Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, 40th T20 Match IPL 2013

Commentary

Rajasthan won by 4 wkts | Rajasthan Royals Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Live Score, 40th Match

Mumbai are batting in the second match of the day. Change tabs and enjoy all the action. For now, cheers and bye..
Samson: 'First of all, I would like to thank my family, the team and my captain. I knew I would be sent up and I wanted to play my shots in the first 6 overs. It was a good pitch to bat on and I am happy with the way it went about.'
Sanju Samson is the MoM
Dravid: 'It was a really good performance, we were a bit on the backfoot after Chris got going. We pulled things back in nicely, Faulkner could not get his line right in the last over. Sanju played really well, I thought we were always in front of the game. We now go to Kolkata, it is always difficult to play them at the Eden Gardens.'
Kohli: 'Another loss, unfortunately. I thought we played well, fell 10-15 runs short, needed someone to bat out the innings. I thought I got out at the wrong time. Our bowling was a bit poor, we bowled too short and gave away crucial boundaries. Our bowlers got a bit excited seeing the conditions and made the same mistakes that we did against Mumbai. We have not been really beaten until the last two matches, but we can't give it as an excuse. Will look to do better in the next match.'
This is Bangalore's fourth loss on the road, they fought hard but end up being second best once again. Vinay bowled a superb last over, but he had very little to defend. Samson was a revelation, the 18 year old batsman took the attack to the bowler's with a fiesty display. Watson and Hodge made sure that his efforts did not go in waste. Rajasthan now go to 12 points while Bangalore stay on 12. Worryingly for the visitors, there are some cracks that are beginning to show.
