0.4 he's gone! Uthappa's incredible run has come to a soft end. It's angled wide outside off, not as full as that first-ball four, and Uthappa's bat turns in his hands as he tries to drive, and ends up slicing it to point, where Akshar gets on his toes to grab it above his head 6/1
    6.1 and he's struck first ball! Gambhir comes down the track and heaves mightily at the ball without quite getting to the pitch of the ball. It goes high in the air and Miller, running to his left from long-on, takes it well inside the boundary 59/2
    16.6 oh no! Pandey's been hitting against the turn with a lot of success, but doesn't get hold of it this time. It's sliced up high over cover, and Bailey takes a simple catch. Super innings, and he raises his bat to the crowd as he walks off 179/6
    13.3 he's gone! Yusuf goes big again, and gets a lot of elevation but not quite enough distance, and Maxwell takes a simple catch right on the edge of the rope at long-on 130/3
    15.3 he's done it again, has he? Bailey turned the second Qualifier around with his run-out of Raina, and he's run Shakib out here, with another direct hit. Shakib mishit it towards cover, and Bailey runs to the ball in a flash, turns, and sends in a pinpoint throw that catches Shakib well short at the bowler's end as he looked to take a tight single 156/4
    16.3 Karanveer has his third! that's full and very wide again. Tendo tries to do a Pandey, looks to go over long-on, but he doesn't get the distance, and hits it straighter than he intended, and Miller is under it to take the catch well inside the boundary 168/5
    18.2 that's full, angled towards off stump, and Surya looks to go leg side. Doesn't get hold of it at all, and Manan takes a simple catch at deep midwicket. Oh yes, it was the slower ball with the off-cutter action. May have deviated away from Surya after pitching 187/7

Match Notes

best of the worst


Karanveer Singh's figures are the most expensive for a bowler who has taken 4 wickets in a T20 match.

The smallest margins


No. of runs that Wriddhiman Saha scored off 50 balls. Manish Pandey scored only 94 off 50. Who will be the happier man?

familiar territory


No. of times Knight Riders have scored 50+ runs in the last five overs of an innings while chasing in the IPL - they need 49 today

Prime target


No. of runs Parvinder Awana has conceded in seven overs in his last two games

Rising to the occasion


No. of overs in which Manish Pandey got to fifty - he has never managed this at an earlier stage of the innings in all T20 cricket.

Slam bang?


No. of times in this season that teams have scored 60+ runs in the Powerplay without a single six - Knight Rideres got 59 today.

Busy boys


No. of dot balls in the Powerplay for Knight Riders - the lowest in the season. The next best is nine by Kings XI when they visited Hyderabad

Weak link?


Gautam Gambhir's batting average in this season - it has only been worse in 2009 (22.0)

It's outta here


Number of IPL seasons in which 700+ sixes have been scored - the 2012 and 2014 seasons

Big man gone


No. of runs scored by Robin Uthappa in IPL 2014 - the highest score by an Indian in an IPL season.

Stepping out from shadows


Wriddhiman Saha's score is the highest score by a batsman in any T20 tournament final.

Topping the charts


The highest score for any team against Knight Riders in this IPL. Also, the second-highest score by any team in an IPL final

Saha joins big boys


No of batsmen who have hit Narine for three or more sixes across IPL seasons - Saha(3) and Raina (4).
