  Kolkata Knight Riders innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b Pollock 1 2 0 0 50.00
0.5 and he wont get! Pollock hits a length and slants the ball in, McCullum is rooted to his crease as he attempts to nudge it away past square leg, he misses and the umpire upholds the appeal, though the ball, to the naked eye, looked to be slipping down leg stump ... but what an over from Pollock 6/2
View dismissal SC Ganguly* c Jayasuriya b Pollock 4 2 1 0 200.00
0.3 edged and a smashing catch by Jayasuriya at wide slip! Pollock strikes with his third ball, forcing Ganguly to reach out and chase the ball and its weld held at slip, diving to his left and taking it above his head, captain takes out captain! 5/1
View dismissal RT Ponting run out (Rahane/Jayasuriya) 19 31 1 0 61.29
13.1 Jayasuriya to Mohammad Hafeez, madness, I say! Hafeez stands and pushes to the off side, starts to run down but then sells Ponting down the river as Rahane swoops in collects, and returns the ball to Jayasuriya, who does the rest .. Ponting harried off down the track and had no chance of getting back ... so his poor IPL run ends with a poor call from Hafeez ... does it remind you of Lara in his ODI career? 77/5
View dismissal DB Das c Uthappa b Bravo 29 20 5 1 145.00
5.3 cracked and well caught! Das gets hold of the short and wide delivery outside off stump but just slaps it into the hands of Uthappa at point, who takes an easy catch to his left and then dofts his cap to the crowd 40/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Nehra b Jayasuriya 17 20 3 0 85.00
11.6 and he gets him coming down the track, then fires it in flat and Hussey, looking to go over long-on, can only give birthday boy Nehra a simple catch running in from the ropes 74/4
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †Shah b Jayasuriya 2 6 0 0 33.33
13.3 edged and taken! Hafeez sees some room and goes for a square-drive, but only manages a thin outside-edge which Saha gleefully snaps up 77/6
LR Shukla not out 40 22 4 2 181.81
View dismissal AB Agarkar c Nehra b Jayasuriya 2 6 0 0 33.33
15.3 another one bites the dust! Agarkar just hits this one down Nehra's throat at deep mid-on and Kolkata are really making a mess of this 90/7
View dismissal M Kartik c Jayasuriya b Fernando 10 11 1 0 90.90
19.3 skips down, Fernando follows him and Kartik just chips it in the air to midwicket, where Jayasuriya runs after it and plucks the catch very well 131/8
