Royal Challengers Bangalore eased to a 7-wicket win with 13 balls to spare against the Rajasthan Royals at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. It was a one-sided affair after the Rajasthan Royals crumbled to 117 all out after being put into bat first by Virat Kohli.
Traditionally, India are poor starters, especially while playing away from home. The Boxing Day Test of 2007 was a prime example of this fact. Batting first, Australia put up a competitive 343 on board courtesy yet another ton from Matthew Hayden and a half-century from Phil Jaques.
