Played at Kingsmead, Durban (neutral venue)
29 April 2009 (20-over match)

Pietersen to McCullum, OUT, oh lord, whats happening! Its a first-baller! I've lost count of how many times this has happened this season! KP tosses it up outside off stump, McCullum cuts straight into the hands of the point fielder, who didn't have to move an inch

BB McCullum c Kohli b Pietersen 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 0/1   CH Gayle 0* (0b)   KP Pietersen 0.1-0-0-1

Kumble to Hodge, OUT, got em with the slider! Kumble flights it up on a length and the ball skids on to hit Hodge just around the knee roll, very late on the shot, and Mark Benson raises the finger

BJ Hodge lbw b Kumble 17 (15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 113.33

Kolkata Knight Riders 45/2   CH Gayle 22* (19b 4x4)   A Kumble 0.5-0-1-1

Kumar to Ganguly, OUT, and the short ball works again, how many times in this man's career have we seen him succumb to that, even I've lost count! After the fuller slower ball, PK changes up with a short delivery on the stumps and Ganguly makes a real mess of that, just lobbing it over the infield and straight to the man running in from the deep midwicket boundary, easiest catch he'll get

SC Ganguly c Kallis b Kumar 1 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Kolkata Knight Riders 54/3   CH Gayle 30* (27b 5x4)   P Kumar 2.3-0-11-1

Appanna to Gayle, OUT, gone! Gayle swings across to one gently flighted up, thinks he's found the gap but Goswami keeps his eyes on the ball running around from midwicket and takes the catch, falling over after doing so just for a bit of effect

CH Gayle c Goswami b Appanna 40 (37b 6x4 0x6) SR: 108.10

Kolkata Knight Riders 70/4   MN van Wyk 6* (7b)   KP Appanna 0.2-0-4-1

Kumble to Saha, OUT, another one to Kumble, sliding it down the pads, Saha gets too much under it and top-edges a forceful slow-sweep straight to KP, jogging to his right from backward point

WP Saha c Pietersen b Kumble 21 (14b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 110/5   MN van Wyk 25* (24b 2x4)   A Kumble 3.3-0-14-2

van der Merwe to Shukla, OUT, up comes Mark Benson's finger in a flash! van der Merwe flights it up slowly on the stumps, Lokhi is late on the sweep, the ball looks to have hit him pretty much in front and the umpire has few doubts

LR Shukla lbw b van der Merwe 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kolkata Knight Riders 118/6   MN van Wyk 30* (28b 2x4)   RE van der Merwe 2.4-0-20-1
