Champions League Twenty20 - 1st semi final

Rajasthan Royals v Chennai Super Kings

Rajasthan Royals won by 14 runs

1.1

Sharma to Dravid, FOUR, cut crisply between point and cover. Short and wide outside off, Dravid got on top of the bounce, rolled his wrists and slammed the ball to the point boundary

Rajasthan Royals 11/0   R Dravid 5* (2b 1x4)   MM Sharma 0.1-0-4-0

3.4

Sharma to Cooper, FOUR, oh, that was murdered. He has corrected in length but not in line and Cooper made a little room for himself as he flayed this through point.

Rajasthan Royals 25/1   KK Cooper 10* (5b 1x4 1x6)   MM Sharma 1.4-0-15-0

3.5

Sharma to Cooper, FOUR, consecutive fours. Mohit must have picked up Jadeja's shoes before play today. This was right up there, but Cooper again pulled his front foot back from the line of the ball and drills this through extra cover

Rajasthan Royals 29/1   KK Cooper 14* (6b 2x4 1x6)   MM Sharma 1.5-0-19-0

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

Rajasthan Royals 35/2   SV Samson 4* (2b 1x4)   CH Morris 1.3-0-9-1

5.3

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

Rajasthan Royals 41/2   AM Rahane 14* (16b 1x4 1x6)   JO Holder 0.3-0-4-0

8.1

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

Rajasthan Royals 58/2   AM Rahane 27* (27b 2x4 1x6)   JO Holder 1.1-0-10-0

9.3

Jadeja to Watson, FOUR, spanking straight drive. Jadeja stuck his hand out, but if he would be thanking his luck he couldn't get a hand to that. Full with only a little bit of room and Watson unfurled a furious strike down the ground

Rajasthan Royals 68/3   SR Watson 4* (3b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 2.3-0-16-0

11.4

Ashwin to Rahane, FOUR, and this one pierces the gap between point and cover. Timing and placement takes it past the diving fielder and all the way to the boundary

Rajasthan Royals 90/3   AM Rahane 43* (35b 3x4 2x6)   R Ashwin 0.4-0-12-0

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   SR Watson 19* (16b 2x4)   DJ Bravo 2-0-15-0

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

Rajasthan Royals 108/3   AM Rahane 51* (41b 4x4 2x6)   CH Morris 2.4-0-17-1

14.2

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

Rajasthan Royals 114/3   SR Watson 26* (19b 3x4)   JO Holder 2.2-0-22-1

14.5

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

Rajasthan Royals 120/3   SR Watson 31* (21b 4x4)   JO Holder 2.5-0-28-1

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

Rajasthan Royals 129/4   AM Rahane 58* (47b 5x4 2x6)   CH Morris 4-0-25-2

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

Rajasthan Royals 135/4   BJ Hodge 7* (4b 1x4)   MM Sharma 3.3-0-31-1

16.5

Sharma to Rahane, FOUR, goes across to the off side and looks for the sweep. Mohit bowls it slower and even if it was on middle, Rahane manouevres it to the left of the man at fine leg and collects another boundary

Rajasthan Royals 140/4   AM Rahane 63* (49b 6x4 2x6)   MM Sharma 3.5-0-36-1
