Russell to Kohli, FOUR, my word! Is he in some form or wht! Russell tries to surprise him with short bll first up nd he hs been pulled wy to the deep bckwrd squre leg fence. Tht sped off the willow

4

orkel to Gayle, FOUR, it's as if Gayle only has to connect slightly to clear the infield. Only soe contact, but it will do. Full ball around off, Gayle ais a onstrous loft, the bat turns in his hands and he skews it over wide id-on and into the fence

4

orkel to Gayle, FOUR, orkel is forced into yanking his length back, and Gayle pounces all over it. Transferred his weight back and pulled it well in front of square. Rocketed to the fence

4

Russell to Kohli, FOUR, oh no, you don't do tht to Kohli. Not when he is plying like lord. Full bll on the pds nd he flicks it through mid-wicket nonchlntly

6

Russell to Gyle, SIX, flt-btted mow down the ground, nd Russell must be sweting. The only thing which he did wrong ws tht he provided enough width on offer for the big mn to swing his rms, nd boy .. didn't he do tht!

6

Russell to Gyle, SIX, Gyle is here! couple of missiles from his bt to finish productive over. Short bll in line with the stumps, Gyle bcks wy nd pulls it hrd into the deep mid-wicket stnds. Russell ws down on the floor in his followthrough, lmost to symbolize knockout blow. BLR off to flier..

4

orkel to Gayle, FOUR, save yourselves. Save yourselves you KOL bowler, the boss is here. Short off-cutter outside off, Gayle arches his back to ake soe roo and flays it over backward point. Just one bounce and into the ropes

6

orkel to Kohli, SIX, this is open-fire fro both ends. Where do KOL go? Kohli jups out of the track, converts it into a full enough ball and swings it inside out over extra-cover. Wow

4

to Gayle, FOUR, he's seen two balls and now unleashes. Grounds his back knee, gets a big stride forward and sweeps it over square leg

4

to Gayle, FOUR, and now through the off-side. Too full from in trying to get it away from Gayle's reach. Gayle drives the overpitched delivery through the covers

6

to Gayle, SIX, can only shake his head. It's mayhem! Gayle sees a hint of flight and that's enough for him to open his shoulders. Don't think he got this one at all, out of the sweet spot I mean, in fact he skied it off the toe-end to have long-on interested. But in the end he is rendered irrelevant. As irrelevant as the toothpick they use to hold my burger

6

to Gayle, SIX, this is ridiculous. It's cold-blooded ruthlessness. fools Gayle by darting it short as he saw him come down, but Gayle doesn't bother. He hops back and flat-bats the extra-cover drive over wide long-off

W

to Gayle, out Lbw!! Huge appeal, and the umpire nods before putting his finger up. has struck the jackpot, and Gayle falls - one short of a fifty. It's the wrong 'un which is darted slightly short on middle, leaves Gayle cramped as it snakes back and raps the pad. He is so far back in the crease that height is not an issue. In fact, there is no issue here. It's plumb. KOL can breathe... Gayle lbw b 49(31) [4s-5 6s-4]

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, AB into the act. Only slightly short, but there's enough width, and he slashes it away past backward point

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, it's like BLR have decided that there's just one gear. Slower ball on a fuller length around off, and AB has slapped it straight back down the ground. Beats long-off comfortably

4

to Kohli, FOUR, he's hammered this through the point region. Shortish outside off, Kohli goes back and across and kills it square of the wicket

D

to Kohli, 1 run, what have you done Gambhir? A drop at backward point. The width lures Kohli into a cut shot, he obliges but fails to keep it down. Gambhir shuffles to his lelft, tries to take it with his fingers upwards, panics, switches the fingers around and drops it. How much will that cost? Ho ho

6

to de Villiers, SIX, that's been kissed away! Make room for the drifts and lifts it inside-out over covers. The fielder in the deep might have been lured into interest but alas

6

to Kohli, SIX, thundering! Skips out this time and plants a smoothie loft over long-on. That flew off the bat. Lovely bat swing and lovely followthrough of the bat to pat Kohli's own back

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, sigh! Yawn. Kohli has another fifty! Gets an overpitched delivery and puts in a lot of bottom hand on this drive to the deep cover fielder

6

to de Villiers, SIX, and de Villiers celebrates it for him. The fifty, I mean. Shuffles forward and across his off, fetches this with a sweep and channels it over backward square leg

6

to de Villiers, SIX, oh my! This was drifting down leg, de Villiers is onto it in a blink of an eye. Goes with the drift, goes with the bat swing and swats it over deep square leg

