With Trivedi's imploring plea to the BCCI to prepare more pitches like these, that will be it from Abhishek Purohit for this game. Go well

Siddharth Trivedi is the Man of the Match. Trivedi: "Ball was seaming a bit in the first innings, it really worked bowling wicket to wicket, suited my style of bowling. I enjoyed bowling here, in India, if you get such wickets, fast bowlers put in more effort. Tait is a good mate and he guides me when I approach him. Sometimes I feel he bowls 150 and I am only in 130s but I use what I have."

Rahul Dravid: "With the bat, we were at least 15-20 runs below par, but our bowlers responded very well. Partnership between Hodge and Yagnik got us there. Trivedi bowled a good spell, Gambhir's wicket was a big one, we picked regular wickets in the early overs. Look at their middle order, Pathan, Morgan, Tiwary, Gambhir, who wants to bowl spin to them, pound them with a bit of pace."

Gautam Gambhir: "We kept losing wickets at the wrong time. 144 was a good job done by the bowlers, it was a good wicket to bat on, we should have chased it, we played bad shots and kept losing wickets whenever we had a partnership. The way Brett bowled are very good signs for us. Hopefully we can get many more pitches like this."

Sreesanth cannot stop raving about the Jaipur pitch. Pace, seam, bounce, make for an interesting T20 game too. Bradley Hodge, veteran, showing his class with a 31-ball 46 that stretched the score out of KKR's reach. And Morgan, his coolness, almost stealing the game away

So Cooper having the decisive impact in another Rajasthan win. Pacy, bouncy pitch, and it was his offcutters that reined in runaway HMS Morgan.

Sreesanth: "Always great to bowl on a green top. Was nice to see five fast bowlers playing. Gambhir knows exactly what I bowl, so he was charging at me. What a wicket, man, I am still excited about this wicket, we should stick to this wicket."

Mahesh has been busy: "This time i did it..I counted that Dravid shook hands with 39 people...OMG!!"

Shailesh : "So Watson didn't bowl afterall! And to think of how much noise people were making about it at the start!"

Shad: "Surely, KKR must realize soon that Morgan should be playing at #3 or #4. There aren't many better T20 batsmen than Morgan ... calm cool collected with all the shots and more in the bag. KKR shouldn't waste him like MI waste Pollard."

Nikhil: "duh!!! so Its lack of will which stops us from making green tops i thot we dont have soil 4 that!!!"
