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.
"We bowled well to restrict them (Hyderabad) to 136 but were probably a spinner light on the day. And while batting, Amit Mishra was fantastic for them but we got bogged down in the middle overs."
