4 October 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Holder to Rahane, no run, he hits a goodish length, targeting the top of off and Rahane keeps it out


Holder to Rahane, no run, goes a little shorter, but there is only enough room to dab the ball to point off the back foot


Holder to Rahane, FOUR, flat batted over the top of mid-on. Chips down the track and only looked to beat the fielder inside the circle and once that was done the ball was going only one way


Holder to Rahane, 1 run, turned off his hips as the good length ball on middle goes down to fine leg


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

Rajasthan Royals 43/2   JO Holder 1-0-6-0

Holder to Rahane, FOUR, more use of the feet and more profit for the batsman. It was back of a length and having gone down beside the ball, he had the room to hit it well over extra cover


Holder to Rahane, 1 wide, and he bowls a bouncer, but gets the line wrong as it goes over Rahane's gloves down the leg side as he tries to hook


Holder to Rahane, 1 run, short and at the body again, but Rahane swivels on one leg and dabs it into the leg side for a single


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


Holder to Rahane, no run, gets right behind that one and blocks it down the pitch as Holder keeps it on a good length on off stump


Holder to Rahane, 2 runs, full on leg and its clipped through midwicket smartly

Rajasthan Royals 64/3   JO Holder 2-0-16-1

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


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


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


Holder to Rahane, 1 run, full toss on off stump and Rahane drives it into the off side and takes off for a single


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


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   JO Holder 3-0-29-1

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


Holder to Binny, 1 run, and he gets a full toss on the pads, which is helped along on its way off the back foot to deep square leg


Holder to Rahane, 1 run, now there's the yorker. But Rahane manages to dig it out and make good enough contact to guide it to cover to rush off for a single


Holder to Binny, 1 run, thick inside edge runs away to fine leg as Holder manages another pin-point yorker


Holder to Rahane, 1 run, Another one pitced right up and he stays inside the line of the ball and steers it to sweeper cover


Holder to Binny, 2 runs, just misses his length, but it is still full enough to make Binny mistime his mow to midwicket. The ball goes off the inside half of the bat to wide long-on instead

Rajasthan Royals 155/5   JO Holder 4-0-35-2
