Comprehensive away win for Bangalore! Rajasthan needed an impossible 69 runs the final three overs and ended up falling short by 46 runs. Their impressive home record was dented today. Kudos to RCB, who didn't really start well in the match. Gayle was unwell and therefore did not open the batting. He did come lower down the order, but scored only 4 runs. RCB was 62-2 in the first ten overs with Rajasthan firmly on top, but once AB de Villiers joined Dilshan, things started to change. The duo added 122 runs in 8.2. The final five overs yielded a massive 82 runs and Dilshan and AB finished unbeaten on 76 and 59, respectively. KP Appanna starred with the ball picking up four wickets. Even though Rajasthan lost the game, there were two bright spots: Dravid made a swift 58 and Brad Hogg picked up two wickets.
