Harbhajan Singh to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, gets back to punch this to covers

13.3

Harbhajan Singh to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, lands on the off stump line, on a length, on the off, pushed out to midwicket

Kolkata Knight Riders 82/5   Shakib Al Hasan 1* (2b)

14.1

Kulkarni to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, Crunchy! It's a length delivery outside off and Shakib creams it through wide mid-off. Lovely hit on the up.

14.2

Kulkarni to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, presses back, waits for the length delivery to angle away from him and plays it very late. He steers it down to the third man boundary. Very nicely done

14.3

Kulkarni to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, edged past a lunging keeper. Dhawal delivered this from around the stumps and got this one to cut back in with bounce. Shakib was cramped for room and he ended up chopping it to left of Rayudu who lunged out but couldn't reach in time. A proper keeper would have perhaps got it

14.4

Kulkarni to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, in the zone outside off and the keeper collects

14.5

Kulkarni to Shakib Al Hasan, 2 runs, clips this short of length to deep backward square-leg

14.6

Kulkarni to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, back of length outside off, from round the stumps, punched to covers

Kolkata Knight Riders 102/5   Shakib Al Hasan 16* (8b 3x4)

15.1

Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, slings across a low full toss outside off and Shakib inside edges the waft to fine-leg

15.3

Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 wide, sprays this full delivery down the leg side for a wide

15.3

Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan, 2 runs, Top shot! He moved outside leg and drove the very full delivery straight past Malinga. Long-on intervened to cut it off

15.4

Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, moves down the track and has to check the shot as it was a slower one: he adjusted well to push it down to long-off

15.6

Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 bye, yet another slower one, it beats Shakib who went for a cut and bounced over the stumps. Rayudu lunges to make a half-stop as it bounced before it reached him. They steal a bye.

Kolkata Knight Riders 110/5   Shakib Al Hasan 20* (12b 3x4)

16.1

Patel to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, starts off with a bouncer and Shakib edges the pull to fine-leg boundary. He was beaten for pace and by the extra bounce but got the edge

16.2

Patel to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, fuller, outside off and Shakib gets another edge, as he tries to slug that, to third man. Dhawal waits for the ball to land and prefers to just field it. Munaf isn't too impressed. He thinks Dhawal should have gone for the catch

16.5

Patel to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, full in length, on the middle stump line, dragged to deep midwicket

Kolkata Knight Riders 121/5   Shakib Al Hasan 26* (15b 4x4)

17.1

Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, The slower one works. Shakib had moved outside leg and Malinga follows him with a slower one. Shakib was too early into his pull shot and fails to connect. The ball hits his left thigh and falls on the stumps! Good cameo but it's over now

Shakib Al Hasan b Malinga 26 (16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

Kolkata Knight Riders 121/6   Shakib Al Hasan 26 (16b 4x4)
