Abu Dhabi: A clinical Rajasthan Royals shot out Royal Challengers Bangalore for a paltry 70, the third lowest total in the Indian Premier League history, and then romped to a six-wicket victory here today.




Rajasthan bowlers, led by spinner Pravin Tambe (4/20), justified their skipper's decision to bowl first as only three Bangalore batsmen could touch a double-digit mark.

Ironically in 2009, Rajasthan were at the receiving end of Bangalore's hostility when they were bundled out for 58 - the lowest IPL score by any team till now.

Chasing 71, Rajasthan cantered to their target in 13 overs with skipper Shane Watson top-scoring with 24 runs.

The Rajasthan side though hit a few roadblocks when Ajinkya Rahane was caught behind off Mitchell Starc for 23, Sanju Samson was run out for 2 and Mitchell Starc struck his second blow to send Karun Nair back for 8.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also picked up a consolation wicket when Watson was caught at cover while trying to finish the game.

It was finally left-hander Abhishek Nayar who hit the winning runs to give Rajasthan their second win in the tournament after four games.

Earlier a star-studded Bangalore batting line-up collapsed like a pack of cards as they were shot out for their lowest total in the Twenty20 league.

The RCB innings was off to a disastrous start after their openers returned to the dug out in the very first over and the agony ended for them in the 15th over.
