Rajasthan, Punjab keen to bounce back

Mumbai Indians’ Rohit Sharma

Aussie allrounder Marcus Stoinis added some polish to the Kings XI innings, blasting 29 from just 15 balls including two sixes.

Rahane, Buttler and Sanju Samson remain central to the Royals' batting plans if they are to succeed against KXIP, as big-money all-rounder Ben Stokes has failed to impress with either bat or ball, and his place in the team looks in jeopardy. This time the luck was also not on Yuvraj's side he got run out after a mix-up with Karun Nair (23 off 12).

With the exception of KXIP and DD, every other team in this edition of the IPL has at least four players who have faced more than 100 deliveries.

Kings XI Punjab is one of the founding franchise team in Indian Premier League or IPL but they yet to touch any title of it. Rajasthan's batting too has not been that great though in the previous match Jos Buttler and D'Arcy Short returned to some great form. Unleashed in the fourth over, Axar got Rahane (5) to cut one straight to backward point, where Gayle dived full length to his front and grabbed it inches above the turf. The Afghanistan off-spinner also accounted for unsafe Ben Stokes, (12) who was brilliantly caught by a relay from Mayank Agarwal and Manoj Tiwary at the long-off boundary.

Suryakumar Yadav (208.5 points) - He has 283 runs in 8 games, with two fifties and a strike-rate of 128.05. Before the start of the 17 KXIP needed 43 to win from 24 balls. Krunal's 31 run cameo came off just 12 balls. South African Jean-Paul Duminy has included in only several amusements and played a solitary innings hitting 23 runs. Pandya came to the party in the last game with a fifty and three wickets to his name, but it proved to be in vain. But then, just as his momentum was about to take him beyond the ropes he threw the ball towards an onrushing Manoj Tiwary who managed to hold on to it and dismiss Stokes. It was dependable KL Rahul 84 (54) who stuck to the crease till the very end.

Having watched the different facets of Rahul's innings - both from the dugout and during an unbeaten 68-run stand for the fifth wicket, Stoinis marvelled at the efforts of his fifth-wicket partner, terming it Rahul's "best innings" yet. A ball later, Archer was clean bowled with a googly that went between bat and pad. Soon, he castled Jofra Archer with a beauty of a delivery which pitched on off and turned back on sharply as the batsman could only stand in disbelief.it was a sensational spell and he returned with the magical figures of 3/27. It was getting a bit nervous but at least we got two points on the board now.
