9 May 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Morkel to Ojha, OUT, timber, bowled at around 137 kmph, bowled on a length on middle and off, moved away a touch, Ojha had made room, too much in hindsight and failed to make contact as it zipped through to crash into offstump.

NV Ojha b Morkel 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rajasthan Royals 1/1   GC Smith 1* (1b)   JA Morkel 0.3-0-1-1

Muralitharan to Asnodkar, OUT, swung across the line and was trapped in front, came round the wicket, was the overspinner, landed fullish on middle and leg, tried to sweep it square, was rapped on the pads and Dharmasena had no doubt

SA Asnodkar lbw b Muralitharan 26 (25b 3x4 1x6) SR: 104.00

Rajasthan Royals 54/2   GC Smith 25* (26b 2x4)   M Muralitharan 1.5-0-13-1

Muralitharan to Smith, OUT, stumped, didn't even appeal, Smith walked, spun away just as he tried to connect a slog-sweep, missed, and Dhoni dislodged the bails pretty quickly, Smith was outside the crease well after the stumps were disturbed

GC Smith st †Dhoni b Muralitharan 30 (33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

Rajasthan Royals 75/3   RA Jadeja 16* (14b 2x4)   M Muralitharan 3.2-0-22-2

Balaji to Jadeja, OUT, slower one bowled full outside off, landed full, he picked it well, made room to slice it to Raina at point, was dying on him but he dived forward to cup that inches from the ground, well done

RA Jadeja c Raina b Balaji 27 (19b 3x4 1x6) SR: 142.10

Rajasthan Royals 92/4   YK Pathan 6* (6b 1x6)   L Balaji 1.1-0-3-1

Jakati to Pathan, OUT, sucked him in, flighted it on the off, landed full, went for the slog-sweep well in front of square, the intended area was long-on and he got the direction right but way more elevation than he would have wanted, Oram judged it well and for a moment it seemed he would go over the boundary but retained his balance to take it inches inside the ropes

YK Pathan c Oram b Jakati 7 (11b 0x4 1x6) SR: 63.63

Rajasthan Royals 100/5   LA Carseldine 6* (5b 1x4)   SB Jakati 2.5-0-24-1

Raina to Raut, OUT, run out, Balaji, you beauty, dropped it short of him at cover and called for a single, Carseldine at the non-striker's end had backed up too far by the time Raut sent him back, Balaji waited, took aim and threw down the stumps to find him miles short

LA Carseldine run out 9 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Rajasthan Royals 104/6   AS Raut 1* (2b)   SK Raina 2.4-0-15-0

Jakati to Raut, OUT, stumped, drew him out of the crease with the flight, spun away as he tried to smack that inside-out over cover, missed and Dhoni had no difficulty clipping the bails, the batsman didn't even bother making it back

AS Raut st †Dhoni b Jakati 7 (5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

Rajasthan Royals 111/7   SK Warne 1* (1b)   SB Jakati 3.2-0-26-2