4

to Kohli, FOUR, there's some panache. Greets it with a reverse sweep and places it well wide of backward point to get away

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, that's so, so harsh. Loops this brilliantly wide, de Villiers cuts if off the keeper's glove but is not in control. Off the bottom-edge and it runs away to the third man fence

4

to Kohli, FOUR, he's just too much for . To put it bluntly. Had the room already, walks across to take on this off-cutter bowled on a length from round the wicket and bottom-hands the whip wide of long-on

OT

to de Villiers, 2 runs, gets to his fifty now. If I would get a penny for every stunning partnership between Kohli and AB, I would own the Casterly Rock! The front leg was out to make room for the swing and the ball is clubbed to deep mid-wicket. The fielder was squarer and runs across well to cut it off

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, and now he's been nutmegged. Don't ask me if this was intentional, might well be. Had his legs wide -with his right leg planted well down leg - and tries to squeeze it out with a clip. Between the legs and and the angle took Uthappa out of the equation. 11 off the last 2 overs needed

6

Russell to Kohli, SIX, tht bottom hnd! Oh, tht bottom hnd! Took the bll on journey tht clocked over 90 meters. Gets it on floggble length nd swings it over deep mid-wicket

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, BLR are prospering in this precarious situation. Needed a win tonight and they have it. And a win that put Eden Gardens on tranquilizers. Kohli said that he enjoys such situations and gosh, didn't he tonight. Gayle blasted away at the top - miraculously persisted with for the day - and then it was tough to get past AB de V(irat)illiers. Coming to the ball: drifts down leg, de Villiers winds up on his back knee and shames it with a paddle-sweep through fine leg

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, drilled through the covers. That's gone to the boundary quicker than you can say "blimey". Again, it's not quite a half-volley. But the bounce in this surface is so trustworthy that you can hit through the line. Driven gorgeously

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, clipped away wide of Jordan at mid-on and these outfields are so lightning quick that you can't allow it to pass through. Jordan still doesn't give up. He races after it and dives headfirst but to no avail

W

Abdulla to Uthappa, out Caught&Bowled!! What your coaches always tell you, never play aganst the turn. But Uthappa thnks that he has some leeway consderng the ball s stll new. But he should know hs home condtons better than ths. There's always turn here. He pops up a leadng edge to the left of Abdulla who stcks out a left arm and the ball gets lodged n t. Uthappa c and b Abdulla 2(4)

4

Abdulla to M Pandey, FOUR, and frst ball, Pandey goes down on one knee and slog-sweeps t to the wde long-on fence. Outrageous these young kds. No fear whatsoever

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, short and at 's pace, it's too easy for someone like Gambhir. Doesn't rise more than chest high, Gambhir stands tall and pulls it along the ground through square leg

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, one step, two steps and bam over mid-wicket. Got it perfectly in the slot and clubbed it hard. This is going to be fun

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, hoicks once more and despite mistiming it off the inside half of the bat, look at how quickly its gone to the fence. The trick is to just split the infield. Races away to the mid-wicket boundary

4

Abdulla to Gambhr, FOUR, after seeng how ths over has panned out, Gambhr has an nklng of what's comng. He shuffles towards off, gets nsde the lne of a dart and paddles t fne past short fne leg

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, it's a good short ball from , I wouldn't begrudge his effort there but Gambhir has rolled his wrists beautifully on the pull. He kept his eyes on the ball till as late as possible and transferred his weight back seamlessly to crunch it in front of square. A desperate dive from Chahal isn't good enough

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, oh how expertly has he played this! Pandey stepped to leg and seemed to have done a great job of cramping him up with a back of a length off-cutter, but then he unfurls his wrists and maneouvers the ball past backward point. Steered it absolutely perfectly

6

to M Pandey, SIX, "catch it" is the call from Rahul. What is he seeing? Pandey has muscled the slog-sweep well into the deep mid-wicket stands. He had lots of room as the ball lands on a length and he can get under it. Hammers it away

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, this is too full. Lands very close to Gambhir's crease allowing him to get under it and loft it inside out to beat long-off

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, and now he uses the depth of the crease. Not for no reason is Gambhir called a brilliant player of spin. Creates his own length and slices the cut past backward point

OT

to Gambhir, 1 run, it's all cutters from . And mostly on a back of a length. Gambhir dabs it behind backward point and brings up fifty. He looks absolutely pumped. First punches the bat and then punches the air with an intense look

