  Rajasthan Royals innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal R Dravid* b Morris 5 11 8 1 0 62.50
2.4 full and straight and gone! His stumps are in disarray and Morris has worked. Dravid was looking to play all around that ball, looking to clip it on the leg side when he should have been playing straight. He misses, the ball hits the pads and deflects onto the stumps 14/1
View dismissal AM Rahane c Sharma b Bravo 70 87 56 6 2 125.00
19.1 Bravo misses his yorker, but this time he won't be too troubled. Rahane, after moving toward the off side, tries to shovel it over the leg side the ball takes a thick top edge and is held safely at fine leg 155/6
View dismissal KK Cooper c Badrinath b Sharma 14 6 7 2 1 200.00
3.6 but now he's gone! May have been a little slower because Cooper had to adjust mid-stroke. As with the previous balls, he had moved outside leg and wanted to loft this over the off side field, but this time he hits it straight to the man at extra 29/2
View dismissal SV Samson c Ashwin b Holder 11 21 10 1 0 110.00
8.4 It was short of a length and Samson looked to swipe this down the ground, but the ball got big on him. The ball takes the top edge and balloons high into the air where Ashwin at midwicket comes around and takes a simple catch. The umpires were concerned if the ball had hit the wires of the spider cam, but all is well 62/3
View dismissal SR Watson c Holder b Morris 32 27 23 4 0 139.13
15.1 fullish which tempts Watson into a big blow, possibly over the leg side. But this time Watson gets a thick edge and the ball flies high in the air towards cover. Holder rushes in from the boundary, settles underneath it and pouches it safely 121/4
View dismissal BJ Hodge b Holder 11 13 9 1 0 122.22
18.1 and just like Morris he starts it with a wicket. Hodge's stumps are knocked back. Not quite the Bravo yorker, but it was full enough. Hodge looked to clear his front leg and lift it over cow corner but to no avail 149/5
View dismissal STR Binny c Jadeja b Bravo 5 8 5 0 0 100.00
19.4 another one bites the dust. And its to a full toss again. It should have been carted over the boundary, but Binny doesn't get it off the middle. It went off the bottom of the bat and Jadeja comes in from long-on and collects it easily 157/8
View dismissal DH Yagnik c Holder b Bravo 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.3 holed out in the deep. This was short and angled down the leg side. Yagnik goes for the hook but he doesn't keep it down. There was a man in the deep at midwicket, Holder, and he makes no mistak 157/7

View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (Cooper/†Yagnik) 9 12 11 1 0 81.81
2.5 from Watson, the running has not been anywhere near solid and it becomes the reason for the first wicket. Hussey hits the length ball down the ground and rushes for a single, but Vijay is not interested and after being more than half way down the track, there was no hope as the man from mid-on lobs the throw in to the keeper 13/1
View dismissal M Vijay run out (Samson) 14 27 16 2 0 87.50
5.4 from Cooper, he;s threatened to do it all innings and finally he does it. Sanju Samson hits the target and Vijay is on his way. Vijay pushes this into extra cover and sets off. Raina hesitated midway since the ball was hit strongly and it was very close to the fielder, but seeing Vijay charge down he continued but Vijay still could not make it 33/2
View dismissal SK Raina c sub (AL Menaria) b Tambe 29 46 23 4 0 126.08
12.3 straight up in the air and another one goes down. This was outside off and Raina's front stride did not come toward the ball. In the end he only manages to get the bottom of the bat as he looked to flay it over the top of cover. The man comes in from mid-off and takes a straight forward catch 72/7
View dismissal S Badrinath st †Yagnik b Tambe 8 10 10 1 0 80.00
8.1 and Tambe strikes! Badri rushes down the pitch, but the bowler hasn't used enough flight to merit that decision. He looks to flay it over the top of cover, but the ball beats him and the keeper doesn't collect it cleanly, but the ball ricochets off his pad and onto the wickets 51/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† lbw b Shukla 3 4 7 0 0 42.85
9.2 oh, ho, ho... Shukla does it again! This one was on a good length and seamed away. It was at a pretty nippy pace too as Dhoni was squared up while looking to play the angle into the leg side. But he's struck on the back pad and the Umpire raises the finger 54/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo lbw b Tambe 3 5 5 0 0 60.00
10.4 another leg before! Early birthday present for Tambe as Bravo shuffles across and looks to turn this full length ball on middle into the leg side. But with the spinner skidding the ball more than spinning it, it was going to be dangerous and it was. Plumb in front 61/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja c †Yagnik b Watson 2 7 4 0 0 50.00
11.6 And the extra ball helps the bowler this time. It was short but there was no room for the cut shot that he was looking to play. The edge is taken and Yagnik secures a simple catch. Super Kings are floundering here 70/6
CH Morris not out 26 37 17 3 0 152.94
View dismissal R Ashwin c Binny b Faulkner 46 35 28 3 3 164.28
19.4 Another full length ball and Ashwin does what he has been doing all innings, plants his front foot outside leg and muscles over the leg side. But this time his power is not enough as Stuart Binnny comes in from long-on and holds on amid tense circumstances 145/8
