Commentary (Kolkata Knight Riders innings)

Right! That's it from us then! End of yet another weekend. Not a great Sunday as compared to the cracking Saturday yesterday. The Mumbai-Mohali encounter was a thriller while this one was a sadly one-sided affair. Tomorrow is a single game and it will be played between Jaipur and Bangalore at Jaipur at 1430 GMT (2000 IST). Also, the third Test between West Indies and Australia gets underway as well. You can catch all the action by surfing the tabs. Until then. on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

BRETT LEE HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Smiles and says that the ball is coming up pretty well from his hand and feels that the boys summed up the wicket pretty well tonight. Also praises the fielding for stepping up and adds that overall they played as a unit. Admits that fitness is the key and every player tries to maintain fitness throughout the season.

The two captains come forward to have a chat. Gambhir feels that the wicket was very low and credits his opponent's bowlers for bowling well. Is happy to get those 2 points and hopes to continue winning. Sangakkara feels that his team batted poorly after being just one down in the first 10 overs. Credits Kolkata for fielding well and wants his side to play some smart cricket.

1.MAXIMUM SIXES AWARD - YUSUF PATHAN. 2.BEST CATCH OF THE MATCH AWARD - DEBABRATA DAS.

This is how the teams stand at the end of this game - 3.KOLKATA - 8 POINTS FROM 7 GAMES while Deccan cut a sorry figure. 5 losses on the trot. Rock bottom.

Gambhir and Kallis played well on a testing pitch while Tiwary was very fluent towards the end. Dale Steyn was the pick of the bowlers by a long margin, with 2/24 in 4 overs but he lacked support from the other end. Mishra did a bit with his variations.

Right! Credit to Hyderabad for stretching it till the last over, but if truth be told, they were never in the game. May be, a touch, when Pathan fell but the home side always needed a special effort to defend 126 successfully.

19.1 JP Duminy to M Tiwary, WIDE! And Duminy gifts it away! Horror ball, landed down the leg side, Tiwary goes for the pull but misses. Doesn't matter as the team gets the run off the wide. KOLKATA WIN BY 5 WICKETS! 127/5

Interesting. JP Duminy to bowl the final over. Just 1 needed to win now.

18.6 A Mishra to M Tiwary, Drives it through the covers for a run. 10 runs from the over! 126/5

18.5 A Mishra to D Das, Chips this over mid on for a single. 125/5

18.4 A Mishra to D Das, The wrong 'un, landed outside off, spinning in, Das goes for the drive but is beaten. 124/5

18.3 A Mishra to M Tiwary, Drives it through mid on for a single. 124/5

18.1 A Mishra to M Tiwary, Pushes it through mid-wicket and comes back for the second. 119/5

16.6 D Steyn to M Tiwary, More controversy. Tiwary dabs it to third man and gets a single. Now there is some drama. Steyn pats off the dust off Tiwary''s trousers who shows his back side and asks the bowler to wipe off some more dust! Oh dear.....it is getting horribly nasty but the Hyderabad dug out are loving it. 6 runs and a wicket from the over, Steyn finishes with figures of 4-0-24-2. 107/5

16.5 D Steyn to M Tiwary, Oohh..what is happening out there? Full outside off, Tiwary comes down the track and hammers it to mid off. Steyn has a verbal spat with the batsman who, without patting his bat in the crease walks down the pitch to have a chat with the bowler! Meanwhile, an alert Sangakkara at mid off charges onto the ball and has a shy at the striker's end but misses! Had he hit...boy, that would have been some controversy. 106/5

1.MAXIMUM SIXES AWARD - YUSUF PATHAN. 2.BEST CATCH OF THE MATCH AWARD - DEBABRATA DAS.

This is how the teams stand at the end of this game - 3.KOLKATA - 8 POINTS FROM 7 GAMES while Deccan cut a sorry figure. 5 losses on the trot. Rock bottom.

Gambhir and Kallis played well on a testing pitch while Tiwary was very fluent towards the end. Dale Steyn was the pick of the bowlers by a long margin, with 2/24 in 4 overs but he lacked support from the other end. Mishra did a bit with his variations.

