2.1

Morris to Rahane, no run, back of a length the start off with, but he does not make the mistake of being wide. A little inward movement and Rahane to steer to point

2.2

Morris to Rahane, 1 no ball, oh, he's overstepped. Shortish in length and he was looking to work it into the leg side, but could only manage a thick outside edge as the ball bobs away to the off side

2.2

Morris to Rahane, no run, Free Hit ball and Rahane opens up his front leg the slam it over the top of cover but the full length ball just outside off beats him by a distance

2.3

Morris to Rahane, 1 run, quick single. Uses soft hands to dab this fullish length ball on off stump to mid-off and sets off

2.4

Morris to Dravid, 1 wide, and now he bowls down leg side and if Dravid cannot get his flick shot to connect, you know it is a wide

2.4

Morris to Dravid, OUT, full and straight and gone! His stumps are in disarray and Morris has worked. Dravid was looking to play all around that ball, looking to clip it on the leg side when he should have been playing straight. He misses, the ball hits the pads and deflects onto the stumps

R Dravid b Morris 5 (11m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

2.5

Morris to Cooper, no run, and he gets forward and presents a very straight bat as Morris bowls back of a length on off stump

2.6

Morris to Cooper, no run, a little more effort in that as this one rises just below chest high and Cooper has to negotiate it with one leg off the ground as he looked to pull it. Wasn't much conviction in the shot as the ball wanders away in the region of square leg

Rajasthan Royals 14/1   CH Morris 1-0-3-1
4.1

Morris to Rahane, 1 wide, here's some fire from Morris. 143kph short ball, well directed. But it flies over Samson's head as he tries to hook which means the Umpire will call it a wide

4.1

Morris to Rahane, 1 run, this one is on a good length around off stump and the batsman dabs it to third man

4.2

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

4.3

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

4.4

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

4.5

Morris to Rahane, no run, good length on off stump and it is pushed into the covers off the front foot

4.6

Morris to Rahane, 1 run, and he steers this length ball on off stump to third man off the back foot to retain strike

13.1

Morris to Rahane, no run, and he gets a little lift off the back of a length delivery that beats Rahane's drive on the up

13.2

Morris to Rahane, 1 run, off cutting slower ball, bowled short of a length again, and Rahane opens the face of his bat to dab it off to third man

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

13.4

Morris to Rahane, FOUR, fifty for Rahane and its his third in a row. Wayward line as he strays full and on the pads. The batsman only has to get a feather on it to work it away to the left of the man at short-fine leg

13.5

Morris to Rahane, no run, good length ball outside off and Rahane respects it with a block down the pitch

13.6

Morris to Rahane, no run, on a good length on middle and he was looking to work it off to midwicket but doesn't get as good contact as he hoped. Morris went up as if in appeal, but thought better of it. There might have been a little inside edge there

Rajasthan Royals 108/3   CH Morris 3-0-17-1
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

15.2

Morris to Rahane, 1 run, lots of full tosses in this innings. Rahane guides this one square on the off side with an open face to give the new batsman, Brad Hodge the strike

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

15.4

Morris to Rahane, 1 run, slower ball outside off and Rahane gets forward and drives it down to long-off

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

15.6

Morris to Rahane, FOUR, carted over midwicket. Morris goes full and straight, but Rahane placed his back foot across to the off stump to opened up his stance and slams it over midwicket
