Mumbai Indians won by 4 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)
24 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Dhawan to Rahane, no run, inside edged on to his pads and rolls over to the leg-side, that seamed back into the batsman who was looking to go for an off-drive


Dhawan to Rahane, no run, slightly wider and fuller this time and he drives it to mid-off, not well timed though


Dhawan to Rahane, 2 runs, swings back into the batsman and neatly flicked away to backward square-leg, there was a fielder much squarer and he needed to come around to field that


Dhawan to Rahane, FOUR, cut away for a four, it was shorter in length and outside the off stump, tapped through the covers, stands up tall while playing the stroke


Dhawan to Rahane, no run, and now fuller, the batsman expects that and gets forward to defend it to the covers


Dhawan to Rahane, 1 run, again quite full and that's pushed into the covers, half-fielded and that allows the batsman to take a single off the last ball

Rajasthan Royals 11/0   AM Rahane 7* (6b 1x4)

Johnson to Rahane, 1 run, whoa, that's a bouncer that's shaken up Rahane, he was looking to hook it away and gets nowhere close to it, slams him on the helmet and it seems to have done enough damage for him to change his gear

Rajasthan Royals 12/0   AM Rahane 8* (7b 1x4)

Ojha to Rahane, 1 run, fuller on the middle stump and swept away to fine-leg for a single


Ojha to Rahane, 1 run, inside edged to the short fine-leg area, while trying to play a defensive stroke, misfielded and they go off for a single

Rajasthan Royals 23/0   AM Rahane 10* (9b 1x4)

Johnson to Rahane, FOUR, and that's a classy cut, it was on a length and he bends his knee and gets it through the backward point region, almost uses the pace of the delivery to get it away


Johnson to Rahane, no run, round the stumps now and slows the pace down to 126.1 km/hr, gets it off the bottom of the bat to the off side


Johnson to Rahane, no run, shorter in length from round the stumps and he tries to punch it again, gets it straight to the fielder, one of the many on the off side


Johnson to Rahane, FOUR, four more for Rahane now, this was pitched right up to the bat and outside the off stump, enough width to free his arms and gets it over the top, extra-cover and for a four!


Johnson to Rahane, no run, continues bowling full but this has pace taken off it, the drive is a good looking one but not in the gap on the off side


Johnson to Rahane, 1 wide, quicker, on a length but angling down the leg-side for a wide


Johnson to Rahane, 1 run, shorter in length and on the middle-stump line, tucked away behind square on the leg side for a single

Rajasthan Royals 33/0   AM Rahane 19* (15b 3x4)

Ojha to Rahane, 1 run, fullish in length from round the stumps, driven down the ground for a single

Rajasthan Royals 34/0   AM Rahane 20* (16b 3x4)

Harbhajan Singh to Rahane, 1 run, floats it right up to the bat, and neatly plays it to square-leg for a single


Harbhajan Singh to Rahane, OUT, bowled him, Harbhajan has a wicket in his first over! it was full on the leg-stump and he wants to sweep it away, misses it and rattles the stumps

AM Rahane b Harbhajan Singh 21 (30m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Rajasthan Royals 44/1   AM Rahane 21 (18b 3x4)
