    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
