PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Steven Smith

19.1Malinga to Binny

4
FOUR LEG BYES! RAJASTHAN WIN! What an anti-climax. A full toss, down the leg side and Binny looks to flick it away. But he misses and the ball goes off the pads to the fine leg fence. Okay. Replays seem to indicate an inside edge.

18.6Bumrah to Binny

1
A length delivery on off, Binny plays it to mid off. Single taken.

18.5Bumrah to Smith

1
Full on off, Smith drives it to mid off for another easy single.

18.4Bumrah to Binny

1
Outside off, punched through the off side for a single.

18.3Bumrah to Smith

1
SAFE AS A HOUSE. Full and outside off, Smith pushes it towards point and sets off for a quick single. The fielder gets to the ball and has a shy at the bowler's end and hits the stumps. They all appeal and the umpire refers it upstairs. Replays show that the bat is dragged well in.

18.2Bumrah to Binny

1
Bumrah bowls this short. Binny plays it towards the mid-wicket for a single. Smart batting. Singles will do for Rajasthan.

18.1Bumrah to Turner

W
OUT! PLUMB LBW! Ashton is gone and is this match turning? Wow, probably for the first time in his life, Turner may not like gold. Second consecutive golden duck for him. This is a ripper from Bumrah. A length ball from outside off, Ashton looks to defend but the ball skids on and catches him in front of the stumps. Bumrah appeals and that looks a dead duck.

17.6Pandya to Smith

2
Outside off, laced through the covers for a couple more. 8 runs and a wicket from the over.

17.5Pandya to Smith

4
FOUR! He will hit you to the fence all day. Short and outside off, Smith lashes it behind point and the ball beats the man diving at point!

17.4Pandya to Smith

1W
OUT! Scratch the insert below. Parag is indeed short! Probably Hardik did not appeal because it seemed too obvious to him. Outside off, Smith worked it through mid on and took the single. Parag wanted the second and called for it and the skipper obliged. The throw was a good one to Hardik and he took the bails off. Parag was more than a yard short, as per the replays.

HALF CENTURY FOR SMITH! He has got his milestone. But can he take his team home? Full and outside off, cuts back in sharply, Smith looks to force it through the off side but the ball skids through, takes the inner half of the bat and goes towards wide long on. Two runs taken. The raise of the bat comes but Smith knows that the job is not done yet.

16.4Bumrah to Smith

0
Full on off, Smith plays it to covers.

16.3Bumrah to Parag

1
A shorter delivery that hits Parag in the helmet. The ball goes to the mid-wicket. This looks like a leg bye but it seems like it has stuck his glove hence umpire gives it as a run.

16.2Bumrah to Smith

1
Full on leg, Smith flicks it with ease to fine leg. Smith is not happy with himself as he could have made full use of this poor delivery. Single taken.

16.1Bumrah to Smith

4
FOUR! Outstanding batting. Outside off, on a length, Smith just places this behind point. Third man races to his right and dives but in vain.
