View dismissal PA Patel c Kamran Khan b Pathan 3 11 0 0 27.27
3.3 very tame dismissal, Patel tries to club a length delivery over the on side but swings way too early and the top edge goes down Kamran's throat at point 17/2
View dismissal ML Hayden b Pathan 1 2 0 0 50.00
1.1 brilliant captaincy to bring on Yusuf this early! Hayden gives a lot of room hoping to carve him inside out over the off side but the ball lands on middle, goes through straight and the dislodges the furniture, Hayden kind of backed out of the shot in the last minute 4/1
View dismissal SK Raina c Smith b Patel 98 55 10 5 178.18
19.4 and Raina walks back believing he's scored a ton! He makes room and scoops it over backward point and Smith runs back and hangs on to a really tough catch and falls forward 159/5
View dismissal S Badrinath st †Rawat b Warne 29 27 4 0 107.40
11.1 Warne tosses it up very slowly and invites Badri to charge down the track but the turn foxes him and it's an easy stumping for Rawat, Badri failed to get to the pitch of the ball and credit to Warne for cutting back on the pace 84/3
View dismissal JDP Oram c Mascarenhas b Patel 2 6 0 0 33.33
12.5 Mascarenhas hangs on to a difficult skier! Oram makes room to pound a straight six but he fails to make proper contact and the ball is skied down to wide long-off, Mascarenhas cups it over his head and tumbles backwards 88/4

  Rajasthan Royals innings (target: 165 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RJ Quiney lbw b Raina 28 31 4 0 90.32
9.3 that was fairly straightforward, comes round the wicket and the ball skids through and keeps low, he gets his front foot forward and is struck in line with the stumps, easy one for Gary Baxter 55/3
View dismissal GC Smith c Badrinath b Morkel 2 5 0 0 40.00
1.6 one down! Albie tempts Smith into a false stroke this time as he bowls one wide outside the off stump. Smith goes for the drive and gets a thick outside edge to Badrinath manning the point region. Not the start Royals wanted 9/1
View dismissal SA Asnodkar hit wicket b Morkel 10 8 0 1 125.00
5.3 it's a hitwicket and a catch! Very unusual dismissal indeed, he pulls a short delivery and knocks the stumps with his bat on the follow through, Tyagi takes the catch at square leg probably not realising that Asnodkar had whacked his stumps 29/2
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Hayden b Balaji 37 33 2 1 112.12
17.3 the man with the orange cap takes the skier, Jadeja attempts a massive slog which doesn't come off well, he picks it from outside off, gets on his knee and Hayden takes a skier at deep square leg, that was in the air for quite a while 114/6
View dismissal YK Pathan c Raina b Balaji 20 13 3 0 153.84
12.6 Balaji holds the length back slightly and Yusuf can't resist the temptation to go over the top, he clubs it hard and the ball travels flat and lands in Raina's safe hands at long-off 86/4
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas c Muralitharan b Oram 8 8 1 0 100.00
14.6 Oram gets away with a full toss, Mascarenhas reaches out and ends up chipping it straight to Murali at short cover, not a wicket taking delivery and the batsman will regret that missed chance 98/5
View dismissal SK Warne* c Badrinath b Balaji 3 9 0 0 33.33
17.6 another one bites the dust and Chennai pretty much have this wrapped up, Warne tries to go over the top but he fails to get the elevation to clear long-off, Badri takes it easily 117/7
M Rawat not out 8 6 1 0 133.33
View dismissal MM Patel c †Patel b Oram 0 1 0 0 0.00
18.1 Oram drops the ball short on seeing Munaf give room, he doesn't quite know what to do and he ends up handing a tame edge to Parthiv, Munaf walks 117/8
View dismissal SK Trivedi c Raina b Balaji 2 3 0 0 66.66
19.3 Raina rounds off a dream evening! Trivedi goes for the slog and the ball swirls in the air for an eternity before falling into Raina's hands at long-on 126/10
