Dinda to Asnodkar, OUT, awesome fielding by Dinda! Asnodkar hops to fend off a delivery aimed at his body and the ball drops in front of silly point, Asnodkar sets off, Ojha does the same but changes his mind, a confused Asnodkar turns around and tries to head back but Dinda sprints, dives and in one motion affects the direct hit, no need for the third umpire

10.5

Shukla to Pathan, OUT, it gets worse for Rajasthan! Yusuf takes a few paces down the pitch and squirts out a full delivery down to silly point, there's hesitation in the running but Yusuf sets off anyway, Dinda gathers the ball and breaks the stumps at the stro\iker's end and Yusuf, who turns around, is nowhere near the crease

YK Pathan run out 9 (15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Rajasthan Royals 62/6   RA Jadeja 1* (2b)   LR Shukla 0.5-0-1-0

11.2

Agarkar to Jadeja, OUT, terrible cricket from Rajasthan and Kolkata are loving this! He tucks it down to midwicket and sets off for a non-existent single, Henderson was always struggling and he wasn't quick enough for Hussey's direct hit

Rajasthan Royals 92/8   SK Warne 15* (21b 1x4)   SS Sarkar 2.2-0-12-1

19.3

Agarkar to Warne, OUT, the over gets better for Agarkar! He fires an inswinging yorker which just hits the edge of the base of the legstump and the bail takes its own sweet time to get off the groove, Warne didn't pick the yorker

SK Warne b Agarkar 18 (29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.06

Rajasthan Royals 99/9   MM Patel 4* (5b)   AB Agarkar 3.3-0-13-2
