Ojha to Pathan, no run, usuf Pathan gets forward and defends it down the track


Ojha to Pathan, 1 run, Yusuf Pathan sweeps, that stroke was played with one hand, flies to fine leg

Kolkata Knight Riders 80/2   YK Pathan 1* (2b)

Mishra to Pathan, 1 run, length ball pitching on middle, clipped to the leg side


Mishra to Pathan, no run, fullish ball just outside off, batsman yorks himself as he looks to hammer the ball over long-on


Mishra to Pathan, 1 run, shortish this time, carved towards point, just a single

Kolkata Knight Riders 87/3   YK Pathan 3* (5b)

Ojha to Pathan, 1 run, Dropped, that's a big miss, Yusuf survives, a swipe towards deep midwicket and Mishra should have taken that, it wasn't that difficult, he got under that one near the rope, and let it slip through his fingers


Ojha to Pathan, 1 leg bye, fired down the leg side, off the pads towards short fine leg


Ojha to Pathan, SIX, hello massive, Yusuf does what he does best, a length ball, swing of the arms from Yusuf and that ball has been put into orbit, flies way over the long-on boundary

Kolkata Knight Riders 97/3   YK Pathan 10* (8b 1x6)

Mishra to Pathan, 2 runs, hustles straight through, Yusuf get back in the crease and tucks the ball towards deep midwicket, great running from Tiwary to pinch the second


Mishra to Pathan, no run, slapped towards point by Yusuf


Mishra to Pathan, FOUR, Another drop, "I hit you miss," Yusuf says, he wanted to clobber this one over long-on, it was a regulation catch for Dan Christian who was stationed at the boundary, was an overhead catch he should have taken, instead he flubs it, and the ball bounces over for four, Mishra's misery compounds


Mishra to Pathan, SIX, bang! power from Yusuf, that was an awesome hit, barely had any elevation, flew flat and long, wide outside off, Yusuf brutalised it over wide long-off for a six to give Deccan something to ponder during the strategic time-out

Kolkata Knight Riders 110/3   YK Pathan 22* (12b 1x4 2x6)

Steyn to Pathan, 1 run, length ball on off, just moves away a touch, outside edged towards point by Yusuf

Kolkata Knight Riders 112/3   YK Pathan 23* (13b 1x4 2x6)

Sharma to Pathan, 1 run, this time it is Yusuf who plays it uppishly towards deep midwicket, much more controlled shot this, again bounces a few yards short of the fielder


Sharma to Pathan, SIX, shortish ball, murdered by Yusuf Pathan, stands tall and absolutely clobbers the ball over long-on for six, ends up an expensive over for Deccan

Kolkata Knight Riders 135/3   YK Pathan 30* (15b 1x4 3x6)

Christian to Pathan, 1 run, good length outside off, caresses it through the covers for a single


Christian to Pathan, 2 runs, length ball outside off, tries to cream that through the covers, gets an inside edge past the keeper for a couple more


Christian to Pathan, 1 run, low full toss on the off, drilled towards long-off, keeps the strike

Kolkata Knight Riders 148/3   YK Pathan 34* (18b 1x4 3x6)

Sharma to Pathan, 2 runs, dropped, though it wouldn't be entirely fair to call it that, didn't pick the slower one did Yusuf, went for a mighty swing over midwicket, got a top edge, Dhawan ran yards in from deep square leg and dived forward but he appeared to have overrun it and never got his hands to it in the end, two more


Sharma to Pathan, 1 leg bye, back of a length on middle, Yusuf swivels to play it down fine, manages only a leg bye in the end


Sharma to Pathan, 2 runs, pitched outside off, Yusuf makes room and slices it over point, Chipli runs to his left from deep point and drags it just inside the ropes, just a couple in the end


Sharma to Pathan, no run, banged in short on the off, tried to pull it but couldn't connect, good delivery


Sharma to Pathan, FOUR, powerfully struck, just a fraction short on the off stump, picks the length early and thumps it past a diving midwicket for four more

Kolkata Knight Riders 158/3   YK Pathan 42* (23b 2x4 3x6)

Steyn to Pathan, 1 run, full toss on middle, there is a deep midwicket in place and this goes straight to him


Steyn to Pathan, FOUR, Steyn errs in length again, another full toss on middle, Yusuf just flicks it over square leg for a boundary, was aiming for the yorker but one gone bad


Steyn to Pathan, 1 leg bye, slower one and Yusuf picked it really late, tried to clear square leg but sneaked a leg bye in the end

Kolkata Knight Riders 169/4   YK Pathan 47* (26b 3x4 3x6)
