No Ball Cost the Match For RR
In the first Innings RR set the a matching winning target of 215. With the help of Jos Buttler ‘s 95 of 59 and Captain Samson’s 66 of 38 RR managed to score 214.

Abdul Samad hit to the long on and gave his wicket and RR started celebrating their win when TV empire decleared the delivery a no ball. Sandeep Sharma’s re ball was smashed for 6 by Samad and RR lost the game .
Captain Samson was disappointed on over stepping
“This is what IPL gives you, matches like these makes the IPL special. You can never, never, never feel like you have won the game. I knew any opponent can win it and they were batting well too, but I was confident with Sandeep . He has won us a game from a similar situation . He did it again today but that no-ball ruined our result. We played really well with the bat to put up that kind of a score on this wicket, but I think they batted really sensibly, credit has to go to them for the way they batted. Nothing much, it’s a no ball, just have to bowl it again as simple as that, you don’t think about it too much. Sandeep knows what to do but I think that’s the nature of this game, you can’t step the line at that point of time”
