Rajasthan Royals 13/0   A Nehra 1-0-5-0

4.3

Nehra to Dravid, OUT, superb catch from Uthappa, especially as he's a part-time keeper, Dravid is gone, he wanted to launch that over the off side, but gets an outside edge, Uthappa dives to his right and takes a low one-handed catch

Nehra to Rahane, 1 run, pitched up and just outside off, driven towards long-off for a single

14.3

Nehra to Watson, OUT, Nehra has got the big breakthrough, a yorker from just outside off, Watson looks to squeeze this one out, but can only edge it on to the stumps, much needed wicket this, Watson was threatening to take this away from Pune, he's already provided a solid platform

14.4

Nehra to Hodge, no run, short of length ball on middle and off, defended to the off side by Hodge
