Indian Premier League, 65th match: Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders at Mumbai, May 16, 2012
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 32 runs
16 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Singh to McCullum, OUT, 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.

BB McCullum lbw b Singh 1 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 6/1   G Gambhir 5* (3b 1x4)   RP Singh 0.2-0-0-1

Singh to Kallis, OUT, 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

JH Kallis b Singh 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 6/2   G Gambhir 5* (3b 1x4)   RP Singh 0.3-0-0-2

Pollard to Gambhir, OUT, 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

G Gambhir b Pollard 27 (40m 23b 3x4 1x6) SR: 117.39

Kolkata Knight Riders 44/3   MK Tiwary 13* (22b)   KA Pollard 1.3-0-6-1

Smith to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, 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.

Shakib Al Hasan b Smith 13 (19m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Kolkata Knight Riders 89/4   MK Tiwary 40* (39b 2x4 2x6)   DR Smith 0.2-0-0-1

Patel to Tiwary, OUT, ... 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

MK Tiwary c Malinga b Patel 41 (58m 43b 2x4 2x6) SR: 95.34

Kolkata Knight Riders 91/5   YK Pathan 1* (1b)   MM Patel 3.1-0-14-1

Smith to Pathan, OUT, 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

DB Das run out 2 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kolkata Knight Riders 96/6   YK Pathan 4* (7b)   DR Smith 1.4-0-4-1

Malinga to Bhatia, OUT, 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

R Bhatia c †Karthik b Malinga 12 (17m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 171.42

Kolkata Knight Riders 125/7   YK Pathan 18* (16b 2x4)   SL Malinga 3.1-0-24-1
