    4.2 finally something goes Rajasthan's way! Gilchrist goes for another powerful hit, doesn't get the elevation and Tait takes the easy catch at mid-on. What relief for rajasthan 67/1
    9.4 the have broken the code! They have dismissed Valthaty! No. 50 in IPL for Warner. And what revs on this one. Valthaty comes down the track looking for another six, but the dip leaves him ever so short of the pitch of the ball, and he hits this off the lower part of the bat. Tait collects the mis-hit at long-off 105/2
    18.1 and that frustration shows as Marsh gets a top edge on this pull off the front foot. Watson calls for it, and takes it without trouble. Rajasthan are back momentarily 183/5
    15.6 Tait finally gets a deserved wicket... it's shortish but not wide, and it's fast and bounces more than expected. The edge is taken by the keeper, and then the umpire's finger comes up ever so slowly as Karthik starts to walk and then stops 175/3
    16.5 Nayar is gone. He looked to drop and run, and then stopped. Then he saw Marsh charging at him and realised it would be criminal to turn his back at Marsh, and went for the single anyway. That stutter, though, cost him his wicket 178/4
    19.1 and he gets another wicket, not with the best ball he has bowled, though. This was short, and gentle in pace when compared to Tait's usual pace, but McLaren pulls it straight down deep midwicket's lap 190/6

    19.6 finishes it off with a full delivery, the off stump goes towards the keeper. Chawla makes room, and misses, and the poor off stump... 195/7

    2.6 bowled him! Another very low full toss, beats Asnodkar who is looking to make room again, and hits the leg stump 10 inches up 18/2
    1.6 frustration was conspicuous as Dravid looked to make room, Harris bowled the yorker/low full toss, and all Dravid managed was an inside edge onto the stumps 12/1
    6.3 Is that the game? Shrewd slower short ball. Watson sets himself up for a six over midwicket, but the fall never arrives, and when it does it takes the top edge. Caught around mid-on area 47/3
    12.6 Gone! Length ball, he had to go for it, got under it, but not enough, and doesn't get enough height, thus hitting it straight down long-on's throat 99/5
    7.6 Chawla has worked Taylor. Googly from wide of the crease, Taylor caught on the crease, hit in front of leg, and is given. Looked harsh live time because I thought it was missing leg, but Taylor was so deep in the crease it made it easier for Reiffel. Replays show it would have kissed the outside of the leg stump 49/4
    17.1 hit straight down long-on's throat, and Bhatt celebrates as if he has taken Tendulkar's wicket with one run needed off the last ball. In his mind he must be bowling the Super Over 124/6
    19.1 wicket No. 2 for Bhatt, as Raut toe-ends this high towards point for a simple catch. it was just a wild slog 140/7
