Smith (48 off 21) and Faulkner (41 off 17) blinders overshadow Yuvraj's heroics (83 and 4/35) as Rajasthan chase down RCB's 190 to win by 5 wickets.
Pre-match: The battle between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday is of huge importance for the latter who are struggling to stay afloat in IPL 7 reeling under a string of losses.
The two teams have had an entirely opposite run in their 8 matches apiece in the tournament so far, where Rajasthan have won 5 and lost 3 while Bangalore have lost 5 and won 3.
The aforementioned stats make it almost mandatory for RCB to end up as winners on Sunday, but it's not going to be easy against a resolute Rajasthan team.
