Bangalore: The low-scoring pattern that has come to symbolize the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) continued into Saturday's outing between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Despite some hiccups here and there, after being given a flying 53-run start by the openers, Bangalore coasted home to a comfortable seven wickets win, thanks to the exploits of Chris Gayle and Saurabh Tiwary. There was a minor collapse when Tillakaratne Dilshan, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers fell in quick succession.
Earlier, the visitors were bundled out for a paltry 117 runs despite efforts by skipper Rahul Dravid (35) and Stuart Binny (33).
Rajasthan lost their last six wickets for just 20 runs after RP Singh and Vinay Kumar accounted for three dismissals each while Ravi Rampaul scalped two. Brief Scores: Rajasthan Royals 117 (Rahul Dravid 35, Stuart Binny 33, R P Singh 3/13, Vinay Kumar 3/18, Ravi Rampaul 2/19) lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore 123/3 (Chris Gayle 49 not out, Saurabh Tiwary 25 not out, Tillakaratne Dilshan 25, Shane Watson 2/11).
