Right then, that's all we have for today. It was a thrilling first game which went into the Super Over, while the second match was a one-sided affair. Do join us tomorrow for another double-header and until then, take care and stay happy. Cheers!!!
Kevon Cooper bags the Man of the Match for his outstanding bowling. Says that it was good to come out here and bowl well. Adds that it is a good feeling to be sharing the same dressing room with Rahul Dravid and Shane Watson.
It turned out to be a stroll in the park for Rajasthan Royals. Their bowlers set up the match well by restricting Perth Scorchers to a below par total and then the young pair of Rahane and Samson scaled down the runs with utmost ease. Courtesy this win, Rajasthan storm into the semis and maintain their unbeaten run in Jaipur. It's all over for Perth Scorchers as far as qualifying for the final four is concerned but they still have one match to play against Mumbai Indians and they would look to go back home on a high.
