When the two Shanes shone

Shane Warne did what he's been doing for more than a decade and a half while the other Shane, Watson, showed what a valuable acquisition he is at $125,000

Scorecard summary
Kings XI Punjab166/8(20 overs)
Rajasthan Royals168/4(18.1 overs)

Jadeja is doing a tv interview: " The wicket was very good for batting. I was just thinking about singles, doubles and keep the strike rotating. There was some pressure playing in front of full house but I am very happy with the way I played. I just went in with a positive frame of mind. Warnie said, bat till the last over, just keep going."

Hang on for the post-match ceremony. We will bring you the quotes.

Yuvraj: We had a good start but lost many wickets and the score wasn't enough in the end. I thought it was competitive but Watson played well. We have to improve our batting and bowling.

Shane Warne: We were pretty disappointed the way we played Delhi. We have a good young side. I thought Munaf Patel bowled well at the start, then Shane Watson in the end. All credit to Jeremy snapes and the rest of support staff for getting the team together. We have bounced back well. We will get the likes of Graeme Smith, Younis Khan and Mascarenhas. Smith will add a lot to this team. We will produce a few upset along the way. We will do ok"

Man of the Match: Shane Watson: " It was a great team effort. Shane Warne bowled absolutely beautiful. Ravindra Jadeja really batted well and took lots of pressure off me. I am getting just used to the conditions. It's fairly different from Australia - this one was a lot closer to conditions in Australia and I loved it."

That's it from me, Sriram Veera. Thanks for joining in for the commentary. Join us tomorrow for yet another game from the IPL. Till then, Good bye and good luck.
