Indian Premier League, 65th match: Pune Warriors v Kolkata Knight Riders at Mumbai, May 19, 2011
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.

Pune Warriors 5/0   MK Pandey 4* (1b 1x4)   B Lee 0.5-0-5-0

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)   B Lee 1-0-9-0

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.

Pune Warriors 14/1   MK Pandey 13* (7b 3x4)   B Lee 1.2-0-13-0

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)   JH Kallis 1-0-7-0

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.

Pune Warriors 39/2   CJ Ferguson 13* (15b 2x4)   YK Pathan 1.3-0-8-1

Shakib Al Hasan to Uthappa, FOUR, here comes the reverse sweep from Uthappa, he plays this shot almost compulsively these days. Short of a length, breaking away, he reverse slaps it fine enough to beat short third man.

Pune Warriors 58/3   RV Uthappa 6* (5b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 2.2-0-11-1

Pathan to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, Abdulla can create spin, but not handle it too well! Yuvraj leans across and blasts the sweep shot out towards deep square leg, to the right of Abdulla in the deep. He runs across and thinks he has it covered, when it pitches and wrong foots him with the spin.

Pune Warriors 76/4   Yuvraj Singh 5* (4b 1x4)   YK Pathan 2.1-0-15-1

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.

Pune Warriors 91/5   Yuvraj Singh 15* (15b 2x4)   B Lee 2.3-0-20-0

Kallis to Rana, FOUR, and that's why seamers haven't bowled much today. Kallis lands this short and wide outside off, Rana gives it everything and carves it powerfully over point. Well played.

Pune Warriors 97/5   S Rana 8* (8b 1x4)   JH Kallis 1.1-0-11-0

Kallis to Rana, FOUR, even better from Rana. He gets another short ball, this one angling in, but there are two men prowling in the deep. Rana knows it, and ensures he places it between them, in front of square, and picks up four.

Pune Warriors 101/5   S Rana 12* (9b 2x4)   JH Kallis 1.2-0-15-0
