Indian Premier League - 15th match

Kolkata Knight Riders v Rajasthan Royals

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 5 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

6.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Rahane, OUT, pitched right up to the bat and spinning away, Rahane went for a drive but seems to have got an edge through to the wicket-keeper! One down!

AM Rahane c †Bisla b Shakib Al Hasan 19 (27m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 118.75

Rajasthan Royals 45/1   R Dravid 26* (21b 5x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 0.1-0-0-1

7.5

Pathan to Menaria, OUT, short of a length and that is played away to the leg-side, wanted a single, but it had gone very close to the bowler on his left. Pathan ran towards the bowler, picked it up and threw down the stumps at the non-striker's end direct...way out of the crease.

AL Menaria run out 1 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Rajasthan Royals 48/2   R Dravid 28* (25b 5x4)   YK Pathan 0.5-0-1-0

8.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Dravid, OUT, pitched up again, tossed up with a bit of flight and Dravid has driven it straight to the fielder at short cover! Simple catch to the right of Tiwary and all of a sudden, the side has lost three wickets!

R Dravid c Tiwary b Shakib Al Hasan 28 (36m 27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 103.70

Rajasthan Royals 49/3   SP Goswami 1* (1b)   Shakib Al Hasan 1.2-0-3-2

16.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Goswami, OUT, gone, caught! Outside the off-stump, goes for a sweep and the ball does not hit the meat, caught by the short mid-wicket fielder.

SP Goswami c Balaji b Shakib Al Hasan 24 (37m 22b 1x4 1x6) SR: 109.09

Rajasthan Royals 108/4   OA Shah 30* (29b 3x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 3.4-0-16-3

18.1

Narine to Shah, OUT, gone, stumped! Shah gave it away very early by going down the pitch and the "off-spinner" bowled a leggie. Shah was far down the track and he misses completely to allow Bisla to complete a simple job.

OA Shah st †Bisla b Narine 31 (43m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 93.93

Rajasthan Royals 113/5   BJ Hodge 2* (5b)   SP Narine 3.1-0-19-1
