Let me be blunt here. Rajasthan were ordinary for most part. They should have had Tendulkar caught at 45, they should have communicated better while running. They will look back at this match with regret. And it had to happen in front of their home crowd, this is their first ever loss at home.

Zaheer, in an interview, was just asked how criucial that dropped catch off Sachin was. He said, very matter of factly, "That would have been a no-ball anyway, it was the second bouncer of the over." Was it? We should re-run the tapes to find out. Stay with us for the presentation.

Regarding Mumbai, there's a chance that five teams will be locked on 16 points, which will come down to net run rate. Mumbai are as likely to miss the semis as Punjab are likely to make them.

Warne: "I thought we had the game under control for a while but Sachin took over. The run rate could become crucial. We need to finish our innings better. We thought 170 was a par score but credit to them. Bit of panic at the start and too many run-outs."

Tendulkar is the Man of the Match: "I thought 170 was competitive, full marks to our fast bowlers, esp Zaheer. The target was to stay till the end. Fielding was very sharp, when all gels together it's a special performance. I better keep scoring fifties (because Mumbai usually win when he scores)."

That's it from us here. Thanks for your company today. Cheers guys.
