Rajasthan Royals in do-or-die situation at home against Kings XI Punjab

10 May, 2018, 00:29 | Author: Ethel Goodwin
  • Kings XI Punjab are placed fourth with five wins and three defeats

On the other hand, Rajasthan could make some hard changes.

Ravichandran Ashwin (KXIP captain), "Maybe eight runs more than the par, but I thought it was a 160 wicket".

He lost his opening partner Chris Gayle (1) on the first ball of the third over.

Mahipal Lomor, Heinrich Klaasen, Krishnappa Gowtham and the captain were screened at the SMS Medical College's Oncology Department as part of cancer awareness programme, using the IPL to drive home the point that the disease is curable with early detection and timely treatment. In his first over, he accounted for the dismissal of Ajinkya Rahane with a knuckle ball, and then finished off on a high picking up three wickets - two of them with the knuckle ball - bowling the 20th over of the innings. Jofra Archer come and leaves, Caught by Manoj Tiwary and Unadkat also leaves on the last ball, Caught by Nair.

RUN OUT! Smart work from Karun Nair in the deep sees Stuart Binny being run-out. Sodhi quickly bowled his three overs in a go and leaked miserly.

They are taking on Punjab, placed third in the table, just a day after losing to them by six wickets in Indore, where neither the bowlers nor the batsmen could do a convincing job.




By the end of 18th over, the required rate surged 23.5 an over which was almost impossible.

The legendary leg-spinner spoke at length after the game about how the Royals clicked as a team and how important this win was for them going forward. They have now won all five games played against KXIP at Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

For Rajasthan, Rahane needs to start leading from the front with the bat, given his captaincy is starting to come under the microscope. Jos Buttler with back to back half centuries at the top of the order is likely to open the innings in a lineup with a problem of plenty as far as openers are concerned.

The live telecast of the IPL 2018 match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab will start at 8 PM on May 8 (Tuesday). Pacer Andre Tye was the most successful KXIP bowler, returning figures of 4/34, while mystery spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman picked up 2/21 in four overs. The double strike means the seamer has claimed 14 victims to become the leading wicket-taker in the tournament.

Mujeeb- Has been tremendous in this IPL with his crafty spin bowling. Buttler scored 82 runs, stumped risky Chris Gayle and was instrumental in running out Axar Patel to turn the tide in his team's favour.
