They are world-class batsman and it was hard to stop them when they got going. We had thought that 154 was a good challenging total but perhaps we had ended 30 runs short to have them under any sort of pressure," Roherer said.<br /> <br /> The Australian from New South Wales hit nine boundaries and one six to propel his team to a competitive total.<br /> <br /> "<a href="/tags/Rajasthan-Royals/post" target="_blank">Rajasthan Royals</a> also did a very good job. They did exactly what was needed. They showed a lot of patience and really played well."<br /> <br /> He also had a few words of praise for <a href="/tags/Pravin-Tambe/post" target="_blank">Pravin Tambe</a>, who made his IPL debut at the age of 41 years and 211 days.<br /> <br /> "He kept it simple but he has good control and length. He is one of those stories who didn't get the opportunities. But now I hope after his debut he would be getting more opportunities."<br /> <br /> Talking about his own innings, the Aussie said that it was his first major knock in four outings.<br /> <br /> "It took a few weeks to get adapted to wickets and atmosphere. I had to put my head around the changes I had to make."<br /> <br /> Referring to his experience of playing in the IPL, Rohrer said he was happy to be here.<br /> <br /> "It has been very good for me in Big Bash and 20-20 championship and I could make my debut to play for Australia A.<br /> <br /> "The IPL is the best 20-20 tournament in world and I want to extend my wonderful experience here to other tournaments in coming days."
