  • 19.6

    P Krishna to K Gowtham, FOUR! Boundary to finish the innings. Gowtham pulls this short ball across the fine leg fence, but it won't matter. KOLKATA WIN BY 25 RUNS! A comprehensive victory in the end for the hosts, did quite well with the ball.

  • 19.5

    P Krishna to H Klaasen, Yorker fired in on the stumps, drilled to long on for a run.

  • 19.4

    P Krishna to K Gowtham, Well-disguised slower one, full outside off, Gowtham is low to swing across the line but ends up spooning it off the splice just in front of short third man. Single taken.

  • 19.3

    P Krishna to K Gowtham, Not a wide called. Krishnappa walks a step across as Krishna slips it down the leg side. The umpire remains unmoved for some reason.

  • 19.2

    P Krishna to K Gowtham, Aiming the base of off stump, lofted over the cover region for a double.

  • 19.1

    P Krishna to K Gowtham, Length delivery in the channel outside off, Gowtham winds up to go big downtown but fails to connect. All but over now, it seems.

  • 18.6

    A Russell to H Klaasen, Short ball in line of the stumps, a big pull and a miss from the batsman. 34 off the final over. Rajasthan need 6 maximums to win this.

  • 18.5

    A Russell to H Klaasen, Klaasen has flicked the ball off his pads. They manage to come back for the second.

  • 18.4

    A Russell to K Gowtham, Four singles off four deliveries. Dre Russ feels no pressure, does he? Terrific bowling, this. Angles in a length delivery on middle and leg, Gowtham swings and gets it off the inner portion first onto his pads, then in front of mid-wicket for a run.

  • 18.3

    A Russell to H Klaasen, Keeps it full again, close to off, it's smacked down towards wide long off for another one.

  • 18.2

    A Russell to K Gowtham, Two off the first two. Full on off stump, Gowtham drives this off the outer half behind point and takes one.

  • 18.1

    A Russell to H Klaasen, Just the one. Full just outside off, Klaasen throws everything he has at it, only to get an inside edge to Lynn at backward square leg. One run taken.

  • 17.6

    P Krishna to S Binny, OUT! Binny departs! Krishna delivers a dipping full toss in the line of the stumps, Stuart goes down to sweep but is a bit early into it. As a result, his bottom hand comes off the handle and he spoons a simple catch to Chris Lynn at backward square leg. Probably the pressure got to him, he walks back without disturbing the scoreboard.

  • 17.5

    P Krishna to S Binny, Second dot in a row. Talk about holding his nerve under such pressure. Well done. Varies the length again and bangs it in short, Binny misses his pull shot.

  • 17.4

    P Krishna to S Binny, Dot ball. Superb. Scrambled seam, a yorker outside off, Binny crouches and tries to steer it with an angled bat, but fails to do so.

  • 17.3

    P Krishna to H Klaasen, Full outside the line of off stump, a mishit towards extra cover. Brisk single taken. Excellent bowling, was almost in the blockhole, that.

  • 17.2

    P Krishna to H Klaasen, Quicker this time, 141.2 kph, just outside off, Klaasen swings and gets it off the inner half through mid-wicket. Has no hesitation to call for the second and come back for it too.

  • 17.1

    P Krishna to H Klaasen, No wide! This is interesting. Seemed like it went well across the tramline. Full and well outside off, Klaasen swings and misses without moving at all.

  • 16.6

    P Chawla to H Klaasen, Knocked to long on for a single. Rajasthan need 43 to win in 3 overs. Needless to say, Klaasen has to go berserk.

  • 16.5

    P Chawla to S Samson, OUT! The set batsman has been sent back. Piyush Chawla gets the all-important breakthrough. The quicker leg break, doesn't turn much and Samson goes back to pull. Lofts it over wide mid on, lot of height, not enough distance, and it's taken by Searles out in the deep after moving to his right. Game changer?

  • 16.4

    P Chawla to H Klaasen, Short and wide, cut square of the wicket on the off side for one.

  • 16.3

    P Chawla to S Samson, Fifty for Sanju Samson, his 3rd of the season and 10th overall in the League. He flicks this full ball in front of square leg and jogs over to the other end. Has been a solid knock so far, but needs to finish it off.

  • 16.2

    P Chawla to S Samson, FOUR! Full toss and that's pummeled! Perfectly in the gap too. Superb shot. Outside off, Samson smashes it through the covers, beating the man in the deep. Moves to 49 with that.

  • 16.1

    P Chawla to H Klaasen, Drifting in on middle and off, flicked through mid-wicket by leaning forward. Comfortable single taken.

    S Narine to H Klaasen, Forces this quicker one through to long off and crosses over.

  • 15.5

    S Narine to H Klaasen, FOUR! Innovative, yet expected from someone like Heinrich Klaasen. Sees the flight and instantly preps himself for the reverse paddle. Lofts it over Chawla at short third man and beats him to the rope.

  • 15.4

    S Narine to S Samson, Plays with the spin as he turns it square on the leg side. To the man in the deep and a single is earned.

  • 15.3

    S Narine to S Samson, Spinning in, on middle and leg, Samson attempts to work across the line but misses and gets hit high on the pads.

  • 15.2

    S Narine to H Klaasen, Uses the depth of the crease to go back and then offers a solid punch down to long on for one run.

  • 15.1

  • 14.5

    K Yadav to H Klaasen, Gets off the mark by flicking this away off his pads for a single.

  • 14.4

    K Yadav to H Klaasen, Loopy and full outside off, pushed off the front foot to cover.

  • 14.3

    K Yadav to H Klaasen, Shout for a leg before, shut down by the umpire. Lands it on leg and it turns away, beats the edge and catches Klaasen on the back pad. Loud shout, but it's missing the off stump.

