CLT20: Rajasthan Royals vs. Lions Scorecard, Standings, Recap and More

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterOctober 29, 2016

Rajasthan Royals made it two wins from two after holding off the Lions and sealing a 30-run win in Group A of the Champions League T20.

Put in to bat first by their South African opponents, they piled on 183 for six wickets from their 20 overs in Jaipur and then restricted the Lions to 153 for nine.

It was a measured innings from the IPL team—they started steadily via Rahul Dravid's 31 runs from 30, then upped the tempo as the innings went on through Shane Watson (33 from 24), Stuart Binny (38 from 20), and Brad Hodge (46 from 23).

The late onslaught turned a good total into an imposing one, and the Lions never really got to terms with it.

Alviro Peterson top scored with 40 from 28 balls, but there simply wasn't enough support around him to chase the target down.

Opening bowlers Vikramjeet Malik and James Faulkner both picked up a couple of wickets in economical figures, and Pravin Tambe did the rest, finishing with 4-15 to rip the heart out of the middle order.

Here is what the result does to the standings in Group A:
