19.6 - J Unadkat to L Rahul
FOUR! Another boundary, but RAJASTHAN WIN BY 15 RUNS! Rahul carries his bat through but it goes in vain. Unleashes the reverse paddle to find the third man fence, is left stranded on 95. Heartbreak for him.
19.5 - J Unadkat to L Rahul
FOUR! Boundary, all but over now though. Full and outside off, Rahul brings out the reverse paddle and clears short third man's head to send it across the rope.
19.4 - J Unadkat to L Rahul
Technically a dropped, but such a difficult chance. Full on the stumps, Rahul hammers it right back at Unadkat. He tries to catch it but takes a blow on his forearm. No run taken.
19.3 - J Unadkat to L Rahul
SIX! Makes full use of it. It's full and outside off, Rahul gets behind the ball and launches it over wide long off for a maximum. This is now his highest score in this edition of the Indian T20 League.
19.3 - J Unadkat to L Rahul
No ball! High full toss from Jaydev, Rahul walks across the line to paddle scoop it, but only inside edges it towards square leg. No run taken, he wants to face the Free Hit coming up now.
19.2 - J Unadkat to A Tye
Full in length, attacking the stumps, Tye drills it towards mid on for a single.
19.1 - J Unadkat to M Stoinis
OUT! Stoinis has to make the long walk back! Low full toss wide outside off, Stoinis carves this over covers. Hits it flat and that becomes his undoing. Straight to Gowtham out in the deep who takes it above his head. Holds a cool pose too as he puts the ball in his pocket and stands there with his arms folded. Lovely.
Ov 19: 1 1 2 4 4 4 ( 16 Runs )
18.6 - J Archer to L Rahul
FOUR! Three in a row. Once more, goes across and lifts it over short fine leg to find the fence. 32 required off the last over. Too much left probably for Punjab to do.
18.5 - J Archer to L Rahul
FOUR! Consecutive boundaries for KL! Fuller around off, Rahul goes across and scoops it over short fine leg for a boundary.
18.4 - J Archer to L Rahul
FOUR! Good adjustment from KL Rahul. Credit to Archer too, he did well actually. Seeing Rahul walk across the stumps, he bowls it wide outside off. Rahul prepares for the paddle at first, but then quickly adjusts and slaps it through mid off. Unadkat gives it the chase, but can't keep it in. Boundary.
18.3 - J Archer to L Rahul
Archer and yorkers - a better love story than Twilight. Superb. Fires it in, on the stumps this time, Rahul works it through mid-wicket and gets a couple of runs for it.
18.2 - J Archer to M Stoinis
Another yorker from Archer, outside the line of off stump, Marcus digs it out in front of cover and brings Rahul on strike.
18.1 - J Archer to L Rahul
Slower length delivery just outside off, Rahul walks across his sticks and sweeps it over backward square leg. The fielder in the deep comes inside and restricts the single to just the one.
