Rajasthan Royals v Royal Challengers Bangalore at Cape Town

RR v RCB, Match 2: Pietersen's Royal Challengers win by 75 runs

Old pros Rahul Dravid (66) and Anil Kumble (5/5) put up sparkling performances as Bangalore Royal Challengers inflicted a humiliating 75-run defeat on defending Champions Rajasthan Royals at Cape Town.
Set to chase a modest 134, Rajasthan Royals folded up for just 58 runs- the lowest in the IPL so far- inside 16 overs as Royal Challengers bowled a tight line throughout the innings and did not let the opposition to take control at any point of the match.
While Royal Challengers' last season's captain Dravid played some delectable strokes to a magnificent 66 off 48 balls, his statemate Kumble came good with the bowl as he claimed the tournament's first five-wicket haul to make things worse for Royals.
RR v RCB, Match 2: Royal Challengers Bangalore 133-8 (20.0 ovs) beat Rajasthan Royals 58 (15.1 ovs) by 75 runs
