Indian Premier League - 65th match

Pune Warriors v Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 7 wickets (with 20 balls remaining)

1.6

Pathan to Ferguson, no run, short of a length outside off, poor calling. If there was any calling, that is. Steered towards point, Ferg runs, Pandey doesn't. Ferg stops, Pandey starts running. The charade stops just before it ends in shambles.

Pune Warriors 10/1   CJ Ferguson 0* (1b)

2.5

Lee to Ferguson, no run, short to Ferguson, and he whacks the cut straight to point.

2.6

Lee to Ferguson, no run, finishes off with another one of those very full balls on middle and off, Ferguson dead bats.

Pune Warriors 17/1   CJ Ferguson 0* (3b)

3.5

Iqbal Abdulla to Ferguson, no run, back of a length on middle and breaking away, Ferguson gets away and works against the spin to the leg side.

3.6

Iqbal Abdulla to Ferguson, no run, top over. Finishes with a length ball speared onto the stumps, and Ferguson plays it back down the track.

Pune Warriors 18/2   CJ Ferguson 0* (5b)

4.2

Kallis to Ferguson, no run, swish and a miss. Ferguson backs away to a short ball and looks to carve over the off side. Doesn't make contact.

4.3

Kallis to Ferguson, 1 run, Ferg's played a lot of shots without connecting with too many. Short ball at 130 kph, he gets across and looks to pull hard. Gets only a single as he mistimes through square leg.

4.5

Kallis to Ferguson, no run, aha, nearly a drop. Ferguson again looks to stay put on leg stump and crack a short ball away. He yorks the fielder at point, who does well to get something behind it.

4.6

Kallis to Ferguson, FOUR, shot of the innings so far. Ferguson doesn't back away this time, and waits for a length ball to angle into the zone before swiping it with the angle over deep square leg. First six of the innings.

Pune Warriors 25/2   CJ Ferguson 5* (9b 1x4)

5.3

Iqbal Abdulla to Ferguson, 1 run, short of a length on the stumps, Ferguson works it away to midwicket for one more.

Pune Warriors 28/2   CJ Ferguson 6* (10b 1x4)

6.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson, no run, top-quality armer from round the wicket. Beats Ferg all ends up, and somehow misses the stumps.

6.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson, 1 run, short and breaking away, Ferguson forces it to the leg side for one.

6.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson, no run, Ferguson keeps out a fullish ball. Phew! Eventful over.

Pune Warriors 32/2   CJ Ferguson 7* (13b 1x4)

7.2

Pathan to Ferguson, 2 runs, full ball on the stumps and a solid little sweep to the deep for a couple.

7.3

Pathan to Ferguson, FOUR, aha, the first blemish from KKR. To be fair to Lee it was never going to be easy to field a spinning sweep shot going away from him at short fine leg. He ran in and put in the dive, but only managed to parry it along to the boundary.

7.4

Pathan to Ferguson, 1 run, another sweep, this time Ferguson gets it square and picks up a single.

7.6

Pathan to Ferguson, 1 run, another single into the straight field to end the over. Pune need some release here.

Pune Warriors 42/2   CJ Ferguson 15* (17b 2x4)

8.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson, 1 run, if there is a sweepstakes competition in Navi Mumbai, Ferguson will win. Tossed up on middle, another full-blooded sweep, but there is protection in the deep square leg area.

8.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson, OUT, the ball of the century did not turn as much as this one did. This is some pitch! Three wickets to spin, and Pune continue to wobble. Shakib delivers it round-arm from wide of the crease, gets it to lands short of a length outside off as Ferguson advances. He's already fooled by the length, and he's about to be flabbergasted by the turn. The ball went away as if it doesn't agree with physics. Goswami does the rest. Ferguson won't ever comprehend what the ball did there.

CJ Ferguson st †Goswami b Shakib Al Hasan 16 (19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

Pune Warriors 44/3   CJ Ferguson 16 (19b 2x4)
