11.4 to GJ Maxwell, bowled him with a superb delivery! Flicks his fingers over the ball, tosses it up, gets it to drift in and skid through on middle, Maxwell went for an ugly mow but was through with it early, the ball sneaked through to crash into the stumps.. 63/5
11.5 to PWH de Silva, big shout for lbw, given! Wanindu completely misreads that and plays for the turn away, but this one pitches on middle and skids through to crash into the pad. As an umpire, Nigel Llong couldn't have asked for an easier decision to make.. 63/6
13.4 to Sachin Baby, deceived and gone! He slices this straight to backward point. Baby doesn't pick the wrong'un as he looks to swing into the leg side, the easy catch popped to Nitish Rana.. 66/7
1.4 to V Kohli, rapped in front, and given! Prasidh hits back right away. But Kohli reviews. The ball was fullish on middle, and was darting back in as Kohli went to flick that toward square leg and missed. No inside edge is confirmed by UltraEdge. Looks like it would be clipping leg stump, with a possible chance of umpire's call there. There is a bit of wait for ball tracking though... But it is three reds, and replays confirm that would have hit the top of leg. What a vital breakthrough so early for Knight Riders. 10/1
5.6 to D Padikkal, taken behind by Karthik, and Knight Riders wrap up the powerplay with a wicket! Padikkal looks to ramp that good length ball on middle toward third man, but the ball is too close to his body to play that shot, since he has to sway out of the way and go low too. There is a thick outside edge there, and Ferguson has his man. 41/2
16.3 to HV Patel, right into the blockhole, 'you miss, I hit' stuff. Harshal exposed all three stumps in trying to scythe that behind point. It was the slower yorker. Lovely delivery.. 83/9
8.1 to KS Bharat, pulled to deep square leg, and a good catch by Gill running to his right! Goes for the pull to this short ball on off, with the ball almost rushing on to him. He was nearly off balance too while playing that, and seemed to have got that from the higher side of the bat too. Not a great innings by Bharat, considering he was in early and during the powerplay. 51/3
8.4 to AB de Villiers, bowled him first ball! A crashing yorker has de Villiers for a golden duck! Very full ball on middle and leg, which is also shaping to come into the batter. de Villiers' front leg is on leg stump, as the ball strikes that to ricochet behind to the stumps. What a blow for the Royal Challengers. 52/4
18.6 to Mohammed Siraj, this time he gets bat to ball in trying to scoop that but guess what? He's picked out fine leg. Ah, he didn't even have to move an inch.. 92/10

9.1 to Shubman Gill, he's holed out to long-off. Gill lives by the sword, dies by it. Looking to step out and launch Yuzi down into Sheikh Zayed Road, but doesn't time it well. Ends up slicing this to Siraj.. 82/1
