The Otago cricketers have been beaten by the Rajasthan Royals by 4 wickets in their final group match at the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in India.

Otago made 139 for 7 against top of the table Rajasthan with James Neesham top scoring with 32.

Neesham took 3 wickets as Rajasthan reached their target with 5 balls to spare.
