PKBS restricted RR to 185 in 20 overs. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal came out to open the innings and gave their team a flying start. Both players played shots and showed intent to chase the target as early as possible.

Rajasthan Royals were all over the place in the field. Rahul got three lifelines inside the powerplay as RR fielders kept dropping his catch. The first instance came in the second over when Evin Lewis dropped him.

Riyan Parag was the culprit the second time when he dropped a catch which he grabbed at one point. Chetan Sakariya dropped the third catch in the sixth over off Mustafizur Rehman. This is looking like Rahul’s day as he is living a charmed life in the middle.
