TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.75)135/7
Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Shreevats Goswami, 2.6 ov), 2-17 (Manish Pandey, 4.3 ov), 3-20 (Virat Kohli, 5.4 ov), 4-35 (Eoin Morgan, 7.2 ov), 5-73 (Rahul Dravid, 12.1 ov), 6-110 (Robin Uthappa, 17.3 ov), 7-112 (Roelof van der Merwe, 17.6 ov)
2.6 to SP Goswami, the short deliveries haven't troubled Goswami but have kept him scoreless. He has found it difficult to pull or cut. This time he charged down the track and received a bouncer and he could only top edge the attempted cut straight to third man. 15/1
4.3 to MK Pandey, Inside edge .. dragged on! Manish looked tentative throughout his brief stay - perhaps the pressure of playing in Eden Gardens - and is gone now. He tries to force a length delivery outside off .. he stays rooted to his crease, just lunges out and attempts to flat bat it. Fatal inside edge.. 17/2
12.1 to R Dravid, Another fatal inside edge. Angelo strikes again. It was a low dipping full toss well outside off, Dravid wanted to lash it to the cover boundary but gets a thick inside edge as he perhaps went too hard at the ball. He is fuming as he walks back.. 73/5
17.3 to RV Uthappa, walks down the track and goes for the lofted big hit but ends up nicking it behind the wicket. Angelooooo had pushed it wider to induce that edge. 110/6
17.6 to RE van der Merwe, Angelo is da Maan for KKR so far in this competition. He slips in a slower one around off stump and Van der Merwe slices the intended big hit to backward point where Hodge takes a good low tumbling catch. 112/7
5.4 to V Kohli, Murali Kartik, who bowled superbly in the previous editions of iPL, takes out Kohli. He got it to dip rapidly on Kohli, who had charged down the track, and the attempted lofted hit went towards deep midwicket. Lovely bit of bowling from Kartik.. 20/3
7.2 to EJG Morgan, Goes for the reverse sweep but Kartik had slowed up the pace and shortened the length .. Morgan was early through his shot and the ball bounded off his arm and fell on the stumps.. 35/4

Fall of wickets: 1-101 (Manoj Tiwary, 11.4 ov), 2-112 (Brad Hodge, 13.6 ov), 3-133 (Sourav Ganguly, 18.2 ov)
18.2 to SC Ganguly, banged in short outside off stump, Ganguly pulls it but straight to deep midwicket fielder ...Oh well .... 133/3
11.4 to MK Tiwary, Good catch by Van der Merwe. Tiwary had really struck it very hard back down the pitch .. Van der Merwe manages to hold on it .. it hit him on the wrist i think and rolled up and he clung on to it. Looks like he is in some pain now.. Entertaining breezy fifty from Tiwary.. 101/1
13.6 to BJ Hodge, Hodge holes out to long-on. He moved down the track but was beaten in flight and ended up slicing it ... Fine innings from him. 112/2
