IPL 6: Rajasthan Royals' skipper Rahul Dravid rues lack of spinner on helpful Hyderabad wicket

Sunrisers' skipper Cameron White could not impress on the day getting out for a golden duck but ably led his side to a fine win. With the win, they also inch a step closer to playoff qualification - they just need to beat Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.

While Rajasthan Royals are already through to the playoff stage but better performance in the last two games might have put them on top of the points-table. Even on Friday, against Sunrisers Hyderabad, they would have fancied their chances but fell short by 23 runs in the end. Rajasthan skipper Rahul Dravid, who confessed pre-match on having a 'tough couple of days', lamented the fact that the team missed a spinner on the day. Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, both spinners, are in police custody in Delhi for alleged involvement in spot fixing.
