Indian Premier League, 53rd match: Kolkata Knight Riders v Rajasthan Royals at Kolkata, Apr 17, 2010
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 8 wickets (with 23 balls remaining)
17 April 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Shukla to Watson, OUT, big wicket, slower short one, Watson waits and waits before pulling, and it has a loopy sort of bounce, and dips as it reaches, and Watson misses it altogether

SR Watson b Shukla 44 (26b 7x4 1x6) SR: 169.23

Rajasthan Royals 59/1   NV Ojha 14* (19b 2x4)   LR Shukla 0.3-0-1-1

Unadkat to Ojha, OUT, Shukla is everywhere! Lovely catch at point, diving full length to his left after this was crashed off the back foot by Ojha. It was a poor delivery, short and wide, but Shukla threw himself at it, full length

NV Ojha c Shukla b Unadkat 18 (22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Rajasthan Royals 69/2   YK Pathan 6* (4b 1x4)   JD Unadkat 1.4-0-19-1

Unadkat to Pathan, OUT, As good as a catch as Ganguly has ever taken! And it is some take! Yusuf gets too much under this attempted six off a slower ball, and skies it towards deep midwicket, and Ganguly runs back from midwicket, keeps his eye on it, and then in the final instance sees it is falling away, and then dives to complete the stunner

YK Pathan c Ganguly b Unadkat 8 (9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Rajasthan Royals 74/3   AJ Finch 3* (5b)   JD Unadkat 2.2-0-20-2

Dinda to Voges, OUT, no mistake with this one, done in by a slower one! Is looking for a loft, but ends up skying it towards wide long-on, and Kartik completes a safe catch

AC Voges c Kartik b Dinda 8 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Rajasthan Royals 98/4   AJ Finch 19* (17b 1x6)   AB Dinda 2.3-0-14-1

Bond to Finch, OUT, he is early into the pull again, and he has dragged this one from wide outside off onto the stumps, off the bottom edge. It;s not a slower one either, 138ks, Kolkata have made a big comeback into this match

AJ Finch b Bond 21 (21b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Rajasthan Royals 101/5   AS Raut 1* (1b)   SE Bond 2.2-0-12-1

Unadkat to Raut, OUT, another superb catch. By Gayle this time. Raut is frustrated and he jumps out of the track, and is done in by yet another slower delivery. Gayle runs backwards from mid-off and takes a nice head-high catch

AS Raut c Gayle b Unadkat 2 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 103/6   P Dogra 1* (6b)   JD Unadkat 3.5-0-25-3

Kartik to Dogra, OUT, Rajasthan are falling apart here. Tries to reverse-hit, the ball pitches in the rough outside what would be the leg stump, turns away, beats him, and takes out the middle stump

P Dogra b Kartik 8 (12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Rajasthan Royals 115/7   FY Fazal 5* (5b)   M Kartik 3.4-0-29-1

Dinda to Fazal, 1 run, OUT, good work from Unadkat and McCullum. They risk a second to deep square leg, and Unadkat throws flat and slightly off the mark. McCullum comes forward to make up for the throw, collects it in front of his body, and reverse-flicks the bails off to find his short by inches

FY Fazal run out 13 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Rajasthan Royals 126/8   SK Warne 1* (3b)   AB Dinda 3.3-0-18-1

Dinda to Trivedi, OUT, Mother of all ironies. Sid Trivedi getting out to a slower one. Ends up skying it towards midwicket and Unadkat gets under it and completes the catch even as he takes a tumble

SK Trivedi c Unadkat b Dinda 4 (2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Rajasthan Royals 130/9   SK Warne 1* (3b)   AB Dinda 3.5-0-22-2
