Jaipur: Pune Warriors fought hard to defend their total of 178 against Rajasthan Royals but came out second best once again. For skipper Aaron Finch, it was like deja vu and he said that while he was pleased with the performance, the result was unfortunately familiar.
Stuart Binny hit the winning runs for Rajasthan off the second-last delivery of the match leaving Finch visibly disappointed. "We played well. A lot of positives to take from this match. (But) very disappointing to miss out in the end but that has been our story a couple of times during this tournament," he said after the match.
Finch said that he felt Rajasthan's middle-order batted well. "Should have taken a few wickets in the middle and stemmed the flow of runs. A couple of overs here and there didn't work out for us."
