Kolkata Knight Riders184/9(19.5 overs)

7.35 pm I've got to run and jump on the Huddle I'm afraid so that's it for me today. Thank you for all your emails. Narine for Man of the Match? Or Russell? I'd give it to Narine. The other game is about to begin in Raipur. Hope it's as exciting as this one was. Cheers.

Anureet to Narine, 1 leg bye

a leg bye to win it for KKR! Narine misses the flick and the ball goes to square leg off the pad. Narine sets off immediately, the fielder aims for the stumps at the bowler's end but he misses! KKR go top of the table, what a manic finish

Narine is the last man. He did it with the ball and now he needs to score one run off two balls.

Anureet to Chawla, OUT

caught down the leg side! That would have been wide had Chawla let it go but he tries to glance the short of a length ball and Saha does splendidly to move to his right to catch it. That was so wide outside leg, and he gloved it.

Anureet to Chawla, SIX runs

and that's why he did not run! Chawla hammers the full ball far over deep midwicket to tie the scores! He was on the front foot for the full ball and swung hard, superb strike under pressure

19.2
W
Anureet to Chawla, OUT

it's all happening at Eden Gardens! Anureet bowls it in the blockhole outside leg to counter Chawla's movement outside leg stump. He inside edges the ball on to the pad and the ball rolls towards the bowler. Hogg charges for the single but Chawla sends him back. Anureet rushes to the ball, picks up, turns around and hits the stumps with Hogg well short

Brad Hogg run out (Anureet Singh) 5 (11m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100

Anureet to Hogg, 1 run

Hogg makes room by moving outside leg and hits straight, the bowler gets a hand on the ball but can't save the single

Aditya Talesara: "In a match, where everyone were worried for a fifth bowler for KXIP, they have done quite well 22-3 in four."

Anureet has the tough job of bowling the last over.

Hendricks to Chawla, FOUR runs

Chawla's cracked it hard, over the infield at point, and the ball races to the boundary. Too short and too wide from Hendricks, a poor finish to the over and KKR are ahead in the game after a short setback

17.5

Hendricks to Chawla, FOUR runs

short ball outside off, third man is in the circle, and maybe Chawla knows it because he ramps the ball over the infield to the third man boundary

caught behind! Russell goes back to cut and gets a thick edge so that's a sharp catch by Saha to his right. He followed the ball superbly. Has Russell done enough to take KKR to the top of the table?
