Kolkata Knight Riders won by 11 runs (D/L method)
Played at Kingsmead, Durban (neutral venue)
21 April 2009 (20-over match)

Shukla to Sangakkara, 1 run, short on middle and leg, pulled away to deep square leg


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


Shukla to Sangakkara, 2 runs, short on the off, gets across and uses his wrists to tickle it wide of deep square leg for a couple


Shukla to Sangakkara, no run, gets back and drops it into the off side


Shukla to Sangakkara, FOUR, Sangakkara chops it away wide of point, was just slightly short and he was onto it quickly, it's started to drizzle a bit down in Durban


Shukla to Sangakkara, 1 run, gets across and pulls it away to deep midwicket for a single, time for the strategy break now

Kings XI Punjab 67/3   LR Shukla 1-0-9-0

Shukla to Sangakkara, OUT, run out, pulled in front of square towards midwicket where Chopra slides and returns a throw back to the keeper, Sanga is more than halfway down the pitch but Yuvraj doesn't respond, he's found miles short of his ground as McCullum collects a slightly wayward throw to clip the bails

KC Sangakkara run out 26 (24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 108.33


Shukla to Jayawardene, 1 wide, fired it wide of leg and Jayawardene tried to clip it fine, McCullum collected well but missed the stumps on the first attempt, the batsman though managed to have his foot rooted in the crease


Shukla to Jayawardene, 1 run


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


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?


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


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   LR Shukla 2-0-22-0