Right! Credit to Hyderabad for stretching it till the last over, but if truth be told, they were never in the game. May be, a touch, when Pathan fell but the home side always needed a special effort to defend 126 successfully.

19.1 JP Duminy to M Tiwary, WIDE! And Duminy gifts it away! Horror ball, landed down the leg side, Tiwary goes for the pull but misses. Doesn't matter as the team gets the run off the wide. KOLKATA WIN BY 5 WICKETS! 127/5

Kolkata would be very happy with their performance, every bowler apart from Pathan and Kallis doing well. Lee was economical while Balaji and Narine picked up 2 wickets each. Shouldn't be difficult for Kolkata to chase it down. Stay tuned for the run chase.

A pain-staking batting performance from Hyderabad. They got off to a decent start but after Patel got out, lost steam. The batsmen found it pretty hard to score and Dhawan was the only batsman who managed to get to 50.

19.6 S Narine to JP Duminy, Full on middle, 110.9 kph, Duminy goes for the slog but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. A single taken. HYDERABAD FINISH ON 126/7! 126/7

19.5 S Narine to JP Duminy, Low full toss on middle, 111.7 kph, whipped through mid-wicket for a couple. 125/7

19.4 S Narine to A Mishra, Goes for the reverse sweep but gets it from the toe end of the bat towards cover. The batsmen go for the single, the throw comes in to the bowler who fumbles and the Mishra gets in. 123/7

19.3 S Narine to JP Duminy, Works it towards mid-wicket for a single. 122/7

Amit Mishra walks out.

19.2 S Narine to D Steyn, OUT! Caught! Tries to go again but this time does not get the elevation. Comes down the track and swings it over mid on. Tiwary comes forward from long on and takes a neat diving catch. 121/7

19.1 S Narine to D Steyn, SIX! Ferocious! Tossed up outside off, Steyn comes down the track and sends this flying over long on! Tiwary goes back, back, back and eventually lands up outside the ropes. 121/6

Right! Time for some action now! The players are out in the middle and waiting for play to start. Kumar Sangakkara and Shikhar Dhawan are the openers for Hyderabad. Yusuf Pathan to start off proceedings. Sangakkara to face. All set! Here we go!

UPDATE - The game is scheduled to start at 2105 IST (1535 GMT). The players are already warming up out there on the field. A full 20-over game scheduled.

UPDATE - The umpires are having an inspection in the middle and Wasim Akram is having an animated chat with Billy Bowden. No rain at the moment and the covers are coming off.

Oh dear...the rain is playing cat and mouse with us. It is back and so are the covers. Sigh....

The big covers are slowly coming off the field. The umpires are inspecting the outfield.

Oopss....looks like we will have a DELAYED START. It was drizzling pretty heavily throughout the day but it has stopped now. The ground is covered. The umpires are having an inspection. They are positive about a start soon.

Kumar Sangakkara spins the coin, Tails is the call from Gautam Gambhir and it is Tails. KOLKATA WILL BOWL. Gambhir feels that Cuttack has always been a good wicket and wants to restrict Hyderabad to a decent total and chase it down. Hopes to get the overseas combination settled for the tournament. Sangakkara wanted to bat first anyways and now wants his side to put up a good total on the board. He too, feels that this is a good track to bat upon.

Gambhir says that his team has been playing some good cricket and bad cricket and should have won 4 games in a row. Hopes to play some good cricket tonight and get a win. Feels that the points table is pretty tight with the teams very close to each other. Hopes that the batsmen do well at the top and the bowlers get wickets.

Kumar Sangakkara says that the boys have just got to take heart in themselves and take pride in playing for their franchise and feels that it is not hard to motivate them. Feels that their bowling has been exceptional but has struggled to close out games. Admits that there have been 3 close games which they have lost and hopes to settle the score tonight.

Welcome back for the second game of the day and thanks a lot for staying with us. After a thrilling first match, we are all set for the Hyderabad-Kolkata encounter. This match will be played at Cuttack which will serve as a home ground for Hyderabad. Sit back and enjoy all the action!

Interesting. JP Duminy to bowl the final over. Just 1 needed to win now.
