Senior all-rounder Rajat Bhatia on Thursday took a mild dig at Kolkata Knight Riders by stating that every member of Rajasthan Royals was aware about the equation of the the Super Over but he was unsure whether KKR knew that two runs off last ball would have clinched the issue.

"This Rajasthan Royals team believes in playing smart cricket rather than aggressive cricket. We knew that two runs from the last delivery was good enough to win the match. Steve Smith and Shane Watson were out there in the middle and you don't need to tell them what needs to be done. They knew it beforehand. It was about showing common sense which is emphasised at every team meeting.

"Every guy in our team knew about the equation. I don't know whether KKR players were about it or not," Bhatia said prior to the Royals' net session.
