Tough game tonight.#KXIPvRR #HallaBol #JazbaJeetKa #VIVOIPL
KXIP beat RR by 6 wickets.
Archer to bowl the 19th. Rahul is looking to ends things early now as he stands in his crease and sends the next ball straight over the Archer’s head for a SIX. He picks up another double off the 3rd ball. Rahul then ends the game as he sends the 4th ball to extra cover for a FOUR. What an innings by Rahul as he guides Kings XI to victory with a stylish knock.
KXIP 155/4 after 18.4 overs.
Unadkat to bowl the 18th over. Great running between the wickets as they pick up doubles on the first 2 deliveries. Unadkat comes from over the wicket and sends the next one short and wide on the leg stump, Rahul pulls the ball over long leg for a SIX. Rahul then backs away and cuts the next ball between short third man and backward point for a FOUR.
Big over as KL Rahul has turned the game strongly in Punjab’s favor with those boundaries. KXIP now need just 12 runs off 12 balls to win.
KXIP 141/4 after 18 overs.
Archer is back to pile the pressure on Punjab. He looks for the Yorker but ends up sending in a full toss which Stoinis slams through extra cover for a FOUR. Archer sends one short and wide but Rahul gets his blade underneath it as he plays the uppercut, the pace of the ball takes it high over the third man boundary for a SIX. 16 runs come off the over.
KXIP need 27 runs from 18 balls to win.
KXIP 126/4 after 17 overs.

Stokes back into the attack. Good running by the KXIP men as they get doubles on the 3rd and 4th delivery. Good over by Stokes as he gives away just 8 runs.
KXIP now need 43 runs from 24 balls to win.
KXIP 110/4 after 16 overs.
Unadkat back to bowl. Stoinis gets lucky on the 2nd delivery as the off cutter gets a thick outside edge but the ball is a bit too wide for a diving Buttler to get his glove behind it as it sails towards third man for a FOUR. Stoinis looks to steal a single on the 4th ball, a direct hit by Rahane would’ve spelt the end for the KXIP all-rounder. Samson dives forward to take a great catch on the next delivery, it’s the wicket of danger man KL Rahul, Umpires aren’t sure and go to the third umpire. Soft signal is not out and after looking at numerous replays the third umpire agrees. That was close, Samson looked to have almost gotten his fingers underneath that one.
KXIP 102/4 after 15 overs.
Gopal to bowl his 3rd over. Stoinis the new man in struggles to pick the length of the first 2 balls he faces. He then extends his front foot and sends the 5th ball straight down the ground for a SIX. 8 runs come off that over.
KXIP need 58 runs from 36 balls to win.
KXIP 95/4 after 14 overs.
Gowtham back into the attack. CAUGHT! Gowtham sends one short down the leg stump and Patel slogs it over mid-wicket, Short who is stationed at the boundary leaps into the air right at the edge of the boundary and takes a beautiful catch to dismiss the batsman. Rajasthan seem to be making their way back into the game here.
KXIP 87/4 after 13 overs.
WICKET! A Patel C Short b Gowtham 4 (5)
Unadkat back to bowl. Rahul gets an edge on the 3rd ball but it doesn’t carry all the way to Buttler behind the wickets. Another brilliant over by Unadkat as he concedes just 3 runs in it.

KXIP 83/3 after 12 overs.
Anureet to continue. He sends the 3rd delivery down the leg stump and Nair flicks it off his pads and sends it over backward square leg for a SIX. Anureet gets his revenge off the 5th ball, he sends in a shorter length delivery outside off stump and Nair who goes for the pull only manages to get an inside edge on it that sends the ball straight into the stumps. 12 runs and a wicket come off that over.
