4.4 to DR Smith, Anureet strikes! He bangs it short, Smith is tucked up for room and does not get hold of the attempted pull. The ball grazes the front thigh, elbow and then disturbs the leg stump. 50/1
12.1 to BB McCullum, Baz has holed out to long-off. No mistake from Miller. Axar tosses this up, Baz backs away and lofts it to long-off. Miller runs forward, dives and pouches it. 116/2

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Virender Sehwag, 0.5 ov), 2-35 (Shaun Marsh, 5.1 ov), 3-40 (George Bailey, 6.3 ov), 4-55 (David Miller, 8.6 ov), 5-55 (Murali Vijay, 9.2 ov), 6-66 (Axar Patel, 11.4 ov), 7-69 (Mitchell Johnson, 12.2 ov), 8-90 (Wriddhiman Saha, 17.4 ov), 9-94 (Anureet Singh, 19.1 ov)
0.5 to V Sehwag, Viru gone for one! How soft was that? Good length and outside off, looks like it stuck in the pitch and stopped on Viru. He checks his push. He is crease-bound as he spoons it into the hands of Faf at mid-off. 4/1
5.1 to SE Marsh, Marsh has been given out lbw! Fractionally back of a length and swerves in on middle, Marsh seeks to flick it away, but is rapped on the front pad on the knee roll. The umpire raises his forefinger. 35/2
17.4 to WP Saha, Saha finds Ashwin. Fractionally short and on middle, Saha aims to help it away with a pull. Mishits it in the air over backward square leg. Ashwin runs across to his left from long leg and takes it. 90/8
19.1 to Anureet Singh, another soft dismissal. Anureet backs away outside leg, Mohit follows him with a back-of-the-hand slower ball with some extra bounce. Sliced straight down the throat of Jadeja at backward point. That was the definition of a dolly. 94/9
6.3 to GJ Bailey, Jadeja strikes in his first over, Kings XI reduced to 40 for 3. Jadeja sets off on a celebratory run with his hands aloft in joy. He loops this up outside off and gets it to turn away, Bailey is glued to the crease as he aims to drive it over the covers. Only manages an outside edge that is held by Dhoni. 40/3
8.6 to DA Miller, What's with Dhoni and leg-slips? Faf hugs Raina. This is a sharp, low catch. This was pushed through on a leg-stump line, Miller glances it. Raina anticipates well, moves to his left, stoops low and takes it inches from the turf before tumbling onto the ground. 55/4
12.2 to MG Johnson, Kings XI continue to stumble. Fuller and on middle and leg, Johnson sinks to one knee for a slog-sweep. He does not connect well and top-edges it to deep backward square leg. Nehra dives forward and comes out with the ball in his hands and a big smile on his face. In contrast, Johnson throws his head back. 69/7
9.2 to M Vijay, Vijay's promising innings come to an end. Kings XI reeling at 55 for 5. This was tossed up outside off, Vijay skips out, picks it up from there and drops it to deep midwicket. Bravo comes forward, pouches it and breaks into a customary jig. 55/5
11.4 to AR Patel, Ashwin has his man! He gives this ample air outside off and gets it to turn away. Axar is lured out of the crease, swipes across the line and misses. Dhoni whips the bails off in a flash. 66/6
