Indian Premier League - 33rd match

Delhi Daredevils v Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 17 runs

6.1

Agarkar to Goswami, OUT, Drumroll. Agarkar has struck first ball. And it might a poor decision. Unlucky for Goswami, who looks unhappy. Agarkar's knack for picking up wickets continues, even when the batsman is not actually out. No wait. The replay suggests he edged it. Full and wide outside off, Goswami looks to steer and it looked like he nicked it after all. Ojha completes the catch.

SP Goswami c †Ojha b Agarkar 22 (20b 4x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

6.2

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 wide, more vintage Agarkar. Wide down the leg side

6.2

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, Tiwary is away, drives in front of square and gets a single

6.3

Agarkar to Gambhir, no run, angled across Gauti, who opens the face and drives solidly into the mid-off area.

6.4

Agarkar to Gambhir, FOUR, the good old Gambhir walk in the park. He strolls out on leg stump line, converts a length ball into a half-volley and whips it over midwicket

6.5

Agarkar to Gambhir, 1 run, fuller and wide outside off, Gambhir plays into the covers for another single.

6.6

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, on the pads to end the over, Tiwary nudges square for a single.

Kolkata Knight Riders 50/2   AB Agarkar 1-0-8-1

8.1

Agarkar to Tiwary, no run, another almighty swing. And a miss. From Tiwary. He needs to settle down here.

8.2

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, Agarkar gets one to nip away a touch from a length, Tiwary taps into the off side and gets a single.

8.3

Agarkar to Gambhir, 1 run, Gambhir hangs back and opens the face to steer a single backward of point.

8.4

Agarkar to Tiwary, no run, Agarkar is hitting his straps now. It's a day for seamers on a comeback trail. Another one darts away off the seam, and Tiwary pokes uncertainly

8.5

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, gets this one shorter and it lifts onto Tiwary who is alert enough to dab it backward of square for one.

8.6

Agarkar to Gambhir, no run, that's as close to a wide as you will get without actually being called. Two feet outside off, Gambhir can't reach it from leg stump, though he swings hard. Not called.

Kolkata Knight Riders 58/2   AB Agarkar 2-0-11-1

10.1

Agarkar to Tiwary, SIX, oh boy, Tiwary gets a piece of patent Agarkar tripe and smashed it out of Delhi. Full toss at a nice height, on the pads and he clubs it after moving across, easily over deep square leg.

10.2

Agarkar to Tiwary, FOUR, Agarkar's bleeding now. Another leg-stump offering, Tiwary makes it worse by moving across and the whip-slaps him behind square leg for four more.

10.3

Agarkar to Tiwary, 3 runs, here comes the over-compensation, very short and well outside off. Tiwary opens the face and steers powerfully backward of point. Morne, from third man, does well to lope across and save the boundary.

10.4

Agarkar to Gambhir, no run, Gambhir looks to slam him through the off side, he comes out and looks to go big through the covers, but can't connect.

10.5

Agarkar to Gambhir, 1 run, whoa, Gambhir looks to play the lap shot, Agarkar responds with a slower offcutter at 113 kph on middle and off, Gambhir changes the shot and dabs to point.

10.6

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, another slower ball, this time at 112 kph and Tiwary pulls it with the deviation to deep backward square leg. Poor, poor over.

Kolkata Knight Riders 79/2   AB Agarkar 3-0-26-1

19.1

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, slower ball, comes on later than Tiwary expected and he guides the pull for a single.

19.2

Agarkar to Lee, 1 run, Lee would have been out if Sehwag had hit the stumps. Lee squeezes the full ball back towards Agarkar, who can't collect and it goes to Sehwag at mid off. Lee screams past, and dives, but would have been short.

19.3

Agarkar to Tiwary, no run, haha! Lee runs nearly one and a half runs. And Tiwary goes nowhere. The ball goes nowhere either. Tiwary looks to pull, can't get bat on it, and it is stuck between the legs. Lee hares across, Tiwary sends him back. Agarkar coolly trots across and picks up the ball from where it is lodged. Everyone smiles.

19.4

Agarkar to Tiwary, 2 runs, gets enough on this, forcing a full ball from Agarkar into the midwicket region. This is a good over so far.

19.5

Agarkar to Tiwary, 1 run, OUT, aha, the running has been funny this over. Lee's gone this time, despite the dive, which was poorly timed and he ended up sprawled at full stretch outside the crease. Tiwary again gets it away to the midwicket region and seemed content for one. Lee wanted to give the strike back and again rain almost halfway back before turning. Good throw from Nagar, and Ojha does the rest.

B Lee run out 1 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

19.6

Agarkar to Balaji, 3 runs, has Bala finished with a four? No, it is stopped really well in the deep once again by Nagar. Length ball on the pads, Balaji splashes it away towards deep square leg and Nagar dives and saves. They run three. 20 overs done, not a single one of spin.

Kolkata Knight Riders 148/7   AB Agarkar 4-0-34-1
