Rajasthan Royals go into the Semi Finals of CLT20 2013 winning all their four matches in Group A. Otago Volts losing tonight’s game against the Royals have to settle with 10 points in their four matches and thus leaving Mumbai Indians a decent chance to make it to the Semis.
We know by now that Rajasthan Royals are not the most talented of T20 sides. But, it is equally true that Rahul Dravid’s men have formulated their own path to success, at least when it comes to home games.
Australia’s T20 specialist Brad Hodge played a wonderfully composed knock under extreme pressure at the Feroz Shah Kotla, which was instrumental in Rajasthan Royals staying alive in the tournament, and knocking out debutants Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Rajasthan Royals pulled off a miraculous victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad to make way to the Qualifier 2 Match of IPL 6. An absolute blinder from T20 veteran Brad Hodge stole what looked like a certain victory for the Sunrisers Hyderabad after they had the Rajasthan Royals in the dumps at 57 for 5 in 10 overs chasing 133 on a sluggish pitch at Delhi.
On paper, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) always look the side with better ability when they take on Rajasthan Royals (RR). However, Rahul Dravid’s men have found a way to make the best of their talent especially when they have faced KKR over the last season.
