Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Brendon McCullum, 1.1 ov), 2-12 (Chris Gayle, 3.4 ov), 3-16 (Sourav Ganguly, 5.2 ov), 4-34 (Aakash Chopra, 10.4 ov), 5-48 (Laxmi Shukla, 12.2 ov), 6-72 (Brad Hodge, 15.3 ov), 7-73 (Moises Henriques, 15.5 ov), 8-81 (Ajit Agarkar, 16.3 ov), 9-99 (Ishant Sharma, 19.2 ov), 10-101 (Ashok Dinda, 19.4 ov)
1.1 to BB McCullum, he's give him! McCullum's shaking his head, but he's disappointed with himself, short outside leg, tries to work it fine, ends up getting a tickle on the gloves through to the keeper. 1/1
3.4 to CH Gayle, gone, big wicket! Excellent comeback, realised his mistake, pushed it much fuller, landed on a length on middle and Gayle tried to clip that away over midwicket, there was some late movement that took the leading edge, Harmeet Singh ran in from long-off to pouch a well-judged catch. 12/2
19.2 to I Sharma, pushed through quick at 126 kmph on the off, Ishant made way to pull it wide of midwicket, missed it, came onto him a little too quickly, and the off stump was pegged back. 99/9
19.4 to AB Dinda, cleans him up with a yorker on leg and middle, he makes room but fails to dig it out and the stumps take a beating, RP finishes with a four-for. 101/10
5.2 to SC Ganguly, Harmeet strikes and Kolkata are in some trouble now! Full and wide, Ganguly's tempted, he makes room but way too much and reaches for it to play it in the direction of cover, gets a thick edge and it flies off straight to slip where Laxman snaps a sharp one. 16/3
10.4 to A Chopra, done in by the spin! Gave him the charge even before it was bowled, saw him come down and dragged it slightly short on the off and got it to spin away as he pushed at it, Gilchrist took it cleanly and clipped the bails to find him well short. 34/4
12.2 to LR Shukla, tempted him with a flighted one on the off stump, he danced down the track and had a massive swipe, it spun away to beat the bat and Gilchrist did the rest, spinners continue to thrive in the IPL. 48/5
15.3 to BJ Hodge, Not the best of deliveries but it earns him a wicket thanks to some sharp fielding by Gibbs, it's short and wide and is cut powerfully but Gibbs is in perfect position at point, just bends a little low and takes it in front of his face, the crowd roars. 72/6
15.5 to MC Henriques, one more, and its Rohit who snaps a sharp one this time, betters Gibbs, full and wide and he's into the drive, strikes it firmly but Rohit Sharma at cover is quick to bend low and snap it inches from the ground, Kolkata sink further. 73/7

TOTAL13.1 Ov (RR: 7.89)104/2
Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Adam Gilchrist, 2.5 ov), 2-35 (VVS Laxman, 4.5 ov)
2.5 to AC Gilchrist, the drop catch doesn't prove too costly, goes for a mighty pull over midwicket, doesn't pick the length right, it's just a fraction short, mistimes it and it takes forever to come down but Henriques at square leg judges it to perfection taking a couple of steps back and taking it on his chest. 24/1
