IPL 2019: Hopes were high from KL Rahul from the KXIP match against the Royals at the Sawai Mann Singh Stadium, but he failed to come good and left his side in trouble straightaway. Rahul initially played a gorgeous cover-drive of just the second ball to fetch a boundary. But he was soon dismissed looking to fish outside the off-stump to a testing delivery in the corridor of uncertainty. It was a back of a length delivery jagging away slightly, swerving a little as well, and Rahul was on the backfoot, with a perfect set-up to punch it towards the covers, he tried to withdraw at the final moment, only to end up getting a thick outside edge to the right of the ‘keeper who dives full-stretch to his right to grab a fantastic catch.Also Read - LIVE IND vs SA Cricket Score 2nd ODI, Today Match Latest Updates: Dhawan, Rahul Get India Off To Flyer in Must-Win Game vs South Africa
