View dismissal R Dravid* c Faulkner b Harmeet Singh 28 42 24 3 0 116.66
9.3 Dravid tries to slap it over the in-field but it gets only till the sweeper fielder, who moved in to take the catch. 77/1
View dismissal AM Rahane b Faulkner 98 87 66 16 1 148.48
19.3 bowled him! Misses his 100 by a couple of runs there! Slower ball and Rahane tried to go over the top of the extra-cover region, but the change of pace beat him completely and he fails to get any bat to that one. Stumps are castled. 180/4
View dismissal AL Menaria b Chawla 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
10.5 bowled! Menaria, I think has yorked himself and the stumps are lying all scattered on the ground. Chawla is pumped and Rajasthan have lost two wickets in as many overs. 87/2
View dismissal BJ Hodge b Faulkner 21 27 16 1 1 131.25
17.2 bowled him! Slower one, back of the hand stuff, and the batsman tried to play it across the line, but missed it completed and he is bowled. 162/3

View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Cooper b Singh 27 19 18 3 1 150.00
4.1 gone this time, caught in the region between mid-on and mid-off! Slower one from Amit Singh and Gilchrist tried to smack it over the bowler but the timing was too awry for it to carry all the way and Cooper ran from mid-on to hold on to it. 36/1
View dismissal PC Valthaty c Singh b Cooper 13 28 15 2 0 86.66
5.5 gone! yep, he was playing a lot of shots and this time he has only managed to cut it away to the short third-man. Full-toss and he cuts it to the third-man, who scoops it up for himself and catches it on the second attempt. 44/2
View dismissal SE Marsh c Dravid b Cooper 7 14 6 1 0 116.66
7.2 gone! Marsh is gone, beaten by a slower delivery! He was very early into the shot and the flick shot brought about his downfall this time. The ball looped up in the air and Dravid takes a good catch, with hands outstretched! 55/3
View dismissal AM Nayar c †Goswami b Cooper 10 9 10 0 1 100.00
7.6 this is shoddy batting really. Nayar attempted a shot every ball after that wicket of Marsh and he has finally convinced himself into getting out. Top-edges the sweep and is easily caught by the wicket-keeper. 61/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Cooper b Trivedi 13 19 10 1 0 130.00
11.2 this was a shorter one yet again but this time he upped his pace. Hussey probably expected it to be a slower one and seemed late on it and he manages to hit to long-on, where that man Cooper catches it again! 86/5
View dismissal Mandeep Singh b Chavan 34 37 25 5 0 136.00
15.6 slog, beaten and bowled! There was nothing else that the batsman could do at this stage given the mounting required run-rate and once he missed connecting it, the ball was headed only in one direction - towards the stumps. 127/7
View dismissal Bipul Sharma c Rahane b Chavan 18 20 13 2 0 138.46
15.4 swept hard but it only looked like he had done that, the timing went totally awry there and the ball went high, not long. The fielder ran in and took a smart catch there. 123/6
View dismissal PP Chawla b Cooper 10 11 8 0 1 125.00
18.2 slower one and Cooper has bowled Chawla to get his fourth wicket. What an IPL debut for the all-rounder from Trinidad and Tobago! 143/8
JP Faulkner not out 11 18 9 0 0 122.22
View dismissal P Kumar run out (Cooper/†Goswami) 10 6 6 0 1 166.66
19.3 from Singh, driven to long-on and Praveen Kumar wanted another two, but this time the throw is at the striker's end and the keeper removes the bails before the batsman can return back to the crease. 155/9
