Khan to Klinger, FOUR, Klinger forces the issue here, makes an early forward movement, converts it into driving length, and lofts it straight over Zaheer's head

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 6/0   M Klinger 5* (4b 1x4)   Z Khan 0.5-0-6-0

Aravind to McCullum, FOUR, Baz has arrived to the ground where he scored 158 three years ago. Dances down the track and lofts this length ball over mid-off. Bring it on BMac

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 12/0   BB McCullum 5* (3b 1x4)   S Aravind 0.5-0-5-0

Khan to Klinger, FOUR, loose ball, and accepted with gratitude by Klinger. Full on the pads with short fine leg up. Four runs

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 20/0   M Klinger 12* (10b 2x4)   Z Khan 1.4-0-15-0

Aravind to Klinger, FOUR, craftily done, this was back of a length, cramping him up a bit, and he glances it wide of short fine leg

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 25/0   M Klinger 17* (13b 3x4)   S Aravind 1.1-0-9-0

Gayle to McCullum, FOUR, well played again, charged at him, made room too, took this on the full, and drove it past point

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 33/0   BB McCullum 13* (10b 2x4)   CH Gayle 0.2-0-4-0

Gayle to McCullum, FOUR, another four, does well to recover after an early charge. This becomes a highish full toss, but he chips it over Gayle's head

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 37/0   BB McCullum 17* (12b 3x4)   CH Gayle 0.4-0-8-0

Vettori to Patel, FOUR, nicely played, very quick footwork. Patel presses forward, sees this is a bit short, and quickly transfers the weight back to cut this for four

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 49/1   PA Patel 5* (2b 1x4)   DL Vettori 1-0-8-1

Mithun to Patel, FOUR, short down the leg side, Patel gets enough bat on this to send it wide of the keeper

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 55/1   PA Patel 9* (4b 2x4)   A Mithun 0.2-0-6-0

Vettori to Patel, FOUR, another whip, lovely turn of the wrists, beats short fine leg, and Zaheer Khan - perhaps aware of the perils of the Bangalore outfield - doesn't put in the dive

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 62/1   PA Patel 15* (8b 3x4)   DL Vettori 1.2-0-12-1

Gayle to Jadeja, FOUR, cut away after making room, Kochi need more of this

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 87/4   RA Jadeja 7* (5b 1x4)   CH Gayle 3.4-0-25-1

Dilshan to Jadeja, FOUR, nicely pulled away by Jadeja towards deep midwicket. Kohli makes a big dive running from long-on, but cannot prevent the boundary

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 96/5   RA Jadeja 14* (10b 2x4)   TM Dilshan 0.2-0-7-0

Vettori to Gomez, FOUR, and bowls quick and flat too, a semi-edge-semi-late-cut goes for four just as fast

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 102/5   RV Gomez 4* (8b 1x4)   DL Vettori 3.3-0-23-2
