Sandeep Sharma411914.75132010
2.5 to SV Samson, Sandeep belts out an lbw appeal and forefinger goes up. Samson departs for 5. This one lifts from a length on off, Sanju plays down the wrong line and does not meet with the flick as he is rapped on the knee-roll. It may have just bounced over the stumps. Not too sure. 14/2
Anureet Singh402335.75121100
1.3 to AM Rahane, Anureet strikes early. Rahane perishes for nought. He races down the track, manufactures a length ball, skews it off the bottom of the bat. That is a dolly for mid-off as Rahane makes a hash of the lofted stroke. 5/1
16.4 to DJ Hooda, Anureet strikes back, just as Hooda threatened to soar, his wings have been clipped. He shuffles across off now, Anureet delivers a near-yorker, not pin-point, but it rattles the leg stump. Anureet throws a Johnson-like stare at the vanquished Hooda. 126/6
19.3 to JP Faulkner, Miller in the action again, this time pulling off a smart-looking catch. Full toss around the leg-stump line, he goes down on one knee, but does not get enough power behind the slog-sweep. Holes out to long-on. Miller snapped it, realised that he was close to the ad boards, and then regained his balance and pouched it on the rebound. The second grab does it for Miller and Kings XI Punjab. 160/7
Axar Patel403418.5092220
5.6 to KK Nair, Good riposte from Axar and he lets out a roar. Rajasthan Royals have been reduced to 35 for 3. This was the arm-ball from Axar, quicker and flatter. Karun aims to swipe over midwicket again. He misses it this time. But Axar nails the middle stump. It is knocked back. 35/3
Karanveer Singh4043010.7543200
Mitchell Johnson403428.50162250
10.1 to SPD Smith, Mitch takes down his Aussie team-mate. This was dragged short and wide outside off, Steve Smith seeks to pull it away. He has to settle with a thick top-edge. Straight down the gullet of deep third man ( not literally). Smith looks back at the umpire and waits as the umpires check for a possible no-ball. It is a legal delivery and Smith's bright knock has been cut short. 74/4
10.4 to STR Binny, Binny has nicked off! Mitch Johnson is on a roll #like a boss. This was a teasing fullish ball sliding outside off, Binny is lured into pushing at it and the outside edge is held by Saha.. 75/5

Tim Southee403629.00134130
0.1 to V Sehwag, Sehwag gone for a golden duck, Southee delivers the customary early breakthrough. Watto and Dravid look pleased in the dug-out. This was full and moving across Viru, who chases it only to nick it through. The outside edge is well held by Sanju, diving across to his right. I guess his son will be teased more in school, fourth golden duck in IPL for Sehwag. 0/1
17.3 to AR Patel, hurled in mighty full, not quite a pin-point yorker. Axar steps away and misses it completely. Southee shatters the leg stump. This sluggish knock - 24 off 28 balls - has sucked all the oxygen from Kings XI Punjab's chase. 122/6
Chris Morris402105.25141110
Dhawal Kulkarni302117.00104010
13.1 to DA Miller, After carrying drinks or bowling to his India team-mates for 120 days, Dhawal finally has a wicket in a competitive match. This one lifts from a length outside off, Miller looks to go over the leg side. His crude heave translates into a leading edge, which is swallowed by Faulkner at deep third man after running to his right. 92/5
James Faulkner402636.50112100
4.6 to GJ Maxwell, Southee completes a fine catch, no Maxwell magic today for Kings XI Punjab. Maxwell backs away and aims to smash this back of a length ball away over the off side, but does not get hold of it as he can only splice it. Southee moves to his left from mid-off, dives and snaffles the take. 46/3
18.3 to MG Johnson, Johnson perishes for nought after being hoodwinked by Faulkner's change of pace. Oh wait, the umpires are checking for a possible no-ball. He may have had some part of his heel behind the bowling crease. Johnson aims to go big and holes out to long-off. 129/7
18.6 to GJ Bailey, Oh what an insane catch! Superb tag-team work from Southee and Karun Nair. What presence of mind. The fielding has veered from ordinary to extraordinary tonight. This is an extraordinary, assisted hokey-pokey catch. On a length and on the leg stump, Bailey attacks it and sends it into the Pune night sky. Tim Southee goes as far back on the long-on boundary as he could, leaps, plucks out his right hand and takes it. But his balance is shot as the momentum threatens to take him over the ad boards. However, he has the presence of mind to pass it to Karun, who dives across to his right and hangs onto a low catch. This is one for archived viewing. 131/8
