    6.4 and the end to another struggle from Dravid. A fuller length ball, which turns away sharply, as Dravid tries to hit this square, but catches the edge. Nathan McCullum, waiting at point, makes an excellent catch running backwards, and leaps in time to grab it. 49/1
    16.6 low full toss and Neesham takes the big wicket, IPL price goes up once again as Rahane hits this straight at mid off, who accepts the chance gleefully 116/5
    9.3 And the Neesh has been unleashed once again as Samson plays on a length ball. He really wasn't looking his useful self, and it tells with the mode of this dismissal 67/2
    11.3 back of a length, cutting in appreciably, and the Neesh strikes again as Watson almost seems to oblige with his bat in the air, catching the edge, and Derek de Boorder behind the stumps completing a smart take to his right. Big wicket for Otago, as Watson is the kind who can bludgeon any attack out of the stadium. Things got just a bit more interesting here in the Pink City... 71/3
    12.1 And he strikes straightaway! What are Royals doing? They looked home and dry early on, but now it's Binny who goes with an attempt drive through cover, which catches the outside edge, with the slip completing the take 72/4
