Indian Premier League - 2nd match

Kolkata Knight Riders v Delhi Daredevils

Delhi Daredevils won by 8 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

6.5

Morkel to Shukla, 1 run, OUT, Run-out! That is a silly one given the circumstances. Shukla pulled it away for an easy single but Das wanted a second. He ran, there never seemed any calling from them and he found himself at the same end as Shukla. Das has to follow his captain back.

DB Das run out 18 (13m 9b 0x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 55/6   LR Shukla 1* (1b)

7.3

Nadeem to Shukla, 2 runs, Paddle sweeps it to fine-leg and by the time the tall Morne Morkel picks it up at fine-leg, they run two.

7.4

Nadeem to Shukla, 1 run, Short of a length and he cuts it away for a single.

7.6

Nadeem to Shukla, 1 run, Up in the air as the attempt at hara-kiri continued. Luckily for Shukla it fell between long-on and long-off and the batsman survives.

Kolkata Knight Riders 62/6   LR Shukla 5* (4b)

8.1

van der Merwe to Shukla, no run, Tries to drive through the leg-side but misses the timing.

8.2

van der Merwe to Shukla, SIX, In the slot and Shukla smacks it over long-off for a big one! Valuable runs from a very good lower-order batsman!

8.3

van der Merwe to Shukla, 2 runs, Pitched up again and drilled to the long-on. Morkel dives to his right and prevents it from rolling into the fence and they get a couple.

8.4

van der Merwe to Shukla, FOUR, Cut away to the cover fence for four! That was coming into the batsman, an attempt by the bowler to cramp him but he managed to get that cut going!

8.5

van der Merwe to Shukla, no run, This time he attempts a pull but misses it completely. Still 12 runs already off the over.

8.6

van der Merwe to Shukla, 1 run, Driven down the ground to long-on for a single.

Kolkata Knight Riders 75/6   LR Shukla 18* (10b 1x4 1x6)

9.2

Nadeem to Shukla, 1 run, Full-toss and drives it to long-off for a run.

9.4

Nadeem to Shukla, 1 run, Another full-toss missed! Tries to hit over the long-on, gets only a single to the same fielder.

9.6

Nadeem to Shukla, no run, Attempts a hoick but gets nothing substantial on it.

Kolkata Knight Riders 85/6   LR Shukla 26* (14b 1x4 2x6)

10.2

Yadav to Shukla, no run, Swings at the short ball and he misses it completely.

10.3

Yadav to Shukla, no run, Outside the off-stump and he tried to free the arms. Misses again!

10.4

Yadav to Shukla, OUT, Gone this time! Caught at long-on, it was a good length ball but Shukla failed to gauge it too well and did not get the meat of the bat. The mistimed shot went only up to the long-on fielder who takes it comfortably.
