Commentary

That's it from Mumbai for today, an emphatic win for Rajasthan. Tomorrow's match between Punjab and Deccan is set to be a cracker. Enjoy it and cheers for now.

Man of the match Shane Watson: It's taken me a little while to do that, I've been hoping for a day to do that in the tournament so far. It's been a little late. It's always nice when two parts of your game come together. Shane has been an amazing mentor to me throughout my career, we'll definitely miss him but he won't be far away. He will always be around the Rajasthan Royals and me, in Australian cricket.

Shane Warne: When someone of the class of Shane Watson plays like that it shows you how good he is. Our intensity was up, it shows you how well we can play. I think we won six games, if we had won one or two more, we would have been right up there. When I retired in Jan '07, I thought that's it, I'll sit back and watch the game, but I have had four great years in the IPL. It's been a privilege and a pleasure to captain the Royals. Hopefully, I've helped Indian cricket. You never say never, especially in my life, but I would like to stay involved. I would like to say thank you to my teammates, they are a great group of guys and I am proud of the way they conducted themselves on and off the field.

Sachin Tendulkar: I don't want to make any excuses, there were not enough runs and then someone like Watson comes out and plays shots like that, we didn't have a chance. We needed just one victory out of our last five games. There will be some changes, because its a different surface which requires different planning.

Stay with us for the presentation. But let's go through the scenarios first.

If Punjab lose tomorrow, then MI and KKR are assured of a place in the last four. If they win by a CONSIDERABLY LARGE MARGIN, they will ensure KKR and MI will go into a shoot-out in the final league game. If KXIP win by a small margin, they will need KKR to beat MI, or for MI to beat KKR by a huge margin to go through.

Dravid: It was good to finish on a high, great way to send off Warney, he is a legend of the game and has been brilliant in our dressing room. It's been an up and down season for us, we've had quite a young side but today we've shown what we can do. It's easy to bat at the other end when someone is going like that. One year is a long time, but if I am fit and still playing well, I would like to come back. I've enjoyed it, I would have liked to be in the playoffs.

Shane Warne, in a grey tracksuit, shakes hands with Tendulkar. "Go well," you can hear him saying. He says goodbye to Malinga and the rest of the Mumbai team. RR want him to lead them off the field, he does with a wave of the hand. Goodbye Warney!

Warney goes out with a win. And what a win it was! Shanw Watson and Rahul Dravid have given RR a 10-wicket win, only the third in IPL history and Mumbai have some serious thinking to do ahead of their crunch game against KKR. If KXIP win tomorrow against DC, MI will have to beat KKR in their final group stage game. So, it's crunch time for them really.

Franklin to Dravid, FOUR runs, James Franklin comes into the attack and he goes out just as quickly. Dravid lofts that over deep mid-wicket, it was a tame delivery really, too short and Dravid was able to pick it up and send it for a bounce four to end the match
