Match Summary

Invited to Bat first by KXIP, RR lost 2 wickets soon. But Jos Buttler 51(39) and Sanju Samson 28(23) held the fortress for a while. Well as luck would have it baring Shreyas Gopal 24(16) none of the rest could stick to the crease. After the end of 20th over KXIP restricted Rajasthan on 152/9.

The target of 153 seems easy peesy when you have the likes of Gayle and KL Rahul. But Rajasthan knocked Gayle quite early and Punjab’s middle order crumbled similar to their opponents. It was dependable KL Rahul 84(54) who stuck to the crease till the very end. Taking support from Nair 31(23) and Stoinis 23(16), Rahul took his team to a win. KXIP now has 12 points.

Match Preview

Chris Gayle and KL Rahul form the engine room for KXIP; the five occasions they’ve walked out to open the innings, they’ve stitched together partnerships of 96, 53, 116, 55 & 54.

For the Royals, Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson are the men in form;  Jos Buttler was destructive on the top order and RR will do well to keep the Englishman at the top.

RR’s overall scoring rate against spin is the lowest of the season and R Ashwin and Mujeeb ur Rahman will have a huge role to play to keep the stat intact.

RR trump card is Jofra Archer, he can bowl quick and dish out the yorkers. In his 3 matches so far, he has picked up 7 wickets – which equals the most taken by a RR bowler this season.
