1.1

Patel to Kallis, 2 runs, around waist-high full toss , a surprised Kallis jabs it to square-leg.

1.2

Patel to Kallis, no run, leans forward to drive the full delivery to covers

1.3

Patel to Kallis, FOUR, Classy! Full pitched outside off stump, Kallis leans well forward to crash it through wide mid-off.

1.4

Patel to Kallis, OUT, Munna bhai strikes. It was another full delivery, Kallis goes for the off drive but ended up slicing it a bit - Munaf had delivered it with a scrambled seam and that perhaps held up a bit - towards left of mid-off. Enter SRT into the act. He moved to his left and lunged out to pouch a low catch. Inches off the turf and all that jazz.

3.1

Patel to Tiwary, 1 run, angling in towards the middle stump line , jabbed away from the crease

3.2

Patel to Goswami, OUT, Oh boy! KKR is imploding spectacularly. Spontaneous combustion. It was a short ball- Kallis had told him to look out for the short ball - Goswami backed away and had a wild slog at it. Cramped for room. Edge and gone! Munna is all smiles.

SP Goswami c †Rayudu b Patel 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

3.3

Patel to Pathan, no run, full and straight, Yusuf plays around the front pad and drags it to midwicket

3.4

Patel to Pathan, no run, The slog-o-rama continues! Yusuf wanted to drag-pull this back-of-length delivery from outside off to the leg side. The ball limped away towards mid-off

3.5

Patel to Pathan, 1 run, shows respect this time. He leaned forward to defend the length delivery

3.6

Patel to Tiwary, no run, gets back to tap the back-of-length delivery to point

Kolkata Knight Riders 16/3   MM Patel 2-0-8-2

12.1

Patel to Pathan, FOUR, The bouncer arrives and Munaf goes for the pull. He is beaten for pace but gets a big fat edge and the ball soars over the keeper

12.2

Patel to Pathan, 1 run, Munaf goes for another short delivery, at the body this time, Yusuf laps it around the corner for a single

12.3

Patel to ten Doeschate, no run, full in length, straightening on the off stump, pushed out to the off side of the pitch and Yusuf wants a single. His partner doesn't as Munaf Jonty Patel was on to the ball very quickly

12.4

Patel to ten Doeschate, 1 run, shuffles right across the stumps and swats a short-of-length delivery down to fine-leg fielder for a single

12.5

Patel to Pathan, 2 runs, another one banged in short and Yusuf doesn't quite connect well with his pull shot. He makes contact with the top half of the bat but the ball lobs into vacant spaces between deep midwicket and long-on

12.6

Patel to Pathan, OUT, The bouncer trick does the job for Munaf. The first bouncer flew over the keeper, the second was swatted to fine-leg, the third was lobbed over midwicket and now this. It was the short ball outside off, around chest-high, and Yusuf went for a flat-batted whack. The ball lobbed towards left of long-on where Pollard rushed across to take it very safely.

YK Pathan c Pollard b Patel 26 (24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Kolkata Knight Riders 80/5   MM Patel 3-0-16-3

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

16.3

Patel to ten Doeschate, FOUR, Low full toss outside off and ten DO crashes it to the cover boundary. Thwack!

16.4

Patel to ten Doeschate, 1 run, slower one around off stump, run down to third man

16.5

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

16.6

Patel to ten Doeschate, no run, yorker length well outside off, Ryan tries to reach it but can't. he looks at the umpire, as if to suggest, ' wasn't that a wide?'

Kolkata Knight Riders 121/5   MM Patel 4-0-27-3
