2.1

Sharma to Morgan, 1 run, short of a good length on middle and leg, gets back and turns it past midwicket for a single

2.2

Sharma to Kallis, no run, hits the pitch hard, on middle and leg, turns it towards square leg

2.3

Sharma to Kallis, no run, short of a good length on the off, rocks back and punches it towards point

2.4

Sharma to Kallis, no run, Again uncharacteristic from Kallis, offers a bit of width, he charges down the track and tries to murder that through the off side but is nowhere near it

2.5

Sharma to Kallis, FOUR, edged and over the keeper, short and wide, Kallis made room and simultaneously came down the track, tried to upper cut that over third man, got a thick edge and it evaded Sangakkara's jump to race for a boundary

2.6

Sharma to Kallis, 1 run, mistimed, slightly short and he tried to cream that past cover, sneaked a quick single in the end

Kolkata Knight Riders 22/0   I Sharma 1-0-6-0

4.1

Sharma to Kallis, FOUR, gift ball there from Ishant, short and wide and at the right height for Kallis who slashes it to the deep point boundary, Ojha at third man isn't the quickest and had no chance

4.2

Sharma to Kallis, no run, short of a good length, rocks back and punches it to point

4.3

Sharma to Kallis, FOUR, pulled away, there isn't an awful amount of bounce on this pitch and Kallis has no trouble dispatching that, short outside off and he gets into position early to thwack it past mid-on and midwicket

4.4

Sharma to Kallis, no run, slower one bowled short outside off, plays it away towards point

4.5

Sharma to Kallis, no run, slower one again, slightly short this time, was the attempted offcutter, Kallis picked it late and was trying to dab it past Sangakkara but couldn't make contact

4.6

Sharma to Kallis, no run, backed himself to go for that and it seemed as though the shot was on, short and wide and charged out to slash that over point, missed

Kolkata Knight Riders 35/0   I Sharma 2-0-14-0

16.1

Sharma to Tiwary, 2 runs, shortish ball outside off, Tiwary slaps it towards deep backward point, Ojha races across from third man to cut it off

16.2

Sharma to Tiwary, 2 runs, another short ball, muscled with a flat bat past midwicket, wide long-on comes across to collect that

16.3

Sharma to Tiwary, 1 run, Ishant sticks to the same length, Tiwary can't get hold of the pull, completely mis-hit, lands well short of deep midwicket

16.4

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

16.5

Sharma to Tiwary, no run, Tiwary sets himself up for the big heave, Ishant spots that and slips in the bouncer outside off, Tiwary can't get bat on it

16.6

Sharma to Tiwary, (no ball) 1 run, Ishant can't finish off what was a decent over, he sprays a high no-ball on legstump, easily above waist high, helped along to fine leg, Ishant apologises

16.6

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   I Sharma 3-0-28-0

18.1

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

18.2

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

18.3

Sharma to Tiwary, 1 run, nicely hit but not as nicely as he would have wanted, length ball and he got under it but failed to clear long-on, got to him on the bounce

18.4

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

18.5

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

18.6

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   I Sharma 4-0-37-0
