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

I Sharma to Dravid, OUT, leading edge and gone, caught at point! it was on the middle stump, he was looking to flick it away like he's been doing so far, on replays it looks like there was some movement away to the off side and the leading edge's taken it straight to the fielder

R Dravid c KV Sharma b I Sharma 12 (10m 10b 3x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Rajasthan Royals 13/1   AM Rahane 1* (2b)   I Sharma 1-0-5-1

KV Sharma to Watson, OUT, what a catch! sensational from Sammy! Watson's gone! that was shorter again and he goes for a pull yet again, gets it right out of the screws and would have gone for a six any other time, only this time it's a charged up Sammy who jumps high, as high as he can and plucks out a beauty!

SR Watson c Sammy b KV Sharma 24 (20m 15b 5x4 0x6) SR: 160.00

Rajasthan Royals 50/2   AM Rahane 14* (15b 1x6)   KV Sharma 0.4-0-6-1

Sammy to Yagnik, OUT, what a poor stroke, now why would you do that? it was on the off stump from round the stumps, it was on a length and with the run-rate needed at less than 6.5, he could have done better than tried to slog it away, misses and the off stump and sent flat on the ground

DH Yagnik b Sammy 0 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rajasthan Royals 53/3   AM Rahane 17* (17b 1x6)   DJG Sammy 0.4-0-3-1

Mishra to Rahane, OUT, gone, caught and bowled, soft dismissal this! floated up to the bat this one, he was looking to drive it down the ground but can only lob it back to the bowler and Mishra has got number four

AM Rahane c & b Mishra 18 (42m 20b 0x4 1x6) SR: 90.00

Rajasthan Royals 55/4   STR Binny 1* (1b)   A Mishra 0.2-0-0-1

Sammy to Binny, OUT, bowled him, this is hara-kiri from the batsmen, was on a length and there was a bit of an inward cut, he looks to play it through the off side and in doing so leaves a lot of gap between the bat and the pad, sneaks through easily and bowled

STR Binny b Sammy 2 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Rajasthan Royals 57/5   SV Samson 1* (5b)   DJG Sammy 2-0-7-2

Steyn to Samson, OUT, that's gone, fast, furious and swinging back, easily beats the bat and thuds straight into the pads, hitting it right in front of the stumps and the stand's broken, another turnaround?

SV Samson lbw b Steyn 10 (29m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.61

Rajasthan Royals 102/6   BJ Hodge 36* (19b 2x4 3x6)   DW Steyn 2.5-0-13-1
