View dismissal R Dravid* b Sharma 2 3 0 0 66.66
1.1 and what a start for him! Full on the mark, Dravid heaves at it and misses and the ball hits the base of middle and off, handing Kolkata and excellent beginning 4/1
View dismissal W Jaffer c Ponting b Dinda 6 16 0 0 37.50
5.2 edged and taken! Dinda strikes again, getting Jaffer chasing another wide one only to hand first slip a neat catch 24/4
View dismissal V Kohli b Dinda 1 5 0 0 20.00
2.2 drags it on! Kohli fails on IPL debut, playing a pull from outside off only to chop the ball onto his stumps, and doesn't young Dinda love it? 9/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Kartik b Agarkar 8 7 0 1 114.28
4.5 and he goes next ball, just pulling the ball to mid-on for an easy catch 24/3
View dismissal CL White c †Saha b Agarkar 6 10 0 0 60.00
8.6 they're falling like ninepins! White is beaten on the drive, inching forward to try and cream the cover off it but instead gets the thinnest of edges through to Saha, who gleefully accepts 43/7
View dismissal MV Boucher c Kartik b Ganguly 7 9 1 0 77.77
7.5 another one bites the dust, as Boucher looks towards midwicket and slogs this one up in the air down towards deep cover-point, where Kartik runs in with his eyes trained on the ball and cups it low in front of him 38/5
View dismissal B Akhil c Ponting b Agarkar 0 2 0 0 0.00
8.2 nothing but slip catching practice! Just comes forward, then opens the face to present Ponting with one into his lap at slip... my old coach from high school used to hand us those kinds of dollies off the face of the bat 38/6
View dismissal AA Noffke run out (Agarkar/†Saha) 9 10 1 0 90.00
11.1 from Ganguly, Agarkar's golden arm! Noffke clips one off his pads to deep backward square leg, from where Agarkar swoops in and fires in a good, flat throw to Saha, who does the rest 57/8
P Kumar not out 18 15 1 2 120.00
View dismissal Z Khan b Ganguly 3 8 0 0 37.50
13.1 cleaned up, Zaheer missing the line completely for off stump to be pegged back and Ganguly runs off in celebration and Ponting runs towards him and the two embrace ... now thats a sight, eh? 70/9
View dismissal SB Joshi c McCullum b Shukla 3 6 0 0 50.00
15.1 all over, and what a mismatch! Joshi mistimes a pull to wide long-off and Kolkata win by 140 runs! 82/10
