Over 4.5 Andre Russell good length delivery to Rahul Tripathi, out Caught by Karthik!! Tripathi get into the hook. Beaten for pace, and he gets a feather of a glove on it to DK behind the stumps.

Over 7.2 Kuldeep Yadav bowls it flat in the air to Ajinkya Rahane, out Bowled! Rahane gets across his stumps and tries to whack it away behind point, misses it altogether and ends up and the ball knocks the top of the middle.

Over 9.2 Kuldeep Yadav bowls a tossed up delivery to JC Buttler, out Caught by Searles!! Buttler goes for it anyway, and gets it off the top half of the bat, and lobs it to Searles at backward point.

Over 10.3 SP Narine bowls a tossed up delivery to SV Samson, out Lbw!! The ball skidded on and the batsman was late on the attempted swat on the on-side and the ball hit the batsman high on the back leg.

Over 11.1 Kuldeep Yadav bowls a tossed up delivery to STR Binny, out Stumped!! Binny looks to whip a flighted ball outside off and misses it. The ball turned away past the blade and DK whipped the bails off in a flash.

Over 12.6  Shivam Mavi bowls it short of length to Krishnappa Gowtham, out Caught by Dinesh Karthik!  Gowtham tries to play the pull on the back foot. The ball flicked the gloves and went up for the keeper to take it with ease.

Over 13.5 Kuldeep Yadav bowls a tossed up delivery to Ben Stokes, out Caught and Bowled!! Too full, flighted as well and the soft leading edge finds the bowler. The bowler stays low and pouches it.

Over 16.3 Prasidh Krishna good length delivery to Ish Sodhi, out Caught by Karthik!! Sodhi stays on the front foot and jams it out off the inner half of the bat but into his boot. And then it went up for DK to take it.

Over 17.3 Andre Russell good length delivery to Jofra Archer, out Caught by Shubman Gill!! Short ball, rising up and the batsman trying to pull it away, managed only a lot of height. The man at deep square leg came in and took it.

Over 18.6 Prasidh Krishna good length delivery to Jaydev Unadkat, out Bowled!! That was a slower delivery and the batsman went for the slog sweep but was outdone by the lack of pace on it and the ball knocks it stumps.
