Fall of wickets: 1-49 (Devdutt Padikkal, 5.1 ov), 2-69 (Srikar Bharat, 9.4 ov), 3-88 (Virat Kohli, 12.2 ov), 4-102 (AB de Villiers, 14.2 ov), 5-112 (Glenn Maxwell, 16.4 ov), 6-126 (Shahbaz Ahmed, 18.6 ov), 7-134 (Dan Christian, 19.4 ov)
5.1 to D Padikkal, chopped on! Full and wide outside off from around the stumps. Padikkal sees the length and goes for the drive. But the ball has been inside-edged onto the stumps. A big fist pump from Lockie, and Padikkal walks back looking down. 49/1
18.6 to Shahbaz Ahmed, skies that to deep midwicket! A lowish full-toss on middle, and angling in. Shahbaz was standing outside leg, and went for the heave to the on side, but seemed to have got that from the bottom half of the bat. Mavi at the boundary remained unfazed by a team-mate of his running toward him from his right, and completed a calm take in the end. 126/6
9.4 to KS Bharat, full, wider outside off. Bharat finally goes for the big shot, but he doesn't have the power to get it over long off. Iyer runs around to get it, and Bharat falls after a 16-ball 9! The carrom ball turning away, and Narine gives out a tiny smile after the dismissal. 69/2
12.2 to V Kohli, how beautiful is that ball. Full on middle. Kohli gets low to pay the slog sweep. But Narine delivers this slower through the air. Kohli goes for the slog sweep, but it goes under the bat and crashes into leg stump. Kohli gone after a strike-rate of under 120.. 88/3
14.2 to AB de Villiers, another beauty! Narine bowled Kohli. Narine bowled de Villiers. Big player has turned up on the big day. Its the flicker that he releases. Full on off. Slow in the air. de Villiers looks to defend, but there's a tiny gap between bat and pad. Turns in, goes through the space, and the bails have lit up once again!. 102/4
16.4 to GJ Maxwell, there's the fourth! Narine turning it on. Full on middle. Maxwell looks for the slog sweep. Sharp turn in, sliced in the air, and the ball is spiraling towards short third man. Ferguson under it. 112/5

Fall of wickets: 1-41 (Shubman Gill, 5.2 ov), 2-53 (Rahul Tripathi, 6.6 ov), 3-79 (Venkatesh Iyer, 10.6 ov), 4-110 (Nitish Rana, 14.2 ov), 5-125 (Sunil Narine, 17.2 ov), 6-126 (Dinesh Karthik, 17.4 ov)
17.2 to SP Narine, bowled him! Siraj leaps in the air, as he adds a touch of excitement to this. The off stump is pushed back, as Siraj bowls on a good length on off, and with a scrambled seam. Narine stands outside leg and prepares to slog that to the on side, but misses his heave. Some late drama here then?. 125/5
17.4 to KD Karthik, carried to Bharat? Yes, he thinks so. Karthik has started walking back already though, but the umpire goes upstairs. Good length ball outside off, and angling in. Karthik looks to half-cut-half-drive at that, but gets a faint outside edge off the bottom off the bat. The ball is dying to Bharat, who goes low to try and pouch that. Remember, there is no soft signal in IPL, so the call is to be entirely made by the third umpire. The TV umpire is not satisfied with the angles so far, and so we wait for more replays. Now he says he can see "fingers underneath", and Karthik has finally disappeared into the pavilion. 126/6
5.2 to Shubman Gill, sends that up milessss in the air, and de Villiers pouches it moving to his right from mid-on! Gill is foxed by the slower ball - an offcutter - which is full on middle, and looks to check his shot last moment. He makes room to try and send that into space, but ends up splicing it with his bottom hand off. That hung up in night sky for ages, before finally landing in de Villiers' hands to leave Kohli pumped. 41/1
10.6 to VR Iyer, another short ball, and tickled behind to the keeper! That is 32 wickets for Harshal this season, and he ties with Bravo for most wickets in an IPL season. Iyer pulls at this short ball on middle - which is also a slower ball - but gets a touch of glove behind to the keeper, as Bharat dives to his right to grab at that. 79/3
6.6 to RA Tripathi, the googly now! Huge appeal for leg before, but not given. Kohli reviews. The ball strikes Tripathi's front pad as he looks to jab at that but is beaten. Hits him just above his knee after pitching on a good length outside off, and turning sharply into him. No inside edge is confirmed by UltraEdge. And replays show the ball would have taken the leg stump. So Tripathi departs, and Royal Challengers pinch one on the review. 53/2
14.2 to N Rana, taken at long on and Chahal gets the wicket. Full on middle. Turning in. Rana goes for the slog sweep, but mistimed. In the air, but doesn't have the distance. Rana going for a poor-shot choice, giving RCB a sniff in. 110/4
