3.4 overs (0 Run) DROPPED! KL Rahul is the culprit! Good length ball outside off, Samson looks to drive but gets an outside edge. It goes towards the keeper where Rahul dives and tries to take the catch but spills it. Will this prove costly for Punjab?
3.3 overs (1 Run) Length delivery on off, Buttler punches it through covers for a single.
Jos Buttler is the new man in. A lot will depend on this pair now as Rajasthan are off to a tumultuous start. If they are to get anywhere close to this target this pair will need to bat a long way.
3.2 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Good return catch from Arshdeep Singh! Full on middle, Vohra smashes it uppishly towards the bowler where Arshdeep Singh takes an excellent return catch.
3.1 overs (0 Run) Good length delivery on off, Vohra keeps it out.
2.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Gets enough on it. Good length delivery on middle and leg, Samson pulls it but the ball is actually not there for that shot. The Rajasthan skipper manages to get enough wood on it and get it past mid-wicket for a boundary.
2.5 overs (0 Run) Better from Shami! Shami pulls his length back around off. Samson punches it awkwardly to mid off.
2.4 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Beautiful! What a shot! This is the reason why Samson is so highly rated. Full outside off, Sanju gets on his front foot and drives it elegantly through covers for a boundary.
The physio is out now to have a look at Sanju Samson!
2.3 overs (0 Run) Ouch that must have hurt! Shami hits the deck hard around leg. Samson looks to pull but misses and gets hit on the inside of his pad on his knee. That surely must have stung the Rajasthan skipper.
2.2 overs (0 Run) Full on middle, Samson plays it to mid on.
2.1 overs (0 Run) Good length delivery on off, Samson keeps it out.
1.6 overs (2 Runs) IN THE AIR AND DROPPED! Murugan Ashwin is the culprit! Fullish ball outside off, Manan Vohra swings at it but does not time it. He gets it off the outer half of his bat and it goes high in the air. It flies to the right of third man. Murugan Ashwin there moves to that side. The ball pops in and out of his hands. He juggles but fails to hold onto it. Two taken. A lifeline for Vohra and just like Rajasthan, Punjab have dropped a catch too.
1.5 overs (0 Run) Much better! Good length ball around off, Manan looks to play it to mid on but closes the face of the bat a fraction early. Luckily for Vohra, it falls well short of mid on.
1.4 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Excellent shot but a delivery asking to be punished! Richardson strays on the pads. It is an easy ball for any Indian batter. He once again uses his wrists and flicks it behind square leg for a boundary.
1.3 overs (0 Run) Good length ball coming in to the right-hander. Vohra keeps it out.
1.2 overs (0 Run) Length ball on off, Vohra defends it.
1.1 overs (6 Runs) SIX! Manan Vohra gets off the mark for Rajasthan with a glorious biggie. He warmed the bench the whole of last season but now he has been given a chance to impress and he has started with a bang. On the pads and full, Manan uses his wrists and elegantly lofts his flick over fine leg for a biggie.
1.1 overs (1 Run) WIDE! False start for Jhye Richardson! He misses his line and bowls one down the leg side. Manan looks to flick but misses. Wided by the umpire.
Who will share the new ball? It will be Jhye Richardson.
0.6 over (0 Run) Excellent first over from Shami. Just a boundary off the first over. Good length ball on off, Samson defends it to see off the first.
0.5 over (4 Runs) FOUR! Rajasthan get their first runs of the season! Skipper Sanju Samson is off the mark in style. On the pads, Samson flicks it uppishly but well over short mid-wicket and gets a boundary.
0.4 over (0 Run) Length ball on off, Samson starts with a solid block.
Skipper, Sanju Samson walks out at 3.
0.3 over (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! A collision but Shami has managed to take the catch and the dangerous Ben Stokes has departed without troubling the scorers. A massive blow for Rajasthan and a big wicket for Punjab. Kumble would have told them to get rid of Stokes as soon as possible and Shami, the man returning from injury has sent big Ben back in the very first over. Length ball on middle. Stokes looks to pull but the ball is not short enough for that. It takes the leading edge and goes high in the air. Hooda comes from point. Shami wants the catch himself. Rahul has the gloves and he calls for it. Shami and Rahul collide but Shami manages to take it in his mitts.
0.2 over (0 Run) Good length delivery on the pads, Stokes tucks it to the on side.
0.1 over (0 Run) Ohh! Almost a boundary to begin but Stokes has hit it too straight. Shami starts with a full ball around off. Stokes drives it straight down the ground but it hits the stumps at the other end.
