Mascarenhas to Sangakkara, FOUR, finally runs off the bat, off the edge rather, this one seamed away after pitching off, and got the edge, wide of slip

Kings XI Punjab 5/1   KC Sangakkara 4* (4b 1x4)   AD Mascarenhas 0.4-0-4-0

Patel to Bopara, FOUR, loosener, gentle-paced, not much wrong with line and length, just short of a length, just outside off, and Bopara crashes it on the up, through covers

Kings XI Punjab 11/1   RS Bopara 5* (8b 1x4)   MM Patel 0.1-0-4-0

Mascarenhas to Bopara, FOUR, scoop, lovely shot, gets down on a knee, across the stumps, gets low enough, and helps it over fine leg

Kings XI Punjab 16/1   RS Bopara 10* (12b 2x4)   AD Mascarenhas 1.2-0-10-0

Mascarenhas to Sangakkara, FOUR, drives haven't worked for him so far, so Sanga slogs, this time he waited for the ball to come on, at 113ks, cleared his front leg, and picked it from in front of stumps and hit it over midwicket

Kings XI Punjab 21/1   KC Sangakkara 9* (10b 2x4)   AD Mascarenhas 2-0-15-0

Kamran Khan to Sangakkara, FOUR, classical, old school, it's a wide half-volley, Sanga gets down a knee, and caresses it through the gap between mid-off and extra cover

Kings XI Punjab 28/2   KC Sangakkara 13* (14b 3x4)   Kamran Khan 2-0-8-1

Pathan to Sangakkara, FOUR, tossed up on leg, and Sanga has seen eneough, he slog-sweeps along the ground, and beats the deep backwards sqaure leg

Kings XI Punjab 38/2   KC Sangakkara 19* (19b 4x4)   YK Pathan 1-0-10-0

Warne to Sangakkara, FOUR, lovely shot, best way to play a spinner, stepped out, got right to the pitch, down on a knee, and lofts it straight down the ground

Kings XI Punjab 68/4   KC Sangakkara 29* (30b 5x4)   SK Warne 1.2-0-13-0

Mascarenhas to Sangakkara, FOUR, short, too short for that pace and if the third man is up, Sanga waits, and just guides it over the short thirdman

Kings XI Punjab 80/4   KC Sangakkara 38* (37b 6x4)   AD Mascarenhas 3.1-0-23-0

Warne to Pathan, FOUR, just short of a length, doesn't turn this time, and Irfan waits and cuts this through the off side, top shot

Kings XI Punjab 102/4   IK Pathan 32* (22b 1x4 2x6)   SK Warne 2.1-0-20-0

Warne to Pathan, FOUR, top sweep shot, it's pitched on the pads, and he gets nice and low, and finds the gap between deep backward square and deep fine leg

Kings XI Punjab 122/4   IK Pathan 38* (31b 2x4 2x6)   SK Warne 3.5-0-36-0

Kamran Khan to Sangakkara, FOUR, and Sanga steps down and flat-batts it straight down the ground, what a shot, it was hit on the up

Kings XI Punjab 128/5   KC Sangakkara 59* (49b 7x4 1x6)   Kamran Khan 3.3-0-14-2

Patel to Chawla, FOUR, and Chawla has made up a bit for that run-out of Sanga with a fantastic shot, it was just short of a yorker, on off, and Chawla makes room and crisply hits it square of thirdman for four

Kings XI Punjab 134/6   PP Chawla 4* (3b 1x4)   MM Patel 3.1-0-19-2
