1.3 to AJ Finch, and that's the first wicket of IPL 2015. It's onto Finch quicker than he expected. He was in an uncomfortable half-forward position, no position from which to pull - it wasn't short enough for that either - and he top-edged it high in the air, simple catch for the man at deep square leg. 8/1
5.2 to AT Rayudu, Gambhir had two slips in place, and Rayudu has steered this one straight into first slip's hands. Back of a length outside off, left the batsman off the pitch. Simply poked at it with an open face, a nothing shot, and it flew off the outside half of the bat and into Yusuf's palms at a comfortable chest height. 37/3
Shakib Al Hasan4048112.0074320
4.6 to AP Tare, down the track now, Tare doesn't reach the pitch, and he picks out that man Umesh again. Shakib tossed it up slower and wider, and Tare had to reach out in front of his body to hit that, ended up hitting it straight down long-off's throat. 37/2

2.5 to RV Uthappa, gone! This was full, slanted across a bit wider, and Uthappa went for the drive. Was playing away from the body, with an angled bat, and the edge carried through to slip at a comfortable height, just over the head. 13/1
Jasprit Bumrah3038112.6672410
14.2 to G Gambhir, a catch has been taken! It's short, and it gets a bit big on Gambhir as he looks to pull. Had to fetch it from shoulder height, from outside off, and he picked out Rayudu at deep square leg. 121/3
Pragyan Ojha2023011.5010200
Harbhajan Singh403819.5045000
11.6 to MK Pandey, tossed up outside off. Pandey goes for the slog-sweep, has to reach out to connect, ends up hitting it much straighter than he intended, straight down the throat (not literally) of Pollard at long-on. 98/2
