  • 11:00 PM IST

    16.6 Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler, FOUR, FOUR! This over is probably the one which seals the deal for Rajasthan. 19 from it and only 11 more needed. A slower one on middle. Buttler heaves it over mid-wicket and it races away to the fence.

  • 10:59 PM IST

    16.5 Mohammed Shami to Steven Smith, 1 run, Direct hit and Smith was a goner! This is outside off, Smith guides it towards point and takes off. Suchith, who has hit the stumps earlier on has a shy at the bowler’s end but misses.

  • 10:58 PM IST

    16.4 Mohammed Shami to Steven Smith, FOUR, FOUR! This is majestic from Smith! He goes down on one knee and plays the paddle scoop. He just knew where Shami was going to bowl and plays a brilliant shot. It goes for a boundary in the fine leg region. Runs needed below 20 now.

  • 10:57 PM IST

  • 10:56 PM IST

    Mohammed Shami is back!

  • 10:54 PM IST

    15.6 Chris Jordan to Jos Buttler, SIX, SIX! It’s a big hoick and spoils all the good work done in this over by Jordan. His slower delivery is picked this time Buttler. The length is full and Buttler dispatches it over long on. 10 from the over, 30 needed off 24 balls.

  • 10:54 PM IST

    15.5 Chris Jordan to Jos Buttler, no run, Back of a length ball on off, angling in, Jos stays back and pushes it to the left of the bowler. Jordan does well to stop it. Excellent over, thus far.

  • 10:53 PM IST

    15.4 Chris Jordan to Jos Buttler, no run, Fools the batsman with a slower one! Shortish and outside off, Buttler is early into the shot and gets an under edge. It rolls behind to the keeper.

  • 10:53 PM IST

    15.3 Chris Jordan to Steven Smith, leg byes, 1 run, Slower delivery, on a length around middle and leg, Smith fails to flick and it goes off his pads to square leg. They pinch a leg bye. 150 up!

  • 10:49 PM IST

    Drinks break! Rajasthan were cruising due the partnership between Smith and Samson but the latter got run out and this chase seems to have some more life left. The last over by Bishnoi was excellent and Punjab need to bowl out of their skin in the backend. 40 needed off 30 balls, the equation still favours Rajasthan. Meanwhile, Chris Jordan is back into the attack after the break.

  • 10:47 PM IST

    14.6 Ravi Bishnoi to Steven Smith, no run, A dot to end just the kind of over Punjab needed. A wicket and two runs from it. 40 needed in 30 now. The last ball is on off, it is guided to point.

  • 10:46 PM IST

    14.5 Ravi Bishnoi to Jos Buttler, 1 run, On middle, this is worked through mid-wicket for one.

  • 10:45 PM IST

    14.4 Ravi Bishnoi to Jos Buttler, no run, NOT OUT! It indeed is pitching outside leg. Punjab lose a review but it was probably more in hope. This pitches and then skids through. Buttler looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. Bishnoi appeals but the umpire turns it down. Ravi is adamant for a review. Rahul takes it. Replays roll in and they show the on-field call is the rigtht one.

  • 10:45 PM IST

    14.4 A review from Punjab as an appeal for LBW has been turned down. The ball seems to be pitching outside leg. It seems like a review more in hope.

  • 10:44 PM IST

    14.3 Ravi Bishnoi to Jos Buttler, no run, Outside off, Buttler looks to cut but misses.

  • 10:44 PM IST

    Jos Buttler walks out to bat.

  • 10:43 PM IST

    14.2 Ravi Bishnoi to Steven Smith, out, OUT! Samson is short! Even the dive does not save him. Punjab have got the breakthrough they desperately needed. Yes, they are still on the back foot but this can be the opening for them. Also, this is the last thing Rajasthan needed. The two were going along so nicely. This is shorter and outside off. Smith mistimes it towards point and takes off. Sujchit the substitute, gets to the ball from point, picks it up and scores a direct hit at the keeper’s end. Punjab are already celebrating. The umpire refers it. Replays show that Samson is short. A sorry way to end a promising innings,

  • 10:42 PM IST

    Direct hit and Samson seems short! This could well be the opening Punjab needed?

  • 10:42 PM IST

    14.1 Ravi Bishnoi to Sanju Samson, 1 run, Tossed up on off, this is hit down to long on for one.

  • 10:42 PM IST

    Bishnoi is got back on!

  • 10:40 PM IST

    13.6 Chris Jordan to Steven Smith, FOUR, FOUR! Nice and fine! Beautifully played by Smith! It is a low full toss on middle. He manages to stay leg side of the delivery and jams it fine towards third man. This time Arshdeep has no chance. 42 needed in 36.

  • 10:40 PM IST

    13.5 Chris Jordan to Sanju Samson, 1 run, A short one now! On the body. It is pulled towards short fine leg. Shami fumbles and allows a single.

  • 10:39 PM IST

    13.4 Chris Jordan to Sanju Samson, 2 runs, Well fielded! Arshdeep it is again! Shorter and outside off. Samson guides it past point. It seems to be heading for a boundary but Singh from third man runs to his right, dives and stops it. The batsmen take two.
