Jaipur: Rajasthan Royals' players combined to hand Kolkata Knight Riders an embarrassing 22-run loss in the Indian Premier League match here on Sunday.
After posting a target of 158, propelled by Brad Hodge's 44, the bowlers came out to wreck the top-order of Kolkata. Three wickets fell in three balls of between the second and third overs. Jacques Kallis (5), Brendon McCullum (2) and Gautam Gambhir (0) fell in a heap despite their famed reputations.
While youngsters Ankeet Chavan and Amit Singh did the early damage, the other bowlers maintained a tight line by T20 standards to keep the pressure up.
