Auckland won by 7 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

1.5

Bates to Gambhir, OUT, Incredible catch from Martin Guptill! This is a real stunner. The ball moves off the seam again and Gambhir gets a leading edge, trying to work it to the on side. The ball pops up and Guptill dives to his left and snatches it above the turf

G Gambhir c Guptill b Bates 5 (9m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Kolkata Knight Riders 10/1   MS Bisla 5* (2b 1x4)   MD Bates 0.5-0-4-1

8.4

Hira to Bisla, OUT, relief for Hira. Bisla came down the track tried to smash this over long off, but mistimes it horribly and Anaru Kitchen completes a straightforward catch.

MS Bisla c Kitchen b Hira 38 (40m 24b 6x4 1x6) SR: 158.33

Kolkata Knight Riders 72/2   BB McCullum 24* (20b 2x4 1x6)   RM Hira 1.4-0-22-1

9.2

Azhar Mahmood to Kallis, OUT, great start from Mahmood. Goes wide of the crease and bowls a back-of-a-length delivery that is angled right into Kallis. The batsman offers a defensive prod and the ball takes the outside edge and is snapped up close to the turf by Lou Vincent at first slip. Good catch there.

JH Kallis c Vincent b Azhar Mahmood 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 72/3   BB McCullum 24* (22b 2x4 1x6)   Azhar Mahmood 0.2-0-0-1

9.3

Azhar Mahmood to Tiwary, OUT, And it gets better for Mahmood! A hint of outswing there and Tiwary tries to work that to the leg side and offers a leading edge. Simple catch for Mahmood. Auckland have now taken three wickets for no runs and have charged into this game after that partnership between Bisla and McCullum

MK Tiwary c & b Azhar Mahmood 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 72/4   BB McCullum 24* (22b 2x4 1x6)   Azhar Mahmood 0.3-0-0-2

14.3

Azhar Mahmood to McCullum, OUT, huge wicket here, and Mahmood is having a terrific Champions League. Fuller delivery wide of off stump, McCullum drives at it with an angled bat and gets an outside edge to the keeper. He could have done some damage towards the end had he stuck around.

BB McCullum c †Hopkins b Azhar Mahmood 40 (56m 35b 3x4 2x6) SR: 114.28

Kolkata Knight Riders 98/5   Shakib Al Hasan 10* (17b)   Azhar Mahmood 2.3-1-8-3

16.2

Mills to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, full and wide, Shakib backs away too far and manages to only get a toe-end on it. The ball scoops high and deep cover fielder jogs into complete a simple catch. KKR running out of hitters near the death here.

Shakib Al Hasan c de Grandhomme b Mills 15 (27m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

Kolkata Knight Riders 108/6   YK Pathan 2* (6b)   KD Mills 3.2-0-20-1
