Royals no match for the slumping Warriors
The Rajasthan Royals cruised to a comprehensive seven wicket victory over the Pune Warriors in a one sided encounter at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune.
The Royals cruised past the Warriors total of 125-6 with 22 ball to spare thanks to Shane Watson who smashed 90 runs off just 51 deliveries which included tem boundaries and four sixes.
Ashok Menaria (18) and Rahual Dravid (14) offered support but it proved to be a one man show as Watson smashed the Warriors around the boundary to seal victory at a canter.
It proved to be another bad day for the Warriors who slumped to their sixth straight defeat to all but end their faint hopes of reaching the IPL play offs.
Anustup Majumdar (30) led the Warriors attack but with wickets falling at regular intervals the home side were restricted to a total of just 125-6.
