Kolkata Knight Riders win by 39 runs. Well the name Manoj Tiwary comes to my mind, sensational finish he gave to the KKR innings to take the score to 183 and then a stunning catch in the deep to get rid of the dangerous Yuvraj. Agarkar playing his first game of the season bowled pretty well. Analyzing this match is so simple and the bottomline is that Kings XI lost because of a bad first over from Lee and a worst last over from Irfan!
Over 19.6: Beaten! AB Agarkar to K Goel, pitched up delivery, beats him with an outswinging yorker at 135 kmph.
Over 19.5: Single. AB Agarkar to B Lee, short and rising delivery, cuts it down to thirdman for a single.
Over 19.4: Beaten! AB Agarkar to B Lee, pitched up delivery, gets an inside edge to the yorker which is well stopped by Saha. Lee looking for a run is sent back and is lucky that the Keeper missed the stumps.
Over 19.3: 1 Bye. AB Agarkar to K Goel, pitched up delivery, beats him with a wide yorker and is forced to run for a bye by Lee who probably wanted to enjoy taking the strike.
Over 19.2: Single. AB Agarkar to B Lee, full toss, heaves it to wide mid wicket for a single.
Over 19.1: Boundary! AB Agarkar to B Lee, short and rising delivery, makes room and top edges his pull just over the Keeper down the legside for a boundary.
