Indian Premier League, 60th match: Rajasthan Royals v Pune Warriors at Jaipur, May 13, 2012
Rajasthan Royals won by 45 runs
13 May 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

Chandila to Ryder, OUT, Jesse Ryder is gone, his seventh single-digit score in 10 games, he gets under one from Chandila, and lofts it high, doesn't carry very far, Watson pedals back from mid-on and settles under it, Chandila's first wicket of the season, I'm waiting for a renewed barrage of where-is-Tamim mails

JD Ryder c Watson b Chandila 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pune Warriors 3/1   SC Ganguly 2* (3b)   A Chandila 0.5-0-3-1

Chandila to Ganguly, OUT, is that another one? another on leg stump, Ganguly stepped forward and looks to nudge it to the leg side, off the bat and on to the pad, bouncing to the keeper, Ganguly overbalances, the keeper is quick to take off the bails and just beats Ganguly's attempt to get back, terrific start for Rajasthan, the spinner whose name Dravid couldn't recall has removed both openers in the first over

SC Ganguly st †Goswami b Chandila 2 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pune Warriors 3/2   RV Uthappa 0* (0b)   A Chandila 1-0-3-2

Chandila to Uthappa, OUT, a hat-trick for Chandila, the first one of the season, length ball outside off, Uthappa looking to drive that through the off, is dragged forward as he tries the shot, he's beaten and his back foot is out of the crease, Sreevats is on to complete the job, Uthappa's disappointing season continues, Chandila, on the other hand, is ecstatic though, setting off on a fist-pumping celebratory run

RV Uthappa st †Goswami b Chandila 6 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pune Warriors 11/3   AP Majumdar 1* (1b)   A Chandila 1.1-0-3-3

Chandila to Majumdar, OUT, a fourth for Chandila! this is what dreams are made of, again an innocuous delivery, tentatively played by Majumdar, it was on a length, and struck high on Majumdar's bat and looped back to the bowler, who completes a simple catch, 4 for 9 now for Chandila, who'd have thunk it.

AP Majumdar c & b Chandila 9 (15m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Pune Warriors 26/4   CJ Ferguson 7* (9b 1x4)   A Chandila 2.5-0-9-4

Botha to Ferguson, OUT, another one down for Pune, Ferguson is gone now, he again moved across the stumps, Botha sends it flat and towards middle and leg, Ferguson has to adjust late since he has gone too far across, can't get his front leg out of the way quick enough, struck on the pad and that's lbw

CJ Ferguson lbw b Botha 23 (34m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 88.46

Pune Warriors 60/5   SPD Smith 16* (16b 2x4)   J Botha 1.1-0-4-1

Botha to Smith, OUT, another one bites the dust, a flat, length ball from Botha is launched towards long-on, Hodge comes in from the boundary and takes a low catch to dismiss Smith

SPD Smith c Hodge b Botha 37 (41m 31b 5x4 0x6) SR: 119.35

Pune Warriors 89/6   AD Mathews 8* (9b)   J Botha 3.1-0-17-2

Tait to Kumar, OUT, too good and too quick from Tait, 146kph and full, just moving away a touch, Bhuvneshar is stuck on the crease as he looks to keep that out, he can't and off stump is on the ground

B Kumar b Tait 3 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Pune Warriors 106/7   AD Mathews 22* (17b 1x4)   SW Tait 2.2-0-18-1

Watson to Mathews, OUT, another one gone, Watson slips in the back of the hand slower one, pitched up, Mathews wanted to hammer that over long-on, can only find Rahane at long-on, Pune lose their eighth, this game will be quite handy for Rajasthan's net run-rate

AD Mathews c Rahane b Watson 23 (32m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 121.05

Pune Warriors 110/8   M Kartik 3* (4b)   SR Watson 2.2-0-18-1

Watson to Sharma, OUT, out of the world fielding here! another slower on from Watson, pitched up and that is slammed towards Botha at long-off, Botha jumps towards the rope to collect that one, as Botha lands he realises he is going to go over the boundary, Botha looks to see that Rahane is there at long-off and he lobs the ball towards him, Rahane is at least 20 yards away but he has a simple catch to take, ridiculously good that, Rahan was grinning even before he took that catch

R Sharma c Rahane b Watson 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pune Warriors 112/9   M Kartik 4* (5b)   SR Watson 3-0-19-2
