3.1

Bravo to Smith, 1 run, back of a length outside off, there's cover for that shot though, cut it away, but straight to deep point

3.2

Bravo to Quiney, no run, back of a length outside off, chopped down to point this time, didn't time it well enough, there have been a few of those today

3.3

Bravo to Quiney, FOUR, picked it early, banged it short outside off, rocked back and pulled it over mid-on, got a lot of elevation on that but it rolled down to the ropes, Quiney's looking good

3.4

Bravo to Quiney, no run, back of a length outside off, tries to run it down, misses

3.5

Bravo to Quiney, 1 run, does so successfully this time, short and wide, guides it gently down to third man

13.1

Bravo to Jadeja, 1 run, short of a good length on the off, guided down to third man

13.2

Bravo to Quiney, 1 run, slower one bowled short on the off stump, had shaped himself up for the pull, adjusted well to the pace and paddled it to deep square leg

13.3

Bravo to Jadeja, SIX, massive six, short on the off, not too short but enough for him to cash in, pulled it away contemptuously over deep midwicket, sailed into the crowd, brought up to 100, they've got themselves into an excellent position now

13.4

Bravo to Jadeja, 1 run, bowled it short outside off this time, kept it down, bunted it to deep point for a single

13.5

Bravo to Quiney, SIX, the fine leg was brought up and he smashed it straight over his head, short outside leg, an atrocious ball considering the field he's set, rocked back and pulled it away for a flat six

13.6

Bravo to Quiney, FOUR, 19 off the over, the agony continues, fullish on leg stump, got the direction completely wrong off those two balls, flicked away over short fine to bring up his maiden IPL fifty

Rajasthan Royals 112/2   DJ Bravo 2-0-26-0
18.1

Bravo to Jadeja, no run, banged in short on middle, went for the pull but failed to make contact, another dot ball

18.2

Bravo to Jadeja, 1 wide, down the leg side this time, tried to hook it fine, missed but it's too high and the umpire immediately calls it a wide

18.2

Bravo to Jadeja, 1 wide, down the leg side again, tries to clip it fine, misses but won't mind the extra ball, good chance here to make up for some lost runs from the previous overs

18.2

Bravo to Jadeja, 1 run, slower one bowled on a good length outside off, made room and the bowler chased him,, worked it away to deep square leg

18.3

Bravo to Chitnis, OUT, easy catch to Nayar at third man, banged it short outside off, went for the upper-cut, seemed he had connected well initially but not really, landed safe in the palms of the fielder waiting to pouch it

SD Chitnis c Nayar b Bravo 6 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

18.4

Bravo to Jadeja, 1 run, short on middle, mistimes a pull wide of midwicket for a single

18.5

Bravo to Ojha, no run, slower one bowled fullish outside off, made room to cart that over cover, didn't connect, crucial dot balls these

18.6

Bravo to Ojha, no run, and again, this one was in the slot he picked it, had a swing but was nowhere near it, bowled at 103.7 kmph, Bravo recovered well after bowling those two wides

Rajasthan Royals 142/4   DJ Bravo 3-0-30-1
