4 May 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

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   R Dravid 49* (35b 9x4)   SB Jakati 2.1-0-13-1

Ashwin to Menaria, OUT, Menaria's time at the crease comes to an end. Shorter delivery and he goes on the pull but doesn't get enough on it and Vijay has to backpedal to collect but takes the catch comfortably in the end

AL Menaria c Vijay b Ashwin 2 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Rajasthan Royals 92/2   R Dravid 53* (40b 9x4)   R Ashwin 2.2-0-25-1

Jakati to Botha, OUT, Botha's move up the order is also not successful today. He gave himself room to hit that full ball over extra cover but got it wrong, ended up getting a leading edge and was caught by Suresh Raina at cover.

J Botha c Raina b Jakati 8 (6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Rajasthan Royals 109/3   R Dravid 62* (47b 10x4)   SB Jakati 3.3-0-18-2

Randiv to Dravid, OUT, Goner! Easy as you like it, Vijay is calm as ever as he takes the catch. Dravid is going for the big shot off the short ball, rocks back and pulls to deep mid-wicket. No century for Dravid today, that a lot of our readers were hoping for.

R Dravid c Vijay b Randiv 66 (51b 10x4 0x6) SR: 129.41

Rajasthan Royals 117/4   LRPL Taylor 4* (3b)   S Randiv 3.4-0-31-1

Morkel to Rahane, OUT, Rahane walks across his stumps to get hold of that ball outside offstump, He ends up hitting straight up in the air as he tries to go aerial on the leg-side. Morkel takes the catch off his own bowling.

AM Rahane c & b Morkel 4 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 139/5   LRPL Taylor 20* (13b 2x4)   JA Morkel 3.3-0-23-1

Morkel to Taylor, OUT, full delivery, Taylor takes a big step forward and wants to hit that over long-on, but only makes contact with the toe end of the bat and feeds it down Mike Hussey's throat, Morkel on a hat-trick

LRPL Taylor c Hussey b Morkel 20 (14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Rajasthan Royals 139/6   STR Binny 0* (0b)   JA Morkel 3.4-0-23-2
