The 29th match of DLF – IPL was interrupted by rain and due to this, umpires had decided to reduce the overs to 16 over each. Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and decided to bat first but had a dismal start as they lost Akash Chopra when the team score was 9. Soon Hodge also was out leaving the Knight Riders at 20/2. Captain Ganguly then played some brave shots before he was brilliantly run out and the team score was 46/3. Hussey and Taibu then took the score past 50 and at a team score of 64 at which Hussey also returned to pavilion.Taibu and L.N Shukla also felt soon and the Knight Riders were struggling at 88/6 in 12 overs. Some sloppy fielding and some good hits to the boundary finally took the score of Knight Riders to 129 runs in 16 overs.
Lets see how the bowlers try to restrict the Royal Challengers Batsmen.
