Tripathi, 17.1 ov)
15.4 to Shubman Gill, leading edge, and taken at cover! Morris has his first wicket in the UAE in this leg. The ball was too full on off to try and heave that across to the on side, as Gill played from deep in his crease and his front leg near the leg stump. The ball went sailing, as Jaiswal took a few steps to his left to take that. 133/3
17.1 to RA Tripathi, bowled him! Castles him with that change of pace. Sakariya bowls on a good length on middle, as Tripathi looks to swing that away to the on side after going down on his back knee and making a touch of room. But he is beaten by the lack of pace, and the ball strikes the middle pole. 145/4
10.5 to VR Iyer, Iyer will be so disappointed as he gets bowled trying to play the reverse sweep. Iyer changed his stance to play the reverse. Tewatia bowls stump to stump. He misses the shot, and it hits the pad before crashing into his stump. Partnership broken after 79. 79/1
11.5 to N Rana, holes out! So Rana falls after a 5-ball 12. Which isn't too shabby, but KKR would've wanted a bigger cameo. Full outside off. Rana tries to loft it over extra cover but he's toe-ended the shot. Long off gobbles it up. 92/2

0.3 to YBK Jaiswal, bowled him around his legs! Goes for the reverse sweep, Shakib goes full on off. Misses the shot, ball stays low, and his offstump is rattled. Armball does the trick. 0/1
1.1 to SV Samson, strikes first ball! And its the wicket of the skipper! Good length ball angling in, and his gentle flick goes straight to Morgan diving to his right at midwicket!. 1/2
7.3 to GD Phillips, top of off! Fullish ball on off. Phillips tries to stay on the back foot to punch straight. The ball zips through instead of jagging in. Past the outside edge, and the zing bails have been lit. Time out.. 33/5
7.6 to S Dube, stumps knocked back again! Ball stays a bit low too. Fullish on middle and leg. Dube is slow to get low and flick. Misses the shot. Hits the front leg, and then crashes into the wickets.. 34/6
16.1 to R Tewatia, bottom edge on to the stumps, and gone! This is the lowest total by Royals this IPL. Tewatia goes for the slash to this full ball wide of off, and gets it off the bottom edge and on the bounce to the stumps. Mavi bowls one with a change of pace, and finishes with his best IPL figures. 85/10
3.2 to LS Livingstone, up high! And taken by Tripathi! Short ball, rising delivery. Swivels to pull but too late into the shot. Sliced in the air, and its coming down swiftly, but the fielder runs in from deep backward square leg to take a tumble and catch. 12/3. 12/3
3.4 to Anuj Rawat, trapped lbw? Of course! Full on off and angling in from around off stump. Tries to flick it leg side but doesn't connect. Finger raised and Rawat reviews, but this looks plumb. The left-hander has to go back for a first-ball duck. Ball-tracking is a mere formality: this is crashing into middle stump.. 13/4
11.2 to JD Unadkat, goes slogging, and finds deep point! Fullish ball on off, as he looks to slice that over the off side, but the ball takes off from the bottom of the bat to go ballooning to Shakib in the deep. 62/8
8.6 to CH Morris, the finger goes up even before Varun has finished appealing, and Royals lose their seventh! That was too full on middle to try and sweep after going down on his back knee, repeating the shot from previous ball. Knight Riders riding on well here. 35/7
