Shivam Mavi401313.25151010
6.3 to CH Gayle, big appeal for caught behind on Gayle's first ball! The umpire doesn't move, Karthik is confident there's an edge and reviews even as Gayle's eyes are stuck on the umpire. UltraEdge shows there's a spike when the ball passes the bottom of the bat as Gayle drives away from the body without footwork, it's a first ball duck for Gayle!. 38/2
Pat Cummins3031210.3392310
5.4 to KL Rahul, doesn't middle this enough either and he's skied it to mid-off. Made room again for the length ball, lofted it down the ground with a big drive but it wasn't off the middle and Narine had enough time to get under it near the edge of the circle. 36/1
18.1 to Ravi Bishnoi, flick to leg turns into a leading edge high on the off side and taken easily. Cummins angled the short ball into Bishnoi who was way too early to close the face of the bat in front of the stumps, the ball takes the thick outside edge and hangs in the air on the off side before falling in Morgan's hands at cover. 98/8
Sunil Narine402225.50101100
11.2 to MA Agarwal, tumbles over but that's a great catch from Tripathi at deep midwicket! And it's the big wicket of Agarwal. Short ball again, Agarwal pulled it off the middle but there's a fielder there who runs in a few yards quickly and gets both his hands under the ball in front of him, and then rolls over to complete it. 60/4
13.1 to MC Henriques, bowled'm through the gate! An offbreak from Narine, no mystery there, and it pitches on the perfect length just outside off to bring Henriques forward but he leaves a big gap between bat and pad, and the ball turns in to sneak through and rattle the stumps. 75/5
Prasidh Krishna403037.50120320
7.4 to DJ Hooda, taken at backward point, sharp catch from captain Morgan. Hooda plays on the up and away from the body for this back of length ball well outside off, the seam was pointing towards third man, and he wasn't in control at all while reaching out so far out. Thick edge flew to Morgan who got his hands under the ball in front of him just in time. 42/3
17.2 to M Shahrukh Khan, connects with the pull this time, but not in control at all and Morgan comes under it at extra cover to pouch it easily. Another big wicket falls for Punjab Kings. Prasidh persisted with the short length, it was a slow cutter, Shahrukh went for his pull and he only managed a top edge which skied the ball. 95/7
19.4 to CJ Jordan, deceives him with the slower ball and hits off stump! Prasidh has the last laugh in this last over battle as he lands a length ball at 103kmh on off, Jordan swings again, as expected, but misses it this time. 121/9
Andre Russell10202.0040000
Varun Chakravarthy402416.00101100
14.2 to N Pooran, swing and a miss, Pooran loses his off stump! Varun takes off in celebration, Karthik shrieks behind the stumps as Pooran pulls with a big heave but he misses this legbreak completely. Short ball on off, just a bit of turn to retain its line and the ball sneaks under the mighty bat of Pooran. 79/6

Moises Henriques10515.0041000
0.4 to N Rana, full toss chipped to cover! I've not seen a softer dismissal this IPL, and Rana is really disappointed with himself. Innocuous full toss well outside off, Rana merely chips it in the air and Shahrukh dives to his right to grab it with both hands and that's a duck for Rana. 5/1
Mohammed Shami402516.25174110
1.5 to Shubman Gill, struck right in front, Shami knows it's out, umpire gives it immediately and Gill is walking, no point reviewing that. This one also pitched on length in front of off but didn't go straight like the previous ball, it nipped in, beat the batter who went for a cross-batted shot and was plumb. 9/2
Arshdeep Singh2.4027110.1255000
2.6 to SP Narine, that's the greatest catch of this IPL already, Ravi Bishnoi has taken a stunner and is running away with the ball, someone stop him! Narine would have finally thought he's connected with a heave, and he did off that back of length ball, but it also went pretty high on the leg side, and Bishnoi ran and ran to his right from deep midwicket and put in a sliding dive at just the right time to pluck the ball a split-second before it could touch the ground. He can't believe it himself he's taken it. 17/3
Ravi Bishnoi401904.7591000
Chris Jordan302408.0084000
Deepak Hooda2020110.0032100
10.6 to RA Tripathi, Tripathi finds Shahrukh at long-on, the bowling change has worked! Tripathi charged down lofted the length ball down but didn't get the distance, and Shahrukh went to his left to grab that along with a tumble. 83/4
