Upadhyay to Gambhir, FOUR, up and over and for a four, this is another fuller one from the bowler, GG was looking to carve it over the point region, gets it over cover and for a four

Kolkata Knight Riders 12/0   G Gambhir 8* (5b 1x4)   K Upadhyay 0.4-0-8-0

Upadhyay to Gambhir, FOUR, hit hard, with a lot of authority, he walks down and gives it a serious tap down the ground for a four, beats the mid-off easily

Parnell to Gambhir, FOUR, on his pads, very full and that's caressed by GG, flicked away through the backward square-leg area for a four, the fine-leg fielder did give it a chase but that's too quick for him

Kolkata Knight Riders 21/0   G Gambhir 17* (8b 3x4)   WD Parnell 1.1-0-8-0

Parnell to Bisla, FOUR, short of length and Bisla is going to go after it, rocks back and pulls it away over mid-wicket for a four

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 33/0   MS Bisla 11* (10b 2x4)   B Kumar 0.4-0-5-0

Parvez Rasool to Gambhir, FOUR, opens his stance up and hits it inside out and for a four, that's the first four off Rasool in the IPL

Kolkata Knight Riders 39/0   G Gambhir 25* (15b 4x4)   Parvez Rasool 0.2-0-4-0

Parvez Rasool to Gambhir, FOUR, fuller this time and it's a false stroke that goes to the fence, whether it's good batting or false strokes, his favourite area remains the same, that V behind the stumps

Kolkata Knight Riders 43/0   G Gambhir 29* (16b 5x4)   Parvez Rasool 0.3-0-8-0

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.

Kolkata Knight Riders 50/1   G Gambhir 35* (22b 6x4)   B Kumar 2-0-13-1

Parvez Rasool to Morgan, FOUR, and now the reverse shot, is hit in the gap and goes for a four, wasn't too hard again, but the placement is the key there

Kolkata Knight Riders 60/2   EJG Morgan 6* (5b 1x4)   Parvez Rasool 3-0-16-1

Mathews to ten Doeschate, FOUR, this time he succeeds! he was looking to get runs in every part of the ground I think, drills it straight back to the bowler, four between long-on and long-off

Kolkata Knight Riders 111/5   RN ten Doeschate 20* (15b 1x4 1x6)   AD Mathews 3.4-0-26-0

Mathews to ten Doeschate, FOUR, four more, what batting this, where was he all this while! it was outside the off stump and the yorker was converted into a low full-toss, gets it over the short cover fielder for a four

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 130/5   MK Tiwary 12* (6b 2x4)   B Kumar 3.1-0-19-2

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?
