Indian Premier League, 49th match: Deccan Chargers v Kings XI Punjab at Johannesburg, May 17, 2009
Kings XI Punjab won by 1 run
Played at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (neutral venue)
17 May 2009 (20-over match)

Suman to Pathan, FOUR, and RP is pedestrian here, this is just dabbed towards short third, where RP runs towards the ball and doesn't dive, then turns at right angles after the ball passes him, the chase is not too hot either, and the desperate dive in the end doesn't prevent four


Suman to Pathan, no run, thrown up on leg, and Irfan misses on the sweep

Kings XI Punjab 116/5   IK Pathan 4* (2b 1x4)

Singh to Pathan, 1 run, back of a length, tailing in towards the stumps, and played with an open face towards third man


Singh to Pathan, 2 runs, just short of yorker length, crisply hit, with an open face, right enough of sweeper-cover to allow them to come back for two


Singh to Pathan, 1 run, bouncer, and Irfan pulls off the front foot, and it's just a single to deep backward square

Kings XI Punjab 122/5   IK Pathan 8* (5b 1x4)

Harris to Pathan, no run, back of a length, angling across, Pathan swishes, and connects just the air


Harris to Pathan, FOUR, that's a badly needed boundary, poor bowling, length ball, on the pads, Pathan gets under it, and hits it to deep backward square


Harris to Pathan, 1 run, makes room this time, this is fuller, angling across, and he hits towards sweeper-cover

Kings XI Punjab 127/6   IK Pathan 13* (8b 2x4)

Singh to Pathan, 2 runs, full, outside off, cross-batted towards wide of long-on, they run through for two, they go to the third umpire at the striker's end, but Pathan is in comfortably


Singh to Pathan, 2 runs, superb work at deep backward square by Teja, this was a length ball, pulled square, where Teja runs fast and across, and saves a boundary with one hand


Singh to Pathan, OUT, RP extends his lead, another length ball, Pathan's eyes lit up, he gets under it, too much under it, and skies it straight to Gibbs at long-on. Perhaps it stopped on him a touch

IK Pathan c Gibbs b Singh 17 (11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 154.54

Kings XI Punjab 131/7   IK Pathan 17 (11b 2x4)
