Dhawal Kulkarni201909.5064000
Shane Watson201336.5083000
3.6 to S Dhawan, he is got him! That has taken an outside edge from the offstump! Too close for a cut actually.. He was neither forward, nor backward.. A poor short from Dhawan just after he was starting to find his touch. 37/1
16.1 to MC Henriques, he comes and picks up the wicket immediately! What a guy.. That was a length delivery, asking to be hit, Henriques clobbers it flat towards long-off where Rahane takes another good catch... 106/6
16.2 to KV Sharma, another one! This is a hat-trick for Watson. Angled delivery, it's steered straight to the hands of the keeper. Ahmedabad is proving real lucky for Royals! Second hat-trick in two games. 106/7
James Faulkner402005.00132010
Rajat Bhatia402335.7561000
6.3 to AJ Finch, Rahane you beauty! He runs in from the deep midwicket boundary, dives forward and takes a blinder. This was a length ball and Finch, as is his wont, swung across the line but didn't make a great connection.. it looked like it was going to drop much short but Rahane ran in quick and slid under it.. A bit like Jadeja taking that catch to dismiss Allan Border in the 1992 WC. 55/2
8.6 to KL Rahul, poor poor shot! Bhatia does what Bhatia does.. Slower delivery outside off, Rahul plays a sweep like he would have against a spinner, misses it completely and loses his offstump..What a shot to play after playing a number of good-looking straight-batted shots.. Sign of the tiimes. 67/3
12.5 to NV Ojha, Bhatia downs another one! this is a slow legcutter on off, Naman Ojha tries to steer it fine on the off side and loses his offstump. 89/5
Pravin Tambe402115.2581010
11.5 to DA Warner, superbly done from Tambe, tosses it up more than he usually does, the line is on middle, Warner takes the bait and rushes out, has a swipe, but this is the googly, turns away, and he is stumped. 85/4

Bhuvneshwar Kumar401443.50171020
0.3 to AM Rahane, first wicket! This is a loose loose shot! He comes forward to this length delivery and pushes at it away from the body, giving a simple head-high catch to the point fielder. 0/1
17.1 to JP Faulkner, slower delivery, Faukner has no option but to swing at it, he hits in the right area, plays his natural game, but unfortunately it doesn't work for him today .. Finch comes round from long on to take a neat catch. 89/7
17.2 to R Bhatia, slower delivery, Bhatia swings this time.. he goes towards deep midwicket.. again more height than distance.. Warner takes a simple catch. 89/8
17.6 to KW Richardson, slower ball, batsman swings, this time it doesn't even go beyond the square.. it goes high, touches the moon, but on its wayback, meets the bowler.. who was running backwards.. Superb catch again. 91/9
Dale Steyn403127.75124120
3.6 to KK Nair, gets the wicket finally! Another back of length delivery swinging away from the batsman, the batsman pokes at it but only gets an outside edge to the keeper... 27/2
15.4 to SPD Smith, They are all on fire! Pathan completes an excellent catch.. With time running out, Smith looks for the big shot at this quick length delivery, he only manages a big top-edge. Irfan runs backwards from mid-off to settle under it. 82/6
Karn Sharma402015.0070000
5.5 to SV Samson, superb ball! Samson gives it away. It was tossed up on the off and middle, the drift brings it in, the loop draws Samson out of the crease.. But it doesn't turn, keeps going straight to hit the top of middle. 37/3
Moises Henriques201115.5051000
6.3 to SR Watson, big big wicket! The tide is turning in Sunrises' favour.. Loose shot from Watson as he tries to cut this short of length delivery, it was too close to cut really.. He gets a faint nick to the keeper. 41/4
Amit Mishra401303.25130010
Irfan Pathan1.50814.3640000
19.5 to PV Tambe, Game over! Tambe chips the length delivery straight to Steyn at long-off. 102/10
