Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Akshath Reddy, 0.5 ov), 2-6 (Kumar Sangakkara, 1.4 ov), 3-7 (Shikhar Dhawan, 1.6 ov), 4-15 (Karn Sharma, 3.4 ov), 5-19 (Thisara Perera, 4.4 ov), 6-29 (Hanuma Vihari, 6.1 ov), 7-87 (Amit Mishra, 14.1 ov), 8-114 (Ashish Reddy, 17.5 ov), 9-127 (Daren Sammy, 18.6 ov)
0.5 to PA Reddy, Chandila strikes. Quite a poor stroke from Reddy. Chandila has been slow through the air, and Reddy is beaten the flight as he charges at him. Reddy ends up hoicking, but gets a massive leading edge. Off you go. 2/1
4.4 to NLTC Perera, the sun is going down fast on Sunrisers. Perera slogs again, and finds long-on this time. 19/5
1.4 to KC Sangakkara, Watson is taking all the catches. Another poor shot from Sunrisers. Wide length ball, Sanga throws his bat at it without moving his feet. He is playing well away from his body, and the ball seams away to take a healthy edge. Watson takes a sharp overhead catch at first slip. 6/2
1.6 to S Dhawan, It's all too dark for Sunrisers here. This is quite a bonus for Rajasthan Royals. Short, wide, four written all over it, but Dhawan pulls out his eraser and rewrites "out" all over it. Cuts this straight and low to backward point, and Rahane is sharp there. 7/3
3.4 to KV Sharma, and another one pulls the blinds on the Sunrisers. Short, gets a bit big, rises towards the chest, and takes the top edge on the pull. Hodge runs in from fine leg to claim this skier. 15/4
14.1 to A Mishra, and he takes a wicket as soon as he comes back. Mishra has thrown it away. He goes hard at a length ball wide outside off, and ends up slicing it in the air. Sammy will hate it if he left stranded. This was the back-of-thehand slower ball. 87/7
18.6 to DJG Sammy, He is given. Five-wicket haul for Faulkner, the first of this IPL. And the big wicket of Sammy too. Length ball, middle and leg, straightens a little. Sammy is playing across the line, is beaten on the inside edge. Looks out. 127/9
6.1 to GH Vihari, and even he strikes first ball. Strangled down the leg side. A gentle loosener down the leg side, and he has gloved it through. No thigh pad in the vicinity, it had to have come off the glove. 29/6
17.5 to A Ashish Reddy, Reddy sees a length ball, wants to smack it out of the ground, but the ball is just a bit shorter than he expects, and he ends up skying it towards long-on. Rahane takes a smart catch there, keeping his eyes on this skier all the way. 114/8

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Ajinkya Rahane, 2.3 ov), 2-81 (Rahul Dravid, 12.5 ov)
2.3 to AM Rahane, desperate shot. Steyn has unsettled them into playing a godawaful shot. That's the problem of T20. you need just a few dot balls. Rahane backs away and heaves. The ball shapes away and takes the toe end of the bat through to Sanga. 7/1
12.5 to R Dravid, the rare length ball. That should have gone really, but Dravid fails. Hit on the bottom of the bat, and he holes out to deep midwicket for a 35-ball 36. 81/2
