MATCH HIGHLIGHTS IPL 2020, RR (226/6) beat KXIP (223/2) by 4 wickets in Sharjah

In their last game, Rahul single-handedly blew the Virat Kohli-led RCB away with his unbeaten 132. Later, the Punjab bowlers also rose to the occasion and bundled out RCB for a paltry 109, setting up a massive 97-run win. Punjab’s bowling, led by Mohammad Shami, meanwhile, looks in good rhythm. In the spin department, youngster Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin were also clinical as they scalped three wickets each against RCB. KXIP head coach Anil Kumble’s strategy of going with two leg-spinners clicked on Thursday. However, it remains to be seen whether Punjab will continue with the combination or opt for a change against Royals.

Leaving the past behind, KXIP bowlers would certainly not take the Rajasthan batters lightly, especially looking at their decent show against CSK on Tuesday night. Though Sanju Samson and skipper Steve Smith had an outstanding time with the bat against CSK, the rest of the RR batters were unimpressive.

While young Yashasvi Jaiswal, who opened against CSK, failed to provide a solid start after being packed back early, experienced Robin Uthappa and David Miller too fell cheaply. If Jofra Archer hadn’t smoked four maximums off the final over, RR would have surely not crossed the 200-run mark. Looking at KXIP’s immaculacy in bowling attack, the RR batters need to be very watchful.

    Dream11 IPL 2020 Live Cricket Updates RR vs KXIP: WOW! What a game of cricket we have witnessed here! A record-breaking chase and it was a game not for the faint-hearted. Rajasthan have done it again. They surprised the mighty Chennai in the last game and tonight they have chased down the highest ever total chased in this league. Take a bow, Steven Smith. Take a bow, Sanju Samson but just give a big salute to Rahul Tewatia. He might have had a lot of Rajasthan’s fans heads scratching in anger in the middle but towards the end, he has become their superhero, their messiah, their latest darling! Chasing a humongous total of 224, Rajasthan got off to a poor start as they lost their star Jos Buttler early in the innings. Steven Smith and Sanju Samson continued from where they left off. The duo added 81 runs between them with the skipper getting to his fifty but falling prey. Rajasthan threw a surprise as they sent Rahul Tewatia ahead of Robin Uthappa. Sanju Samson continued his outlandish form and kept Rajasthan in the chase. He though was not getting any support from the other end as Rahul Tewatia was struggling to find the middle of the bat. Samson’s 85 though kept the glimmer of hope alive but once he departed it looked like the hopes of a Rajasthan win also went away with him. Tewatia though turned the tide and boy did he turn the tie away in some manner. From stuttering at 8 off 19 balls, Tewatia unleashed the monster inside of him and it was Cottrell who brunt the heat. He hit 5 sixes off Cottrell’s over and finished the game with 53 off 31 balls. That along with Archer’s cameo and Tom Curran’s one ball boundary helped Rajasthan create history.
