van der Merwe to Gayle, FOUR, there's the first boundary as Gayle just picks this with the spin, off the pads, and beats the sweeper out at deep square leg

Kolkata Knight Riders 7/1   CH Gayle 5* (4b 1x4)   RE van der Merwe 0.2-0-4-0

van der Merwe to Gayle, FOUR, hard shot that, just took it on the full and drove it past mid-off

Kolkata Knight Riders 13/1   CH Gayle 10* (7b 2x4)   RE van der Merwe 1-0-10-0

Pietersen to Gayle, FOUR, bad ball, a rank long hop which gets the Gayle treatment, it was so slow that ball, that he could have gone for a cup of tea before pulling that over midwicket

Kolkata Knight Riders 18/1   CH Gayle 14* (8b 3x4)   KP Pietersen 1.4-0-8-1

Pankaj Singh to Hodge, FOUR, again he exposes all the stumps and reaches out to slap a wide ball between cover and point for four

Kolkata Knight Riders 33/1   BJ Hodge 13* (11b 1x4 1x6)   Pankaj Singh 0.4-0-10-0

Pankaj Singh to Hodge, FOUR, top shot that from Hodge, again using his feet to create room and this time he smashes a wide ball through cover for four to end the over

Kolkata Knight Riders 37/1   BJ Hodge 17* (13b 2x4 1x6)   Pankaj Singh 1-0-14-0

Kumar to Gayle, FOUR, sweetly timed, hitting the ball that angles in with power past mid-on

Kolkata Knight Riders 43/1   CH Gayle 20* (14b 4x4)   P Kumar 0.4-0-6-0

Kumble to Gayle, FOUR, catch is the call from someone as Gayle sizes up this gentle floater, clears the front leg, and slogs over midwicket but the ball drops safely and beats the running sweeper

Kolkata Knight Riders 52/2   CH Gayle 28* (25b 5x4)   A Kumble 1.2-0-5-1

Appanna to Gayle, FOUR, starts off with one sliding down the pads, full toss, and he steers it fine

Kolkata Knight Riders 70/3   CH Gayle 40* (36b 6x4)   KP Appanna 0.1-0-4-0

Appanna to van Wyk, FOUR, too wide outside leg stump and he sweeps hard, top placement that

Kolkata Knight Riders 84/4   MN van Wyk 13* (12b 1x4)   KP Appanna 1.1-0-12-1

Appanna to van Wyk, FOUR, full and flat down leg stump and swept away with superb placement

Kolkata Knight Riders 100/4   MN van Wyk 23* (21b 2x4)   KP Appanna 2.3-0-23-1

Kumar to van Wyk, FOUR, safest place to score your runs! PK keeps it nice and full, van Wyk drives with little footwork and gets a fine inside-edge that sneaks narrowly past leg stump

Kolkata Knight Riders 126/6   MN van Wyk 36* (30b 3x4)   P Kumar 3.2-0-18-1

Kumar to van Wyk, FOUR, now there's a much better shot for the same result, he just gets across and plays a premeditated paddle to the fuller ball and with fine leg up thats all the way to the ropes

Kolkata Knight Riders 130/6   MN van Wyk 40* (31b 4x4)   P Kumar 3.3-0-22-1
