  Rajasthan Royals innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson c Kartik b Rampaul 6 9 9 1 0 66.66
2.2 caught at mid-off! It was another full length delivery on off stump and this time Watson goes straight with his shot, hits it really hard but doesn't get the elevation he would have liked. Murali Kartik times his jump to perfection and plucks it to give RCB the first boost 10/1
View dismissal AM Rahane c Dilshan b Unadkat 14 22 13 2 1 107.69
5.2 he has been done in by an excellent slower ball by Unadkat! Rahane sees length and comes forward to drive, but that was bowled at 118kph and he is too early into his shot, ends up slicing it towards point where Dilshan completes and easy catch 26/2
View dismissal R Dravid* c Rampaul b Kartik 35 52 31 5 0 112.90
14.4 Dravid's scratchy stay in the middle comes to an end as he chips this full delivery straight down to long-on. He scored 35, but was struggling to get his timing going all through the innings. An important innings nonetheless 97/4
View dismissal STR Binny c †Arun Karthik b Vinay Kumar 33 21 20 4 1 165.00
9.5 this is a horrible shot by Binny after looking so good for the last 15 minutes. It was short and widish outside off, Binny decides to play another pull shot. But Vinay had cranked up the pace and the ball was getting bigger on him too, he just manages to get a big top-edge that goes behind the keeper, who takes a good catch running backwards 66/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge c †Arun Karthik b Vinay Kumar 13 23 17 1 0 76.47
15.2 the bowler corrects his mistake immediately by bowling it short of length just outside off. Hodge stays in the crease and tries to steer it to third man, but the ball bounces a touch extra and catches the outside edge en route to the keeper 105/5
View dismissal DH Yagnik c Rampaul b Singh 5 13 4 1 0 125.00
16.6 caught at mid-off! The wickets are falling very very quickly for Royals here and this innings is not going anywhere. Yagnik gets a full ball and he drives it straight to mid-off, who dives forwards and takes a good low catch 110/7
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Rampaul b Singh 3 5 7 0 0 42.85
16.3 caught at long-on! he gets a full delivery and tries to launch it over long-on, but he doesn't get any the intended elevation in that, straight down the throat of the fielder down the ground 108/6
A Chandila not out 4 15 6 0 0 66.66
View dismissal S Sreesanth lbw b Vinay Kumar 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
17.4 the procession continues. It's a good delivery by Vinay who fires it full and on middle stump. Sreesanth misses and it hits him right around his boot, plumb in front 111/8
View dismissal SW Tait b Singh 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
18.1 the offstump is sent cartwheeling, but it was not such a great delivery, a mere high full-toss. Tait had moves outside leg and doesn't manage to get anything on it. Talk about hand-eye coordination, and that was a bad example 112/9
View dismissal SK Trivedi c Singh b Rampaul 3 6 6 0 0 50.00
19.4 he was making room again, but this time he gets a short delivery to which he presents an sky-facing blade. The ball ramps off the face off the bat and settles in the hands of RP at third man 117/10

View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Yagnik b Watson 25 23 22 5 0 113.63
6.4 he gets a wicket in his first over this year! It was a short of length delivery outside off, Dilshan tries to push it towards off with an open face but gets a thick outside edge that the keeper takes low to his right 53/1
CH Gayle not out 49 80 44 4 1 111.36
View dismissal V Kohli* b Faulkner 1 4 4 0 0 25.00
7.4 oh he has struck the big wicket! It was the back of the hand slower delivery to which Kohli comes forward to play, it was almost a left-hander's leg-cutter, and it does cut in to the batsman, takes the inside edge and hits the stumps 57/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Chandila b Watson 7 6 8 1 0 87.50
8.6 oh that's a good catch at mid-off by Chandila! He didn't get the big wicket with the ball, but he takes an excellent low catch diving to his left at mid-off. AB charged down to a length delivery and absolutely smashed it as he went inside out, but he ends up playing it a lot straighter then he would have wanted. A second wicket for Watson 64/3
