Rajasthan Royals win by 34 runs. Well a weak batting show from KKR, chasing 169 was never going to be too difficult especially when they were plenty of wickets in hand! Looks like the poor strategy or the lack of it was the cause of this defeat for KKR. Nothing really special from the Royals, they just stuck to the basics right.
