Steven Smith and James Faulkner stunned Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as Rajasthan Royals (RR) won by five wickets in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. The duo struck a quick-fire 85-run partnership to chase down a massive 191-run target at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on May 11. Smith and Faulkner hammered 65 runs in the last 17 deliveries of the innings. Smith finished on an unbeaten 48 off 21 deliveries with four fours and four sixes. Faulkner struck the winning runs with a six to end his innings on 41 off 17 deliveries. He hit three fours and three sixes.

When Faulkner joined Smith in the middle, Rajasthan were at 106 for five. But the duo hit boundaries at will to guide Rajasthan to their sixth win in nine matches. They now consolidate their third position in the IPL 7 Points Table. Rajasthan have 12 points. Bangalore now have six losses in nine matches and are in sixth place in the standings. They only have six points and a spot in the play-offs looks ever more unlikely.

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.
