Harris to Ganguly, FOUR, whips it off his pads, slightly short on leg stump, turns it away really fine to beat fine leg, who's a little too square

Kolkata Knight Riders 5/0   SC Ganguly 4* (1b 1x4)   RJ Harris 0.3-0-4-0

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

Kolkata Knight Riders 9/0   BB McCullum 4* (3b 1x4)   RP Singh 0.1-0-4-0

Harmeet Singh to Hodge, FOUR, good relief, short on the off, a long hop, rocks back and pulls it away through square leg, powerfully struck

Kolkata Knight Riders 44/1   BJ Hodge 9* (13b 1x4)   Harmeet Singh 1.1-0-7-0

Harmeet Singh to Ganguly, FOUR, excellent shot, just a fraction wide, stays his ground and slashes it hard wide of a diving point for a pressure-relieving boundary

Kolkata Knight Riders 55/1   SC Ganguly 18* (24b 2x4)   Harmeet Singh 2.2-0-15-0

Ojha to Ganguly, FOUR, Ojha hurls it flat, Ganguly reaches forward, is not quite to the pitch but still manages to make sound contact, slog-sweeping it between deep midwicket and deep square leg for a boundary

Kolkata Knight Riders 64/1   SC Ganguly 24* (27b 3x4)   PP Ojha 1.1-0-7-0

Symonds to Hodge, FOUR, squeezes a four, finally, drilled through the off side wide of extra cover, Gibbs ran well to his left, dived to pull it back in but instead, palmed it onto the ropes

Kolkata Knight Riders 77/1   BJ Hodge 24* (27b 2x4)   A Symonds 2.5-0-13-0

Sharma to Hodge, FOUR, spoils the over, bowled short on middle, a long hop, dealt with appropriately by Hodge who swivels and pulls it away behind square leg

Kolkata Knight Riders 89/2   BJ Hodge 33* (31b 3x4)   RG Sharma 2-0-15-1

Ojha to Hodge, FOUR, they're picking up pace now, bowled full on middle, swept away firmly between deep square leg and deep midwicket for four more

Kolkata Knight Riders 102/2   BJ Hodge 38* (33b 4x4)   PP Ojha 2.5-0-22-0

Harris to Hodge, FOUR, shot, low full toss on middle, frees his arms and swings it away wide of a diving Venugopal Rao at deep midwicket for a boundary

Kolkata Knight Riders 115/2   BJ Hodge 46* (38b 5x4)   RJ Harris 3.2-0-17-1

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   DJ Hussey 17* (10b 1x4 1x6)   RP Singh 3.1-0-30-0

Harmeet Singh to Hussey, FOUR, Harmeet's no better, hands him a gift, short and wide, Hussey makes room and swats it into the bug gap between long-off and deep cover, four more

Kolkata Knight Riders 130/3   DJ Hussey 21* (11b 2x4 1x6)   Harmeet Singh 3.1-0-24-0
