Warne happy with the Royals performance

Rajasthan Royals skipper Shane Warne was happy with the way his team executed their game plan during the Royals 8 wicket victory over the Deccan Chargers.

The win, the Royals third in a row, saw them leapfrog the Chargers into third place in the IPL group stages after dropping their first two games.

"It's about executing the plans. It was an emphatic win tonight. We are here to stay. We have appointed Yusuf Pathan and Munaf Patel as the senior men in the team. And it has to come from within. I am very proud of the guys," said Warne

"The run-outs an fielding of Jhunjhunwala and others were brilliant. We have lost only game in two IPLs at home and we want the opposition to feel uncomfortable when they come here. It's our fortress," he added.

Adam Gilchrist was understandably disappointed with hes side defeat blaming a lack or runs for the defeat. "We were pumped today! We were quiet soft today and allowed them to dominate and to their credit they dominated," said Gilchrist.

"They played really really well. We have to move on. The batting didn't set up enough runs for the bowlers today. We have been going on well till tonight," he added.
