Commentary (Royal Challengers Bangalore innings)

Lakshmipathy Balaji is named the Man of the Match. That's it from all of us. Switch over to the other tab to catch all the action from the match between Chennai and Delhi. Till then, farewell!

So, Kolkata have done exceedingly well in the second part of the innings after failing with the bat. Balaji was outstanding with the ball and was well supported by Lee and Kallis. None of the Bangalore batsmen could get going and they were shattered early on with the scorecard reading 33/5. From there on, it was only a matter of time before things were wrapped up.

Vinay Kumar walks in at number 8.

11.5 L Balaji to D Vettori, OUT! Balaji is on fire now Four wickets for him. Fuller and slow, Vettori prefers his much-favoured shuffle across the stumps.

11.4 L Balaji to D Vettori, Caught behind appeal. Length on off, nips back in a hint to thrust Vettori's pads on its way to Bisla. Balaji appeals for LBW and caught behind both. The umpire reckons it was outside leg and there was no edge as well. 60/5

10.1 R Bhatia to S Tiwary, Full toss, Tiwary lofts it over mid on for one. 44/5

9.5 L Balaji to D Vettori, Drives it through mid off for one. 42/5

9.4 L Balaji to D Vettori, FOUR! Poor lines. Length on the pads, Vettori shuffles across and works it down to the fine leg fence with ease. He prefers leg side and Balaji should know that. 41/5

Saurabh Tiwary walks in at number 5.

5.5 L Balaji to V Kohli, OUT! The typical Kohli gesture after he loses his wicket. Length outside off, Kohli gets a leading edge straight to Manoj Tiwary at point, who takes it cleanly. Kohli was stand-still for the moment and was not ready to leave the crease, just frustrated for losing his wicket. The umpire checks upstairs for no-ball but it is fine. 20/3

5.4 L Balaji to V Kohli, Length delivery cutting in, Kohli misses it and the ball hover over the stumps and swings further down for a tough take for Bisla. 20/2

4.2 B Lee to de Villiers, Good length again, de Villiers cuts and misses. 18/2

4.1 B Lee to de Villiers, FOUR! Superb. Short outside off, AB de Villiers waits on and slashes it hard through cover-point. Two boundaries in two balls and both the batsmen have crashed it off their back foot. 18/2

3.6 J Kallis to V Kohli, FOUR! Shot! Short of a length delivery outside off, Kohli sits tight and whacks it all along covers. 14/2

3.5 J Kallis to de Villiers, Back of a length delivery outside off, dabbed down on the off side for one. 10/2

3.4 J Kallis to V Kohli, Length on the pads, tucked away on the leg side for one. 9/2

Ab de Villiers is the new man in at number 4.

3.3 J Kallis to C Gayle, OUT! There is no Gayle-storm today and it's Kallis the man who ensures that. Short of a length delivery, jumping onto Gayle who pulls.

Virat Kohli walks in at number 3.

1.4 J Kallis to C Pujara, OUT! Pujara goes in the second over and Kallis does early damage. Length delivery, scrambled seam, Pujara looks to guide it past first slip with an open face but it goes straight to Yusuf Pathan at waist height.

Commentary (Kolkata Knight Riders innings)

Lakshmipathy Balaji is named the Man of the Match. That's it from all of us. Switch over to the other tab to catch all the action from the match between Chennai and Delhi. Till then, farewell!

So, Kolkata have done exceedingly well in the second part of the innings after failing with the bat. Balaji was outstanding with the ball and was well supported by Lee and Kallis. None of the Bangalore batsmen could get going and they were shattered early on with the scorecard reading 33/5. From there on, it was only a matter of time before things were wrapped up.

