Champions League Twenty20 - 9th match, Group A

Lions v Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals won by 30 runs

3.3

Watson to de Kock, OUT, another leading edge, and this time he has picked out cover-point. Looks to work this square on the leg side, and has turned the face closed too early. Easy catch for Menaria

Q de Kock c Menaria b Watson 18 (15m 10b 2x4 1x6) SR: 180.00

Lions 25/1   HE van der Dussen 4* (11b)   SR Watson 0.3-0-3-1

4.5

Malik to van der Dussen, OUT, another one goes. Malik has been charged at twice, but here he comes back with a slower ball, and van der Dussen is too early into it after walking down the wicket. Dravid goes back from mid-on to take the catch

HE van der Dussen c Dravid b Malik 14 (20m 16b 1x4 1x6) SR: 87.50

Lions 36/2   T Bavuma 0* (3b)   VS Malik 2.5-0-26-1

4.6

Malik to Bavuma, OUT, Malik will on a hat-trick when he bowls his last over. A poor shot. Bavuma pays for his cement feet. For the fourth time in his brief stay he goes after a widish delivery without trying to get closer to the line of it. Drives at a wide length ball away from the body, and edges it through to Samson

T Bavuma c †Samson b Malik 0 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Lions 36/3   GC Viljoen 0* (0b)   VS Malik 3-0-26-2

11.3

Tambe to Viljoen, OUT, Tambe strikes! This one was slightly slower and aimed at the stumps, Viljoen made room again and with the same result - a miss and the ball crashes into leg stump

GC Viljoen b Tambe 24 (30m 21b 0x4 2x6) SR: 114.28

Lions 89/4   AN Petersen 23* (18b 2x4)   PV Tambe 0.3-0-1-1

13.1

Tambe to Symes, OUT, Tambe strikes again, Lions have lost another! It was full outside off and Symes chipped it in the air straight to Stuart Binny at cover, easy catch

J Symes c Binny b Tambe 3 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Lions 101/5   AN Petersen 32* (23b 3x4)   PV Tambe 1.1-0-5-2

13.3

Tambe to Sohail Tanvir, OUT, that's plumb! It was pitched up as Tanvir tries to slog-sweep it on the leg side and missed it by a mile, it would have crashed into the stumps, not a tough one for the umpire

Sohail Tanvir lbw b Tambe 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Lions 101/6   AN Petersen 32* (23b 3x4)   PV Tambe 1.3-0-5-3

15.1

Tambe to Petersen, OUT, Tambe on fire! He's gonna finish it here, he's got the captain. It was a flattish legspinner aimed at the off stump, Petersen slogged on the leg side and missed and Tambe struck timber

AN Petersen b Tambe 40 (43m 28b 4x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Lions 120/7   TL Tsolekile 11* (5b 2x4)   PV Tambe 2.1-0-11-4

17.3

Faulkner to Tsolekile, OUT, yorker always works! It was swung in late as Tsolekile swung his bat and missed, the ball hit his pads and crashed into the stumps. Royals need two more to win

TL Tsolekile b Faulkner 21 (14m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Lions 137/8   D Pretorius 7* (5b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 2.3-0-16-1

19.5

Faulkner to Pretorius, OUT, taken at long-off, it was a low full toss outside off, and Pretorious holed out to Brad Hodge in the deep

D Pretorius c Hodge b Faulkner 19 (18m 14b 1x4 1x6) SR: 135.71

Lions 152/9   AM Phangiso 3* (5b)   JP Faulkner 3.5-0-21-2
