17.6 to SK Warne, that's a sharp catch! Yomahesh pitches short of a length and outside off stump, Warne uses the length and the width to cut the ball hard, it's travelling quickly towards point where Sehwag takes several steps to his right and then dives to hold the catch with both hands, Warne's got a duck off his first ball. 172/7
Farveez Maharoof403438.5094100
6.4 to GC Smith, caught! and splendidly caught! Smith lifts the ball off his pads once again, he's hit it flat towards deep square leg where Shikhar Dhawan runs in from the boundary and dives to take the catch inches off the ground, superb effort and the relief is visible on Sehwag's face. 65/1

He hits the pitch hard and gets the ball to lift on Asnodkar from just short of a length, Asnodkar cuts the ball from outside off stump but can't control it because of the high bounce, he slices it in the air towards Tiwary at point, who takes a smart catch. 65/2

Sohail Tanvir201608.0021020
Shane Watson301033.33121010
1.2 to V Sehwag, what a big wicket! short and quick, that was well targetted, 132kph, tries to pull hard but that's caught the top edge and rocketed high in the air, he was no way in control of that, Tanvir runs to his left from fine leg and pulls off a sharp catch, he actually ended up taking a one-hander, though he had it covered. 10/1
3.6 to G Gambhir, That's a stunner of a catch! Gambhir dances down the track and slaps hard, it's in the air and Taruwar Kohli (the substitute) throws himself to the left at point, extends his arms and plucks off a peach, that was one hell of a catch, Rajasthan are on a roll here. What a big wicket that was. 23/2
5.2 to S Dhawan, caught! Watson's on a roll, he pitches the ball slightly short, it isn't a wicket ball by any means but Dhawan moves back and pulls the ball straight to Jadeja at midwicket, the ball went straight to him, he didn't need to move an inch. 24/3
Munaf Patel401734.25163000
6.2 to MK Tiwary, another one goes, Tiwary tries to pull off the front foot when the length isn't short enough, the ball hurries on to him and he top-edges between midwicket and mid-on, Asnodkar goes for it from midwicket and nearly collides with Tanvir who came in from mid-on, Asnodkar holds the catch in the end. 28/4
13.1 to A Mishra, bowled him! Munaf pitches the ball on a good length and cuts the ball into the right-hander, Mishra tries to work the ball off his pads but it's a feeble attempt, the ball thuds into his pads and hits the stumps off the rebound. 77/8
15.2 to VY Mahesh, the ninth falls! Yomahesh takes a walk down and tries to hook a short ball from Munaf, he misses and the ball smacks into his shoulder and lobs up towards Rawat who takes the catch, Rajasthan appeal and Rudi nods after a delay, he isn't sure initially but then tentatively raises the finger. 82/9
Siddharth Trivedi302016.6692100
9.5 to KD Karthik, caught! Would you believe it, off a full toss! Karthik flicks a friendly full toss off his pads, he's hit it flat in the air towards deep midwicket where Kaif sprints off the boundary line and slides to take a low catch, well judged and Rajasthan tighten their vice-like grip on this match. 55/5
Shane Warne402125.25112000
12.1 to MF Maharoof, caught! Warne's got rid of Maharoof! He cleared his front foot out of the way and tried to loft the legbreak against the spin over midwicket, he didn't hit it well enough and Yusuf Pathan settled under the skier at deep midwicket, Maharoof hit 26 runs off an over from Warne in their last match but Warne got the better of him today. 75/6
12.5 to TM Dilshan, caught! Dilshan's fall is surely the end of Delhi's slim chances, Warne loops the ball outside leg stump and spins the ball across the right-hander, Dilshan gets down on one knee and tries to slog sweep, he gets a top edge that flies to fine leg where Tanvir runs forward and catches it. 76/7
