Rajasthan Royals 17/1   YK Pathan 9* (3b 2x4)   GD McGrath 1.3-0-7-1

Geeves to Pathan, OUT, gone! short outside off, pulled away and they take a most reckless single, Manhas gets an accurate throw and Geeves does the rest, there was some hesitation in the running and that was suicidal from Yusuf. Needs to run back all the way. Third umpire is called up and that's gone.

Rajasthan Royals 27/2   SR Watson 9* (6b 2x4)   B Geeves 1.5-0-20-0

SR Watson run out 21 (15b 4x4 0x6) SR: 140.00

Rajasthan Royals 41/3   M Kaif 1* (6b)   R Bhatia 0.2-0-1-0

Maharoof to Lehmann, OUT, and the big man goes! Lehmann shuffles across and tries to turn a straight one past square leg but misses, and even before Maharoof can complete his appeal umpire Pratapkumar shoots up the finger, it pitched on leg stump and looked out, though Lehmann didn't think so

DS Lehmann lbw b Maharoof 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 47/4   M Kaif 5* (12b)   MF Maharoof 1.4-0-4-1

Bhatia to Kaif, OUT, simple as can be! A struggling Kaif reaches across and paddles the ball from just outside off stump straight into the hands of Geeves at short fine leg

Rajasthan Royals 57/5   RA Jadeja 4* (10b)   R Bhatia 2.3-0-6-1

Bhatia to Rawat, OUT, cleaned up! Rawat goes attempting one of those en vogue paddle-sweeps, but fails to make any contact whatsoever and pays the price for exposing leg stump

Rajasthan Royals 71/6   RA Jadeja 16* (16b 1x4 1x6)   R Bhatia 3.1-0-8-2

Vettori to Jadeja, OUT, but this is Vettori, and he's been around for a while now! The wily veteran fires it in fast and flat and Jadeja, exposing the stumps in an attempt to steer it away, fails to get bat on it much to Vettori's pleasure bowling after being carted for six

RA Jadeja b Vettori 29 (23b 2x4 2x6) SR: 126.08

Rajasthan Royals 93/7   D Salunkhe 7* (6b 1x4)   DL Vettori 1.2-0-18-1

Maharoof to Warne, OUT, goes for a booming drive over extra-cover, gets a thick inside-edge onto the back leg and it proceeds to roll onto the base of his stumps, dislodging the bails

SK Warne b Maharoof 14 (13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.69

Rajasthan Royals 110/8   D Salunkhe 10* (10b 1x4)   MF Maharoof 3.1-0-10-2
