Shahbaz Ahmed let Venkatesh Iyer off in a big way as he dropped a bit of a sitter off the bowling of Glenn Maxwell. The Australian all-rounder chucked up an absolute pie, a full toss that Iyer looked to flick around the corner but top edged towards fine leg. Shahbaz was unable to hold on coming forward, but his mistake was not emphatically punished, with Iyer being dismissed for 26 off 30 balls by the inevitable Harshal Patel. KKR remained in the box seat though, particularly when Sunil Narine came in and quickly smashed three huge sixes.
