Jaipur: May 5, 2013

RR 182/5 | Overs 19.5 | Binny 32*, Faulkner 3* OUT! Samson 10(6)

Wayne Parnell bowls the final over. Sanju Samson swings on a short-pitched ball, looking to clear mid-wicket but finds Udit Birla who takes a great low catch. In the end, the Royals got homw with a ball to spare to notch their seventh win of the tournament.

Rajasthan Royals win by 5 wickets with 1 ball to spare.


RR 174/4 | Overs 19 | Binny 27*, Samson 10*

Stuart Binny slashes at Bhuvneshwar Kumar towards point, where Yuvraj Singh dives to his right but spills the catch. Binny ends the over with a massive slog just over long-on for six.

RR need 5 runs from 6 balls.
 


RR 161/4 | Overs 18 | Binny 15*, Samson 9* OUT! Hodge 4(5)

Wayne Parnell bowls a high full toss to Brad Hodge, who mistimes his slog and is caught at deep mid-wicket. Hodge hangs around asking for a height no-ball; the umpires go upstairs as replays show that the ball was just below waist height. Hodge has to walk back as young Sanju Samson comes in. The 18-year-old opens his account with a crisp and elegant cover drive wide of mid-off for four, before cheekily guiding a widish delivery to the third-man fence for another boundary.

RR need 18 runs from 12 balls.
 


RR 150/3 | Overs 17 | Hodge 4*, Binny 13*

Rahul Sharma bowls a quick, but short ball and Stuart Binny sends it packing to the deep backward point fence. Binny punishes Rahul more as he heaves the spinner over deep mid-wicket for maximum. Brilliant batting this!

RR need 29 runs from 18 balls.
 


RR 136/3 | Overs 16 | Hodge 3*, Binny 0* OUT! Rahane 67(47)

Ajinkya Rahane welcomes Bhuvneshwar Kumar into his second spell with a slog to deep mid-wicket for a boundary. However, Bhuvi gets his man on the last ball of the over as Rahane goes for an ambitious sweep off a delivery outside off, finds the top edge and is caught at mid-wicket.

RR need 43 runs from 24 balls.
 


RR 128/2 | Overs 15 | Rahane 62*, Hodge 0* OUT! Watson 5(5)

Wayne Parnell gets Shane Watson to drag his delivery drifting outside off onto his stumps to give Pune their second wicket. A ball earlier, Watson had survived a loud appeal for caught-behind after the umpire correctly called that the ball clipped the top of the pads. Just one run and a wicket from the over.
 


RR 127/1 | Overs 14 | Rahane 61*, Watson 5*

Ajinkya Rahane brings up his fifty in style with a lofted cover-drive off Angelo Mathews that flies over extra cover for maximum. He follows it up with a thick edge to third-man for four more. The next boundary is classier as Rahane drives a full toss past point to race into the sixties. The over gets worse for Mathews as Watson comes in and cuts the bowler for four. 21 runs come from the over.
 


RR 106/1 | Overs 13 | Rahane 44*, Watson 1*

Yuvraj Singh comes back for a second over and manages to keep the Royals quiet, giving away no boundary, but seven runs.
 


RR 99/1 | Overs 12 | Rahane 38*, Watson 0* OUT! Dravid 58(40)

Rahul Dravid goes for the big heave over long-off, but can only hole out to Mitchell Marsh as Pune and Angelo Mathews claim a much-needed win. Shane Watson is the new man in and couldn’t have asked for a better platform!
 


RR 94/0 | Overs 11 | Dravid 56*, Rahane 35*

Rahul Draid brings up his half-century with a gorgeous straight drive for six. He’s in the groove here at the SMS. Not seen him bat like this for a while.
 


RR 84/0 | Overs 10 | Dravid 48*, Rahane 32*

Rahul Dravid brings up 2,000 runs in the IPL with a lovely cover drive for four off Angelo Mathews. At the halfway point of the innings, Rajasthan would be quite content with where they are.
 


RR 76/0 | Overs 9 | Dravid 42*, Rahane 31*

Rahul Sharma returns to bowl a good over for the Warriors, giving just four runs to the Royals.
 


