Vinay Kumar to McCullum, no run, short of good length, pushed to the covers for no run.

4.3

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, FOUR, short ball and Gambhir continues to flay this attack, sways around and pulls it away to backward square-leg for a four!

4.4

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, no run, on the off-stump, gets the leading edge and drops short of the cover fielder.

4.5

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, no run, goes down the pitch and driven to short cover where Kohli, who was speaking with the commentators, fields well!

Kolkata Knight Riders 40/0   R Vinay Kumar 1-0-7-0

6.1

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, no run, goes down the track, gets an inside edge and narrowly misses the stumps. De Villiers dives to his right and stops it.

6.2

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, FOUR, short and he has gone on to his back-foot and smacked it over the mid-wicket region for a four! This is too slow a pitch to be bowling such half-trackers...

6.3

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, no run, slower one, outside the off-stump and he tries to guide it to the third-man region, the ball turns away and beats the outside edge.

6.4

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, no run, short again and he went for another pull stroke, this time straight to the fielder, Gayle at mid-wicket.

6.5

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, goes towards his leg-stump, and dabs it away to the covers for a single.

6.6

Vinay Kumar to McCullum, FOUR, shortish yet again and for a change it is McCullum who gets into the act! Pulled away and goes through to the wide long-on region, should have been a couple but Zaheer Khan makes an absolute mess of it and it rolls over to the fence.

Kolkata Knight Riders 55/0   R Vinay Kumar 2-0-16-0

17.1

Vinay Kumar to Kallis, 1 run, shortish but angling into the body and it is pulled away for a single.

17.2

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, outside the off-stump, pitched up and probably slower, the batsman goes over the covers, misses hitting the gap but it does not carry either.

17.3

Vinay Kumar to Kallis, 2 runs, full-toss and driven down the ground for a couple of runs.

17.4

Vinay Kumar to Kallis, 1 run, pitched right up to the bat and driven down the ground for a single

17.5

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, 1 wide, bouncer attempted and Gambhir wanted to go for it before he decided it was too high, the umpire also thought so.

17.5

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, no run, pitched right up to the bat and he can only manage to dab it away to point for a single

17.6

Vinay Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, slower one and cut to point, there was no third-man in place and would have gone to the fence had Gayle not intervened.

Kolkata Knight Riders 167/1   R Vinay Kumar 3-0-23-0

19.1

Vinay Kumar to Pathan, 1 leg bye, good length, on the leg side and he can only nudge it away to the leg side for a single

19.2

Vinay Kumar to Kallis, OUT, gone, caught! Finally they hold on to a good catch, but that is a strange shot coming from a batsman who has been hitting them so well in front of the wicket. Tries to paddle sweep it away, does not hit the middle of the bat and it has been caught at short fine-leg.

JH Kallis c Patel b Vinay Kumar 41 (43m 27b 1x4 3x6) SR: 151.85

19.3

Vinay Kumar to Pathan, SIX, second ball to Yusuf and he has slogged it over mid-wicket for a six! Is this really a slow pitch?

19.4

Vinay Kumar to Pathan, 1 run, pitched right up and Pathan gave it his all, goes to long-off for a run.

19.5

Vinay Kumar to Tiwary, 1 run, slower, good length and he gives himself room, belts it through the covers for a single. Pathan's back.

19.6

Vinay Kumar to Pathan, OUT, that is a full-toss and Pathan swings it away and that has been caught a few yards in front of the boundary at deep square-leg. Pathan waited for the umpire to call it a no-ball but he does not.
