Fall of wickets: 1-81 (Robin Uthappa, 10.4 ov), 2-103 (Gautam Gambhir, 13.2 ov), 3-131 (Suryakumar Yadav, 16.1 ov), 4-131 (Manish Pandey, 16.2 ov), 5-163 (Yusuf Pathan, 19.1 ov), 6-173 (Shakib Al Hasan, 19.5 ov)
16.1 to SA Yadav, not long before he targets that leg-side boundary, but he's caught in the deep! He went back in the crease to whip that short of length ball to the long-leg boundary, gets some distance but Mandeep takes it right at the boundary. Harshal roars, he has some whiskers too. 131/3
19.1 to YK Pathan, that goes high and straight down the ground, Virat runs to his left from long on and takes a good catch on the move. Back of length it was, Yusuf slogged to the leg side and got a leading edge. 163/5
10.4 to RV Uthappa, in the air again and the catch is taken this time, at long on! Robbie slapped the short ball from outside off down the ground. The ball was in the air for some time and became an easy catch for Sammy. 81/1
13.2 to G Gambhir, it's high, it's not off the middle of the bat, and he's taken at deep midwicket. GG slog-sweeps the fullish delivery from middle and leg, it goes high enough for Mandeep to take it easy in the deep. 103/2

TOTAL19 Ov (RR: 9.42)179/7
Fall of wickets: 1-29 (Virat Kohli, 4.5 ov), 2-50 (Dinesh Karthik, 7.3 ov), 3-56 (Mandeep Singh, 7.6 ov), 4-93 (AB de Villiers, 10.6 ov), 5-119 (Daren Sammy, 14.4 ov), 6-133 (Sean Abbott, 16.1 ov), 7-171 (Chris Gayle, 18.2 ov)
4.5 to V Kohli, loud appeal for a catch down leg and the finger's gone up, Kohli is gone! Good pace and bounce for the short ball as it was going down leg, Kohli pulled, got some glove before Uthappa took a good catch. 29/1
10.6 to AB de Villiers, he wanted another one but is beaten by the change in pace and is stumped so fast by Robbie before AB can look back. Came down the track for the ball that was outside off, it was much flatter and went under AB's horizontal bat as he missed it. Robbie does the best, Cariappa doesn't celebrate his maiden IPL wicket at all. 93/4
7.3 to KD Karthik, knocks the stumps, DK misses it completely! It pitched well outside off and DK went back in the crease to cut it late but he got too far away from it. 50/2
7.6 to Mandeep Singh, why, why would he do that? He just hit a six and now tries to reverse sweep the ball that pitches on middle stump. The ball is turning in and he's playing the off-stump line, loses his leg stump. 56/3
14.4 to DJG Sammy, another stumping chance, this one goes to the third umpire no idea why! Sammy came well out of his crease, got beaten in the air and Robbie whipped the bails off in no time to stump him. 119/5
