Rampaul to Watson, FOUR, bowls it short of length on the pads and all Watson has to do is flick it past the short fine leg fielder

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

Rajasthan Royals 10/0   AM Rahane 4* (3b 1x4)   RP Singh 0.4-0-5-0

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

Rajasthan Royals 14/1   AM Rahane 8* (8b 2x4)   RP Singh 1.3-0-9-0

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

Rajasthan Royals 18/1   R Dravid 4* (8b 1x4)   R Rampaul 2.4-1-9-1

Unadkat to Binny, FOUR, back of length delivery on off stump, there is only a little room available and Binny gets on his back foot and punches this one through the gap at cover point

Rajasthan Royals 30/2   STR Binny 4* (3b 1x4)   JD Unadkat 0.5-0-5-1

Unadkat to Binny, FOUR, he cracks this length delivery through cover with some power! He made some room too as he played that one

Rajasthan Royals 38/2   STR Binny 11* (7b 2x4)   JD Unadkat 1.1-0-10-1

Unadkat to Dravid, FOUR, finally Dravid gets hit timing right! It was slightly short of length on the off and middle stump and the batsman was quick to rock back and pull it past midwicket

Rajasthan Royals 45/2   R Dravid 11* (15b 2x4)   JD Unadkat 1.4-0-17-1

Kartik to Binny, FOUR, he has timed it so well through the off side that the fielder at deep cover had no chance. It was a full delivery and he made some room and absolutely crashed it

Rajasthan Royals 53/2   STR Binny 21* (12b 3x4)   M Kartik 0.2-0-6-0

Vinay Kumar to Binny, FOUR, oye! It was a short delivery on off stump and it looked like the batsman was beaten in his initial movement, but he smokes it over midwicket. It just bounces inside the boundary

Rajasthan Royals 64/2   STR Binny 32* (17b 4x4 1x6)   R Vinay Kumar 1.1-0-7-0

Kartik to Dravid, FOUR, pushes it through on the middle and leg line, but Dravid is very quick to rock back and find enough power in his punch to beat the wide long-on easily

Rajasthan Royals 79/3   R Dravid 21* (23b 3x4)   M Kartik 2.2-0-22-0

Unadkat to Dravid, FOUR, gets a fuller delivery and he drives it powerfully down the ground, not much timing, but a lot of power in that. It splits the too fielders in the deep

Rajasthan Royals 88/3   R Dravid 27* (27b 4x4)   JD Unadkat 3.5-0-30-1

Kartik to Dravid, FOUR, it's short of length on the middle stump and although Dravid doesn't get much timing with his pull, he hits it in the gap at deep midwicket

Rajasthan Royals 97/3   R Dravid 35* (30b 5x4)   M Kartik 3.3-0-31-0

Kartik to Yagnik, FOUR, Yagnik is not wasting an times, he charges down the pitch and swipes the tossed up delivery wide of long-on

Rajasthan Royals 101/4   DH Yagnik 4* (2b 1x4)   M Kartik 4-0-35-1

Vinay Kumar to Hodge, FOUR, that is some timing now from Hodge! It was a full delivery on off, but then he not only times it, he gives it a bit of whiplash punch to send it to extra cover

Rajasthan Royals 105/4   BJ Hodge 13* (16b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 2.1-0-13-1
