View dismissal G Gambhir c sub (T Kohli) b Watson 11 15 1 0 73.33
3.6 That's a stunner of a catch! Gambhir dances down the track and slaps hard, it's in the air and Taruwar Kohli (the substitute) throws himself to the left at point, extends his arms and plucks off a peach, that was one hell of a catch, Rajasthan are on a roll here. What a big wicket that was 23/2
View dismissal V Sehwag* c Sohail Tanvir b Watson 3 4 0 0 75.00
1.2 what a big wicket! short and quick, that was well targetted, 132kph, tries to pull hard but that's caught the top edge and rocketed high in the air, he was no way in control of that, Tanvir runs to his left from fine leg and pulls off a sharp catch, he actually ended up taking a one-hander, though he had it covered 10/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c Jadeja b Watson 5 12 0 0 41.66
5.2 caught! Watson's on a roll, he pitches the ball slightly short, it isn't a wicket ball by any means but Dhawan moves back and pulls the ball straight to Jadeja at midwicket, the ball went straight to him, he didn't need to move an inch 24/3
View dismissal MK Tiwary c Asnodkar b Patel 0 3 0 0 0.00
6.2 another one goes, Tiwary tries to pull off the front foot when the length isn't short enough, the ball hurries on to him and he top-edges between midwicket and mid-on, Asnodkar goes for it from midwicket and nearly collides with Tanvir who came in from mid-on, Asnodkar holds the catch in the end 28/4
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Sohail Tanvir b Warne 33 22 5 1 150.00
12.5 caught! Dilshan's fall is surely the end of Delhi's slim chances, Warne loops the ball outside leg stump and spins the ball across the right-hander, Dilshan gets down on one knee and tries to slog sweep, he gets a top edge that flies to fine leg where Tanvir runs forward and catches it 76/7
View dismissal KD Karthik c Kaif b Trivedi 10 12 1 0 83.33
9.5 caught! Would you believe it, off a full toss! Karthik flicks a friendly full toss off his pads, he's hit it flat in the air towards deep midwicket where Kaif sprints off the boundary line and slides to take a low catch, well judged and Rajasthan tighten their vice-like grip on this match 55/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof c Pathan b Warne 6 6 1 0 100.00
12.1 caught! Warne's got rid of Maharoof! He cleared his front foot out of the way and tried to loft the legbreak against the spin over midwicket, he didn't hit it well enough and Yusuf Pathan settled under the skier at deep midwicket, Maharoof hit 26 runs off an over from Warne in their last match but Warne got the better of him today 75/6

View dismissal VY Mahesh c †Rawat b Patel 3 10 0 0 30.00
15.2 the ninth falls! Yomahesh takes a walk down and tries to hook a short ball from Munaf, he misses and the ball smacks into his shoulder and lobs up towards Rawat who takes the catch, Rajasthan appeal and Rudi nods after a delay, he isn't sure initially but then tentatively raises the finger 82/9
View dismissal Mohammad Asif run out (Pathan/†Rawat) 3 5 0 0 60.00
16.1 from Jadeja, a bizarre run out it's all over, Rajasthan are in the finals! Asif worked the ball off his pads towards short fine leg, McGrath had run a long way down the pitch and the fielder threw the ball towards the bowlers end, McGrath made his ground and the ball was backed up by Yusuf, he saw that Asif was taking it easy at the striker's end and had wandered out of his crease, Yusuf fired the throw in to Rawat who calmly broke the stumps with Asif just short of his crease 87/10
