Indian Premier League - 65th match

Pune Warriors v Kolkata Knight Riders

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

0.1

Lee to Ryder, no run, fullish ball on middle to start off, seemed to move away a touch. Ryder defended into the off side from the crease.

0.2

Lee to Ryder, no run, aha, top-gun bouncer and lively work behind the stumps from Goswami. It took off from back of a length, Ryder weaved away, and it kept rising. The keeper jumped up full length and pouched it in one glove.

0.3

Lee to Ryder, no run, on a length this time, Ryder stays stuck on the back foot and pokes it out to the off side

0.4

Lee to Ryder, 1 run, Ryder's away, stays beside the line to a full delivery just outside off and steers backward of point for a single.

0.5

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.

0.6

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   B Lee 1-0-9-0

2.1

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

2.2

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.

2.3

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.

2.4

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.

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   B Lee 2-0-16-0

16.1

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, no run, full and wide of off stump, Yuvraj looks to steer but is late on the shot and it runs under the blade.

16.2

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, no run, and here's another one. Yuvraj again goes for a steer and misses.

16.3

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, Superb shot. Yuvraj knows Lee is going to do this again, full and outside off. He just waits, fractionally opens up the off side, opens up the face and guides him with the pace of the ball to third man. That flew.

16.4

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, straighter this time, Yuvraj works it towards midwicket for another single.

16.5

Lee to Rana, 1 run, short ball, Rana hops back and guides the pull to deep square leg for a single.

16.6

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, no run, hmm, again Lee lands it full and wide. Yuvraj leaves and looks beseechingly at the umpire. Not called.

Pune Warriors 93/5   B Lee 3-0-22-0

18.1

Lee to Rana, 1 leg bye, lovely little slow offcutter, Rana was initially fooled before nudging it away fine, and Goswami does really well to stop it as he dives away to his left.

18.2

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, no run, Yuvraj looks completely confused, and so are we. Another one full and wide outside off, this was surely well outside the tram line. Yuvraj gestures in anger, and rightly so.

18.3

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, this one angles into him, and Yuvraj muscles it away to the square leg area without timing for a couple.

18.4

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, cat and mouse stuff this! Concerned by the umpire's not so stringent standards, Yuvraj reaches well out to another potential wide and squeezes it away towards extra cover. Rana hares back to give him the strike.

18.5

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, this time Yuvraj moves inside the line as Lee spears it in, and ends up whipping it to deep midwicket off the back foot. Two more. No wait, they only get a single since Rana hasn't completed the first one cleanly.

18.6

Lee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, he's doing all he can to get under Lee, and he's not being allowed to. Another signature full ball outside off, Yuvraj tries to go up and over, but gets only as far as long off. He keeps strike though.

Pune Warriors 111/5   B Lee 4-0-28-0
