Jaipur: He is mighty pleased with his five-for performance but Australian speedster James Faulkner says Rajasthan Royals should not have allowed their rivals to post 144 after having them on the mat.

"We did well and a victory always results feeling high. It was Shane Watson's exceptional innings which saw us home. It was a great effort. We did not have any particular plan but it was home ground and the ball was swinging around and we did everything well.

"The death bowling was also good but we should not have allowed them to reach 144 after having them reeling at 29 for 6. Sammy played a good knock and almost took it away from us," the left-arm paceman said.
