BALL BY BALL
Kolkata Knight Riders
Ov 18: 1 4 0 0 4 6 ( 15 Runs )
17.6 - J Archer to A Russell
SIX! There are the winning runs! DK finishes things off in style. Back of a length on middle and off, the Kolkata skipper stays back and heaves it across the line. Clears wide long on and sends it into the stands. KOLKATA WIN BY 6 WICKETS!
17.5 - J Archer to A Russell
FOUR! That's a boundary. Length ball swinging away around off, Karthik tries to drive it on the up and gets an edge down to third man. Gowtham looks to stop it with a dive but he touches the rope as he does so.
17.4 - J Archer to A Russell
Played to mid-wicket region by the batsman.
17.3 - J Archer to A Russell
Full toss on middle, hit to long on for a single.
17.2 - J Archer to A Russell
FOUR! Overpitched and Dre Rus puts this away. Outside off, the big man stays leg side and crashes it through the left of the mid off fielder. No stopping that, it wins the race to the fence.
17.1 - J Archer to D Karthik
Back of a length quite straight in line, Dinesh pulls it through backward square leg for a single.
Ov 17: 4 1 4 0 0 1 ( 10 Runs )
16.6 - J Unadkat to D Karthik
Angling in at first and then straightening up a touch, this time DK manages to work it to third man. Single taken and he'll retain strike.
16.5 - J Unadkat to D Karthik
Looks to guide to third man once more, is beaten yet again.
16.4 - J Unadkat to D Karthik
Beaten! Angling in from around off, Karthik hangs his bat out and fails to make contact.
16.3 - J Unadkat to D Karthik
FOUR! Deft from the skipper. Plays this really late. Waits for the length ball to come to him before opening the face and running it past Jos Buttler, to the third man boundary.
16.2 - J Unadkat to A Russell
Angling in, takes the inside edge of Russell's bat before thudding into the pads. A quick single is stolen.
16.1 - J Unadkat to A Russell
FOUR! Shortish in length outside off, Russell wastes no time in going after Jaydev as he carves this over backward point. The umpire wants to check whether it bounced inside the rope or not, and replays show it did. So a boundary. 20 needed in 23.
