13 April 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Ashwin to Gayle, OUT, and Ashwin strikes right back! Gayle was coming down the track this time, Ashwin held it back, and Gayle could not get to the pitch as it turned away. Dhoni does the rest! Got him with a beautiful bit of flight

CH Gayle st †Dhoni b Ashwin 7 (4b 0x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 17/1   SC Ganguly 10* (10b 2x4)   R Ashwin 1.2-0-9-1

Ashwin to McCullum, OUT, Ashwin is on fire! McCullum's not read him well this over, and was desperate to get him away. When in doubt, McCullum sweeps or scoops, it was the sweep this time, the top edge looked like it will fall behind short fine leg, but Muralitharan had other plans! Nice tumbling catch, Chepauk roars!

BB McCullum c Muralitharan b Ashwin 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 17/2   SC Ganguly 10* (10b 2x4)   R Ashwin 2-0-9-2

Bollinger to Ganguly, OUT, Chennai are all over Kolkata here! Bollinger had set this up the previous ball with the bouncer, this time he slips in the pacy full delivery aimed at Dada's pads. It strikes him flush, but outside leg stump. Umpire Hazare thinks it is out, and Chepauk does not mind, but that was a poor call.

SC Ganguly lbw b Bollinger 10 (12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Kolkata Knight Riders 17/3   MK Tiwary 0* (0b)   DE Bollinger 1.2-0-8-1

Ashwin to Hussey, 1 wide, OUT, Ashwin's got another one, what a spell this is! Looped on leg stump, turning down the leg, and Hussey was drawn out, could not make contact and over-balanced. Dhoni took the bails off before one could have said "Wide"!

DJ Hussey st †Dhoni b Ashwin 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 19/4   MK Tiwary 0* (1b)   R Ashwin 2-0-10-3

Raina to Tiwary, OUT, Murali Vijay has taken a really good catch! Tiwary got under this flighted delivery from Raina and sent it high into the Chennai night-sky, and when it came down, metres in front of the long on fence, Vijay was there, running back a long way and taking it well.

MK Tiwary c Vijay b Raina 27 (31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 87.09

Kolkata Knight Riders 92/5   AD Mathews 36* (34b 2x4 2x6)   SK Raina 0.4-0-3-1

Jakati to Saha, OUT, Gone! Saha played it off the face off the bat, he wanted to go very fine and it went too fine for his liking, into Dhoni's right leg. He regained quickly and broke the stumps with Saha desperately trying to get back in.

WP Saha st †Dhoni b Jakati 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 96/6   AD Mathews 39* (39b 2x4 2x6)   SB Jakati 3.5-0-21-1

Bollinger to Shukla, OUT, Gone! Short of a length outside off, Shukla went for a 360 degree pull, and would have been happy if it went anywhere, but not high. That's where the top edge went, Hayden was under it and took it easy at cover. Shukla has done his job though.

LR Shukla c Hayden b Bollinger 17 (10b 0x4 2x6) SR: 170.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 123/7   AD Mathews 43* (44b 2x4 2x6)   DE Bollinger 3.2-1-10-2

Muralitharan to Mathews, OUT, pyrrhic victory for Murali! Mathews has swept the carpet from under hit feet today, but this time he sweeps to his demise, top edge loops up and Hayden is again under a swirler. Good innings comes to an end.

AD Mathews c Hayden b Muralitharan 48 (48b 3x4 2x6) SR: 100.00

Kolkata Knight Riders 133/8   AB Agarkar 4* (3b 1x4)   M Muralitharan 3.3-0-42-1
