Patel to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and Munaf strikes first ball too, what does Warnie tell them, four overs from this end, and three first deliveries have resulted in wickets. this was a superb delivery, length ball, on off, seamed away, and Yuvraj hung his rod, and Rawat caught the edge

Patel to Jayawardene, OUT, No. 2 for Munaf, this is pure pressure, just short of a length, Mahela looks to loft over mid-off, the ball stops a touch, and Mahela has to check the shot, but he ends up lobbing it straight to mid-off

18.1

Kamran Khan to Pathan, OUT, If Warne can't, his prodigy will, off the inside edge, this is full and fast, and Irfan looks to go off side, but is late into it, and gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. This will pull Punjab back after a superb partnership

IK Pathan b Kamran Khan 39 (33b 2x4 2x6) SR: 118.18

Kings XI Punjab 123/5   KC Sangakkara 55* (48b 6x4 1x6)   Kamran Khan 3.1-0-10-2

18.6

Kamran Khan to Sangakkara, OUT, and he is run out, poor thinking by Chawla, Sanga is beaten by the short delivery, but wants to come through for a bye, but Chawla doesn't respond, and Sanga is caught yards short. Agreed there wasn't a single there, but Chawla should have sacrificed his wicket to keep Sanga on strike

KC Sangakkara run out 60 (51b 7x4 1x6) SR: 117.64

Kings XI Punjab 130/6   PP Chawla 0* (2b)   Kamran Khan 4-0-15-2
