I have played my natural game : Yusuf Pathan

Kolkata, May 21 (UNI) Dashing bat Yusuf Pathan, who singlehandedly vanquished the Kolkata Knight Riders tonight scoring 48 runs off 18 balls, said he had played his 'natural game' to maintain the winning spree for the Rajasthan Royals.

Yusuf, who won the Man of the Match award for his rapidfire knock, said when he came to bat, the situation was very critical for the Royals, but he remain cool-minded and played his natural game to pave the way for his team's victory.

Earlier also, Yusuf smashed the fastest 50 in the IPL tourney, scoring the half ton in just 21 balls against the Deccan Chargers.

Showering praise on all the players of the Royals, particularly Yusuf, RR skipper Shane Warne said he was privileged to have got such a fabulous team.

'' We will still try to play better and win our remaining matches. All of our players are in fine nick,'' he commented.

Riders skipper Sourav Ganguly, however, said they had fallen short of 20 runs in tonight's match, but hoped his team would spare no pains to win the remaining two matches against Delhi Daredevis and Kings Eleven Punjab.
