    11.5 Dravid holes out finally. Gets too far under a length ball, but doesn't get much power behind it. Caught at long-off, but Dravid has set Royals on their way 98/1
    15.6 Rahul Sharma takes a good catch. Rahane tries to manufacture one shot too many. This is a wide length ball, Rahane looks to loft this over square leg, and is playing too far away from his body. The top edge goes high, and swirls away from Sharma at the last moment, but he puts the dive in to send Rahane back 136/3
    14.5 Watson is gone now. Looks to cut a shortish delivery, there is no room, and he ends up playing on 128/2
    17.1 Hodge wants the no-ball call. A full toss from Parnell, Hodge mis-hits it, he is saying this is too high. Caught at deep midwicket, by the way. The umpires are doing the sensible thing by checking the replays. They show the ball has dipped on him, and the bowler is fine 150/4

    19.2 there is the IPL-style twist. Short, quick, hurrying on him, Samson pulls this straight down to midwicket. Another good fielding effort by Birla. Jaipur is stunned into silence 175/5
