Indian Premier League - 72nd match

Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 10 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)

All set for the start in Jaipur. Dravid out to open, so is Rahane, there is a slip for RP Singh

Rahul Dravid has won the toss and Rajasthan will have a bat

Dravid says that 160-170 is probably par here. Harbhajan says he would have batted first as well.

Mumbai are resting Herschelle Gibbs and Munaf Patel. Munaf could do with a bit of cooling off, he's been losing his top regularly this season. Ravi Shastri tells Harbhajan that things will be quiet on the field with Munaf out.

Dhawal Kulkarni is playing in place of Munaf. Harbhajan forgets the second change, Dravid reads it out from the team-sheet Harbhajan has handed over to him. James Franklin it is. "Thanks, Rahul," says Harbhajan.

Dishant Yagnik is in for Shreevats Goswami. Now it is Dravid's turn to forget the second change Royals have made. Before Harbhajan can bail him out, he remembers. Brad Hogg in for Johan Botha

7.25 pm We are down to the last league game this IPL season. 72 games in 47 days. The fourth and final playoff spot has been decided by the 71st game moments ago, with Deccan Chargers knocking out Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings sneaking through. Mumbai Indians will now meet CSK in the eliminator in Bangalore on Wednesday. Before that, they play Royals today, now then, we can do with one inconsequential game amid a glut of 72 games, can't we?

Rahul Dravid: "I am proud of the way we have played. We made some of the big teams earn their victories. We are disappointed at some of the close games we lost."

sundar: "I can tell you that the other three metros will not be thanking Deccan for letting chennai back in. Bangalore can be controlled. All they have to do is get gayle and de villiers out and they will lose, like they did today. But chennai is far more resilient and you don't want to give them second chances. mumbai would have preferred bangalore in the eliminator instead of chennai."
