HIGHLIGHTS

  • Rahul Tewatia hit five sixes in an over after Sanju Samson and Steve Smith hit sparkling fifties as Rajasthan Royals chased down the highest ever total of IPL to beat Kings XI Punjab by 4 wickets in Sharjah.
  • Earlier, Mayank Agarwal scored his maiden IPL ton off 45 balls and KL Rahul scored 69 as their record opening partnership propelled Kings XI Punjab to 223 for 2 after being sent in to bat first by Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith who won the toss and opted to bowl first.
  • Buttler and Ankit Rajpoot came in place of Yashasvi Jaiswal and David Miller. KXIP went in with an unchanged squad.

CONCLUSION

Mayank took on the likes of Jaydev Unadkat, Shreyas Gopal, Rahul Tewatia, etc. He played the sweep shots, pull and cover-drives and timed it all to perfection.
On the other hand, Rahul, too, played the perfect anchor’s role as both the openers made full use of the shorter boundaries.
As a result, they stitched KXIP’s highest opening stand in IPL history, going past Adam Gilchrist and Paul Valhathy’s 136 versus the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in IPL 2011. Thus, KXIP posted a mammoth 223 for 2.
