Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, fuller on the off stump and GG wont stop playing that one, open face, guide to third-man, get a single

3.2

Kumar to Bisla, no run, length ball on the off stump and it's patted to the point fielder

3.3

Kumar to Bisla, no run, and now he was looking to charge the bowler and hit it over the top, bit of an outside edge to point

3.4

Kumar to Bisla, FOUR, not this time, no outside edge this time, he has given the charge yet again and whack he goes, over the extra-cover region for a four

3.5

Kumar to Bisla, 1 run, and yet again, it was a shorter ball after the batsman went down the track, is able to crack it through to third-man for a single

3.6

Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, wow, he just cannot help himself playing that stroke now, can he, slightly outside the off stump and the next thing you know is that he's opened the face and guided it through to third-man for a single

Kolkata Knight Riders 35/0   B Kumar 1-0-7-0

5.1

Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, short of length, outside the off stump and you can take a guess at where it's gone, pushed through to third-man for a single

5.2

Kumar to Bisla, OUT, goes for a whack across the line, misses and the bails are quickly whipped by the keeper, third-umpire called. whoa, that's gone, he seemed to have got his foot back but the part that is grounded is outside the crease and the one that's in the air is over the crease, which means that the umpire Taufel has no hesitation in giving it out!

MS Bisla st †Rawat b Kumar 12 (25m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 92.30

5.3

Kumar to Kallis, 1 run, and Kallis does a Gambhir, stands up tall and guides it to third-man for a single to get off the mark

5.4

Kumar to Gambhir, no run, on the middle stump line and he was looking to flick it away, was pitching outside the leg and hits his pads

5.5

Kumar to Gambhir, no run, outside the off stump, slightly slower and beats the outside edge, the keeper fumbles too

5.6

Kumar to Gambhir, FOUR, short of length and that's cracked away through the backward point area, there were two of them there and easily bisects them.

15.3

Kumar to Pathan, no run, slower, fuller and he plonks his bat and pad out and defends, to the fielder

15.4

Kumar to Pathan, OUT, edged and gone, Pathan's stay is a short one length ball outside the off stump, he wants to go for a hard-hit cut, what he ends up doing instead is to nick it straight to the keeper

YK Pathan c †Rawat b Kumar 3 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

15.5

Kumar to Tiwary, 1 leg bye, appeal for an lbw, he was looking to defend it, bit of movement back into him, hits the pads and they are off for a leg-bye

15.6

Kumar to ten Doeschate, 1 run, shuffles across to the off stump and gives the impression he wants to hit it over the leg side but then cuts it hard, straight to the third-man fielder for a single

Kolkata Knight Riders 99/5   B Kumar 3-0-15-2

18.1

Kumar to Tiwary, FOUR, smart shot that from Tiwary, almost puts the bowler into a quandary here, it was on the off stump, perfect length too but he goes out and scoops it over short fine-leg for a four

18.2

Kumar to Tiwary, 1 run, full-toss outside the off stump and with the third-man inside the circle, he will be cursing himself there, should have got it away to the fence, single to short third-man

18.3

Kumar to ten Doeschate, FOUR, blasted it through wide long-off for a four, that's fuller and outside the off and he walks across and smash it goes, what does the bowler do now?

18.4

Kumar to ten Doeschate, OUT, this is what he should do, this is what he has done! it short of length and he wants to pull it away, gets a top-edge and that goes high in the air and is caught rather well by the short fine-leg fielder

RN ten Doeschate c Upadhyay b Kumar 31 (32m 21b 3x4 1x6) SR: 147.61

18.5

Kumar to Tiwary, 1 wide, edged and through to the keeper on the bounce, but it's given a wide, he didn't hear it!

18.5

Kumar to Tiwary, 1 leg bye, slower one and he was looking to go down the track, does not get any bat on it, they are able to sneak a single

18.6

Kumar to Bhatia, no run, slower one again and he wants to cut it, but the new man's beaten for pace and it's through to the keeper
