Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, 14th T20 Match, IPL 2014

Commentary

Rajasthan won by 6 wkts | Rajasthan Royals Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Live Score, 14th T20 Match

That's it from this game. Hop tabs and feast on all the action from the second match of the day, pitting Kolkata against Punjab.
Tambe: 'I love bowling. The wicket was on the slower side and I decided to bowl the googlies to the left-handers. It really works for me.'
Pravin Tambe is the Man of the Match for his career best Indian T20 League figures of 4-20.
Watson: 'It was great to bounce back after a disappointing game against Chennai. It was an interesting game but it feels nice to walk away with a win. Tambe is amazingly skillful. He is very hard to get after. He is a cagey bowler. The pitch was little drier and two-paced. It was slower as well. I am sure everyone is really happy.'
Kohli: 'It's just one of those days! We kept losing wickets every over, it's hard to see in a T20 game but they bowled really well. The pressure created on us extended for a long time. Stroke-making becomes difficult as a result and that's what happened. It is a good wicket to bat on, it's just that we didn't play well. Hopefully we will bounce back well.'
The result seemed a foregone conclusion at the half-way mark but Bangalore showed some fight to force Rajasthan earn their stripes. The story could have been much closer had Bangalore got a decent total on the board. Stick around for the presentation ceremony.
