A charged-up Bangalore Stag Challengers produced the sort of performance for which concern soul Vijay Mallya splashed the big bucks to sheaf out Rajasthan Royals to the second-lowest numerate in Twenty20 chronicle. There may be abundance of refreshed faces but it was the old keeping, Rahul Dravid and Indigotin Kumble, who were the stars in Bangalore's large conclusion. Dravid was the most assured batsman on showing, making a svelte half-century, spell Kumble took the most scheme five-wicket cart in Twenty20s to neaten up Rajasthan.
Rajasthan curst their live squad wickets for 11 runs to foil to an hard conclusion. Such an contemptible end was in stark contrast to their move: Dimitri Mascarenhas scalping two big wickets in the really honours over to shake Bangalore, before Shane Warne's bag of tricks kept them to what seemed a procurable 133.
The action from Bangalore's bowlers was undiagnosable from the limp viewing against a raiding Brendon McCullum in their season-opener terminal period. Rajasthan had a collection of crucify hitters but they were stifled to much an extent that the intact innings had only two sixes and a unaccessible four.
