Morris to Samson, no run, he keeps it on the stumps and the batsman comes forward and across into the off side to work it fine of the midwicket fielder, but finds the man


Morris to Samson, FOUR, lovely straight drive. Morris goes full and straight, but Samson replies with a lovely straight bat and goes through with the shot as the ball races off down the ground


Morris to Samson, 1 run, that one wasn't timed anywhere near as well as Morris goes back to a shortish length. He was hoping the guide the ball square on the off side, but the ball takes an inside edge and went toward midwicket. Rahane calls through for a single

Rajasthan Royals 36/2   SV Samson 5* (3b 1x4)

Holder to Samson, no run, length ball just outside off, he goes for a big strike, but this one ducks beneath the arc of the bat as Holder bowls this a little slower


Holder to Samson, 1 run, looks to pick this one rising up above his hips and the ball goes uppishly wide of the fielder at midwicket as the batsmen take a single

Sharma to Samson, 1 run, and he's met with a little chip down the track as the back of a length ball is pushed down to long-on

Rajasthan Royals 44/2   SV Samson 7* (6b 1x4)

Jadeja to Samson, 1 run, chips down the track and gets to the pitch of the ball, which is angled in at middle, to loft it down the ground


Jadeja to Samson, 1 run, makes a little room for himself and shovels the full length ball over to deep cover off his front foot

Rajasthan Royals 53/2   SV Samson 9* (8b 1x4)

Holder to Samson, 2 runs, full and homing in on middle, but Samson stays balanced at the crease and punches it to midwicket who gets a hand to it and makes the save. Lovely timing there


Holder to Samson, OUT, 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

SV Samson c Ashwin b Holder 11 (21m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Rajasthan Royals 62/3   SV Samson 11 (10b 1x4)
