Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Sunil Narine is named the Man of the Match. Switch over to the other tab to catch the action between Mohali and Jaipur. Stay tuned!

Pune lost too many a wicket early on. The top order crumbled. But Angelo Mathews and Sourav Ganguly seemed to have different plans with a 73 run partnership. But once Ganguly fell, the asking rate kept on creeping up and they fell short of 8 runs. Sunil Narine once again donned the magician's hat with a superb spell. He gave just 13 runs and took a wicket in his four overs.

Murali Kartik walks in. 12 REQUIRED OFF TWO BALLS!

19.4 de Lange to A Mathews, OUT! That sums up Pune for today, it seems. A low full toss, Mathews aims to heave over long on, but finds Laxmi Shukla charging in from long on, who plucks a wonderful catch, with his fingers underneath.

Commentary (Kolkata Knight Riders innings)

Sunil Narine is named the Man of the Match. Switch over to the other tab to catch the action between Mohali and Jaipur. Stay tuned!

Pune lost too many a wicket early on. The top order crumbled. But Angelo Mathews and Sourav Ganguly seemed to have different plans with a 73 run partnership. But once Ganguly fell, the asking rate kept on creeping up and they fell short of 8 runs. Sunil Narine once again donned the magician's hat with a superb spell. He gave just 13 runs and took a wicket in his four overs.

19.6 de Lange to B Kumar, KOLKATA WIN BY SEVEN RUNS! Full toss, hit straight to covers. Pune have lost FIVE matches on the trot now. 143/8

19.5 de Lange to B Kumar, FOUR! That's it for Pune it seems. Short of a length, Kumar gets a top edge which flies over the keeper for a boundary. 143/8

Murali Kartik walks in. 12 REQUIRED OFF TWO BALLS!

19.4 de Lange to A Mathews, OUT! That sums up Pune for today, it seems. A low full toss, Mathews aims to heave over long on, but finds Laxmi Shukla charging in from long on, who plucks a wonderful catch, with his fingers underneath. Third umpire is called in to check whether Shukla grasssed it, but it is clean. They also check for the no-ball but de Lange is well inside the crease. 139/8

19.3 de Lange to B Kumar, Full and straight, Kumar can only get it away straight to extra cover. 139/7

19.2 de Lange to B Kumar, FOUR! Good shot. Fuller length at 142.2 kph, Kumar gets underneath and just clears it over covers and mid off. 13 OFF FOUR BALLS NOW. 138/7

19.1 de Lange to A Mathews, Stump to stump, heaved down through mid-wicket. Just one though. 134/7

When you are 98/0 at the end of 10 overs, finishing at 150/5 shows that there has been a major collapse. Gambhir once again played a super knock and was supported on top by Brendon McCullum. From there on there was just a dramatic turn-around with Pune allowing only 52 runs in the last ten overs to add up to the five wickets. Angelo Mathews bowled a superb spell, conceding just 17 runs and taking two wickets. The pitch is a bit two-paced. Join us in a while.

19.6 W Parnell to M Tiwary, DROPPED! Uthappa drops another one. Full and wide outside off, Tiwary swings and the outside edge goes to to the right of Uthappa, who dives and just gets a glove to it. One run to end the innings. 150/5

19.5 W Parnell to D Das, In the yorker outside off, hit to Ganguly at covers for one. Excellent over so far. 149/5

19.4 W Parnell to D Das, Good length outside off, Shukla swings and it goes over Ganguly at covers, he gives it a chase but another old man, Kartik from long off sticks his boot at the ropes to keep it just two. 148/5

19.3 W Parnell to M Tiwary, Bowls wide outside off, Tiwary gets a leading edge over covers for one. 146/5

19.2 W Parnell to M Tiwary, In the air and safe! Another over-pitched delivery, Tiwary sends it high in the air and it lands in empty spaces at mid off. They take two. 145/5

19.1 W Parnell to M Tiwary, Fuller length outside off, hit down to Kartik at long off, who fumbles and they take two. 143/5

The players are out. Gautam Gambhir and Brendon McCullum are the openers. Murali Kartik, the left-arm spinner to bowl first up. The reception for Dada is just unbelievable. There is a slip in place.

