Deccan Chargers won by 5 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)
18 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Steyn to Rahane, OUT, edged and gone, caught in the slips! That was on the middle again, swinging slightly away from the bat, Rahane was looking to play it to the leg side, on the back foot but the deviation finds the outside edge of the bat and goes through to the lone slip in place, caught by Dhawan.

AM Rahane c Dhawan b Steyn 6 (5m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Rajasthan Royals 8/1   R Dravid 2* (2b)   DW Steyn 0.3-0-2-1

Mishra to Watson, OUT, bowled him! Pitched on the middle, probably drifting in and then spins away to hit the off stump, Watson's walking back after his 13-ball essay

SR Watson b Mishra 13 (21m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Rajasthan Royals 41/2   R Dravid 22* (17b 4x4)   A Mishra 0.1-0-0-1

Mishra to Binny, OUT, bowled him again, and this time it is off the wrong 'un! Where was this Mishra before in the tournament? He is getting them to rip away and this one is pitched on the off stump, he went for the cut thinking it was going to turn away, instead it came in and sneaked through the defences!

STR Binny b Mishra 7 (9m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Rajasthan Royals 54/3   R Dravid 27* (24b 4x4)   A Mishra 1.4-0-5-2

Gony to Dravid, OUT, gone, caught and that is after a wobble too! Outside the off stump, width given and he went for a slash, goes high in the air and straight to the sweeper, who managed to almost make a mess of it!

R Dravid c Lynn b Gony 39 (53m 36b 5x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Rajasthan Royals 73/4   OA Shah 5* (9b)   MS Gony 3-0-21-1

Pratap Singh to Menaria, OUT, cut away and into the hands of the deep point fielder! Dhawan had dropped one earlier but he gets his second catch this time, it was short, wide and deserved that shot, except that it needed to be played in the gap, instead it went straight down the throat of the fielder and to everyone's relief around, it went to hand.

AL Menaria c Dhawan b Pratap Singh 20 (26m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 117.64

Rajasthan Royals 108/5   OA Shah 17* (24b)   V Pratap Singh 2.2-0-19-1

Steyn to Botha, OUT, short ball, tries to pull it away, top-edge and that has been caught well by the bowler, to his right, there was a fielder running in from mid-wicket but Steyn calmly pouches it

J Botha c & b Steyn 3 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Rajasthan Royals 118/6   OA Shah 23* (29b 1x4)   DW Steyn 3.5-0-14-2

Pratap Singh to Goswami, OUT, full-toss, misses the outside edge and flicks the stumps on its way to the keeper, bowled!

SP Goswami b Pratap Singh 3 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Rajasthan Royals 126/7   OA Shah 28* (32b 1x4)   V Pratap Singh 3.5-0-31-2

Pratap Singh to Chandila, OUT, short of length, outside the off stump, wanted to pull it, away missed, they run for a bye, Patel was waiting for it, he collected it, rushed in and throws the stumps down at the striker's end, Shah has not yet got to the crease and the umpire gives it out!

OA Shah run out 28 (58m 32b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Rajasthan Royals 126/8   A Chandila 0* (1b)   V Pratap Singh 4-0-31-2
