1.1

Singh to McCullum, OUT, plumb! Man do we have a twist here? The ball lands close to the cracks on the surface just short of a good length and shoots through much lower than McCullum expects it to, he swings and misses and gets caught on the thigh in front of middle stump, his legs were bent at the point of contact

BB McCullum lbw b Singh 9 (4b 2x4 0x6) SR: 225.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 9/2   BJ Hodge 0* (0b)   A Singh 0.1-0-0-1

4.6

MM Patel to Yashpal Singh, OUT, Yashpal's misely ends and Rajasthan are really making a game of this! Munaf bangs it in short outside off and an under pressure Yashpal can't resist the upper cut, the ball dips in front of Quiney but he times his dive well and pulls it off inches from the turf, the extra ball has worked to Rajasthan's favour

Yashpal Singh c Quiney b MM Patel 6 (20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 21/3   BJ Hodge 5* (4b 1x4)   MM Patel 3-0-13-2

7.1

Botha to Hodge, OUT, brilliant stuff by Ojha! Hodge drops the ball in front of silly point and takes off but the ball spins backwards to the keeper, Ojha flicks it back at the stumps and Hodge's bat was over the line but in the air, the third umpire takes a look

BJ Hodge st †Ojha b Botha 6 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 30/4   DJ Hussey 8* (9b 2x4)   J Botha 0.1-0-0-1

9.1

Botha to Hussey, OUT, The KKR choke continues! Botha drops it short and gets some extra bounce, Hussey bends his knee for a front foot pull and the ball lands down Neeraj Patel's throat at deep midwicket

DJ Hussey c NK Patel b Botha 9 (13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Kolkata Knight Riders 37/5   LR Shukla 6* (8b 1x4)   J Botha 1.1-0-5-2

11.3

Botha to Shukla, OUT, what on earth is happening today? Shukla tucks it in front of midwicket and there never really should have been a run there, Shaikh charges halfway down, turns back but the throw is fired to Botha who breaks the stumps, Shaikh's quite upset with his partner as he walks back. In fact Shukla didn't even want the single

SS Shaikh run out 6 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Kolkata Knight Riders 45/6   LR Shukla 8* (15b 1x4)   J Botha 2.3-0-7-2