W

Abdulla to Gambhr, out Gambhr Run Out!! Gautam Gambhr s lvd but Kohl always wll have more words. And more expressons. A trpe wde ball ths was, Gambhr cut t straght to backward pont and ntended a run. Pandey reacts overenthusastcally, then Gambhr s forced to follow and there's a md-ptch stutter. The two batsmen cross each other wth heavy feet and Gambhr's gone as a result. Dart of a throw at the bowler's end and that was the end. Gambhr run out (Watson/ Abdulla) 51(34) [4s-7]

6

to M Pandey, SIX, oh my! That's been manhandled. Almost premeditates the length which is short, had the room made but the bumper does not deter him. Swivels on the front foot and murders the pull over deep mid-wicket. Audacious to say the least

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, that's sublime timing. Wow. He was out of the crease, sees a shortish length and almost oozes out an open-batted punch wide of a vacant point

OT

to M Pandey, 1 run, and he gets to a fifty. Claps. Very well played. Very full on the pads and he clips it to mid-wicket to get to the landmark

W

to M Pandey, out Caught by de Villiers!! That ball summed up T20. Pandey backs away early to give away the cards and is followed by a full ball on his toes. The intention was to make room for a drive through off-side. Now that the room isn't there, he makeshifts with a whip and doctors the ball uppishly intending to clear long-on..but the lack of room meant that he could power it only as far as de Villiers in the deep. M Pandey c de Villiers b 50(35) [4s-5 6s-2]

4

to Y Pathan, leg byes, FOUR, cutter splayed down leg, misses the tickle and is frisked off the pads to the fine leg fence. An appeal for an LBW that would have shamed rule books and the umpire is not digressed with that. A fail of an appeal

W

to Y Pathan, out Stumped!! This was the craziest of dismissals you will witness. Not the shot, but the sheer reaction to the lack of it. tosses one up on a shortish length which tempts Pathan into a slog. He was waiting outside the crease for that, misses as the ball turns and Rahul takes the bails off in a jiffy. And then Pathan simply walked. Knew that he had dragged his back leg out and the replays showed that his bent back foot was inches outside. Is Yusuf the three-eyed raven or what? Y Pathan st Rahul b 6(12)

4

to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, shortish legbreak turning away, Yadav reaches out with the turn and slots this cut wide of backward point

D

to Suryakumar Yadav, no run, now was there an edge? More like glove. Looks to cut this legbreak off the keeper's glove, but waits a touch too long to play it. The ball kisses the gloves and the keeper fails to hold on to it. Too tough a chance that for the keeper

W

to Suryakumar Yadav, out Caught by I Abdulla!! And another wicket! And this is a very good adjustment from . Sees the shimmy and immediately pulls the length back to arrest it. Suryakumar Yadav goes ahead with the punch, arches back to power it over extra cover but couldn't. Gets more height than distance, and Abdulla runs back from mid-off in an angle and pouches it. Suryakumar Yadav c I Abdulla b 5(5) [4s-1]

6

to A Russell, SIX, holy me! He just powers it away. No back foot weight transfer drama. Just spots the length short, rises in sync with the bounce and blasts the pull off the front foot over deep mid-wicket. *Why fear when Caribbean power is here* moment

4

to Shakib, FOUR, that's been doctored away. Not quite in control but in T20s, it'll do. Everything does. Shuffles a touch, waits for the cutter and drives to cleave the arc between backward point and cover-point. Off the outside half as Shakib couldn't quite open the face completely

4

to A Russell, FOUR, this is the legbreak turning away...going wide... Russell gets on his knee and toe-ends the cut through cover. That shouldn't have seen the fences but when you power it like that - almost like a whip - nobody can stop the ball

6

to Shakib, SIX, BOOM! That's really big! Gets a ball on a length to get nicely under it, sinks to one knee and slog-sweeps the bejeezus out of it. Over deep mid-wicket by a distance

6

to A Russell, SIX, oh, those wrists! Shuffles across and fires it down leg but that doesn't hold back Russell. Winds up and whips it over fine leg. As carnivorous as a flick can get

D

to Shakib, 1 run, Eden Gardens can do that to you. Aravind has dropped it at third man and the crowd noise goes up two notches. How many gears do Bengalis have? Phew. Sees a full ball drifting wide, reaches out with a crouch and throws his bat at it. Off the toe-end, not enough power, the fielder is waiting and he lets that pot out...looked more out of panic than anything else. He was nicely behind the projectile

6

to A Russell, SIX, power. Brutal. Murdered. Gets a fullish delivery, launches his arms and brutes the ball over long-off. The bat swing measured in tonns of wattage there. And the elbow straightening sound? Let's leave it

4

to A Russell, FOUR, switches to round the wicket again to cut the width and ironically gives it. Cloaks it in a full toss to make matters worse and Russell slaps it over backward point. All power
