Time for the chase. Big task ahead for the Deccan batsmen; it's Sunny Sohal and Shikhar Dhawan making their way out. Sohal played a lovely little knock against Chennai the other day. His team will need something similar at the top today.

S Sohal c Morgan b Iqbal Abdulla 26 (20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

5.5

The pressure's building on Deccan here. One of these two will have to open up soon.

7.1

Iqbal Abdulla to Dhawan, FOUR, nicely done, shortish outside off and he plays the reverse-sweep, well enough to beat short third man to the ropes

7.2

Iqbal Abdulla to Dhawan, 1 bye, attempting the shot again, tried to reverse-slap it to point, seemed as though there was a bit of an under-edge that the wicketkeeper failed to get his hands on, it's given byes though

8.3

Bhatia to Dhawan, 1 run, slower one bowled slightly short on leg stump, punched past midwicket for a single

8.4

Bhatia to White, FOUR, misfield by Lee, you don't see that often, was a juicy full toss, White drives it meatily down the ground and Lee, running to his left from long-on, fumbles to allow it to roll over the ropes

8.5

Bhatia to White, 1 run, played towards long-on for a single

8.6

Bhatia to Dhawan, 1 run, slower one bowled slightly short on the off, jabs it towards deep midwicket for a single to keep strike

They're going at seven an over, but need to step up soon. Dhawan has settled in well and White will be keen to make amends for his form. Time for the timeout.

S Dhawan    28* (26b 3x4)      R Bhatia    2-0-13-0

Ambrish: "@Aravind: It's not "Shikar". It is "Shikhar" which means peak or summit." I think that was a deliberate modification from Mr. Arvind

10.1

Bhatia to White, OUT, bowled'im! Cameron was reaching for the summit there, trying to dispatch it over midwicket and out of Hyderabad, was a massive swing but he failed to pick the slower one from Bhatia, was into the shot too early, partly out of desperation, and got an inside edge onto the stumps. A slow legcutter it was

CL White b Bhatia 13 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

White's poor form continues, Christian replaces him

10.2

Bhatia to Christian, no run, was the back of the hand legcutter, Christian steps forward and defends him towards cover

10.5

Bhatia to Christian, OUT, Given out lbw and Christian is upset! Bhatia slipped in the slower one again, was the legcutter again on middle and off, Christian tried to drive that through the line, got an inside edge and was struck in line but you can't give those out. The umpire didn't notice the deflection, Deccan are in big trouble now

DT Christian lbw b Bhatia 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Ravi Teja comes in

10.6

Bhatia to Ravi Teja, no run, slower one on middle, gets on the back foot to play it to square leg with his team's hopes fading

Slower one and Dhawan slog-swept it and Unadkat, standing on the edge of the ropes at the deep midwicket boundary timed his jump to perfection and plucked it out with his left hand but couldn't hold his balance and fell over. Brilliant effort nevertheless

S Dhawan    47* (38b 4x4 1x6)      YK Pathan    3-0-19-0

A handy partnership this, gradually building up to be a threatening one. Kolkata are still ahead but that might change in one bad over. Balaji returns for his third over.

15.1

Balaji to Ravi Teja, (no ball) 1 run, full toss on the off, pushed gently towards long-on for a single. This has been given a no-ball as there are more fielders than allowed outside the circle

15.2

Balaji to Ravi Teja, 1 run, short, slow and way too wide, Ravi chases it and slashes it on the bounce to deep point, just a single

End of over 16 (11 runs) Deccan Chargers 119/4 (51 runs required from 24 balls, RR: 7.43, RRR: 12.75)
DB Ravi Teja    27* (19b 3x4)      L Balaji    3-0-27-0

Kallis to Chipli, 1 run, he picks it from a length and plays it to midwicket for a single to end it all

Kolkata have won comprehensively and Deccan are left in a precarious position in the points table. That stand between Yusuf Pathan and Manoj Tiwary proved decisive in the outcome, while Dhawan needed more batsmen to rally around him in the chase. Deccan are in seventh place with six defeats and three wins, and Kolkata are on top now but having played a game more than Mumbai, who are second. Nitin Sundar is finishing up his bulletin, which should be ready soon. We'll get you the presentation details in just a bit.

Sangakkara: "We needed some boundaries after that Time Out. We should have limited them to around 150-155. Our openers tried hard and delivered a solid start. We need to hold our catches, bowl well in the death overs and build on solid starts. Kolkata outplayed us and it's back to the drawing board for us."

Gambhir: "It was a professional effort from everyone, and it was a good performance from our bowlers to restrict them. It is good to have Boucher and we hope he chips in with the bat as well. I had a bit of pain in the knee and hopefully I should recover for the next game."

Yusuf Pathan is Man of the Match: "Mashallah, the ball was struck very well today. Thye captain told me to just play my game."

That's all we have from today. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Join us tomorrow for the double-header. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us at Cricinfo.
