RR win for second time (consequetively) in IPL-5 by smashing KKR today at their homeground, Jaipur, by 23 runs.
KKR won toss and selected to field and first over seemed well with Rahane,who made 98 against KXIP, back to pavilion.Menaria scored 40, Hodge 44 and Dravid managed 26 to get a respectable score.
It was a nightmare for KKR as they couldnot manage to recover after 3 wickets lost in 3 balls at starting of run chase.Kallis caught at mid-off and Gambhir was caught behind in rising ball.
In Chavan’s over McCullun was sent back.Tiwary,highest scorer, made 59, but was dimissed at last ball of innings.Y.Pathan was their last hope but set back by Trivedi. As wickets fell regularly the momentum needed in run chase was missing.
Exellent game by Cooper who picked up 3 wickets,last match against KXIP he took 4,and presently has the PURPLE cap.Chavan and Trivedi were impressive.
