Shane Watson butchered Chennai Super Kings bowlers in a sensational batting display as Rajasthan Royals scored a comprehensive five wicket victory in their IPL match here yesterday.


Chasing 142 for a win, Rajasthan lost three wickets -- Ajinkya Rahane 9, James Faulkner 1 and Sanju Samson for 0--inside five overs before Watson played a blistering knock of 70 from just 34 balls with the help of six fours and as many sixes to end the match in dramatic fashion with 17 balls to spare.


Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders 116 for 5 beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 115 for 9 by five wickets in yesterday’s IPL match in Ranchi.
