Shane Watson dismissed Sachin Rana in what was an identical dismissal to Ab de Villiers’s wicket as he chopped the ball on to the stumps in Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals  in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014.

 

After nearly losing half the side in the first three overs, Bangalore desperately needed Kohli to stabilise the team and the rest of the batsmen to rally around Kohli to save the men in red from the blushes. Tim Southee, like the wrecker-in-chief Richardson was also looking dangerous and bowled a couple of toe crashing yorkers which Sachin Rana had to dig deep to block them out.

 

After his early blitz, Richardson bowled another tidy over Watson took the wicket of Sachin Rana. Albie Morkel survived a leg-before appeal and played a superb straight drive for a boundary to lift spirits.
