All|Overs 1-50
4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, McCullum is underway! fires it in full on middle, McCullum drills it down the ground. The umpire has to duck under it to evade that. The ball races away into the fence

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, offers bit of width outside off and McCullum latches onto it. Treks back in his crease and fiercely cuts through covers. Good start for GUJ

4

to Finch, FOUR, shot! Trademark Finch shot. Seam-up delivery wide of off, Finch manufactures more room by backing away. Lifts it inside-out over the cover region

6

to Finch, SIX, wow! The intention is clear from both batsmen. Slightly overpitched, Finch gets low and smacks the slog sweep over deep mid-wicket. There was a man in the deep, but he couldn't do anything

4

to Finch, FOUR, 16 off the over. Short, seam-up delivery outside off, cracking cut well in front of square on the off-side

4

to Finch, FOUR, wow! He has muscled it. With mid-on inside the cirlce, that's a safe shot. Backs away a tad and tonks this fullish delivery over mid-on

4

to Finch, FOUR, this is brilliant batting from the Victorian. Sees it in his slot and lifts it handsomely over mid-on

6

to Finch, SIX, second six for Finch and GUJ are off to a flier. Waits for this slingy ball to come to him and dispatches it into the long-on stands. 15 runs off the over

W

to Finch, out Caught by M Pandey!! Gone! gets his man. After bowling a slower bouncer, opts for the quicker one this time. Finch is slightly late on his pull as he is hurried by the pace. Gets it off the top portion of the bat. Pandey at deep square leg, settles under it and takes it calmly. Finch c M Pandey b 31(15) [4s-4 6s-2]

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, that came right off the middle of the bat. Angling in short of length delivery, McCullum jogs down and leg-side-ish to cut it behind a diving backward point. No chance whatsoever for third man

6

to Brendon McCullum, SIX, 50 up for GUJ in 23 balls! Head-high bouncer, McCullum isn't perplexed by that. He is on the front foot to pummel the pull well in front of square on the leg-side. The deep mid-wicket fielder is just a spectator

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, 16 off the fourth over. Superb adjustment. Seeing McCullum jogging down, darts it outside off, McCullum spots it slices it backward of point. One bounce into the fence

D

to Raina, no run, dropped! The odds of this happening are high when you field a non-regular keeper. Raina pokes at a turning off-break and gets an outside edge. Uthappa fails to gobble it up. How costly is that going to be?

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, shot! McCullum moves leg-side and follows him and darts it in. McCullum crouches low and smacks it with a sweep through backward square leg

W

to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by M Pandey!! Would you believe it? B-Mac has carved one straight down the throat of sweeper cover, Manish Pandey, the man. Didn't even had to move an inch. Gives himself a lot of room and takes on a 140ks full delivery, smacked it off the meat and for a fleeting moment I thought it was a maximum. Not to be. Brendon McCullum c M Pandey b 33(17) [4s-5 6s-1]

4

to Raina, FOUR, room on offer and Raina makes the most of it. Adjusted well as he rose high to flay it past a diving backward point

W

to Karthik, out Caught by Gambhir!! Nathan continues to pick wickets. DK reveals his cards a touch too early, seeks to flick into the on-side and sends a leading edge into the off-side. Gambhir lurking at cover anticipates and takes a good catch diving to his left. The ball popped up off his palm, but he hung onto it while falling parallel to the ground. Karthik c Gambhir b 3(3)

4

to Raina, FOUR, quintessential Suresh Raina inside-out loft over extra cover. Anyone surprised? He does this so often and that too off the first ball of the over. Makes room and goes bang off the middle

6

to Raina, SIX, just grazes Pathan's fingertips at fine leg. Hooks a short ball and wasn't quite in control of it, it loops up and goes flat to the right of fine leg who sprints with his right hand stretched to the maximum. Just can't get there

4

to Raina, FOUR, gets into a picturesque position as he loft-drives over extra cover. On one knee mind you, sweetly timed and in the gap as well

