Kumar to Watson, 1 run, short of length and on middle and leg, pushed towards mid-on for a single

5.4

Kumar to Rahane, no run, short of length and just outside off, defended towards the bowler

Kumar to Rahane, FOUR, on the pads this time, wonderfully stroke from Rahane, waits for it and just helps it along towards deep backward square leg for four, all about timing that

5.6

Kumar to Rahane, no run, short of length and stays a bit low, Rahane jumps as he defends that down the pitch

Rajasthan Royals 45/1   B Kumar 2-0-17-0

17.1

Kumar to Hodge, 1 run, full toss and that is whipped towards deep square leg for a single

17.2

Kumar to Rahane, FOUR, shortish and outside off, once more Rahane jumps down the track shuffling towards the leg side to make more room and chops it towards extra cover for four

17.3

Kumar to Rahane, FOUR, poor delivery that, slanting down the pads, fine leg was up, easy for Rahane to help it down to the fine leg boundary

17.4

Kumar to Rahane, no run, full and angling across, Rahane can't get bat on that as he looks to push that towards cover

17.5

Kumar to Rahane, 1 run, a full toss on leg stump, Rahane presents a straight bat, lofting it over the bowler's head, not too powerfully hit though, long-on can come around

17.6

Kumar to Hodge, 1 run, more powerfully hit this time from Hodge, making room and carving a length ball towards sweeper cover, can't get his placement right though, so he can't find the rope

Rajasthan Royals 156/2   B Kumar 4-0-33-0
