Rajasthan have been knocked out of the IPL. Kochi have a really slim chance, this win keeping them alive still. A mismatch. On a track that Jayawardene said merited around 150, Rajasthan were skittled out for next to nothing and a Kochi victory from there on was a foregone conclusion. Good way to sign off for Jayawardene, who'll join the Sri Lankan team in the UK soon. Join us in a bit for the presentation. No doubts about who's the MOM.

Shane Warne: "Probably one of those nights when you were 100-120 short. We can only try as much as we can. Disappointing for the fans. Such a great crowd and buzz here, I'm still proud of our guys. To lose four games in a row, we've just made too many mistakes."

Jayawardene: "The other day we couldn't defend 180, today we executed our plans. Easy win, so happy with that. We need to try and be more consistent, that's a key word in Twenty20 cricket. We want to finish off the season on a high and we'd like to say we had a good season."

Hodge is Man of the Match: "It's good for us to come up here and put in a good performance. Warne's got me out plenty of times, I got lucky to be honest. Used to bowl to him at the Junction Oval. We've performed pretty well. We are short of where we need to be, but it's coming together. We played with some freedom chasing a low total. We are up against Chennai, it's going to be a tough game but hopefully we can pull it off."

Thanks much for joining us folk,s please direct your attention to this thriller here. Until the next time, it's goodbye.
