View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Jadeja b Watson 2 9 0 0 22.22
2.2 caught! This time Chanders tries to pull the ball against the angle across him, it was a trifle short and this time the top edge flies high and straight to Jadeja once again at third man, he tales another well-judged catch 16/2
View dismissal R Dravid* c Jadeja b Watson 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.2 caught! Dravid falls first ball! Watson bangs it in short, it didn't rise much and Dravid went for the pull, he didn't control it well and hit it high in the air towards long leg, Jadeja was position on the boundary line and took a well judged catch 1/1
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Smith b Patel 44 20 6 3 220.00
7.2 caught on the pull! Taylor moves towards the off side and tries to pull a short ball, he's hit it firmly but again there's no elevation and Smith takes a flat catch on the deep square leg boundary, Rajasthan are right back in this 65/4
View dismissal JH Kallis c Patel b Trivedi 11 10 2 0 110.00
6.3 caught! The length wasn't short enough to play a pull but Kallis managed to make good contact, however he didn't get any elevation and placed it straight down Munaf's throat at long leg, that was a flat catch and it was well taken, Rajasthan have made a vital breakthrough 59/3
View dismissal V Kohli c †Rawat b Patel 13 14 0 1 92.85
9.4 caught! Virat backs away to a good length ball over off and middle stump and tries to cut through the off side, rather a rash shot that, he gets beaten by the extra bounce and feathers a nick through to Rawat 77/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c †Rawat b Warne 4 10 0 0 40.00
11.4 caught! Warne bowls the googly and Boucher tries to drive it through the off side, he gets beaten by the turn into him and gets a thick inside edge that hits Rawat on the pads and lobs up on the leg side, Rawat is alert to the situation and scampers across to catch the rebound 78/6
View dismissal P Kumar run out (†Rawat/Watson) 34 30 2 3 113.33
19.2 from Watson, run out! Watson bangs in the bouncer in, Praveen tries to upper cut it but misses, Zaheer tries to run the bye, Rawat tries to run out Zaheer at the batsman's end but misses, the ball goes to Watson who collects and underarms the ball towards the bowler's end and the direct hit finds Praveen well short, I wonder if Praveen is injured for he was running very slowly 131/8
View dismissal SB Joshi run out (Sohail Tanvir/†Rawat) 3 8 0 0 37.50
13.6 from Warne, run out! bowled flat on middle stump, Joshi flicks off his pads to square leg and wants the single, Praveen sends him back, Tanvir throws the ball superbly towards Rawat who breaks the stumps with Joshi inches short, he didn't run back with any urgency whatsoever, the screen initially flashes not out but then changes it to the right decision 90/7

View dismissal GC Smith c Kumble b Joshi 49 42 8 0 116.66
15.6 Smith falls one short of his fifty, he came down the track and chipped Joshi straight to Kumble at long-on, he didn't try to hit it with power and got his placement wrong, he was looking to hit it wider of long on I think 130/3
View dismissal M Rawat c †Boucher b Kumar 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.4 caught! Rawat charged down the track and tried to swing Praveen over the leg side, the ball was on a good length and moved away from the right-hander, the ball grazed the outside edge and went through to Boucher who took an easy catch, Praveen is thrilled and pumped up! 1/1
View dismissal YK Pathan c †Boucher b Khan 21 12 5 0 175.00
3.2 that's gone high in the air and Boucher takes an excellent catch! Zaheer banged it in short, Yusuf lined up to play the pull, he tried to hit it from outside off and got a top edge that flew miles in the air towards a very fine fine leg region, Boucher ran after it and settled perfectly under a swirling catch 26/2
