Rajasthan receives royal thrashing

Even before the match started, RCB received a jolt in terms of Daniel Vettori's injury because of which he couldn't take part in the game. Young Virat Kohli, whom Mr. Ray Jennings considers as a future skipper of India was given the mantle. With this, he became the youngest IPL captain at the age of 22!
Rajasthan started well, but Aravind dismissed their opening pair of Watson & Dravid in space of 3 balls to send them on a back foot. RR never looked to recover from that blow and kept losing wickets at regular interval. At last they could only set a target of 147 to be chased in 20 overs.
Considering the form Chris Gayle is in, it was never enough. But it was Dilshan who took the attack on the opposition at the start.With a brief cameo of 38 runs from 24 balls, when he departed he made sure that the required run-rate is well six. On exit of Dilshan came the captain cool Virat Kohli.
Slowly & Steadily, without taking any undue risk, Gayle & Kohli finished it for RCB with Gayle top scoring with 70*. The chase ended on a perfect note with Virat Smashing Pankaj Singh for a six!
The match was also the last one for legendary Shane Warne, but Gayle & Aravind made sure, it does not end on a good note for him at his adopted city of Jaipur.
