The Kings XI take it. That was an action packed game of T20. Rajasthan were cruising at the halfway point of the chase, but it was a brilliant comeback from Punjab with the ball. A lot will be talked about the dismissal of Jos Buttler, which definitely played a huge part in the outcome. He was going amazingly well, before Ravi Ashwin got him with a Mankad run out. Aside from the controversy, Kings XI bowled brilliantly well at the death, and the batting was brainless from the Royals. Earlier on, Chris Gayle showed his class with a brutal 79, which set up the game for the visitors nicely, and it proved to be enough. The IPL will continue tomorrow, and if it carries on like today, you cannot miss it.

Another one goes. Rajasthan folding. Top delivery from Rajpoot, right in the blockhole, and Gowtham lobs it up to mid off off the toe end. A simple take for Shami, made to look very hard. Had to juggle it before hanging on.

19.2 - A Rajpoot to K Gowtham

Yorker, off stump driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Shami.
W
Nasty collision between bowler and keeper here, but another wicket for Kings XI. A fierce bouncer from Rajpoot, which cramps Unadkat for room. He flaps at the ball, it spoons high off the bat, and both Rajpoot and Pooran go for the catch. The bowler hangs on, but crashes into the keeper.

19.1 - A Rajpoot to J Unadkat

Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to short leg, by Rajpoot.
