3.4 to SK Raina, Raina picks out mid-off. Two in two for the Royals.. Morris follows up a couple of shortish balls with a length-delivery outside off, Raina camps back, seeks to drive and ends up chipping it to mid-off. Faulkner helps himself to a simpler catch. He takes a high-five from Smith. 15/2
17.2 to BB McCullum, Baz's effort comes to an end, sharp catch from Ankit. This was banged in short, climbs on a middle-stump line. Baz attempts a pull and can only top-edge it. Ankit runs in from long leg, dives forward and takes a smart catch. 129/4
17.3 to P Negi, Twin strike from Morris. Full in length on middle, Negi backs away and toe-ends the attempted slap to the covers, where Smith reverse cups his hands around it. No mistake from Smith. This did not need a jump. Negi throws his head back.. 129/5

5.3 to AM Rahane, The short ball consumes Rahane. Dug in short on the stumps, Rahane attempts a pull and has to settle with a top-edge. This one got big on Rahane. DJ Bravo runs forward from deep square leg and takes it. 37/1
18.3 to JP Faulkner, DJ Bravo, you beauty! What a night he is having. He pulls off another top catch. He shows off his moves again. This was a low full toss around off, Faulkner slaps it in the air, Bravo leaps off his feet, time time at cover and snaffles it! He loves to dance to the crowd..... 130/7
18.4 to R Bhatia, Faf completes a sharp catch now. Back of the hand slower ball outside off at 102ks, Bhatia comes down the track and slices it. Faf moves to his right from backward point, takes it and tumbles onto the ground. He is down, clutching his hamstring. He has a smile on his face as well. Thanks for coming, Bhatia.. 130/8
Pawan Negi403508.7554010
Ravindra Jadeja401142.75130000
7.4 to SPD Smith, Timber or a stumping chance? They go to the TV umpire. Smith shakes his head while Dhoni is confident. Jaddu gets Smith. Pushed through, Smith shuffles across off and misses the sweep completely, the ball hits the leg stump and dislodges the bails. Crucial wicket for the hosts. 48/2
9.6 to SR Watson, DJ Bravo pulls off an absolute blinder! He sets off on a celebratory sprint towards long-off. Could that be a game-changer like how he had run out Kohli on his follow through earlier in the tournament? The crowd loving this. This was full and on middle, Watson presses forward and lofts it in the air. It seemed destined to go over the ropes.... until Bravo at long-on leaps off his feet, stretches his right hand and plucks out a superb one-handed catch. He also held his balance, ensuring that the momentum did not take him over. Bravo then breaks into a customary jig before being flanked by Raina. Oh boy, Bravo is a crowd-pleaser. Isn't he?. 63/3
11.5 to KK Nair, third wicket for Jaddu! Looped up and outside off, Karn sinks to one knee for a slog sweep and lobs it into the hands of Ashwin at short fine leg. Top edge, Dolly catch, soft dismissal. Jaddu blows kisses and looks skywards. 75/4
14.1 to DJ Hooda, Jaddu strikes again, 4 for 8. Pushed through on off, Hooda steps out, manufactures a full toss. Instead of mowing it away, he mishits the lofted stroke and holes out to long-on. Suresh Raina steadies under it and snaffles a good overhead catch before tumbling onto the ground. 90/5
Dwayne Bravo4043210.7531301
17.4 to SV Samson, The West Indian combo does it! Another of the slow balls outside off, Samson goes for an encore. Charges down the track, Swings hard and Smith runs in from sweeper cover to pouch it. Good catch from Smith and Bravo snatches the purple cap from Nehraji. 123/6
19.4 to Ankit Sharma, slower ball, length and outside off, Ankit Sharma slogs and gets a thick edge to short third man, Nehra takes a fine overhead catch there. 143/9
