  Rajasthan Royals innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson b Shukla 44 26 7 1 169.23
7.3 big wicket, slower short one, Watson waits and waits before pulling, and it has a loopy sort of bounce, and dips as it reaches, and Watson misses it altogether 59/1
View dismissal NV Ojha c Shukla b Unadkat 18 22 3 0 81.81
8.4 Shukla is everywhere! Lovely catch at point, diving full length to his left after this was crashed off the back foot by Ojha. It was a poor delivery, short and wide, but Shukla threw himself at it, full length 69/2
View dismissal YK Pathan c Ganguly b Unadkat 8 9 1 0 88.88
10.2 As good as a catch as Ganguly has ever taken! And it is some take! Yusuf gets too much under this attempted six off a slower ball, and skies it towards deep midwicket, and Ganguly runs back from midwicket, keeps his eye on it, and then in the final instance sees it is falling away, and then dives to complete the stunner 74/3
View dismissal AJ Finch b Bond 21 21 0 1 100.00
14.2 he is early into the pull again, and he has dragged this one from wide outside off onto the stumps, off the bottom edge. It;s not a slower one either, 138ks, Kolkata have made a big comeback into this match 101/5
View dismissal AC Voges c Kartik b Dinda 8 7 1 0 114.28
13.3 no mistake with this one, done in by a slower one! Is looking for a loft, but ends up skying it towards wide long-on, and Kartik completes a safe catch 98/4
View dismissal AS Raut c Gayle b Unadkat 2 4 0 0 50.00
15.5 another superb catch. By Gayle this time. Raut is frustrated and he jumps out of the track, and is done in by yet another slower delivery. Gayle runs backwards from mid-off and takes a nice head-high catch 103/6
View dismissal P Dogra b Kartik 8 12 0 0 66.66
17.4 Rajasthan are falling apart here. Tries to reverse-hit, the ball pitches in the rough outside what would be the leg stump, turns away, beats him, and takes out the middle stump 115/7
View dismissal FY Fazal run out (Unadkat/†McCullum) 13 13 1 0 100.00
19.3 from Dinda, good work from Unadkat and McCullum. They risk a second to deep square leg, and Unadkat throws flat and slightly off the mark. McCullum comes forward to make up for the throw, collects it in front of his body, and reverse-flicks the bails off to find his short by inches 126/8
SK Warne* not out 3 4 0 0 75.00
View dismissal SK Trivedi c Unadkat b Dinda 4 2 1 0 200.00
19.5 Mother of all ironies. Sid Trivedi getting out to a slower one. Ends up skying it towards midwicket and Unadkat gets under it and completes the catch even as he takes a tumble 130/9

2.3 he has hit a juicy leg-side full toss straight down Watson's throat at square leg. Lucky dismissal if ever there was one 21/1

2.5 timber! Kamran has turned this game around. For the moment at least. Gayle looks to defend, playing for the swing, and this one goes in with the angle, and squeezes through the bat-pad gap 22/2
