Riding on a classy fifty by new recruit, Manish Pandey b equivalent by the veteran Jacques Kallis, the Kolkata Knight Riders have reached 110 for the loss of one wicket at the end of the 15th over against Mumbai Indians. After losing their captain Gautam Gambhir early in the second over of the innings, they have rode on the steady partnership between Jacques Kallis and Pandey to a position from where they can really go all out in the last five overs.

The two batsmen have stitched a 106-run partnership, as the Mumbai bowlers have managed to keep things quiet in the early part of the innings by maintaining some tight line and length. After the pacers got them off to a good start, Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh continued the good work. But after consuming their time and quite a few overs early in the innings, Pandey and Kallis freed their arms post the 10-over mark, and rightly so, since they still had nine wickets remaining at that point.

Pandey, in particular, has been stupendous with his strokeplay so far, and has been been duly complemented by Kallis. The South African was understably rusty early on, but has lost some of that as the innings has progressed.

Earlier in the day, after Lasith Malinga clean bowled Gambhir in the second over for zero, Kallis was joined by Pandey. The two of them took some time to get going, but then Pandey hit a four and six off consecutive deliveries off Corey Anderson in the fourth over to break some shackles.
