Speaking of the match, the Rajasthan bowlers did a great job of keeping the RCB batters at bay and not letting them go past the 40-run mark. Bengaluru managed to score 172/8 with RR needing 173. Even though the Royals' batters were stuttered in the middle part of their innings, they eventually made it to the third round of the playoff. Be it Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag or the returning Shimron Hetmeyer, Rajasthan has managed to show out and sweep the game. To advance to the IPL final, the 2008 champions will now take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday.
