Indian Premier League - 41st match

Chennai Super Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 5 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

1.1

Lee to Hussey, no run, short of length, tries to pull it away! Misses and goes through to the wicket-keeper. Lack of bounce did not help matters.

1.2

Lee to Hussey, no run, pitched up this time after that short ball last time, gets an inside edge but luckily for him, it goes back into his pads.

1.3

Lee to Hussey, 1 run, length ball, defended and it rolls back on the bounce to the wicket-keeper, who fails to hold on to it because of the bounce and they are able to get away for a single

1.4

Lee to du Plessis, OUT, Appeal for a catch behind, but did that carry? Yes it does! Short ball and Faff played the same shot that Hussey tried off the first ball, the difference was that he did get some bat to it and it has gone straight into the wicket-keeper's gloves!

F du Plessis c †McCullum b Lee 3 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

1.5

Lee to Raina, no run, pitched up, outside the off stump and is very tentative, misses the edge. No foot movement, probably because of the short-leg fielder who is present.

1.6

Lee to Raina, no run, short this time and defended on the back-foot. Some words off the previous delivery.
