Royals switch off Deccan Charge!!!

The Rajasthan Royals, after suffering a surprise defeat at the hands of the Mumbai Indians came back to form with a thumping win over the Deccan Chargers. The Deccan Chargers batting first, got off to a formidable start thanks to Gilly and Gibbs. But once a wicket fell, the Deccan Chargers went out of charge and suddenly were looking down the barrel at around 100-5. Then, Venugopala Rao hit some good shots to surge the Chargers to a total of 140. They needed quick wickets to stand a chance of winning the match. But, this was not to be. The Royals openers Yousuf Pathan and Graeme Smith got the run chase to a great start and a century stand was all that the Royals needed to beat the Chargers by 8 wickets. Pathan scored a quickfire 68 off 37 balls to win the man of the match. So, the Royals are back on top of the points table. Can anyone stop them!!!??!!
