View dismissal JH Kallis c Takawale b Chahal 43 72 42 2 1 102.38
15.2 there seems no end to Knight Riders' troubles! Now it's Kallis' turn, who seemed alone in doing all the scoring.. He tries to whack this inside out, with the spin, to the stands. The idea was right, the execution wasn't as he failed to get distance on this.. The catch is comfortably taken at deep extra cover 107/5
View dismissal G Gambhir* lbw b Starc 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
0.3 no he can't! Gambhir is gone first ball. That is some record to have.. Three ducks in a row for Gambhir. This is full, fast and hitting middle and leg stump. Gambhir is too slow to bring his bat down and is caught plumb in front. He falls over as he tries to flick it 1/1
View dismissal MK Pandey c Kohli b Morkel 5 4 3 1 0 166.66
1.2 leading edge to cover point now! It's RCB's bowlers who are making all the positive moves. This is so much better than the first delivery - fuller on off, with some shape on it. Pandey looks to play a loose push towards mid-on but closes the face too early.. Kohli takes a simple catch 10/2
View dismissal CA Lynn c de Villiers b Aaron 45 46 31 3 3 145.16
11.3 that's the end of Lynn as he slaps a length delivery straight to AB at long-off. Lynn had slowed down a bit in the last few overs and he didn't really time it as well as he would have liked. 90/3
View dismissal YK Pathan c Kohli b Aaron 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
11.5 and that's two in three balls for Aaron! Just like Lynn, Yusuf tries to hammer the ball towards long-on, but he fares even worse.. He could only get it as far as Kohli at mid-off. The investment on Yusuf keeps going sour... When will they divest their stocks on him? He has scored a solitary fifty for them in 46 innings 90/4
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Starc b Aaron 22 26 18 0 1 122.22
17.1 Whoa! how far has that gone! not too far unfortunately for Uthappa. he made room, got a slower ball, lifted it towards deep midwicket and looked like he made a good connection... But that went straight into the bucket hands of Starc 129/6
SA Yadav not out 24 23 18 1 1 133.33
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c Morkel b Starc 4 14 5 0 0 80.00
19.6 tries to be cheeky but pays the price... He moves across the stumps to flick the full delivery fine, but only lobs it to short fine leg fielder 150/7

View dismissal PA Patel c Lynn b Vinay Kumar 21 36 19 3 0 110.52
8.1 now it's Parthiv's turn.. He is beaten by the extra bounce on this pitch.. Parthiv wanted to clip it to the leg side, but this slower delivery got big on him and the leading edge just popped up for the cover fielder.. 67/2
View dismissal YV Takawale lbw b Kallis 40 33 28 8 0 142.85
7.4 finally KKR strike! This was the offcutter and Takawale looked to work it away on the leg side, got hit right in front of the middle stump.. Easy decision for the umpire 67/1
View dismissal V Kohli* b Narine 31 36 23 4 0 134.78
15.5 that's a corker from Narine! It has to be a very good ball to beat someone in the form of his life and it is. This is tossed up further, spins in and beats the inside edge of the bat, flicks the front pad and then takes the off bail .. 122/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Pathan b UT Yadav 31 49 34 2 1 91.17
18.4 and he's gone... ironically to a ball that he timed so well.. Probably his best connection of the day.. It was full and wide and he crashed it over point, but straight to deep point..Gambhir is pumped 141/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Lynn b Vinay Kumar 11 23 12 1 0 91.66
19.4 this is a blinder! this is madness.. this is the maddest baddest ever catch.. AB did what AB does.. Whacks the short of length delivery to deep midwicket, where Lynn lines himself up for the catch.. but he slips.. Despite that, he somehow straightens his body on the ground, keeps an eye on the ball, arches his body back and takes a catch sitting down.. freakish catch.. KKR are stealing this one.. Lynn is a hero.. watch that catch to believe that.. 145/5
