Indian Premier League - 23rd match

Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals

Kings XI Punjab won by 48 runs

0.1

Trivedi to Gilchrist, no run, angled across, left alone, bounces in front of the wicketkeeper

0.2

Trivedi to Gilchrist, no run, and a repeat, left alone again, and bounces in front of the keeper again. And to say that the wicket is all green

0.3

Trivedi to Gilchrist, FOUR, nice punch shot, he seemed to have just defended this length ball, and then it screamed across between cover and extra cover

0.4

Trivedi to Gilchrist, 1 no ball, it's all happening! Bowled off a no-ball! And Gilchrist doesn't know of the no-ball, and is walking back when one RR fielder disturbs the bails and appeals for a run-out. Good try. Good knowledge of cricket rules. Well done Dinesh Yagnik

0.4

Trivedi to Gilchrist, FOUR, and the free hit has got the deserving treatment, the gentle half-tracker has been pulled over midwicket

0.5

Trivedi to Gilchrist, 2 runs, gets the inside half of the bat on a drive, and gets two runs wide of square leg

0.6

Trivedi to Gilchrist, 1 wide, wide outside off, angling away, second extra of the over

0.6

Trivedi to Gilchrist, 1 run, pushed wide of mid-off to retain the strike

Kings XI Punjab 13/0   AC Gilchrist 11* (7b 2x4)

1.1

Tait to Gilchrist, 1 run, bouncer at 150.3ks, nice start, and Gilchrist is late on the pull, which falls short of fine leg

1.3

Tait to Gilchrist, 1 run, full at 149.5ks, Gilly takes a single to mid-on

1.6

Tait to Gilchrist, FOUR, and now Tait's pace is hurting Tait himself. Gilchrist rocks back to a short-of-a-length delivery and punches it wide of mid-off. And my word, does it travel. Looked like a single when it left his bat. Turns out to be a four, beating the mid-off to the fence. The outfield is as quick as Tait

Kings XI Punjab 27/0   AC Gilchrist 17* (10b 3x4)

3.1

Warne to Gilchrist, no run, back of a length, stays back and defends

3.2

Warne to Gilchrist, SIX, and RR continue to bleed! A filthy long hop from Warner, Gilly says thank you very much mate, pulling it into the stands

3.3

Warne to Gilchrist, FOUR, carnage continues... short again, on the pads, flicked between square leg and midwicket

3.4

Warne to Gilchrist, 1 run, mis-fielded this time! gently tapped back to Warne's left, he doesn't collect cleanly, and they steal the single

Kings XI Punjab 63/0   AC Gilchrist 28* (14b 4x4 1x6)

4.1

Watson to Gilchrist, no run, wide and shortish, punched away, but finds extra cover

4.2

Watson to Gilchrist, OUT, finally something goes Rajasthan's way! Gilchrist goes for another powerful hit, doesn't get the elevation and Tait takes the easy catch at mid-on. What relief for rajasthan

AC Gilchrist c Tait b Watson 28 (16b 4x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

Kings XI Punjab 67/1   AC Gilchrist 28 (16b 4x4 1x6)
