0.1

Sharma to Bopara, 1 run, angling into the right hander, gets back and tickles it behind square to get off the mark

0.2

Sharma to Goel, no run, cramping him for room there, brought it back in after landing on a good length outside off, tapped into the off side

0.3

Sharma to Goel, no run, beauty! Getting it to leave the batsman this time, spat away as Goel tried to prod at it, beating the edge

0.4

Sharma to Goel, no run, much wider, not enough to induce Goel into playing a shot, he lets it go

0.5

Sharma to Goel, no run, jagged back in and zipped right through him, he got forward to defend expecting it to hold its line but it nipped back to zip through the gate

0.6

Sharma to Goel, no run, short and wide, slashes hard from the crease, not much foot movement there, fails to connect

Kings XI Punjab 1/0   I Sharma 1-0-1-0

2.1

Sharma to Goel, no run, back of a length, getting it to leave the left hander, Goel plays that slightly away from his body, misses

2.2

Sharma to Goel, OUT, gone! Goel was getting a little desperate there, Ishant had done well to bog him down, landed on a good length and Goel tried to force that powerfully through the off side from the crease, was not the pitch, it took the outside edge and Gayle standing at first slip timed his jump perfectly to snap a sharp chance

K Goel c Gayle b Sharma 0 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

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

2.6

Sharma to Bopara, 1 run, easily done, just straying in line there, angling it into the pads and he tucks it away to fine leg to keep the strike

Kings XI Punjab 15/1   I Sharma 2-0-7-1

4.1

Sharma to Bopara, 1 run, short on middle, gets back and drops it short of mid-on for a single

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   I Sharma 3-0-21-1

13.3

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, good stuff, bowled on a good length and got it to move away as Sanga came forward to drive it on the up

13.4

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, short, bowled at 135 kmph on middle, clatters it to cover who's positioned perfectly

13.5

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, trying to improvise, this is a good over, makes room to help it on its way over the keeper and a widish third man but misses

13.6

Sharma to Sangakkara, 1 run, makes room and Ishant chases him, drags it short and Sanga pulls it down to long-on

Kings XI Punjab 104/3   I Sharma 4-0-24-1
