Akshar Patel the young left arm spinner doing his best on keeping the pressure on the Kolkata batsmen. Robin Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan are looking to steady the innings and hoping they can chase the target down after their team lost early wickets.

Kolkata had reached 43 for three after 10 overs which is the lowest in this years tournament.
Lakshmipathy Balaji is continuing with his good run claiming the main wicket of Jacques Kallis. He hit the ball direct to the point fielder. Gautam Gambhir the captain of the side opened his account in the tournament but got out after only a scoring one run.
Punjab are keeping the pressure well on the batsmen and are hoping they can keep their winning streak intact. With a target of only 133, it is going to be a tough task for Kolkata to chase the target on this wicket which has seen wickets tumbling all day long.
