All|Overs 1-50
4

to Narine, FOUR, easy. Don't bother. When you have such good hands, just put bat to ball. Short of a length, sat up wide of off-stump, Narine flays it over point. Period.

4

Thakur to Narine, FOUR. Well placed. Needles the gap between mid-off and extra cover with a firm drive. Lot of bottom hand power on that

4

Thakur to Narine, FOUR, throws his bat at a wide delivery and gets four. Thick edge and it races away past the cordon

W

Sundar to Gambhir, out Narine Run Out!! Narine is horrible when it comes to running between the wickets. Just pathetic I must say. Gambhir should have been aware of it. Just tickles the ball to short fine and rushes for a quick single. Narine had to respond. Thakur underarms the throw and then the MS special. Good game awareness. Just deflects the ball onto the stumps with sheer ease. Narine run out (SN Thakur/Dhoni) 16(11) [4s-3]

4

Thakur to Uthappa, FOUR. Just stand and deposit. Stays firm and picks the length early to lash a one-bounce four over mid-on, just an extension of the drive

4

Sundar to Gambhir, FOUR, he does this time. Rocks back and nails the cut square on the off-side. No-one moved

4

Sundar to Gambhir, FOUR, half-volley. Errs in length and Gambhir makes full use of...Times the pants of a drive through extra cover

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, street-smart cricket. Saw third man was inside the ring, just opens the bat face and runs it fine of him. Lovely

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, dropped by Unadkat. He has made a habit of hurting his head this lad. A complete mistimed cross bat swing from Robbie, swirls high and looks to be setting safe into the hands of deep mid-wicket. Unadkat keeps swirling with the ball, lands awkwardly on his back as he bumps his head onto the ground. To make matters worse, it dribbles away to the boundary triangles

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, advances, gets to the pitch of the delivery and nails the straight drive. Take four

4

Sundar to Uthappa, FOUR. Deft. Uses the crease to make subtle adjustments and glides a slider with a silk touch down to third man

6

Sundar to Uthappa, SIX, on one knee and spank! Right towards the pitch of the delivery and he goes kaboom over wide long-off

6

Sundar to Uthappa, SIX, make that two in a row. Over long-on this time. Good hand-eye coordination as he smears the ball with a clean swing of the willow

6

to Uthappa, SIX, had a good piece of that did Robin Uthappa. Got underneath and marmalized a floater over long-on for a 83-metre maximum over long-on

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, gorgeous. So pleasing to the eye. Watches the ball bull-eyed and extends his arms over the loft over mid-off. Pure timing

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, vintage Uthappa. Shuffles outside his off-stump and hacks one into the deep backward square area. The key was he watched the ball till the last minute and ensured he dropped the stroke in no-man's land

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, up and over! Rises on his toes and lifts a wide ball with a flat bat, over cover and into the fence

OT

to Uthappa, 1 run, a dazzling fifty for Robbie! That was short and he was quick to swat the pull away for a single. Soaks in the applause as the KOL camp is happy and so is the skipper

D

to Gambhir, 1 run, slower short ball, the ball climbs onto the batsman. Gambhir gets a top-edge and the man running in from the short fine leg region - Sundar drops it. The ball popped out as his elbows thudded onto the ground. Another dropped chance, another charmed life

6

to Uthappa, SIX, some salt into the open wounds being garnished in by Uthappa. The ball was short but Uthappa was tall enough to smack the pull away over cow corner. He wants a quick finish

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, slower, much slower short ball. Uthappa has all the time in the world to place the pull behind square on the on-side to tease the man from deep square to give it a valiant chase

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, ton for the combo!! That was deft, cute, earns a four with the help of an open face of the bat. The dive from the man at short third man spelt agony for Pune. The match continues to slip away

6

to Gambhir, SIX, looked like a mishit but that has gone for a half-a-dozen. The ball was in his zone and the batsman played the cross batted swipe to tonk the ball away over deep mid-wicket

OT

to Gambhir, 2 runs, third umpire was called in but Gambhir has made it. Fifty for skipper. Yet another valuable knock from the skippy. His 100th game for KOL, all as skipper and he has again stepped up in a crucial game. The ball was cut away into the off-side and the throw came in at the striker's end to which Dhoni flicked it back onto the sticks. GG had made it easily

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, ramps the ball over the man at point and that will run away for another four. This is turning out to be a canter for KOL

