The three mistakes
Kolkata Knight Riders put down M Vijay as many as three times during his innings of 28. A jumping Gautam Gambhir could not hold on to an airy drive at short extra cover off Andre Russell. Sunil Narine would suffer twice next. Brad Hogg messed up at square leg and then Umesh Yadav grassed the simplest of the three chances at short fine leg.
The Narine DIY method
Three balls after Umesh had denied him, Narine took his unreliable fielders out of the equation to finally get his man. Vijay had been relying on the sweep but went too far across this time in trying to sweep an offbreak. The ball bounced and spun past the batsman to hit leg stump.
The first non-Narine strike
It took 99 balls for someone other than Narine to also be involved in a dismissal. Glenn Maxwell heaved one high over midwicket, and Johan Botha came in from the boundary to take it safely. It was an occasion for Knight Riders given how many chances they had shelled, and Botha celebrated by kicking the ball away. The bowler was… Narine.
