Rant. Another game and a certain Hettmyer missing even if ABD not playing.

He really screwed himself over with those 4 consecutive failures. redface

they should put the man back in...oh well...he still getting paid

Narper 2019-04-19 14:38:29 

Narine to Kohli, no run, KKR's LBW review. Narine gets this to rip in big, beats Kohli's flick and finds his front pad. Now, it's struck him in front of leg, it's hit the knee roll as well in a massive stride. But it's not needed much convincing for the bowler or DK to take it up.In fact it's missed the leg-stump by another cool two stumps

Hetty is only interested in his gurl fren. He can get away with that in the West Indies but not in a professionally managed team. Replaced by a no name player.

Kuldeep Yadav to Kohli, FOUR, more flight, this time drifting wide outside off.

Kuldeep Yadav to Kohli, FOUR, loopy dip, but Kohli's just too smart. He runs down, maybe yorking himself in the process, but why bother when you have bottom-hands as good as these .. drills it straight dow

Narper 2019-04-19 15:22:30 

A Russell to Kohli, SIX, imperious from Kohli. Russell peppers it short, Kohli climbs into a great position and seizes on it. Muscling it some ten rows back over deep square leg. Dismissive from the Indian captain

Prasidh to Kohli, 1 run, fullish just outside off, Kohli drives it to mid-off and takes the single. Fifty for Kohli, his 37th half-century in the IPL and he gets a rousing reception from the Kolkata crowd. The RCB dug-out stands and applauds, Kohli waves his bat around to soak it all in

Narper 2019-04-19 15:42:54 

Kuldeep Yadav to Moeen Ali, SIX, to deep mid-wicket. Ali is teeing off now. Reaches his fifty in style. His 3rd IPL half-century. Slower and Kuldeep went wider of off,

Narper 2019-04-19 15:43:28 

Kuldeep Yadav to Moeen Ali, FOUR, wow! Ali is full flow here. Kuldeep is not learning. Pitches it up in the slot, Ali keeps a solid base and dumps it straight down the ground

Narper 2019-04-19 15:43:59 

Kuldeep Yadav to Moeen Ali, SIX, it's raining fours and sixes here at the Eden Gardens. Kuldeep is being taken to the cleaners. Looped up just outside off, Ali shuffles across and blasts it over long-on

Narper 2019-04-19 15:45:02 

Kuldeep Yadav to Moeen Ali, wide
wow! This is brutal hitting from Ali. Third six off the over. Again Kuldeep hurls it quick and in the arc for Moeen, who waits deep in his crease and tonks it over long-off. "Merciless" is the word which pops up on the giant screen

Narper 2019-04-19 15:46:06 

Kuldeep Yadav to Moeen Ali, out Caught by Prasidh!! And Kuldeep Yadav has the final laugh but the damage has been done. What a knock from Ali

Narper 2019-04-19 15:56:13

Narper 2019-04-19 16:08:56 

Gurney to Kohli, FOUR, the moment has arrived. Hundred for Kohli. His first this season and look at him go. Leaps up, roars in delight and brandishes his bat. Even the Kolkata crowd are going bonkers. Special knock from the Indian captain. Shuffles across his stumps and whiplashes it through mid-wicket. Kuldeep's miserable day continues as he fails to stop the ball near the fence

Russell three overs 1-17.

Narper 2019-04-19 16:10:18 

Gurney to Kohli, out Caught by Shubman Gill!! Finally, he's been dismissed. Fullish on middle, probably a tired shot from Kohli as he can't middle this swipe. It comes off the bottom and picks out Shubman at deep mid-wicket.

Kohli c Shubman Gill b Gurney 100(58 ) [4s-9 6s-4]

Narper 2019-04-19 16:27:48 

Steyn to Narine, FOUR, inswinger on middle and leg

Narper 2019-04-19 16:29:43 

Steyn to Chris Lynn, out Caught by Kohli!! Steyn is thrilled to bits and he totally deserves all of it. A full inswinger and Chris Lynn's lack of feet movement meant he chipped the drive straight down the throat of Kohli at mid-off. Came right off the cue end.

Narper 2019-04-19 18:34:14 

Virat Kohli, Man of the Match:
Felt really good, after what happened last year. Was important to have a win under our belt. There's no point in panicking. You got to leave it to the bowlers. Few good decisions by Stoinis and then Moeen in the end. They both showed composure and that's what you expect from our teams mates.