6

to Uthappa, SIX, onto one knee! The story after that is scripted. The author - Uthappa just looks into the stands. The ball has disappeared into the stands at the cow corner region

6

to Uthappa, SIX, this one is a sequel to the previous six. Meatier and bigger. He knelt down and clobbered the slog sweep deep into the stands. That should be six and a half, Danny would agree for sure

W

to Uthappa, out Caught by Tripathi!! Uthappa tries to do it with a glory shot but the slower short ball has done him in. Not before he has taken them to the doorsteps of a fine win. The slower ball hung onto the surface, the batsman was early into the slapped pull and managed to get a huge top-edge. The man at long-off back-pedalled and took it close to his chest. Uthappa c Tripathi b 87(47) [4s-7 6s-6]

W

to Gambhir, out Caught by SN Thakur!! The short ball does it again. The batsman late on it as the ball bounced a tad bit more. In the end, the spliced up parabola was taken at mid-on. Gambhir departs after yet another wonderful knock. Gambhir c SN Thakur b 62(46) [4s-6 6s-1]

4

Thakur to Darren Bravo, FOUR, crunches the drive through the covers and that is it! KOL win!! They will spring to the top of the points table thanks to this mauling. The target of 183 never ever looked enough. Going back to the final ball: in the zone and Darren Bravo threaded the ball into the gap with a lot of muscle power

4

Yadav to Tripathi, FOR, edged and for, that will go down as a chance, bt it climbed over thappa, he had no chance of taking it. Short of a length and shaping away from otside off, Tripathi was rooted to his crease as he frailed at that, got a thin edge that flew over the keeper's otstretched gloves

4

to Rahane, FOUR, cracking shot, long half-volley on Rahane's pads, that's easy pickings for him, prods across and clips it in front of square on the on-side. The man in the deep is square and has no chance

4

Yadav to Tripathi, FOR, lovely, mch better from Tripathi, shold make him feel mch better. This was a back of a length delivery otside off, he stands tall, gets on top of the bonce and pnches it in front of sqare on the off-side, beats cover and rolls away to the fence

4

Yadav to Tripathi, FOR, beatiflly played, jst a little shimmy down the track, Tripathi made room as he did so, drives it on the p and beats cover-point to his right, no need to rn for those

6

to Rahane, SIX, Rahane breaks the shackles, at first look - he didn't looked to have timed it, but it kept soaring high and into the stands at long-on. Just short of a good length and outside off, Rahane swung through the line and collects his first maximum

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, smashed, length delivery outside off, Tripathi comes down the track, takes it on a half-volley length and drills it back past the bowler, no need to run for those

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, nicely played by Tripathi, makes rom to a well flighted delivery, gets down on his knee and goes inside out over cover-point, a few bounces and over the ropes

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, Tripathi isn't afraid of the mystery bowler, gets down low, uses his reach to good effect and sweeps it to the right of square leg, beats the diving fielder and rolls away to the fence

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries for Tripathi, almost an action replay of the previous shot, gets down low to a well flighted delivery and sweeps it in front of square on the on-side, the fielder at square dives to his left and can't stop it, ends the powerplay in style

D

Grandhomme to Tripathi, 1 run, Yusuf has ma a mess of a simple chance, ran back from mid-wicket, got to the ball, went with both hands and shells it. Looks bad on replays. Coming to the ball, it was short and just outsi off, Tripathi swung across the line, got a fat top-edge - high and towards mid-on

W

to Tripathi, out Bowled!! Piyush has broken through the dangerous opening stand, Tripathi falls after a fine hand. This was the wrong 'un from Piyush, Tripathi didn't read it, backed away on the cut, the ball kept spinning back into him, cramped him for space, gets the under-edge and the ball goes on to crash into the leg-stump. Piyush gives him a send-off, but Tripathi has done his job. Tripathi b 38(23) [4s-7]

4

Grandhomme to Smith, FOUR, lovely shot, friendly full-toss from Grandhomme and Smith takes full toll of it, shuffles across and shovels it in front of square on the on-si, beats the man getting across from the ep

4

to Rahane, FOUR, cracking shot, tossed up just outside off, Rahane bends down low, gets on top of the bounce, rolls his wrists over and sweeps it in front of square on the on-side. de Grandhomme has no chance - getting across to his right from deep mid-wicket

