Morkel to Watson, 1 run, gentle nudge into the leg-side as Watson gets off the mark

10.1

Jakati to Watson, OUT, what a stunner of a catch from Jakati! Watson has hit that flat delivery very hard, straight back at the bowler and the umpire was in danger of having his head taken off if Jakati hadn't leapt in front of him and taken it with both hands.

SR Watson c & b Jakati 32 (26b 5x4 0x6) SR: 123.07

Rajasthan Royals 86/1   SR Watson 32 (26b 5x4)
