3 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Steyn to Kallis, FOUR, lovely stuff, follows up that rather uncharacteristic swing with a text-book drive between extra cover and mid-off, bowled on a good length and he just eased it through the line

Kolkata Knight Riders 16/0   JH Kallis 4* (5b 1x4)   DW Steyn 0.5-0-5-0

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 21/0   JH Kallis 8* (10b 2x4)   I Sharma 0.5-0-5-0

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 31/0   JH Kallis 15* (14b 3x4)   I Sharma 1.1-0-10-0

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 35/0   JH Kallis 19* (16b 4x4)   I Sharma 1.3-0-14-0

Christian to Gambhir, FOUR, Gambhir begins confidently too, was the slower one again, landed on a length outside off, he just chipped it over extra cover for a boundary

Kolkata Knight Riders 40/1   G Gambhir 4* (1b 1x4)   DT Christian 1.5-0-16-1

Ojha to Gambhir, FOUR, short, waits for it to turn in does Gambhir, makes room and slashes it past the diving point for a boundary

Kolkata Knight Riders 50/1   G Gambhir 11* (6b 2x4)   PP Ojha 0.2-0-5-0

Ojha to Gambhir, FOUR, trotted out and punches it over the bowler's head for a boundary, lovely to watch

Kolkata Knight Riders 84/2   G Gambhir 35* (21b 3x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 2.3-0-23-0

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 104/3   YK Pathan 16* (11b 1x4 1x6)   A Mishra 2.5-0-16-1

Steyn to Tiwary, FOUR, shortish from Steyn, what a response from Tiwary, he skips towards leg and swings his bat at it, sends it to a one-bounce four to third man, Tiwary has had a bit of struggle today, this was superb from him

Kolkata Knight Riders 116/3   MK Tiwary 9* (13b 1x4)   DW Steyn 2.4-0-16-0

Steyn to Tiwary, FOUR, follows it up with another beautiful hit, again he moves past legstump, this was full from Steyn, Tiwary drives it inside-out past extra cover for four

Kolkata Knight Riders 120/3   MK Tiwary 13* (14b 2x4)   DW Steyn 2.5-0-20-0

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

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 168/4   YK Pathan 47* (25b 3x4 3x6)   DW Steyn 3.5-0-31-1
