View dismissal JH Kallis c †de Villiers b Vettori 22 28 23 3 1 95.65
6.2 caught behind! Vettori pitched on a good length in line with the stumps but did not spin it away, the ball went on with the angle of the arm. Kallis moved back to cut from in front of the stumps and got a thick edge into AB's waiting gloves 60/1
View dismissal G Gambhir* c Patel b Khan 64 77 39 9 1 164.10
16.2 caught at short third man, off the reverse swat and off the back of the bat. Gambhir tried to use the uneven side of the bat to hit the ball past short third man but failed, the ball went straight to the fielder. He basically tried to reverse paddle but with the back of the bat 139/4
View dismissal MS Bisla st †de Villiers b Muralitharan 46 29 29 2 3 158.62
13.3 stumped! Bisla charged Murali again, this time he was beaten by the flight and beaten by the straighter one. AB fumbled the take a little but Bisla was so far down that he completed an easy stumping in the end. Bisla, however, has done his job. 125/2
View dismissal YK Pathan c Gayle b Vinay Kumar 1 3 3 0 0 33.33
14.1 caught at point! You rarely see Gayle in that position but he's taken at easy catch. Yusuf tried to blast a short of a length ball from outside off stump down the ground, he ended up slicing it at chest height to the catcher. That one bounced a bit more on Yusuf 126/3
View dismissal MK Tiwary c Agarwal b Khan 2 17 5 0 0 40.00
16.5 caught at deep square leg! The slower ball does Tiwary in, he was through his swat on the leg side too early and ended up hitting it in the air to Mayank Agarwal on the square leg boundary, Kolkata are falling apart at the finish 140/5
View dismissal RN ten Doeschate c Vettori b Muralitharan 3 5 4 0 0 75.00
17.2 caught at short fine leg! The slide continues. ten Doeschate tries to sweep but top-edges the top-spinner to Vettori, an easy catch. Will Kolkata even get 160 now? 143/6
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c Pujara b Vinay Kumar 4 8 4 0 0 100.00
18.3 Shakib's teed off, but he hasn't hit it very far. Pujara settles under the ball at long-off and takes the catch. Shakib wanted to hit that over extra cover but connected with the toe of his bat 151/7
View dismissal LR Shukla c Khan b Patel 5 10 8 0 0 62.50
19.3 Zaheer's taken a superbly judged catch! Shukla slogged at a short of length ball, top-edging it high on the leg side, I think Zaheer had to run from mid-on to his right and catch the ball around the wide mid-on region 154/8

View dismissal CA Pujara c Pathan b Kallis 6 9 9 0 1 66.66

Pujara tried to steer the ball towards third man and opened the face to do so, the ball angled into him and bounced a bit more, taking the edge to Yusuf. Pujara was moving forward to play the ball and wasn't balanced 7/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c Shukla b Kallis 2 17 8 0 0 25.00
3.3 this was on the cards, he was either going to blast off or get out, the latter has happened, Gayle tried to pull a short delivery over midwicket, but the top edge only settled safely into mid-on's hands, massive wicket, the length, the length has been the key, and Kallis had the pace to hurry Gayle from that length 8/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Tiwary b Balaji 6 20 14 1 0 42.85
5.5 Balaji has struck, anther massive wicket for KKR, and the celebration says it all, they are all over Balaji, Virat's instinct was to turn this length ball square on the leg side with the angle, he ended up closing the face too early, and the leading edge carried to point, they check for the no-ball but Balaji looks to be alright 20/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Balaji 10 19 10 1 0 100.00
7.2 what a delivery! even some one of the class of AB de Villiers has no answer to this beauty from Balaji, angled in on a good length, straightens appreciably and skids off the pitch to hurry on past the defensive push and strike off stump, AB was playing that one from the crease and had no chance of countering the movement 25/4
View dismissal SS Tiwary c Shukla b ten Doeschate 18 45 19 1 0 94.73
14.2 Tiwary has picked out the man in the deep again with an awkward pull, and this time he is not getting away with it, Shukla it is at deep midwicket who takes the catch, another one goes down 78/7
View dismissal MA Agarwal c Gambhir b Balaji 5 11 6 0 0 83.33
9.1 poor stroke from Agarwal, but Balaji is unstoppable tonight, Agarwal walks down the track but only ends up spooning a length ball to extra cover for a simple catch 33/5
View dismissal DL Vettori* b Balaji 20 13 12 3 1 166.66
11.5 Balaji has four, there is no getting away from him today, Vettori has been moving around in the crease all the time, misses as looks to swing fine down leg from outside off stump, and Balaji is on target with a slow length delivery, which bounces and crashes into the top of off stump 60/6
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c Shukla b Shakib Al Hasan 25 34 26 0 1 96.15
