Shimron Hetmyer contributed 35 to Rajasthan Royals’ 59 while the other ten batters managed a shambolic 24 between them as the hosts succumbed to an emphatic bowling performance by Royal Challengers Bangalore, enduring a massive 112-run defeat that is bound to hurt their net run rate.
Earlier, 51 runs were scored in the last five overs at just over ten an over, as Glenn Maxwell went ballistic to usher Royal Challengers Bangalore to 171-5 in 20 overs. He didn’t last particularly long after his fifty, falling to a tame reverse-sweep. A couple of wickets by Adam Zampa and Sandeep Sharma put the breaks on the RCB innings, but a handy cameo by Anuj Rawat ensured that the visitors set Rajasthan Royals a competitive target at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
