Rahul: Man of the Match

T20 was not meant for them.They always were compared to be the test/ODI players. In the end, the oldies proved that T20 is not just about power and speed.Today, when Sachin and Rahul played superb knocks for their respective teams ( in 2 different games ), one must say that "form is temporary, but class is permanent"! Even Anil Kumble proved his critics wrong; wrapping Rajasthan Royal's innings with brilliant 5/5  spell.
It was the first match for BRC and that too against the defending champions Rajasthan Royals.BRC continued their poor show with the bat, when Mascarenhas reduced them to 63/5.The Wall was standing tall on one end, the last hope for BRC and he didn't let them down.With a brilliant 66 (from 48 balls), he proved that he is still Mr.Dependable.Here is what Rahul said after the match: 
"I'm happy with the way I'm hitting it and it was good to get the team out of the hole. This was always going to be a good score in the conditions, you've got to play proper cricket, as it's not going to be easy hitting every ball. It all worked out well, and it was a good start to the tournament. The bowlers responded well and it was just brilliant."
