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   SK Trivedi 1-0-13-0

2.1

Trivedi to Valthaty, SIX, this was a bouncer in slow motion compared to the pace Tait is bowling at, and Valthaty pulls it without any trouble for six

2.2

Trivedi to Valthaty, FOUR, Ooof, what a beautiful shot! Length ball, lofted over mid-on. High elbow. Holds the pose

2.3

Trivedi to Valthaty, SIX, Valthatyyyyyy! Unstoppable. Nothing wrong with the delivery, back of a length, on middle, and he short-arm-pulls it over midwicket for another six. What wrists on this

2.4

Trivedi to Valthaty, no run, slower ball now, respectfully defended. Peace brother

2.5

Trivedi to Valthaty, FOUR, no more peace... slower ball, picks it up early, makes room, and sends it crashing over point

2.6

Trivedi to Valthaty, (no ball) FOUR, another no-ball! And it's a low full toss on the pads too, and he has flicked it wide of square leg to bring up the fastest team fifty in IPL history

2.6

Trivedi to Valthaty, no run, and he slogs at this one, what a shame. The mis-hit goes only as far as square leg

Kings XI Punjab 52/0   SK Trivedi 2-0-38-0

14.1

Trivedi to Karthik, 1 run, steered to third man for a single

14.2

Trivedi to Marsh, 2 runs, short ball, stays low, but he still recovers enough to place it square of short fine leg

14.3

Trivedi to Marsh, 1 run, and he almost took Karthik out here. Hit straight back to Karthik's gut, who does well to get out of the way. And is thus still standing on his own two feet

14.4

Trivedi to Karthik, FOUR, there is no surprise in this slower ball. Karthik is standing deep in the crease, waiting, "Come, come". It finally arrives and is pulled for four

14.5

Trivedi to Karthik, FOUR, regulation pace, regulation result, as he cuts this short and wide delivery square of point and fine of third man

14.6

Trivedi to Karthik, FOUR, this is getting ridiculous now! Karthik is down on a knee expecting another slower ball, and scoops it over short fine

Kings XI Punjab 169/2   SK Trivedi 3-0-54-0

17.1

Trivedi to McLaren, 2 wides, and nightmare it is, as he bowls a big wide down the leg side, too wide for Yagnik to collect it cleanly

17.1

Trivedi to Marsh, 2 runs, clipped away off the pads, and he hares back for two to keep the strike

17.2

Trivedi to Marsh, 1 run, slower ball, driven down to long-off for one

17.3

Trivedi to McLaren, no run, slower bouncer, and McLaren ducks under it

17.4

Trivedi to McLaren, no run, another slower bouncer, and McLaren misses again, these are three superb overs

17.5

Trivedi to McLaren, no run, another bouncer, and Asnani calls it one for the over, although I can bet my house the previous bouncer was over shoulder too, and this should have been a no-ball. Good on Sid Trivedi, though, to realise that one for the over had not been called and then going for another bouncer

17.6

Trivedi to McLaren, no run, angled across, and that beats the attempted scoop. Superb comeback from Trivedi, which means he is only tied with RP Singh for the worst figures in all IPLs, and doesn't exclusively own the dubious distinction

Kings XI Punjab 183/4   SK Trivedi 4-0-59-0
