Pat Cummins4054113.5085320
0.1 to DR Smith, that's a blinder first ball, Smith gone for a golden duck! It was pretty wide outside the off stump, Smith chased the delivery with a swipe uppishly and ten Doeschate flew to his left from cover point to gab it with both hands. The crowd erupts even more. 0/1
Umesh Yadav201618.0084000
3.3 to SK Raina, he's handed it straight to mid-on, Raina gone! Umesh pitched it up, looks like Raina wanted to clear the infield but he merely chipped it to Chawla's right at mid on. He didn't have to move much. 43/2
Piyush Chawla402115.25154000
6.5 to MS Dhoni, one more, Chawla bowls Dhoni with a googly! It came in sharply from outside off, Dhoni went in the crease to steer the ball to the leg side and the ball stayed low to find the gap between bat and pad. The crowd is loving this!. 72/5
Brad Hogg402947.25143200
5.1 to BB McCullum, he's got him first ball, the 44-year-old has struck straightaway! He started with a flat delivery on the stumps, short of length, Baz pulled and missed it and was struck right in front. Maybe he thought it was too high and wasn't that happy. Looked plumb in replays. 64/3
5.5 to F du Plessis, second wicket of the over, the wrong one has done it! Faf walked down, tried to steer it with the spin to the leg side, but the ball went the other way from around off and beat him completely. Uthappa does the rest. 69/4
18.3 to RA Jadeja, flighted on leg, Jadeja sweeps it hard but can't clear the tall man Cummins. He got a fullish delivery, went down on a knee and swept the ball, but holed out to deep midwicket. Hogg's third wicket. 154/7
18.5 to P Negi, that's the quicker one from Hoggy and he knocks the off stump! The flatter delivery came in from just outside off, Negi tried to cut it off the back foot but was beaten by the pace and his bat came down late. 160/8
Yusuf Pathan201105.5041000
Andre Russell402025.00112000
16.3 to DJ Bravo, the slower one finally does it, Bravo misses it completely! It was the slower offcutter from just outside off, Bravo played it early and let one hand go off the bat when he realised he didn't pick it, and the ball knocked over the off stump. 129/6
19.1 to MM Sharma, starts with a slower ball and gets his second wicket! Mohit slogged the length delivery to the leg side, mistimed it completely and got a very high edge which Uthappa got under by running towards short leg. Took it comfortably. 160/9

Mohit Sharma402215.50142100
4.2 to G Gambhir, third man's got it! Well, that's at least one outside edge that doesn't sail over the ropes. Good length ball on middle, Gamhir goes for the across-the-line hoick. Instead the ball flies to the other side and is taken smartly on the edge of the boundary. 33/1
Ashish Nehra403609.00113230
Pawan Negi402315.7580110
8.2 to MK Pandey, holes out to deep midwicket straightaway, Negi strikes! He sent in a short and flat delivery on the leg stump, Pandey went back to pull it from the middle and gave an easy and straightforward catch to Jadeja. 54/2
Ronit More3.503118.0831010
9.1 to SA Yadav, it's More's first IPL wicket, he gets Suryakumar! The bowler angled in a length delivery and the batsman targeted the leg side, like he always does, and got a top edge that went very high on the off side. Bravo ran to his right from third man and pouched it to follow it with a jig, the crowd likes it. 57/3
