Dinda to Bopara, no run, short of a good length on the off and moving back in, gets back and punches it to point


Dinda to Bopara, FOUR, just a fraction short and he cashes in, gets forward, seizes the length early and pulls it away over square leg, first boundary of the innings


Dinda to Bopara, FOUR, he's spoilt the over, pitched on a good length drawing him forward, Bopara leans into it and squeezes it past a diving cover, was beautifully timed

Kings XI Punjab 9/0   AB Dinda 1-0-8-0

Dinda to Bopara, 1 run, slower one this time, an offcutter, gets forward, waits for it, opens the face to guide it down to third man


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

Dinda to Jayawardene, 1 run, inswinger landing on a length on the off, driven through the line to long-off


Dinda to Kohli, OUT, got onto him quick although a speed of 123.7 kmph doesn't seem too fast, tried to clear midwicket off that short ball, was a little too high, got the top edge and McCullum didn't have to move much to complete the catch

Dinda to Jayawardene, FOUR, superb shot, dropped it short outside off and Jayawardene walked across to pull it powerfully over short fine, landed just inside the ropes, struck it on the half-volley


Dinda to Jayawardene, SIX, that's sailed into the stands, meaty half-volley on the off and he smashed it well over deep midwicket, deserved to go but he executed it brilliantly


Dinda to Jayawardene, 2 runs, full toss outside off, made room and sliced it behind point for a couple more, important runs these, they've got past 150
