Commentary

Two low scorers today, they were bound to show up. Join us tomorrow for for another busy day at the IPL, until then this is Alagappan Muthu, sneaking away

Sandeep Sharma is Man of the Match "It's a big moment for me, enjoying a lot, Expressing myself. When I'm playing I'm very serious, outside the rope I'm very funny. With the new ball, I swing it really well and I want the new ball and I'm happy for the faith shown in me"

"Bowlers were outstanding. Probably left 20 or 30 short on a tough wickets but we knew we had a chance if we took early wickets," George Bailey "It's hard to weigh it, but we probably got it wrong. We left it too much to do for the tail enders. Needed me or Viru or Miller to stay there. It's good to see Sandeep develop, he's got great confidence in what he wants to do which makes my job easier"

"The bowlers did a fantastic job, we should have chased it down," says Gautam Gambhir, "it was chasable with the kind of dew on the ground. Morne is an aggressive bowler and so far he's been brilliant. Surya looks a very talented cricketer and he'll get many more opportunities and at a better number"

9.55 pm Kings XI have been accused of being light on the bowling front, but a slower pitch and an out of form KKR line-up proved just the tonic they needed. Sandeep Sharma and Mitchell Johnson managed some early inroads, Akshar Patel was both effective and miserly. KKR have a big problem with their batting, starting with their captain Gautam Gambhir and their finisher Yusuf Pathan and they might be forced to make some brave decisions soon

Johnson to Yadav, OUT, slower ball cleans up middle stump. It was full, Umesh was not interested in getting in line as he offers a terrible excuse of a shot. Rooted to the crease and soundly beaten as he played inside the line
