Rajasthan Royals!

This team is one that i support in Indian Premier League (Delhi Daredevils are also there for that matter, but come second...) has maintained it's Home Wins, In a Nail Biting Match.
Mumbai have lost their third nail-biter in a row. They were well and truly on top of this one but they lost their nerve in the final overs. Mumbai needed two of one ball against Punjab but Yuvraj thwarted them with a Jonty Rhodes-esque run-out. Mumbai were defending two off the final ball today and two fumbles allowed Rajasthan to maintain their unbeaten run at home.

The Pakistani Left-Arm Fast Bowler Sohail Tanvir had the lustrous figures of 14 Runs, bowling his full 4 Over quota and also taking 4 Wickets, He is now leading Wicket Takers Table, Has the Purple Cap.

Stay Tuned to the suspense of IPL as it unfolds...

Tendulkar: "I really don't know the recipe for this. The games which we almost won, we've given them away. It's getting tougher and tougher. We didn't use common sense. Common sense would have helped us. The match was 80-90% on our side. With all the experience on our side we should have bowled better lines. I would like to give credit to the two left-handers."

Warne: "I think the atmosphere here from the crowd, they really get behind us and the players appreciate that. I'm really proud of those two young guys - Jadeja and Patel - and they way they handled the pressure. I was wondering whether they left it too late but they summed up the situation really well. Mumbai got a par score and they fought all the way. I'm full of praise for our side. They way Jadeja and Patel played was sensational."

The Man of the Match is Sohail Tanvir for his spell of 4 for 14 off four overs. He's got the purple cap for he's the tournament's highest wicket-taker and he's also got the best economy rate.
