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

Cooper to White, no run, short of length and angling into the batsman, comes in a tad quicker than he expected and it's defended to the leg side


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


Cooper to Dhawan, 1 run, fuller outside the off stump and he drives it through to long-on for a single


Cooper to White, no run, crunched, that's come off the middle of the bat, was full enough to drive it straight back, but gets his hand down in time does the bowler


Cooper to White, FOUR, flies off the edge for a four, that was deliberately played, was on a length and outside the off stump, opens the bat and plays fine to the fence


Cooper to White, no run, fuller on the off stump and driven straight to the short cover fielder

Sunrisers Hyderabad 48/2   KK Cooper 1-0-6-0

Cooper to Dhawan, 1 run, goes down the track, wants to hit it inside out and Cooper spots that one, slows the pace down and he checks his shot through to wide long-off for a single


Cooper to Sammy, no run, ooh, what a ball! A West Indian to a fellow West Indian, it was on a length and he seemed to have played it off the back foot like he was looking to unwind, beats the outside edge because of the extra bounce


Cooper to Sammy, 1 run, and this time he does unwind and smacks it hard to wide long-on for a single


Cooper to Dhawan, 1 run, and another one slowed down when he saw him come down the track, gets some bat on it and loops it up to the off side, single alone


Cooper to Sammy, 1 wide, wide outside the off stump, one of the rare loose balls from RR, it was fuller and swinging away, bit quicker too as a change-up


Cooper to Sammy, 1 run, wants to tonk it hard but that one did not come on too much and it goes straight to wide long-off for only a single


Cooper to Dhawan, no run, and again, he slows it down for Dhawan, it was fuller and despite all his machinations to move around in his crease, all he can do is to drive it back to the bowler

Sunrisers Hyderabad 67/3   KK Cooper 2-0-11-0

Cooper to Sammy, SIX, and six more to Sammy, he's swung it away and over the wide long-on region for maximum, was on a length too


Cooper to Sammy, 1 run, fuller this time, tries to get him to drive it straighter and he gets it away to long-off for a single


Cooper to Perera, 1 run, full-toss on the off stump and he's tapped it to the off side like he wants to get Sammy back on strike, single for him


Cooper to Sammy, 1 run, very full and quicker too, he jabs it down to long-off for a single


Cooper to Perera, no run, swings it, misses it and misses the stumps too! was a quicker one from him and very full too, was looking to get it over the in-field but missed


Cooper to Perera, 1 wide, poor last ball, read his intentions that he was looking to crack it away, slipped in wider but it's too wide outside the off


Cooper to Perera, SIX, yes he does, yes he swings it away, yes he gets a six! that was a fuller one and just where he wanted, in his arc, swings hard and gets it for a six

Sunrisers Hyderabad 104/4   KK Cooper 3-0-27-0

Cooper to Samantray, 1 run, fuller on the off stump and tapped down to long-off for a single


Cooper to KV Sharma, 1 run, slower one on the leg stump and he's too early in his stroke, chipped over the leg side for a single, was in the air for some time there


Cooper to Samantray, no run, swings it and misses it, was a length ball and again, seemed a tad slower there, was way early into his stroke


Cooper to Samantray, FOUR, and now, wow, what a stroke, it was full alright and he just jabs it back, was a slower one too but tell you what, it's gone straight and hit the rope! third umpire looking at it, takes a lot of time to decide on whether it was a four or a the end, he's given it a four there


Cooper to Samantray, 2 runs, and gets it high in the air yet again, took the pace off it yet again, 107 km/hr, was very early into his stroke and gets it over to the deep square leg region, the fielder runs to his right, and goes for the catch, leaps at it but falls just short of him


Cooper to Samantray, 1 run, slower outside the off stump and tapped to the covers for a single

Sunrisers Hyderabad 122/6   KK Cooper 4-0-36-0
