View dismissal V Kohli* c Bhatia b Richardson 4 11 9 1 0 44.44
2.3 superb start for the Royals so far, and it has just got better. There have been quite a few dots, and few singles, so Kohli throws his bat at this wide delivery. The ball moves away a touch to take a thick edge that flies all the way to third man 6/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c †Samson b Tambe 19 33 25 3 0 76.00
7.4 Gayle is not reading this wrong'uns, but he is a fair man as this ball shows. Goes to cut, edges the googly, Samson takes a sharp catch, and Gayle walks. Turns out Tucker has his arms raised to call it a wide, but Gayle has walked away. Well played, Chris. Another example of ordinary umpiring this IPL 38/2
View dismissal VH Zol c Watson b Tewatia 16 25 14 3 0 114.28
8.1 Turns out watching the legspinner's hand is out of fashion. Even Zol is not picking the wrong'un even though Tewatia has bowled seven googlies out of seven. Zol reads this off the pitch, which is too late, and he gives slip catching practice as this is pitched short of a length, and turns away to take the edge of a nothing poke 40/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Rahane b Faulkner 58 61 32 1 5 181.25
19.4 full and wide, takes it outside AB's reach, who is looking to stay back and hit, and consequently doesn't get all of this one, and holes out to deep cover 186/5
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh lbw b Richardson 83 52 38 7 7 218.42
18.6 moves across again to open up the leg side but is beaten. Given out leg-before, but I am not sure it wasn't going down with the angle. Yuvraj walks off to a huge applause from the home crowd. What hitting 172/4

View dismissal AM Rahane c †Patel b Chahal 24 34 22 3 0 109.09
7.1 and Chahal is having it too. A wicket first ball. Skiddy legbreak, doesn't bounce much, Rahane goes to cut, gets a bottom edge, and PP latches on 54/1
View dismissal KK Nair b Yuvraj Singh 56 61 39 8 0 143.58
13.3 Yuvraj is on an absolute roll here. One of the best all-round performances of all time in T20 cricket? Nair dances down, misses a straight ball, and has his middle stump pegged back 106/5
View dismissal SR Watson* b Yuvraj Singh 1 5 5 0 0 20.00
8.3 when it is your evening, it is often your night. Yuvraj pulls out a beauty. The arm ball. Watson is caught back to a length ball. It squeezes under the bat, and uproots the leg stump. Is MS Dhoni watching? Yuvraj the bowler has always been here even though the batsman has gone missing from time to time 61/2

8.6 Yuvi has got two wickets in one over. How can this night get any better? Stuart Binny, sent in to pinch-hit, dances down and gets a thick edge to deep cover 63/3

10.6 long hop to make it three for Yuvi. tonight is a good good night for YS. Drags this down, but it stops a touch on him, and Samson is a little casual, and lobs this back to Yuvraj 82/4