RR 72/0 | Overs 8 | Dravid 40*, Rahane 30*

Yuvraj Singh tosses it up outside off to Dravid and the Rajasthan skipper is not going to leave that unpunished. A swift and uppish cover drive follows that fetches Dravid four more runs. Five more runs come from the over.
 


RR 63/0 | Overs 7 | Dravid 33*, Rahane 28*

Ajinkya Rahane welcomes Rahul Sharma into the attack with a late cut to the deep backward point fence for four. 10 runs come from the over as the Royals continue to charge along to the finish line.
 


RR 53/0 | Overs 6 | Dravid 31*, Rahane 20*

Krishnakant Upadhyay is taken to the cleaners by the Royals openers! First, Rahane plays an elegant straight drive for four off the first ball, before Rahul Dravid comes in and punishes a short and widish ball to the long-off fence. He followes it up with a neat flick of the wrists down deep square-leg for another boundary.
 


RR 40/0 | Overs 5 | Dravid 23*, Rahane 15*

Wayne Parnell comes into the attack in his first match of IPL 6 and does well, save for the last ball of the over which is spanked straight down the ground for four.
 


RR 33/0 | Overs 4 | Dravid 18*, Rahane 13*

Ajinkya Rahane gets into the action and punishes a short ball from Krishnakant Upadhyay to the deep mid-wicket fence for half a dozen, before flicking the medium-pacer’s delivery drifting down the leg for four more to deep square-leg.
 


RR 19/0 | Overs 3 | Dravid 17*, Rahane 1*

Rahul Dravid looks in gorgeous touch here as he hits Bhuvneshwar Kumar for two more boundaries. First, he punches a short-pitched delivery wide of long-on, before executing a lovely straight drive for four more.
 


RR 11/0 | Overs 2 | Dravid 9*, Rahane 1*

Krishnakant Upadhyay gets to share the new ball and bowls accurately to give just two runs.
 


RR 9/0 | Overs 1 | Dravid 8*, Rahane 0*

Rahul Dravid opens the batting for the Royals after coming in at No 8 a few days back. The veteran Indian batsman starts off with two cracking drives through the off. That was vintage Dravid!
 


So, 92 runs came off the first 10 overs, while 86 came off the next 60 balls. Pune would have hoped for perhaps 15-20 runs more at the halfway stage, but this is a good total nonetheless. The Warriors batted well without any pressure and the Royals will have to bat really well to get a win here. The highest chased total at SMS is 197, so all is not lost for the home team. Join us in a bit for the chase.

Pune 178/4 | Overs 20 | Marsh 35*, Rawat 0* OUT! Mathews 18(15)

Angelo Mathews swings hard at James Faulkner, but finds the leading edge that goes high in the air towards long-on, where Ajinkya Rahane takes an easy catch. Mitchell Marsh then clobbers Faulkner over the fence to show his teammate how it’s done and finishes it off in style for the Warriors.
 


Pune 165/3 | Overs 19 | Marsh 26*, Mathews 15*

Kevon Cooper comes back for his last over and Mitchell Marsh powerfully lofts it over deep square-leg for maximum. Marsh then gives his captain Aaron Finch, sitting in the dug outs behind long-off, catching practice with another six. Pune could do with one more over like this to justify their start.
 


Pune 151/3 | Overs 18 | Marsh 13*, Mathews 14*

Mitchell Marsh picks Shane Watson’s slowish short delivery and pulls it wonderfully between deep mid-wicket and long-on.
 


Pune 142/3 | Overs 17 | Marsh 7*, Mathews 11*

A good over from Kevon Cooper is ruined with an outside edge that flies to the third-man fence.
 


Pune 133/3 | Overs 16 | Marsh 5*, Mathews 4* OUT! Uthappa 54(41)

Sanju Samson gets a superb throw in from behind the sticks to run out Robin Uthappa and give the Royals another wicket. Uthappa was looking good for a big one and the Royals would be delighted with the wicket. Pune are losing wickets quickly here.
 


Pune 125/2 | Overs 15 | Uthappa 54*, Marsh 1*

Shane Watson almost gets a maiden in for the Royals before Mitchell Marsh steals a single off the last ball.
 


