It wasn't spin that derailed the chase, though - Albie picked up Hodge for a second-ball duck and Gony and Balaji made further inroads to have KKR choking at 46/4. Kemp came on and picked up three more wickets, just like that. Muralitharan and Ashwin picked up bits of the tail to round up a very one-sided second innings.
The batting card looks horrendous, the highest scores being Saha's quick 22 and Kartik's 21 at the end. Tiwary got two boundaries in two balls and got out looking for a third. Ganguly looked extremely comfortable out there... NOT. As the number three, if he isn't going to get in form his captaincy will be quite redundant. Shah and Matthews were unable to replicate their innings from a couple of matches ago and Shukla played well in the short time he was there. Rohan Gavaskar should never have been playing in place of Pujara.
In all probability Gayle will be playing the next match, the only question being whom he replaces - the highest run-getter for KKR and, oh, in all T20 cricket, or Owais Shah, hero from the other day. Tough choice indeed.
