Indian Premier League - 23rd match

Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals

Kings XI Punjab won by 48 runs

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   PC Valthaty 33* (13b 4x4 2x6)   SR Watson 0.2-0-0-1

9.4

Warne to Valthaty, OUT, the have broken the code! They have dismissed Valthaty! No. 50 in IPL for Warner. And what revs on this one. Valthaty comes down the track looking for another six, but the dip leaves him ever so short of the pitch of the ball, and he hits this off the lower part of the bat. Tait collects the mis-hit at long-off

PC Valthaty c Tait b Warne 46 (31b 4x4 3x6) SR: 148.38

Kings XI Punjab 105/2   SE Marsh 21* (14b 3x4)   SK Warne 2.4-0-28-1

15.6

Tait to Karthik, OUT, Tait finally gets a deserved wicket... it's shortish but not wide, and it's fast and bounces more than expected. The edge is taken by the keeper, and then the umpire's finger comes up ever so slowly as Karthik starts to walk and then stops

KD Karthik c †Yagnik b Tait 21 (16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 131.25

Kings XI Punjab 175/3   SE Marsh 66* (36b 6x4 3x6)   SW Tait 3-1-18-1

16.5

Watson to Nayar, OUT, Nayar is gone. He looked to drop and run, and then stopped. Then he saw Marsh charging at him and realised it would be criminal to turn his back at Marsh, and went for the single anyway. That stutter, though, cost him his wicket

AM Nayar run out 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Kings XI Punjab 178/4   SE Marsh 68* (38b 6x4 3x6)   SR Watson 2.5-0-17-1

18.1

Watson to Marsh, OUT, and that frustration shows as Marsh gets a top edge on this pull off the front foot. Watson calls for it, and takes it without trouble. Rajasthan are back momentarily

SE Marsh c & b Watson 71 (42b 6x4 3x6) SR: 169.04

Kings XI Punjab 183/5   R McLaren 0* (4b)   SR Watson 3.1-0-17-2

19.1

Tait to McLaren, OUT, and he gets another wicket, not with the best ball he has bowled, though. This was short, and gentle in pace when compared to Tait's usual pace, but McLaren pulls it straight down deep midwicket's lap

R McLaren c Raut b Tait 2 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Kings XI Punjab 190/6   Sunny Singh 5* (3b 1x4)   SW Tait 3.1-1-18-2

19.6

Tait to Chawla, OUT, finishes it off with a full delivery, the off stump goes towards the keeper. Chawla makes room, and misses, and the poor off stump...

PP Chawla b Tait 4 (3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Kings XI Punjab 195/7   Sunny Singh 5* (5b 1x4)   SW Tait 4-1-22-3
