Kochi Tuskers Kerala won by 17 runs
5 May 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Gomez to Kallis, OUT, bowled'im! Was the slower legcutter, Kallis drove at that inside the line, tried to play it past extra cover, it cut away to beat the bat and peg back the off stump, a timely breakthrough for Kochi

JH Kallis b Gomez 45 (41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 109.75

Kolkata Knight Riders 69/1   EJG Morgan 22* (21b 4x4)   RV Gomez 1.2-0-7-1

Gomez to Gambhir, OUT, gone first ball! The tide is turning, good length and Gambhir stepped away to play his favourite shot first ball, made room to clear extra cover but couldn't get the elevation he needed, played it straight into the hands of Mahela, Gomez is on a hat-trick

G Gambhir c Jayawardene b Gomez 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 69/2   EJG Morgan 22* (21b 4x4)   RV Gomez 1.3-0-7-2

Vinay Kumar to Tiwary, OUT, Tiwary has succumed, short ball on the off and he went for the pull, came off the bottom of the bat and McCullum at midwicket took it easily

MK Tiwary c McCullum b Vinay Kumar 1 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Kolkata Knight Riders 97/3   EJG Morgan 48* (35b 7x4 1x6)   R Vinay Kumar 3-0-22-1

Vinay Kumar to Morgan, OUT, run-out, another good delivery from Vinay, low full toss that Morgan couldn't do much against, gets to the keeper as he misses it on the swing and Yusuf has already run down the pitch to take strike next ball, by the time Morgan realises that it's too late and he sacrifices his wicket as Parthiv returns the ball to the bowler

EJG Morgan run out 66 (51b 8x4 2x6) SR: 129.41

Kolkata Knight Riders 132/4   YK Pathan 17* (12b 2x4)   R Vinay Kumar 3.4-0-28-1

Vinay Kumar to Pathan, OUT, Yusuf goes and it lookes beyond them now, full outside off and it's smashed hard but straight to Mahela who is positioned perfectly at extra cover, just inside the circle

YK Pathan c Jayawardene b Vinay Kumar 17 (13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 130.76

Kolkata Knight Riders 132/5   MV Boucher 0* (0b)   R Vinay Kumar 3.5-0-28-2

Singh to Lee, 1 run, OUT, pitched up to Lee, he drives it wide of long-off for a couple of runs, there's an appeal for a run-out but the throw was a wide one. Parthiv dived to take off the bails and it was enough to find Lee short, if only marginally. It is a run-out.

B Lee run out 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 138/6   MV Boucher 5* (3b)   RP Singh 3.4-0-43-0

Singh to Boucher, OUT, bowled'im, Kochi finish on a high as RP sends back Boucher who swings wildly but finds his off stump pegged back

MV Boucher b Singh 5 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 139/7   R Bhatia 1* (1b)   RP Singh 4-0-44-1
