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)

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   SM Katich 0* (0b)   RP Singh 1-0-3-1

Symonds to Katich, OUT, remember what Momma said? Don't run off a misfield. Katich plays it straight towards Gibbs at cover, wait is the call although he has taken a few steps down, Gibbs fumbles, Katich comes through, Pomersbach is late to start, and Gibbs's throw is accurate, bye bye Luke

LA Pomersbach run out 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kings XI Punjab 15/2   SM Katich 1* (3b)   A Symonds 0.5-0-3-0

Symonds to Katich, OUT, and he's gone, the ides is right, execution is not, he goes across again, gets on a knee, and looks to loft a length ball over mid-on. But this is not connected properly, and Ojha has to take just four steps back to take the catch

SM Katich c Ojha b Symonds 11 (10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Kings XI Punjab 26/3   Yuvraj Singh 1* (2b)   A Symonds 1.2-0-3-1

Venugopal Rao to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Venu has got Yuvraj, with a faster, flatter delivery. This was bowled at 90ks, pitched just back of a length, just outside off, and hurried Yuvraj who was late in coming down on it. The middle stump is disturbed, Venu is elated

Yuvraj Singh b Venugopal Rao 20 (18b 2x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

Kings XI Punjab 52/4   KC Sangakkara 7* (11b)   Y Venugopal Rao 0.5-0-3-1

Suman to Mota, OUT, and gets a wicket first ball, thrown up outside off, and Mota goes for a slog sweep, gets a top edge towards cow corner - long-n is wide, Harris completes an easy catch. Another bowling change that has worked

WA Mota c Harris b Suman 12 (19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 63.15

Kings XI Punjab 105/5   KC Sangakkara 47* (37b 3x4 1x6)   TL Suman 3.1-0-12-1

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   IK Pathan 8* (5b 1x4)   RP Singh 3-0-20-2

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   B Lee 0* (3b)   RP Singh 3.3-0-24-3
