08.48.4: Rashid Khan to Chris Gayle, OUT! LBW! Rashid strikes in his very first over and it is the big Jamaican, it is the Universe Boss, Chris Gayle! 5th time Rashid has got the better of Gayle and Punjab are in all sorts of trouble here. Floated delivery which is fuller. Gayle leans forward to defend. He misses it completely and the ball hits him on the front pad. A huge appeal follows and umpire Nitin Menon raises his finger. Gayle has a chat with Hooda but they both seem to think Gayle is a goner. The West Indian does not review it and slowly makes the long walk back to the dug out.

07.17.1: Vijay Shankar to Chris Gayle, OUT! RUN OUT! Fantastic piece of work from Warner. He had one stump to aim at and he has hit the bull's eye.

Length ball on off, Gayle taps it to the right of short cover and calls for a quick run. Warner gets to the ball quickly and fires a direct hit from there. Pooran is well short of his crease but the square leg umpire goes upstairs to be 100 percent sure and replays find everything to be perfect.

06.66.6: Khaleel Ahmed to Mayank Agarwal, OUT! CAUGHT! Clean as a whistle!

05.45.4: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Mayank Agarwal, Good length delivery on off, Mayank taps it towards point and comes out for a quick run. Maybe he forgot it is not Rahul but Gayle at the other end so quick singles might not be available. The Universe Boss sends him back quickly.

03.13.1: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to KL Rahul, OUT! TAKEN! Bhuvneshwar strikes! Dangerous KL Rahul has been sent packing early in this game. He wanted to take the bowlers on but perishes. A length ball, it is just outside off, Rahul looks to hammer it down the leg side. He fails to hit it off the middle of the bat and the ball goes uppishly towards the left of Jadhav at mid-wicket. There has been a lot of discussion about KLR's strike rate in this season of the tournament and maybe that played on his mind. A rash shot from him and he falls trying to up the ante.
