Commentary

That's all from us here. Goodnight and good luck

Quotes from the presentation
"Been the story of a few of our games," says Aaron Finch. "We played well. There were maybe a couple of overs we could have done better. Disappointing to get so close again, and lose out, but that seems to be the story so far. We couldn't take the wickets in the middle overs."

"It was a really good game," says Rahul Dravid. "We came back with the ball really well. At one point, 200 looked possible, but pulled them back. It's a good cricket wicket. There is something in it for the bowlers, but if you play well you can play your shots. 360 degrees. Good to see the youngsters finish it off in the end. Just the way everyone constructed it. Nut every day do you chase 180 without Watson and Hodge contributing big time.."

"180 was not easy to chase," says Ajinkya Rahane, the Man of the Match. "But overall everyone did well. Especially our bowlers came back,a dn I think they were 10-15 short. We just wanted to play cricketing shots, our normal game. I was disappointed to get when I did, but Stuart and Sanju did really well."

Dravid walks onto the field. Not hurried. Turns around and thanks the crowd too. Binny and Uthappa, opponents on the night, have a chat too. Royals are now one of the four teams tied at No. 2 on the table, RCB, Mumbai and Sunrisers being the others. This is getting all too interesting. All these four teams are also unbeaten at home. Stay with us for the quotes from the presentation

Parnell to Binny, FOUR runs, gets a length ball, drives it hard between mid-on and midwicket. Binny is thrilled. Faulkner congratulates him

Should the keeper come up now? He is not doing so. Everybody in the circle

Parnell to Faulkner, 1 run, Birla has missed it. Faulkner has played this off the back foot, straight to midwicket, Binny wants the single. Never mind the single, he wants the strike. Faulkner is short, but Birla's throw has missed

Two from three now

Parnell to Faulkner, 2 runs, full, outside off, dug out, Marsh makes a diving save at mid-off, but they take two because the ricochet has gone far

James Faulkner is in. Can they keep him on strike? Without giving him couples or boundaries, that is?

Parnell to Samson, OUT, there is the IPL-style twist. Short, quick, hurrying on him, Samson pulls this straight down to midwicket. Another good fielding effort by Birla. Jaipur is stunned into silence

Kumar to Samson, no run, good yorker, middle and leg, somehow misses the leg stump. Rawat does well with the dive to deny them byes

Is Samson going to have a go at this? That will take them home
