4.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Neatly done on this occasion!
4.5 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Not in any control of that shot! Shardul Thakur bends his back to send across a short ball on middle and leg, Venkatesh Iyer tries to pull but it takes the top edge and flies over MS Dhoni. He jumps to get fingertips on this but still, it races behind for a boundary.
4.4 overs (1 Run) Angling into the batsman, fuller and around off, Gill plays a lovely on-drive but finds the fielder at the edge of the circle at mid on. A single is taken.

4.1 overs (0 Run) Thakur begins with a very full ball around off, Shubman Gill jumps down the track, yorks himself and does well to dig it out at the last moment.
Shardul Thakur is into the attack.
3.6 overs (2 Runs) Around leg on a length, Iyer uses his feet and whips it through square leg for a couple. 12 from the over and Kolkata have raced to 36 in four overs.
3.5 overs (0 Run) Back of a length outside off, Iyer slaps it off his back foot but finds Moeen Ali at backward point.
3.4 overs (0 Run) Play and a miss! Josh Hazlewood follows the batsman down the leg side with a length ball, Iyer swings and misses.
3.3 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Venkatesh Iyer is picking his spots and finding the gaps. This one is on a length, around off and angling away, Iyer keeps his balance on the back foot and whacks it through cover-point.
3.2 overs (1 Run) Angling into the batsman, Gill pushes it towards mid on for a run.
3.1 overs (4 Runs) IN THE AIR... FOUR! Did that carry? Short in length around off, Shubman Gill advances down the track and flat-bats it towards wide mid off. Shardul Thakur runs forward, puts in a dive but it drops just below his outstretched hands and sneaks past him. It races away after that for a boundary.
3.1 overs (1 Run) Wide! Wrong line from Josh Hazlewood. Starts the over with a delivery down the leg side, Gill tries flicking but misses.
2.6 overs (0 Run) Drifting down the leg side, on a length, from 'round the wicket, Iyer fails to flick. It probably brushes his pads on its way to Dhoni. No signal from the umpire.
2.5 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Once again Venkatesh Iyer follows up the dot ball with a boundary. Gloriously done again. Fuller and around off, Iyer unfurls a lovely drive through extra cover for a boundary. He is already punishing Chennai here.
2.4 overs (0 Run) Well bowled! Clever change in pace and length. Chahar goes fuller and just outside off at 120 kph, Iyer is deceived completely and fails to put the bat on the ball.

1.3 overs (0 Run) DROPPED! MS Dhoni has put down Venkatesh Iyer, the man in form. How costly will this prove?
