Rajasthan Royals will aim to book a berth in the semi-finals of the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) 2013 tournament with a win over the Perth Scorchers in their Group A match on Sunday.
The hosts have been impressive here right through the IPL and have notched up two successive victories against the formidable Mumbai Indians and the Highveld Lions to top the group with eight points.
A depleted Perth Scorchers are, however, languishing at the bottom with two points which they bagged by virtue of their washed out match in Ahmadabad.
The hosts are on a roll and have won 10 consecutive matches here, eight in the IPL-6 and two in the ongoing event.
Thanks to coach Paddy Upton and skipper Rahul Dravid, they have been able to put the spot-fixing scandal behind them and have emerged as a strongly-knit and determined side, PTI reports.
