  • Chaminda Vaas4-0-36-1

Kallis, Misbah, Dravid, White and Akhil contributed their might towards the chase and in the end it all boiled down to the absence of fifth bowler in the Chargers line up.

This result ensures that Chargers will finish at the bottom of the table and walk away being the wooden spoon of the tournament

Gilchrist bluntly says they (the team) dont have the skills and would need to develop the requisite skills

Dravid feels that Royal Challengers did well in the final overs and praises Vinay Kumar and Akhil for rising to the occasion

Vinay Kumar is the Man of the match

Join us back for the second match of the day in Kolkata.
