4

Sharma to Narine, FOUR, and that is an usual sight. Sharma throws it full outside off, might have swung a bit. But how does it matter, Narine flays the drive uppishly through cover

4

Sharma to Narine, FOUR, back to back now! Another fuller ball and Narine this time lofts the drive, not much of followthrough. Just an extension of elbow and off she goes, one bounce over the ropes at extra cover

4

Sharma to Chris Lynn, FOUR, swings a bit outside off. Chris Lynn takes that into account, clears the leg and cracks the drive over cover

4

Henry to Chris Lynn, FOUR, Henry might have had a wicket off the first ball this season. But the wicket-keeper and the slip fielder both are undecided. Nobody went for it. Length delivery and Chris Lynn goes hard at it, outside edges that flies between the two men behind the stumps

4

Henry to Chris Lynn, FOUR, Henry's pacy puts Chris Lynn in tangle once again but there is no one at fine leg. The man is in the ring. Chris Lynn was hurried by the bumper and top edged the pull. And because he throws his bat so hard, these edges fly over the ring

4

Sharma to Chris Lynn, FOUR, there's a long on this time but it has gone too straight. Sharma once again teases his luck with a fuller ball. Chris Lynn, who was backing away, on-drives this one with a loft. Finds the fence with ease

4

Sharma to Narine, FOUR, slower ball but Narine waits, as if he knew what was coming, and drives uppishly over extra cover. Not off the middle but does the job for him

4

Sharma to Narine, FOUR, the best we have seen so far? Maybe! Is making room to this length ball, the length is just short of a length and hence decides to play a straight-bat punch. Times it well to beat mid-off to his right

W

Sharma to Narine, out Bowled!! Round the wicket slower ball. Narine knows what is coming, waits and decides to swing across the line. Is still early on the shot and misses it completely. The stumps get shattered off this off-cutter. Punjab get a window and the breather they needed desperately. Narine b Sharma 18(10) [4s-4]

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, throws it wide outside off. Chris Lynn keeps his front leg out of the equation and drives to the deep cover fence

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, has to wait a bit as the length is a touch shorter. Cuts and finds the gap past a diving extra cover, another four

4

Henry to Chris Lynn, FOUR, only with a man of steel-forearms can do it. Short ball outside off, Chris Lynn is committed on the pull but the ball does not quite come with pace. He does not flinch, goes with the pull and fetches it from outside off, almost clears the fence at deep mid-wicket

6

Henry to Chris Lynn, SIX, and now a full toss to cap off the misery. Swings across the line and sends it over the deep square leg fence. Went high and handsome

OT

Tewatia to Chris Lynn, 1 run, tossed up ball around off, Chris Lynn drives to deep extra cover to bring up his third T20 League fifty

W

Tewatia to Gambhir, out Caught by Shaun Marsh!! And he is gone. Wrong 'un does the trick. It is a little bemusing to see why did Gambhir go for the big hit instead of Chris Lynn! The boundaries were not coming for a while now and Gambhir departs trying to up the ante. Slogs and gets the height on it. Not quite the distance he wanted. Marsh settles under it at deep mid-wicket. Gambhir c Shaun Marsh b Tewatia 8(18)

W

Tewatia to Uthappa, out Caught by Axar!! Axar takes a beauty diving to his right at deep mid-wicket. Googly and Uthappa goes with the turn. But this is the first ball he is facing. Not sure what was he thinking. Does not quite time it and hits in the air towards the right of the man in the deep. Axar attacks the ball and dives in time to get his fingers underneath the ball. Uthappa c Axar b Tewatia 0(1)

6

Singh to Chris Lynn, SIX, boom, there you go. Slightly short outside off, and even though it's turning away, Lynn has the room to smack it over long-on. And then the gymnasium and those arms take over. Give the ball wings. Sails over

4

Tewatia to M Pandey, FOUR, geez, I have jinxed it, haven't I? Has the readymade room made and mows it off the front foot, right between long-on and deep mid-wicket

6

to Chris Lynn, SIX, gosh. Nothing to add. Makes room to a length that has been slightly shortened and Nadals it over long-off. And he says he's not 100 percent..

