Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Prithvi Shaw, 1.6 ov), 2-16 (Shikhar Dhawan, 3.1 ov), 3-36 (Ajinkya Rahane, 5.5 ov), 4-37 (Marcus Stoinis, 6.5 ov), 5-88 (Rishabh Pant, 12.4 ov), 6-100 (Lalit Yadav, 14.5 ov), 7-128 (Tom Curran, 18.2 ov), 8-136 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 18.6 ov)
1.6 to PP Shaw, taken at backward point! Unadkat changes it up early. A full slower ball at off stump. Shaw stuck in the crease, trying to drill this across the line through midwicket. Gets a leading edge and it flies comfortably to Miller there. 5/1
3.1 to S Dhawan, Samson flies to his right to hold on! Unadkat now on a hat-trick. Looks like another slower ball. Good length just outside off, Dhawan shuffles for the ramp but is caught in an awkward and upright position as he executes it. Which is why I suspect that was a slower one. But we'll take a look at that later. He has ended up getting a thick edge and Samson goes one-handed, stretching high and to his right to grab this. Superb from the RR captain. Addendum: It wasn't a slower ball, it was an outswinger. 16/2
5.5 to AM Rahane, chipped straight back to the bowler! Unadkat savouring this new role! The domestic stalwart we've known is surely on display tonight. A slower ball at length, just outside off. Rahane seemed to be advancing but pulled out of his shot - don't know what exactly it was meant to be - and could only jab this back with hard hands down the pitch. 36/3
14.5 to Lalit Yadav, and it is taken at mid-on. Tewatia pumps his fists, this is a very good catch. Length and slanted into middle stump. He looks to loft that on the rise over the infielder and ends up getting it high on the bat. Tewatia tracks it over his right shoulder and keeps his balance after stretching to grab this. 100/6
6.5 to MP Stoinis, Buttler runs back from short extra and grabs that! This is terrific bowling from RR. Delhi have absolutely no answers right now. Another cutter, landed at a length just outside off. Stoinis has shaped for the drive on the up and then has to check the shot. It loops over Buttler, who has to go back and slightly to his right. Tracks it nicely over his shoulders and stretches his arms to grab it. 37/4
18.2 to TK Curran, sneaks through from under the sweep and hits off stump. Beautifully done. Full and dipping this time. Curran's looking to swipe into the leg side but ends up jamming his bat into the pitch. Nowhere near it as that bounces past his back knee and tonks off stump. 128/7

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Manan Vohra, 2.4 ov), 2-13 (Jos Buttler, 2.6 ov), 3-17 (Sanju Samson, 3.3 ov), 4-36 (Shivam Dube, 7.4 ov), 5-42 (Riyan Parag, 9.2 ov), 6-90 (Rahul Tewatia, 14.5 ov), 7-104 (David Miller, 15.5 ov)
2.4 to M Vohra, can't clear mid-on this time! Full and at middle stump. Wants to hit that over mid-on but checks his shot for some reason. Did that stop on him? He ends up getting height but not a lot of distance on that, Rabada takes some steps backwards and holds on. 13/1
2.6 to JC Buttler, inside edge and they have Buttler! Was that the long con from Woakes? Slams it in at a length and brings this one in to Buttler, who has walked into the off side possibly to fetch the awayswinger into the leg side. He's cramped at his body, trying to hurriedly turn it into the leg side, and gets an inside edge that is sailing to Pant's left. The keeper does superbly to grab that with a dive. 13/2
7.4 to S Dube, taken at slip! Dube driving on the up at a length ball that he is not close to. Middle stump line, cutting away and getting steep on him. Feet absolutely rooted. Flies to Dhawan at wide slip. 36/4
9.2 to R Parag, taken at extra cover! Parag looks for the loft over mid-off and gets it off the toe-end. It's a slower ball. It's full and outside off, there for the loft it it is regular paced. But it is not. His bottom hand comes off. Hangs high for Dhawan and Royals are sinking rapidly now. 42/5
15.5 to DA Miller, taken at long-on! Avesh has his revenge! What a sequence it's been, these last three balls. He goes slightly fuller and it looks like that dips towards off stump very late as Miller clears the front leg to try and loft him straight. Gets it off the toe end and is caught well inside the boundary. 104/7
3.3 to SV Samson, taken at slip! I'm back, says Rabada! Hangs this length ball outside off, marginal movement outside off. Samson looks to drive through the line. It carries nicely for Dhawan, high to his left. Rajasthan in familiar territory - lost three wickets in the powerplay quite a few times last season. 17/3
14.5 to R Tewatia, taken by midwicket running in. Short of a length and onto him quickly as he shapes to pull. Ends up slicing that and Lalit jogs in to hold onto that. 90/6
