Indian Premier League, 2nd match: Deccan Chargers v Rajasthan Royals at Hyderabad (Deccan), Apr 9, 2011
Rajasthan Royals won by 8 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)
9 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Oram to Dhawan, 5 runs, Almost a run out first ball and instead we get overthrows! Oh well. It was pushed to cover point, the batsman wanted it, the non-striker didn't and eventually he gets across. The throw from Menaria is wide and it races away to the boundary


Oram to Dhawan, no run, Shikhar is more compact, gets behind the line of this to deflect to square-leg fielder


Oram to Dhawan, FOUR, Fab shot. It was overpitched delivery, and Shikhar laces it to the right of mid-off. Neatly done.

Deccan Chargers 10/0   S Dhawan 9* (3b 1x4)

Singh to Dhawan, 1 run, full in length around off stump line, driven to cover

Deccan Chargers 20/0   S Dhawan 10* (4b 1x4)

Botha to Dhawan, no run, on the off stump line, defended on the front foot


Botha to Dhawan, 1 run, goes for the sweep, almost slips in the process but makes some contact and will get a single


Botha to Dhawan, 1 run, slower, full and on the middle, swept to short fine-leg for a single. Dravid fumbles with the ball and had he collected cleanly on the first attempt it could have got interesting

Deccan Chargers 23/0   S Dhawan 12* (7b 1x4)

Oram to Dhawan, no run, What an ugly shot! It was a short of length delivery outside off and Shikhar, who likes to pull, went for a flat-batted whack and the ball rolls out to mid-on


Oram to Dhawan, 1 run, Goes for another pull. This was a bouncer and he couldn't keep the ball down. Taylor ran in from the deep and threw in a desperate lunge but couldn't get his palms under it. It just died on him


Oram to Dhawan, 1 run, A slower bouncer, well not quite a bouncer but a shortish delivery, drag-pulled to deep square-leg

Deccan Chargers 30/0   S Dhawan 14* (10b 1x4)

Singh to Dhawan, no run, Slog and a miss. It was a length delivery outside off and Shikhar went for a big slog over mid-on but no wood on leather


Singh to Dhawan, no run, beaten again. This time he tried to push a length delivery towards point but the ball tailed past the edge


Singh to Dhawan, SIX, That's Shikhar we know. Flamboyant pull. He played it off the front foot. Whoosh. The ball sailed over midwicket boundary


Singh to Dhawan, FOUR, Spunky cut. It was a short of length delivery outside off and Shikhar stayed side-on and cut it past backward point


Singh to Dhawan, OUT, Done in by the slower one and by his own adrenalin rush. Shikhar went for the big hit but it was the back-of-hand slower one and he ended up dragging the full delivery from outside off to deep midwicket

S Dhawan c Raut b Singh 24 (15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 160.00

Deccan Chargers 40/1   S Dhawan 24 (15b 2x4 1x6)