Pune 124/2 | Overs 14 | Uthappa 54*, Marsh 0* OUT! Yuvraj 15(11)

Robin Uthappa gets to his half-century with a lofted straight drive for four. But Kevon Cooper gets his second wicket of the match after not getting enough bat on a lofted drive towards long-on. Another failure for the India discard.
 


Pune 113/1 | Overs 13 | Uthappa 45*, Yuvraj 13*

Yuvraj Singh elegantly cuts Stuart Binny past point for four, before a typical flick of the wrists off one leg gets him six over deep mid-wicket.
 


Pune 102/1 | Overs 12 | Uthappa 44*, Yuvraj 3*

Siddharth Trivedi comes back for a third over as Pune get five runs off it. Robin Uthappa almost throws his wicket away with a mistimed pull that falls in no man’s land.
 


Pune 97/1 | Overs 11 | Uthappa 41*, Yuvraj 0* OUT! Finch 45(32)

Kevon Cooper gets Rajasthan their first wicket and it’s that of Pune skipper Aaron Finch. It was a slowish short-pitched delivery, which Finch tried to pull, but found the inside-edge that rocked back onto his stumps. End of a great first-innings partnership for the visitors!
 


Pune 92/0 | Overs 10 | Finch 42*, Uthappa 41*

Robin Uthappa flicks Siddharth Trivedi off the pads and the ball runs along to the deep square-leg fence. Ajit Chandila was struggling in the chase; looks like he’s hurt something.
 


Pune 80/0 | Overs 9 | Finch 37*, Uthappa 35*

Shane Watson bowls short and Aaron Finch cuts hard one-bounce over point for four. Pune’s run-rate has slightly slowed down, but they are still coasting along to a big total.
 


Pune 74/0 | Overs 8 | Finch 32*, Uthappa 34*

Rajasthan bring in Stuart Binny. Robin Uthappa just about manages to clear wide long-on for half-a-dozen with Chandila lurking on the boundary.
 


Pune 66/0 | Overs 7 | Finch 32*, Uthappa 27*

Siddharth Trivedi comes in with his medium-pacers and bowls a good over for the Royals after the early surge. Five runs come off it.
 


Pune 61/0 | Overs 6 | Finch 28*, Uthappa 26*

Rajasthan Royals continue to bowl wayward as Kevon Cooper comes in. Aaron Finch ensures Pune cross 60 in the Powerplay overs with a lofted drive over mid-on for four. Fantastic start, this, by the visitors!
 


Pune 50/0 | Overs 5 | Finch 23*, Uthappa 25*

Aaron Finch punches his countryman James Faulkner through the cover-point region to get another boundary for his team. Pune get to their 50 in the fifth over, which according to Alan Wilkins is their second-fastest in all IPL games.
 


Pune 43/0 | Overs 4 | Finch 16*, Uthappa 25*

Shane Watson bowls too short to Robin Uthappa, who obliges with a cracking pull to long-on for four. Watson gets the next delivery fuller, but the result is the same as Uthappa shapes his body beautifully and executes the cover-drive that fetches another boundary. Almost a carbon copy shot off the last ball gets Pune 13 runs in the over.
 


Pune 30/0 | Overs 3 | Finch 16*, Uthappa 13*

Ajit Chandila isn’t off to the best of starts here as he gets hit for two consecutive boundaries by Robin Uthappa. The off-spinner is wayward on either side of the wicket and is punished with a sweep and a drive that fetch four. Finch then comes in and sweeps him for four more off the last ball to end a good over for Pune.
 


Pune 16/0 | Overs 2 | Finch 11*, Uthappa 4*

Ajit Chandila gifts a boundary to Pune at deep square-leg after misfielding a whip from Aaron Finch off James Faulkner. Otherwise a good over from the Australian all-rounder.
 


Pune 9/0 | Overs 1 | Finch 6*, Uthappa 3*

Ajit Chandila, who had got a hat-trick against the Pune Warriors last season bowls the first over. After five singles, Aaron Finch ends the over with a drive square of the wicket for four.
