James Faulkner4041210.2584210
17.2 to BJ Hodge, bowled him! Slower one, back of the hand stuff, and the batsman tried to play it across the line, but missed it completed and he is bowled.. 162/3
19.3 to AM Rahane, bowled him! Misses his 100 by a couple of runs there! Slower ball and Rahane tried to go over the top of the extra-cover region, but the change of pace beat him completely and he fails to get any bat to that one. Stumps are castled.. 180/4
Piyush Chawla403318.2596000
10.5 to AL Menaria, bowled! Menaria, I think has yorked himself and the stumps are lying all scattered on the ground. Chawla is pumped and Rajasthan have lost two wickets in as many overs.. 87/2
Bipul Sharma402807.0081020
Harmeet Singh302317.6673020
9.3 to R Dravid, Dravid tries to slap it over the in-field but it gets only till the sweeper fielder, who moved in to take the catch.. 77/1

Siddharth Trivedi403218.0094001
11.2 to DJ Hussey, this was a shorter one yet again but this time he upped his pace. Hussey probably expected it to be a slower one and seemed late on it and he manages to hit to long-on, where that man Cooper catches it again!. 86/5
Johan Botha403609.0064100
Amit Singh402616.5070110
4.1 to AC Gilchrist, gone this time, caught in the region between mid-on and mid-off! Slower one from Amit Singh and Gilchrist tried to smack it over the bowler but the timing was too awry for it to carry all the way and Cooper ran from mid-on to hold on to it.. 36/1
Kevon Cooper402646.50131200
5.5 to PC Valthaty, gone! yep, he was playing a lot of shots and this time he has only managed to cut it away to the short third-man. Full-toss and he cuts it to the third-man, who scoops it up for himself and catches it on the second attempt.. 44/2
7.2 to SE Marsh, gone! Marsh is gone, beaten by a slower delivery! He was very early into the shot and the flick shot brought about his downfall this time. The ball looped up in the air and Dravid takes a good catch, with hands outstretched!. 55/3
7.6 to AM Nayar, this is shoddy batting really. Nayar attempted a shot every ball after that wicket of Marsh and he has finally convinced himself into getting out. Top-edges the sweep and is easily caught by the wicket-keeper.. 61/4
18.2 to PP Chawla, slower one and Cooper has bowled Chawla to get his fourth wicket. What an IPL debut for the all-rounder from Trinidad and Tobago!. 143/8
Brad Hodge10808.0021000
Ankeet Chavan302829.3334000
15.4 to Bipul Sharma, swept hard but it only looked like he had done that, the timing went totally awry there and the ball went high, not long. The fielder ran in and took a smart catch there.. 123/6
15.6 to Mandeep Singh, slog, beaten and bowled! There was nothing else that the batsman could do at this stage given the mounting required run-rate and once he missed connecting it, the ball was headed only in one direction - towards the stumps.. 127/7
