    15.4 Parthiv unwisely attempts the reverse-sweep after coming out of the crease, he doesn't connect, the keeper collects and Yagnik removes the bails in a jiffy, Parthiv's fighting cameo is over 90/5
    7.4 Instant impact from Warne, pitched on middle and scooted low, spun just past off, Hodge backed away and looked to slash that through cove, gets a bottom-edge and drags it on to the stumps, Rajasthan in charge here 42/3
    15.3 Jadeja holes out, he was looking send the ball into orbit, sweeps hard at a length ball, top-edges it and Warne back-pedals to take a looping catch 90/4
    16.1 Kochi are crumbling, a length ball from Trivedi, Gomes wants to smash that over long-on, can't connect as well as he wants, and finds Watson waiting at long-on, Rajasthan get their sixth wicket, and it seems there will be no late onslaught 90/6
    16.6 and that's another one down for Kochi, a superb catch from Binny, Perera becomes another batsman holing out attempting a big hit, he can't get the distance either and Binny falls forward as he takes a low catch 92/7
    19.5 outside off, and Trivedi gets a third wicket, nicked to the keeper, Jadhav's troubled stay is over 108/9
    17.5 Kochi doing a house-of-cards impersonation, batsman looks to cheekily dab the ball past short third man, hits it in the air to Watson fielding there, that's the fifth wicket in little more than two overs 98/8
    not out
