Played at Newlands, Cape Town (neutral venue)
23 April 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Anureet Singh to Valthaty, OUT, nice judgement by Ishant at the boundary, it's short and wide and asking to be slashed hard but the upper cut fails to get the required distance, Ishant runs from third man towards deep point and hangs on to it

PC Valthaty c Sharma b Anureet Singh 5 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Rajasthan Royals 8/1   GC Smith 2* (5b)   Anureet Singh 1-0-4-1

Sharma to Quiney, OUT, over confidence! Ishant dishes it out wide outside off and Quiney tries to slam him square of the wicket but gets a thick outside edge to Gayle at first slip

RJ Quiney c Gayle b Sharma 6 (2b 0x4 1x6) SR: 300.00

Rajasthan Royals 14/2   GC Smith 2* (5b)   I Sharma 1.2-0-9-1

Mendis to Smith, OUT, Smith looked in trouble straightaway! He tries to force a full ball to the on side but the ball clips his pad in front of the stumps and lobs low to Gayle at first slip, Mendis goes up for the lbw and Mark Benson checks with his colleague if Gayle took it cleanly, replays confirmed that Smith edged the ball onto his pads, so he's out caught

GC Smith c Gayle b Mendis 15 (21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Rajasthan Royals 70/3   YK Pathan 41* (19b 6x4 2x6)   BAW Mendis 1.1-0-6-1

Mendis to Pathan, OUT, very poor shot by the well-set Pathan, he tries to slog him against the spin and gets a thick top edge, Yashpal takes the skier easily at point

YK Pathan c Yashpal Singh b Mendis 42 (21b 6x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

Rajasthan Royals 73/4   RA Jadeja 2* (3b)   BAW Mendis 2-0-9-2

Sharma to Jadeja, OUT, goes for a hug heave over the on side but mis-hits it, stays rooted to the crease and gets a thick top edge, Yashpal fixes his gaze on the ball and takes the catch comfortably at short mid-off

RA Jadeja c Yashpal Singh b Sharma 22 (26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 84.61

Rajasthan Royals 112/5   AD Mascarenhas 17* (21b 1x4)   I Sharma 3.2-0-29-2

Anureet Singh to Mascarenhas, OUT, Mascarenhas gives himself room but the bowler cranks up the pace and bowls a yorker which sends the offstump back by a few yards, good over, save for the wides

AD Mascarenhas b Anureet Singh 27 (28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 96.42

Rajasthan Royals 125/6   AS Raut 1* (3b)   Anureet Singh 3-0-17-2
