View dismissal G Gambhir* b Pollard 27 40 23 3 1 117.39
8.3 Pollard gets the biggest KKR wicket, Gambhir is done in by a length ball that takes out off stump, he tried to work it away on leg but missed 44/3
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b Singh 1 4 5 0 0 20.00
1.2 he's been given lbw even though he is a couple of steps outside his crease. I'll have to look at replays to be convinced about that one. McCullum took a couple of steps out and tried to play towards square leg. He missed and was hit on the pad. The batsmen were running a leg bye when the umpire raised the finger. McCullum was just too far down the pitch, in my opinion. The line may have been alright, but the height? Replays show the ball pitching outside leg stump as well. Might have missed off because of the angle. Terrible decision from Subroto Das. 6/1
View dismissal JH Kallis b Singh 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
1.3 RP Singh has demolished off stump, terrific ball first up, no doubt about that dismissal. It pitched on a good length around middle and off, angling across the right-hander from over the wicket. Kallis shaped to play from his crease and prodded at the ball with a gap between bat and pad. RP got the ball to straighten off the pitch and threaded it through the bat-pad gap, hitting the top of off stump 6/2
View dismissal MK Tiwary c Malinga b Patel 41 58 43 2 2 95.34
14.1 ... and he's struck first ball! Tiwary came out of his crease and tried to launch a slightly slower ball over the straight boundary. He ended up mis-hitting it over the bowler's head towards long-off. Malinga came running in from the boundary and held the catch, though the ball nearly popped out of his fingers 91/5
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan b Smith 13 19 12 1 0 108.33
13.2 bowled him! The length was not short enough to pull but Shakib went for it anyway. Smith is quicker than he seems and the ball skids through on the left-hander. Shakib gets a bottom edge on to leg stump and is very annoyed with himself. Swings his bat in anger/disappointment/disgust as he walks off, take your pick. 89/4
YK Pathan not out 21 40 21 2 0 100.00
View dismissal DB Das run out (Harbhajan Singh/Smith) 2 6 3 0 0 66.66
15.4 Smith to Pathan, Das has been run out, surely. Yusuf pulled the short ball with power but hit it straight to Harbhajan at midwicket. Yusuf did not want the single but Das had run a long way from the non-striker's end by the time he was forced to turn back. Harbhajan threw the ball on the bounce to Smith who broke the stumps with Das well short 96/6
View dismissal R Bhatia c †Karthik b Malinga 12 17 7 2 0 171.42
18.1 caught, Karthik's come sprinting across and snatched the ball out of RP Singh's hands. RP's standing there with his hands on his hips. But Karthik's taken the catch. Bhatia slogged at a slower ball and mis-timed it high in the air towards square leg. RP Singh came running in from the boundary, keeping his eyes on the ball. The wicketkeeper Karthik was also going for the catch and just before the ball could fall into RP's hands, Karthik's gloves came into view and he caught it. RP was not pleased and Karthik said sorry. Munaf was the peacemaker 125/7

View dismissal HH Gibbs lbw b Iqbal Abdulla 13 23 24 1 0 54.16
5.6 this time Doctrove has raised the finger. Gibbs is visibly unimpressed. He came forward, tried to slog sweep and missed a straight one. Did that hit him outside the line? If not, he is plumb. That hit him in line of off and middle. Plumb. 26/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar b Narine 27 45 24 3 1 112.50
10.6 Narine's appealing for lbw, he hasn't seen the off stump lying flat on the ground. Tendulkar went back to cut, maybe he thought it was the straighter one because he was severely cramped for room by the sharp, fizzing offbreak. He got an inside edge on to thigh and on to the off stump. Had that not hit the thigh, it would have hit leg stump. It turned that much. 60/2
View dismissal KD Karthik c Pathan b Balaji 21 29 26 3 0 80.76
12.5 caught at fine leg! It was shortish ball, not the best Balaji has bowled. Karthik moved towards the off, swiveled and pulled, hitting it flat and straight to Yusuf on the boundary. He barely had to move to take that catch. It was a slower offcutter, in fact. 66/3
View dismissal RG Sharma c †McCullum b Narine 12 38 14 1 0 85.71
17.5 that's the match, surely! Rohit's been caught by McCullum, Narine is all over Mumbai Indians. Rohit did not read the straighter one and he closed the face to work the ball on the leg side. The ball lobbed off the leading edge towards where silly point would have been. McCullum sprinted around the batsman and dived forward to take the catch 104/8
View dismissal AT Rayudu st †McCullum b Shakib Al Hasan 11 13 8 0 1 137.50
15.3 Rayudu's been stumped! He charged at Shakib, who saw him coming and fired the ball flat and wide outside off, slanting across the right-hander. McCullum collected and had the bails off in a flash 83/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c †McCullum b Kallis 8 7 5 1 0 160.00
16.4 caught behind! Kallis' slower bouncer has done the trick for Kolkata. Pollard tried to hook at it and got a thick edge through to McCullum. Massive wicket for KKR. Pollard is so much more at ease against balls pitched in his half, I suspect Kallis knew that. 96/5
View dismissal DR Smith lbw b Kallis 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
16.5 lbw, first ball! Kallis on fire. It's a short of a length skiddy ball, pitching outside off and angling into Smith, who stayed back and closed the face to play towards square leg. He missed and was hit plumb in front on the back pad. Kolkata are storming through to the finish here. 96/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh* c Tiwary b Narine 1 1 2 0 0 50.00
17.1 caught at long-on! Harbhajan slogged at the one that spun away from him, dragging it from wide outside off straight down Tiwary's throat. Narine has his arms aloft, so does Tiwary 97/7
View dismissal SL Malinga c Tiwary b Balaji 8 10 6 0 1 133.33
18.6 caught on the long-on boundary! Tiwary is the catcher once again, moving to his left to intercept the flat-batted slog from Malinga against a short of a length ball 108/9
View dismissal RP Singh c Iqbal Abdulla b Narine 3 7 5 0 0 60.00
19.1 caught on the deep midwicket boundary! RP Singh has slogged him straight to midwicket and Narine is now IPL 2012's highest wicket-taker. Abdulla is the catcher. Narine's finished with 4-15, it could have been 5 for 9. 108/10
