Michael Hussey is the Man of the Match: 'It was good batting conditions. Probably the best batting pitch we have had here this season. It was a good chase from us and I'm glad we got over the line. It was fantastic to bat with Raina today.'
MS Dhoni: 'If the opposition scores 185, 90% of the times it goes to the last over. It got a bit uncomfortable in the last over with 11 needed but Dwayne Bravo batted well. We got a good start with Hussey and Raina playing well. It's important to win games at home. Today's wicket was really good. The groundsmen are doing their best and we're trying our best to adapt to the pitches.'
Rahul Dravid: 'Pleased with our batting effort. Watto played really well. Superb execution of batting in tough humid conditions. I thought we got a pretty good score. We didn't execute well with the ball but credit to them. Hussey and Raina's partnership kept them going. Chennai have a long batting line up and the guys who come after a wicket can also hit that crucial six. That's what Bravo did today.'
Shane Watson scored the first century of IPL 2013 as Rajasthan Royals finished their innings at 185 for 4 against Chennai Super Kings.
