    9.3 full delivery again and it does the trick for Aravind this time. Watson has smacked this, flat and hard to long-off. It was straight down AB de VIlliers' throat and he gobbled that up. 73/1
    9.5 What an over for Aravind! Blink and you will miss a wicket. He has kept it full and Dravid looked to smack it to long-off but hit it straight back to Aravind, who had to juggle a few times but held on. 73/2
    13.3 not very clever from Johan Botha, left Rahane high and dry. He pulls out the reverse sweep again and hit to AB de Villiers at point while setting off the run immediately. Rahane has said no, but Botha has run past him and is at the none-strikers end when the throw comes in to the 'keeper. Rahane is stranded and has to walk back. 102/3
    16.3 Aravind does it again and for the third time, it's with a full delivery. Seamed away a little bit and Botha got a massive nick. Kartik behind the stumps was jubilant immediately and it didn't take much for the umpire to raise his finger. 122/4
    17.2 Langers does it and he is pointing to AB in celebration. Slower ball and taylor slog swept to Kaif at deep backward square. He was looking to clear the rope but didnt get enough height on it 124/5
    18.3 It's coming apart for Rajasthan. Menaria hits that down Kaif's throat at ling-on. Nothing spectacular about the catch but there didn't need to be. Too easy for Kaif and not enough meat on it from Menaria 133/6
