Jun 1, 2014

 

Umesh Yadav bowled the fourth over for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their match against the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Umesh started off with a couple of dot balls to Virender Sehwag before he took a couple. Sehwag was dismissed off the fourth ball of the over, as he tried to pull and got a top edge which was caught by Gautam Gambhir. Manan Vohra faced the final two balls of the over.

 

Morne Morkel came in to bowl the third over of the innings. After bowling a dot ball to start with, Manan clipped one off his pads for a four through midwicket. Morkel came back well to bowl two dot balls in a row, before Manan took another couple. The final delivery was another dot from Morkel.

 

Earlier, Kings XI Punjab were off to a steady start in the IPL 2014 final against Kolkata Knight Riders at Bangalore. In two overs, Punjab were 15 for no loss. Virender Sehwag and Manan Vohra were batting.

 

Morne Morkel opened the bowling for Kolkata and Sehwag was hit on the pads first up and they took a single. Vohra then played very well and nudged his way to a few runs through the leg-side. But then, Vohra edged one and it went fine for a four through third-man. The slip was in place but it went quite wide from him. In the first over Punjab were eight for no loss.

 

Umesh Yadav came in and bowled one outside off to Sehwag first up. But, Sehwag missed. The second ball was driven by him down the ground, but for no runs. Yadav then bowled a good short ball to keep Sehwag back. Sehwag then edged one to third-man for a single to get off the mark. Later in the over, he smashed a four down the ground for a four.

 

Earlier, Kolkata won the toss and chose to bowl first on what looks like a very good batting track at Bangalore. Kolkata played an unchanged side for this contest. Punjab made one change as Lakshmipathy Balaji came in place of Sandeep Sharma.
