Indian Premier League - 2nd match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 75 runs

15.5

Warne to Kumar, no run, dropped off the front foot into the leg side

15.6

Warne to Kumar, no run, almost threw it away, had a blind swing at it but the spin took it away from him, the bowler has a nice chuckle while Dravid will have asked Praveen to keep himself under control

Royal Challengers Bangalore 88/6   P Kumar 0* (2b)

16.4

Henderson to Kumar, 1 run, back of a length on middle, played down wide of midwicket for a single

Royal Challengers Bangalore 94/6   P Kumar 1* (3b)

17.1

Warne to Kumar, no run, swings and misses, Praveen and Dravid are two opposites, flighted on middle and he tries to dismiss that into the stands but the ball zips away to beat him

17.2

Warne to Kumar, no run, on middle and off, pushed into the off side

17.3

Warne to Kumar, no run, slightly short on the off, kept a little low, punched to cover

17.4

Warne to Kumar, SIX, connects well this time, it's flighted and full on middle, gets under it and smashes it back over the bowler's head for the first six of the innings

17.5

Warne to Kumar, 1 run, short of a length on middle, slaps it over the non-striker to long-on

Royal Challengers Bangalore 105/6   P Kumar 8* (8b 1x6)

18.6

Henderson to Kumar, no run, yorker outside off, just outside off, Praveen fails to get his bat down in time

Royal Challengers Bangalore 117/6   P Kumar 8* (9b 1x6)

19.2

MM Patel to Kumar, OUT, the change of pace does the trick, slower ball bowled full on a length on middle and off, Praveen, predictably, tries to smash that out of Cape Town but didn't pick it well, ended up lofting it really high and Munaf had to take a few steps to his left to take a well-judged catch, took a while to come down

P Kumar c & b MM Patel 8 (10b 0x4 1x6) SR: 80.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 119/7   P Kumar 8 (10b 1x6)