4

Yadav to Rahane, FOUR, loosener from . Rank long hop on off, Rahane had all the time in the world to go deep in the crease and pull it in front of square, wide of deep mid-wicket and Rahane is getting a move on

4

to Rahane, FOUR, beautiful! Such a good cricketing shot. Rahane backs away to go inside out, fires it on the stumps, enough room to loft it handsomely over extra cover. One bounce and into the fence

4

Yadav to Smith, FOUR, precise placement from captain Smith. Floaty chinaman turning in around off, Smith stays low and plays the half sweep/pull, in the air and bisecting the two fielders in front of square on the leg-side

4

to Smith, FOUR, streaky! Short and turning in, Smith goes with all his might on the cut, the ball takes the top-edge and flies away fine. No chance for Yusuf to haul that in

W

to Rahane, out Stumped!! Is this match being played in Pune? Then why are they cheering for the fall of their own? That is because the wicket brings MS Dhoni to the middle. The carrom ball which is short in length, Rahane just took a step out and tried to carve it into the off-side, beaten and Uthappa was quick this time. The back foot was initially on the line, Rahane lifted it to get back in and Uthappa took that opportunity to light up the bails. Rahane st Uthappa b 46(41) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, more sloppiness. This time Yusuf lets one through the legs. Dhoni comes down the track and flicks it to mid-wicket, straightforward stop and Yusuf makes a mess of it. Right through him and Dhoni is underway

6

to Dhoni, SIX, you put fielders close to me, I will hit the ball out of the park. Dhoni is taking the aggressive option. This time gets right under the ball after dancing down, smokes it straight back over for a maximum

6

Yadav to Dhoni, SIX, chants of "Dhoni, Dhoni". He's looking in ominous touch here. Not all that short from , Dhoni went deep in the crease and might have top edged the pull, looked mistiemd at first, but the ball kept gathering momentum as it flew over the deep mid-wicket fence

4

to Smith, FOUR, second time Smith has got a streaky boundary off . Short and wide outside off, he throws the bat on the cut, right off the cue-end and the ball runs away fine to the third man fence

W

Yadav to Dhoni, out Stumped!! Huge wicket this. Full marks for GG as well. Bowling a spinner in the 18th over, you don't see that often. The youngster has outfoxed the master finisher. The googly which is short in length, Dhoni runs down the wicket and is beaten by the turn, does not get the body behind the line, Uthappa whips the bails off in a flash. loved that wicket. Jumps and follows it with a fist pump. Dhoni st Uthappa b Yadav 23(11) [4s-1 6s-2]

W

Yadav to Manoj Tiwary, out Stumped!! Take a bow Gautam Gambhir. It was a brave move to bowl and he is now reaping the rewards. Two wickets in the over. One of Dhoni and the other of the in-form Tiwary. The wrong 'un keeps bamboozling the batsmen, Tiwary like others does not pick, lunges forward to work it into the leg-side, missed and beaten comprehensively. Uthappa takes his time to remove the bails, but does so in the nick of time. Tiwary's back leg was on the line and he didn't even attempt to get it back in. Manoj Tiwary st Uthappa b Yadav 1(2)

6

to Christian, SIX, super shot! was a bit predictable there. Full and wide outside off, Christian lined up for the loft over extra cover and nailed it to perfection. All the way and a much needed one for PUNE

6

to Christian, SIX, back-to-back sixes and now we know why GG was relcutant to bowl the spinners at the death. Length delivery right in the swinging arc, Christian is known for his big-hittin and he thumps this over the cow corner fence

6

Yadav to Smith, SIX, 16 balls withot a bondary or a six, now PNE have three on the trot. This is a top shot. A difficlt one to play. Wide yorker otside off, Smith opens the bat face and carves it over point. Nice connection and pinged the ad boardings

OT

Yadav to Smith, 1 rn, fifty for Smith. This was a long time coming. He got a few starts in the previos games bt hadn't converted them. This time he does. Another wide yorker and Smith sqeezes it to backward point

W

Yadav to Christian, ot Caght by M Pandey!! Wicket off the final ball. Fll toss and Christian smacks it straight down the throat of deep mid-wicket. He backed away slightly and didn't have the space to free his arms, mistimed it and Pandey gobbled that p with ease. Christian c M Pandey b Yadav 16(6) [6s-2]
