Presentation
Adam Voges is the Man of the Match "Very happy that the guys played very well, we cam back really well after that start. We have a got platform today, and it gave me the opportunity to play with freedom."

Shane Warne "One of those days where everybody contributed when they had to. Sid bowled fantastically. Bisla was smashing us all over the place, it was handy to get him out. Little bit sloppy in the field, but we showed a lot of character."

Kumar Sangakkara "It was just a case of batting sensibly for another four-five overs, which we didn't. Again we put ourselves in a position, but failed to convert. Story of our tournament. Lot of thinking to do, not just blind change of personnel."

Rajasthan are back at joint-fourth now. Some semblance of momentum there after a horrible start to their season. Shane Watson is expected by the end of the month too. Hang on for the presentation

Trivedi to Jayawardene, OUT, gone! no options really than to go after everything, and he goes straight down the ground, but gets too much under it and skies it to long-on

Trivedi to Jayawardene, no run, and another free hit goes unpunished, good bouncer, no room there, all Mahela needed was a tickle because third man was in the circle but it kept following him
