That's all from us. Time to move over to the next match - Kings XI v KKR.. Catch you over there.

"It's was great way for us to bounce back after that loss against Chennai" says Shane Watson. "He (Tambe) is very skillful and reads the batsman's mind very well. He is very cagey bowler, I play him a lot of the nets. this pitch was slightly drier than the last time we played here."

Pravin Tambe is the Man of the Match

"Looks like we didn't arrive on the field today," says Virat Kohli. "It was one of those days that we need to forget quickly. The pressure created by Royals was extended over a long time. When you lose wicket every over, it builds up pressure. When I batted, I felt it was a good wicket, but that's what happens when you lose wickets."

"It's probably the most grass i will see for the next month," says Mitchell Starc, the purple cap holder. "We needed wickets, but unfortunately not enough runs on the board."

Watson gets a cheque for hitting two sixes, Ajinkya Rahane gets an award for keeping calm while running out Parthiv Patel.

After moving at snail's pace, the match finally ends. Just 141 runs scored for the loss of 14 wickets in 28 overs.The star of the day was Pravin Tambe for his four wickets, but a strange day for the batsmen. No one really looked comfortable today.

Sam: "Just imagine how Gayle is going to exact revenge the next time these sides meet. :)"

Sharma: "Will be interesting to see how Maxwell plays on this pitch..especially against the turn of Narine..."

Chahal to Nayar, 3 runs, he didn't read that googly at all, he edges it past the lone slip fielder to pick up three runs and register a win.. Not the best way to bring it, but this has been that kind of a match

Stuart Binny comes in..

Chahal to Watson, OUT, oh no! Watson tries to repeat the shot but is nowhere near the pitch of the delivery, only manages a big top edge to AB at cover. Chahal continues to impress - he slowed this one down intentionally
