IPL3. Day.34. Match.49. Rajasthan Royals Vs Royal Challengers

Royal Challengers 132 for 5 in 15.4 overs beat Rajasthan Royals 130 for 6 by five wickets.

In another one sided match, Royal Challengers restricted the Royals for a meagre 130 for 5 in their allotted 20 overs. A late order bravado by Raut 32 not out, and Voges 28 not out, took the Royals to the three figure mark. Otherwise, it was a spineless display by the Royals. Of the Royal Challengers bowlers, Pankaj Singh the Udaipur boy, bowled intelligently for his two wickets for 27. Steyn, Kallis and Vinay Kumar picked up a wicket each.

The Challengers went about their task methodically. Pietersen 62 of 29 and Uthappa 26 of 21, made the job easy. Challengers achieved the target in 15.4 overs. Trivedi with 2 for 32, Kamran Khan with 1 for 30 and Warne with 1 for 28 were among the wickets.

As the IPL3 is nearing completion, the worrying factor is other than Zaheer, Harbhajan, Raina,Dhoni, Vinay Kumar & Praveen Kumar, no other player selected for WC T20-2010, has shown any consistency. Yusuf , Dinesh Kartik and Nehra have performed in patches. Yuvraj, Piyush, Ghambir, Sehwag & Rohit Sharma have done nothing of note.

Keep your fingers crossed and let us hope, they peak at the right time, and get back the T20. World Cup to India.
