20 May 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Warne to Ganguly, SIX, huge, Ganguly says enough is enough, down the ground and an emphatic sweep that's lofted over square leg, it's flatter but he can murder spinners, way over the ropes for a biggie, the first six of the day

Kolkata Knight Riders 67/2   SC Ganguly 25* (24b 2x4 1x6)   SK Warne 1.2-0-9-0

Warne to Das, SIX, ladies and gentlemen, introducing Debabrata, down the track and swings clean, what a shot, whistles towards the sight-screen for a biggie, Shane is a bit stunned, Eden is abuzz, that's as smooth a straight hit as you will see tonight.

Kolkata Knight Riders 78/3   DB Das 7* (3b 1x6)   SK Warne 2.2-0-17-0

Pathan to Das, SIX, that's tonked, short and outside off, Debabrata stands and pulls that with fury, way, way over the midwicket stands for six, that's gone 81 metres, they're planning a party in Siliguri

Kolkata Knight Riders 89/3   DB Das 16* (7b 2x6)   YK Pathan 1.2-0-10-1

Trivedi to Shukla, SIX, Shukla begind off in fourth gear! He moves towards the off side, swivels and pulls a short ball over the fine leg boundary, smashing start

Kolkata Knight Riders 102/4   LR Shukla 6* (1b 1x6)   SK Trivedi 3-0-26-1

Watson to Saha, SIX, blitzer! short of a length and Saha has pumelled that crisply over square leg for six, that's off the sweet spot of the bat and soars away, why is Watson bowling so short?

Kolkata Knight Riders 136/7   WP Saha 8* (3b 1x6)   SR Watson 3.5-0-36-0

Sohail Tanvir to Umar Gul, SIX, that's clobbered way over midwicket for six, that's a quick and full one, Gul stands up tall and swings clean, what a hit, some Pakistani love here

Kolkata Knight Riders 142/7   Umar Gul 7* (3b 1x6)   Sohail Tanvir 3.2-0-21-2
