9.2

Jadeja to Watson, no run, holds the length back but watson has no trouble cutting this to point

9.3

Jadeja to Watson, FOUR, spanking straight drive. Jadeja stuck his hand out, but if he would be thanking his luck he couldn't get a hand to that. Full with only a little bit of room and Watson unfurled a furious strike down the ground

9.4

Jadeja to Watson, 1 run, goes back in his crease and cuts the flatter, quicket ball to deep point

9.6

Jadeja to Watson, 1 run, goes right back again as Jadeja drops it short and hits the ball through point

Rajasthan Royals 71/3   SR Watson 6* (5b 1x4)
10.1

Bravo to Watson, 1 run, and its a leading edge from Watson this time. No danger as the length ball pitched just outside off flies through to third man

10.3

Bravo to Watson, 1 run, and he pitches it right up at Watson's legs, who nearly falls over his stroke as he flicks the ball to deep midwicket

10.5

Bravo to Watson, 2 runs, this time it was a low full toss on the pads, and Watson finds it quite easy to nudge it wide of the man at midwicket - Ashwin - who is a little lazy and deep midwicket collects it

10.6

Bravo to Watson, 1 run, fuller length again, this one outside off and the batsman gets forward and pushes it down to long-off

Rajasthan Royals 78/3   SR Watson 11* (9b 1x4)
11.1

Ashwin to Watson, 1 wide, but he starts off with one that is on a good length but goes down the leg side and is called a wide

11.1

Ashwin to Watson, no run, that was the leggie from Ashwin and Watson goes back and across and defends

11.2

Ashwin to Watson, 1 run, ricochets off Rahane's bat as Watson slams a full toss on middle down the ground. Long-on cleans up

11.6

Ashwin to Watson, 1 wide, this one is right up there, but a little too wide of off stump to get away with

11.6

Ashwin to Watson, 1 wide, same ploy and same decision as Watson flails trying to reach that with a front foot drive. Dhoni, who blocks it with his legs, and Ashwin suggest Watson hit it, but the umpire is having none of it

11.6

Ashwin to Watson, 1 run, fuller length again and Watson drills it off his front foot to long-on

Rajasthan Royals 94/3   SR Watson 13* (12b 1x4)
12.1

Bravo to Watson, 1 run, trademark straight drive from Watson again as he negotiates this full length ball off to long-on

12.3

Bravo to Watson, 1 run, Bravo is obsessed with not affording the batsman room, as he keeps it full and on the pads and is picked away to deep square leg

12.5

Bravo to Watson, no run, angled across the batsman, who goes for an expansive drive off the front foot, but is beaten

12.6

Bravo to Watson, FOUR, slammed straight of midwicket. That was a tad slower from Bravo, but full and on the pads again, and having played so many of those kind of balls, Watson punches this strongly off his front foot

Rajasthan Royals 102/3   SR Watson 19* (16b 2x4)
13.3

Morris to Watson, 1 run, soft hands from Watson enables an easy single. Shortish from Morris and he waits for it to come to him before dropping it off fine on the off side

Rajasthan Royals 104/3   SR Watson 20* (17b 2x4)
14.1

Holder to Watson, 2 runs, fullish on middle as he angles it onto leg stump. Watson plants his front foot down the crease and whips it off to deep midwicket, who cannot prevent the double

14.2

Holder to Watson, FOUR, Overpitched and dismissed. He strode forward and slammed this one to the right of the bowler and it rockets off to the boundary much to long-off's chagrin

14.3

Holder to Watson, 1 run, loads slower this time and its the short one as well. Watson waited for that and pulls it toward wide mid-on

14.5

Holder to Watson, FOUR, and that was another full toss as Holder's search for yorkers continues. Watson is enjoying this though as he flicks it off his front foot wide of fine leg. Morris runs around and pulls out a full length dive, but cannot pull it back

14.6

Holder to Watson, 1 run, overpitched on middle again but this time Watson's clip off the front foot finds deep midwicket

Rajasthan Royals 121/3   SR Watson 32* (22b 4x4)
15.1

Morris to Watson, OUT, 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

SR Watson c Holder b Morris 32 (27m 23b 4x4 0x6) SR: 139.13

Rajasthan Royals 121/4   SR Watson 32 (23b 4x4)