4

Sharma to Chris Lynn, FOUR, the partnership between Chris Lynn and M Pandey is now 50+. caps the over with a poor, poor ball. Overpitches at his normal pace - must have been about 135kmph - and Lynn flays him back over his head. The shot was on. Andcredit to Lynn for reading the change of pace, for Sharma was on the slower side for all the over but this. 37 off the last 3

W

Henry to M Pandey, out Caught by Axar!! This is big. What hoodwinked Pandey was the length - full and on leg-stump. Guess he had read the slower ball, for he was waiting with his stance open but the length was such that he couldn't get right under it. So ends up scooping it high in the air. So high that Axar could sprint to his left at deep mid-wicket and station himself into a simple catch. M Pandey c Axar b Henry 18(23) [4s-1]

W

Henry to Chris Lynn, out Chris Lynn Run Out!! 1 run completed. Korbo - yes. Lorbo - just there. Jeetbo - iffy, now. This is a death blow, or feels like it. Lynn had the room made, swats at a back of a length delivery and hacks it to deep mid-wicket. And then coaxes de Grandhomme into a second. Is running back to the danger end. Axar darts a throw back to Saha; he's having that kinda day. He's having a field. On the bounce to Saha, who takes the bails off and Lynn is just short. Wow. Just the wicket PUN needed. Chris Lynn run out (Axar/Saha) 84(52) [4s-8 6s-3]

4

Henry to de Grandhomme, FOUR, slightly slower in the early 130s and de Grandhomme has picked him. Slices it square on the off-side and manages to place it wide of the deep point fielder. 29 off the last two

W

Sharma to Y Pathan, out Caught by Maxwell!! Chuck the '13 Reasons Why' on Netflix -- here's one reason why Sharma is so good. Pathan takes on the pacer.. like he would a spinner. And pays the penalty. Pathan uses his feet, goes for the big wind-up but this is a slower ball, needed more biceps. Pathan doesn't have it. Holes out to long-on. Perfection. Auction 's knuckles in the next auction, will you? Y Pathan c Maxwell b Sharma 2(3)

6

Sharma to Woakes, SIX, back of a length delivery, slower again and Woakes is out of his crease, weighed on front foot to whack this out. And he does. Over deep mid-wicket. 22 off 8

4

Yadav to Gptill, FOR, first bondary of the evening. A loose ball down leg, Gptill moves across slightly and ndges it very fine into the fine leg fence

4

to Vohra, FOUR, doesn't get away this time. Seam up delivery from a shortish length, Vohra punches it handsomely through the covers. Finds the gap and the ball races away

4

to Vohra, FOUR, cheeky and effective. Uses the slightest of widths outside off and opens his bat face to guide it wide of the keeper into the third man fence

4

Yadav to Vohra, FOR, slower delivery and Vohra takes fll toll of it. The attemped leg-break ends p right in the slot for Vohra. The batsman jogs down and heaves it over mid-wicket for a bondary

4

Yadav to Vohra, FOR, wow! Sperb shot. Vohra spots the slower delivery well otside off and carves it over point. There is none stopping that

W

Yadav to Vohra, ot Caght by thappa!! mesh Yadav persists with the short ball stff and that pays dividends for him. Removes the dangeros Vohra with a 139kph boncer on leg. Vohra didn't go whole-heartedly against it on his hook shot. He shffled across a bit and ended p giving a simple catch to thappa. It came off the glove. Vohra c thappa b Yadav 25(16) [4s-4]

W

to Guptill, out Lbw!! A vociferous appeal for lbw and up goes the finger. Guptill isn't happy with the decision. The impact outside off maybe? No. Guptill got low on one knee to play the sweep shot and missed a straight ball. He is struck adjacent to the off-stump. That's crashing onto the stumps. Good call from the umpire. Guptill lbw b 12(16) [4s-1]

