Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 5 Runs | KXIP: 133/8

  • S Sreesanth4 (8b)
  • RR Powar6 (7b)
  • SK Trivedi4-0-20-1
  • A Singh4-0-9-3

Clinical performance by Rajasthan. They took the score past 200 and the bowlers did the perfect job by hitting the deck hard and creating opportunities. Punjab virtually threw in the towel after an ordinary performance in the field and didn't have the stomach for a target of 212. Rajasthan have the habit of unearthing two heroes and today they had two - Ojha and Amit Singh.

Rajasthan now jump to No.2. They are tied on points with Chennai but behind on Net Run Rate.

Unexpected bad day in the office for Punjab. The beauty of this IPL is that the teams (with the exception of Kolkata) have found ways of coming back. So Punjab will look at today as a bad dream.

Stay with us for the presentation.

Yuvraj: "Totally outplayed. Went for too many runs. Wanted at least 60 in the first 6 overs but we lost three. We've got to win 90% of our games now."

Warne: "Great to see Smith stamp his authority. Great to see Ojha bat the way he did. The guys showed a lot of character. Nice to be back at the top of the table."

Smith is the Man of the Match: "About time. I was messing around in the first few games. I was a little tense back then, Nice to get in and hit it around."

That's it from us. Thanks for the mails. Kolkata v Delhi will start very soon. Goodbye.

Trivedi to Sreesanth, FOUR runs, that's a cracker of a shot! But too late, he crashes a full delivery down the ground and long-off dives in vain
