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, 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

Kolkata Knight Riders 29/1   SP Goswami 17* (16b 3x4)   IK Pathan 2.3-0-7-1

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 42/2   G Gambhir 8* (6b 1x4)   AB Agarkar 0.1-0-0-1

Hopes to Gambhir, OUT, for the first time in it's history, the Kotla cheers Gambhir's exit. Hopes keeps it on a length around middle and leg at a friendly pace, Gambhir lines him up and looks to cart a six over deep midwicket, but ends up hitting it high rather than far. When it comes down, Venu at deep midwicket was under it.

G Gambhir c Venugopal Rao b Hopes 18 (19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 94.73

Kolkata Knight Riders 82/3   MK Tiwary 27* (21b 2x4 1x6)   JR Hopes 1.5-0-8-1

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 105/4   MK Tiwary 44* (31b 2x4 3x6)   UT Yadav 2.5-0-21-1

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.

EJG Morgan c †Ojha b Yadav 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 105/5   MK Tiwary 44* (31b 2x4 3x6)   UT Yadav 3-0-21-2

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   MK Tiwary 57* (43b 2x4 3x6)   M Morkel 4-0-42-1

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 145/7   MK Tiwary 61* (47b 2x4 3x6)   AB Agarkar 3.5-0-31-1
