4

to Kohli, FOUR, that's a starter. So delicious. Gets this length ball angled wide from over the wicket, waited on the back foot and packs a punch through covers. Extra cover dives but Kohli has hit it and it obeys him

W

Morris to Gayle, out Bowled!! Gayle's been hoked. For room. Morris had employed two slips and you would have expeted a fuller one. Instead, a length ball athes Gayle stuk behind. Just manages a late shuffle aross to leg to make room for the ut. Unfair to all it a ut seeing the fore into that shot.. more like hung his parallel bat out there. But the length isn't there and nor is the room, as the angle from over the wiket wasn't overbaked. Inside edge and an ugly hop onto the stumps. Gayle b Morris 1(4)

4

Morris to de Villiers, FOUR, short and away! Not your free flowing pull but he digs deep into the rease as he swivels and shames this shortish delivery over square leg

W

to de Villiers, out Caught by Jayant Yadav!! Jayant Yadav, you piece of brilliance. Extra bounce the key here. stuck to his over the wicket line, got this length ball to jag in with extra bounce and de Villiers was done there and then. Arched back and managed to punch it off the splice, had taken one hand off to keep it onto the ground but.. Jayant Yadav had different plans. Sprints from cover-point, dives forward - using that spring in his midriff - and pouches a de Villiers-ending sternest of stunners. de Villiers c Jayant Yadav b 6(8) [4s-1]

4

Morris to Rahul, FOUR, a pithed up delivery and that's a drive in free fall. Kept zooting aross the turf. Rahul niely ame forward seeing the length, had the balane to flow into a drive and aressed it away delightfully

4

Morris to Rahul, FOUR, just enough width and Rahul is quik to rok bak and stand tall. He's done that like fliking a swith. Front foot last ball and bak foot now. Took his bottom hand off as he threw his bat at it and slotted it over a leaping bakward point. Morris has a mini hat with Rahul after this. Not a heated one but I ould see Kohli mouthing something out, intended to shut Morris up. "Shut up" maybe? I know not. Inonlusive reviews. We need better tehnology *wink*

4

to Kohli, FOUR, that's been played with a Buddha composure. Full and on the pads from over the wicket, Kohli leans forward and eases it through mid-on. Raced away, need I say?

4

to Kohli, FOUR, a slice of luck now. Had shuffled across off, gets a length ball too close to him and was cramped. Looked to tuck it away, eked out an underedge that rolls behind the stumps. And then thanked the heavens, with glove-pointing-to-sky gesture

6

Morris to Rahul, SIX, that wasn't off the middle. Swivelled into the pull but failed to onquer the boune. Off the top-edge off this pull and fine leg through he had a hane. Only that he didn't. Sparrowed right over him running bakward to get into a position

4

to Rahul, FOUR, now the sweep. Plays it against the turn, did well with his wrists to tame the bounce and barrels it down through fine leg

4

to Rahul, FOUR, you can play that in pipe-and-slippers mood. Such a rank bad long hop. Dropped short enough and Rahul was back in a jiffy. Swiped his bat and pulled it away wide of mid-wicket to bring the 50-run stand

4

to Kohli, FOUR, a salivating shot. Overpitched from the arrowing arm of , yes, but Kohli was punctual with his front foot movement and powers the drive through covers. "Master placer," as Hayden calls him on air

4

Yadav to Kohli, FOUR, ah. Too good. Digests a hint of width outside off by opening his bat and nudging one all the way to the third man fence. On a scale of deftness to power, Kohli will feature everywhere

W

to Rahul, out Bowled!! This is surreal, well almost. Rahul was drawn forward by the length on that but it wasn't as short as Rahul anticipated. Managed to ride it somehow cramped, and then skewed it off the inside half of the splice. The ball backspins and Rahul tries to hurry back in.. the ball is quicker.. looks to be missing the leg-stump but the ricochet off the bat hits the pitch, spins, loops up and takes the leg-stump. Beat that. Rahul b 38(23) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Kohli, FOUR, and Kohli shows how. Always does. Gets a similar leg-side fullish delivery, turns around quick and kicks his back leg in air to power this clip through backward square leg. 43 runs in 42 balls needed

