Bhuvneshwar Kumar4045111.25106210
19.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, taken by midwicket running back. Slower ball across off stump at a length. Looks for the slog, is deceived and ends up slicing that. Samad runs to his left, stretches his hands out and holds on. That is not easy to do. 187/6
Sandeep Sharma3035011.6655100
T Natarajan403719.2573210
15.2 to RA Tripathi, held on the second attempt. Natarajan gets Tripathi with a slower ball. Cuts away from a leg stump line. He's down for the slog sweep but that ends up a slice off the low part of the bat. Floats to Saha's left and behind him. It pops out of the gloves as he turns but he's alert to where it's headed and holds on. 146/2
Mohammad Nabi403228.0092200
17.3 to N Rana, taken at long-off. Afghan spin pulling KKR back here. Slow, length, just outside off. Rana has cleared the front leg to swing into the leg side. Ends up slicing an easy one for long-off. A good innings from Rana, looked tired by the end though and tapered off a little. 160/4
17.4 to EJG Morgan, taken at deep backward square! Intelligent grab there from Samad, who had to take a few steps backward and to his left. Length ball slanted into leg stump, got the sweep out but not a lot of elevation on that. Samad takes it with a well timed jump and a reverse cup. 160/5
Rashid Khan402426.00101010
6.6 to Shubman Gill, Enter Rashid. Exit Gill. There's the breakthrough for SRH. Wrong'un from Rashid, on a length and breaking in. Gill goes for a roundhouse swipe, loses his balance, misses the sweep altogether. Rashid nails off stump. 53/1
16.2 to AD Russell, Pandey holds low to his right. Expertly done, as always. Rashid was kept for Russell, and he has the stick on him yet again. This was full and it was drilled hard and flat to long-on's left. Pandey ended up over-running it, but his eyes tracked it all the way and he managed to twist to go to his right and hold on after a decent amount of sprinting to his left. 157/3

Harbhajan Singh10808.0030100
Prasidh Krishna403528.75114040
1.3 to DA Warner, gets him with a sharp one. Prasidh has slammed this back of a length, rising with the angle across leg stump. Warner is cramped and looks to drop that into the leg side, but it's taken the outside edge and carried nicely. 10/1
15.6 to Mohammad Nabi, caught at cover, change of pace does the trick. Completely took the pace off that one did Prasidh, this was at 91.2 kph, full on a fourth stump line. Nabi sticks to the tried and tested method of backing away and freeing his arms, but only manages to squirt it high off a leading edge, beaten by the lack of pace.. 131/4
Shakib Al Hasan403418.5081300
2.1 to WP Saha, chopped onto leg stump! Short of a length and skidding in with the angle, in the corridor. Saha cuts for one that would've turned more, but Shakib thrives on that. And he has a wicket first ball for his new team, against his former team. 10/2
Pat Cummins403017.5091200
12.6 to JM Bairstow, short, wide, slashed straight into the lap of backward point. Bairstow creates more swinging room, but can't clear the infielder. Straightforward catch for Rana and that wicket exposes Sunrisers' fragile middle order. 102/3
Andre Russell3032110.6652210
17.6 to V Shankar, caught at cover. Dre has really got that angle from around the wicket working for him, and Shankar couldn't quite get properly underneath this as he tried to go over long-off. Ends up with a leading edge that loops up for a simple catch.. 150/5
