RR v BRC, IPL Match 39, Jaipur: Rajasthan Royals beat Bangalore Royal Challengers by 65 runs

Royal Challengers Bangalore continued their pathetic show in the IPL as they plunged to a humiliating 65 run defeat against Rajasthan Royals at Swai Mansingh stadium.
Chasing a challenging 198 to win, the visitors could manage just 132, largely built around skipper Rahul Dravid's brilliant unbeaten 75-run knock. Dravid waged a losing battle as he smashed Yousuf Pathan for three sixes in the 17th over but it was too late by then as Bangalore batsmen let their team down once again. The former Indian captain hit six fours and as many sixes in his innings.
The run chase of the Bangalore team began on a disastrous note as opener Jagdeesh Arunkumar was dismissed for a nought on the third ball of the first over by Sohail Tanvir. Pakistani Misbah-ul-Haq then got a first ball duck on the second ball of the next over reducing the visitors to two for two.
It was important to get a partnership from here but Tanvir struck again to pile up the agony of the Bangalore team when he castled Virat Kohli (3).
Munaf Patel (2/21) picked up his second wicket on the last bowl of his spell when he sent back White (10) and Siddharth Trivedi plotted the fall of Jacques Kallis (20). Skipper Shane Warne (3/23) joined the party when he took wickets of consecutive balls in his second over and then dismissed Zaheer Khan (1) off a stunning caught and bowled in the third.
