    18.1 Morkel outstanding IPL continues, the 19th over changed the game two days ago, this time he starts the 19th with the wicket of Dravid, a back of length ball that Dravid wanted to club but ended up inside-eding onto his pad and then the stumps 128/6
    8.4 the reverse sweep goes wrong, what a way for such a good partnership to end. He hits it from outside leg stump to Sehwag at point, easy catch 71/1
    10.5 huge wicket this, Watto is gone as he looks to swipe that towards his favourite midwicket region, that stayed lower than Watson expected and sneaked under his bat, off stump is on the ground, Negi is jumping for joy 87/2
    11.4 Rajasthan are three down, and rapidly losing their way, Shah is the man who's gone this time, looking for a cute shot over short fine leg,doesn't get enough on it, off the glove I think, and the ball lobs towards the keeper, easy as they come for the keeper 90/3
    12.2 Negi's dream day continues, Hodge is the man to go, and this is turning into an alarming collapse for Rajasthan, looking to smash that from outside off, off the back foot, couldn't keep it low and that flies to backward point, and what seemed a formidable middle order of Shah, Watson and Hodge has folded in the space of ten deliveries 93/4
    12.6 Negi gets four, 4 for 18 for Negi, easily the best bowling figures for the 19-year-old, Menaria was looking to power that off the back foot, a bit of a top edge on that and the ball balloons towards Pietersen at long-on, easy take for him and Rajasthan have slumped from 87 for 1 to 95 for 5, that was the last ball of Negi's spell as well, not a bad way to finish 95/5

    0.3 big wicket, Chavan strikes in the middle over, just the start a demoralised Rajasthan wanted, Jayawardene was caught on the crease as he looked to tuck that to the leg side, that looked to be heading for middle stump, the umpire didn't have to think twice, Mahela gone for a duck 0/1
    14.4 Sehwag is gone, he has holed out to backward point, he wanted to carve that over the off side, an ambitious shot against the wiles of Hogg, but in this mood Sehwag can pull off anything, this time though he can't get it past Dravid at backward point 131/4
    10.2 Watson has struck, seems to be too late for Rajasthan, pitched up by Watson, KP looks to smash that over long-off, he can't and he's gone for 36, that's the end of his IPL 96/2
    11.4 Hogg removes Taylor, that one spins away from him, Taylor goes for the muscular sweep, top-edges that and it doesn't go too far, goes high and results in a simple catch for the keeper 106/3
