We're done with this one. A contrast in fortunes and the mood tonight in both camps. While Rajasthan grab their first win of the season, Bangalore are still in search of theirs. Virat Kohli and his men would like to turn things around quickly. Moving on, the next game takes place on Wednesday, at 2000 local (1430 GMT), as Mumbai take on Chennai at the Wankhede Stadium. You don't want to miss that one. See you, folks!
Shreyas Gopal is the Man of the Match. He says that he is lucky and happy to get those big wickets. Once again iterates that he is fortunate to have got the wickets of Kohli and de Villiers. Reckons that the pressure was exerted by the bowlers before him and he got lucky as he picked those wickets. Mentions that the execution of the plans was done well on their side. Informs us that he is not the best person to ask about the leg spinners doing well and thinks that it is all about bowling to your plans.
Ajinkya Rahane, the Rajasthan skipper, thought that the pitch would be a 150-160 one right from the beginning and expected the dew to come in. Reserves extreme praise for his spinners, especially Shreyas Gopal. He mentions that the plan was to bowl well upfront and that Gowtham did well on that aspect. He informs that the relief of getting off the mark is immense. Signs off by saying that it was a wonderful team effort and hopes it will continue in the games to come as well.
Yuzvendra Chahal, the leading wicket-taker in the tournament this season, feels good about getting the award for the same but is disappointed about losing the game. He reckons that leg spinners do well because they have a lot of variations and even though they go for runs, they get a lot of wickets. He informs us that despite it being the fourth loss in a row, there is no point being negative because it won't help the cause.
Virat Kohli, the Bangalore skipper, feels that today's performance was more competitive but they were 15-20 runs short. He reckons that those extra runs would have played a vital part even with the dew around. Also feels that they cannot afford to drop so many chances in such kind of a game. On this being the fourth loss in a row, he says that these kind of things look bad when they happen and that they'd have liked at least a win if not two out of the four games played so far. He states that they would still like to believe and hope to get on a roll with ten games left. He does take some positives out of this game and deducts that his side played decent cricket tonight as well as against Mumbai. Hints that the tournament is not a very long one like everyone thinks it to be and to get the combination right is not too easy by just chopping and changing. He signs off by saying that turning around things will happen over time but what is in their hands is to field the best possible eleven and try to put their best performance ahead.
Bangalore needed wickets. At the start, in the middle and towards the end, but it didn't come when they wanted. The dew didn't help their cause, along with the decent total, but they still could have been in with a chance had they taken their chances towards the fag end of the game. 2 or 3 good chances went down, that too of key batsmen, which could have maybe changed the outcome. Something doesn't end up clicking for Bangalore, which becomes their downfall. Earlier in the evening, Parthiv's fifty, along with Stoinis and Ali's late hitting, saw the visitors post 158 on the board. It eventually wasn't enough for them to bag their first points of the season.
First win of the season for the team in pink. The fact that it's come in front of their home crowd will please them more and give them some much-needed confidence for the campaign. They were right on top from the moment this chase began. Buttler and Rahane took their side off to a flier and from that point on, it was smooth sailing as they pretty much set the tone for the rest to come. Buttler went on to score his fifty. After his departure, Smith and Tripathi sealed the deal, with the latter scoring the winning runs and remaining unbeaten.

Umesh Yadav To Rahul Tripathi
SIX! What a way to finish things off! Tripathi doesn't let it go into the Super Over and calmly gets his side over the line. Short ball and it's pulled with absolute control, flat over the mid-wicket fence. RAJASTHAN WIN BY 7 WICKETS!

Umesh Yadav To Ben Stokes
Scores are level now! We could have a Super Over if Umesh can hold his nerve somehow. Good save from the man at point on this occasion. Stokes cuts it square where the fielder dives to his right and stops a certain boundary.

Mohammed Siraj To Steven Smith OUT!
OUT! Taken this time. Umesh Yadav the man to gobble it up. Virat Kohli applauds that. Smith backs away to this fuller length ball and looks to clear long on. Can hit it only as far as the fielder who takes it well this time. A wicket finally comes, but maybe a little too late.

