17.3 - Comment! Rajasthan Royals won by 7 wickets.
17.3 - Comment! KL Rahul: We spoke to the groundsman, and he said there was no dew last game. You can not prepare for it, but you have to be able to adapt to that. On a sticky wicket, as it was when we batted, this was not a bad total. We did not bowl badly, but we need to learn to bowl better with the wet ball. It did get very very easy to bat on. The wrist spinners want the ball to be dry and get some grip off the surface but with the dew it got really difficult. The dew has been unpredictable. It has been the kind of season where nothing has come easy. We have had to work hard for every point.
17.3 - Comment! Steve Smith: The last two games he has been exceptional. Has good innovation, Hits the ball in weird areas. We know if he spends time in the middle, he will come good. Couple of games tomorrow, we will be matching them closely and then good to go day after. He is a valuable player. One of the best in the world. You are always talking to players and try to get the best of them. Ebbed and flowed. But would have been great to win a few in the middle. But it is about peaking at the right time. We still need to do our bit, We have different plans as to who goes in after who gets out.
17.3 - Comment! Man of the match - BA Stokes (Rajasthan Royals):- Runs:50 - Balls:26 - 4s:6 - 6s:3 - S/R:192.30.
17.3 - Comment! Ben Stokes: That is pleasing. We had a decent break from the last game. We normally have a quick turnaround. I cut down on the bowling part in the break to remain fresh. The sixes are always pleasing. I went in the same mentality like I did against MI. Wanted to go hard with the new ball. I think when you are in a position like we are, you have nothing to lose.
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 & God bless you all.
