Rajasthan Royals pacer Vikramjeet Malik took three wickets and Sanju Samson hit a fluent half-century to lift Rajasthan Royals to a seven-wicket victory against Rajasthan Royals in the opening match of the Champions League T20 in Jaipur, on Saturday.

- Scorecard

Malik struck early when he dismissed opener Dwayne Smith leg before wicket for nine with one that kept low in his very first over. Dinesh Karthik also perished early when he was bowled by Malik after struggling for two from 11 balls. He emerged as the best bowler for Rajasthan, claiming three for 24 in four overs as Mumbai were restricted to 142 for seven before Samson's sparkling innings of 54 helped the hosts clinch victory with two balls to spare.