Mohammed Siraj To Rahul Tripathi
Another DROPPED OPPORTUNITY! This time it's Moeen Ali who can't hold on. Virat Kohli is living watching this. Tripathi pulls it over square leg and Ali out in the deep runs to his right. He slips while running and that's why the ball slips through his palms. One run to the total.
18.4

Mohammed Siraj To Steven Smith
Has that carried? Seems like it has. Yes, it has. It's a DROPPED CHANCE! Substitute Pawan Negi makes a good effort, but he should have caught it. Steven Smith mistimes his pull shot towards mid-wicket. Negi there runs in, dives, gets his fingers under it but can't hold on. Single taken.

Chance of a run out! Just not Bangalore's night, it seems. Tripathi plays it to de Villiers at short mid-wicket. Smith takes off, but then turns back. AB misses his shy at the bowler's end. Smith wasn't even in the frame.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Steven Smith
DROPPED! Is that the game-changing moment? It has to be, doesn't it? Unbelievable. The simplest of catches, really. Tossed up leg break around off, spins away, Smith opens his body up and goes inside out. What should have been a straightforward catch to Umesh Yadav at sweeper cover, ends up becoming a missed chance. The batsmen take one. Virat Kohli is not a happy camper. No, sir.
Strategic break. Rajasthan on course to win this game. Just need 38 to win in 30 balls, with 8 wickets in hand. Unless there is a massive collapse, this game is theirs to win. Also, Yuzvendra Chahal is back on.

NOT OUT! The back foot is firmly in the crease even as Smith had lost his balance. A flighted ball outside off, Smith looks to play a shot onto the leg side but fails to connect the ball and loses his balance. The keeper collects the ball and whips the bails off. He asks the question to the square leg umpire who takes it upstairs. The replays show that the Aussie is safely inside the crease. He did well there not to drag his feet out or lift it.
Stumping appeal taken upstairs. Steven Smith is the man in question. Looks like his back foot was in the crease. Let's see what the replays have to say.

Mohammed Siraj To Ajinkya Rahane
He's timing it well. Rahane waits for the length ball to come to him before opening the face and running it down to third man for one.
Strategic break. A much-needed one for Bangalore. They are bleeding runs and really need to regroup. Buttler and Rahane have taken the attack to the hosts' bowlers and have come out successful so far. The introduction of the spinners could work wonders for the home side. It needs a wicket and fast.

Navdeep Saini To Ajinkya Rahane
Quick single, this is good running between the wickets. Rahane pushes it to mid on and takes the fielder on. He scores a direct hit, but the Rajasthan captain makes it in with a dive. That's the end of the Powerplay. Rajasthan are 55/0, while Bangalore were 48/0.

Navdeep Saini To Ajinkya Rahane
FOUR! Takes the aerial route and gets the desired result. This is very good batting from Ajinkya Rahane. Fuller length ball on the fifth stump line, it's lofted cleanly over covers for a boundary.

Navdeep Saini To Jos Buttler
Edgy FOUR! No trouble at all for Buttler though, he will welcome it all night long. Full ball outside off, the Englishman pushes at it away from the body and gets a thick edge past short third man. This is the third boundary of the over.

Navdeep Saini To Jos Buttler
FOUR BYES! Buttler's missed out, shouldn't have been a boundary at all but the keeper's made a mess of that. It's Akshdeep Nath behind the stumps, not sure where Parthiv Patel is for now. Length ball coming back in, Jos swings and misses. It goes through the left of the keeper and away to the boundary line behind.

Navdeep Saini To Jos Buttler
Swing and a miss from Jos. It's there to be hit, fullish and outside off, so he looks to go big downtown but fails to make connection.

FOUR! That's cracked! Short and wide outside off, Rahane cuts this hard through point. Pierces the gap there and ends the over with a boundary. Everything about that shot was perfect. 15 runs from this over, Rajasthan are off to a flying start.

Umesh Yadav To Ajinkya Rahane
FOUR! Poor line. Down the leg side, all Rahane has to do is get something on it and he does that. Tickles it past the diving keeper and sends it across the fine leg fence.

Umesh Yadav To Jos Buttler
In the air but well short of the fielder. Bouncer on middle and leg, Buttler pulls it to the man at fine leg on a couple of bounces. Just the one this time.
