Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Ajinkya Rahane, 4.6 ov), 2-46 (Shane Watson, 5.4 ov), 3-72 (Karun Nair, 9.5 ov), 4-84 (Deepak Hooda, 11.2 ov), 5-89 (Sanju Samson, 12.4 ov), 6-119 (Steven Smith, 17.1 ov), 7-121 (Stuart Binny, 17.5 ov), 8-126 (James Faulkner, 18.5 ov), 9-127 (Dhawal Kulkarni, 19.1 ov)
17.1 to SPD Smith, he has made a blow first up! Serves up one that is full and fast, Smith wants to smash it over long on but that's too quick. All he can manage is a thick top edge that swirls in the air towards gully. DK has plenty of time to move to his right and settle under this. This is going to hurt Royals even more. 119/6
17.5 to STR Binny, makes some good connection on this but clearly it's not enough! Binny hits the fuller delivery inside out but can only sky it towards Wiese at deep extra cover. Starc takes out two. Hail the Avengers. 121/7
19.1 to DS Kulkarni, sheer pace and accuracy, Starc smiles as the off stump goes for a walk! Kulkarni made some room and the ball landed on length and rocketed onto the stumps to send it flying. 127/9
11.2 to DJ Hooda, wild slog for the straight delivery and that's gone through! The length delivery pitched on middle stump and turned away a bit as Hooda looked to slog it to the leg side and missed it by miles. 84/4
4.6 to AM Rahane, the slower delivery works, Rahane is gone! It was an offcutter coming in from outside off, Rahane moved across to help it to leg but could not connect and was trapped in front of middle stump. 36/1
18.5 to JP Faulkner, this is a superb catch! What a wonderful piece of anticipation.. DK starts moving towards his left as soon as he sees Faulkner shaping for the scoop shot and once the batsman doesn't make a good connection, he is always in business. It still takes some doing as he has to dive full length to his left to complete this one-handed. Superb effort from DK. 126/8
5.4 to SR Watson, another shortish ball, another shot in the air and he's holed out to wide long-on! It was not a good delivery, but it looked like a trap as Watson went back to pull it but found Starc in the deep. The fielder didn't have to move at all. 46/2
12.4 to SV Samson, another slog against the away-going delivery, another wicket! Looked like a pre-meditated shot as Samson went down on a knee and slog-swept the ball against the turn and missed the line completely. Off and middle stumps are rattled. 89/5

Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Chris Gayle, 4.3 ov)
4.3 to CH Gayle, such a slow delivery, such a big wicket! This was a slow-slow bouncer at 98kph, Gayle kept waiting and finally decided to pull, got a top edge as he just checked his shot, and Samson jumped to his right to take it with both hands over his head. 36/1
