IPL Match 7 Scorecard: Royals Defeat Mighty Knights

Royals won their 14th match at home defending the fortress against the strong Kolkata Knight Riders. The star-studded KKR players could hit sixes, but none succeeded to play a long innings. Dravid’s introduction of Chavan and Amit Singh against strong KKR top order proved a master-stroke as KKR was reeling at 8/3. Defending the fortress, Royals relished the victory against the new captain, Dravid.
