Rajasthan Royals v Sunrisers Hyderabad

Rajasthan Royals won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

5.1

Watson to Dhawan, no run, on the middle stump and on length too, angling slightly away from him and defended back to the bowler

5.2

Watson to Dhawan, no run, keeps it very close to the stumps here, on the off stump too and defended to the off side, was looking to play it down to third-man, gets it squarer

5.3

Watson to Dhawan, no run, length ball yet again, can only tap it through to the covers

5.4

Watson to Dhawan, 1 run, length ball on the off stump and this time his push into the covers has resulted in a single for the batsman, it's been a grind so far

5.5

Watson to White, FOUR, gone, through the point region for a four, it was short of length and on the off stump, he gives a punch off the back foot and beats the two fielders there

5.6

Watson to White, 1 run, short of length and pulled well, that seemed to have been hit off the middle but Trivedi makes a dive towards his right and fields that, a bit clumsy but in the end restricts it to one

Sunrisers Hyderabad 27/2   SR Watson 1-0-6-0

7.1

Watson to Dhawan, 1 run, inside edge but from Watson's point of view, it does not roll on to the stumps but is off to the on-side for a single, was a length ball and he was looking to defend at it

7.2

Watson to White, FOUR, hooked away for a four, White's looking in that kind of a mood that he will go after anything that he can, it was a bouncer and goes for a hook, last time he had got out playing it, this time it gets fine for four

7.3

Watson to White, no run, driven a fuller ball and straight to the short cover fielder

7.4

Watson to White, 1 run, shorter in length and outside the off stump, opens the face of the bat and steers it through to third-man for a single

7.5

Watson to Dhawan, no run, seams back into the batsman again, he was looking to defend at it and it gets an inside edge to the leg side

7.6

Watson to Dhawan, 1 run, a quick shimmy down the track and pushed into the covers for a quick single, helped no doubt by the fact that he had already taken those few steps down the pitch

Sunrisers Hyderabad 38/2   SR Watson 2-0-13-0

14.1

Watson to Sammy, SIX, finally a connection, finally a six! it was on a length and he hits it across the line over mid-wicket for a six, muscled over despite not hitting the middle

14.2

Watson to Sammy, 2 runs, and almost a four now, was round the stumps and he was looking to flick it through the short fine-leg fielder, Trivedi dives to his left and stops it partially

14.3

Watson to Sammy, no run, wide outside the off stump, fuller too and he brings him bat down in time, tries to jam it down but misses

14.4

Watson to Sammy, no run, short of length and slightly slower, he was looking to pull it away but does not get it off the middle of the bat, on the bounce and back to the bowler

14.5

Watson to Sammy, 1 run, full-toss on the off stump and he can only hit it straight to mid-wicket for a single

14.6

Watson to Dhawan, 1 run, full-toss outside the off stump and he gets some bat on it to extra-cover, Dravid fields well but for the second time tonight he misses a direct-hit

Sunrisers Hyderabad 77/3   SR Watson 3-0-23-0

17.1

Watson to Sammy, SIX, slapped it over mid-wicket for a six! this was round the stump and for some reason bowled it on a length and outside the off stump, when you do that you are bound to be swung away by someone like Sammy, gets it for a six, he's charged up, the batsman

17.2

Watson to Sammy, 1 run, OUT, gone, run-out, what an effort in the field, what a throw, that's Sammy walking back! that was fuller outside the off stump, and he has to drill it through the covers, gets it to the sub fielder at sweeper, Shukla, he had to run across to his right and field it, throws it hard and flat and next to the stumps, bails are whipped off and he's out

DJG Sammy run out 29 (32m 21b 0x4 3x6) SR: 138.09

Watson to Samantray, 1 run, on a length and outside the off stump, tapped down to long-on for a single

17.6

Watson to Perera, OUT, edged and taken by the keeper! was a fuller, outside the off stump and he was looking to swing it away, gets an outside edge on it, easily taken by the keeper, big, big couple of wickets in that over
