Indian Premier League, 19th match: Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals at Mohali, Mar 24, 2010
Rajasthan Royals won by 31 runs
24 March 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Tait to Sangakkara, OUT, 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

KC Sangakkara c Fazal b Tait 29 (13b 6x4 0x6) SR: 223.07

Kings XI Punjab 41/1   RS Bopara 11* (11b)   SW Tait 2-0-19-1

Warne to Bisla, OUT, 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

MS Bisla c Lumb b Warne 35 (18b 4x4 2x6) SR: 194.44

Kings XI Punjab 85/2   RS Bopara 18* (16b 1x4)   SK Warne 1.5-0-21-1

Trivedi to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, 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

Yuvraj Singh c Fazal b Trivedi 15 (13b 0x4 1x6) SR: 115.38

Kings XI Punjab 107/3   RS Bopara 23* (22b 1x4)   SK Trivedi 3-0-14-1

Patel to Bopara, OUT, 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

RS Bopara c Trivedi b Patel 25 (26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 96.15

Kings XI Punjab 113/4   DPMD Jayawardene 4* (5b)   MM Patel 3.3-0-41-1

Patel to Jayawardene, OUT, 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

IK Pathan run out 1 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 115/5   DPMD Jayawardene 5* (7b)   MM Patel 4-0-43-1

Pathan to Kaif, OUT, 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

M Kaif lbw b Pathan 8 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 126/6   DPMD Jayawardene 8* (10b)   YK Pathan 0.5-0-4-1

Pathan to Chawla, OUT, Chawla comes down the track, looking to hit it over midwicket, slices it to short third where Tait takes the catch

PP Chawla c Tait b Pathan 8 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kings XI Punjab 136/7   DPMD Jayawardene 10* (12b)   YK Pathan 1.3-0-7-2

Tait to Theron, OUT, and another one bites the dust! bouncer, sharp one, and Theron gets the toe-end of the bat, lobbing it to mid-off

J Theron c Patel b Tait 2 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Kings XI Punjab 140/8   DPMD Jayawardene 12* (15b)   SW Tait 2.4-0-21-2

Trivedi to Jayawardene, OUT, 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

DPMD Jayawardene c Jhunjhunwala b Trivedi 23 (22b 0x4 1x6) SR: 104.54

Kings XI Punjab 152/9   S Sreesanth 0* (1b)   SK Trivedi 3.5-0-25-2

Tait to Srivastava, OUT, 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

SJ Srivastava b Tait 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kings XI Punjab 152/10   S Sreesanth 0* (2b)   SW Tait 3.1-0-22-3
