RR 179/7 (19.2 ov, Shimron Hetmyer 56*, Trent Boult 0*, Noor Ahmad 1/29)


Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson: “When you play some quality opponents on a quality wicket in a quality stadium like this, you expect a great match. I’m very happy to be on the winning side. I think it was very important to rotate the bowlers. They were going hard at our spinners. After the timeout, they were playing some quality cricket shots and we needed to respect that but I’m very proud of our team for restricting them to a 170-odd score. With the start we had while batting, it was very important to know how good a wicket this was. With the quality of bowling they had in the Powerplay, we had to respect them. But we knew we could play some shots later on. We had a good matchup with Zampa on David Miller and almost got him but still it turned out well for us. [On Hetmyer] I don’t think he likes easy situations. We don’t mind putting him in these situations.”
