Shadab Jakati402626.50123100
12.1 to G Gambhir, big strike, Gautam is gone, he gave Jakati the charge, but got an inside edge on to pad, the ball then contrived to roll onto the stumps. 100/2
14.4 to JH Kallis, KKR slip further, Kallis, of all batsmen, goes for the reverse-sweep and gets it straight to slip, Kallis is not happy with the umpire's decision, replays show the ball came off the forearm. 111/3

Ravichandran Ashwin402616.5052000
16.6 to YK Pathan, YK has picked out long on with precision, tossed up around off, he goes for the big stroke, but gets it too high, and it sails tamely straight to Bravo on the long on rope, the horror season continues for YK, KKR slide further, what a turnaround. 127/4
Suresh Raina201708.5031100
Ravindra Jadeja403919.7574200
17.2 to MK Tiwary, and another one, what is happening, the Kolkata Krumble, Tiwary looks to fetch a flighted delivery from just outside off and hit it over midwicket, it turns more than he had budgeted for, and Bravo has another straightforward take at long on. 128/5

10.4 to M Vijay, that spun back in and took out off stump, Eden Gardens comes to life, extremely poor stroke in the end from Vijay, he was on the back foot, and was looking to cut the flighted length ball, but it spun back in and confounded him completely. 97/2
Jacques Kallis302508.3342100
Rajat Bhatia403328.2561200
17.1 to F du Plessis, Bhatia strikes, du Plessis goes for six over long on, picks up the slow length ball from middle and leg, and lofts it cleanly, but gets too much height on it, Tiwary takes it some way in from the long on rope. 127/4
19.2 to MS Dhoni, with eight needed off five, Dhoni falls to Bhatia's legcutter, tries to heave it through midwicket, the length ball holds its line on middle and crashes into middle. 151/5
