    15.2 picks out deep midwicket! Overpitched, there for the whip over midwicket that Rahul has attempted. But it must have tailed in late because he can't get a full swing at this. A simple catch and that's Rahul's innings done 141/2
    12.4 sliced straight to sweeper cover! Redemption for Meriwala. Full and wide outside off, has Mayank reaching out again. This time he reaches, but he isn't position to do more than slice and hope. Gets it high in the air and Dhawan takes it with ease. A solid knock ends, Mayank's batting was crisp tonight 122/1
    16.2 taken at extra cover. Woakes deceives him. Slower ball, slammed in at a length and turning away from his arc outside off. Gayle wants to slap that over midwicket and can only slice it up for the infield 158/3

    18.5 sliced to deep point. Low full toss wide outside off, reaches for it and can't get any leverage on it. Rabada takes a few strides to his left and holds onto that 179/4

    5.3 taken at square leg! Arshdeep's slower ball works. So often he seems to be the bowler who has a Plan B for Punjab. Slower one, short of a length and across the corridor. Shaw shuffles into the off side to open up the square boundary - and fair enough, fine leg and square leg were in. But the pace off means he's through it early and gets a top edge. Gayle with some steps to the left to get under that and take it safely 59/1
    14.5 splits middle and off stump! Jhye pumps his fists. It's been an evening of some misery. But this is a decently executed delivery. Full slower one at off stump. Dhawan walks across and exposes the stumps to try and swipe another one past square leg. It's a little too full for that and he is clean bowled. Falls eight short of becoming the only batsman in the IPL apart from Stokes to have two centuries in chase 152/3
    10.6 taken at third man! Short ball at off stump, backs into the leg side early to access the off. Wants to slap this over mid-off, going by where he's pointing as he walks off. Ends up taking the axe to that ball and a very ordinary looking dismissal as he top edges to the man on the boundary 107/2
    17.1 taken after something like four attempts at long-on! The umpire will check that but Hooda is pretty confident and Pant is walking off too. It was a slower short ball at middle stump, miscued pull to Hooda who is upright when he gets under this - it's to his right at chest height. It slips, he reacts, it hits the back of his palm and goes down. He reacts. Gets a hand on it and this time it pops to his left. He reacts. Sticks the left hand out and still can't hold it. It pops. He reacts. He manages to hold on with his right hand and smothers it gratefully 180/4
