42-yr-old leggie Tambe star in Rajasthan Royals’ six-wicket IPL win over RCB

Johannesburg, Apr 27: The Rajasthan Royals has ended with an empathic six-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

Due to a convincing bowling spell by 42-year-old legspinner Pravin Tambe (4-20), RCB lost early wickets and ended up scratching and edging their way to their target in 13 overs, which destroyed their line-up for 70 runs.

According to Sport24, with the wicket offering movement and extra bounce, the pacemen had a field day with Shane Watson being rewarded when Sachin Rana chopped on in similar fashion and the Challengers were staggering at 17 for five.

Ajinkya Rahane got the Royals innings off to a good start with four fours before edging behind off Mitchell Starc, while Tambe’s bowling spell earned him the Man of the Match award, the report added. (ANI)
