Champions League Twenty20 - 1st semi final

Rajasthan Royals v Chennai Super Kings

Rajasthan Royals won by 14 runs

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

10.2

Bravo to Rahane, 1 run, he uses the shortish length to guide it off the open face of the bat 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

10.4

Bravo to Rahane, 1 run, just a little too straight there from Bravo and his good length ball is clipped to fine leg

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   DJ Bravo 1-0-7-0

12.1

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

12.2

Bravo to Rahane, 1 run, this was off line and off length as the ball doesn't pitch and is clipped off his hips for a single

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

12.4

Bravo to Rahane, 1 run, the straight bat is used this time as the length is once again full and long-on is really earning his wages today

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   DJ Bravo 2-0-15-0

17.1

Bravo to Rahane, 2 runs, yorker on leg stump and its dabbed into the vacant midwicket region. The batsmen realise that and scamper off for a second before the deep fielder can come in and collect

17.2

Bravo to Rahane, 1 run, another one right at the block hole and this time Rahane can only dig it out toward square leg, but the batsman still sneak a single

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

17.5

Bravo to Rahane, 1 run, yorker on off stump by Bravo and Rahane is up to it, watching it all the way onto his bat and nudge it straight of the man at cover

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   DJ Bravo 3-0-22-0

19.1

Bravo to Rahane, OUT, 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

AM Rahane c Sharma b Bravo 70 (87m 56b 6x4 2x6) SR: 125.00

19.2

Bravo to Binny, 1 run, Another on on the toes of the batsman but binny manages to hit this one down to fine leg to get the new man Dishant Yagnik on strike

19.3

Bravo to Yagnik, 1 wide, wonderful change of pace from Bravo. Yagnik tried to wait for it and pick it off his pads, but the angle from around the wicket takes the ball down the leg side. Binny is looking for a bye, but Dhoni grabs the ball and underarms it back to the bowler to stop any such thing

19.3

Bravo to Yagnik, OUT, 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

DH Yagnik c Holder b Bravo 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

19.4

Bravo to Binny, OUT, 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

STR Binny c Jadeja b Bravo 5 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

19.5

Bravo to Faulkner, 1 run, oh and he almost got the hat-trick. Excellent yorker as Faulkner, the new man, jams his bat down, gets a thick inside edge which ricochets off his pad toward point

19.6

Bravo to Shukla, 1 run, brilliant finish from Bravo. Another one right up there and Shukla can only dig it out to midwicket and take a single

Rajasthan Royals 159/8   DJ Bravo 4-0-26-3
