Rajasthan Royals won by 6 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)
14 April 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Sreesanth to Gilchrist, OUT, that's a good catch at mid-off by Trivedi! It was a check shot played off a length ball by Gilly and it floated over the right shoulder, Trivedi takes a few steps back and stretches to pluck that out. Another match, another failure for Gilly.

AC Gilchrist c Trivedi b Sreesanth 0 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kings XI Punjab 5/1   Mandeep Singh 1* (6b)   S Sreesanth 0.2-0-2-1

Sreesanth to Mandeep Singh, OUT, caught at third-man! It's a different day, that's all we can say for Sreesanth. It was a length delivery wide outside off and it swings away too, the batsman throws his bat at that and gets a thick edges that flies straight down the throat of third man

Mandeep Singh c Binny b Sreesanth 2 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Kings XI Punjab 8/2   M Vohra 2* (2b)   S Sreesanth 1-0-5-2

Sreesanth to Hussey, OUT, keeps it there on a length, the batsman defends it off the back foot towards off side, and they call for a single towards cover point, but they make the fatal mistake of taking on Faulkener, who just had to move a few paces to his left. He picks it up and takes down the stumps with a direct hit and now Manan Vohra joins the openers back in the dugout..Where was the run in that one!

M Vohra run out 3 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kings XI Punjab 10/3   DJ Hussey 1* (5b)   S Sreesanth 1.3-0-5-2

Trivedi to Gurkeerat Singh, OUT, there is the edge! He bowls it on a length and gets it to seam away just enough for the ball to take a nice clean edge. It's an easy catch for the keeper.

Gurkeerat Singh c †Samson b Trivedi 10 (21m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kings XI Punjab 45/4   DJ Hussey 26* (21b 2x4 1x6)   SK Trivedi 0.4-0-2-1

Faulkner to Sathish, OUT, another edge, another take for the keeper! This one goes across the right-hander after pitching short of length, the batsman tries to do what Gambhir has done so many times in international cricket, he opens the face and guides it to the hands of the keeper, who dives to his right to complete a good catch

R Sathish c †Samson b Faulkner 11 (15m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Kings XI Punjab 67/5   DJ Hussey 36* (28b 3x4 1x6)   JP Faulkner 1.4-0-9-1

Trivedi to Hussey, OUT, fumble, but Dravid takes it on the second attempt! Mr. Hussey has driven the slower delivery straight to mid-off where Dravid goes low to take it, but palms it over his head. Much to the relief of the bowler, he holds on to it in the second attempt..

DJ Hussey c Dravid b Trivedi 41 (49m 31b 4x4 1x6) SR: 132.25

Kings XI Punjab 75/6   Azhar Mahmood 3* (4b)   SK Trivedi 2.5-0-12-2

Cooper to Chawla, OUT, he sees the slower delivery and decides that it is time to send it out of the ground, the only issue was that he played it too early. His right hand comes off the handle as he drives that and it goes really really high to come down in the lap of Rahane at long-on

PP Chawla c Rahane b Cooper 7 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Kings XI Punjab 92/7   Azhar Mahmood 13* (14b 1x4)   KK Cooper 2-0-17-1

Cooper to Azhar Mahmood, OUT, now he gets the big wicket! another slower delivery and this one is on the middle stump line. Azhar was making room by moving down leg, but as soon as he saw the fuller length, he went across the line. But the ball went through the gap between the bat and the pad to hit the middle stump

Azhar Mahmood b Cooper 23 (26m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 115.00

Kings XI Punjab 104/8   RJ Harris 2* (3b)   KK Cooper 2.3-0-21-2

Faulkner to Kumar, OUT, oh no! He has walked down too far down the pitch! It was another low full toss outside off and PK was targeting that backward point area again, but he misses it and for some reason, walks a few paces down the pitch, the keeper has all the time in the world to hit the stumps...

P Kumar run out 15 (5m 7b 2x4 1x6) SR: 214.28

Kings XI Punjab 124/9   RJ Harris 2* (3b)   JP Faulkner 3.4-0-30-1

Faulkner to Awana, OUT, this one is a nasty delivery by Faulkner for the No. 11. He has been bowling those slower deliveries all this while, but he dishes out a quick short one on the body. Awana had no idea where it went as he took his eyes off the ball while fending it. The ball just lobbed over his head for the keeper to complete the catch

P Awana c †Samson b Faulkner 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kings XI Punjab 124/10   RJ Harris 2* (3b)   JP Faulkner 3.5-0-30-2
