Six in a row for the Challengers!
The Royal Challengers are on a roll with a six match winning streak. Yesterday they destroyed a sloppy Rajasthan Royals outfit [SCORECARD] as Shane Warne said his final good byes to his adopted home in Jaipur.
The Royals got off to a brilliant start with Dravid and Watson going strong. They put on 73 runs in just 57 balls before Man of the match, Aravind struck twice in the same over to remove both openers. From then on it was a struggle to get runs as the Challengers strung in some tight overs together supported with some sharp fielding. In the last 7 overs of the Rajasthan innings, they hit just one boundary. The Royals finally managed a score of 146 for the loss of 6 wickets.
RCB got off to yet another dream start with both Chris Gayle and Dilshan firing. Within a space of a few overs, the match was reduced to a no contest as the required run rate dropped to below 6. Dilshan playing his last match for RCB this season came up with a brilliant 38 while Chris Gayle got to yet another half century. I bet Shah Rukh Khan is pulling his hair out seeing the Calypso bat. The skipper for the day - Kohli stayed with Gayle seeing the team home. With this win, RCB climb to the second spot and look good for a place in the playoffs.
