   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match : Brad Hodge Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore (15 May 2011)

Superb opening spell by KTK pacers saw RR crash to 32/3 after 6 with 40% COW. Watto and Menaria raised some hopes of recovery before Hodge ran through the middle order as RR were wiped out for just 97 in 18.3 overs with 20% COW. There was only one result possible and it was pretty clear as McCullum smashed 4 sixes as he raced to 29 off 12. Despite both openers falling early, KTK were 59/2 after 4 with 99% COW. Patel and Hodge did not go easy as they hammered away at hapless RR attack to end the match with 12.4 overs to spare.

  1st Innings (RR) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: KRR 22/2 RR 42% Rajasthan’s start could be considered
      perfect only by Kochi who got both the opening batsmen early and putting a revamped Rajasthan on the mat. Rajasthan’s chances decreased by 6% during this period.
arrow 10 overs: RR 69/5 RR 36% Watson took out his Bangaldesh form on
      poor Prashanth hitting his over for 3 sixes but all in all a poor period for Rajasthan who lost half their side .Rajasthan’s chances decreased by 3% during this period.
arrow 18.3 overs: RR 97/10 RR 20% Surprise, surprise, It was Brad Hodge
      who finished the Rajasthan lower-middle and lower order,maybe Hodge still hopes for an Australia call-up .Rajasthan’s chances decreased by 16% during this period.
  2nd Innings (KTK : Target 98) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 7.2 overs: KTK 98/2 KTK 100% Kochi played for their net-run-rate and
      Brad Hodge perfected his man of the match performance to finish the match before the time-out and allowed us to go home before the Home Shopping Network takes over TV. Kochi won by 8 wickets.
