15.6

Pathan to ten Doeschate, no run, with the new ball, this would have been out. This time it lands on off and doesn't quite bend back enough. Rapped on the pads, appealed and turned down. End of a fine spell from Irfan...

Kolkata Knight Riders 109/5   RN ten Doeschate 2* (4b)

16.3

Yadav to ten Doeschate, 1 wide, wide, too far outside off and called.

17.3

Hopes to ten Doeschate, 1 leg bye, fullish offcutter on middle and coming in, Tiwary plays all over it and it trickles into the off side.

17.5

Hopes to ten Doeschate, FOUR, This could be four, or run out. Rare scenes, RTD drags a short of length ball to deep square leg, where Nagar does well to dive and intercept, but he slides close to the boundary. He then picks up and hurls to the bowler's end as RTD looks to run a third. Hopes relays it to the keeper and RTD is miles short. But replays show Nagar did not stop the boundary cleanly.

17.6

Hopes to ten Doeschate, 1 run, works a single off the pads towards square leg. Kolkata need a big finish here.

Kolkata Knight Riders 128/5   RN ten Doeschate 8* (8b 1x4)

18.1

Morkel to ten Doeschate, 1 run, angling into the pads, RTD quietly works it square for one.

18.4

Morkel to ten Doeschate, SIX, oh boy, I don't think I've seen a ball ever go so high. RTD jumps half forward, swings the bat in a wild circle and jabs the length ball into orbit. The Kotla crowd crinks its collective neck looking into the skies before the satellite begins its descent and lands just a couple of metres over the straight boundary. That got a lot of height, and enough distrance.

18.5

Morkel to ten Doeschate, FOUR, top shot. Morne keeps this full on off stump, inches away from a yorker than ball, and RTD spanks it back down the ground. He stood back in the crease to work the lengths there, and reaped the reward.

18.6

Morkel to ten Doeschate, OUT, Irfan has held another catch! And this one was pretty good too. RTD looks to hoist Morne over the covers this time, and ends up hitting it high into the night. Irfan runs in from deep point and holds on as he tumbles forward.

RN ten Doeschate c Pathan b Morkel 19 (12b 2x4 1x6) SR: 158.33

Kolkata Knight Riders 140/6   RN ten Doeschate 19 (12b 2x4 1x6)
