    12.3 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 113/4
    3.6 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 41/1
    7.5 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 85/2
    10.6 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 107/3
    18.5 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 152/9
    12.6 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 115/5
    14.5 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 126/6
    16.3 Chawla comes down the track, looking to hit it over midwicket, slices it to short third where Tait takes the catch 136/7
    17.4 and another one bites the dust! bouncer, sharp one, and Theron gets the toe-end of the bat, lobbing it to mid-off 140/8
    not out
    19.1 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 152/10