  • 14.2

    K Yadav to H Klaasen, Beaten! Kuldeep has his tail up. Lands this on off and makes it to spin away from Klaasen. He hangs his bat out and gets beaten.

  • 14.1

    K Yadav to A Rahane, OUT! KULDEEP STRIKES! A wicket right after the strategic break. The partnership is broken, just what Kolkata needed. The set Rahane is gone. Bit unfortunate in the way he's dismissed to be honest. Tossed up from Yadav, Rahane is down to sweep but gets it off the toe end back to the bowler who gobbles it up.

  • 13.5

    S Narine to S Samson, Missed out! Half-tracker from the spinner, Samson is onto his back foot in a jiffy and goes for the big pull. Makes no connection whatsoever and gets rapped on the thigh pad.

  • 12.5

    A Russell to A Rahane, Cleverly takes the pace off this and bowls it just outside off, Rahane swings across the line and misses it altogether.

  • 12.4

    A Russell to S Samson, Extra bounce for Russell once again. Short of a length on off, Samson is taken by surprise and ends up spooning a leading edge towards cover. Single taken.

    A Russell to A Rahane, Works it off his pads, in front of square leg and changes ends.

  • 12.2

  • 11.5

    P Chawla to S Samson, Slightly quicker through the air, quite full on the stumps, dug out back to the bowler.

  • 11.4

  • 9.6

    J Searles to A Rahane, Risky single! That's not needed actually. A slower length ball outside off, Rahane guides it straight to short third man and looks for a run. Rahul responds immediately and rushes across. The fielder has a shy at the keeper's end but misses as Tripathi dives in. 87/1 at the halfway stage, Rajasthan need 83 more for a win.

  • 9.5

    J Searles to S Samson, Good length ball outside off, a mistimed punch shot towards extra cover for a run.

  • 9.4

    S Narine to A Rahane, EDGY FOUR! Quicker one, a bit short and outside off, Rahane gets back to cut but it takes the outside edge of the bat and flies closely past the keeper's gloves to the third man fence. Sensibly played out the over and got 10 from it as well.

  • 7.5

  • 7.4

    S Narine to S Samson, This one spins away from around off, Samson hits it against the turn and finds the gap at mid-wicket. Once again they run aggressively and take a brace.

  • 4.5

    S Narine to R Tripathi, Oh yes, a big inside edge spotted! Bad review by Kolkata. Narine flicks it on a length around middle, it straightens a bit after landing as Tripathi tries to work across the line. He seems to have missed it to get hit on the back pad. They put in an unsuccessful appeal. Karthik and Narine have a chat and go for the referral. The replays detect a big chunk of wood.

  • 2.4

    P Chawla to A Rahane, MISSING LEG! Very good use of the review by Rajasthan. Chawla once again a bowls a googly on the shorter side. It's just outside off and turning down the leg side as Rahane fails to work it away across the line. He is hit on the pads, they appeal and the umpire raises his finger. To be honest, that looked to be missing leg to the naked eye. Rahane opts for the referral and the replays find that it's going down.

  • 2.3

    P Chawla to A Rahane, Another googly by Chawla but it's on the shorter side outside off. Rahane goes back and easily places it square of the wicket on the off side.

    P Krishna to R Tripathi, Mistimed shot! Krishna follows the batsman down the leg side with a good length ball, Tripathi is cramped for room and somehow keeps it out. It comes off from the upper half of the bat and goes a bit aerially towards mid-wicket. They cross.

  • 1.2

    P Krishna to A Rahane, Back of a length ball outside off, Rahane flashes his bat at it and it flies off the outer half of the bat to third man. The fielder in the deep collects it on one bounce and they cross.

  • 19.5

    Ben Laughlin to A Russell, FOUR! Wonderful batting from this Caribbean! Full and just outside off, Russell makes room and just powers it past covers. No chance for long off to get anywhere near that. Moves to 48, can he get a 50?

  • 19.4

    Ben Laughlin to J Searles, OUT! Slower delivery undoes Searles! Length ball at 117.1 kph, Javon looks to go big. The ball takes the top edge and travels straight. Archer gets across from long off and takes a good running catch to his right. Perhaps Searles would've been better off giving the strike to his partner.

    Ben Laughlin to A Russell, This one is hit through mid-wicket but Russell just gets one.

    Ben Laughlin to D Karthik, OUT! Timely breakthrough for Rajasthan! 50th T20 catch for skipper Ajinkya Rahane to see the back of his opposite number. Full and outside off, Karthik looks to smash it into orbit. That he does, but sans a lot of distance. Rahane backtracks from covers and takes a good catch tumbling backwards.

    K Gowtham to R Uthappa, OUT! Gowtham is having a fine, fine time this season in the Indian T20 League. Now he nets the big fish Robin Uthappa. A good player of spin, Gowtham deceives him with the pace here. Slows it through the air and lands it in line of the stumps. Uthappa looks to work it to the leg side and only manages to spoon an easy catch off the leading edge back to the bowler. Gowtham gobbles it up and the disappointment on Robin's face is writ large. Kolkata two down, early in the piece.

    K Gowtham to S Narine, OUT! Gone next ball! Goodbye, thanks for coming, says Gowtham, who has the last laugh. He tosses this one up outside off, Narine fails to abstain from coming down the track. Does so and misses the ball completely. As easy as stumpings come, Klaasen takes it and whips the bails off to start the celebration for Rajasthan.

    K Gowtham to S Narine, FOUR! Runs straightaway! Banish all the talks of an off spinner being effective against left-handers to the trash. That's how Narine dealt with this one. Flatter outside off on a shorter length, Sunil stays back and smashes it through covers for a boundary. Whatta start!
