Although Yadav had started things on an attacking note, it was Lewis who took up the charge after powerplay, to up the ante. Krunal said they have plans for all Rajasthan players. We have to focus on taking the dew out of the equation. I know this wicket quite well. The English cricketer scored his fifth consecutive fifty in the tournament to seal the game for his side in the must win encounter against the defending champions. We have to come out and play our best cricket, it's do or die for both of us. "That was missing in the first half, but it's coming together well".
