Harbhajan Singh to Goel, OUT, stumped, beaten by the flight, he hadn't gave it too much air this over, and saved it for the end of the over, Goel's eyes lit up, was drawn out of the crease, missed his attempt to clear long-on as the ball spun away and Pinal Shah did the rest

K Goel st †Shah b Harbhajan Singh 12 (12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 18/1   RS Bopara 6* (11b)   Harbhajan Singh 0.5-0-8-1

Bravo to Bopara, OUT, another bowling change, and another breakthrough! Poor short, good length outside off and moving away, drives at it hard, gets a thick edge and Tendulkar at a widish slip snaps a dolly

RS Bopara c Tendulkar b Bravo 6 (14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Kings XI Punjab 18/2   KC Sangakkara 0* (1b)   DJ Bravo 0.3-0-0-1

Duminy to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, excellent catch, struck powerfully but flat, it was bowled a touch quicker on leg stump and he stepped out to cart that in the direction of long-on, didn't get much elevation and Zaheer ran a few steps to his right, dived forward and plucked a sharp chance

Yuvraj Singh c Khan b Duminy 10 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

Kings XI Punjab 41/3   KC Sangakkara 11* (12b 1x4)   JP Duminy 1.3-0-7-1

Jayasuriya to Jayawardene, OUT, a wicket right after the tactical break, for the umpteenth time, low full toss on the off stump, Mahela swings hard, connects well but it's flat, Dhawan moves a couple of yards to his right and takes a well-judged catch

DPMD Jayawardene c Dhawan b Jayasuriya 7 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Kings XI Punjab 52/4   KC Sangakkara 13* (15b 1x4)   ST Jayasuriya 0.3-0-2-1

Khan to Pathan, OUT, struck well, but again, finds the fielder, banged in short on middle, Irfan is onto it quickly, gets forward and pulls it away straight to a perfectly positioned Bravo at deep midwicket, Punjab are sliding here

IK Pathan c Bravo b Khan 7 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Kings XI Punjab 84/5   KC Sangakkara 30* (29b 1x4 1x6)   Z Khan 2.3-0-13-1

Malinga to Mota, OUT, timber, attempted yorker again, misdirected though, going down leg but Mota makes way and tries to flick it away on the leg side, misses, the ball clips his pads and crashes into the stumps

WA Mota b Malinga 5 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Kings XI Punjab 97/6   KC Sangakkara 33* (34b 1x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 2.2-0-6-1

Malinga to Chawla, OUT, lethal yorker, Chawla had no answer to that one, fired in at close to 140 kmph, failed to get his bat down, was done in by the pace and the offstump goes for a stroll

PP Chawla b Malinga 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kings XI Punjab 97/7   KC Sangakkara 33* (34b 1x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 2.4-0-6-2

Bravo to Sangakkara, OUT, run out, tries to be a little too smart, slower one bowled on a good length on the off, tries to reverse-paddle it, misses and Shah throws down the stumps on the attempted single to prevent Punjab from hitting six-an-over

RR Powar run out 10 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 119/8   KC Sangakkara 45* (44b 2x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 3-0-24-1
