2.2

Srivastava to Lumb, 1 run, overthrow, sloppy work by Theron at mid-on, looks to drop to cover and run, is sent back, but Bopara goes for a throw, and Theron at mid-on doesn't bend quick enough to get his body behind it

2.5

Srivastava to Lumb, 2 runs, whipped away off the pads, wide of fine leg, gets a couple, and this is Rajasthan's best opening stand this season

Sreesanth to Lumb, 1 run, premeditates a pull, Sree is too full for the shot, and he just manages a single off the bottom edge to fine leg

5.3

Sreesanth to Lumb, no run, pulled away, again too full for the shot, and hence he hits it straight to straight midwicket

5.4

Sreesanth to Lumb, 1 run, he is adamant on the pull shot, this more of a swat, to a length delivery, gets a single to square leg

6.1

Theron to Lumb, 2 runs, hit away first ball, length ball, nicely driven through the covers for two

6.3

Theron to Lumb, no run, nice offcutter, starts off, and nips away, beating the shot

Theron to Lumb, FOUR, too much width too often, and this time he crashes it past point, and fine of third man, top shot

Theron to Lumb, no run, slower ball, too full, he hits it straight and powerfully, Theron fields well in the followthrough

6.6

Theron to Lumb, 1 run, length ball, hit through covers, gets a single to sweeper-cover

Rajasthan Royals 60/1   MJ Lumb 41* (28b 7x4)

7.1

Chawla to Lumb, no run, goes for the slog sweep and is beaten first ball, no spin, and another big shout, Sanga keeps shouting for long, but it has hit him outside off, and is not spinning in either

7.2

Chawla to Lumb, OUT, 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

MJ Lumb st †Sangakkara b Chawla 41 (30b 7x4 0x6) SR: 136.66

Rajasthan Royals 60/2   MJ Lumb 41 (30b 7x4)
