All|Overs 1-50
4

Kumar to Chris Lynn, FOUR, just goes through with a wild slog across the line, no timing whatsoever. All ower. To Lynn's delight, it went in the ga behind the square leg umire. First boundary for KOL

6

Kulkarni to Chris Lynn, SIX, that's the Chris Lynn we saw in BBL. Full-blooe swing, clears his front leg, picks the length early an goes bang over mi-wicket

4

Kulkarni to Gambhir, FOUR, stan an eliver! Half-volley in the slot, Gambhir won't miss out, watches the ball closely an ismisses it out of his sight

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, that's spanked! The open stance helps him figure the line and length quickly, uses all his might to smash it straight down the ground

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, Chris Lynn and his golf hits I tellya. This isn't off the middle, but that bottom hand power and the baseball swing takes it the distance, just one bounce and over the long-on ropes

6

to Chris Lynn, SIX, boy, has he nailed it! You bet. 95-metre smite. serves length and gets smoked for a maximum over long-off

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, rank long hop, Gambhir says thank you. Short, down leg, Gambhir swivels and nails the pull behind square

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, too much width gestures Raina as soon as he saw the ball flying over backward point. Tad short and Lynn pounced on the width on offer, slices the cut and gets four

4

Kulkarni to Gambhir, FOUR, 50-partnership. Clears his front leg an goes bam over mi-on. Right out of the screws

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, Koushik isn't learning. Keeps landing it short and gets smacked. Gambhir rocks onto his back foot and all he needed to do was get it over the fielder, did it with sheer ease

4

to Gambhir, byes, FOUR, keeps low and nutmegs DK, Gambhir didn't pick it, neither did the keeper, runs are runs

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, sits on one knee and chips the slog-sweep over mid-wicket, excellent batting this from GG

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, outside edge and four! Opens the bat face to steer, the edge flies to the right of Kulkarni who dives belatdely

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, make that 20 off the over. Gambhir has raced off to 40 in no-time. A real dart on the pads, Gambhir milks it off his pads. Easy peasy

6

Smith to Chris Lynn, SIX, if that ball had voice, it would have pleaded: "Chris please take me for a journey". Lynn heard that and obliged, rubbish length ball outside off and the next thing Smith sees is the ball flying over deep mid-wicket

4

Smith to Chris Lynn, FOUR, stands tall in the crease and flat-bats a shortish delivery straight down the ground

6

Smith to Chris Lynn, SIX, in his zone and Lynn doesn't have any second thoughts. Marmalizes it with utter disdain, Roy came in the way to interrupt, he was never going to catch that. Never

6

Smith to Chris Lynn, SIX, the onslaught continues... Full ball, don't even look back Mr Smith, the ball has gone to Brisbane. Period

OT

Smith to Chris Lynn, 1 run, slower length ball outside off, Lynn drills it through cover and brings up a sparkling fifty

OT

Jakati to Gambhir, 2 runs, short ball on middle, Gambhir jumps on the back foot and lifts the pull over mid-wicket. 4th fastest team 100 in the history of T20 League, gee!

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, Koushik's night keeps getting worse. Fires it short and wide, Lynn gets a feather of an edge on the attempted cut, the edge runs past DK's gloves

OT

Jakati to Gambhir, 1 run, advances and compiles a well-deserved fifty with a ease to long-on

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, both of them have just played themselves in such good form here. Full ball outside off, Gambhir clears his front leg and crashes it inside-out to send it to the wide long-off fence. Superb hand-eye co-ordination

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, really ordinary bowling. It's a gentle short of length delivery on off-stump, the ball sits up for Gambhir who bludgeons it through mid-wicket

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, awful from . He bangs it in very short but the speedometer just shows 128kph. The ball was actually on its way down when Gambhir slashed it over backward point. GUJ being clobbered out there

4

Jakati to Gambhir, FOUR, down the track in a flash, right to the pitch of the ball, and driven so beautifully over the covers. The trick in the shot was that he delayed the charge and came out only when the ball was released

OT

Kumar to Gambhir, 1 run, bowls it short from round the wicket, Gambhir ulls it away to dee square leg. 150 of the artnershi comes u

6

to Chris Lynn, SIX, way too many half-trackers from today. Just can't get away with it at this level. Lynn rocks back and blooters it over long-on