6

to Watson, SIX, Jayant Yadav at long-on! Hops high to catch it, couldn't and tips it over the ropes. If that was a bad effort, then Santa Claus exists. A mistimed slog from Watson this was, Jayant might have been a tad late into his jump but it was high, let me tell you

W

to Watson, out Caught by S Billings!! And just as it looked easy, here's a wicket. Delayer or a game-changer, we shall see. Watson opts for the slog-sweep, looked to have timed it well but couldn't impart enough fuel to clear this big ground. Straight to deep mid-wicket. Watson c S Billings b 14(18) [6s-1]

4

to Binny, FOUR, Zaheer has a poker face on - doesn't know how to react. Leg-stumpish line, might have been the googly, Binny waits, keeps his eyes on the ball and shuffles around crouched to lap it over to the fine leg fence

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, 10th fifty-plus score of this season for Virat Kohli. This milestone is getting more routine than my procrastinations. Or my Sunday alarm snoozes. Hops high to ride the bounce and tucks it to deep mid-wicket to trouble the statisticians

4

to Binny, FOUR, scores level. Whips this over mid-wicket, the straighter line allowing him to do so, and powers it away. Only one run, BLR fans

4

to de Kock, FOUR, with fine leg inside the circle, you cannot afford to bowl that straight. overcompensates and slips one down leg, tickled away fine

D

to de Kock, 1 run, in the air and just dipped in front of a diving Jordan. QDK had plenty of width on this short of length delivery and he looked to flay it behind backward point. Skews off the outside edge as he is undone by the extra bounce. The fielder at backward point dives full length to his left, but it just eluded him by a couple of inches

W

to Rishabh Pant, out Caught by Rahul!! There you go! BLR are jubilant, the crowd go wild too. Not sure, if they are supporting their home side. landed it on a perfect length and got appreciable movement away from the left-hander. Too good for Rishabh Pant who hops and flirts - Only to feed a healthy outside edge to KL Rahul, who collects and screams in delight. Rishabh Pant c Rahul b 1(2)

4

to de Kock, FOUR, ah ha! Elegant stuff from Quinton. He likes this opposition, ain't it? Sees the full ball swoop in around his arc and throws his willow into a free-flowing drive, straight past the bowler

6

to de Kock, SIX, splendid! Backs away slightly and creates enough room to smoke this pitched up delivery high and over the long-off fence. Timed to perfection...

4

to de Kock, FOUR, clever stuff from QDK! Shuffles across and converts this off-stump delivery into a leg-sidish one as he clips one crisply to the fine leg fence

6

to Nair, SIX, talent! That's the only word I could get for this eye-pleasing stroke. Watto decides to test Nair by digging it short; Nair is up for it though, sees the width and ramps it over a helpless third man

W

to Nair, out Caught by Kohli!! There's the posterboy of Indian cricket and the crowd are loving it. Boy! What commitment! Have to give to Virat Kohli, the way he ran back from mid-off, keeping his eyes on the ball and plucking it over his right shoulder. Lemme tell you: It wasn't the easiest of catches, but Kohli certainly made it look like one. Nair takes a step forward and chipped it in the air with a loft. Hit off the splice and Virat never gave up. Nair c Kohli b 11(10) [6s-1]

6

to Samson, SIX, that's a bazooka! "Biggest hit I've seen in this ground" admits Haydos in the comm. box. Simple cricket from Sanju Samson - Steps down, gets to the pitch and manufactures a 96-metre six over long-on

4

to de Kock, FOUR, short and that's been smashed! Binny, from deep backward square, throws himself into a desperate dive but the stroke had some immense power. Kohli too tried to put brakes but running in from mid-wicket, but all that effort ends in vain

4

to Samson, FOUR, drops it short and Samson ain't sparing that. Rocks back and mauls a pull through mid-wicket

W

to Samson, out Caught by Rahul!! Sanju Samson isn't happy with the decision. Did it come off the bat? Not sure. Will confirm once the replays are out. It was a genuine legspinner that turned away from the right-hander. Shorter in length which enticed Samson to glide it towards third man with an open bat face. Rahul snaffles it and goes up straightaway, the umpire's finger goes up in a flash too. Someone send a truck to take Samson to the dressing room! He just doesn't want to leave. Replays show there wasn't any bat involved. Costly error? Samson c Rahul b 17(12) [4s-1 6s-1]

