Indian Premier League - Elimination final

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

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.

JH Kallis c Tendulkar b Patel 7 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 9/1   G Gambhir 0* (3b)   MM Patel 0.4-0-6-1

2.5

Harbhajan Singh to Gambhir, OUT, Harbhajan roars. And why not? He has taken out KKR's captain. It landed on a length around leg and middle and skidded towards the off stump. Gambhir went for the slog sweep but missed it completely. Now then .. now then...!

G Gambhir b Harbhajan Singh 4 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 13/2   SP Goswami 0* (2b)   Harbhajan Singh 0.5-0-4-1

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 15/3   MK Tiwary 2* (2b)   MM Patel 1.2-0-7-2

5.3

Kulkarni to Tiwary, OUT, Tiwary, you got to walk. He has to stop staring at the umpire and has to move. And he does so, eventually. He shuffled across and was caught on the move. The ball skid in to hit him in front. It would have taken out the top of the leg stump. Crash! KKR are swaying away like drunken men.

MK Tiwary lbw b Kulkarni 4 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Kolkata Knight Riders 20/4   YK Pathan 3* (8b)   DS Kulkarni 1.3-0-3-1

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   RN ten Doeschate 37* (29b 3x4 2x6)   MM Patel 3-0-16-3

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   RN ten Doeschate 49* (38b 5x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 3.1-0-15-1

18.2

Kulkarni to ten Doeschate, 1 run, OUT, Bhatia is run out It was another low full toss, swinging in from outside off, driven to left of long-off. Rohit collects and releases the throw quickly. Very accurate too. Dhawal breaks the bails before a diving Bhatia can gets his bat inside the crease.

R Bhatia run out 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kolkata Knight Riders 131/7   RN ten Doeschate 56* (42b 6x4 2x6)   DS Kulkarni 3.2-0-29-1