6

Kulkarni to Chris Lynn, SIX, that about sums their night up. McCullum makes a bluner in the eep an palms the ball over the ropes. A miscue from Lynn off a full toss, shoul have been taken at long-off

4

Kulkarni to Chris Lynn, FOUR, short of length, probably an off-cutter, Lynn mows the ball in front of long-leg who comes running forwar for the catch. But the ball rops well short an then bounces over him

6

Kulkarni to Chris Lynn, SIX, flat, strong, six! Kulkarni misses his mark, bowls it in the slot an is wallope over long-on. Lynn can o no wrong

4

to Roy, FOUR, cracking shot, Roy is off and running in his T20 League career. On a good length and just outside off, he leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and drives it back past the non-striker, no need to run for those

4

to Roy, FOUR, nicely played by Roy, width on offer from . He leans into the shot, opens the face of the bat at the last moment and steers it behind square on the on-side, gets it past backward point and into the fence

4

to Roy, FOUR, lovely, the reverse sweep in full flow from Roy, gets down low and gets it into the gap behind square on the off-side. It was picked up from the middle-stump line as well

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, that's a shocker from Kuldeep and he concedes four runs. This was dropped short and wide of off, McCullum backed away and cut it straight to backward point. Kuldeep dived over the ball and ends up conceding a boundary

W

to Roy, out Caught by Y Pathan!! Roy falls and KOL have struck early. A nothing shot from the England opener. This was another long hop from , Roy rocked back on the pull, didn't go through with the shot completely - was perhaps just looking to help it on its way, gets a fat top-edge, high and over mid-wicket. Yusuf ran back and completed an easy catch. Roy looks gutted as he walks off. Roy c Y Pathan b 14(12) [4s-3]

6

to Brendon McCullum, SIX, massive, tossed up nicely by , fell right into McCullum's hitting zone, he gets forward and clubs it high and over mid-wicket, went a long way over the ropes

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, cracking shot, poor ball from , drops this one short and wide of off, McCullum makes room and cracks it over cover, couple of bounces and over the ropes

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, has been too short today, drags his length down once again. McCullum rocks back and pulls him past the square leg umpire

4

to Raina, FOUR, nicely played! Fraction fuller and on the stumps, Raina leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and punches it back at the bowler. got a hand onto it, but it still beats mid-off to the fence

4

to Raina, FOUR, this is excellent cricket from Raina, made room as he came down the track. spotted it and followed him - Raina is good enough to tuck it past square leg, the man in the deep is very square and has no chance

D

to Raina, 2 runs, that will go down as a chance, but Kuldeep did very well to get to the ball, got both hands and lost control as he fell down. Would have been a stunner had he held on. This was short and on the stumps, Raina was making room for the pull, gets slightly cramped on the shot, hits it high and over mid-on. Kuldeep ran a long way back, stretched as he got both hands to the ball - but can't complete the finishing act

4

Yadav to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, can't afford to drop short on this pitch. McCullum rocks back and pulls it through mid-wicket, bisects the two men in the deep to a nicety

6

Yadav to Brendon McCullum, SIX, McCullum is in some form alright, comes down the track, doesn't get too close to the ball, allows him a free swing and he deposits it high and into the sightscreen. Another expensive over for the Kolkata

4

to Raina, FOUR, that ruins the over for , leg-stump half-volley, all Raina had to do was get some bat on that. Once he did - fine-leg, who was inside the ring had no chance

W

Yadav to Brendon McCullum, out Lbw!! has his man. This was tossed up on the leg-stump line, McCullum was looking to turn it towards the on-side, the ball straightened and went past his inside edge, struck him low and in front of leg-stump, would have been crashing into the stumps. Easy call for the umpire and it's also time for the strategic break. Brendon McCullum lbw b Yadav 35(24) [4s-4 6s-2]

6

Pathan to Finch, SIX, Finch gets going with a massive hit, usuf tosses one on the stumps, Finch gets a big stride forward, lifts it with the spin and sends it high and over deep mid-wicket for a maximum

6

Pathan to Finch, SIX, back-to-back sixes from Finch, flighted deliver on the stumps, Finch gets forward and thumps it high and wa over the fence at deep mid-wicket

W

Yadav to Finch, out Caught by Suryakumar Yadav!! Second wicket for . One shot too many from Finch. It was the wrong 'un which was on a fuller length, Finch gives himself room to go inside out, the bat turns on impact and the ball skews towards long-off. Suryakumar runs around the circumference and pouches it cleanly. Finch c Suryakumar Yadav b Yadav 15(8) [6s-2]

