Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals

Kings XI Punjab won by 27 runs

2.1

Patel to Bopara, FOUR, loosener, gentle-paced, not much wrong with line and length, just short of a length, just outside off, and Bopara crashes it on the up, through covers

2.2

Patel to Bopara, no run, this is closer to off stump, same length, and Bopara plays it straight to mid-off

2.3

Patel to Bopara, 1 run, wider, fuller, moving away, and Bopara plays it with an open face to thirdman

2.4

Patel to Sangakkara, no run, now Munaf works some pace, 133ks, fullish, just outside off and straightening, Sanga defends into the off side

2.5

Patel to Sangakkara, no run, shortern, on the stumps, Sanga looks to cut, but is early into the shot, and inside-edges it onto the pitch

2.6

Patel to Sangakkara, no run, good line and length, just short of a length, on off stump, bowled from very close to the umpire, so it doesn't angle much, and there is no room for Sanga

Kings XI Punjab 12/1   MM Patel 1-0-5-0

6.1

Patel to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and Munaf strikes first ball too, what does Warnie tell them, four overs from this end, and three first deliveries have resulted in wickets. this was a superb delivery, length ball, on off, seamed away, and Yuvraj hung his rod, and Rawat caught the edge

Yuvraj Singh c †Rawat b Patel 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

6.2

6.4

Patel to Sangakkara, 1 run, on the target again, stump to stump, just short of a length, just a single to midwicket

Patel to Jayawardene, no run, pulls the length back again, it's a touch wide, and Mahela doesn't play at it

8.1

Patel to Jayawardene, 2 runs, short and wide, cut away hard by Mahela, Yusuf runs from thirdman, fumbles, but it doesn't cost them, they were taking two anyway

8.2

Patel to Jayawardene, OUT, No. 2 for Munaf, this is pure pressure, just short of a length, Mahela looks to loft over mid-off, the ball stops a touch, and Mahela has to check the shot, but he ends up lobbing it straight to mid-off

8.4

Patel to Pathan, no run, bang on target again, same delivery, a touch slower, and defneded off the back foot

8.5

Patel to Pathan, 3 runs, that's a misfield at midwicket by Kamran, this ball was a touch straighter, played towards midwicket where Kamran just dives over it, and costs two runs

8.6

Patel to Sangakkara, 1 run, fullish, but on the stumps, and played straight towards long-off, will be just a single

Kings XI Punjab 52/4   MM Patel 3-0-15-2

19.1

Patel to Chawla, FOUR, and Chawla has made up a bit for that run-out of Sanga with a fantastic shot, it was just short of a yorker, on off, and Chawla makes room and crisply hits it square of thirdman for four

Patel to Chawla, no run, and he is beaten by a slower ball this time, already down to front foot and is fooled

Patel to Chawla, no run, superb comeback by Munaf after that first-ball boundary, slower ball, 107ks, and Chawla is beaten again

19.4

Patel to Chawla, 2 wides, that's an ordinary call, it's like a schoolkid, Chawla has walked across outside off, and another slower ball, this cuts across that wide marker, and is given wide

19.4

Patel to Mota, no run, whoa, Munaf is diving, off hos own bowling, after having bowled a yorker, across in front of the non-striker, what an over, another dot ball

19.5

Patel to Mota, 1 run, full and stright again, just short of being a yorker, and only a single to long-on

19.6

Patel to Chawla, 2 runs, full and straight again, hit to the left of Munaf and he hurts himself by getting a hand on it: the pace has been taken off, and the batsmen can come back for two
