Indian Premier League - 19th match

Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals won by 31 runs

1.1

Sreesanth to Ojha, 1 no ball, good start - spoke too soon. He is actually too good with the ball straightening outside off and beating Ojha, but he has also over-stepped. Why am I not surprised?

1.1

Sreesanth to Ojha, no run, comes back well, with a bouncer, 138ks, beats him again. You have done well if you manage to beat a batsman on a free hit, and not by bowling a wide

1.2

Sreesanth to Ojha, no run, that's three in three, what a ripper of a legcutter, pitches back of a length, just outside off, and moves ever so slightly away, squaring him up

1.3

Sreesanth to Ojha, FOUR, Oh Sree, couldn't bowl four good deliveries in a row, goes short and wide, and is cut away, and Sangakkara has removed the second slip, which came in just one ball ago

1.4

Sreesanth to Ojha, no run, comes back well, beats him with a full, away-swinging delivery, and Sangakkara belts out a big annoying appeal, even after umpire has said no he keeps on shouting

1.5

Sreesanth to Ojha, FOUR, shot of the night so far, just meets a length ball outside off with an open face, and the ball speeds across, past cover-point, third man, who is very square, has no chance

1.6

Sreesanth to Ojha, no run, back of a length, into the pads, defended

Rajasthan Royals 17/0   S Sreesanth 1-0-9-0

3.1

Sreesanth to Lumb, no run, on target, fullish, swinging in to Lumb, defended back to the bowler

3.2

Sreesanth to Lumb, FOUR, well played, effective shot, gives him the charge, and gets under a shortish delivery to loft it over point, gets enough on it to beat the in-ring

3.3

Sreesanth to Lumb, 1 run, on the pads, and worked away for an easy single

3.4

Sreesanth to Ojha, OUT, 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

NV Ojha c Srivastava b Sreesanth 13 (10b 3x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

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

3.6

Sreesanth to Lumb, no run, wafts outside off, and he plays way outside the line of the delivery

Rajasthan Royals 37/1   S Sreesanth 2-0-16-1

5.1

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

5.2

Sreesanth to Fazal, 1 run, nicely chopped away to third man

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

5.5

Sreesanth to Fazal, 1 wide, big wide down the leg side

5.5

Sreesanth to Fazal, no run, looks to run this down to third man, but it's not wide enough, gets an inside edge onto the pad, another amusing appeal from Punjab

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

Rajasthan Royals 53/1   S Sreesanth 3-0-20-1