W

to S Billings, out Caught by Gayle!! "Would you believe it? Chris Gayle has dived" goes Ian Bishop on air. Oh jeez! It's a bonzer of a catch according to Chris Gayle's fielding standards. Short and not that wide to be spanked. Billings rises on his toes and seeks to flay it past backward point with an uppish cut. Slices it off the outer half and Gayle.....Dives full length to his right and gobbles it air-borne. Woof! Those bucket hands I tell you. S Billings c Gayle b 4(6)

D

to Negi, 1 run, dropped by Aravind. A slower bumper outside off, Negi looks to ramp it over third man. Flew off the toe-end and Aravind had all the time in the world to settle himself under that. Moves forward swiftly, gets both hands but couldn't cling on. Hands-on-head moment for Chris ...

OT

to de Kock, 1 run, full and dipping in around off, QDK plays with an angled bat as he dinks one towards backward point. With that, he records yet another fifty in this T20 League. Whaadday player!

D

to Negi, 1 run, that's been biffed past the bowler. In fact nutmegged. "No children for him later in the life" goes Scotty-funky-Styris on air. ROFL moment. Negi threw the kitchen sink at this length delivery and jeez! It went at some pace, takes an evasive action and lets the ball pass through his legs. He expected the ball to come a lot quicker and was trying to protect, well the all important box area, but it gently skipped him

W

to Negi, out Caught by de Villiers!! AB doesn't drop many, doesn he? A fuller flighted delivery following a backing away Pawan Negi. He came down the pitch and wanted to loft it inside out over extra cover. Came off the toe-end and picked AB at long-off. Negi c de Villiers b 6(12)

W

to Brathwaite, out Caught by Watson!! Is he out? The umpires have decided to go upstairs. The referral is for a bump ball. It's a fair delivery, looks like it came off the thick outside edge. Yep! The replays confirm the same and Brathwaite has to walk back. The telly ump. confirms the same. Please have a look at 's bowling figures - Did he borrow Shane Warne's fingers today? It was very full and wider of off, lures Brathwaite into squeezing it hard. He plays it off the back foot and ends up slicing it. Watto at backward point nestles it inches above the turf. Brathwaite c Watson b 1(2)

4

to de Kock, FOUR, and QDK keeps churning out runs sans any fuss. Pitched and there for the taking, de Kock obliges as he leans into a classy cover drive through extra cover, all the way!

W

to de Kock, out Caught by Jordan!! QDK's gone? Looks like has overstepped. Looks touch and go, where's the point of first landing? It looks like he's landed on the line - which belongs to the umpire. "The benefit of doubt might go to the bowler" chirps Sanjay Manjrekar on air. "Why would you be an umpire" retorts Hayden. The TV ump. is trying numerous angles. Someone freeze the clock please! And here comes the verdict - He is O-U-T. de Kock waltzes down the pitch and goes through with the attempted loft. Didn't get to the pitch of the delivery and didn't time it well either. Jordan from long-off runs forward and consumes it. de Kock c Jordan b 60(52) [4s-5 6s-1]

4

to C Morris, FOUR, he connects this time. Unleashes the reverse sweep to a tossed up delivery which landed on a length. Well-timed and placed wide of a diving lone slip

4

to C Morris, FOUR, slower short ball outside off, Morris waits....Hops inside the crease and connects sweetly with his uppish ramp, a couple of bounces and into the third man fence

4

Abdulla to C Morrs, FOUR, nnovatve from Chrs Morrs! He gets nto nce poston early as he reverse s(lap)weeps a qucker one wth the turn, perced the gap between backward pont and short thrd man

W

to C Morris, out Jayant Yadav Run Out!! 1 run completed. Dipping full toss at the stumps, Morris clears his front leg and looks to mow one through mid-wicket. Slices it off the outside edge over cover and there was never a double in it. Jayant Yadav doesn't even watch his partner, just keeps his head down and runs (for the team's cause obviously). Chahal pings a throw to KL Rahul who was waiting behind the stumps. Whips the bails off and churns out a cheeky grin. Jayant Yadav run out (Chahal/Rahul) 5(7)
