Indian Premier League - 6th match

Kings XI Punjab v Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 11 runs (D/L method)

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

Kings XI Punjab 9/1   RS Bopara 9* (7b 2x4)   I Sharma 1.2-0-1-1

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   RS Bopara 15* (14b 2x4)   SC Ganguly 0.2-0-1-1

6.4

Ganguly to Bopara, OUT, Dada, you beauty! Shah Rukh has a look of satisfaction on his face. Short and wide, Bopara goes for the cut, gets a thin edge straight to McCullum who takes a sharp catch standing up

RS Bopara c †McCullum b Ganguly 15 (15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 48/3   KC Sangakkara 1* (1b)   SC Ganguly 0.4-0-2-2

14.1

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

Kings XI Punjab 104/4   Yuvraj Singh 24* (22b 1x4 1x6)   LR Shukla 1.1-0-9-0

15.4

Henriques to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, much quicker this time, bowled at 135.1 kmph, he tried to swat that past the on-side field but mistimed it straight to Yashpal Singh at deep midwicket, took it cleanly this time, clutching it to his chest

Yuvraj Singh c Yashpal Singh b Henriques 38 (28b 3x4 2x6) SR: 135.71

Kings XI Punjab 122/5   DPMD Jayawardene 2* (3b)   MC Henriques 2.4-0-23-1

17.2

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

T Kohli c †McCullum b Dinda 1 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Kings XI Punjab 131/6   DPMD Jayawardene 10* (9b 1x4)   AB Dinda 2.2-0-16-1
