Sharma to Watson, FOUR, stop press! Steve Smith has misfielded, lets it through for four, that was short from Rahul, Watson slammed it along the gorund towards long-on, Smith got to the ball in time but makes a hash of the fielding effort, slightly over ran it actually

Rajasthan Royals 81/1   SR Watson 31* (16b 2x4 3x6)   R Sharma 1.1-0-14-0

Sharma to Watson, FOUR, outside off, not too much width but enough for Watson to show he's not all about brute force, carves it behind backward point for four, superb placement there

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

Rajasthan Royals 150/2   AM Rahane 55* (42b 6x4)   B Kumar 3.2-0-27-0