19.6 Al Hasan to V Kumar, OUT! Vinay Kumar holes out and KOLKATA WIN BY 42 RUNS! It was a full delivery and Kumar lofts it down to long on for Shukla to pouch it. 123/9

19.5 Al Hasan to Z Khan, Lofts it over mid on for one. 123/8

19.4 Al Hasan to V Kumar, Reverse paddles it down to short third man for one. 122/8

19.3 Al Hasan to Z Khan, Gets down and works it on the leg side for a run. 121/8

19.2 Al Hasan to Z Khan, Slogs it on the full to deep mid-wicket for a couple this time. 120/8

19.1 Al Hasan to V Kumar, Flatter and full outside off, drilled down to long on for a single. 119/8

Kolkata end at 165. They would not be happy with this inspite of taking it off on a flier. After the first three wickets, the rest were just single digit figures. With Shakib Al Hasan and Ryan ten Doeschate drafted in for Brendon McCullum and Sunil Narine, the all-rounders failed to get going and the first half of the plan has not been chalked out. If there is a Gayle-storm coming in, this match would not last 20 overs. Join us in a while.

19.6 H Patel to R Bhatia, FOUR! A very sensible shot. Short and slow, Bhatia waits on and nicely guides it down to fine leg. 165/8

19.5 H Patel to B Lee, Tucks it away through square leg for one. 161/8

19.4 H Patel to B Lee, SIX! Lee swings and swings hard. A low full toss, no half measures for Lee to whack it over long on for 86 metres. Maybe Lee should be sent in a bit early from now on? 160/8

Rajat Bhatia comes now.

19.3 H Patel to L Shukla, OUT! Tch tch, the downside continues for Kolkata. A short one, Lee pulls hard, it goes off the top edge and carries over mid-wicket, it was swerving and Zaheer Khan had to be alert running towards it and takes a fine catch. 154/8

19.2 H Patel to B Lee, Fullish length outside off, knocked down to long off for a single. 160 is a struggle now. 154/7

19.1 H Patel to B Lee, Short outside off, Lee does not get bat on that. 153/7

Jacques Kallis and Gautam Gambhir are the openers who make their way out. So, the skipper has promoted himself at the top of the order for a left hand-right hand combination probably. Zaheer Khan has the ball in his hand.

The players had come out but have gone back now. Seems to be some wiring problem and hence the delay.

Bangalore - Gayle, Pujara, V Kohli, Tiwary, Agarwal, de Villiers(WK), Vettori(C), Kumar, Z Khan, Patel, Muralitharan.

Kolkata - Kallis, Gambhir(C), M Tiwary, Y Pathan, ten Doeschate, Al Hasan, Laxmi Shukla, Bisla, R Bhatia, B Lee, Balaji.

Kolkata have two overseas changes. Shakib Al Hasan and Ryan ten Doeschate come in the place of Brendon McCullum and Sunil Narine.

Toss - Vettori wins the toss and BANGALORE WILL BOWL FIRST. Chris Gayle does come back to the squad at the expense of Andrew McDonald, inspite of a good outing for McDonald in the initial match.

Bangalore lead 5-3 in the head-to-head battle against Kolkata.

Chris Gayle is expected to come back into the squad and in all probabilities, Andrew McDonald will have to sit out. Kolkata, inspite of having the best combination of players, have fallen on their faces in consecutive matches.

Hello all to the coverage of Game 10 between Kolkata and Bangalore at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Sit back and enjoy the fight between these two power-houses.

18.1 ten Doeschate to V Kumar, TWO WIDES! Way too wide outside off, the keeper does not gather around and they take the extra run. 108/8

Last over of the innings. This could as well end up to be the turning over. Some lusty blows and Kolkata would be happy.

18.6 V Kumar to L Shukla, Similar ball, whacked down to deep square leg for one. A horrible throw and AB fails to gather it. They take one more. 153/7

18.4 V Kumar to Shukla, Short of a length on middle, Shukla aimes to pull and misses. 151/7

Brett Lee is the new man in at number 9. He can swing the long handle.

18.3 V Kumar to Al Hasan, OUT! Shakib goes now and Kolkata are simply losing the plot here. Full ball outside off, Al Hasan whacks it hard, it goes off the outside part towards Pujara at long on, who pouches it safely. 151/7

1.5 V Kumar to G Gambhir, Length delivery outside off at 133.7 kph, cut away to point. 8/0

0.4 B Lee to C Pujara, Full and straight. Pujara gets an inside edge which hits his pads. Lee appeals unsuccessfully for an LBW. 6/0
