    3.1 The slower ball. It is short outside off, but he is early into the cut, and the edge is dying when Bisla dives in front to send him back 27/1

    19.6 a very good finish by Lee. This is driven back hard, Lee fields it in his follow-through, and proceeds to run out Trego, who has backed up too far 166/6
    12.1 another well timed shot from van der Merwe but he finds midwicket. Length ball, angling in, done in by the lack of pace so he ends up dragging it a touch. Straight to midwicket 99/2
    15.4 Hildreth is gone trying the big shot. Slogs across the line of this, seems like the slower one, ends up slicing it to extra cover 125/3
    18.4 too clever for his own good. Trego moves too far across to try the scoop, Unadkat bowls the loopy slower one. This would have been a wide had he not moved so far across. What's more? He is no position to respond to Compton's call for a bye. Compton is left stranded after a good hand 158/4
    19.3 Thanks for putting that smile back on Juhi's face. Snell pulls but this is a touch too quick for him. The top edge settles with mid-on 164/5

    1.1 and there is a wicket off the first ball Kartik bowls against Kolkata. And it's the dangerous-looking Bisla. Short of a length, pushed to cover-point, Bisla goes for one, Kallis doesn't. They shake hands at the striker's end. Kallis shouts "wait" right away, so Bisla has run himself out 8/1
    1.5 Kartik has burned a hole in the Kolkata top order. Hit straight to mid-on. The bowling is not half bad here. Sees kallis step out of the crease, bowls shortish, and into the pads. Kallis is handcuffed, and all he manages is a loft to mid-on 10/2
    7.6 Finally. Finally Goswami succeeds in his attempts at getting out. Tries to slog-sweep a full delivery, gets a front edge that is skied to long-on. No drops this time 48/3

    9.1 I said the guy bowls sliders more than legbreaks. KKR, though, don't seem to have watched as much of Waller as I have. Earlier Goswami top-edged one that went straight on. This time Tiwary looks to late-cut one, plays for the turn, the ball goes straight on, hits the inside edge, into the stumps 57/4
    12.6 Yusuf Pathan has drilled another delivery straight to long-on. This time, in the air. Somerset are ecstatic, Yusuf despondent. He gets a touch too close to the pitch of the ball, and doesn't get the necessary elevation 97/5
    19.4 RVD Merwe says, NIMBY. RTD comes down the ground, he spears in a yorker to take the middle stumps out. RTD goes back with a smile on his face. To those who used RTD so low in the order, remember class will out 153/8
    15.3 van der Merwe, I tell you. He is a dynamo. Not always pretty but always capable of something extraordinary. Shakib has played this really well. With the angle he plays a pick-up pull, this is well to the right of deep square, but van der Merwe flies to his right to take it with both hands 120/6
    19.1 What has Bhatia done here? Low full toss, and he looks to chip this over extra cover. The idea is right, the execution isn't. A low catch for extra cover. The batsmen haven't crossed. new batsman on stirke 150/7
