Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Murali Vijay, 0.6 ov), 2-80 (Suresh Raina, 10.3 ov), 3-129 (MS Dhoni, 17.2 ov), 4-138 (Srikkanth Anirudha, 19.2 ov)
0.6 to M Vijay, four and out. Abdulla has sent Vijay back with some nifty left-arm spin and we have the first wicket of the IPL. He again jumped out of the crease, Abdulla saw him and held it back on middle and got it to grip. Vijay wasn't to the pitch and still went through with an ill-advised on-drive. Straight to mid on.. 5/1
10.3 to SK Raina, stop the press, Kolkata have held a catch. They can't believe it. The crowd can't believe it. Raina is gone. Tossed up wide outside off, Raina looks to slog-shovel it across over midwicket and holes out to Manoj Tiwary in the deep.. 80/2
17.2 to MS Dhoni, Kallis has removed Dhoni. It is the slow bouncer. Sri Lanka, if they are watching, will be wondering why they did not try it the other night. Kallis rolls his fingers over it and the offcutter comes on much after Dhoni sets up a big backswing and looks for the whacked pull. He gets a feeble top edge and it loops up for an easy take to Bisla.. 129/3
19.2 to S Anirudha, I've never seen someone appeal so hard for a bowled dismissal. That's a very useful yorker from Kallis, it was angling into the toes as Anirudha looked to whip to the leg side, but could not get the bat down in time. Hits the pad and then disturbs the furniture. Would have been lbw in any case.. 138/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.55)151/7
Fall of wickets: 1-64 (Manvinder Bisla, 8.5 ov), 2-93 (Yusuf Pathan, 12.5 ov), 3-112 (Jacques Kallis, 15.2 ov), 4-119 (Eoin Morgan, 16.3 ov), 5-120 (Gautam Gambhir, 16.5 ov), 6-145 (Manoj Tiwary, 18.6 ov), 7-147 (Laxmi Shukla, 19.2 ov)
19.2 to LR Shukla, this still ain't over. They need seven. Shukla plays a shot that nearly gets them four of those. He backs away to a length ball outside off and looks for an upper cut, but it wasn't short or fast enough to be sent all the way. Worse, there was third man waiting, a couple of metres inside the circle. Curtains for Shukla.. 147/7
15.2 to JH Kallis, as contrived a wicket as they come. It is an attempted carom ball, but Ashwin overcooks it and sends down a full toss on middle and leg. Kallis tries mto be cute, looks to paddle sweep that and plays it straight to Badri at short fine leg. That's how you give catching practice for short fine leg fielders.. 112/3
18.6 to MK Tiwary, ah well, this game is not done turning. Dhoni gets another stumping. Randiv holds his nerve for the last couple of balls and gets Tiwary with an armer that broke past the outside edge after enticing him out of the crease. Tiwary looked to close the face as he drove, it bounced extra but Dhoni ad no problems collecting and breaking the stumps.. 145/6
8.5 to MS Bisla, Dhoni effects the stumping this time. Jakati has ended Bisla's adventurism at the top. Once again Bisla wanders out of the crease in search of an inside out drive, but he wasn't to the pitch and then it turned big on him. He missed and Dhoni did the rest.. 64/1
16.3 to EJG Morgan, Raina's done it again. He just needs to wear a yellow jersey and roll his arm over, and he promptly gets a wicket. Top-class bowling, he sees Morgan advancing, holds the length back, increase the pace and gets it to dip, grip and go away. Morgan resembles a man searching for change in a bus as he's stranded midpitch. Dhoni collects and breaks the stumps.. 119/4
