View dismissal JD Ryder st †Yagnik b Botha 18 12 3 0 150.00
2.6 you just can't keep Botha out of it for long, in this IPL 2011. Ryder's been utterly impatient, looking to charge out almost every ball, and it was getting monotonously predictable. Botha holds it back a touch, again gets it to grip and turn away sharply. Ryder heaves without conviction after prancing out, misses and is stumped by yards. 24/1
View dismissal MK Pandey c Taylor b Trivedi 30 31 4 0 96.77
12.5 Pandey, what have you done? How many times have we seen him throw his wicket away in the IPL? What a moment to combust. Trivedi's innocuous nothing-ball does it again. It is a slow full ball on off stump, Pandey looks to brutalise it over midwicket, as he cross-bats. It loops up in the air and lands in deep midwicket's hands. 93/4
View dismissal RV Uthappa c †Yagnik b Warne 35 21 7 0 166.66
8.2 Warne's won the contest at the end of it all! On leg stump again, slightly shorter than before, and straightening, Uthappa was probably ambitious in looking for the reverse sweep again. Uthappa top-edges the reverse sweep, looked like it came off the glove, and Yagnik ran to the leg side to take the catch. 70/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh* run out (Trivedi) 7 11 0 0 63.63
12.1 Trivedi to Pandey, tragedy for Yuvraj. He's run out backing up too far. Over-pitched on off stump, a typical nothing ball from Trivedi, Pandey bashes it right back, along the ground and Trivedi gets a hand on it. Yuvraj is not even in the frame. Off stump is out of the ground, at the bowler's end. 91/3
View dismissal Harpreet Singh c Rahane b Watson 13 19 0 0 68.42
18.1 Rahane's held on to one of the tougher outfield catches you will see. Short ball from Watson, he could not have been more predictable if he had held aloft a banner saying "Deadling exclusively in short balls". Yet, Harpreet was in no position to pull and top-edged off the front foot. Rahane ran across from deep square leg, slid and held as it came down over his shoulder. 121/5
View dismissal M Manhas c Binny b Trivedi 24 19 1 1 126.31
19.2 Manhas is gone, Trivedi surprises him with a touch of extra pace, and Manhas is hurried into the pull off the front foot. It goes high towards midwicket. Binny sprints in, slides and completes another good catch. Rajasthan have been brilliant in the field. 134/6
NL McCullum not out 11 6 0 1 183.33
View dismissal R Sharma run out (†Yagnik/Trivedi) 0 1 0 0 0.00
19.4 from Trivedi, an action replay of the previous ball, except that this time Trivedi his the stumps at his end, and Rahul is gone. Slow and short offcutter outside off, Rahul has a carve and misses. He looks to run and transfer strike to McCullum, who is through in a flash. The relay throw comes to Trivedi, who takes aim and sends a stumps out of the turf. 135/7

View dismissal SR Watson c †Uthappa b Thomas 12 14 0 1 85.71
4.2 top delivery from Alfonso, he's nailed Watto with the classic away seamer. Probably not entirely intended, it came out with a scrambled seam, but landed on the thread outside off after angling in, and straightened. Watson did not spot the deviation, got half forward and drove, but it kissed the outside edge and settled into Uthappa's gloves. Gone. 29/1
View dismissal R Dravid c & b Sharma 18 20 2 0 90.00
7.1 there's something about this IPL, it just doesn't let Dravid carry on with his starts, and he seems to keep getting out to soft dismissals. Here's another. His namesake drops this short and slow, it sits up like a cookie that has to be consumed in a hurry, Dravid goes for the pull and ends up slapping it right back at the bowler. Nicely held. 43/2
View dismissal J Botha lbw b Sharma 12 18 1 0 66.66
10.1 another reverse sweep expert perishes to the reverse sweep today. Rahul Sharma fires this in very full on middle, Botha tries to take it on the full and reverse slap it through third man, but the ball thuds into his boot before the bat can come down. Plumb and given by Taufel. I reckon even Tarapore would have given this out. 59/3
View dismissal AL Menaria c Thomas b Sharma 29 22 0 3 131.81
14.1 is it too late in the game? Rahul Sharma has got Menaria to mis-hit one of his big swings into the leg side. Superb catch from Alfonso Thomas, who, for me, has been the best Pune player in this IPL. This was in the slot, Menaria lined him up and looked to go downtown, but lofted it towards wide long-on. Alfonso runs across from long-on and takes it. 92/4
