Rajasthan Royals (RR) ensured they stay alive in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with a hard fought victory against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on Tuesday. Another win for Punjab will nearly seal them a play-off berth and a defeat will be the end of the road for Rajasthan. With this loss, Rajasthan's chances of qualifying for the play-offs are over.

Over 15: 92/6, Kings XI Punjab need 67 runs in 30 balls.

Rahul felt that it was important as an opener to convert the good starts into big scores for the team.

Kings XI's chase, however, started on a bad note as they lost unsafe Chris Gayle (8) and Mayank Agarwal (2) in successive overs. Especially, Axar Patel and Marcus Stoinis delivered with useful contributions and the skipper will want to back them with more opportunities. Soon, the duo managed to overhaul the target with more than one over remaining.

For the hosts, Gowtham emerged with impressive figures of 2/12 off his three overs while Archer, Unadkat, Stokes and Sodhi bagged a wicket each.

In the points table of IPL 2018, Kings XI Punjab is at the third place with 12 points and the team Rajasthan Royals is at the last place with six points.


Mujeeb Ur Rehman was chosen as the Player of the match for his splendid bowling.

The teenager not only took wickets but also proved to be economical right from his first two-over spell which put pressure on the Rajasthan top-order.

The 31-year-old has scored 231 runs in 10 matches at an average of 28.87 and a strike rate of 142.59.

WICKET! Knuckle ball does the trick for Tye as Rahane tries to scoop one over mid-wicket but his early shot gives a leading edge that heads to the man at extra-cover. On this occasion, wary of the lack of power-hitters down the order, their third-wicket stand lasted till the 15th over. However, D'Arcy Short and Ajinkya Rahane struggled to find fluency in their batting and it was left to Sanju Samson to get some runs with Buttler. Archer was foxed by a googly before the delivery rattled the stumps as Rajasthan innings was derailed. Thorough performance from Rajasthan Royals to move up to the sixth on the table.

During the 2015 ODI World Cup, New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum was praised for using his strike bowlers through the middle overs to pick up wickets, instead of holding them back for the later stages of the innings.
