Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane scored breezy fifties as hosts Rajasthan Royals overcame Pune Warriors in a high-scoring contest in the Pink City tonight. The homeside chased down the target of 179 with five wickets in hand and a ball to spare.
Before heading into the clash against Rajasthan Royals, Pune Warriors had lost as many as 11 previous IPL games. It is the kind of record any franchise would dread of.
