That ends what we have to offer you tonight. A weekend of double headers is in store. Go hydrate yourself and come back tomorrow. Cheers

R Ashwin, who is the Man of the Match: "One of the important things about this attack is that most of the bowlers can bowl at any time. I know my role comes up when the game is nicely poised. An over where a wicket is needed or the pressure is up. You have to be brave at that time and put your hand up. Today the ball was soaking well, and the sweat didn't help much."

Shreyas Iyer: "I a really happy with the way we came out after first innings. We thought this might be an under-par total but the bowlers did their job. The wicket did surprise us a little bit because we thought it would quicken up with the dew. I am really happy with the way the bowlers execute their plans. I am also really happy with the support staff who prepare us so well. We have to be consistent with out approach. That should be our mindset, and not take anything lightly."

Steven Smith: "Not playing good enough over the full 40 overs. We are doing some good things in patches, but unfortunately not executing well under pressure. I think we gave a few away in the end. The wicket was not as good as it has been. It was a little stoppy. We gave away 10-15 too many. Ben Stokes comes out of quarantine tomorrow, we play day after. He hasn't had any practice. So we will need to have a chat around that."

Delhi Capitals were pushed tonight. Rajasthan Royals bowled well at them, and DC were quite short of what we have seen scored in Sharjah. It was an interesting challenge, and the way their middle order responded with positive batting despite falling wickets, and the way their bowlers responded with hostile aggression and precision will be highly satisfactory to the DC leadership

Rabada to Aaron, OUT

looks to ramp a slower short ball but sends it only as far as a limping Pant can go to catch. Is it a cramp or is it a strain? Rabada has three

Varun Aaron is the last man in

Abhinandan : "All the criticism thrown at yashaswi seems little harsh to me. I have seen him play in domestic matches last season. He can hit them ball clean and big. I just think the big stage and quality of bowling is making him nervous and Rest of batting of RR hasn't helped either."

Nortje to Tewatia, FOUR runs

Rabada drops. This short ball gets big on Tewatia, who pulls this more high than long. Rabada moves to his right at long leg, gets to it, but can't hold on. He is a few yards in so he has to leap. Had he been on the fence, this would be an easy catch

18.4
Nortje to Tewatia, no run

low full toss, driven to deep point, but he turns down the single again

Abhishek: "Next match Manan Vorah should get a chance in place of Jaiswal"

Tewatia has some belated fun. Gets an on-pace length ball on off, and uses the angle and the pace to hit him over cover-point for six

Joshua John The: "Be honest guys. You should definitely give the Man of the match award to Shimron Hetmyer. Scored enough runs to defend, took some stunning catches to seal the chase. Do you want anything else?"

Harshal to Gopal, OUT

Hetmyer you beautiful beautiful fielder. His second stunning diving catch in the deep. Gopal makes room to loft this length ball inside out. Hetmyer dives to his left and also in front to take this clean. The soft signal is out. The hard signal has to be out as he has his fingers under it. The third umpire is convinced after watching many replays
