Kolkata Knight Riders v Bangalore Royal Challengers, Kolkata

1 Kolkata were in charge after Bangalore's talented youngsters, Manish Pandey and Virat Kohli, fell cheaply, followed by new recruit Eoin Morgan. Bangalore were 35 for 4 after 7.2 overs.

2 As they have done countless times for their national sides, Rahul Dravid and Jacques Kallis set about repairing the innings after a slew of cheap wickets. They raised 38 runs to lift Bangalore to 73 for 4 after 12 overs

3 In a three-over period, Tiwary and Hodge dismantled each of Bangalore's three senior bowlers - Kallis, Steyn and Kumble. That spell brought in 42 runs, and Kolkata had sprinted to 61 for 0 after six overs
