Indian Premier League - 56th match

Pune Warriors v Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 46 runs

2.4

Kallis to Finch, OUT, bowled him, Kallis has his man this time and no need for the third ump to decide on that one! short of length and it seems to have kept a tad low, he was looking to play off the back foot, almost stuck there without any feet and it's gone through, the off pole it on the ground, and Kallis looks back with a look that...well, could kill.

AJ Finch b Kallis 5 (14m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pune Warriors 20/1   RV Uthappa 14* (11b 2x4)   JH Kallis 0.4-0-1-1

3.3

Balaji to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, edged and gone, given! Yuvi's poor form continues, it was on the off stump and he was looking to defend it, gets bit of a nick to the keeper and he's gone!

Yuvraj Singh c †Bisla b Balaji 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pune Warriors 23/2   RV Uthappa 16* (14b 2x4)   L Balaji 1.3-0-11-1

7.1

Iqbal Abdulla to Birla, OUT, bowled him, a scratchy innings comes to an end! bit of turn away from the batsman, it was not full enough to play that sweep shot, misses and it spins away enough to take the off stump

UA Birla b Iqbal Abdulla 7 (17m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pune Warriors 39/3   RV Uthappa 22* (23b 2x4)   Iqbal Abdulla 1.1-0-9-1

10.5

Iqbal Abdulla to Uthappa, OUT, gone this time, cut straight to backward point! it was shorter in length and he wanted to cut it, doesn't get it off the middle of the bat, and it's a gentle lob for the fielder

RV Uthappa c Gambhir b Iqbal Abdulla 31 (55m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 88.57

Pune Warriors 53/4   AD Mathews 5* (10b)   Iqbal Abdulla 2.5-0-15-2

13.6

Bhatia to Marsh, OUT, and now Marsh has holed out to long-on! he was left with no option but to go over the top, it was a slower one from Bhatia and he was looking to hit it over long-on, does not get a lot of bat on it and it's well taken at the boundary

MR Marsh c Tiwary b Bhatia 5 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Pune Warriors 78/5   AD Mathews 25* (21b 2x6)   R Bhatia 3-0-19-1

16.1

Narine to Mathews, OUT, shorter and caught at long-on! he was looking to slog it away, did not get it off the middle of the bat because of the lack of pace, manages to only chip it to long-on and easily caught at long-on, a good knock but came too late

AD Mathews c Tiwary b Narine 40 (41m 28b 0x4 4x6) SR: 142.85

Pune Warriors 95/6   M Rawat 2* (6b)   SP Narine 2.1-0-7-1

17.6

Kallis to Rawat, OUT, edged and taken this time, Kallis does look back at the umpire who raises his finger that time! bouncer, outside the off stump but gets nowhere close to the middle, through to the keeper who takes a simple one

M Rawat c †Bisla b Kallis 5 (18m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Pune Warriors 103/7   WD Parnell 5* (6b)   JH Kallis 4-0-27-2

18.1

Narine to Parnell, OUT, and now Narine gets one, it was fuller on the off stump and hit straight to long-off, easily caught by Tiwary

WD Parnell c Tiwary b Narine 5 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Pune Warriors 103/8   B Kumar 0* (0b)   SP Narine 3.1-0-10-2

19.1

Balaji to Kumar, OUT, bowled him, sneaks through his defences this time! he was looking to play it off the back foot but the ball's gone so low that there was no way he was getting close to it from that position, beaten and the off-stump's lying flat

B Kumar b Balaji 1 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pune Warriors 105/9   Parvez Rasool 1* (3b)   L Balaji 3.1-0-18-2

19.3

Balaji to Parvez Rasool, OUT, whoa, what a catch! Balaji has taken a ripper! he was looking to go down the track and smash it back, the ball was a slower one and never came on to him, still manages to get a decent part of the bat on it, Balaji springs his hand out and grabs a superb catch, reflex, one-handed effort!

Parvez Rasool c & b Balaji 1 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Pune Warriors 106/10   K Upadhyay 1* (1b)   L Balaji 3.3-0-19-3
