9.6 overs (0 Run) No run.
9.5 overs (2 Runs) Two more! Slightly shorter in length again and outside off, this is cut through point. Another couple.
9.4 overs (0 Run) Slower through the air and on off, blocked to the off side.
9.3 overs (0 Run) Under-edge saves Rana! Quicker through the air, Rana tries to play the reverse sweep but gets an under-edge onto the pads. An appeal but turned down.
9.2 overs (2 Runs) Two! Shorter and outside off, this one grips off the surface. Spins away. Rana slashes and does so really hard. It goes off the top edge but since he slashed hard, it goes over point for two.
9.1 overs (1 Run) Tossed up outside off, this is hit through covers for one.
Strategic Time-Out! Kolkata would be the happier of the two sides going into this break even though they have lost two wickets. Shubman Gill has held one end and he has played really well so far. However, he needs to bat deeper into the innings as the wicket is not easy to bat on, especially for new batters coming in. Delhi will have to keep picking up wickets if they are to win this game. They have already spent 6 overs combined of Axar and Ashwin and will have to use their bowling choices smartly.
8.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! That releases the pressure if there was any! On the pads, Rana goes down on one knee and sweeps it behind square on the leg side. Boundary. The last ball spoils the over. 66 needed in 66.
8.5 overs (1 Run) Angled into the pads, this is worked through square leg for one.
8.4 overs (1 Run) On middle, this is worked through mid-wicket for one.
8.3 overs (1 Run) Gill comes down the track and pushes it down to long off for one. He came down to hit the big shot but did not get to the pitch of it.
8.2 overs (1 Run) Now plays the paddle sweep, it is more like a paddle scoop towards fine leg for one.
8.1 overs (0 Run) Rana looks to play the reverse sweep. This is bowled very slow and down the leg side. Rana misses.
7.6 overs (0 Run) Tries to play the reverse sweep, hits it to the man at point. Just 2 from the over, Delhi need many more of these quiet overs to build the scoreboard pressure.
7.5 overs (0 Run) Again! Gives it air and lands it on off, it is kept out.
7.4 overs (0 Run) Angles it into the off pole line, defended.
7.3 overs (1 Run) On middle, this is worked towards square leg for one.
7.2 overs (0 Run) Floats it up on off, Rana blocks.
7.1 overs (1 Run) This one stays low! Shorter and outside off, it does not bounce a lot. Gill guides it towards point for one.
6.6 overs (1 Run) Loopy ball, on leg. Shubman Gill flicks it through mid-wicket for a run. 8 from the over, 76 needed off 78 balls.
6.5 overs (0 Run) Floated, around off. Shubman Gill pushes it back to the bowler.
6.4 overs (6 Runs) SIX! Just over the long on fielder! Tossed up, on off. Shubman Gill looks to slog-sweep but it goes off the toe end of the bat and in the air towards long on. Steven Smith there jumps to take the catch but the ball probably brushes his fingers and goes over the rope.
6.3 overs (0 Run) A tad short, outside off. Shubman Gill cuts hard but finds the point fielder.
6.2 overs (0 Run) Flatter ball, on off. Shubman Gill pushes it back to the bowler.
6.1 overs (1 Run) Tossed up, on middle. Nitish Rana works it to long on for a run.
Ravichandran Ashwin is back on.
5.6 overs (1 Run) Sliding down the leg side, Rana tries to flick but misses. It goes off his pads to short fine leg and they pinch a leg bye. Kolkata are 44/2 at the end of the Powerplay, 84 needed off 84 balls!
Nitish Rana walks out to bat.
5.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! Avesh Khan is ecstatic. This is another big wicket for Delhi as Rahul Tripathi is an attacking batsman. Clever bowling by Khan. He lets out a slower one on a length outside off, at 123.7 kph. Rahul fails to read the variation and is early into his shot. He chips it tamely to the left of mid off and Steven Smith moves across swiftly to complete the catch. Delhi need to keep taking wickets to stay in the hunt.
5.4 overs (1 Run) Short and around off, again Shubman Gill walks down the track and pulls it powerfully over mid-wicket. Only a run this time.
5.3 overs (1 Run) Back of a length, around off, Rahul Tripathi punches it on the up to deep cover for one. His intent has been very positive!
5.2 overs (1 Run) A low full toss outside off, Gill pushes it in the gap at covers for a single.
5.1 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! What a shot! Fancy footwork from Shubman Gill. He runs down the track, the length is short and around off, Gill powers it over mid-wicket for a fantastic boundary.
