Commentary

| Rajasthan Royals Vs Mumbai Indians Live Score, 23rd Match

That's all that we have for you today. Join us tomorrow at 19:00 for the big single header Delhi vs Chennai. Bye bye.
Ajinkya Rahane: 'Again I just wanted to bat till the last over. We all know that Mumbai is a really big team and we just wanted to express ourselves. I was just playing my natural game. Watson is a crucial player for us. Everyone did their job really well.'
Ajinkya Rahane is the Man of the Match.
Rahul Dravid: 'It was brilliant. Couldn't have asked for a better game. Needed to bring the A game against Mumbai and we did. It was good team thinking. We were discussing a lot about such moves (like sending Yagnik up in the order). In these kind of games, you need to have the best people batting at the right place. Watson's start and Rahane batting through was important. When you beat a side like Mumbai, it does count for more.
Ricky Ponting: 'Yes, we were outplayed tonight. In all three departments of the game. Our bowling did not adjust in the first few overs. The wicket probably did a bit more in the second half, when we came out to bat. We need to talk about what happened tonight, it was a bad loss. We did not adapt quick enough to these conditions. Better to lose these games early in the tournament.
Binny:'It was a dream ball for me (the one that got Pollard). This wicket suited my style of bowling. Yes, he (Father Roger Binny) does help me out a bit.'
This loss is sure to affect Mumbai's net run rate. Biggest defeat for them in terms of runs. But they were up against a young and fired up Rajasthan team led by Dravid. He rotated his bowlers intelligently and kept smart fields. Trivedi, Chandila and Chavan bowled a good number of dot balls in the first 10 overs and Mumbai could never recover from the bad start. Binny chipped in with a couple of big wickets, especially that of Pollard and Faulkner finished off the tail. They move up to the top of the table with this win.
