Shreyas Gopal help Rajasthan defeat Kohli & boys

Rajasthan leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal dismissed Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers among others with his googlies before Jos Buttler struck 59 as Rajasthan Royals finally won their first game of IPL 2019 with a seven-wicket defeat of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Tuesday.

Gopal claimed three wickets, including that of Virat Kohli (23) and AB de Villiers (13), conceding just 12 runs in his four-quota over to unsettle RCB. It was opener Parthiv who resisted the Royals attack with aplomb, hitting a belligerent 67 off 41 balls with nine boundaries and six to help his side put 158 for four after being sent in to bat. Marcus Stoinis (31 not out) too played a key part in shoring up team's total, add 32 quick runs in partnership with Moeen Ali (18).
