2.3

Sharma to Pathan, FOUR, short and wide and he cashes in, poor delivery first up, cuts it away powerfully over point to start off in style

2.4

Sharma to Pathan, no run, a touch fuller, bringing him forward, he tries to punch that through the off side without getting to the pitch, it leaves him to beat the outside edge

2.5

Sharma to Pathan, 1 run, stays rooted to the crease and taps it between mid-off and cover for a single

Kings XI Punjab 14/1   IK Pathan 5* (3b 1x4)
3.2

Dinda to Pathan, no run, fuller, a teasing line outside off and Pathan is tempted, he attempts a lethargic drive but the ball cuts away to beat the outside edge

3.3

Dinda to Pathan, FOUR, lucky, and pays off, much quicker, short outside off, he got forward to pull that over midwicket, got a thick edge and it flew over slip towards the third-man boundary

3.4

Dinda to Pathan, 1 run, banged in short on leg stump, was quick but Pathan responded well, fending it away without a flourish to clear the infield and get it wide of fine leg for a single

Kings XI Punjab 21/1   IK Pathan 10* (6b 2x4)
4.2

Sharma to Pathan, SIX, has a wild swing at it, slightly slower, a length ball outside off, planted his foot forward and slogged it to clear the deep-midwicket boundary, didn't time it as well as he would have liked, but it had enough on it to take it over the ropes

4.3

Sharma to Pathan, no run, gets forward and drops it towards cover, slightly fuller

4.4

Sharma to Pathan, FOUR, that's dismissed, banged in short and pulls it away with disdain over midwicket, that was a bludgeoned

4.5

Sharma to Pathan, 2 runs, full and wide, makes room and slices it over the infield on the off side for a couple more, he's done a decent job so far

4.6

Sharma to Pathan, 1 run, slower one, bowled at 110.7 kmph, pushed through the covers for a single

Kings XI Punjab 36/1   IK Pathan 23* (11b 3x4 1x6)
5.1

Henriques to Pathan, 1 run, on middle and off, nudged into the leg side for a single

5.3

Henriques to Pathan, no run, full and wide, bowled at 139 kmph, goes at it hard trying ti blaze it over cover, misses

5.4

Henriques to Pathan, FOUR, short and he latches onto it quickly, gets forward and pulls it away behind square, well struck

5.5

Henriques to Pathan, no run, slower one, an offcutter bowled slightly short outside off, Irfan tried to run it past the keeper, missed as it moved away from him

5.6

Henriques to Pathan, FOUR, he's dealt with the short one superbly so far, gets it well in front of square this time, all of his pulls have come off the front foot and this one's no different, swatted it cleanly wide of mid-on

Kings XI Punjab 46/1   IK Pathan 32* (16b 5x4 1x6)
6.2

Ganguly to Pathan, OUT, the bowling change works! Meaty, length ball outside off and he slogs it well towards deep midwicket, but he doesn't time it well enough to clear the ropes as Kartik cups it standing right at the edge of the ropes, and ensures he doesn't lose his balance. Big blow that!

IK Pathan c Kartik b Ganguly 32 (17b 5x4 1x6) SR: 188.23

Kings XI Punjab 47/2   IK Pathan 32 (17b 5x4 1x6)
