Indian Premier League, 37th match: Kolkata Knight Riders v Kings XI Punjab at Kolkata, Apr 30, 2011
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 8 wickets (with 16 balls remaining)
30 April 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Pathan to Valthaty, OUT, Valthaty is gone, he hasn't had much strike so far, he spies a slightly short one, Valthaty takes on the fielder at long-on, the flat-batted hit doesn't have enough power behind it, it sails only as far as Manoj Tiwary

PC Valthaty c Tiwary b Pathan 7 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Kings XI Punjab 32/1   AC Gilchrist 24* (19b 3x4 1x6)   YK Pathan 0.3-0-5-1

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

SE Marsh run out 5 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Kings XI Punjab 40/2   AC Gilchrist 25* (21b 3x4 1x6)   Iqbal Abdulla 2-0-10-0

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

Kings XI Punjab 44/3   KD Karthik 3* (5b)   Iqbal Abdulla 2.5-0-13-1

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

Kings XI Punjab 53/4   KD Karthik 12* (12b 2x4)   R Bhatia 0.2-0-0-0

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   KD Karthik 27* (26b 3x4)   Iqbal Abdulla 4-0-19-2

Lee to Karthik, 1 run, OUT, one more run out? moves towards leg and carves the ball towards cover, throw fired in to the keeper, who is a yard away from the stumps, he throws the ball onto the stumps and Karthik is gone, perhaps he might have made his ground if he dived, smartly done by Shreevats

KD Karthik run out 42 (42b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 117/6   Bipul Sharma 16* (12b 1x4)   B Lee 3.4-0-25-0
