3.3 Shoaib Shaikh pulls off a stunner! Langeveldt gets the ball to kick up and Ojha pokes his bat out for a half-hearted cut and gets a thick outside edge, the ball drifts away from Shaikh's right but he leaps and pulls off the catch one handed 28/3
View dismissal RJ Quiney c †Shaikh b Langeveldt 1 2 0 0 50.00

View dismissal SA Asnodkar run out (Dinda) 4 6 1 0 66.66
2.5 from Dinda, awesome fielding by Dinda! Asnodkar hops to fend off a delivery aimed at his body and the ball drops in front of silly point, Asnodkar sets off, Ojha does the same but changes his mind, a confused Asnodkar turns around and tries to head back but Dinda sprints, dives and in one motion affects the direct hit, no need for the third umpire 28/2
View dismissal NK Patel c Ganguly b Langeveldt 14 22 1 0 63.63
9.2 Ganguly takes the catch at mid-on! Patel fails to control the pull off a short ball and the ball is skied to Ganguly's left, he covers a bit of ground and falls over after taking the catch 59/5
View dismissal J Botha b Agarkar 8 6 2 0 133.33
5.3 timber! Botha walks across his stumps to force it through the on side but he swings too early and gets a thick onside edge which cannons onto off and middle stumps 42/4
View dismissal YK Pathan run out (Shukla) 9 15 1 0 60.00
10.5 from Shukla, it gets worse for Rajasthan! Yusuf takes a few paces down the pitch and squirts out a full delivery down to silly point, there's hesitation in the running but Yusuf sets off anyway, Dinda gathers the ball and breaks the stumps at the stro\iker's end and Yusuf, who turns around, is nowhere near the crease 62/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja b Sarkar 14 19 1 0 73.68
17.2 makes room and the bowler fires it on the stumps, the ball just flicks the pads slightly and flattens the legstump 92/8
View dismissal T Henderson run out (Hussey) 0 1 0 0 0.00
11.2 Agarkar to Jadeja, terrible cricket from Rajasthan and Kolkata are loving this! He tucks it down to midwicket and sets off for a non-existent single, Henderson was always struggling and he wasn't quick enough for Hussey's direct hit 62/7
View dismissal SK Warne* b Agarkar 18 29 1 0 62.06
19.3 the over gets better for Agarkar! He fires an inswinging yorker which just hits the edge of the base of the legstump and the bail takes its own sweet time to get off the groove, Warne didn't pick the yorker 99/9

View dismissal BB McCullum* lbw b Singh 9 4 2 0 225.00
1.1 plumb! Man do we have a twist here? The ball lands close to the cracks on the surface just short of a good length and shoots through much lower than McCullum expects it to, he swings and misses and gets caught on the thigh in front of middle stump, his legs were bent at the point of contact 9/2
View dismissal SC Ganguly c Jadeja b MM Patel 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.6 Ganguly takes a couple of paces down the pitch and makes room to slice it over the off side but he only manages hitting it straight to Jadeja at point who cups it and falls over backwards 9/1
View dismissal BJ Hodge st †Ojha b Botha 6 8 1 0 75.00
7.1 brilliant stuff by Ojha! Hodge drops the ball in front of silly point and takes off but the ball spins backwards to the keeper, Ojha flicks it back at the stumps and Hodge's bat was over the line but in the air, the third umpire takes a look 30/4
View dismissal Yashpal Singh c Quiney b MM Patel 6 20 0 0 30.00
4.6 Yashpal's misely ends and Rajasthan are really making a game of this! Munaf bangs it in short outside off and an under pressure Yashpal can't resist the upper cut, the ball dips in front of Quiney but he times his dive well and pulls it off inches from the turf, the extra ball has worked to Rajasthan's favour 21/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey c NK Patel b Botha 9 13 2 0 69.23
9.1 The KKR choke continues! Botha drops it short and gets some extra bounce, Hussey bends his knee for a front foot pull and the ball lands down Neeraj Patel's throat at deep midwicket 37/5
LR Shukla not out 48 46 3 2 104.34
View dismissal SS Shaikh run out (Botha/Pathan) 6 7 1 0 85.71
11.3 Botha to Shukla, what on earth is happening today? Shukla tucks it in front of midwicket and there never really should have been a run there, Shaikh charges halfway down, turns back but the throw is fired to Botha who breaks the stumps, Shaikh's quite upset with his partner as he walks back. In fact Shukla didn't even want the single 45/6
