Bhatia to Karthik, no run, Bhatia begins with a length ball on off, defended off the front foot by Karthik


Bhatia to Karthik, OUT, another run-out, terrible cricket this from Punjab, a defensive push from Karthik towards point, Morgan swoops on to that and the throw is a tough high for the keeper, who takes off the bails even as Nayar puts in a dive, thats not enough for Nayar, and things getting bad to worse for Punjab, the Edeh Gardens crowd are enjoyed the Saturday night

AM Nayar run out 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Bhatia to Hussey, 1 run, pushed towards long-on to get off the mark


Bhatia to Karthik, no run


Bhatia to Karthik, 1 run, just outside off, Karthik opens the face and dabs the ball towards backward point for a single, that was a legcutter from Bhatia


Bhatia to Hussey, no run, length ball to end a tight over, Hussey gets forward and eases the ball to short cover

Kings XI Punjab 55/4   R Bhatia 1-0-2-0

Bhatia to Hussey, no run, sharp fielding from Morgan, just outside off, chopped towards backward point


Bhatia to Hussey, no run, oh my, what is with Punjab's running today? Hussey pushes the ball towards extra cover, shouts 'Wait, wait', Karthik was dashing off, had to scramble back and he would have been safe even if there was a direct hit


Bhatia to Hussey, no run, why was that not out? pitching on leg, jags back and hits the back pad in front of middle and leg, he was a goner, umpire perhaps thought that pitched outside leg, lucky Hussey


Bhatia to Hussey, no run


Bhatia to Hussey, 1 wide, more luck for Hussey, ball hits his pads outside leg and goes to the keeper and that is called wide


Bhatia to Hussey, no run, slapped off the back foot to cover, too firmly hit for a single


Bhatia to Hussey, 1 bye, this one keeps low, outside off and it slips under the bat, takes the keeper by surprise as well, dribbles after hitting the keeper's glove

Kings XI Punjab 66/4   R Bhatia 2-0-3-0

Bhatia to Karthik, 5 runs, oh dear, Bhatia fumes as there are four overthrows, it was a full toss on middle stump, reverse-swept towards point where Morgan is quickly on to the ball, he fires it in at the non-striker's end, hits Karthik's bat and goes away for overthrows, Karthik sportingly decided against running the overthrows but the ball races over the ropes, which means Punjab get the runs


Bhatia to Hussey, 1 run


Bhatia to Karthik, no run, punched off the front foot towards extra cover


Bhatia to Karthik, 1 run, full ball around off, Karthik squeezes it towards backward point


Bhatia to Hussey, 1 run, a near yorker on middle and leg, blocked back to the bowler


Bhatia to Karthik, no run, blocked to the off side to end the over

Kings XI Punjab 80/4   R Bhatia 3-0-11-0

Bhatia to Karthik, no run, defends the first ball


Bhatia to Karthik, no run, another dot ball, blocked to the leg side this time


Bhatia to Karthik, 1 run, fullish ball on middle, glanced towards fine leg for a single


Bhatia to Bipul Sharma, 1 run, absolutely no pace from Bhatia, he's been bowling at a spinner's pace this over, 96 kmh this time, full and guided to fine leg


Bhatia to Karthik, 1 run, keeps it full, on legstump, Karthik wanted to whip that to the leg side, edges it towards Morgan at backward point


Bhatia to Bipul Sharma, FOUR, Bipul plays the sweep, just about gets bat on it and gets it very fine past the keeper, who is standing up, the umpire initially signalled wides then changed the decision to runs

Kings XI Punjab 93/5   R Bhatia 4-0-18-0
