Presentation:

Bailey: "We have been trying to have a smaller gap between your best and worst cricket. We said we had a lot of batters capable of scoring between 20 and 40 but the pleasing thing tonight was we kept wickets in hand and building stands. Karanveer has been patient and bowled beautifully tonight. I thought Balaji and Rishi were excellent in the middle overs. Akshar too."

Marsh is the Man of the Match: "Enjoyed batting with Manan. The bowlers were fantastic. The ball was coming on really nicely, full credit to our bowlers. Good that we got a good win tonight."

That's it from us here. Two games tomorrow but the first of the two is inconsequential - between a team that has qualified and one that is out. Sunrisers winning will make things interesting.

Join us tomorrow. Thanks for your company. Cheers!

End of the match: Royals' defeat will come as a huge relief for Mumbai Indians who are still in with a chance. The battle for fourth place is still on.

Watson: "Very good wicket. I'm a culprit for losing my wicket. Faulkner has been incredible with the bat. We have got to pick ourselves up from tonight's game. The game against Mumbai Indians is a knockout."

Peculiar batting order from the Royals. Questions will be asked why Hodge and Faulkner was sent in so late, ahead of Binny and Tewatia.
