The Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings match had all the elements of a blockbuster that it promised earlier with the Jaipur-team managing to keep their unbeaten run at home intact.
Ajinkya Rahane impressed with his batting scoring 70 off 56 balls, but the man who shone brighter was 41-year-old Pravin Tambe. The leg-spinner has captured the attention of cricket experts and fans in this series with his impressive bowling.
Against CSK one of the strongest sides and multiple IPL and Champions League T20 winners, Tambe was cool, calm and collected as he managed to end the match with figures of 3 for 10.
Tambe's 3 wickets included the scalp of Suresh Raina who looked like he was going to lead his team to yet another CL T20 final. Raina has also just recently become the highest run getter in CL T20.
The tenacious Tambe has now taken 10 wickets in four matches. Sachin Tendulkar, India's greatest batsman who is set to play for the last time in a limited overs game in this series who is also in his forties will be looking to contribute with the bat in Mumbai Indians semi-final against Trinidad and Tobago.
The other members of India's 'Fab @ 40' brigade are Rajasthan captain Rahul Dravid who is also playing his last competitive T20 competition in the CL T20, tennis ace Leander Paes who just won the US Open men's doubles title and Chess Grand Master Viswanathan Anand who continues to dominate the black and white board game.
Sunday's final in Delhi may see three men -Dravid, Tambe and Tendulkar well into their 40s get a chance to show their mettle with younger players if Mumbai join Rajasthan in the final.
