Ajinkya Rahane and Shane Watson boost the run rate for Rajasthan Royals against the Kolkata Knight Riders

Apr 29, 2014

 

Rahane and Watson were looking good in Rajasthan Royals’ game against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Chawla came in to bowl the 12th over, and started off well. He wasn’t spinning the ball a lot, but his line and length was tight. He conceded just four off the over.

 

Shakib was greeted by a Shane Watson boundary off the first ball, before Rahane stepped out to loft him over covers for another boundary off the last delivery to make it ten runs off the over.

 

Piyush Chawla bowled a good over after conceding a boundary off the second ball. He kept things tight and bowled with loop and flight. Just six off it.

 

Earlier, Sanju Samson had been dismissed in Rajasthan Royals’ game against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Earlier in the innings, they had lost the wicket of Karun Nair. Since then, Ajinkya Rahane and Samson had batted really well and have helped Rajasthan recover. In 8.3 overs, Rajasthan are 54 for two.

 

Kolkata captain Gautam Gambhir has shuffled his bowlers around. Sunil Narine came on to bowl in the fifth over, but then he was taken off. Samson was bowled by Shakib in the ninth over as a ball hit his body and went back onto the stumps.

 

Earlier, Rajasthan won the toss and elected to bat. Rajasthan brought back James Faulkner into the side. Even Iqbal Abdulla came into the team. Plus, Kolkata got back R Vinay Kumar, Shakib Al Hasan, Manvinder Bisla in place of Piyush Chawla, Chris Lynn and Yusuf Pathan. Samson had hit Morne Morkel for 20 runs in an over to set the tone for the innings.
