Champions League Twenty20 - 1st semi final

Rajasthan Royals v Chennai Super Kings

Rajasthan Royals won by 14 runs

15.3

Morris to Hodge, 1 run, keeps it in that corridor outside off and Hodge stays in his crease and chops it down to third man

15.5

Morris to Hodge, 1 run, bouncer, homing on on Hodge's head, but he negotiates it with ease. Shifting his weight onto his back foot, rolling his wrists on impact and hooking it down to deep midwicket

Rajasthan Royals 125/4   BJ Hodge 2* (2b)

16.1

Sharma to Hodge, 1 run, he dabs the good length ball on off stump square on the off side and he takes a quick single

16.3

Sharma to Hodge, FOUR, full toss and and it is dispatched. Hodge planted his front foot outside leg to get a full swing of the bat as he pummels this through mid-off

16.4

Sharma to Hodge, 1 run, this one doesnt pitch either as Hodge sets himself up to slam it over the top straight down the ground. But this came at him a little higher so his timing was off. And maybe his bat has sustained some damage as well. Hodge signals to the dressing room as he goes through for the single

Rajasthan Royals 136/4   BJ Hodge 8* (5b 1x4)

17.3

Bravo to Hodge, 2 runs, Bravo has been impressive this over. This one is at the toes of the batsman again, but since he is concentrating on leg stump, Hodge can work this down wide of long-on

17.4

Bravo to Hodge, 1 run, this time he makes room for himself and drives the full length ball to long-off

17.6

Bravo to Hodge, 1 leg bye, squirts off his pads square on the off side as Hodge was looking to whip it through square leg. Again Bravo finds the perfect full length in the deat

Rajasthan Royals 149/4   BJ Hodge 11* (8b 1x4)

18.1

Holder to Hodge, OUT, 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

BJ Hodge b Holder 11 (13m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 122.22

Rajasthan Royals 149/5   BJ Hodge 11 (9b 1x4)
