Indian Premier League - 10th match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 10 wickets (with 56 balls remaining)

5.1

Kallis to Ojha, OUT, and he strikes immediately! Tight and short of a length on offstump and Ojha is desperate to break free. Goes for that carve over covers again, hits high on the bat, and loops to Robin Uthappa at cover for a simple catch

NV Ojha c Uthappa b Kallis 16 (18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Rajasthan Royals 27/1   MJ Lumb 8* (13b 1x4)   JH Kallis 0.1-0-0-1

6.2

Kumble to Lumb, OUT, he's a goner! Kumble does Lumb in with a beauty. Slow looped googly, around 86 kph, Lumb is drawn out and left stranded by the flight and turn away from him. Boucher does the rest. The openers are gone.

MJ Lumb st †Boucher b Kumble 10 (18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Rajasthan Royals 31/2   DR Martyn 1* (3b)   A Kumble 0.2-0-0-1

7.5

Kallis to Jhunjhunwala, OUT, he has his man this time! Kallis has his karma! Cuts in from a length outside off, creeps in off the inside edge, through the gap between bat and pad, and disturbs the stumps. Kallis is pleased, Kumble is pumped, Rajasthan are in trouble!

AA Jhunjhunwala b Kallis 5 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Rajasthan Royals 38/3   DR Martyn 3* (5b)   JH Kallis 1.5-0-9-2

14.1

Kumble to Martyn, OUT, he's a goner! Bangalore can't catch Yusuf, but can run him out! Tip and run towards cover by Martyn, Virat Kohli swoops in and throws down the stumps in one silken smooth action. Third umpire called into action, but Yusuf knew he was caught short. Well done Kohli!

YK Pathan run out 26 (24b 1x4 2x6) SR: 108.33

Rajasthan Royals 75/4   DR Martyn 13* (19b)   A Kumble 2.1-0-6-1

16.2

Kumar to Martyn, OUT, and that's the end of that. Praveen comes back with an inch-perfect yorker that made up for lack of pace, with accuracy. Marto misses, Praveen hits, see you later.

DR Martyn b Kumar 19 (24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 79.16

Rajasthan Royals 85/5   P Dogra 3* (8b)   P Kumar 2.2-0-15-1

16.3

Kumar to Narwal, OUT, another bouncer, another wicket! Dug in by Praveen, Narwal was in no position, but went through with the pull. Manish pandey ran in a long way from fine leg, and juggled a couple of times before holding on.

S Narwal c Pandey b Kumar 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rajasthan Royals 85/6   P Dogra 3* (8b)   P Kumar 2.3-0-15-2

16.4

Kumar to Dogra, OUT, three in three for Praveen!!! First hat-trick of IPL 2010! Straight and as fast as Praveen can be, and it is good enough for Dogra. Middle stump is out of the ground and Praveen roars! Rajasthan going down in a hurry here.

P Dogra b Kumar 3 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Rajasthan Royals 85/7   SK Warne 0* (0b)   P Kumar 2.4-0-15-3

19.1

Kumble to Warne, OUT, Hohoho, Jumbo wins the battle of the great leggies! Defeats Warne's attempted pull with a straight fast ball and disturbs timber.

SK Warne b Kumble 4 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Rajasthan Royals 91/8   M Morkel 2* (8b)   A Kumble 3.1-0-9-2

19.4

Kumble to Morkel, OUT, gotcha! Kumble deceives Morne all ends up, the spin eludes the outside edge and Morne's backfoot goes very slightly outside his crease. Boucher is waiting behind and whips off the bails.

M Morkel st †Boucher b Kumble 2 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Rajasthan Royals 92/9   MM Patel 0* (2b)   A Kumble 3.4-0-9-3

19.5

Kumble to Trivedi, OUT, and another run-out puts Rajasthan out of their misery. Full looping ball on legstump, played away by Munaf straight to short fine, where Dravid picks and fires in a good throw. Enough time for Boucher to collect and whip the bails. Enough certainty for umpire Harper to give it out without asking for camera assistance.

MM Patel run out 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rajasthan Royals 92/10   SK Trivedi 0* (1b)   A Kumble 3.5-0-9-3
