4

orkel to Dwayne Sith, FOUR, that's authoritative fro Sith. orkel wouldn't like it one bit. Tall, lanky bowler. Runs in and bangs it in short only to be pulled well in front of square. He'll alost take it as an insult

4

orkel to Brendon cCullu, FOUR, oh yeah! Short ball and cCullu slashes it over backward point. The speed of his hands is alost unfair to us ordinary beings. Belts it away so hard

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, Smith plants his back knee on the pitch, and then uses the angle to nail the sweep behind square. There is not much turn for now, that's not to say that is even trying

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, oh sloppy. It's Suryakumar Yadav at mid-off and he's let this one through. Driven powerfully along the turf, and it bursts through his hands

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, I still can't figure how that's beat the field. Baz is down the track in a flash, and slogs furiously despite not getting close to the pitch of the ball. He swats it off the inside half and it has enough legs to split the field

4

Russell to Dwyne Smith, FOUR, oh filth. Mind numbing filth. Low full toss down leg-side nd Smith just tickles it wy fine

6

to Dwayne Smith, SIX, the previous one didn't yield the desired result .. so Smith just decides to lift it over the man. Sliding in with the arm towards leg, Smith sinks on one knee and sweeps it deep into the backward square stands

W

to Dwayne Smith, out Bowled!! There's the breakthrough, and it's the in-form batsman too. must have seen him run down the track, held it back in length while still looping it up. Smith doesn't want to budge despite not reaching the pitch. Swings across the line and it sneaks under him to take leg-stump. Dwayne Smith b 27(18) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Raina, FOUR, classic Raina. So strong through the off-side. He's got a fair idea that the ball won't be turning and he drives it with the round the wicket angle through extra-cover. Just punched it on the up

4

orkel to Brendon cCullu, FOUR, it's a flat-batted spank through the covers. Short and wide outside off, cCullu seeed to be slightly late on the stroke but he has so uch uscle, this bloke. Powered it to the fence

6

orkel to Brendon cCullu, SIX, no, no, no. All this strategy fro orkel will do is that it will bring cCullu back into for. Short with a lot of width, and it's been desecrated over backward point

6

orkel to Brendon cCullu, SIX, holy hell, where's that gone! Soeone needs to launch a search party after it. orkel again coits the crie of bowling short and he's been bobed over deep id-wicket with a rocket launcher

W

to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by M Pandey!! Just when B-Mac was building some momentum, he holes out at long-on. Skipped out of the crease and seemed to have dragged the loft of the inside half as the bat twisted in his hands. Pandey positions himself a yard or so inside the ropes, cups it overhead and his foot slightly slides backward. But then he does well to stall his momentum and not encroach those cushions. Brendon McCullum c M Pandey b 29(24) [4s-3 6s-2]

4

Hogg to D Karthik, FOUR, oh you have to love these kind of players. Second all he faces, and he rings out the reverse sweep. It was the googly as well so it worked in his favour and simply paddled it ehind ackward point

4

Hogg to D Karthik, FOUR, and now Karthik has Hogg thinking. Tossed up around off, he stoops low and wallops the sweep wide of long-on

4

Hogg to D Karthik, FOUR, Karthik is racing at a strike rate of 300. Looped up full on the stumps, he powers it forcefully with a closed at wide of long-on once more

4

Yadav to D Karthik, FOR, Karthik is playing a little blinder here. Sch a cheeky little lad. His strokes are in fll alignment with his appearance. So street-smart! Back of a length jst otside off, Karthik opens his bat-face, ses all the pace and rns it fine of third man

6

Yadav to D Karthik, SIX, top-edge and six! GG ain't happy. DK dances down the pitch, Yadav plls his length back and fires it fast into the batsman. Karthik is throgh his shot (pll) - Top-edge sails over the fine leg fence

4

orkel to D Karthik, FOUR, deft! How good is DK with these strokes? Waits inside the crease like a wily fox and opens the bat face at the last oent to run it fine down to third an. Oh, orne! Can't do uch about it?

