9.3

Hodge to Shah, no run, flighted on the off, pushed back to the bowler

9.4

Hodge to Shah, OUT, quicker through the air, bowled on a length outside off and he goes for the slog-sweep, mistimes it as it comes off the bottom of the bat, Rao makes no mistake at long-on, simple chance

PR Shah c Gnaneswara Rao b Hodge 5 (5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Rajasthan Royals 69/5   BJ Hodge 1-0-5-1

11.1

Hodge to Menaria, 1 run, floating it outside off from round the wicket, guided towards short third man

11.2

Hodge to Oram, OUT, Oram goes for a duck, a slightly quicker delivery landing on leg, Oram lazily tries to drive it through the line, misses, it deflects off the pads onto the off stump which is knocked down, will Rajasthan survive the 20 overs?

Rajasthan Royals 80/6   BJ Hodge 2-0-9-2

13.1

Hodge to Warne, OUT, gone, gone! Warne drags it on, flat delivery well outside off and he tries to sweep it square, gets an inside edge straight onto the off stump, tame dismissal there, Kochi are on top

13.4

Hodge to Chavan, 1 run, short ball outside off, slapped towards deep cover for a single

13.5

Hodge to Menaria, OUT, run-out, Rajasthan in disarray, guided to short third man, Chavan wanted a single and kept running through even as Menaria turned back, it's a wayward throw to the bowler's end and Hodge collects it yards away from the stumps, recovers well to take off the bails and catch him well short

AA Chavan run out 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

13.6

Hodge to Menaria, no run, flighted outside off, driven straight to extra cover

Hodge to Menaria, 2 runs, short ball outside off and it's swatted hard past the diving extra cover in the deep for a couple of runs

15.2

Hodge to Menaria, OUT, Rajasthan are throwing it away, four for Hodge, tossed up on middle, Menaria made plenty of room to loft it over long-off, got plenty of elevation and it landed safely in the palms of Owais Shah waiting there for exactly that

AL Menaria c Shah b Hodge 31 (28b 3x4 1x6) SR: 110.71

15.3

Hodge to Tait, 1 run, short of a good length, gets back and punches it to extra cover

15.4

Hodge to Doshi, no run, full and wide and Doshi keeps Hodge interested, goes for a drive but misses

15.5

Hodge to Doshi, no run, short and wide, tries to cut that, doesn't make contact

15.6

Hodge to Doshi, no run, will be disappointed, slips in a short and wide delivery that Doshi wisely lets go, no five-for but he's put Kochi in complete control with his spell

Rajasthan Royals 90/9   BJ Hodge 4-0-13-4
