Presentation:

Dravid: I think we had them on the mat, left it too late, Morkel bowled an excellent over and this will hurt for sure. I am proud of my team, there are not too many big players but they are fighting hard. They would have gained a lot from winning the game. We need to pick up our game and play Delhi again. Credit to how Rahane batted, he was in the Indian team and he is out and will look to score tons and tons of runs.

Sehwag: Bowlers did an excellent job, Morkel did really well, I asked him to be free and bowl with freedom. I also thought we were losing this when they needed 14 off two but superb bowling from the duo.

Sehwag, who is also the man of the match: I think I am loving this format, trying to bat through the first half of the innings and then take it on.

That was Rajasthan's game to be lost when they needed 15 off the last two overs with nine wickets standing. Suddenly Morne Morkel produced an excellent penultimate over and Rahane hit a smacking six off the fourth ball of the last over to almost push it to the Super Over.

Rahane: It has been going well with Dravid, seven matches to go, hope to do well. We play at home, but we need to do better than today because they have some excellent players in their team.

Morne Morkel: Want to bowl well in the back end of the game, that is an important portion of the game and I was lucky to do well today. Hours and hours of practice bowling yorkers, also it is a confidence thing.

Yadav to Rahane, OUT, out, run-out! Missed the bat, and they went for a bye, the wicket-keeper managed to throw the stumps down and Shah is run-out...heart-break for Rahane.

Yadav to Rahane, 2 runs, goes to the off-side and plays it to the deep square leg region for a couple. The fielder was up there and they had to come over from mid-wicket.

Yadav to Rahane, SIX runs, Woohooo! What a stroke, what a player! Full-toss, low one at that and he has opened his bat for the ball to go over point for a six! I rub my eyes!

Yadav to Shah, 1 run, tries to slog it over leg-side and gets an inside edge, only for a single.

Yadav to Rahane, 1 run, broken bat! He had just changed the bat and he mistimes it so badly that the handle remains in his hand and the willow made its journey on to the pitch. Only a single.

Yadav to Rahane, no run, outside the off stump, full-toss and at 148.5 km/hr and Rahane misses it!

Wide open this game. 12 needed off six. Umesh Yadav has the ball. Rahane to face. Crowds on their feet. So am I.
