Rajasthan Royals beats Royal Challengers Bangalore by six wickets

Rajasthan Royals (RR) has beaten Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets in their last match played on Saturday. Earlier they bundled out their opponent for a paltry 70, which is the third lowest total in the history of the Indian Premier League.
RCB’s star-studded batting line-up collapsed very easily. Only three RCB bowlers could reach double-digit figure. It was their lowest total in the Twenty20 league.
However, Rajasthan Royals reached the target in 13 overs. Skipper Shane Watson became the top scorer scoring 24 runs. Left-handed batsman Abhishek Nayar hit the winning runs and led his team to get their second victory in the tournament after four games.
For RCB, Mitchell Starc got two wickets while Yuzvendra Chahal got a consolation wicket respectively.

The interesting fact is that RR were bowled out for 58, the lowest IPL score by any team till now, by RCB in 2009. By winning this match, they could take revenge of their defeat.
