Commentary

With that, Rajasthan Royals march into the semi-finals with a convincing nine-wicket win and Perth Scorchers are out of the Champions League. Royals' bowlers did the job today, Kevon Cooper in particular, and Rahane and Samson made sure they were not bothered much during the chase. Scorchers looked out of place today, especially after they were asked to bat. That's all for you all today, thanks for all the comments and feedback, we'll see you for tomorrow' double-header. This is Vishal Dikshit signing off with our scorer Gopi Rangarajan, goodbye!

Ajinkya Rahane: It was a really nice pitch, good for bowlers and batsmen. This wicket was not fast compared to what we played against Mumbai Indians but the ball was doing a bit and holding its line. It was slightly tough initially but was easier later to bat on. I enjoy batting with Sanju, we were just talking about positive cricket while batting. We just need to concentrate on the next game and stay positive.

Simon Katich: We are learning the hard way, we didn't get many partnerships going and were about 50-60 short there. Out bowlers tried their best but nothing worked. We presented four caps the other day and that in itself is tough. Hopefully we'll get a fair bit of this before the Big Bash. We've seen how big the standard is here form the Big Bash and it's a different ball game. We're gonna have to try harder in the next few days.

Time for the presentation:

Rahul Dravid: It's nice to win and play well. It was a really good and clinical performance today. We can always improve and we can keep getting better, we also take a lot of satisfaction from the match today. Our bowlers pulled it back brilliantly today, like Jimmy, Coops and a lot of professionalism from Samson and Rahane who batted very well. Our next game is a big one and Otago is playing very good cricket, they are the team in form.

Kevon Cooper: Hapy to come out here and bowl well and give my team a chance of winning. The yorker is something I practice e a lot, it's very important in this format. It's great to play with players like Dravid, Watson and we sit and plan every game with the support staff. We wanted to play good cricket here and happy to do that.
