Indian Premier League - 49th match

Deccan Chargers v Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab won by 1 run

1.1

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

1.2

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

1.2

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

1.3

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

1.4

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

1.5

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

1.6

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

3.1

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

3.2

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

3.3

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

3.4

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

3.5

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

3.6

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

17.1

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

17.2

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

17.3

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

17.4

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

17.5

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

17.6

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

19.1

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

19.2

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

19.3

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

19.4

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

19.4

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

19.5

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

19.6

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