4

to Raina, FOUR, a well-controlled pull shot from Raina. did not get height on the short of length delivery, just above the waist and Raina got on top of that nicely, rolled his wrists and struck it behind square, beating deep square leg with ease

4

to Karthik, FOUR, Pandey tried his best, but the ball still found a way to reach the fence. Width offered outside off, Karthik maintains a low base and drills it in front of square, Pandey runs across from sweeper cover, dives and flicks it in but the ball backspins and touches the rope

OT

to Raina, 2 runs, in no man's land. The googly and Raina takes it on without reading, he charges down and goes across the line, the leading edge balloons up and drops in front of the incoming long-off fielder

4

to Karthik, FOUR, for the umpteenth time today has landed it on a shortish length, sat up nicely for Karthik, who cut it away fiercely square of the wicket. Timed it superbly as it beat the sweeper cover comfortably

OT

Yadav to Raina, 2 runs, comedy of errors. First Raina gets away with yet another leading edge, goes on the bounce to long-on. He was never wanted the second and Karthik was almost near the bowler's end before Raina decided to go, Karthik makes it in and for some unknown reason doesn't throw it to Uthappa and Raina also survives. He's living a charmed life

OT

to Raina, 1 run, fifty for Raina. 29th in T20 League. Not one of his best. Quicker delivery on the stumps, clocked at 113kph, that's the pace of Bhatia. Raina is hurried into the flick and sends it along the ground to deep mid-wicket

D

to Raina, 1 run, dropped! Would you believe it? I have lost count of the number of chances Raina has got today. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Raina kneels down and sweeps to deep backward square, went straight to Yusuf and he split it. He was on the move a bit and that put him off. He's been whisked away from that position by a stoic GG

6

to Karthik, SIX, ends the over with a maximum. A much needed one for GUJ. Bit of air on this and a fuller length meant Karthik was able to get underneath that, he heaves it high and over the cow corner fence

OT

to Raina, 1 run, Raina backs away and follows him with a yorker, squeezed to backward point

4

to Raina, FOUR, it is all going Raina's way. He might walk on water today if he wants and get away with it. A well-directed yorker, Raina brings his bat down and squirts it off the inside edge to the fine leg fence. Not far away from the leg-pole

4

to Karthik, FOUR, misses the yorker and Karthik is in no mood to let him off, doesn't bother to get his front leg in line with the delivery, just goes through the line and smacks it straight down the ground

D

to Raina, 1 run, Raina and collide. Short and slow outside off, Raina cuts it on the bounce to backward point. Both were ball watching and Raina dashed into the bowler, is down on the ground and Raina makes his crease. The GUJ skipper goes back to check on and the Englishman is fine

6

to Karthik, SIX, Karthik picked the bones out of that. Length delivery right in the slot and it was a clean swing of the bat from Karthik, lofted it with a straight bat and cleared long-on with ease

4

to Karthik, FOUR, Karthik is playing a blinder here. goes short and outside off, it was the off-speed delivery and Karthik spotted it early, carves it up and over backward point. No need to run for those

4

to Raina, FOUR, 16 runs off the over and not the best of outings for on T20 League debut. He finishes with 3-0-35-0. Once more the slower delivery is on the shortish length, Raina waits and cuts it behind square, splitting backward point and short third man to perfection

4

to Karthik, FOUR, off-pace delivery and once more Karthik read it early, he waited in his crease and stayed leg-side of the ball, lofts it handsomely over the extra cover fielder. All timing there from the Tamil Nadu man

4

to Karthik, FOUR, Karthik does a ABD. The reverse sccop. Full delivery and close to the yorker length, Karthik switches his stances and sends it over the short third man fielder, almost went the distance

W

to Karthik, out Caught by Suryakumar Yadav!! A fine knock ends. He provided the much needed impetus to the innings. Deserved a fifty, but that's cricket. Short delivery that caught Karthik by a bit of surprise, pulled it towards long-on and Suryakumar takes the easiest of catches. Raina pats him on the back as he trudges off. Karthik c Suryakumar Yadav b 47(25) [4s-6 6s-2]

4

to Raina, FOUR, Raina finishes off in style. Very full and outside off, Raina crouches low, opens the bat face and drives it square on the off-side, the field was up and that was played beautifully
