1.1

Watson to Jayawardene, no run, starts with a ball on legstump, worked towards midwicket

1.2

Watson to Jayawardene, 1 run, well outside off, length delivery, Jayawardene plays it late, opens the face to guide the ball towards third man

1.3

Watson to Laxman, no run, a hint of away movement for Watson after the ball pitched on a length outside off

1.4

Watson to Laxman, 1 bye, beaten as he looks to glide the ball through the off side, that kept a touch low from Watson, this is a slow track, one reason why Tait is sidelined

1.5

Watson to Jayawardene, no run, Jayawardene gives the charge, it was a shortish ball from Watson, Jayawardene was nowhere near the pitch, and his attempted slash doesn't connect

1.6

Watson to Jayawardene, no run, length ball outside off, pushed towards mid-off to end the over, good one from Watson

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 11/0   SR Watson 1-0-1-0

3.1

Watson to Jayawardene, no run, swish and a miss outside off, loads of width provided by Watson, but batsman can't connect

3.2

Watson to Jayawardene, FOUR, bu-bye, that was overpitched by Watson just outside off, Jayawardene sledge-hammers that one to the bowler's left for four

3.3

Watson to Jayawardene, OUT, Laxman is gone, run-out by Dravid, Jayawardene can't connect anywhere as well this time to a fullish ball, which dribbles towards backward point, a tight single is called for, never a good thing when Laxman is in the middle, Dravid gets a direct hit that catches Laxman more than a yard short

VVS Laxman run out 8 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

3.4

Watson to Patel, no run, Parthiv's first ball elicits a big appeal for lbw, it jags into the pads, but that was sliding down

3.5

Watson to Patel, 1 run, length ball on middle and leg, whipped behind square leg by Parthiv to get off the mark

3.6

Watson to Jayawardene, 1 run, this one ducks in towards Jayawardene, once more he's not at ease playing it, edged towards the leg side

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 28/1   SR Watson 2-0-7-0

14.1

Watson to Jadeja, 1 run, skates out of the crease and lashes the ball towards mid-off, where the fielder moves across smartly to field

14.2

Watson to Patel, no run, Parthiv looks to whip that after shuffling across, off the pads towards the bowler, Jadeja had scrambled out for a single, has to turn back and a direct hit from Watson would have made it interesting

14.3

Watson to Patel, 1 run, slashed towards sweeper cover for a single

14.4

Watson to Jadeja, FOUR, width on offer for Jadeja, who steadies himself and powerfully crunches it past point for four, well done by Jadeja

14.5

Watson to Jadeja, 1 run, cramps the batsman up by angling into the pads, defended off the back foot to the left of the bowler for a single

14.6

Watson to Patel, 2 runs, an unseemly flat-batted hit towards long-on, very good running from Kochi, scamper back for the second
