That's it from the team for tonight. Binoy George and I are signing off. See you for more IPL action tomorrow.

Man of the Match Srinath Aravind: I would to congratulate all my trainers and my team-mates. I made mistakes in the first over and the second over but I came back well. This is my biggest day.

Virat Kohli: Dan wasn't fit so they asked me to captain this time. I was pretty keen so I said yes right away. I wanted some of the senior players to contribute because they are experienced international players. Zak, AB, Dilshan. Batting with Chris is the best and most dangerous seat in the house. Chris is batting like a dream and he is just pulling games off for us every time. We are not thinking of anything, just playing one game at a time, taking some plans into the middle and hopefully we can execute them.

Shane Warne: It's been great fun to play here for four seasons, it's been great fun, very enjoyable. Disappointing to finish off like that, we were 20 runs short and dropped a few catches. We've promoted a lot of young guys throughout India. It's been fantastic to impart some of my knowledge onto some of these guys, some have listened, some haven't. We'll play for a bit of pride in the next couple of games.

Stay with us for the presentation.

Spare a thought for Shane Warne, who has played his last match in front of his adopted home crowd in Jaipur. Very emotional moment as he says goodbye. Rajasthan's hopes of making it to the final four are quite slim now, not easy for the Aussie legend, who has given so much of himself into this competition.

Dilshan: We needed this win to qualify for the semi's. I am readyy happy with the boys performance today. I have really enjoyed playing at RCB. I am scared when I stand at the non strikers end and Gayle is hitting it like a rocket. The last few matches I have been batting really well but unfortunately I have to leave. I have to do my job in England and captain the Sri Lankan team but I was really enjoying it here.

Pankaj Singh to Kohli, SIX runs, the stand in skipper finishes it for Bangalore. Kohli goes down town and pulls of deep square leg. Bangalore win their sixth match in a row and have not lost a match since Gayle joined them.
