Kolkata Knight Riders won by 7 wickets (with 20 balls remaining)
19 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Lee to Pandey, FOUR, Pandey's away with a crisp little cover drive from the crease. He stays put, no feet movement and other such trifles, just charms it away through the line into the covers.


Lee to Pandey, FOUR, short of a length outside off, and Pandey is in a spot if bother. The ball takes off again, some bounce on this track, Pandey can't ride it and fends unconvincingly. It flies away just wide of slip who leaps at full-tilt to his right, and can't get hand to it.

Pune Warriors 9/0   MK Pandey 8* (2b 2x4)

Pathan to Pandey, no run, flat and quick on middle and off, played back to the bowler.


Pathan to Pandey, no run, Yusuf's keeping it tight, again fullish length on the stumps and Pandey works it to the leg side.


Pathan to Pandey, 1 run, tossed up for a change, Pandey has a big heave at it but can't connect with the shot too well. Single taken.

Pune Warriors 10/1   MK Pandey 9* (5b 2x4)

Lee to Pandey, no run, Lee lands it on a length, Pandey stays in the crease and plays it down the track.


Lee to Pandey, FOUR, ah, how early was he on the pull? It was short from Lee, but not as pacy as usual. Pandey was in position early, swivelled onto the back foot, rolled the wrists and played the pull emphatically through midwicket.


Lee to Pandey, 2 runs, not so much finesse in this one, he just plonks the front foot forward and heaves on the up. He gets the short of length ball wide of mid-on, Gambhir tags it and keeps it down to two.


Lee to Pandey, 1 run, close! Direct hit might have made this very close. Interesting ball from Lee, a full swinging slower ball at 108 kph, Pandey spots it and bunts straight to mid-on and takes off for a single. Gambhir missed, he may have just made his ground though.

Pune Warriors 17/1   MK Pandey 16* (9b 3x4)

Iqbal Abdulla to Pandey, no run, as he's done many times this season, Abdulla produces a ripper than curls in, lands, and turns away like a fiend. How does he do it? Pandey feels for it and misses.


Iqbal Abdulla to Pandey, no run, tossed up, Pandey gets to the flight and plays it with the spin towards mid-off.


Iqbal Abdulla to Pandey, OUT, what joy to watch the classic left-arm deception work in the hit and giggle format! Abdulla has laid a trap with the first two balls, and Pandey walks into it. The first ball turned away a mile, the second one was tossed up and got Pandey reaching across to smother it. This time, Abdulla shortens the length and slips in the armer. Pandey had no clue, got half across and groped outside the line. The ball shot through and hit him in front of middle and leg. Plumb.

MK Pandey lbw b Iqbal Abdulla 16 (12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Pune Warriors 17/2   MK Pandey 16 (12b 3x4)
