A fiery spell of fast bowling by Dale Steyn, in which he picked up four wickets, helped the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) beat Karnataka State Cricket Association XI (KSCA XI) by 15 runs in a warm-up match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday.

Chasing a target of 146, KSCA XI did not have any momentum going for them and were bowled out for 130 in 19.1 overs. Bhuvanesh Kumar scored 35 which was the top score of the KSCA XI innings.

Steyn took the bowling honours for RCB with figures of 4 for 14, while R Vinay Kumar and Roeolf van der Merwe chipped in with two wickets apiece.

Earlier in the evening, RCB, led by Rahul Dravid's unbeaten 64, posted a competitive 145/4 in their allotted 20 overs. Dravid had only just returned from the Champions Trophy in South Africa and barely had had any time to recover from his jet lag. His knock came off 47 balls and consisted of three sixes and two boundaries. Virat Kohli made 24.

Gautam (2/31) took the bowling honours for KSCA XI, while Bhuvanesh Kumar and medium-pacer SL Akshay chipped in with a wicket each.

RCB, who have won both their warm-up matches, are due to take on Cape Cobras in the opening clash of the Champions League T20 in the M Chinnaswamy on Thursday evening.
