Taylor, Manish, Akhil sizzle as RC defeats Victoria

A solid start by Manish Pandey, a blaze from Ross Taylor in the middle and a strong finish by Balachandra Akhil helped Team Royal Challengers chase past Victoria Bushrangers total of 179 in the second and last practice match prior to the Airtel Champions League T20 proper. With today's win, RC exhibited their strong desire to win this year's CLT20 and lived upto their reputation as one of the favourites in the tournament. With this win, RC showed their prowess both in chasing and defending a total in the tournament. RC won their first practice match against the Central Stags while defending their total.

Batting first Victoria finished strongly piling up 179/6 in their 20 overs. For RC, Dale Steyn and Dillon Du Preez took two wickets each while Praveen Kumar picked up one. Chasing the hefty total, RC romped home with 7 balls to spare through a strong finish by Akhil who hammered 27 off only 15 balls. But the platform was built was Manish Pandey who stroked a fluent 50 off 39 deliveries. Then it was time for "Boom Boom" Taylor to show his caliber, clubbing the Victorian bowlers for 66 off only 29 balls. With two strong finishes in the practice matches, Team RC is well tuned to face the CLT20 tournament head-on.
