Royal Challengers Bangalore have claimed a seven-wicket victory at home to Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.

Having lost the toss and been put into bat, Rajasthan were bowled out for 117 runs with two balls remaining.

The Royal Challengers reached their target for the loss of three wickets and with just over two overs left to bowl.

There was little to cheer about for the Royals during their time at the crease, with Rahul Dravid (35) and Stuart Binny (33) the only players who made any significant inroads with the bat.

RP Singh did most of the damage with the ball, taking three wickets for 13 runs.

Unbeaten knocks of 43 and 24 from Chris Gayle and Saurabh Tiwary respectively pushed Bangalore towards their target, while Tillakaratne Dilshan's 25 also helped them over the line.
