1 October 2013 - night match (20-over match)
  Otago innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal NT Broom c †Samson b Watson 11 21 15 2 0 73.33
4.3 short ball from Watson and Otago are just not reading this pitch as Broom, looking to pull this, ends up lobbing it in the air, with Samson running in towards backward square leg to complete a rather straight forward catch 21/4
View dismissal HD Rutherford b Shukla 5 12 7 1 0 71.42
3.1 came in at a yorker length, with Rutherford looking to play through the leg side, but leaves a gap between pad and bat, with the ball finding the way through. First wicket down 16/1
View dismissal BB McCullum* lbw b Shukla 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
3.3 full length and McCullum's stay is not too long as he plays all around this. This one looked plumb, and the umpire confirms it straight way. Looks like it was a stroke of genius to include Shukla in today's squad 20/2
View dismissal DC de Boorder c & b Shukla 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
3.5 bouncer outside off and Derek, who must have misread the bounce and pace, ends up holding his bat in the air, cross-batted at that, with the ball deflecting off the face straight up into Shukla's waiting hands. Three wickets from Shukla now 20/3
View dismissal RN ten Doeschate lbw b Tambe 26 42 27 3 0 96.29
13.3 absolutely plumb, and Otago lose both batsmen that had threatened to lift Otago out of the mire. Tambe pushes one fuller and flatter, maybe a little faster and it straightens to hit RTD right in front. 81/6
View dismissal JDS Neesham c Watson b Cooper 32 33 25 4 1 128.00
12.2 no Neesham fairy tale tonight, with the bat at least. Cooper slows down a length ball outside off stump and the batsman is done in by the lack of pace. Aims a big hit over long on, but ends up hitting high into air and Shane Watson takes it a few metres out of the circle, close to where mid on would stand 74/5
NL McCullum not out 28 32 20 3 0 140.00
View dismissal IG Butler b Cooper 25 19 18 2 2 138.88
18.2 exact line again, just a bit fuller, as Butler this time successfully finds the inside edge onto the stumps. Butler was unaware at first, thinking he got away again, but looks back to find his wicket in disarray 120/7

View dismissal R Dravid* c NL McCullum b Beard 10 27 17 0 0 58.82
6.4 and the end to another struggle from Dravid. A fuller length ball, which turns away sharply, as Dravid tries to hit this square, but catches the edge. Nathan McCullum, waiting at point, makes an excellent catch running backwards, and leaps in time to grab it. 49/1
View dismissal AM Rahane c Broom b Neesham 52 72 48 7 0 108.33
16.6 low full toss and Neesham takes the big wicket, IPL price goes up once again as Rahane hits this straight at mid off, who accepts the chance gleefully 116/5
View dismissal SV Samson b Neesham 5 11 8 1 0 62.50
9.3 And the Neesh has been unleashed once again as Samson plays on a length ball. He really wasn't looking his useful self, and it tells with the mode of this dismissal 67/2
View dismissal SR Watson c †de Boorder b Neesham 2 6 9 0 0 22.22
11.3 back of a length, cutting in appreciably, and the Neesh strikes again as Watson almost seems to oblige with his bat in the air, catching the edge, and Derek de Boorder behind the stumps completing a smart take to his right. Big wicket for Otago, as Watson is the kind who can bludgeon any attack out of the stadium. Things got just a bit more interesting here in the Pink City... 71/3
View dismissal STR Binny c BB McCullum b Wagner 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
12.1 And he strikes straightaway! What are Royals doing? They looked home and dry early on, but now it's Binny who goes with an attempt drive through cover, which catches the outside edge, with the slip completing the take 72/4
BJ Hodge not out 52 34 23 5 3 226.08
View dismissal JP Faulkner b Wagner 2 7 4 0 0 50.00
18.2 Well, well, well. Right in the blockhole and its too good for Faulkner as Wagner cleans him up. Rajasthan Royals six down, and a glimmer of hope beckons for Otago Volts 130/6
