1 Partnership between Angelo Mathews and Owais Shah: From 31 for 4, they added 130 runs in less than 15 overs to give Kolkata Knight Riders a target to bowl at.

2 Adam Gilchrist goes berserk: His 35-ball 54 took Deccan Chargers to an explosive start, and it all seemed a formality after they had reached 99 for 1 in 11 overs.

3 Gichrist wicket follows a choke: A brain freeze happened after Gilchrist fell to the first ball of the 12th over. Loose shots claimed regular wickets, and only 51 runs came in the last nine overs - as opposed to Kolkata's 58 in last four.
