Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

7.56 pm We’ll bring you the Man of the Match details when we have them officially, but it’s going to be Dre Russ of course. Meanwhile you can hop on over to the second match of this double-header day, another high voltage clash – Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals.

7.52 pm We’ve had a floodlight failure. We’ve had the home team looking down for the count. And then we’ve had Dre Russ switching on Beast Mode. With Shubman Gill to provide the final garnish. Superb finish by Russell and Gill. They added 65 runs in 25 balls – Russell has 49* off 19, Gill has 18* off 10. They needed 53 to win in the last three overs and did it – that’s the most anyone has scored to win in the last three overs in any IPL game. That’s how remarkable this was.

19.4 6 Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill Shubman wins it with a six What a remarkable chase by KKR. Incredible scenes at Eden. Down the track again, takes it on the full and send sit into the sightscreen. Eden goes ballistic SIX
19.3 0 Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill flatter outside off, tapped back to the bowler no run
19.2 6 Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill Shubman’s around too, he reminds us down the track, reaches the pitch of the ball and lofts it well over long-on. Beautiful use of the feet, beautiful, clean strike SIX
19.1 1 Shakib Al Hasan to Russell almighty heave but only gets an under-edge to deep square leg 1 run
19.1 1 Shakib Al Hasan to Russell Russell stays put and Shakib second guesses him by firing it down leg. That will be a wide 1 wide

13 needed off the final over and Shakib to bowl

End of Over No.19 Kolkata Knight Riders 169/4 This Over (21 runs)

18.6 1 Kumar to Russell powerfully struck again, but there is a sweeper cover so only a single. Again, it means Russell is on strike 1 run
18.5 6 Kumar to Russell oh my this should be illegal that’s a mis-hit. A total mis-hit. And it’s gone over the extra cover boundary. How does he do it? Bhuvi kept it wide outside off, and Russell moved slightly across, was almost falling over but clubbed it off the toe-end of the bat. And still sent it over the fence SIX
18.4 0 Kumar to Russell rare dot ball, goes wide outside off, and Russell was backing away again so doesn’t connect with the swing no run
18.3 4 Kumar to Russell incredible this was a yorker that was perhaps off by just millimetres, but Russell power-drives it by going deep in his crease from leg stump to long-off. Mid-off’s despairing dive not enough FOUR
18.2 6 Kumar to Russell that’s got some air miles on it! Russell is turning the heat on. clears his front leg and lifts this full delivery from leg stump so high over midwicket it might need a visa. Way into the crowd SIX
18.1 4 Kumar to Russell Russell’s power is something full ball on leg stump, and he gets his leg out of the way to power it through midwicket for a four FOUR

34 off 12… KKR’s captain had done it with a similar equation in the Nidahas final…

End of Over No.18 Kolkata Knight Riders 148/4 This Over (19 runs)

17.6 1 Kaul to Russell full toss outside off and Russell wanted to belt the cover off the ball, but he mistimes it, and sends it to Warner at long-off, who is quick to relay the ball back. But Russel’s kept strike for the next over 1 run
17.5 4 Kaul to Russell clubbed stand and delivery by Dre Russ. Back of a length and wide outside off, he threw his hands at it and sent it powering through extra cover FOUR
17.4 1 Kaul to Shubman Gill full ball outside off, he swings too, but gets a thick inside edge to deep midwicket 1 run
17.3 1 Kaul to Russell that was hit incredibly hard but straight to the man at deep midwicket. Length ball outside off and he swiped it with power, but went flat and one bounce to the fielder 1 run
17.2 6 Kaul to Russell take that He’s coming to the party late, but how. Low full toss now and he muscles it over the bowler’s head. Bottom of the bat, but such is his power that he sends it over the rope SIX
17.1 6 Kaul to Russell boom too full, half-volley on leg stump and Russell clears his leg and swings through the line to send it soaring over deep midwicket SIX

53 from 18, even Russell’s reach might not be that much…

End of Over No.17 Kolkata Knight Riders 129/4 This Over (6 runs)

