Bowling with the new ball, Chandila took the wickets of Jesse Ryder (1), Sourav Ganguly (1) and Robin Uthappa (0) to finish with figures of 4-13.

The victory kept the Royals in the hunt for a playoff place with 14 points from seven victories while it was the eighth straight loss for the Warriors who are second from the bottom on eight points.
