Indian Premier League - 40th match

Deccan Chargers v Rajasthan Royals

Deccan Chargers won by 53 runs

1.1

Vaas to Smith, OUT, sensational start for Chaminda Vaas, he gets Smith lbw first ball, Smith had taken a step out of the crease and missed the shortish ball, hit on the pads on a middle-stump line, but that hit him very high on the pad, well above the knee roll

GC Smith lbw b Vaas 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Rajasthan Royals 5/1   SA Asnodkar 4* (4b 1x4)   WPUJC Vaas 0.1-0-0-1

3.5

Vaas to Carseldine, OUT, Carseldine is out, a bizarre bit of cricket, Carseldine fails to connect with the ball again, it thuds into his back pad, Gilchrist collects this time and belts out an appeal for caught-behind, Carseldine doesn't realise the keeper has the ball and sets off for a single, Gilchrist whips off the bails and asks the square-leg umpire for a stumping, which is upheld

LA Carseldine st †Gilchrist b Vaas 8 (11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Rajasthan Royals 19/2   SA Asnodkar 8* (9b 2x4)   WPUJC Vaas 1.5-0-8-2

7.5

Ojha to Ojha, OUT, superb piece of fielding from Ravi Teja, Naman just chopped the ball towards point and was off for the single, Teja swoops on to it from backward point and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, Rajasthan in big trouble here

NV Ojha run out 16 (14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Rajasthan Royals 43/3   SA Asnodkar 16* (19b 3x4)   PP Ojha 0.5-0-8-0

11.2

Ojha to Pathan, OUT, Yusuf holes out, the delighted cries from Deccan show how much they value this wicket, it was a shortish ball from Ojha, Yusuf was down the pitch and he flat bats it toward long-off, where Dwayne Smith completes a simple catch

YK Pathan c Smith b Ojha 6 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Rajasthan Royals 74/4   SA Asnodkar 40* (33b 6x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 2.2-0-18-1

13.1

Sharma to Asnodkar, 1 run, OUT, and there's a wicket off the first ball, terrible running between the wickets, it was a half-tracker from Rohit, the Asnodkar swiped it to midwicket, Jadeja set off for the second, Asnodkar didn't, then Jadeja stopped, and Asnodkar started to run, Jadeja decides to run as well but Asnodakr was never going to make his ground after that much confusion

SA Asnodkar run out 44 (39b 6x4 1x6) SR: 112.82

Rajasthan Royals 83/5   RA Jadeja 5* (5b)   RG Sharma 0.1-0-1-0

13.4

Sharma to Raut, OUT, Rohit continues to be among the wickets, this was a much quicker ball, full and on legstump, Raut played all over it and the ball crashes into legstump, Rajasthan are into free fall here

AS Raut b Sharma 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 85/6   RA Jadeja 6* (6b)   RG Sharma 0.4-0-3-1

15.2

Sharma to Morkel, OUT, well, if Rohit Sharma keeps this up he'll soon be in the running for the Purple Cap, this was tossed up by him, well outside off, Morkel gets down on his knee and sweeps hard, a top-edge takes it t square leg where the waiting fielder takes a catch

M Morkel c Ravi Teja b Sharma 8 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Rajasthan Royals 96/7   RA Jadeja 8* (8b)   RG Sharma 1.2-0-5-2

15.4

Sharma to Warne, OUT, no need to bother, the golden arm of Rohit strikes again, Warne gave himself a ridiculous amount of room, Rohit didn't bother about that, he kept it on offstump, Warne misses, offstump is on the ground, the ball stayed a bit low

SK Warne b Sharma 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rajasthan Royals 97/8   RA Jadeja 9* (9b)   RG Sharma 1.4-0-6-3

16.3

Singh to Trivedi, OUT, pushes it fuller this time, Trivedi backs away, and doesn't get anywhere near that delivery, the legstump goes for a walk, only one more wicket needed by Deccan now

SK Trivedi b Singh 1 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Rajasthan Royals 98/9   RA Jadeja 9* (9b)   RP Singh 3.3-0-20-1

19.3

Ojha to Patel, OUT, and that's the end of that, another woeful mix-up has Munaf being run out, Munaf poked it towards backward point and set off for a single, though it had gone straight to the fielder, he was sent back but the throw was right over the stumps and Gilchrist takes off the bails with Munaf well short

MM Patel run out 5 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Rajasthan Royals 113/10   RA Jadeja 19* (20b)   PP Ojha 3.3-0-25-1
