Stay tuned for the interviews...
Bangalore will be deeply disappointed. Another season has gone and their trophy cabinet remains empty. They showed plenty of promise but failed to cross the last hurdle to get into the final. Their batting didn't operate at full strength once again. After the kind of start they had, Bangalore were in a good position to maximize the death overs but their innings nosedived and they managed just a below-par total. With the ball, the start from them was mediocre in the Powerplay and the writing was on the wall very early. They did try to create pressure later on but the damage was already done.
The start to the chase was bright and breezy from Rajasthan. Yashasvi Jaiswal hammered Mohammed Siraj for 16 runs to set the tone, and then Jos Buttler capitalized. He started in the top gear, contrastingly to his last knock, and notched up a quickfire fifty. Rajasthan enjoyed a great Powerplay and brought the asking rate down to 6.5. Samson also played a handy knock, but his departure slowed the scoring rate. The victory though was never in doubt, and Rajasthan eventually crossed the line in the 19th over. Jos Buttler struck yet another century and stayed till the end.
Rajasthan have decimated Bangalore and stormed into the final! Very clinical show from the Pink team, both with the bat and ball, and they deserve to contest for the trophy in the final - first time since 2008.

Shahbaz Ahmed To Yashasvi Jaiswal
IN THE AIR... Falls safely! Flighted and full, outside off, Jaiswal mistimes his slog-sweep over mid-wicket. Faf du Plessis runs across to his left from long on but it lands away from him. Two runs taken. The intent from both the batters is clear.
Shahbaz Ahmed is into the attack.
