Bangalore Royal Challengers stunned title-holders Rajasthan Royals, defeating them by 75 runs in the second match of the Indian
Premier League (IPL) on the opening day here on Saturday.

Chasing a target of 134, Rajasthan Royals were bowled out in 15.1 overs for 58 runs, which was the lowest score in the IPL. Rahul Dravid scored a flamboyant 66 to set-up the win for Royal Challengers.

Anil Kumble's five-wicket haul helped Royal Challengers Bangalore thump defending champions Rajasthan Royals by 75 runs in the second match of the IPL 2 in Cape Town.

Chasing a meagre total of 134 runs set by Royal Challengers, Rajasthan Royals were bundled for just 58 runs in 15.1 runs, the lowest total by any IPL team.

The jumbo bowler, who bowed out of the Test cricket last year, proved he still has that sting to torment the batsmen. After the breakthroughs from Praveen Kumar and mauling by Jesse Ryder, the legendary leg-spinner hurried Rajasthan's fall.

But it was Rahul Dravid who walked off with the 'Man of the Match' trophy for his brilliant knock of 60 runs. He struck a well crafted fifty to take Royal Challengers Bangalore's score to 133 at the loss of 8 wickets.

The former Bangalore captain kept one end intact as wickets kept tumbling from the other end. He took 48 balls to raise his third fifty of the Indian Premier League since its inception, with the help of eight fours and a massive six.
