The Otago Volts' unbeaten run at the Champions League T20 came to an end after masterful innings from Brad Hodge helped the Rajasthan Royals sneak a four-wicket win.

Having laboured to 139 for seven wickets from their 20 overs, it looked like Otago would struggle to defend their total.

Despite a relatively low score in Jaipur, it represented a comeback from a dire start which left them at 21 for four.

And they restricted Rajasthan skilfully when the time came to bowl, squeezing the required run rate up to almost 10 an over.

But Hodge turned the match on its head with an unbeaten 52 from just 23 balls.

The Royals go through to the semi-finals as the top side in Group A, with a perfect record.

Otago are still in pole position to join them—but Mumbai Indians can still overhaul them if they pull off a resounding victory over the winless Perth Scorchers in the final game of the group.
