Commentary (Rajasthan Royals innings)

Brad Hodge receives the Man of the Match award for his match winning knock. That's all for this game. Do join us in a short while for the second double-header today between Pune and Bangalore. Cheers!

In pursuit of 197, Jaipur initiated their innings superbly as the openers staged a 62-run stand. Dravid, in particular, played a lovely 24-ball 44 cameo and provided the quick start. Hyderabad tried to hang around with some wickets but the experience of Brad Hodge steered Jaipur to a thrilling win. The Aussie, considered to be the best T20 batsman, hammered 48 off just 21 balls, while Dinesh Yagnik (9 off 3) also made a name for himself by hitting the winning runs.

Smiles in the Jaipur camp and the hosts have pulled out a superb chase to overhaul a big target. Courtesy this win they jump to the top of the table with 8 points and Hyderabad are still finding it difficult to get off the mark this season. They will be gutted with this defeat as they batted superbly to amass a big score on the board but an ordinary bowling cost them the game.
