Singh to McCullum, FOUR, gets the treatment, a real loosener, short and wide, latches onto it, dispatching it between cover and cover point for a boundary


Singh to McCullum, no run, much better, pitched it fuller on the off, gets across and pushes it to mid-on


Singh to McCullum, no run, back of a length on the off, gets back and punches it to cover


Singh to McCullum, 1 run, good length on the off, pushes at it, gets a thick outside edge to third man for a single


Singh to Ganguly, no run, banged in short, a bouncer on middle, Ganguly ducks under it well


Singh to Ganguly, no run, back of a length outside off, gets back and dabs it to point

Kolkata Knight Riders 10/0   RP Singh 1-0-5-0

Singh to McCullum, no run, fullish on the off, pushed back to the bowler


Singh to McCullum, 1 wide, down the leg side, there have been too many of these at the wrong times in this tournament


Singh to McCullum, 2 runs, straying on the pads, clipped wide of a squarish fine leg for a couple, a valiant diving save prevents a couple of runs


Singh to McCullum, SIX, that's dismissed, banged in short outside off, perfect length for McCullum, gets forward hint and smashes it over deep midwicket, all power there, a crowd killer


Singh to McCullum, no run, came back in after landing on a good length outside off, opens the face to drop it towards point


Singh to McCullum, no run, length ball outside off, came back in just a touch, pushed off the front foot firmly to mid-off


Singh to McCullum, 1 run, dropped, Gibbs was stationed perfectly at a shortish point for that shot, slashed away really hard but he failed to hold on, reacted a little late perhaps but you would expect him to snap those

Kolkata Knight Riders 25/0   RP Singh 2-0-15-0

Singh to Hussey, 1 wide, strays down the leg side, given a wide, gifts a run


Singh to Hussey, 2 runs, well run, came back in just a touch, driven just wide of long-off, Hodge rushes back for the second


Singh to Hussey, no run, banged it short outside off, went for the pull but failed to make contact


Singh to Hussey, 1 run, slower one on the off, comes down the track and drives it cleanly but straight into his partner at the non-striker's end


Singh to Hodge, 1 run, fullish outside off, evades the non-striker this time, drilled past him to long-off


Singh to Hussey, 1 run, banged in short on leg stump, pulled away to deep square leg


Singh to Hodge, 1 run, slower one bowled on a good length on the off, pushed down to long-on, keeps the strike, decent over

Kolkata Knight Riders 111/2   RP Singh 3-0-22-0

Singh to Hussey, (no ball) 1 run, full toss on leg stump, mistimes a pull to deep square leg, just over the waist so given a no-ball


Singh to Saha, 1 run, short of a length outside off, guided to short third for a single


Singh to Hussey, (no ball) FOUR, poor ball, another waist-high no ball, costly stuff, moves across and whips it away wide of short fine for a boundary, RP can't bowl anymore, his second no-ball for height and the rule stipulates that the bowler is out of the attack if he does that

Kolkata Knight Riders 126/3   RP Singh 3.1-0-30-0
