Rajasthan Royals (RR) beat Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 fixture on October 30 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
This was a crucial game for both the teams, with RR fighting for survival and KXIP aiming to take a step further towards a Playoff spot while riding high on their winning streak. That, however, was not to be.
Earlier, Chris Gayle continued with his menacing form, smashing a 63-ball 99 to steer KXIP to 185 for 4. Gayle and captain KL Rahul (46) took the RR bowlers to the cleaners, stitching 120 runs for the second wicket in 13.4 overs to help KXIP post a challenging total after being put in to bat.
Their performance was, however, matched by Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson and captain Steve Smith for RR.