16.6 1 Kumar to Russell fantastic bowling yet another yorker, and all Russell can do is jab his bat down to dig it out. Jammed into the ground hard enough that it bounces over Bhuvneshwar and they get a single 1 run
16.5 1 Kumar to Shubman Gill another pinpoint yorker, and Gill clips it off his toes to short fine leg. Brilliant bowling 1 run
16.4 1 Kumar to Russell smart bowling, keeps it very wide outside off and just inside the tramline, has Russell reaching for it and he can only chop it away into the offside for a single 1 run

Rohit: “Dre Russ punches gloves with Rashid?? Or Rana” – with Rashid. Should have said punches his gloves with Rashid’s fist…

16.3 1 Kumar to Shubman Gill length ball outside off, cut to deep point to get Russell back on strike 1 run
16.2 2 Kumar to Shubman Gill lovely cover drive, leaned into it beautifully. Cover gets a hand to it, so it gives enough time for extra cover on the fence to run around and field 2 runs
16.1 0 Kumar to Shubman Gill pinpoint yorker on off stump, and he can’t do much except pat it back to the bowler no run

59 needed off 24

End of Over No.16 Kolkata Knight Riders 123/4 This Over (9 runs)

15.6 4 Rashid Khan to Russell one bounce into the extra cover fence! Russell sends Rashid’s last ball to the boundary, clubbing it from outside off over the in-field. There’s life in this game yet perhaps FOUR
15.5 1 Rashid Khan to Shubman Gill short arm jab to deep midwicket for a single 1 run
15.4 0 Rashid Khan to Shubman Gill slider outside off, chopped tentatively into the offside no run

Gill walks out in a cauldron of a chase

15.3 W Rashid Khan to Rana strikes first ball after the break lights out at Eden, now lights out for KKR? This was the leg-break, pitched on middle and spun in just enough to beat his attempted drive back with a straight bat, strikes him on the pad. Loud appeal and the finger goes up. Rana doesn’t review, walks off OUT
N Rana lbw b Rashid Khan 68 (47b 8×4 3×6) SR: 144.68

7.31 pm The players are back on the field. Dre Russ punches gloves with Rashid before going to the non-striker’s end. KKR need 64 off 28. We’re all set to restart

7.29 pm Sreshth has another nugget: “Andre Russell isn’t wasting time though. He’s on the practice pitches, with Simon Katich bowling to him.”

7.27 pm Sreshth has potentially good news: “The lights are steadily, but slowly, coming back on”… and the bad news. “…It will still take a good 7-10 minutes to take full effect.”

7.23 pm: And our stats guy Shiva Jayaraman says the par score is 126, which means KKR are behind. Meanwhile umpires and players walking off, this doesn’t look good…

7.21 pm The timeout is over, but the lights are not yet back. This is one of those times when you want the metaphor of ‘his strokeplay lit up the ground’ to be true to life…

And Sreshth pings: The tower above the digital scoreboard has lost some lights. The groundstaff are on, with the rope, to remove some dew. Moody and Laxman are in the middle with the Sunrisers players. This is the Tower at the High court end.

Meanwhile, here’s a forecast to chew on: less than five overs to go. It’s Dre Russ versus the Forecaster. KKR have just about 15% chance of sealing this chase, and we’ve got them reaching 155 by the end of their innings.

7.18 pm Uh-oh. The lights have gone off in one of the towers. And play has stopped. And they have sensibly taken the strategic time-out. Will it be enough to get the lights back working?

15.2 0 Rashid Khan to Rana went for the conventional sweep but misses and is struck on the pads. Outside off no run
15.1 4 Rashid Khan to Rana pre-meditated reverse sweep for four to square third man. Unbelievable shot, and nailed it to perfection FOUR

Rashid coming on for his final over. Potentially game-changing

Ayush 45: “What else does a cricket fan ask for after the most boring IPL opener ever yesterday…an absolute gem of a game .. 70 odd of 30 with the most destructive Dre Russ at the crease” – Yes, and the equation is 68 off 30 now.

End of Over No.15 Kolkata Knight Riders 114/3 This Over (10 runs)

14.6 0 Sandeep Sharma to Russell beautifully bowled. Pinpoint yorker that Russell can only jab down to keep it from going onto the stumps no run
