Rajasthan will take on Chennai and Mumbai will take on Trinidad and tobago in the Semi-finals.Join us for the first semifinal on Friday. Until then its Good bye from all of us.
Ramdin: Winning the toss was important. Getting Hussey was important and Rampaul got the inform batsmen. It was a good pitch and we got in the extra spinner in. All the big games are big and now it gets even bigger. It was an almost a perfect game but we still have to improve. The fielding was very good thoes two catches by Simmons was very good and important. Mumbai are a very good team and we are up for it.
Lendl Simmons is the Man of the Match
MS Dhoni: I think our batting was not all that great. The wicket slowed down a bit and batting became difficult as the innings progressed. 118 was not enough for our bowlers but I felt that they could have bowled a lot better. A score around 135-140 was a par score on this track. We were short by around 15-20 runs. We were looking to finish on a good note, that did not happen. The wicket at Rajasthan will aid the seamers, and will be a much better batting track. We hope to do well out there.
