Played at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (neutral venue)
17 May 2009 (20-over match)

Singh to Sohal, no run, on target right away, length delivery, on the stumps, and defended


Singh to Sohal, 1 wide, third wide of the innings, but this is an interesting one, wide outside off, and it died on Gilchrist


Singh to Sohal, no run, just back of a length, starts off, moves away, Sohal goes fishing, doesn't catch anything


Singh to Sohal, no run, back of a length again, just outside off, and Sohal plays without feet, can't get it past backward point


Singh to Sohal, no run, tries the same line, just outside off, just back of a length, Sohal moves across, and defends it back to the bowler


Singh to Sohal, 2 runs, the walk across the stumps works, this is a touch fuller, and he picks it from in front of off, to over midwicket, and gets two for that chip


Singh to Sohal, OUT, tries too much, too early, walks across again, looks to scoop this time over short fine, doesn't connect, it lobs limply towards the fielder, Rohit Sharma takes three steps back and takes a sitter

S Sohal c Sharma b Singh 9 (12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

Kings XI Punjab 12/1   RP Singh 1-0-3-1

Singh to Katich, 1 run, Katich walks across, and flicks this length delivery to fine leg


Singh to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, that's strange, maybe Yuvraj didn't pick it, back of a length, outside off, he looks to leave it, but the ball finds the bat and goes towards thirdman


Singh to Katich, FOUR, that's a dismissive pull, another short delivery, Katich goes back and across, and pulls in front of midwicket


Singh to Katich, no run, fuller this time, just outside off, and played towards mid-off


Singh to Katich, FOUR, Katich is opening up the leg side beautifully, though this was very short, Katich goes back and across, and there is the whole leg side to choose from, this time rolls his wrists and goes square


Singh to Katich, 1 run, short and wide and cut away towards third man

Kings XI Punjab 26/2   RP Singh 2-0-14-1

Singh to Sangakkara, 1 run, full and wide, and driven uppishly towards sweeper-cover


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 Sangakkara, 1 run, back of a length, angling in, cramps him for room, and only a single to long-on ensues


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


Singh to Sangakkara, OUT, that's a big strike, and RP gets the purple cap with that, length ball, Sanga hits it hard down the ground, but straight to Harris at wide long-on. Not quite worked out by RP, but he will take it

KC Sangakkara c Harris b Singh 56 (43b 4x4 1x6) SR: 130.23

Kings XI Punjab 122/6   RP Singh 3-0-20-2

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


Singh to Lee, 1 wide, another bouncer to Lee, surely that's the plan, but it's too high


Singh to Lee, no run, this one stays low, back of a length, angled across, Lee gives it his all, but plays all over it


Singh to Lee, 1 bye, action replay, stays low again, Lee misses on an almighty slash, but this time they steal a bye


Singh to Chawla, 1 run, makes room, hits over the off side field, and gets a single to sweeper-cover

Kings XI Punjab 134/7   RP Singh 4-0-26-3
