Indian Premier League - Elimination final
Rajasthan Royals won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)
22 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Malik to Patel, 1 run, leg-stump line and swinging further away, flicked away to the fine-leg fielder for a single to get off the mark


Malik to Dhawan, no run, gets his line slightly straighter this time, fuller in length too and Dhawan gets his bat and pad out and taps it to the cover fielder


Malik to Dhawan, no run, on a good length and middle stump line from over the wicket, he gets his front foot out and defends it to the off side


Malik to Dhawan, 1 run, oww, an outside edge this time that's in the air and then rolls over to the third-man region for a single


Malik to Patel, no run, length ball, not too pace on it and he wants to hit it on the up, driven straight to the short cover fielder


Malik to Patel, OUT, and gone, caught in the covers! checking for the no-ball but it looks like he's quite alright, it was on a length there and Parthiv was looking to play it across the line, gets bit of a leading edge and it goes high in the air, the fielder had to run back, stabilise himself before taking the catch

PA Patel c Samson b Malik 1 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sunrisers Hyderabad 2/1   VS Malik 1-0-2-1

Malik to Vihari, no run, short of length, outside the off stump, defended off the back foot to the off side


Malik to Vihari, no run, short of length and angling back into the batsman, Vihari taps it back to the bowler who dives to his right to stop it


Malik to Vihari, OUT, gone, caught, that's number two for Malik! this was short of length from the bowler and probably deserved the stroke on any other pitch, here the ball's not coming on to the bat and he went for the pull, gets it some place other than the sweet part of the bat and it lobs up gently for mid-on to gobble it...two down and in strife

GH Vihari c Cooper b Malik 1 (6m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50


Malik to White, no run, outside the off stump and quite full, gets hit bat out and defends it to the off side


Malik to White, no run, shortens his length this time and the batsman is back and defending to the off side


Malik to White, 3 runs, fuller on the middle stump and gently flicked away to the leg-side, should have been a single alone but Cooper misfields and they are able to come back for the second...and then a third

Sunrisers Hyderabad 6/2   VS Malik 2-0-5-2

Malik to Dhawan, FOUR, now that's the shot we have been waiting for, he loves playing it too, takes a couple of steps down the pitch and then opens the face of the bat and taps it through extra-cover for a four


Malik to Dhawan, no run, straighter now and short of length, the batsman can only push it back to the bowler


Malik to Dhawan, 1 run, and again, takes those couple of steps down the track, and this is not full enough, just pushes it down to mid-off for a single


Malik to White, no run, loud appeal for an lbw! it was a short of length delivery and White wanted to pull, misses it and hits the pads, but looked very high and the umpire rightly gives it not-out


Malik to White, no run, shorter on the off stump and wants to crack it through the covers, hits it straight to the point fielder


Malik to White, FOUR, superb shot that, continues to bowl shorter in length but this is slightly wider outside the off, he stands up tall and taps it down the ground, easily beats the mid-on fielder and once that happens, there's no stopp it

Sunrisers Hyderabad 21/2   VS Malik 3-0-14-2
