RR Over: 17.5 II Score: 155/1

Siddarth Kaul to bowl his fourth over. RR need just five runs to win this match. Five singles take them to comfortable and a commanding win over Delhi. They continue to remain unbeaten at home this season. A good opening stand between Dravid and Rahane laid the foundation for big-hitting Watson to finish it off in the end.
================================================================================

RR Over: 17 II Score: 150/1

Morkel is back. And Rahane sends the first delivery over extra cover region for a maximum. He takes a single off the next. Watson hits the third delivery over long off boundary for another maximum. He follows that with another good shot through point but an even better effort in the deep by Warner saves a certain boundary. 17 runs from the over.
================================================================================

RR Over: 16 II Score: 133/1

Pawan Negi returns to bowl his final over. Three runs from the first five deliveries. Watson finishes the over with a powerful stroke past mid off region for a boundary. Seven runs from the over.

Yadav returns. A single off the first delivery takes Rahane to his fifty. Watson is on strike now. The Australian clipped his first delivery through midwicket region for a boundary. Watson adds second boundary to his total with a cut through point region. He ended the over with a couple. That one was also racing away to the fence but for slide from Warner in the deep that prevent it from crossing the ropes. Time for the strategic break.

================================================================================

RR Over: 12 II Score: 97/0

Ben Rohrer introduced into the attack. Ben saved Delhi's sinking ship with a half-century today. Can he replicate that with his bowling? Meanwhile, he has started with a wide outside off. Dravid lofts the third delivery over extra cover region for a boundary. Off the sixth delivery, Rahane scores a boundary to fine leg. 12 runs from the 12th over.

================================================================================

RR Over: 1 II Score: 0/0

We're back folks. Lights have been turned on. Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane will open the innings for Rajasthans. Siddarth Kaul has the new ball. Facing him is Dravid. The young bowler is getting some swing here. His first delivery swung away from Dravid who reached for it but missed it. Dravid fails to score and so it's a maiden over to start with.
================================================================================

DD Over: 20 II Score: 154/4

Faulkner to bowl the final over of the innings. Jadhave begins the over with a couple. Faulkner follows it with a good yorker. Jadhav takes a single off the next.

DD Over: 18 II Score: 128/4

Faulkner into his third over. He starts it with a wide. Rohrer takes a single off the first. Jadhav follows that with two couples. Of the third, he gets an inside edge that came after he attempted a cut. The ball raced away to the third man boundary. 12 runs from the over.
================================================================================

DD Over: 17 II Score: 116/4

Tait is back. He has been very expensive so far. Don't know what Dravid has in mind. Watson has bowled just two over and has given away just nine runs. So has Faulkner who also has two overs left. Meanwhile, Tait is continuing to pitch short and wide leaking boundaries in abundance. Tait collects consecutive boundaries off his third and fourth delivery - the first a result of a misfield from Tambe at point while the next a a cut over point. Tait ended the over with a sharp bouncer. 12 runs from the over.

================================================================================

DD Over: 13 II Score: 84/4

Tambe to bowl his final over. Rohrer was looking to sweep his second delivery but it took an edge and the ball was caught by keeper after hitting the ground. That looked close.

Six runs from the over.
================================================================================

DD Over: 12 II Score: 78/4

Trivedi continues. Trivedi's fourth delivery is a slower one. Jayawardene swings it over long off boundary for the first maximum of the Delhi innings. OUT! And Trivedi has his revenge off the sixth delivery as he removes Mahela who is caught by Dravid. He scored 34 (31b, 4X4, 6X1). Mahela was looking to flick this but Dravid took a couple of steps to his right and stretched his arms, managed to take it cleanly. In walks Kedar Jadhav.
================================================================================

DD Over: 11 II Score: 70/3

Halfway down the innings and Delhi have lost three wickets with just 55 on board. Tambe to bowl his third over. Jayawardene sweeps his first delivery of the over for a boundary.

DD Over: 8 II Score: 48/3

Binny continues. OUT! And Binny gets the prized wicket of David Warner who has been caught by Sachin Baby at covers. He scored 13 (18b, 4X2). It was a slower delivery that bounced a bit more than Warner had anticipated. He was taken aback and ended up giving a catch to extra cover. Ben Rohrer is the new man in the middle. And a loud shout for lbw but umpire turns it down. Just two runs from the over.
================================================================================

DD Over: 7 II Score: 46/2

Here comes the oldest IPL debutant ever. Pravin Tambe at 41 years is the oldest cricketer to have made his debut in the annual championship. He hasn't played in any Ranji game but has played a lot of cricket at club level. Just four runs from his first over.
================================================================================

DD Over: 6 II Score: 42/2

================================================================================

DD Over: 5 II Score: 41/2

Tait is back after that prolonged first over. Facing him is Warner. Off the second, he manages to induce an edge but it flies well wide of the slip fielder and goes for a boundary to third man region. He follows that with another boundary through covers.

A wicket and one run from the over.
================================================================================

DD Over: 2 II Score: 21/1

James Faulkner to share the new ball with Tait. And Sehwag sets the ball rolling with a flicked boundary to midwicket region. Off the third, Sehwag uses the pace of the delivery and superbly places it through covers for another boundary. OUT! And Faulkner has the last laugh as he bowls Sehwag off his fourth! He scored 11 (7b, 4X2). That was a slower one from Faulkner as Sehwag with a high backlift didn't pick it up and went for his shot. The ball after clipping his pad, crashed on the stumps. Debutant Muralidharen Gautam is the new man in the middle. 10 runs from the over.
================================================================================

DD Over: 1 II Score: 11/0

Right. Shaun Tait has the new ball. Facing him is Delhi captain Mahela Jayawardene. Opening the innings with him for the visitors is Virender Sehwag. And off the second delivery, Delhi open their account courtesy a boundary from the bat of Mahela via a pull to deep backward square leg region. The next from Tait is a wide down the leg side. A single off the third brings Sehwag on strike who gets off the mark with a couple. 11 runs from the over that include three extras from wides.
================================================================================
