Iqbal Abdulla to Marsh, no run, just outside off, blocked from the crease to the off side


Iqbal Abdulla to Marsh, OUT, disaster for Punjab, Marsh is gone, that wasn't great running from them, Abdulla fired the ball in from round the wicket, struck the pads, prompting a big appeal, Marsh was seeing the ball as it bobbled square on the off side, Gilchrist was already halfway down when Marsh looks up to see him charging, he puts his hand out to ask Gilchrist to stop but it is too late, Marsj has no chance at all to make it to the non-striker's end

Iqbal Abdulla to Gilchrist, OUT, bowled him, Abdulla is elated and sets off a celebratory run, not exactly his greatest delivery but he doesn't care, it was a slightly short ball, Gilchrist shaped to mow that to the leg side, but it skids on and he misses the ball and is nutmegged, through his leg and on to the stumps, Dav Whatmore pumps his fists in the dug out

AC Gilchrist b Iqbal Abdulla 26 (27b 3x4 1x6) SR: 96.29


Iqbal Abdulla to Nayar, no run, a massive appeal for a catch at leg slip, umpire is unmoved as that came off the pad as the batsman looked to defend

Kings XI Punjab 44/3   Iqbal Abdulla 3-0-13-1

Iqbal Abdulla to Hussey, no run, more forward defence from Hussey


Iqbal Abdulla to Hussey, FOUR, a rare misfield from Kolkata, Gambhir is not happy at that, gives the fielder the teapot, pushed towards backward point, the ball spins behind Bhatia as he looks to field and it goes away for four


Iqbal Abdulla to Hussey, 1 run, tucked to midwicket for a single


Iqbal Abdulla to Karthik, 1 run, reverse-sweep from Karthik, gets it towards backward point


Iqbal Abdulla to Hussey, no run, an lbw appeal from Kolkata is turned down, pitching on middle and turning sharply, hits him on the thigh on the back leg, that was going to miss off


Iqbal Abdulla to Hussey, OUT, another big lbw appeal, this time the umpire is convinced, the big wicket of Hussey for Abdulla, he's having a great season, this was fired in quick, Hussey looking for the spin but there isn't no extravagant turn, slips past the bat and on to the pad, was that doing enough to take legstump? I'm not sure it was, the umpire does though

DJ Hussey lbw b Iqbal Abdulla 15 (20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Kings XI Punjab 86/5   Iqbal Abdulla 4-0-19-2