4

Russell to D Krthik, FOUR, short nd sking to be slpped - Krthik swivels nd pulls ferociously to the fine leg fence

D

Russell to D Krthik, 1 run, dropped by Robbie! Short, down leg, Krthik drgs the swipe nd despite well-timed dive from Uthpp (to his left), he couldn't cling on

W

Russell to Rin, out Cught by B Hogg!! How mny times hve we seen Rin getting out to short bll? Only he should know the count. This bouncer gets big on Rin s he looks to pull. Goes through with the shot nd top-edge lnds in the sfe hnds of Hogg t fine leg. He hdn't even moved n inch. Rin c B Hogg b Russell 14(18) [4s-1]

4

Russell to D Krthik, FOUR, this is n exmple of DK's pnche! He plys the bll ccording to its merit. Doesn't get intimidted by the sitution. Short nd spryed wide, Krthik stys still nd opens his bt fce to rmp it wide of third mn

4

to Finch, FOUR, and the runs keep coming! Wider of off from a short length, Finch kills the drive with a wild swing of the arms and off she goes through the covers

6

to Finch, SIX, that's dismissed! Looped up in the outside off zone and Finch extends his arms on a thumping lofted drive, all the way into the extra cover orbit

4

to Finch, FOUR, drifting down leg, Finch drops to one knee and laps it fine, raced away to the fine leg fence!

4

to Finch, FOUR, Finch is turning it on here! Sees plenty of width outside off and pounces on it with a blistering drive through cover. Stop that!

6

to Finch, SIX, Finch is in some hurry! Why isn't he opening? Nevertheless, he makes up for it. Full and sliding in towards leg-stump, Finch spanks it and sends it soaring into the cow corner stands

4

Hogg to D Karthik, FOUR, Russell can't cut it off and DK gets to his 12th T20 League fifty. A googly from Hoggy and Karthik was up for it. Went too far across, knelt down and elted the sweep ehind square leg. Russell came rushing in ut he lets it through. Just one strike away now

D

Hogg to D Karthik, no run, Catch dropped! Karthik steps out and goes foe the loft, was fired outside off and Roie fails to latch onto the outside edge

W

Hogg to D Karthik, out Stumped!! Not again! The wrong 'un which deceives DK again - eats his at swing this time Roie had it covered. DK isn't looking ack this time. D Karthik st Uthappa Hogg 51(29) [4s-8 6s-1]

W

to Jadeja, out Finch Run Out!! What has Jaddu done? Finch is livid. Please don't get in his way. He might kill you with the way he's swinging the bat. Is hitting the turf, pads in utter frustration. Jaddu nudged this towards mid-wicket and called for a single. Stopped half-way and is ball-watching. Finch responded and is just a few steps away from the striker's end. Pandey keeps his cool and runs with the ball to effect a simple run-out. Finch run out (M Pandey) 29(10) [4s-3 6s-2]

6

to Jadeja, SIX, finally! Jaddu decides to finish the game. Was waiting for this with eagle eyes. So, KOL have been humbled at their home ground. Beating them in Kolkata is like beating Rafael Nadal in the first round of a French Open. Quite impossible, but GUJ have managed to do so. Jaddu takes his side to the top of the points table with a mighty mow over mid-wicket. GUJ's owner is seen fist-pumping and the orange flags are flying high. Go, celebrate Jaddu and console Finchy!

4

Kulkarni to Uthappa, FOUR, this one is too full though. Swings away at a generous pace outsie off an is caresse through the covers. Goo strie across from Uthappa to cover for the swing

4

Kulkarni to Uthappa, FOUR, another lovely rive through extra-cover. Pitche right up outsie off, an Uthappa azzles again with a gorgeous flow of the bat

W

Kumar to Gambhir, out Bowled!! This is where I scratch my brains. With so many technological advancements, surely there must be a way to revent this from haening. An innocuous delivery down leg which is not even on course towards the leg-stum, then just gets stuck in the thigh ad, changes its ath and breaks the timber. Gambhir definitely feels short-changed as he swings his bat at the itch. Gambhir b Kumar 5(6)

W

Kumar to M andey, out Caught by D Karthik!! Look at that shae from raveen. Brilliant bowling. There's always a lace for swing in cricket and raveen is a fine examle. Kisses the track on a back of a length just outside off and then it swirls further away to catch a faint edge as andey tries to glide it down to third man. KOL have been jolted early at home, which doesn't haen very often. M andey c D Karthik b Kumar 0(2)

4

Kulkarni to Uthappa, FOUR, oh ear! Shivil Kaushik .. I on't even have wors. Such a lame effort. Clippe own straight to fine leg an it shoul have been a regulation pick-up but he lets it through an can't recover. You shoul see the look on Kulkarni's face

