Yadav to Gambhir, 2 runs, oho, Irfan's made his first mistake of the day. He's put down a tough chance from Gambhir.

Never looked like taking it.

Kolkata Knight Riders 55/2   UT Yadav 2-0-13-0

Yadav to Pathan, 1 run, Big appeal from Umesh, but that was surely heading down. Length ball, comes in with the angle and Tiwary misses the flick. Onto the pad and rolls away to the off side.


Yadav to Tiwary, SIX, how did that go for six? He was late on the front-foot hoicked pull, Umesh got it to hurry on him, and Tiwary ended up getting it away off the top edge. And it easily cleared wide long-on. This is a tennis court.


Yadav to Tiwary, no run, aha, tight, he plays straight to Sehwag at midwicket, and Yusuf backs up too far down before returning. A direct hit might have got him out.


Yadav to Tiwary, 1 run, width outside off, Tiwary dabs backward of point for one.


Yadav to Pathan, OUT, Pathan c Pathan b Yadav. Umesh does well, again ensuring it's not full enough for the drive, and Yusuf goes for his patent muscled slam over long on. The ball is again onto him faster than he thought, and he ended up lofting it straight to Irfan at long on. Easy catch, but given whose it was, and that he's fielded badly today, Irfan would have felt the pressure. After all, big brother was watching.

YK Pathan c Pathan b Yadav 5 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50


Yadav to Morgan, OUT, Quick Gun Morgan, gone before you noticed. This is really good bowling from Umesh, another short ball that comes along faster than the batsman expected. Morgan was clearly caught by surprise, and ended up losing the grip on the bat as he swung the pull. It went nowhere, and the keeper got under it.