Toss - Gautam Gambhir will spin the coin. Ganguly calls it wrong. Gambhir wins the toss. KOLKATA WILL BAT FIRST. He reckons he can give the batsmen freedom to put up some runs. Marchant de Lange comes in for Brett Lee for the only change in the team. de Lange will play his second game after playing the first match against Delhi. Sourav Ganguly says that he would have batted first as well. Manish Pandey comes in for Ashish Nehra. Jesse Ryder will sit out to make space for Angelo Mathews.

Hello all. It's match 47 between Kolkata and Pune at the Eden Gardens. Since the start of the tournament this contest has been highly anticipated, this ground being Sourav Ganguly's home turf. It is more than just a match up as it involves a bigger adrenaline rush than just cricket as the home ground will be rooting for their favourite son. But Pune are facing a four match losing streak and they face a stern Kolkata test, who are second on the table and have rightly earned that spot.

Marchant de Lange will be the man to bowl, after a big discussion with Gautam Gambhir and Jacques Kallis. 18 runs required off the last over.

18.6 S Narine to B Kumar, Full and fast at 106 kph, Kumar is surprised and is forced to play it down. Just four runs off the over. 133/7

Bhuvneshwar Kumar walks in at number 9.

18.2 S Narine to W Parnell, That spinned a lot! Fuller on off, spins away further as Parnell is beaten inside the line. 130/6

Laxmi Shukla walks in now.

18.1 B Kumar to Y Pathan, OUT! Steven Smith takes it! Pathan's woes with the bat continues. Short in length outside off, Pathan miscues his pull just over the mid on region. Smith sprints in from the deep and takes a fine catch. 134/4

17.4 R Bhatia to S Ganguly, OUT! Is this the turning point? Dada goes now. Short delivery on the middle, Ganguly pulls it, it has a lot of height, but did not come of out of the middle of the bat, Abdulla at deep mid-wicket takes the catch. 128/6

17.3 R Bhatia to A Mathews, In the yorker zone, Mathews plays it through covers for one. 128/5

3.1 B Kumar to G Gambhir, FIVE WIDES! A very bad delivery to start with. Length and down the leg side, Gambhir flicks and misses, swinging down further, Uthappa stretches but the ball goes off his gloves and finds the fine leg fence. 27/0

2.6 I Abdulla to R Uthappa, HUGE shout for LBW! Uthappa aims to reverse sweep and misses. INSIDE EDGE. Oh yes, Robbie is saved here. The appeal from Abdulla is excessive but the umpire shakes his head. They take one. 22/1

2.5 I Abdulla to R Uthappa, Once again Uthappa comes charging down, it was an arm ball and he is beaten by it to get hit on the pads. 21/1

2.4 I Abdulla to R Uthappa, WIDE! Short and down the leg side. Uthappa sweeps and misses. 21/1

2.3 I Abdulla to M Pandey, Very full down the leg side, flicked away in front of square leg. McCullum gets to hit and hits the stumps at the non-striker's end but Pandey is well in. 20/1

2.2 I Abdulla to R Uthappa, Bowls it flatter, driven towards long off for a run. 19/1

2.1 I Abdulla to R Uthappa, Fuller length, driven straight back. 18/1

2.3 M Kartik to B McCullum, Baz has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 20/0

2.2 M Kartik to B McCullum, Hint of turn there. Length delivery, rips in just enough as McCullum gets beaten by it to get hit on the pads. The LBW appeal is turned down, but boy that was on middle stump! Maybe, height is the only issue. 20/0

2.1 M Kartik to B McCullum, FOUR! Well executed. A fuller length outside off, McCullum gets down and reverse sweeps it well enough to beat Ganguly at short third man, who has no chance. 20/0

1.2 de Lange to M Pandey, WIDE! Length down the leg side, Pandey lets it go. 11/1

Manish Pandey to walk in at number 3.

1.1 de Lange to M Clarke, OUT! And he gets Michael Clarke on his first delivery. A short of a length delivery, Clarke is a but hurried up to flick it and the ball just about flicks the bails off. A very unfortunate way to get out but Clarke gets has to go. 10/1

1.6 A Dinda to G Gambhir, Excellent running now. Fullish, Gambhir flicks it through mid-wicket and calls early to come back easily for the second. 16/0
