Indian Premier League, 33rd match: Delhi Daredevils v Kolkata Knight Riders at Delhi, Apr 28, 2011
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 17 runs
28 April 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Pathan to Kallis, 1 run, and he gets the first one to curve in from well outside off, and kick off from just back of a length at 126 kph. Kallis stands back and guides square


Pathan to Goswami, no run, lovely ball. Irfan special, circa 2003. Comes in with the angle, lands outside off and bends away magically. Better batsmen have fallen to it, but Goswami doesn't edge as he pokes.


Pathan to Goswami, 1 run, this time too straight, ends up on the hips and Goswami tucks it square for one


Pathan to Kallis, no run, Irfan's got that swing going in the first over, comes in drastically and Kallis adjusts to play it back down the track


Pathan to Kallis, 1 run, dropped by Warner, would you believe it! Irfan starts the swing too straight and this deviates onto Kallis' pads, but he is unable to keep the flick down. Warner at midwicket comes forward, lunges and tries to pouch but spills it.


Pathan to Goswami, 1 run, good first over from Irfan, will have to see if he can keep it going as the ball gets slightly older. Again that away movement from the left hander as Goswami carefully steers to third man

Kolkata Knight Riders 4/0   IK Pathan 1-0-4-0

Pathan to Kallis, no run, Kallis tries to counter the swing by walking across the stumps and looking for the on side, but can't get it away.


Pathan to Kallis, no run, did he get an edge there? Kallis again moves the front foot well across and the ball bends in sharply, Kallis is cramped as he looks to drive and it goes off the pad. No inside edge, and through to the keeper.


Pathan to Kallis, 1 run, this time Kallis gets the single, flicking with the movement towards midwicket


Pathan to Goswami, no run, Goswami goes fishing. Only salmons of doubt for him. Irfan again gets it to curl away.


Pathan to Goswami, no run, now he backs away and looks to slash, but again the ball is in another zip code as Irfan continues to banana it away.


Pathan to Goswami, 1 run, finally Goswami gets behind the line, and defends from middle and off towards mid-on for a pinched single.

Kolkata Knight Riders 15/0   IK Pathan 2-0-6-0

Pathan to Goswami, 1 run, Run out appeal, and Goswami is struggling. He's just got in, though. Fuller ball and moving away from Goswami, who tips and runs. The fielder, Rao, prances in from cover, picks up and shoots down the stumps at the bowler's end. Just in.


Pathan to Kallis, no run, lift for Irfan, surprises Kallis as he hurries onto the back foot to defend to the off side.


Pathan to Kallis, OUT, Irfan's classical inducker has struck, but not the way you would expect it to. As always it lands on off and middle and curls in, searching for the bat-pad gap, but Kallis has bounded outside off stump already. He ends up well outside and looks to flick as the ball moves in sharply, and Kallis' glance can't make contact. Leg stump. Clatter.

JH Kallis b Pathan 11 (11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Pathan to Gambhir, no run, Gambhir skates out first ball and looks to crack him through the covers! Hits it hard, but finds Venu in the covers.


Pathan to Gambhir, 1 run, straighter from Irfan, Gambhir pushes it from the pads towards mid-on for his first run.


Pathan to Goswami, FOUR, vicious from Irfan, and Goswami can be proud that he even got bat on that. It landed on leg stump, moved away like a yo-yo and took the outside edge as it was headed to slip. The edge was thick enough to take it away from Sehwag at the lone slip. What a spell from Irfan!

Kolkata Knight Riders 34/1   IK Pathan 3-0-12-1

Pathan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, played away in front of square. RTD is away, but Tiwary is key.


Pathan to Tiwary, 1 run, Tiwary leans out to a ball outside off, and picks a single into the off side


Pathan to ten Doeschate, no run, RTD defends from the crease, not much movement for Irfan now.


Pathan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, just enough room outside off for RTD to slash away backward of point for a single


Pathan to Tiwary, 1 run, fuller ball on middle and off, driven down the ground for a single.


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   IK Pathan 4-0-16-1
