28 April 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Morkel to Goswami, FOUR, and now Goswami pulls out his Ganguly impersonation, moving the front foot away to the leg side to open up the off side and then carves Morne with his pace and bounce through third man.

Kolkata Knight Riders 9/0   SP Goswami 6* (7b 1x4)   M Morkel 0.4-0-5-0

Morkel to Goswami, FOUR, top shot from Goswami, he stays put on leg stump and has enough room to free the arms through the off side. Morne keeps it wide enough outside off for the scythed cut over point. Goswami plays it well.

Kolkata Knight Riders 13/0   SP Goswami 10* (9b 2x4)   M Morkel 1-0-9-0

Morkel to Goswami, FOUR, shot of the day from Goswami. 144 kph, back of a length and not there to be driven. Goswami gets the half step forward, meets the ball and thumps it on the rise over a quickly ducking Kallis' head, and it pistols away to long off.

Kolkata Knight Riders 19/0   SP Goswami 15* (14b 3x4)   M Morkel 1.2-0-13-0

Morkel to Kallis, FOUR, risky but Kallis pulls it off. He might have tried this against Morne in the South Africa nets. He jumps out and to the leg side, making room to loft inside out, and then forces it between the covers for four.

Kolkata Knight Riders 24/0   JH Kallis 7* (7b 1x4)   M Morkel 1.4-0-18-0

Morkel to Kallis, FOUR, 154.6 kph, short and just a touch wide outside off. Kallis trots out again and murders it over point. It was short and rising as he met it with a vicious cross-batted slam. Up and over, six runs on this mickey-mouse outfield. Top shot.

Kolkata Knight Riders 28/0   JH Kallis 11* (8b 2x4)   M Morkel 1.5-0-22-0

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   SP Goswami 21* (17b 4x4)   IK Pathan 3-0-12-1

Yadav to Gambhir, FOUR, stand and deliver. Gambhir gets a foot of room outside off, sets up a solid base on leg stump and smashed it through the covers with a hint of disdain.

Kolkata Knight Riders 40/1   G Gambhir 6* (5b 1x4)   UT Yadav 0.5-0-6-0

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 48/2   G Gambhir 12* (8b 2x4)   AB Agarkar 0.4-0-6-1

Yadav to Tiwary, FOUR, well, Irfan's bowling might be coming back, but his fielding is going the other way. Short and wide outside off, Tiwary cuts with some power straight to Irfan at deep backward point where he does the long barrier and lets it go through.

Kolkata Knight Riders 54/2   MK Tiwary 6* (3b 1x4)   UT Yadav 1.1-0-12-0

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.

Kolkata Knight Riders 74/2   MK Tiwary 21* (17b 2x4 1x6)   AB Agarkar 2.2-0-21-1

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.

Kolkata Knight Riders 127/5   RN ten Doeschate 7* (7b 1x4)   JR Hopes 3.5-0-24-1

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.

Kolkata Knight Riders 140/5   RN ten Doeschate 19* (11b 2x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.5-0-42-0
