  Kolkata Knight Riders innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SC Ganguly* c Badrinath b Joginder Sharma 12 48 19 1 0 63.15
9.3 Ganguly falls! a slower one this time, outside off again, Ganguly tries to loft it over the infield but a leading edge balloons up straight to Badrinath at cover, he keeps his eye on the ball and doesn't make any mistake, this is big trouble now. Chennai well and truly on top. 70/5
View dismissal BB McCullum c Raina b Oram 24 12 12 2 2 200.00
2.3 got 'em, Oram strikes, this is a huge wicket, McCullum was looking for another big score, full ball on middle and he tries to flick it to the leg side but can only manage a leading edge, pops up to the extra-cover fielder who makes no mistake, Chennai erupts 32/1
View dismissal RT Ponting c Raina b Oram 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
2.4 and he goes first ball, that's his second first-ball duck in the tournament, pushes a full ball in the air but that's straight to Suresh Raina at cover, he's mobbed by his mates in no time and this sell-out crowd is going bananas 32/2
View dismissal WP Saha b Gony 27 16 16 5 1 168.75
5.5 Castled! You can fool some of the people all of the time ... Gony has final laugh, full and jags back in, through the gate and crashes into middle and off, he's bowled a fine over, conceded a four and a six to sharp deliveries and struck back well, rewarded for some fine bowling 61/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Badrinath b Amarnath 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
7.2 another one, Palani strikes, short and wide, not the greatest of balls but cut straight to point for an easy catch to Badrinath. David Hussey could have put that anyway but struck it to the fielder. Amarnath comes back well after conceding the most expensive over in the tournament (in the last match). His famous line of victims read: Tendulkar, Shaun Pollock, David Hussey 64/4
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Joginder Sharma b Amarnath 16 32 24 1 0 66.66
14.4 another wicket! and what a catch! Hafeez tries to paddle it cutely towards fine leg but Joginder is at short fine leg and alert enough to pouch a low, sharp chance, the batsman walks and Palani is over the moon. Kolkata yet to reach 100 and have little to play with now. Deep trouble 98/6
View dismissal LR Shukla run out (†Dhoni/Joginder Sharma) 42 48 33 4 1 127.27
19.5 from Joginder Sharma, that's gone and what fine thinking by the fielders, Shukla can't do much with the yorker and Ishant wants a single, Dhoni throws the ball back to Joginder but the bowler doesn't take the bails off immediately, Ishant is walking back to the pavilion and Shukla is outside the crease when Dhoni signals to Joginder to take the bails off before Parthiv forces him to break the stumps. At the point when the bowler did that, Shukla was out and Ishant in. The two keepers (Dhoni and Parthiv) engineered that. 145/9
View dismissal AB Agarkar c Muralitharan b Gony 11 11 9 1 0 122.22
17.2 slower one again and he's holed out, Agarkar checks his shot this time, lazy loft to long-on and Murali is waiting for the catch there, he doesn't drop them and Gony picks up his second. 121/7
View dismissal M Kartik c & b Oram 3 5 3 0 0 100.00
18.2 slower one again, Kartik is too early on the shot, checks his shot and offers a simple skier to the bowler, simple caught and bowled, Kolkata slide deeper 127/8
