Pathan to Valthaty, 1 run, kicks up from short of length and Paul is surprised. He hops, gets the bottom-hand working overtime and ends up stabbing the ball aerially through backward square-leg reigon


Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, lands around the middle and moves towards off and middle, Gilchrist gets behind the line to push it back down the track


Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, Swing and a miss. It's a wide outswinger outside off and Gilly went after it but the ball curved past the edge


Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, around the off stump area, Gilchrist covers the away movement and steers to backward point


Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, Good news. Irfan is swinging the white ball. Bad news. Gilchrist is not connecting with his shots. This was an outswinger and Gilchrist ended up driving too far inside the line


Pathan to Gilchrist, FOUR, Good news. Gilchrist has connected with a shot. Bad news. Irfan didn't get it to swing much. Gilchrist leaned forward and across and creamed this full delivery through wide mid-off region

Kings XI Punjab 5/0   IK Pathan 1-0-5-0

Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, Huge slog and a miss. This wasn't a swing; this was a slog. He leaned forward and tried to heave it from well outside off to the leg side. No luck. The ball tails away from him.


Pathan to Gilchrist, 1 run, The ball is swinging and I am surprised Gilchrist is trying to drive it to straight rather than repeat what he did the last ball of the previous Irfan over when he drove with the swing. This one flies off the outside edge to third man.


Pathan to Valthaty, 4 runs, Run out of Gilly missed! and four (five?)overthrows. What an absolute mess. It was pushed to point region and Gilly ran. Paul froze. Gilly kept running. Yogesh caught the ball and Gilly slipped. Paul started to run. Irfan was near the stumps at the non striker's end. Yigesh fired the throw- he could have just lobbed it.- The throw bounces on the pitch and moves towards Irfan who fails to collect it! Paul decided late to sacrifice his wicket and starts to run across but by then the ball had passed Irfan


Pathan to Valthaty, no run


Pathan to Valthaty, 1 run, turned to the leg side for a single


Pathan to Gilchrist, FOUR, He is in the slog mood. He charges down the track and flat-bats a shortish delivery over the bowler.

Pathan to Marsh, OUT, Irfan takes out Shaun. It landed back of length and moved away from the off stump. Marsh went for a big flat-batted heave across the line and top edged it. Morne ran in from third man to collect it.

SE Marsh c Morkel b Pathan 46 (28b 5x4 3x6) SR: 164.28


Pathan to Valthaty, OUT, A pumped-up Irfan hops in joy. The off stump has gone for a night-out. It was the full delivery but Paul was so frozen on the back foot. He was perhaps again expecting a short ball. The ball curved in the air, landed full around off and darted back in. Paul was in panic mode by now; he crouched and tried to stab it. No luck. The ball curved in, went through the bat and pad gap and took out the off stump

PC Valthaty b Pathan 62 (50b 6x4 3x6) SR: 124.00

Pathan to Mandeep Singh, no run, lands on the middle stump line and the batsman tries to move outside leg and cut. The ball flies over the middle stump


Pathan to Mandeep Singh, FOUR, Irfan can't believe that the deep midwicket fielder (sreeram) has failed to catch it. It was pulled high to the right of the deep midwicket who misjudged it badly. He ended up running around in circles and didn't get close to the ball.


Pathan to Mandeep Singh, FOUR, Sreeram back in action again. Irfan in angry mode again. It was pulled to right of deep midwicket and Sreeram rushes across and lunges out. He gets hirght hand to it but the ball runs away to the boundary


Pathan to Mandeep Singh, OUT, Clatter! Irfan pings the leg stump. Mandeep cleared his front foot and went for a big slog to the leg but missed the full delivery.
