After plotting Daredevils' fall, Warne says Royals are back

Centurion, April 29: Shane Warne's reputation of a master tactician got enhanced as his clever shuffling of batsmen and bowlers handed Rajasthan Royals a motivating win against Delhi Daredevils.

Warne reshuffled the batting that did not fire in previous run-chases and faltered while chasing modest 140-run scores.

Warne pushed Yusuf Pathan and Dmitri Mascarenhas down the order so that they can go for an all-out attack in the last five overs.
