Rajasthan beat Bangalore by 19 runs in 'Battle Royale'

Rajasthan beat Bangalore by 19 runs in 'Battle Royale'

Seamer Umesh Yadav (0-59) bowled the disastrous last over of the innings, at a cost of 27 runs, as Rajasthan set up host Bangalore for what would have been a record IPL successful run-chase. Skipper Ajinkya Rahane scored 36 off 20 balls. With scores of 4, 6 and 11, and with South African Heinrich Klaasen waiting in the wings for an opportunity, Short will need to show something soon or face losing his spot in the side. Like Yadav he has five wickets from two games but he's far more consistent and has the advantage of bowling at the death, when it's easier to pick up cheap wickets.

Starting for RCB, Brendon McCullum got out in the first over for 4 runs. Luckily these missed chances didn't cost the team a win.

7- In the thriller against RCB, RR's Sanju Samson hit 10 sixes which is also the second highest by any Indian in IPL in a single match. There's always this view that one or more of their much-vaunted Top Four will play a big innings and to be fair to them, that's what happened on Friday with Quinton de Kock's 45 and AB de Villiers' 57 getting them over the line.

The Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, are yet to impress with the ball as Andre Russell bashed nearly all their bowlers in the havoc that he created at the Chepauk in the first home game of Dhoni's men.

The first game will be played between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals.

Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahane (capt), D'Arcy Short, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler (wk), Rahul Tripathi, K Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Ben Laughlin.

Trump Ponders Re-Entering Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement
Even as officials in other countries expressed skepticism Friday, they said they would like to hear what Washington has to offer. Mr Trump's Democratic rival in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, also came out against the agreement during the campaign.

RCB are now sitting in the fifth position on the points table, while RR are placed on the sixth position on the points table.

The RCB fans came for some brutal trolling after the result of the game went wrong as twitter dished out memes making fun of their bowlers. De Villiers completed his half-century in 40 balls with the help of two fours and four sixes.

"He is a talented player, we have seen over the years he has done well in the IPL".

The side is fresh off a 10-run win over Delhi Daredevils in a curtailed encounter, when the run chase was reduced to a six-over dash.

RCB 198/6 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 57 off 30 balls, Mandeep Singh 47 no off 25 balls, S Gopal 2/22 in 4 overs). Yuzvendra Chahal was spitting fire by the time he'd arrived to bowl his final over, and was dealt with, with a lot of calm.