4

Grandhomme to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, ah! Streaky, Marsh won't mind though. Seam-up livery on a short of length, probably kept a tad low. Marsh wanted to work it through the on-si and gets an insi edge that elus the leg pole and dribbles away into the fine leg fence

4

Grandhomme to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, that's textbook stuff from Shaun Marsh. Half-volley just outsi off, Marsh leans forward and middles the straight-drive. That's Instagrammable

W

to Shaun Marsh, out Bowled!! Shaun Marsh is clean bowled. Seam-up delivery from from a goodish length that snakes in a tad. Marsh doesn't account for it and attempts the drive. The ball sneaks in beating his inside edge and cannons onto the stumps. Shaun Marsh b 11(10) [4s-2]

6

Grandhomme to Maxwell, SIX, right in the slot. And Maxwell goes into the beast mo. Swings, hard and mighty. Muscles it over long-on

6

Grandhomme to Maxwell, SIX, more of the freebies. A sitter up on the hips and Maxwell couldn't be happier in swishing it around the corner. With all the meat in the timing

4

to Saha, FOUR, the edges too come in. Ah, unfair. bumps it in, gets it at the perfect nagging height and Saha's compulsive pull gets the top edge flying over the keeper. You cannot stop these

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, piles it on. With the width not enough to force matters in the off-side, Maxwell takes it into the other side of the pitch. Another back of a length this from looking to cramp him up for room and responded with a flat bat this time. Barely bothers to keep it down either, gets it in front of the man looking to cut it off at mid-wicket

OT

to Saha, 1 run, the off-break. A room creating punch down to long-off. Brings up the 50-run between the duo

4

to Saha, FOUR, too short. Too wide. Further amplified by Saha backing away violently. Waits on the ball to get close and slaps it through the covers

6

Yadav to Maxwell, SIX, into the clouds. Too good for the multi-pixel cameras to pick this one from the clouds as well. Too short this from Yadav, all the time for Maxwell to rock back, inherit the line and plunder it away. Hacked away to clear the deep mid-wicket fence

6

Yadav to Maxwell, SIX, even longer. Maxwell turning it on here. A scarred ball this - flat, dragged down and real quick. Just the pace required to go for another muscling swat into the favoured cow corner region

W

Yadav to Maxwell, out Caught by Woakes!! The greed. Oh it really is. Brings about his downfall. Tossed up wide, floating googly and inviting Maxwell to take matters into the off-side. And he cannot resist it. Throws his hands out, with a lean and a reach out as he lofts it. Off the toe end and some clean diving at the fence seem to be enough to send him back. Maxwell c Woakes b Yadav 44(25) [4s-1 6s-4]

6

Yadav to Saha, SIX, gets the slog right. Invites him with an airy googly does and Saha throws everything he has into it. Slices it up, slices it high and slices the projectile long enough to take it over long-on

W

Yadav to Saha, wide, out Stumped!! The teaser. And teases Saha back into the pavilion. Keeps up with his wrong 'uns, drifting them wide and slow. Saha obviously with his show of aggression was down and away once again, just that this time even the stretch out to reach the line of the ball turns futile. Robin takes over. The best extra leaked - ever. Saha st Uthappa b Yadav 38(33) [4s-2 6s-1]

W

to Swapnil Singh, out Bowled!! Drags it on. Bends his back does in bumping it in. And it skids on to stay a touch low for the anticipated lined up pull from Swapnil to come out right. Too high in the end and takes the inside edge to light up the night sky with some red again. Punjab falling apart in search of their catapult at the end. Swapnil Singh b 2(2)

4

to Rahul Tewatia, FOUR, for some reason switches to a half volley. Tewatia, waits, buries and meets it with a full-blooded lofted drive through extra cover

4

to Rahul Tewatia, FOUR, spots the slower off-cutter. And ensures to dispatch it away. Tries to fox him with the loopy bouncer here does but a walk across to pull it past the man at short fine does the job

4

to Rahul Tewatia, FOUR, hunts the fence. Much needed this for the Punjabis. Takes it off the pads and brings out the broom as he sweeps it this away
