7.3

Henriques to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, picked the length early but it probably didn't bounce as much as he expected, clattered it wide of long-on for a couple, brings up the 50, it's taken some effort

7.4

Henriques to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, good length outside off, he charges forward and tries to strike it over mid-off, gets a thick outside edge and it flies off over a towering Gayle at slip for a boundary

Kings XI Punjab 58/3   Yuvraj Singh 8* (11b 1x4)
9.2

Shukla to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, Yashpal Singh takes the catch of the tournament! Replays, though, indicate that wasn't taken cleanly, what a let down. Short on middle, seemed like a harmless delivery and he pulled it wide of deep square leg, Yashpal ran yards and timed his dive-to-the-left to perfection but grounded it with his outstretched left hand as he landed

Kings XI Punjab 60/3   Yuvraj Singh 9* (12b 1x4)

Gayle to Yuvraj Singh, 5 wides, terrible, fires it in outside leg and gifts them five runs as McCullum has no chance to get behind it, atrocious

11.1

Gayle to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, and again, poor start, but much slower through the air so he only concedes a run

11.1

Gayle to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, much better, flighted on middle, goes through with the drive, gets a thick inside edge wide of short fine for a couple

11.2

Gayle to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, another one, poor stuff this, down the leg side again and McCullum isn't happy

11.2

Gayle to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, gets forward and drives it wide of cover for a single

11.4

Gayle to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, and again, drawing him forward with the flight, he presents the full face to get long-off into action again

Ganguly to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, short on the off, punched down the ground to long-off

12.3

Ganguly to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, full and wide, launches into it but Ganguly's bowling to his field, though it's creamed through the off side, it finds deep cover positioned exactly for that shot

12.5

Ganguly to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, on the stumps, waited for it and chopped it down to third man, brings up the 100, they've recovered well due to these two

Shukla to Yuvraj Singh, no run, short and wide, tried to heave that over midwicket but failed to connect

Shukla to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, does so this time, similar delivery but he plays it much straighter, slapping it hard past the bowler to beat long-on

14.5

Shukla to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, massive, length ball on the off stump and he got under it nicely, timing his loft beautifully to comfortably clear long-on, Harsha Bhogle, surprisingly, missed out saying "that's a DLF maximum". Is he in for a reprimand now?

14.6

Shukla to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, short and wide, the movement takes it further away as he goes for a mighty pull

14.6

Shukla to Yuvraj Singh, no run, short of a length on middle, is not able to do much with it

Kings XI Punjab 117/4   Yuvraj Singh 34* (26b 2x4 2x6)
