21 April 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Patel to Goel, OUT, A fab yorker and Munaf exacts his revenge. It was fired in the blockhole and on the base of the off stump, Goel tried to bring his bat down in a hurry. Too late. Death knell.

K Goel b Patel 26 (21b 3x4 2x6) SR: 123.80

Kings XI Punjab 34/1   JR Hopes 8* (8b 2x4)   MM Patel 2.5-0-21-1

Warne to Sangakkara, OUT, Warne gets his first wicket of the tournament. He flighted it full outside off, Sangakkara tried to thrash it down the ground, the bat-face shut a touch and Warne was in the way. He took the catch and calmly threw the ball away. As if he expected a return catch. The magician is at his tricks again

KC Sangakkara c & b Warne 20 (8b 3x4 1x6) SR: 250.00

Kings XI Punjab 56/2   JR Hopes 10* (10b 2x4)   SK Warne 0.3-0-2-1

Salunkhe to Jayawardene, OUT, Salunkhe, the winner of the Mumbai leg of the reality show Cricket Star, has got rid of Mahela. Lovely loopy flighted one had Mahela charging out for a big hit but it spun past the ambitious swing of the bat. Stumped. Salunkhe is ecstatic and lets out a huge roar of joy

DPMD Jayawardene st †Kamran Akmal b Salunkhe 2 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kings XI Punjab 64/3   JR Hopes 15* (12b 2x4)   D Salunkhe 0.3-0-5-1

Warne to Hopes, OUT, Warne does it with a topspinner! It landed on length, on the off stump line and straightened, Hopes, again, went for his slog, missed and was struck on the line of off stump. Whether it would have turned a little and missed off was the question. the umpire was convinced there was enough over spin for the ball to slide through straight and raised his finger

JR Hopes lbw b Warne 16 (16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 73/4   Yuvraj Singh 6* (4b 1x4)   SK Warne 2-0-8-2

Warne to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Yuvraj, never a great player of good quality spin, has been done in by Warne. It was a loopy flighted one that was slightly slower in pace, and it broke back in from the off stump line. Yuvraj had gone for his favourite sweep - his get out shot in tough situations against spin- missed and was struck on the back leg

Yuvraj Singh lbw b Warne 57 (34b 6x4 3x6) SR: 167.64

Kings XI Punjab 136/5   IK Pathan 12* (17b 1x6)   SK Warne 3.5-0-19-3

Trivedi to Pathan, OUT, Cleaned up by a yorker. He has served quite a few yorkers and well directed at that. Irfan had a big swing, the ball missed the bat but connected with the leg stump

IK Pathan b Trivedi 12 (19b 0x4 1x6) SR: 63.15

Kings XI Punjab 136/6   S Sohal 0* (1b)   SK Trivedi 3.2-0-23-1

Trivedi to Lee, OUT, But gets his man this time. Follows the full one with a short rising delivery and Brett Lee top edges his intended upper cut.

B Lee c †Kamran Akmal b Trivedi 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kings XI Punjab 136/7   S Sohal 0* (1b)   SK Trivedi 3.4-0-23-2

Patel to Sohal, 1 run, OUT, Another wicket. It was sliced to deep backward point and he turned for the second run. But the throw was flat, straight and at Kamran Akmal who broke the stumps. No need for the third umpire to get in. Given out by the on-field umpire. He was that short.

S Sohal run out 4 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 149/8   PP Chawla 9* (5b 1x4)   MM Patel 4-0-36-1
