Johnson to Dravid, FOUR, and shot now! it was very full and wide enough to drive it through the covers, it was timed perfectly and more vitally for the batsman, it goes in the gap

Rajasthan Royals 4/0   R Dravid 4* (4b 1x4)   MG Johnson 0.4-0-4-0

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

Rajasthan Royals 10/0   AM Rahane 6* (4b 1x4)   R Dhawan 0.4-0-6-0

Johnson to Dravid, FOUR, whoa, that's a four through mid-off, driven down the ground and Johnson has a word or two at Dravid, who seems to be in a mood to give back!

Rajasthan Royals 16/0   R Dravid 8* (9b 2x4)   MG Johnson 1.4-0-9-0

Johnson to Dravid, FOUR, and another one, flicked away to the square-leg for a four and Johnson continues to have a go at the batsman, Dravid goes up to the bowler and asks him again, "you want to say something?"

Rajasthan Royals 20/0   R Dravid 12* (10b 3x4)   MG Johnson 1.5-0-13-0

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

Rajasthan Royals 27/0   AM Rahane 14* (10b 2x4)   MG Johnson 2.1-0-17-0

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!

Rajasthan Royals 31/0   AM Rahane 18* (13b 3x4)   MG Johnson 2.4-0-21-0

Ojha to Dravid, FOUR, and this time he does hit it hard and long, short of length and he gets back and hits it over wide long-on for a four, beats the deep mid-wicket fielder

Rajasthan Royals 38/0   R Dravid 17* (18b 4x4)   PP Ojha 1.4-0-8-0

Ojha to Dravid, FOUR, and that's a shot! takes it on the full almost like he expected it to be full, and sweeps it over square-leg now

Rajasthan Royals 42/0   R Dravid 21* (19b 5x4)   PP Ojha 1.5-0-12-0

Ojha to Dravid, FOUR, whoa, that's been tossed up really high and he hits it inside out over the extra-cover area for a four

Rajasthan Royals 48/1   R Dravid 26* (22b 6x4)   PP Ojha 2.1-0-16-0

Ojha to Watson, FOUR, and now he's away, on the off stump and bit of turn away, gets back and cracks it through the backward point area for a four

Rajasthan Royals 53/1   SR Watson 4* (5b 1x4)   PP Ojha 2.5-0-21-0

Harbhajan Singh to Dravid, FOUR, that's not quite short from the bowler, but he still goes back and cuts it late through the backward point area for a four

Rajasthan Royals 59/1   R Dravid 31* (25b 7x4)   Harbhajan Singh 1.2-0-7-1

Harbhajan Singh to Binny, FOUR, that's a quicker one attempted, was wide enough outside the off to allow the batsman to cut it late, gets it through third-man for a four, Malinga gives it a chase but in vain

Rajasthan Royals 70/3   STR Binny 4* (2b 1x4)   Harbhajan Singh 2.3-0-14-2

Ojha to Binny, FOUR, and again! he goes down the pitch and creams it over extra-cover, this time it bounces a few times before hitting the fence, ends a good over for RR

Rajasthan Royals 87/3   STR Binny 16* (8b 2x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 4-0-36-0

Malinga to Binny, FOUR, and again, a slower one, but its fuller and he's tried to push it through the covers, gets an outside edge of the bat and that rushes through the fine third-man region for a four

Rajasthan Royals 100/4   STR Binny 24* (12b 3x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-11-1

Pollard to Cooper, FOUR, punched back for a four! this was on the middle stump line with no pace taken off it, he gives it a serious whack there!

Rajasthan Royals 108/5   KK Cooper 4* (1b 1x4)   KA Pollard 0.2-0-4-1

Dhawan to Yagnik, FOUR, four off an outside edge, wide outside the off and he was looking to throw his bat at, gets the toe of the bat and easily beats Malinga there

Rajasthan Royals 116/6   DH Yagnik 6* (3b 1x4)   R Dhawan 2.3-0-16-0

Malinga to Yagnik, FOUR, short of length and it's a tad quicker than all those slower ones he's been bowling, but it's on his pads and tucked away to fine, fine-leg for a four

Rajasthan Royals 123/6   DH Yagnik 12* (6b 2x4)   SL Malinga 2.1-0-16-1

Malinga to Yagnik, FOUR, okay, so the batsman has gone really back on his crease even before the bowler has gotten to his bowling crease, gets a typically slow delivery on a length and he goes for a slog, gets an inside edge and still goes for a four!

Rajasthan Royals 129/6   DH Yagnik 17* (8b 3x4)   SL Malinga 2.4-0-22-1

Dhawan to Yagnik, FOUR, outside the off stump and squeezed through backward point for a four, beats the fielder and gets through to the fence

Rajasthan Royals 136/6   DH Yagnik 24* (11b 4x4)   R Dhawan 3.1-0-23-0

Dhawan to Hodge, FOUR, full-toss and on his pads, was darted in and he picks it up well, flicks it through to fine-leg for a four

Rajasthan Royals 143/6   BJ Hodge 14* (16b 1x4)   R Dhawan 3.5-0-30-0

Malinga to Yagnik, FOUR, look at that, just look at that, he was looking to play from behind the stumps, yep, you heard it right, he's flicked away from behind the striker's stumps over the square-leg for a four!

Rajasthan Royals 153/6   DH Yagnik 31* (16b 5x4)   SL Malinga 3.4-0-31-1

Malinga to Hodge, FOUR, finally gets a yorker right, it was swinging back in and right on the length, but what a shot! backs away and gets some bat on it through backward point for a four!

Rajasthan Royals 160/6   BJ Hodge 19* (19b 2x4)   SL Malinga 3.5-0-38-1
