View dismissal G Gambhir c & b Patel 8 8 1 0 100.00
2.1 what a ripper by Munaf, this is an unbelievable catch, back of a length, Gambhir hits it back towards his good friend Munaf. This is going straight over the stumps at the non-striker's end, but Munaf stretches his right hand and intercepts perfectly. Munaf's fielding has been a revelation during this IPL 12/1
View dismissal V Sehwag* lbw b Patel 2 8 0 0 25.00
2.5 Sehwag almost walked, that's two in the same over for Munaf. This is short too, Sehwag jumps, looking to play it into the on side, but this one stays low, and catches him right in front. Sehwag knew all along he was gone. Munaf is carrying on from his last over against Mumbai 15/2
AB de Villiers not out 79 55 8 1 143.63
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Botha 33 41 1 0 80.48
16.4 this wicket should delay the late charge a bit, full, almost a yorker, around off, and DIlshan looks for the big sweep, misses completely, and leaves an open invitation from the stumps, which the ball accepts 102/3

View dismissal RJ Quiney c Nannes b Nehra 6 10 1 0 60.00
2.2 and another Rajasthan opener has picked out a boundary fielder, and there are only two allowed in the Powerplays. This is short and into the pads, he pulls it straight to Nannes at deep fine leg, who seems to have come in too far, but catches it well over his head 8/2
View dismissal GC Smith c Salvi b Nannes 0 4 0 0 0.00
1.5 Smith goes out on the upper cut, this was short and wide, and he cut over point, the thirdman is square. It's straight down Salvi's throat, who fumbles, but recovers well on the second attempt behind him 7/1
View dismissal NV Ojha c Sehwag b Salvi 9 17 1 0 52.94
6.2 this was on the cards, Ojha was looking to get outside the line way too often, this is a length ball, he makes room again, looks to go over extra, but doesn't get enough power. Simple catch too 24/3
View dismissal J Botha c Sehwag b Maharoof 37 31 3 0 119.35
15.5 Maharoof gets his revenge the next ball, bowls short, Botha looks to go over midwicket, and gets a top edge, which flies straight to Sehwag at midwicket. Rajasthan move closer to the end, or so it seems 98/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja c †Karthik b Salvi 24 18 3 0 133.33
12.1 and the change has worked, first ball gets a wicket, extra bounce there, back of a length, on the leg, angling across, Jadeja looks to run it down to third man, and gets the outside edge via the extra bounce 79/4
View dismissal YK Pathan c †Karthik b Maharoof 1 5 0 0 20.00
13.2 that's the biggie, slower ball, on the pads, Yusuf's eyes light up, looks to loft over the leg side, gets the back of the bat, and the ball swirls towards short third, three men converge, Karthik, running back, calls for it and takes it safely 82/5
View dismissal AS Raut b Mishra 11 13 0 0 84.61
16.1 Mishra continues, and Mishra cleans Raut up, he steps out too early, Mishra bowls a regular legbreak, the head is nowhere, swings wildly at it, and misses it completely. The ball doesn't spin much, and takes the off stump 99/7
View dismissal SK Warne* st †Karthik b Mishra 6 3 0 1 200.00
16.6 and third time lucky for Mishra, Warne steps out again, Mishra plays ball, flights it, and Warne looks to go straight, misses, and doesn't even make an attempt to go back in 107/9
View dismissal A Singh st †Karthik b Mishra 0 1 0 0 0.00
16.2 that's a tame stumping, big legbreak, angles in from wide of the stumps, spins across Singh, who has just about dragged him foot out, but makes no attempt to go back in, Karthik is alert to it and whips the bails off fast 99/8
