Rajasthan beat Bangalore by 19 runs

Rajasthan beat Bangalore by 19 runs

Finch (0) was declared lbw off Umesh Yadav's bowling, the very next ball after Yadav got Agarwal's wicket.

Captain Ajinkya Rahane can take a cue from Ravichandran Ashwin n how well to rotate his bowlers, and hope for them to make life hard for RCB's top-order. But, Shreyas Gopal managed to take the big wicket of a rampaging Kohli in the 11th over to turn the match decisively in his team's favour.

Local boy K Gowtham struck in the first over of the chase to dismiss McCullum for 4 but Kohli combined with de Kock to shave 64 runs off the target in the first six overs. Unadkat stationed at Long leg takes low catch. He got the wicket of risky Brendon McCullum at Mujib ur Rahim on the second ball of the second over. Luckily these missed chances didn't cost the team a win. Samson obliterated the Bengaluru bowlers to stroke 10 maximums and two boundaries to anchor Royals to the behemoth total.

Samson shared crucial partnerships with Ben Stokes (27 off 21), Jos Buttler (23 off 14) and Rahul Tripaathi (14 not out off five), as Rajasthan capitalised on a strong start provided by captain Ajinkya Rahane (36 off 20).

The 11th match of Indian Premier Leauge (IPL) has been started and the match is going to play between Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore and Ajinkya Rahane's Rajasthan Royals. The legspinner got one to drift away from D'Arcy Short and found the toe end in his second over, the seventh of the match. Scoring 16 runs off the first over, he imposed his will onto the bowlers.




RCB are now sitting in the fifth position on the points table, while RR are placed on the sixth position on the points table.

RCB, on the otherhand, slumped to their second defeat in three games despite skipper Virat Kohli (57 off 30 balls)'s first half-century of this edition. From there on, it was RR's game as seldom does RCB pull of stunning wins without their two mainstays. Two overs later, de Villiers holed out off a similar ball. Yuzvendra Chahal was spitting fire by the time he'd arrived to bowl his final over, and was dealt with, with a lot of calm.

The game is scheduled to be played at 4:00 PM at the Royal Challengers' home ground, M Chinnaswamy Stadium today.

Virat Kohli hit 57 and AB de Villiers 20 but both were out to spinner Shreyas Gopal, who finished with figures of 2-22 in four overs. He was out in the 18th over but by then he has taken the match to the threshold of victory with RCB needing just 10 runs from 1.5 overs.
