0.3

Rampaul to Watson, no run, beats the batsman with a length delivery outside off. Watson stayed in the crease and tried to dab it to third man

0.4

Rampaul to Watson, 1 run, slightly short in length and that is enough for Watson to chop it past point firmly, the fielder there gets a finger to it to slow it down

0.5

Rampaul to Rahane, no run, back of length delivery on the stumps, Rahane stays in the crease and defends it solidly down the pitch

0.6

2.1

Rampaul to Watson, no run, fuller length delivery on off stump, Watson drives it firmly with a slightly closed face, finds mid-on with that shot

2.2

Rampaul to Watson, OUT, caught at mid-off! It was another full length delivery on off stump and this time Watson goes straight with his shot, hits it really hard but doesn't get the elevation he would have liked. Murali Kartik times his jump to perfection and plucks it to give RCB the first boost

SR Watson c Kartik b Rampaul 6 (9m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

2.3

2.6

Rampaul to Dravid, no run, slightly short in length, Dravid plays a pull shot straight to midwicket. He didn't get much timing on that as the ball came slightly slow off the deck

4.1

Rampaul to Dravid, no run, length delivery on off stump, Dravid stays in the crease and punches it forcefully to the fielder at mid-off

Rampaul to Dravid, no run, short of length delivery outside off, Dravid makes room to hit it through off, but it bounces a touch extra and goes past the outside edge

4.3

Rampaul to Dravid, no run, back of length delivery and Dravid stands tall to play a back foot punch through off, but he is not able to beat the fielder at cover

4.4

Rampaul to Dravid, FOUR, he gets a length delivery outside off which he tries to smash back down the ground, but the bat face closes and the ball just eludes a diving mid-on, goes past his left to the boundary

4.5

Rampaul to Dravid, 1 run, length delivery on off stump, Dravid is struggling with his timing here and he pushes it towards the off side

4.6

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   R Rampaul 3-1-16-1

19.1

Rampaul to Chandila, no run, again, moves away to the leg side and tries to slog a length delivery but misses, the ball goes past the leg stump

Rampaul to Chandila, 1 run, moves his front leg out of the way and punches this length delivery past the non-striker for a single

19.3

Rampaul to Trivedi, 2 runs, makes room and slashes this full delivery over cover, it goes high rather than long and drops just before the boundary. The fielder at deep cover pulls it in

19.4

Rampaul to Trivedi, OUT, he was making room again, but this time he gets a short delivery to which he presents an sky-facing blade. The ball ramps off the face off the bat and settles in the hands of RP at third man

SK Trivedi c Singh b Rampaul 3 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 117/10   R Rampaul 3.4-1-19-2
