View dismissal MJ Lumb st †Sangakkara b Chawla 41 30 7 0 136.66
7.2 Sanga may not be good at appealing, but he has pulled of a winner of a stumping here. Good bowling by Piyush too. He saw Lumb is not picking the spin, and he floats a googly outside off, drawing him into the shot, then beating him, and Sanga pounces on the slightest bit of overbalancing and whips the bails off during the two seconds that his foot is in the air 60/2
View dismissal NV Ojha c Srivastava b Sreesanth 13 10 3 0 130.00
3.4 soft dismissal, against the run of play, hits a length delivery straight down the lap of mid-on, and Sree gives him a nice little send-off 35/1
View dismissal FY Fazal run out (Chawla) 45 38 5 1 118.42
19.1 from Pathan, goes for a non-existent double after hitting it straight to long-off, Piyush goes for the right end, the striker's, and also hits the stumps direct. Would have been run out even if this was not a direct-hit 171/4
View dismissal YK Pathan c Yuvraj Singh b Srivastava 28 19 1 1 147.36
12.6 slower ball does Yusuf in! Hasn't yet hit a clean Yusuf shot, and gives this one everything, and is early into the shot, and skies it down the ground, Yuvraj takes a safe catch running in 111/3
AC Voges not out 45 24 5 1 187.50
View dismissal P Dogra run out (Chawla/Pathan) 1 1 0 0 100.00
19.5 Pathan to Voges, Dogra sacrifices his wicket to keep Voges on strike, hit down to long-on, but they come back for two, and Piyush keeps his head again, throwing it right over the stumps to Irfan 179/5

  Kings XI Punjab innings (target: 184 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RS Bopara c Trivedi b Patel 25 26 1 0 96.15
12.3 Munna strikes! another slower ball gets them a wicket! Two settled batsmen play loose shots. Walks down the wicket, Munaf bowls a slower one that grips at him, and despite a checked shot it flies to the right of mid-on where Sid T takes a nice catch. Bopara is livid. And for a change, no send-off from a bowler, despite their earlier spat in the initial overs 113/4
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Fazal b Tait 29 13 6 0 223.07
3.6 Tait gets his own back! Short again, higher this time, and Sanga makes room and goes for the upper-cut, but doesn't put too much power into it, and hits it straight down third man's throat. No room was the critical factor there 41/1
View dismissal MS Bisla c Lumb b Warne 35 18 4 2 194.44
7.5 smart dismissal, Warne has a fielder placed for the slog! Legspinner bowling with a deep midwicket! He tosses it up outside off, and Bisla slog-sweeps, and Lumb doesn't have to move an inch. Nonetheless that cameo will hurt Rajasthan 85/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Fazal b Trivedi 15 13 0 1 115.38
10.6 Yuvraj has eased Lumb's pain here, doesn't read a slower ball, and skies it towards long-on, and Faiz takes this overhead catch easily, running back from mid-on 107/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Jhunjhunwala b Trivedi 23 22 0 1 104.54
18.5 gone! no options really than to go after everything, and he goes straight down the ground, but gets too much under it and skies it to long-on 152/9
View dismissal IK Pathan run out (Jhunjhunwala) 1 1 0 0 100.00
12.6 Patel to Jayawardene, what an incredible slower ball and what incredible work from Jhunjhunwala running in from cover! Jayawardene is taken by surprise big time, and it grips at him, lobs just over Munaf who can't back-pedal fast enough but Jhunjhunwala charges from cover and under-arm-flicks and finds a backing-up Irfan short. Top work 115/5
View dismissal M Kaif lbw b Pathan 8 8 1 0 100.00
14.5 Kaif is given this time! sweeping across the line, misses, Yusuf is straight enough, and Umpire Doctrove upholds the appeal despite the stride, which was the only thing that could have saved him. Hawk-eye says middle stump would have been hit 126/6
View dismissal PP Chawla c Tait b Pathan 8 8 1 0 100.00
16.3 Chawla comes down the track, looking to hit it over midwicket, slices it to short third where Tait takes the catch 136/7
View dismissal J Theron c Patel b Tait 2 4 0 0 50.00
17.4 and another one bites the dust! bouncer, sharp one, and Theron gets the toe-end of the bat, lobbing it to mid-off 140/8

View dismissal SJ Srivastava b Tait 0 1 0 0 0.00
19.1 Tait ends it with a full and straight delivery, middle and leg stump gone, superb finish for Rajasthan after they were getting blown away at one time during the defence 152/10
