5.3 Stoinis to Raina, OUT
Slower ball and Raina holes out! He had stepped away from leg stump, looking to make room to hit over mid-off or extra cover. He had to reach for the ball, and played too early, and ended up scooping it to Johnson running back from mid-on to complete a very well-judged catch

0.6 Sandeep Sharma to McCullum, OUT
Stumped, off a fast bowler! That was excellent stuff. We all knew McCullum would jump out of his crease at some point, and Sandeep pulls his length back just a bit and gets the ball to shape away. McCullum pokes at the ball, which swerves past his outside edge, and he’s stranded a long way down when Saha whips off the bails

11.6 Bravo to Miller, OUT
Now he’s top of the pile all by himself. It’s the slower yorker, that’s a bewitching, dipping delivery that Miller plays across and all around. Stunning way to get to 300 T20 wickets, absolutely top delivery
11.4 Bravo to Maxwell, OUT
Yorker, pinpoint, and it crashes into the base of middle and leg as Maxwell, looking to make himself room, misses the ball, looking to stab it through point.
Over 11: 11 runs and a wicket off the over. KXIP 98/2
10.4 Jadeja to Vijay, OUT
Bowled him! Saw Vijay step away to make room for the inside-out chip over the covers, and he dragged his length back a bit and got it to turn just enough to go past the edge and hit middle stump.
Over 10: 5 runs off the over. KXIP 87/1
Over 9: 11 runs and a wicket off the over. KXIP 82/1
8.2 Jadeja to Vohra, OUT
This one skids on from back of a length, and Vohra, looking to work that through the leg side, gets an inside edge into his pad. Jadeja was appealing for lbw at first, but he knew the batsman had hit that, and then he appealed for caught behind as DK ran to his right and grabbed the ball that had popped up off Vohra’s pad.
Over 8: 14 runs off the over. KXIP 71/0
