Over 0.2 Krishnappa Gowtham bowls a tossed up delivery to SP Narine, out Stumped!! Narine didn't bother adjusting to the length, that's not his way anyway and goes through with the shot. A bit of grip off the surface and whizzes past the edge. Easy for Klaasen.

Over 2.1 Krishnappa Gowtham bowls a tossed up delivery to Robin Uthappa, out Caught and Bowled! Uthappa trying to work across the line. The leading edge balloons towards Gowtham who just has to leap a touch from his tall frame to grab the return catch

Over 3.4 Jofra Archer bowls a slower one to Nitish Rana, out Caught by Unadkat!! Rana was to try a weird slog that was never a percentage stroke on this pitch. Only manages to toe-end this high towards mid-on.

Over 7.6 Shreyas Gopal bowls it flat in the air to CA Lynn, out Caught and Bowled! Lynn wanted to work away off the back foot but could only spoon it back to the bowler.

Over 14.2 Jofra Archer good length delivery to Shubman Gill, out Caught by Klaasen!! Gill was backing away, in a bid to slash it through point. Is defeated by the extra bounce and zip. Gets a faint nick and Klaasen does the rest.

Over 17.1 Ben Laughlin good length delivery to Dinesh Karthik, out Caught by Rahane! Karthik was shaping up for a biff across the line, loses his shape and loses his timing as well. Slicing it up in the air towards extra cover.

Over 19.4 Ben Laughlin bowls a pitched up delivery to Javon Searles, out Caught by Jofra Archer!! Searles swung it hard, lost his shape and skied it as far as long-off. Two fielders were converging and Archer completes the catch
