    3.6 he is got him! That has taken an outside edge from the offstump! Too close for a cut actually.. He was neither forward, nor backward.. A poor short from Dhawan just after he was starting to find his touch 37/1
    6.3 Rahane you beauty! He runs in from the deep midwicket boundary, dives forward and takes a blinder. This was a length ball and Finch, as is his wont, swung across the line but didn't make a great connection.. it looked like it was going to drop much short but Rahane ran in quick and slid under it.. A bit like Jadeja taking that catch to dismiss Allan Border in the 1992 WC 55/2

    8.6 poor poor shot! Bhatia does what Bhatia does.. Slower delivery outside off, Rahul plays a sweep like he would have against a spinner, misses it completely and loses his offstump..What a shot to play after playing a number of good-looking straight-batted shots.. Sign of the tiimes 67/3
    12.5 Bhatia downs another one! this is a slow legcutter on off, Naman Ojha tries to steer it fine on the off side and loses his offstump 89/5
    11.5 superbly done from Tambe, tosses it up more than he usually does, the line is on middle, Warner takes the bait and rushes out, has a swipe, but this is the googly, turns away, and he is stumped 85/4
    16.1 he comes and picks up the wicket immediately! What a guy.. That was a length delivery, asking to be hit, Henriques clobbers it flat towards long-off where Rahane takes another good catch.. 106/6

    16.2 another one! This is a hat-trick for Watson. Angled delivery, it's steered straight to the hands of the keeper. Ahmedabad is proving real lucky for Royals! Second hat-trick in two games 106/7
    19.2 and another one! This is too wide though but Irfan runs for a bye.. Steyn has to pay the price as Sanju takes down the stumps.. 125/8
    19.4 What a comedy! The batsman misses the shot and runs out of the crease to pick up a bye.. Sanju fires the throw and misses.. Faulkner gathers the ball, he fires in a throw again as Mishra is still out of the crease.. He misses again.. Now Sanju takes it and he finally manages to strike the stumps.. Mishra could have saved himself but he had given himself up to the mercy of this funny game between Samson and Faulkner.. Irfan Pathan doesn't move, he had the best seat 129/9

    0.3 first wicket! This is a loose loose shot! He comes forward to this length delivery and pushes at it away from the body, giving a simple head-high catch to the point fielder 0/1
    3.6 gets the wicket finally! Another back of length delivery swinging away from the batsman, the batsman pokes at it but only gets an outside edge to the keeper.. 27/2
    5.5 superb ball! Samson gives it away. It was tossed up on the off and middle, the drift brings it in, the loop draws Samson out of the crease.. But it doesn't turn, keeps going straight to hit the top of middle 37/3
    6.3 big big wicket! The tide is turning in Sunrises' favour.. Loose shot from Watson as he tries to cut this short of length delivery, it was too close to cut really.. He gets a faint nick to the keeper 41/4
    13.4 Warner you beauty! This is sensational stuff. The batsman dabs it to midwicket and calls for a second.. This looked like a two.. but Warner hared in, swooped the ball and hit the stumps direct at non-striker's end.. Binny has to go back.. Binny is way way short.. 78/5
    15.4 They are all on fire! Pathan completes an excellent catch.. With time running out, Smith looks for the big shot at this quick length delivery, he only manages a big top-edge. Irfan runs backwards from mid-off to settle under it 82/6
    17.2 slower delivery, Bhatia swings this time.. he goes towards deep midwicket.. again more height than distance.. Warner takes a simple catch 89/8
    17.1 slower delivery, Faukner has no option but to swing at it, he hits in the right area, plays his natural game, but unfortunately it doesn't work for him today .. Finch comes round from long on to take a neat catch 89/7
    17.6 slower ball, batsman swings, this time it doesn't even go beyond the square.. it goes high, touches the moon, but on its wayback, meets the bowler.. who was running backwards.. Superb catch again 91/9
