Singh to Rahane, FOUR, oh beautiful short this one! It was short of length delivery angling across him, he gets up with the ball and punches it through cover point


Singh to Rahane, no run, similar line, but the length is a touch fuller. This time Rahane lets it go through


Singh to Rahane, no run, no swing for RP, so he bowls it on a tight line around off stump. Rahane gets behind it solidly and defends to the leg side

Singh to Rahane, no run, length delivery outside off, Rahane leans forward and drives it, but finds the fielder at cover


Singh to Rahane, no run, another length delivery on off stump, the batsman comes forward and pushes it past the non-striker. Mid-on and mid-off converge to cut the possibility of a single


Singh to Rahane, FOUR, that is a good hit! He gets some room just outside off and it's a length delivery. Since it's not swinging, Rahane just drives it over mid-on with a straight bat. One bounce and four


Singh to Rahane, no run, walks a couple of steps down the pitch but gets squared up by a length delivery, plays it towards cover


Singh to Rahane, no run, he responds with a bouncer, and it is a quick one too. Rahane is beaten in his pull

Rajasthan Royals 14/1   AM Rahane 8* (11b 2x4)

Rampaul to Rahane, SIX, oh what a shot that is! He makes room and charges down at the same time, gets a shortish delivery that gets big on him, but he goes on with his punch shot over mid-off, and looks at the timing, it sails over the rope

Rajasthan Royals 25/1   AM Rahane 14* (12b 2x4 1x6)

Unadkat to Rahane, OUT, he has been done in by an excellent slower ball by Unadkat! Rahane sees length and comes forward to drive, but that was bowled at 118kph and he is too early into his shot, ends up slicing it towards point where Dilshan completes and easy catch

AM Rahane c Dilshan b Unadkat 14 (22m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 107.69

Rajasthan Royals 26/2   AM Rahane 14 (13b 2x4 1x6)
