Done with this game. Looking forward to Sunday where two games are lined up. First up, Delhi will be hosting Bangalore at 1600 local (1030 GMT) followed by the clash between Kolkata and Mumbai at the Eden Gardens at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join us for all the action. Cheers!
Man of the Match, Jaydev Unadkat is relieved and says that he needed this as he has faced really tough times and this will boost his confidence. Adds that catches were sticking to his hands and in the same breath thanks the management for backing him. States that there is clarity of mind and also they assessed the surface well. Mentions that they knew the pitch will slow down after the Powerplay and it's going to get harder to bat.
Rajasthan skipper, Steven Smith starts by saying that he landed on the elbow while taking the catch of Warner and hopes it's fine as it hurt him on the impact. Adds that it's a good end to their home season. Feels that the change in pace did work for them and 160 was around par. Praises Liam Livingstone and Ajinkya Rahane for providing the start and then lauds Sanju Samson for finishing things off. Mentions that it's all about playing together as a group and winning the key moments that they didn't at the start. Wants to keep winning. Says that he has got one more game to go this season before he heads back to Australia and hopes to do well for the team.
Sanju Samson is up for a chat next. He smiles and says that the winning shot was more satisfying. On the nick off Pandey, Samson replies that when Smith asked him he did not feel like there was an edge. Credits the team for showing great character as it's not easy to come out and play like this when you are second last in the league table. He still hopes of qualifying for the playoffs. Appreciates the home crowd and thanks them for coming out in numbers to support them.
Hyderabad skipper, Kane Williamson says that the nature of the surface was such that the new batsman was going to find it difficult. He felt the match was in the balance at the halfway stage. Credits Rajasthan for the way they played. Singles out Manish Pandey's performance and hopes he continues his good form. Tells it is about margins in this format. Admits Rajasthan played well and Hyderabad were looking to squeeze in a wicket or two but were not able to do so. Mentions that he is excited to go back to Hyderabad and wants to play a good game there.
A thumping win for Rajasthan and they have kept themselves in the hunt with back-to-back wins. It can be termed as one of their better performances this season. Their bowling was right on the money after a poor start with everyone contributing equally. Chasing a target of 161, usually you need one good partnership and their new opening pair provided that. Rahane and Livingstone put together a 78-run stand and that nearly put the chase to bed. Agreed, there were a few stutters in between but Rajasthan never got under any kind of pressure. A word of praise for Sanju Samson also, who batted through and stayed unbeaten. With this win, Rajasthan have moved to sixth in the points table and also, Chennai have become the first team to qualify for the playoffs.

      Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Sanju Samson
      SAFE! A length ball outside off, Samson pushes it down to mid off and calls his partner for a quick run. Turner responds and Williamson in the meanwhile scores a direct hit at the striker's end. They appeal but the Aussie is found to be well inside the crease. 9 needed off 12 balls.
      Appeal for a run out, referred upstairs...

      Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Ashton Turner
      STOP THE PRESS! Turner is off the mark. Smiles all around. His teammates in the dugout are clapping. Haha! These little moments make cricket really entertaining. Full in length on middle, Turner flicks it behind square leg for a run.
      FYI... Turner has got five ducks in a row in T20s and will be under pressure to open his account.
      Ashton Turner is the new batsman.

        Khaleel Ahmed To Steven Smith OUT!
        OUT! Smith departs and the crowd goes silent! Khaleel digs in a short ball on middle and off, Smith shuffles across the stumps to pull it across the line but it takes the top edge and flies down to fine leg. Kaul moves across to his left from fine leg and just about manages to hang on to the catch. Steven Smith is disappointed with himself as he returns to the dugout. 14 needed off 20 balls.

        FOUR! A length delivery on middle, Smith shuffles across and deflects it fine down the leg side. Kaul makes a sliding stop near the fence and they take two. The umpire then goes upstairs to check and the replays find that Kaul made contact with the rope while getting rid of the ball. 50-run stand comes up!

        Khaleel Ahmed To Sanju Samson
        FOUR! That's a rocket! Short in length around off, Samson stands back and pulls it with terrific timing over mid-wicket. Remarkable shot, says Sunil Gavaskar on air.
        Strategic break. 24 needed off 24 balls. A simple equation for Rajasthan but they should try to get the remaining runs in quick time so that their NRR improves a bit. Having said that, they should not take it too lightly also at this moment as we have seen teams losing matches from this point too. Can Hyderabad spring a surprise from here?
