Rajasthan Royals Defeat Kings XI Punjab By 15 Runs
Wednesday, 09 May 2018 - 8:47
Rajasthan Royals lived to fight another day with a 15-run win over Kings XI Punjab as KL Rahul's unbeaten 95, coming amidst a surprise batting meltdown, went in vain in the Indian Premier League yesterday.
Opting to bat in this must-win game, Rajasthan Royals could only muster 158 for 8, despite Jos Buttler's blazing 58-ball 82 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.
The home team, however, staged a strong fight-back with the ball, as it restricted Kings XI Punjab to 143 for 7 in the stipulated 20 overs.
Languishing at the bottom of the table prior to this game, RR has now moved to the 6th place, while KXIP remained in the 3rd position.
