Kings XI Punjab 112/2   KD Karthik 4* (2b)

Kings XI Punjab 133/2   KD Karthik 7* (9b)

14.1

Trivedi to Karthik, 1 run, steered to third man for a single

14.4

Trivedi to Karthik, FOUR, there is no surprise in this slower ball. Karthik is standing deep in the crease, waiting, "Come, come". It finally arrives and is pulled for four

14.5

Trivedi to Karthik, FOUR, regulation pace, regulation result, as he cuts this short and wide delivery square of point and fine of third man

14.6

Trivedi to Karthik, FOUR, this is getting ridiculous now! Karthik is down on a knee expecting another slower ball, and scoops it over short fine

15.6

Tait to Karthik, OUT, Tait finally gets a deserved wicket... it's shortish but not wide, and it's fast and bounces more than expected. The edge is taken by the keeper, and then the umpire's finger comes up ever so slowly as Karthik starts to walk and then stops

KD Karthik c †Yagnik b Tait 21 (16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 131.25

Kings XI Punjab 175/3   KD Karthik 21 (16b 3x4)