4

to Raina, FOUR, is quick to jummp onto the back foot, gets inside the line of the flatter delivery and thumps it with a clean swing of the willow. A boundary behind square on the leg-side

4

Yadav to Raina, FOUR, deft! Raina camps deep inside the crease and steers the ball with softest of touches as he opens the bat face at the right moment. Needed a dive from Narine at short third man, he is just lazing around

W

Yadav to Ishan Kishan, out Caught by U Yadav!! And this is what [Most] players do when they don't have a clue of which way the ball is turning. Ishan Kishan belongs to the same genre, or at least, looked like so. Crouches and looks to break the shackles with a slog-sweep, poor connection, Umesh Yadav takes a well-judged catch at deep backward square. Ishan Kishan c U Yadav b Yadav 4(11)

4

Yadav to Dwayne Smith, FOUR. No sighters. Walk in and get a boundary. As simple as that. Slog-sweeps from outside off and boy! The ball flies away

W

Yadav to Dwayne Smith, ot Bowled!! Makes a mess of Dwayne Smith's stmps does mesh Yadav. Sheer pace. Steams in and bowls it at fll throttle, it was pitched on a fller length and snapped back in slightly, Smith was late to get his bat down. It grazes a chnk of bottom edge before crashing into the stmps. TIMBAHHHH! Dwayne Smith b Yadav 5(4) [4s-1]

4

Yadav to Raina, FOUR, just a slice of inside edge and through. It skids straight on and nicks the edge before racing past the leg-stump. Tough for Robbie to pick

OT

Yadav to Raina, 1 run, drives to the right of a diving bowler and marks his fifty

6

Yadav to Raina, SIX, picks the slower ball and deposits into the crowd. An off-ctter from Yadav, Raina backs away and nails the slog sweep from a length. Sailing over mid-wicket

4

Yadav to Raina, FOR, there's the width which Raina has been eyeing. It's on the shorter side too, and Raina is able to lash it away past backward point. Beats third man to the bondary

6

to Jadeja, SIX, top-edged .. and taken by Surya at long-on. But he's stepped on the boundary cushion. Straightaway signals a six, making it easy for the umpire. A desperate move from Jadeja after three dot balls, he nearly falters but somehow the top-edge flies right at the edge of the boundary, where Surya does really well having stationed himself just inside the ropes. But his weight is leaning back as he stretches overhead and the momentum takes him over

4

to Raina, FOUR, length ball outside off, Raina moves leg-side and slaps it straight back past the bowler. Mid-off was up inside the ring, and Raina is able to slot it to his left

4

to Raina, FOUR, he's winning it for his team. Makes some room and nearly slices this overpitched delivery from off-stump. The placement is spot on, so is the timing as he nails this past backward point

6

to Raina, SIX, slower ball this time, and all the way. He's tearing into here. Picks up the change of pace right off the hand and whips the ball off middle and leg into the deep mid-wicket stands

OT

Yadav to Jadeja, 1 run, generously tossed up on off, overpitches, and Jadeja drills it down to long-on

6

Yadav to Raina, SIX, quickly onto his back knee to smoke a slog-sweep over mid-wicket. He sees the ball drifting into leg, it's in the slot and Raina gets under it beautifully. Just 8 needed now

W

Yadav to Raina, out Caught by M Pandey!! Raina perishes just short of the finish line. It's a flat leg-break outside off, Raina wants to cut but the ball turns away sharply and takes a thick top-edge. It loops up to the left of Pandey at point who takes a really sharp catch diving across. End of a fine knock, and surely a match-winning one. Raina c M Pandey b Yadav 84(46) [4s-9 6s-4]

4

to Jadeja, FOUR, Jadeja seals it with a boundary! Short from , enough width for Jadeja to slap it past backward point. Superb chase from the Gujarat to hopefully provide a boost to their turbulent campaign

4

Kumar to Narine, FOUR, that's Daren Sammy alike from Sunil Narine. The former is very good with his whi without moving his feet much and Narine has emulated him. The line is straight on the stums from K, Narine stands and flicks stylishly over backward square leg and beats the man at fine leg

