Commentary

The Royals continue to remain unbeaten at home. This was going to be a tough chase after RCB reached 171, but Samson, Watson, Hodge, and Binny all played their part in helping get Royals over the line. Sidharth Monga's report should be getting updated here, so do watch out for that. The Royals and RCB are now tied on points, with RCB having played one game more. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Take care, and switch over to the Mumbai-Punjab game at the Wankhede.

Kohli: "Another loss unfortunately. We were 10-15 runs short. Rajasthan batted really well. I got out at the wrong time, one batsman who could have added another 20-30 runs could have changed things. We got really excited looking at the wicket, didn't bowl at a good length. We bowled really short initially and gave many boundaries."

Dravid: "We were on the back foot in the first six overs, with Gayle going the way he did. The way we batted in the first six, and the way Sanju batted, we just seemed in control right through. With 13 in two overs, I thought it was going to comfortable. We need to focus a game at a time. Lot of cricket left to be played."

Sanju Samson is Man of the Match, what a moment for him: "I would like to thank my family, my team. I was prepared for it and it's my day. I was trying to get maximum runs in the Powerplay." A man of few words.

That's it from us, thanks and goodbye.

Vinay Kumar to Binny, FOUR runs, four, four, four, slower one and Binny pulls it over midwicket, there is a man placed at deep midwicket, he runs to his left, dives, stretches but can't stop it, was beyond his reach, Rajasthan have won

What an over so far, 3 needed off 2 now, is this another Super Over game?

Superb fielding by Virat in the deep. It had to end this way didn't it? The birthday boy Faulkner walks in to face his nemesis Vinay. 4 off 3.
