Chasing a small target of 125, RR started aggressively as Shane Watson smashed three successive boundaries off Ryan Harris in the 2nd over. He followed it with two more including a beautiful drive straight down the ground in the fourth over off Harris. Watson (32) continued his assault with two consecutive boundaries off Parvinder Awana before the bowler had him caught by Mandeep Singh to give KXIP their first breakthrough.

Praveen Kumar had Rahul Dravid (9) and Stuart Binny (0) caught behind in the span of four deliveries to help KXIP force their way into the match. Some tight bowling by KXIP piled on the pressure and Piyush Chawla struck the body blow trapping Brad Hodge (15) leg before. Samson was given a reprieve on 4 when Harris put him down at slip and he made the most of it. RR needed 5 runs off the final over. Samson (27*) and Rahane (34*) who put on an undefeated partnership of 47 runs saw the team home with 4 balls remaining.

Earlier, RR won the toss and elected to field. They were rewarded immediately as S Sreesanth struck twice in his first over dismissing Adam Gilchrist (0) caught at mid-off before having Mandeep Singh (2) caught down at third man. It only got worse for KXIP as they lost Manan Vohra (3) run out by James Faulkner to send KXIP reeling at 10 for 3 in 3.3 overs.

The slide continued as Gurkeerat Singh Mann (10) fell, caught behind off Siddharth Trived and Rajagopal Sathish (11), just as he started to string a partnership together with David Hussey, edged Faulkner to the wicket-keeper. Trivedi struck again dismissing Hussey (41) who held the KXIP innings together as Dravid at mid-off held onto the catch on the second attempt. Kevon Cooper then struck sending back Chawla (7) and then bowing Mahmood (23) in his next over to reduce KXIP to 104 for 8. Kumar (15) who hit a six and two boundaries was run out. KXIP were finally bowled out for 124.

Presentation:

Adam Gilchrist: "We let 7-8 deliveries slip in the innings. We have been bowled out twice now, and it isn't acceptable. It starts at the top, with me. Then in the first 3-4 overs, we gave Shane Watson enough to hit, but we can't blame the bowlers because we didn't give them a good total to defend. But they fought hard."

Rahul Dravid: "It was pretty nervous in the end there. Heart rate around 150-155, but Rahane and the young kind Sanju Samson played really well, showed a lot of composure. We should have got there before the last over. It is a good cricket wicket, not all wickets should be 180-190, these ones make for good exciting cricket. So I am happy with the wicket. Faulkner has been exceptional for us, be brings in a lot of energy in the group. We are happy with the start we had, but we'll learn with the challenges."

James Faulkner is the Man of the Match: "I was very confident with the opportunity here with Royals. This wicket was very different from the one in Pune, not many slower balls here as there was some pace on the wicket. I might have hit the stumps by fluke."