4

Kumar to Narine, FOUR, now that's some resonse from Narine. He knows that the outswinger is troubling him, stes down the itch and forces the bowler to dro it short, which will not allow the ball to swing, and then he goes back over the bowler's head for a boundary

4

Kumar to Narine, FOUR, he's doing it nicely, Sunil Narine! Just what Gambhir and Co. wanted with the romotion. K bowls short of length and just outside off stum, Narine waits for the ball to come and hits through the line over mid-on

4

to Narine, FOUR, sports an "Ooohhhh," with a wry smile on his face. This wasn't a bad delivery. Full and swinging away outside off stump, Narine drives without moving his feet, sends it to the right of mid-off and it races away

4

to Narine, FOUR, that's edged and no one at slip. delivers one outside off stump, Narine goes hard at it and gets a thick edge that escapes past the keeper

4

to Narine, FOUR, off the back foot and over mid-off. This is great exhibition of batting from the West Indian. Short of a length just outside off stump, Narine lofts nicely from the middle of the bat and collects his sixth boundary

4

to Narine, FOUR, he's only dealing in boundaries. tried the change of pace to fox the batsman, but it went too full and landed right in the slot for Narine to drive, credit to Narine for delaying the shot to get the timing right and hit it well wide of the man at long-off

4

Thampi to Narine, FOUR, this is almost predictable. Thampi has the pace to trouble Narine, so one could see the bouncer coming. Narine was already backing away before the bowler delivered the ball and easily managed to pull it over mid-on

4

Thampi to Narine, FOUR, the idea was right from Thampi - to opt for a fuller one as follow up for the bumper - the execution was poor. It's a full toss and Narine slices the drive over cover-point

6

Thampi to Narine, SIX, gee, this is the shot of the match so far. Could well be the shot of the day. Highest score for Narine in T20s. Thampi bowls a length delivery on the leg stump, Narine goes leg-side and lofts the drive easily over mid-off and holds the pose for the cameras

W

to Narine, out Caught by Faulkner!! In the airrrr, the timing is not there and mid-on back-pedals to take a good catch. The Narine cameo ends, but he's done a great job for his side. bowls flat and on the leg stump cramping the batsman for room, Narine was on the back foot and couldn't time the pull shot well enough to collect another boundary. Totally mistimed it and holed out to mid-on. Narine c Faulkner b 42(17) [4s-9 6s-1]

4

Kulkarni to Uthappa, FOUR, that's a gift from Kulkarni. Short of a length elivery own the leg-sie, Uthappa flicks, the outfiel is fast, the ball races through backwar square leg an fine leg ha no chance

4

Kulkarni to Gambhir, FOUR, that's too wie an Gambhir is a very goo off-sie player. Reaches out to meet the ball, was on a fuller length, creame through cover from the mile of the bat

D

to Uthappa, 1 run, uppish, catchable but Finch lets it slip. A tough chance though. Maybe a swifter fielder would have easily had that. Shortish delivery on the stumps, Uthappa mistimes the pull, Finch didn't move quickly to his right from long-on, tried to grab the ball with his right hand but couldn't

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, very straight, Uthappa kneels down and pulls it along the ground through square leg, no protection in the deep. Looked like the ball came off the inside half of the bat

6

to Gambhir, SIX, that's easy pickings for Gambhir. Full and outside off stump, the ball is turning back in, so the mid-wicket area is a favourite zone for a left-hander, Gambhir swings with the spin and sends this all the way - the first six for him this season

OT

Smith to Gambhir, 4 runs, oh dear, Jadeja misses the stumps and it's gone for four overthrows. A direct-hit would have seen Gambhir walk back though. It looked very interesting when he chose the striker's end, despite Uthappa being halfway down the pitch. Should have been a dot ball, but it's four runs now. Gambhir tapped this to point and thought about a run, took a couple of steps out of the crease, his partner was charging towards the other end, but Gambhir sent him back. All well in the end for KOL

