Indian Premier League - 65th match

Kolkata Knight Riders v Pune Warriors

Pune Warriors won by 7 runs

0.1

Balaji to Uthappa, no run, on the off stump, good length too and he's immediately back and defending to the off side, wanted a single but the fielders converge from everywhere

0.2

Balaji to Uthappa, no run, wide, outside the off stump and he cuts it, was trying to place it but does not get any of it, hit straight to backward point

0.2

Balaji to Uthappa, no run, shorter in length and that's tucked to the leg side for a single, was to the left of square-leg

0.3

Balaji to Uthappa, FOUR, did I see a bit of swing away from the bat there, just a little bit and on a length, he only pushes forward, gets it off the middle of the bat and through the covers for a four

0.4

Balaji to Uthappa, no run, brings it back to the off stump line and pulls his length back a little, defended back to the bowler

0.5

Balaji to Uthappa, 2 runs, and that's drifted far too down his pads, easily tucked away to fine-leg for a couple of runs

0.6

Balaji to Uthappa, no run, punches it off the back foot into the covers, not for runs

Pune Warriors 6/0   L Balaji 1-0-6-0

2.1

Balaji to Uthappa, no run, goes down the track and tries to thwack it over the in field, gets nowhere near the middle of the bat and it rolls over to short mid-wicket

2.2

Balaji to Uthappa, SIX, short of length and this time he gets it off the middle, no moving around in the crease, just waited for it, and spank, six over mid-wicket!

2.3

Balaji to Uthappa, 1 run, and now he opens the face of the bat, guides it through to third-man for a single

2.4

Balaji to Finch, no run, shorter, wider and slower outside the off stump, he wanted to give it his all, but the lack of pace defeats the shot, it isn't timed too well to the covers

2.5

Balaji to Finch, 1 run, fuller this time and on the off stump, was looking to push it away and gets an inside edge to mid-wicket for a single

2.6

Balaji to Uthappa, SIX, and again, that's another six and this time he does move down the track to get create the power, it was a short of length delivery and look how he's treated it, slapped it away!

Pune Warriors 30/0   L Balaji 2-0-20-0

12.1

Balaji to MK Pandey, no run, shorter in length and wants to crack it through the off side, gets it well but straight to the short cover fielder

12.2

Balaji to MK Pandey, 1 run, shorter, slower and he was looking to pull it, does not get it off the middle, Pathan throws it to the bowler from square-leg and does not hit, could have been out

12.3

Balaji to Finch, 1 run, wide, half volley and he drives it through the covers, seems like it came off the bottom of the bat and he's signalling at the dugout for a new willow

12.4

Balaji to MK Pandey, 1 run, wide outside the off stump again, that's good bowling against two batsmen wanting to go after him, outside edge to short third-man

12.5

Balaji to Finch, OUT, bowled him, Balaji has one, it was shorter in length and the batsman was looking to pull it away, the ball seems to have kept a tad low, hasn't come on too quickly probably and he's bowled

AJ Finch b Balaji 48 (53m 32b 2x4 3x6) SR: 150.00

Balaji to MK Pandey, FOUR, outside the off and he's scooped it over the off side for a four, gets it over extra cover that

17.3

Balaji to MK Pandey, 2 runs, and now smashes it over the bowler's head, gets a single and a bit of a misfield allows them to get back for the second

17.4

Balaji to MK Pandey, FOUR, shorter, wider and there was no fielder at third-man, easily opens the face of the bat and gets it over the in-fielders to get to his 50!

17.5

Balaji to MK Pandey, 1 run, wider again but in the block-hole, opens the face of the bat and guides it to short third-man

17.6

Balaji to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, shorter in length, slower too and Yuvraj looked like he knew what was coming, waited and then smacked, the long-on was wider and he's hit it straighter and beaten that fielder
