16 Overs | Runs : 121/4 | Run rate : 7.56
015.615.6: Yuzvendra Chahal to Shahrukh Khan, Chahal almost had a 4th! This lands on middle, it pitches, holds in the surface and then grips away. Khan looks to flick it but it goes off the leading edge and lands short of Chahal who dives to his left. End of a brilliant over from Chahal. Probably a match-winning one.
015.515.5: Yuzvendra Chahal to Sarfaraz Khan, OUT! TIMBER! Wow, just wow! That is a tremendous delivery. An absolute beauty! Sarfaraz Khan must be wondering, why him? He is making a comeback into the side, against his former side, he would be wanting to prove a point but gets a gem. This lands around leg. Sarfaraz Khan, however, does not put in a big stride forward and tries to play it out. This lands and then spins away sharply. Goes past the outside edge and hits the off pole.

This lands on middle, it holds its line and also straightens a touch. Agarwal looks to pull but this goes off the top edge over the keeper. Siraj at short third man takes a good catch running to his left.

112.512.3: Yuzvendra Chahal to Mayank Agarwal, Fifty for Mayank Agarwal! A really good innings from him so far. However, he needs to stay there till the end. Just like his skipper did in their last game. He holds the key. Outside off, this is slapped through covers for one.
012.412.3: Yuzvendra Chahal to Mayank Agarwal, WIDE! Another one well wide outside off, Chahal is probably worried as he feels Agarwal will come down the wicket. Left alone.

010.510.5: Shahbaz Ahmed to KL Rahul, OUT! TAKEN! There is the first one. May have come a lot later than Kohli would have liked but they now have a chance to build on this. Not sure if this was needed, having already seen a biggie in this over. KL Rahul comes down the track and Shahbaz Ahmed cleverly bowls it outside off, well outside off we should write. Rahul was made to chase for it. He does go after it but tries to hit it downtown, it goes off the top edge and it is an easy catch to Patel at short third man.

02.52.5: Mohammed Siraj to KL Rahul, NOT OUT! A good review from KL and he survives. Around off, on a length, angling in, KL looks to work this to the leg side but misses and gets hit on the pad. An appeal for LBW from Siraj and the umpire agrees. Rahul does not though as he goes for the review straightaway. Maybe he knew that there was an inside edge there.

07.37.3: Ravi Bishnoi to Devdutt Padikkal, NOT OUT! That comes as a surprise. There was a little spike when the ball passes the bat but really not sure why the umpire has ruled it in the favor of the batter. KL Rahul looks unhappy with that and rightly so. This was full and slanting outside off. Padikkal shuffles across and goes for the reverse sweep but seems to miss it. KL Rahul behind the sticks, pouches it and appeals for it but the umpire is unmoved. They take the review straightaway. Ultra Edge does show a small spike as the ball passes the bat but probably the third umpire felt there is not enough evidence. Devdutt Padikkal survives.
