Kulkarni to Smith, FOUR, nicely done, bowled short and wide, Quiney seized the length early, waited for it and cut it away well wide of a widish slip to the third-man boundary

2.3

Kulkarni to Smith, no run, back of a length outside off, chopped down straight to point this time, mistimed an attempted cut

2.4

Kulkarni to Smith, 1 run, dropped, a toughie, Duminy flings himself to his left, was sliced away by Smith, firmly hit but he was probably just a little late to react at point

2.5

Kulkarni to Quiney, no run, good length outside off, pushed away to cover

2.6

Kulkarni to Quiney, no run, zipped back in and beat him through the gate, skid off the pitch and Quiney was fortunate it bounced more than it should have

Rajasthan Royals 20/0   DS Kulkarni 2-0-13-0

4.1

Kulkarni to Smith, no run, back of a length outside off, tries to dab that down, misses

4.3

Kulkarni to Smith, 1 run, back of a length again, bunts it down to deep cover, a lot of mistimed cuts and slaps

4.4

Kulkarni to Quiney, no run, got an inside edge there, tried to flay it in front of cover, didn't connect well, caught the keeper on the shoe

4.5

Kulkarni to Quiney, FOUR, delicately done, he's a power player but is now showing his deft touches, full and wide, reached for it and opened the face at the last moment to steer it wide of third man

4.6

Kulkarni to Quiney, 3 runs, valiant effort from Malinga, straying on the pads, shouldn't be doing that especially when there's no fine leg, flicks it away fine, Malinga gives chase from square leg and drags it back in with an awkward slide, but an effective one

16.5

Kulkarni to Jadeja, 1 wide, too short, down the leg side, and too high as well, given a wide

16.5

16.6
