Jaipur: Sep 21, 2013

Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid was impressed with the way the young batsmen remained calm while chasing the Mumbai Indians’ total and termed the performance as professional.

Dravid hailed the batting of Sanju Samson, Ajinkya Rahane and Stuart Binny as Rajasthan beat Mumbai by seven wickets in Jaipur on Saturday.

“A very professional performance in all departments, especially with the ball. There was a calmness to the batting as well and it’s really good to start off the tournament like this,” Dravid said at the post-match press conference.

“The batting was really good, with Rahane and Sanju playing two composed innings. They showed a lot of maturity and then Stuart, the ball he bowled to Sachin Tendulkar was a beauty, he’s exactly the kind of player you want at No 6 or 7 in T20,” he added.

Dravid said they let the rivals score a bit too much considering their good start but it was not unexpected as the rival batting line-up was quite good.

“We switched the bowlers around, and they did really well in the first ten. We may have given them a little too much in the last ten, but that happens when Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard are there in the middle.”

Royals’ paceman Vikramjeet Malik was adjudged Man-of-the- Match for his three-wicket haul.

“I knew the condition well. As advised by Dravid, I was just looking to find a good length to bowl and hit the deck around off stump and to move the ball,” said Malik.
