11.2 to V Kohli, kisses the base of middle and off stump! A second straight yorker from Sandeep and this time he gets it through Kohli's defences. Top quality bowling from the young medium-pacer. 119/1
17.4 to KD Karthik, clatters into the base of middle stump! His yorkers have been a revelation this season, along with Bhuvi from Sunrisers. DK was moving outside leg to smear it through the covers but it sneaks under his bat. 199/3
16.6 to CH Gayle, taken! Stunning return catch! Axar, take a bow! AB, Maxi and Vijay come up and shake hands with him. What an innings! He had hoped to entertain the crowd today and here's what he managed - 117 off 57, seven fours, and 12, that's 1-2.... 12 sixes! This one though didn't get anywhere close to that elevation. Bashes a fuller delivery down the ground with his full Gayle force and Axar, very brave of him, intercepted it!. 190/2

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Manan Vohra, 0.4 ov), 2-19 (Murali Vijay, 2.2 ov), 3-20 (Glenn Maxwell, 3.1 ov), 4-33 (Wriddhiman Saha, 5.4 ov), 5-34 (David Miller, 5.6 ov), 6-39 (George Bailey, 7.1 ov), 7-49 (Mitchell Johnson, 8.2 ov), 8-49 (Anureet Singh, 8.4 ov), 9-65 (Karanveer Singh, 10.4 ov), 10-88 (Sandeep Sharma, 13.4 ov)
0.4 to M Vohra, has that been taken! That is a fantastic catch by Wiese. Vohra drove this away from his body, without any timing. The ball was dying on the cover fielder. Wiese, however, dives forward and takes an excellent catch, claims it straight away. As with all the replays of such catches, this is very hard to tell. He might have taken it cleanly, but this might go against the fielder. It doesn't. Well done, technology. Starc gets me some points straightaway. 6/1
8.2 to MG Johnson, buh-bye, and Starc just smiles after messing up the off stump. It was fast, it was straight, it got the slog from the batsman, it beat him and Johnson follows his six other team-mates in making a forlorn walk back to the pavilion. 49/7
8.4 to Anureet Singh, another one down! The stumps are in tatters again! Anureet has had a fine day with the ball, conceding only 6.25 amid the carnage, but he walks back with a duck. Swung at a length ball which was just too quick for him. 49/8
10.4 to Karanveer Singh, that's the seventh batsman out bowled! Full, fast, threatening off stump and these aren't idle threats either. Too good for Karanveer. 65/9
3.1 to GJ Maxwell, off stump knocked over! Maxi has not looked like the usual Maxi and he falls to an average slog! It was a good length ball angled across. The batsman went across the line with the scoreboard pressure bearing down on him. Misses and Aravind hits. Sets off a la Imran Tahir, roar and all. 20/3
5.4 to WP Saha, simply done at mid-on. Kohli moves to his right, eyes on the ball all the way, pouches it and dives with his momentum. No timing on the shot from Saha even as he runs down the track. Goes for a heave, mistimes it because he is rushed into his stroke. 33/4
5.6 to DA Miller, top of off knocked back again! Miller runs down and misses a length, slightly slower, ball as he plays outside the line. Bat and pad gap exploited and Chinnaswamy continues to rumble. 34/5
7.1 to GJ Bailey, lazy drive on the up outside off, Aravind jags the ball back and hurtles through bat and pad to peg off stump. This has become a procession. 39/6
2.2 to M Vijay, what a corker! This is full and swings away very late. Vijay wanted to whip it through the leg side but this moves away from the blade and takes out the middle stump. That is a one helluva delivery. 19/2
13.4 to Sandeep Sharma, there we have it! Two runs shy of the worst IPL defeat in history. Sandeep gets down the track and yorks himself. Jams his bat down and gives a dolly back to the bowler. 88/10
