Rajasthan Royals have brushed aside Mumbai Indians with an 87-run victory in their Indian Premier League encounter in Jaipur.

The hosts won the toss and put themselves into bat before going on to make 179-3 during their full 20 overs.

Mumbai then struggled at the crease and were eventually bowled out for 92 runs.

Royals batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Brad Hodge ended with unbeaten knocks of 68 and 27 respectively, while Shane Watson (31) and Dishant Yagnik (34) also made significant contributions.

A solitary run for Sachin Tendulkar and an additional four for captain Ricky Ponting saw Mumbai get off to a bad start out in the middle with only three players going on to reach double figures.

Despite the best efforts of Dinesh Karthik (30) and Ambati Rayudu (27), the Indians were comprehensively beaten.
