Rajasthan Royals (RR) have reached a score of 63 for three after nine overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Shane Watson was bowled by Yuvraj Singh for one run. Stuart Binny also perished in the ninth over to Yuvraj. Karun Nair is batting on 35. Ajinkya Rahane has been dismissed for 24 runs off 22 deliveries. Yuzvendra Chahal was the bowler, who took his wicket. Rajasthan are chasing a massive 191-run target. This is Match 35 of IPL 7. Bangalore captain Kohli won the toss and elected to bat.
Ashok Dinda was brought to bowl the fourth over. It was a good over, but the last delivery took the inside-edge off Nair’s bat and went for a four through fine-leg. Kohli decided to bring Varun Aaron on in the fifth over. He bowled a short and wide delivery and Rahane cut the ball over point for another four. Dinda then bowled a length delivery outside off-stump and Nair drove the ball over cover for a four. The ball almost flew for a six, but bounced just in front of the boundary.
Yuvraj then bowled the first over after the powerplays. Nair reached forward and slog-swept a length delivery over mid-wicket for a four. Yuzvendra Chahal then struck on his first ball in the seventh eighth over. The ball skidded straight through and Rahane bottom-edged it to Parthiv Patel behind the wickets. Nair then played a late-cut to a wide delivery from Chahal and got a four through third-man.
Nair then miscued one high in the air, but the ball fell safely in-between deep cover and point. Yuvraj continued and bowled Watson for one run. He bowled a straight good length delivery and Watson missed with his cut shot. Watson’s wicket brought out wild celebrations from the Bangalore players.
Earlier, Bangalore posted a massive total of 190 for five in their 20 overs. Yuvraj Singh scored a magnificent innings of 83 from only 38 deliveries with seven fours and seven sixes. AB de Villiers struck a 32-ball 58 with one four and five sixes. The duo shared a 132-run stand for the fourth wicket at a run-rate of 12.18. Almost all of Rajasthan’s bowlers took a pounding. Kane Richardson did manage to take two wickets.
