20 April 2013 - night match (20-over match)

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

Rajasthan Royals 10/1   AM Rahane 4* (5b 1x4)   R Rampaul 1.2-0-5-1

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   R Dravid 6* (10b 1x4)   JD Unadkat 0.2-0-1-1

Vinay Kumar to Binny, OUT, this is a horrible shot by Binny after looking so good for the last 15 minutes. It was short and widish outside off, Binny decides to play another pull shot. But Vinay had cranked up the pace and the ball was getting bigger on him too, he just manages to get a big top-edge that goes behind the keeper, who takes a good catch running backwards

STR Binny c †Arun Karthik b Vinay Kumar 33 (21m 20b 4x4 1x6) SR: 165.00

Rajasthan Royals 66/3   R Dravid 13* (17b 2x4)   R Vinay Kumar 1.5-0-9-1

Kartik to Dravid, OUT, Dravid's scratchy stay in the middle comes to an end as he chips this full delivery straight down to long-on. He scored 35, but was struggling to get his timing going all through the innings. An important innings nonetheless

R Dravid c Rampaul b Kartik 35 (52m 31b 5x4 0x6) SR: 112.90

Rajasthan Royals 97/4   BJ Hodge 9* (15b)   M Kartik 3.4-0-31-1

Vinay Kumar to Hodge, OUT, the bowler corrects his mistake immediately by bowling it short of length just outside off. Hodge stays in the crease and tries to steer it to third man, but the ball bounces a touch extra and catches the outside edge en route to the keeper

BJ Hodge c †Arun Karthik b Vinay Kumar 13 (23m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

Rajasthan Royals 105/5   DH Yagnik 4* (2b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 2.2-0-13-2

Singh to Faulkner, OUT, caught at long-on! he gets a full delivery and tries to launch it over long-on, but he doesn't get any the intended elevation in that, straight down the throat of the fielder down the ground

JP Faulkner c Rampaul b Singh 3 (5m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Rajasthan Royals 108/6   DH Yagnik 4* (2b 1x4)   RP Singh 2.3-0-9-1

Singh to Yagnik, OUT, caught at mid-off! The wickets are falling very very quickly for Royals here and this innings is not going anywhere. Yagnik gets a full ball and he drives it straight to mid-off, who dives forwards and takes a good low catch

DH Yagnik c Rampaul b Singh 5 (13m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Rajasthan Royals 110/7   A Chandila 1* (1b)   RP Singh 3-0-11-2

Vinay Kumar to Sreesanth, OUT, the procession continues. It's a good delivery by Vinay who fires it full and on middle stump. Sreesanth misses and it hits him right around his boot, plumb in front

S Sreesanth lbw b Vinay Kumar 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rajasthan Royals 111/8   A Chandila 2* (3b)   R Vinay Kumar 3.4-0-17-3

Singh to Tait, OUT, the offstump is sent cartwheeling, but it was not such a great delivery, a mere high full-toss. Tait had moves outside leg and doesn't manage to get anything on it. Talk about hand-eye coordination, and that was a bad example

SW Tait b Singh 1 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Rajasthan Royals 112/9   A Chandila 2* (3b)   RP Singh 3.1-0-11-3

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   A Chandila 4* (6b)   R Rampaul 3.4-1-19-2
