Indian Premier League, 15th match: Kolkata Knight Riders v Rajasthan Royals at Kolkata, Apr 13, 2012
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 5 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)
13 April 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Speaking of which, Balaji will open the bowling against Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane.

Gareth: "Can Balaji do it again? No Brett Lee, so he shoulders even more of the responsibility with Kallis."

PKD: "Why not play Tait in place of Botha who has done nothing in last three matches... Before Watson arrives, Tait should also be given a chance!" Yes, they can try out Tait in some game but they are speaking of this being a slow track. Kolkata's given Lee the axe and got in a spinner too.

Kolkata have brought in Sunil Narine in place of Brett Lee because of the dryness of the pitch. Das is playing in place of Shukla as well. Kevon Cooper seems to have picked up an injury and Brad Hodge comes into the side in his place.

Toss Rahul Dravid has won the toss and decided to bat first.

Gautam Gambhir says they would have batted first as well because the wicket looks dry.

Mutual admiration club then, Dravid says they would want to score as many as possible because of the quality of Kolkata's batsmen. Gambhir says he would want to restrict them to as less as possible because of the quality of Rajasthan's bowling.

7.25 pm: The last time these two sides played each other, Rajasthan had gone on to win by 22 runs, thanks to Brad Hodge's 29-ball 44 and a three-wicket haul from Kevon Cooper. Since then, Kolkata have come back and beaten Royal Challengers Bangalore to notch up their first win while Rajasthan went down to the Mumbai Indians away from home.

5.6

Kallis to Dravid, 2 runs, driven into the covers and ten Doeschate dives really well to stop it from going to the fence. What's more he also throws it at the striker's end and misses, but does enough to dirty Rahane's jersey as he dives for his crease!

Powerplay overs have ended now. After a slow start, this seems to be a decent score.

6.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Rahane, OUT, pitched right up to the bat and spinning away, Rahane went for a drive but seems to have got an edge through to the wicket-keeper! One down!

AM Rahane c †Bisla b Shakib Al Hasan 19 (27m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 118.75

Good way to start the non Powerplay overs for the Knight Riders. Still Rajasthan will be reasonably happy with this position. Menaria has come in now.

7.3

7.5

Pathan to Menaria, OUT, short of a length and that is played away to the leg-side, wanted a single, but it had gone very close to the bowler on his left. Pathan ran towards the bowler, picked it up and threw down the stumps at the non-striker's end direct...way out of the crease.

AL Menaria run out 1 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Any other overseas 'home' players you can think of this IPL?

Balaji to Hodge, 1 wide, slower but it is so short that the leg umpire calls it a wide. Looked like it was going above the batsman's head.

19.6

Balaji to Hodge, 1 run, slower one, but this time it is not short enough, Hodge tries to cut it away, inside edge and that results in a single.

A decent score in the end, on a track that is looking anything but that for the batsmen! Shakib al Hasan was the pick of the Kolkata bowlers, Narine did well too, while Owais Shah's 31 helped the side get to where they got to. We will see how the batting might of Kolkata goes in the second innings that begins in 10 minutes.

End of over 20 (15 runs) Rajasthan Royals 131/5
