  Kolkata Knight Riders innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MS Bisla c de Villiers b Mbhalati 27 11 14 3 2 192.85
2.5 the mini assault is over, Mbhalati has got his man, Bisla looks to thrash this back of length ball over the off side, he can only get it as far as extra cover where CJ de Villiers takes a diving catch 32/1
View dismissal G Gambhir* c Wiese b van der Merwe 44 63 36 4 1 122.22
15.1 top-edges a sweep, Wiese takes a brilliantly judged catch at the backward square-leg boundary, Gambhir's slowdown has hurt him as he tries to force the pace 132/4
View dismissal BB McCullum c Behardien b de Villiers 36 25 20 3 3 180.00
8.2 ah, and there's the brainless shot from McCullum. Rarely far away. Runs down the pitch again, but the ball is back of a length, and he decides to go through with the shot anyway, playing a pull shot. He can't time that and it ends in the hands of long on. He was going well, but you have to say, that was a poor option 95/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c van der Merwe b Wiese 18 22 20 1 0 90.00
14.2 goes for it again, this time caught by van der Merwe in nearly the same spot, the fielder stood still right at the rope, Kallis walks off 129/3

  Titans innings (target: 189 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal H Davids b Kallis 13 11 9 1 1 144.44
2.6 bowled him! Kallis gets one to keep low, and uproots the off stump. Davids was expecting another short one, takes a step back and is in a woeful position to play that ball 24/1
View dismissal JA Rudolph c Narine b Iqbal Abdulla 25 37 24 2 0 104.16
8.1 Rudolph's innings ends and the Titans are crumbling here. Advances to that one and tries that chip shot again, but hits it straight to the square leg fielder. 51/4
View dismissal HG Kuhn b Balaji 10 20 14 1 0 71.42
7.4 127 kph, wide of the crease again and once more Kuhn can't deal with the line. Plays inside that one and the ball crashes into off stump. Not the most venomous delivery, but you suspect the angle undid Kuhn 51/2
View dismissal M van Jaarsveld* c McCullum b Balaji 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
7.5 two in two! Again he goes wide-ish and angles in, and again the batsman plays inside the line. Van Jaarsveld edges that and it's swallowed at slip. Balaji on a hat trick and KKR are surging here 51/3
View dismissal F Behardien c †Bisla b Balaji 8 8 8 0 0 100.00
9.5 he's got an edge on that one. It was short, outside off stump and Behardien flashed hard at it. There was a noise and ball nicking bat was the only thing it could have been. Balaji having a blinder 60/5
View dismissal D Wiese st †Bisla b Iqbal Abdulla 5 18 7 0 0 71.42
12.4 Wiese had to do something here, and but he's been well beaten by Abdulla in the flight. Wiese advances, but Abdulla pulls back the length and it breaks away to beat Wiese's bat. Simple stumping 72/7
View dismissal RE van der Merwe b Balaji 7 6 9 1 0 77.77
11.3 timber! And Balaji has four. Van der Merwe shuffles to off stump and tries the over-the-shoulder scoop, but Balaji is full and straight and he takes out leg stump 70/6
View dismissal CJD de Villiers b Tiwary 4 14 10 0 0 40.00
15.2 fuller legspinner, drags it on to the stumps, big smile from Tiwari 82/8
View dismissal AC Thomas st †Bisla b Tiwary 6 11 11 0 0 54.54
15.5 turns a mile, easy stumping for Bisla, all smiles as Tiwari picks up his second wicket in the over 83/9
View dismissal ER Links b Narine 1 5 6 0 0 16.66
16.4 beautiful quicker ball, rushes past the slogging bat, picks up his first wicket, and this game is over, Kolkata get a consolation victory, Titans' net run-rate takes a big beating 89/10