W

Kulkarni to Uthappa, out Caught by Karthik!! oesn't learn his lesson an pays the ultimate price. It's nowhere near full enough an with the ball swerving corners, efinitely not avisable to rive on the up. He goes for it anyway an nicks it behin. Uthappa c Karthik b Kulkarni 14(10) [4s-3]

W

Smith to Suryakumar Yadav, out Caught by Raina!! Holy crap, you've got to be kidding me. This is surely one of the contenders for catch of the season. But firstly, where did that bounce come from? Pounded on a short of length and just sprung off the surface. Suryakumar didn't expect this much height on the ball as he arched his back to run it down to third man. Also, it kept following him with the angle so he had nowhere to go. The ball catches some glove, and what follows is sheer genius. Raina flies to his left as the ball is over his head, then catches it with the wrong arm (right arm stretched while diving to the left). Phew! Jaffa. Suryakumar Yadav c Raina b Smith 4(12)

4

Smith to Y Pathan, FOUR, there's Pathan for you. Blasts a full ball over the covers. He doesn't care about the scenario

D

Kulkarni to Shakib, 1 run, glie in the air an it's roppe by a 44-year ol Tambe. Short ball outsie off, Shakib greets it with a nothing shot unless he was looking to clear the ropes. Tambe runs to his right, tries to latch onto it on the move but his momentum is too much to allow him to control the ball. What a reprieve for KOL. The loss of Shakib, now, coul have been isaster

4

Smith to Shakib, FOUR, flicked away off the pads to beat fine leg. A half-volley really and Shakib treats it with a subtle whip of the wrists

6

to Y Pathan, SIX, now he lands a wrong 'un in Pathan's half and finds himself pumped down the ground. Such a ferocious swing of the bat

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, err, he's half-volleying his way out of the attack. I would do that too, you know. Tosses it further up outside off, and is blasted to the fence at deep extra-cover

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, there's the class from Pathan! Opens the bat face ever so late and deflects this flatter one to the third man fence, short third man had to give up - The chase

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, short ball to Yusuf Pathan is a cardinal sin. He rocks back, picks his spot and mauls the pull

4

to Shakib, FOUR, 50-run stand. dropped Shakib on 4 and the latter is making him pay. Shortish outside off, Shakib leans back and cuts late to find the gap backwards of point. Classy stuff!

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, the spinners are making life easy for KOL. This is a streaky boundary but the home side won't mind that one bit. Quick, flat outside off, Pathan throws the kitchen sink and the inside edge nutmegs DK to the third man fence

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, short and quick outside off, Pathan is too strong in that area. Camps back comfortably and executes the late-cut to perfection, hit that brutally

6

Bravo to Shakib, SIX, you bowl slow, you bowl short, you bowl wide - It doesn't matter. Shakib has decided to bash this ball before the start of this over. Off-cutter with plenty of room on offer, Shakib jumps down the pitch and sends a smack-bang over extra cover

OT

Bravo to Y Pathan, 1 run, fifty for Yusuf Pathan! Short and drifting down leg, he swivels and pulls down to fine leg to claim the milestone. Hugs his partner and raises the bat towards dug out

4

Kulkarni to Y Pathan, FOUR, short an too straight, oesn't matter - Pathan is in some moo. Looking to ismiss everything off his sight. Pulls an a thick top-ege swirls over K an into the fence

6

Bravo to Shakib, SIX, full in the slot, Shakib kept his eyes on the ball and mows it powerfully over a leaping deep mid-wicket for a 78-metre six. Brings up the 100-run stand as well

6

Bravo to Shakib, SIX, and again! Half-volley just outside off, Shakib sees the ball dip and smokes it high and handsome over long-off. Whadday clean hit that!

4

Kumar to Shakib, FOUR, that's a reverse forehand sla! Nadal, Federer, Djokovic - Watching? The slow, slow, slow delivery which takes an age to reach Shakib. He shuffles and fetches the ball over his right shoulder to sla that in the face. DK had no chance. What a way to get to your fifty!

4

Kumar to Shakib, FOUR, another slower short one sans any venom. Shakib waits, waits and disatches it with a thunderous ull over short fine

6

Bravo to Shakib, SIX, that's GOLFED! Slower length ball begging to be hit. Shakib throws every ounce of his energy into the swat and sees the ball flying into the mid-wicket stands
