Extra pacer in Tanveer helped us win: Warne

Bangalore, Apr 26 (UNI) Rajasthan Royals captain-cum-coach Shane Warne today said the team made up the strategies as per the situation and for each match considering the Bangalore wicket provides extra bounce, played an extra medium pacer in Pakistani left armer Sohail Tanveer and it clicked.

''We use our minds and plan things and not depend on computers.

This is working well. Now we have got the momentum and three consecutive wins will take us further. The team is jelling well and the combination of fast and spin is turning out to be our strength,'' Warne said.

For Watson the Bangalroe wicket brought back the memories of bouncy Aussie wickets. ''This is more like an Australian wicket.

I liked it. Hope there will be more such wickets in the coming matches,'' he said.

The Queenslander, who was adjudged the Man of the Match, for the second match in succession, for his two wickets and unbeaten 61, said Warne was not at all acting like a coach but was leading the team from front.

''Warne is a great boost to the players. More than my knock, it was Greme (Smith), who scored 49, set things up for us. He laid the perfect platform and when I went we needed only run-a-ball and one or two big overs. Everything fell in place very well,'' he said.
