Rahane half-century guides Rajasthan Royals as they lose wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2014

Apr 29, 2014

Ajinkya Rahane looked very good in Rajasthan Royals’ game against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Morne Morkel came in to bowl his final over, the 18th of the innings. He struck almost immediately, getting Stuart Binny’s outside edge off the second ball of the over. Steven Smith was the new batsman in for RR. Morkel managed to pull things back for KKR as he went for just six runs off the over.

Sunil Narine came back to bowl the 17th over, and Rahane greeted him with a drive through covers for a four. Narine induced a leading edge off the next ball, but it didn’t go to hand. A misfield off the third delivery allowed Rahane to com back for the second. Rahane tried to go for a reverse sweep off the next ball, but failed to make connection. Narine was taken for a relatively high nine runs off the over.

R Vinay Kumar bowled the 16th over of the innings. Ajinkya Rahane smashed him down to long on, but the fielder looked interested till the ball went way over the ropes. Rahane creamed 11 runs off the first five balls of the over, before Watson was run out off the final delivery.

Earlier, Shane Watson and Ajinkya Rahane led the way to a big total in Rajasthan Royals’ game against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. After conceding 17 off the previous over, Sunil Narine was brought on by KKR. He bowled a typically tight over, spinning the ball both ways. He cramped Watson for room while playing the pull, but didn’t cause much trouble to either batsmen. Watson was able to get a boundary off the final delivery, hitting one down to wide long off.

Piyush Chawla, into his third over, induced a false shot from Rahane, but the batsmen got two runs for it. Off the third ball, Shane Watson took him on, clubbing him over midwicket for a boundary. Watson was looking very good, as he smashed the next ball down the ground to collect two more. The signs were ominous for KKR, as Watson drove the next ball through covers to get his second boundary in three balls. The last ball ended with Watson going for a pull to a ball not short enough. Luckily for Watson and RR, it took the inside edge and went down to the fine leg boundary. Huge over for the Royals.

Shakib came in to bowl the 13th over, and once against started well. He was giving the ball decent flight and inviting the batsmen to take him on. Rahane and Watson in turn kept calm and played off Shakib’s last over. He finished with impressive figures of 2-0-23-1.

Earlier, 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.
