3.5

Sreesanth to Fazal, 1 no ball, second no-ball for Sree, and again the actual delivery is a gem, cutting him in two with the inswing, but he has overstepped

3.5

Sreesanth to Fazal, 1 run, gets out of the jail with another short-pitched delivery, into his ribs, and the second free-hits gets RR only a single - two free-hits for just one run so far

5.6

Sreesanth to Fazal, no run, stayed back to a full delivery, for a milisecond, Sree must have thought of an lbw, but he got his bat down in time

8.2

Srivastava to Fazal, FOUR, very nice shot, exploits the square third man, opens the face very late and gets four

8.3

Srivastava to Fazal, 1 run, walks across the stumps, exposing all three sticks, slower ball comes out, drops into the leg side and runs, Yusuf wants two but is rightly sent back

12.3

Srivastava to Fazal, no run, looks for the pull but it is onto him too fast, and it goes towards mid-off

12.4

Srivastava to Fazal, 1 wide, way wide outside off, surprisingly no appeal from Sanga this time

12.4

Srivastava to Fazal, 1 leg bye, oh sorry, spoke too soon, Shalabh belts out a huge shout from the deepest part of his gut, as he has missed a scoop shot way way outside off

Rajasthan Royals 105/2   FY Fazal 21* (21b 1x4 1x6)
13.3

Yuvraj Singh to Fazal, 1 run, This one is for Kingfisher Fair Play! Hit powerfully back at him and Yuvraj takes his hands out of the way and the ball hits the stumps, but Punjab appeal for a run-out. Replays reveal everything, brothers. It was just an instinctive appeal I feel, not intentional foul play. Will give him benefit of doubt. There is no way there was a touch on it, though

Yuvraj Singh to Fazal, 1 run, short, pulled away to deep midwicket

Rajasthan Royals 119/3   FY Fazal 23* (23b 1x4 1x6)

Rajasthan Royals 137/3   FY Fazal 25* (25b 1x4 1x6)
16.3

Theron to Fazal, no run, sees him back away, angles it across him, and it's far enough of the batsman, but not far enough to be called wide

16.4

Theron to Fazal, no run, looks to manufacture the scoop over short fine, and he bowls full and slow, and Faiz misses - no runs off the bat so far in this over

16.5

Theron to Fazal, 1 run, short, cut away to sweeper-cover

Rajasthan Royals 146/3   FY Fazal 26* (28b 1x4 1x6)

Theron to Fazal, no run, and again he has missed a scoop shot, he is good down the ground, but he has missed at least three of those cute shots

19.1

Pathan to Fazal, 1 run, OUT, 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
