Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kolkata Knight Riders

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 6 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

5.5

Kallis to Hussey, SIX, mis-hit for a six! slower ball no less, Hussey steps out, makes room, but gets the bottom of the bat, and plays it with one hand off the handle, over covers for six

Kolkata Knight Riders 34/2   DJ Hussey 11* (5b 1x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 2.5-0-17-0

9.3

Kumble to Hussey, SIX, what a shot, clears his leg, and lofts this straight over long-off, effortless, and once he made his mind he had to go aerial he went the distance

Kolkata Knight Riders 64/2   DJ Hussey 28* (14b 2x4 2x6)   A Kumble 1.3-0-8-0

16.2

Akhil to McCullum, SIX, McCullum looks to get in his element, slog-sweeps Akhil over midwicket, not much pace on it anyway

Kolkata Knight Riders 120/3   BB McCullum 48* (47b 5x4 1x6)   B Akhil 2.2-0-19-1

16.3

Akhil to McCullum, SIX, not sure if that chat helped the bowler, this is short, into the pads, at gentle pace, and McCullum says thank you very much, pulling it over deep backward square, and gets his first 50 of the season

Kolkata Knight Riders 126/3   BB McCullum 54* (48b 5x4 2x6)   B Akhil 2.3-0-25-1

19.6

Kallis to Saha, SIX, and Saha ends it brilliantly, steps out, gets a fulltoss, and smashes it over midwicket, what a shot, what an end

Kolkata Knight Riders 173/4   WP Saha 10* (5b 1x6)   JH Kallis 4-0-40-0
