17.3 - Comment! Rajasthan Royals won by 7 wickets.
17.3 - Comment! Dhoni: Fair enough, this season we were not really there. Also the youngsters, we did not see the spark to push the guys. But what this result has done is give those youngsters a chance in the rest of the tournament. There was a bit for the fast bowlers. The reason I brought on Jadeja was to see how much it is stopping. But it did not stop much. In the second innings I think it got better because our spinners did not get the same bite. It is about going back to the process, and then see if the process is wrong. We play in front of millions of people so there is nothing to hide. We are trying a few things. You do not want to chop and change. Insecurity is something you do not want to prevail in the dressing room.
17.3 - Comment! Steven Smith: Tewatia and Shreyas have been sensational for us. Buttler took the pressure off me. I just knocked it around, and he just batted the way he usually does. He always maintains a good strike-rate. I did not know I would nicked the ball (LBW call), but I was relieved to see that I had. Sharjah is a little different from here. The wicket was stoppy, not the best for batting, and good to be on the winning side. I thought we bowled well in the powerplay. The spinners bowled good lengths, with the googlies and leggies, building a lot of pressure.
17.3 - Comment! Man of the Match - JC Buttler (Rajasthan Royals):- Runs:70 - Balls:48 - 4s:7 - 6s:2 - S/R:145.83.
17.3 - Comment! Jos Buttler: I am happy (batting at number 5) to do whatever the team needs to me do. This is my role for now. Nice to get a win on the board tonight. I tried to come out with some intensity in my batting. I did not think I had enough last game, and I decided to take a few more options tonight, and it came off. You have to keep trusting yourself and particularly when there is no scoreboard pressure, you can play yourself in and let cut loose in the end.
17.3 - Comment! That is it for this match. Hope you all had enjoyed our live coverage. Join us tomorrow for more cricketing action. Bye for now and God bless you all.
