As it happened: Rajasthan Royals vs Highveld Lions, Match 9, CLT20

Rajasthan Royals are ready to guard their Sawai Mansingh Stadium fortress in Jaipur as the Highveld Lions from South Africa try to break the stronghold of Rahul Dravid & Co. in a Group A match of the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) on Wednesday.

Rajasthan added another win to their unbeaten home record during IPL6, when they defeated Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener on Saturday and will pose a tough challenge to HL who are short of match practice after their first match against Perth Scorchers was washed out at Ahmedabad on Monday.

Considering how the spot-fixing controversy has hounded the team, Rajasthan have done well to extend their winning streak at home to nine matches now and will like to consolidate their position in Group A with another win.