OT

Smith to Gambhir, 1 run, steered away to third man

6

Kulkarni to Uthappa, SIX, Uthappa is the best front foot puller. Picks the back of a length elivery early, just plonks his foot forwar an short-arm jabs the pull over cow corner. Flat an all the way

4

Kulkarni to Uthappa, FOUR, eft, elicate an effective. The off-cutter outsie off, Uthappa waite for the ball to arrive, cut it late an pierce short thir man an backwar point to perfection. He couln't have playe that better

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, the idea was to steer it to third man, but Uthappa got it finer than he would have liked. Slower delivery angled across the batsman, Uthappa gets an edge that eludes Karthik to his right. Should he have gone for the catch? Tough one to call

W

to Gambhir, out Caught by Raina!! The partnership has been broken. If you wanted someone from the GUJ team to be under this skier, it would be Raina. Short of a length and on off, Gambhir went for the pull and the top-edge goes straight up, keeps swirling and almost kisses the night sky before coming down, Raina from mid-wicket, called for it, removed his cap to get a good sighter and then reverse cupped it safely. Gambhir c Raina b 33(28) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, that was just a nudge and the lightning fast Kolkata outfield does the rest. Short of length and on the batsman's hips, Pandey backed away and twirled his wrists to place it wide of short fine leg, once in the gap it was a boundary

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, uses the pace of and collects a boundary. Pushed through just outside off, Uthappa waits and steers it fine. Once past the 30-yard circle, there's no stopping that

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, fifty for Uthappa. Second for him this season. Gets there with a cheeky little scoop. Expects to target the stumps, shuffles across and gets low, then laps it over Karthik to bring up the milestone

4

Thampi to Uthappa, FOUR, that might be the commentators curse. Thampi missed the yorker by a few yards, low full toss on middle, Uthappa flicks it to the fine leg fence. The fast outfield on display again

4

Thampi to Uthappa, FOUR, the ball hits the turf and zips off. McCullum had a few yards to cover and he couldn't get there. Very full and just outside off, Uthappa lofts it wide of long-off, one bounce four

6

Thampi to Uthappa, SIX, 10 off the first two balls. The back of the hand slower one does not come out right for Thampi, ends up as a nice juicy full toss for Uthappa, who heaves it into the crowd at deep mid-wicket

W

Kumar to Uthaa, out Caught by Brendon McCullum!! A fine knock comes to an end. He had to go and could only manage a miscue to long-on. Might have been the slower one from k, the seedgun shows it as 119kh, Uthaa wanted to hit it straight back over him, got it nowhere close to the middle and McCullum running across from long-on takes it with ease. Uthaa c Brendon McCullum b Kumar 72(48) [4s-8 6s-2]

4

Kumar to Y athan, FOUR, to shot! K missed his yorker by a coule of inches and that was enough for athan, he oened the bat face on the loft and laced it wide of long-off. The oening of the bat was imortant to get the lacement right

4

Kumar to Y athan, FOUR, last two balls ruins the over for K. It was turning out to be a good over until then. Full toss on middle and leg, athan whis it square and there's no rotection in the dee, 12 off the over

4

Thampi to M Pandey, FOUR, full toss and Pandey cashes in. He stands deep in the crease and slices the drive square on the off-side, sweeper had no chance of cutting that off

W

Thampi to M Pandey, out Bowled!! Thampi deserved that wicket. Has his arms aloft and roars in delight as well. A yorker that swirls back in, Pandey clears his front leg to have a clear swing of the arms, missed and the ball deflected off the pads, crashed into middle stump. Pandey never looked at ease in his stay. M Pandey b Thampi 24(21) [4s-2]

W

Thampi to Y Pathan, out Suryakumar Yadav Run Out!! 1 run completed. What was Pathan doing? Suryakumar wanted to give him the strike and Pathan didn't budge. Very full delivery around off, Pathan squeezes the drive to long-off. Baz gets across to the ball quickly and fires a wide throw to the striker's end. Karthik collects and throws the ball on to the stumps. Suryakumar was sent back and he couldn't get back in time. Caught well short of the crease. Suryakumar Yadav run out (Brendon McCullum/Karthik) 1(1)
