Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders Highlights - 2nd Leg


Punjab Bat

Watch cricket highlights - Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders from IPL 2009 - the 2nd Leg.

Scoreline: KKR 153/3 - Brad Hodge 70 (43), Sourav Ganguly 22
Mohali make it off the last ball - Mahela Jayawardene 52, Simon Katich 34

Kolkata had a listless start though Gayle spanked a few - remember this day cos this is probably the first and last time you’ll see McCullum taking 31 deliveries for his 19. Brad Hodge appeared to have taken the game away from Mohali with serious late hitting on a pitch that the experts out there said was around 130-140.

Classy Jayawardene eventually was central to the Kings runchase - he was lucky to escape a plumb LBW at a crucial point in the game, but KKR didn’t lose the game because of that. Their fielding did them in today.

There was a heated moment between Ishanth Sharma and Yuvraj Singh after the latter was dismissed but if you watch the last part of the 2nd video carefully, things seemed to have cooled down by the time the players came out to shake hands - Yuvraj makes an in-good-humour reference to the Sreesanth slap (IPL 2008) by raising his hand in a halfway-slap while meeting Ishanth.

Pregame: Punjab lost Round 1 between the two in a rain curtailed game - KKR vs Mohali Kings XI - 1st Leg. Chris Gayle’s final game by the way for KKR this season.
