Surprisingly, Sanju Samson won the toss and decided to bat first as it has been their strength in the season so far. RR suffered an early blow when the LSG pacer, Avesh Khan cleaned up the in-form opener, Jos Buttler in the 3rd over itself. However, Yashasvi Jaiswal once again rose up to the occasion and played a fiery knock of 41 from 29 balls.

Sanju Samson and Devdutt Padikkal also played important knocks to make sure the Royals kept the run rate going. Eventually, RR managed to reach the total of 177/6 in their quota of 20 overs. After coming to defend 178, the Royals got Quinton de Kock early in the third over and then dismissed KL Rahul inside Powerplay as well.

Ayush Badoni, who was promoted at No. 3, fell for a first-ball duck, as LSG was left reeling at 34/3 at the end of six overs. Among three wickets, RR’s most precious wicket was Rahul’s. The LSG skipper struggled to get going, scoring just 10 off 19 balls before he fell to Prasidh Krishna in the sixth over.

Rahul hit a six earlier in the over, and tried to play off the front foot towards off side. However, it went straight to Yashasvi Jaiswal at point. Following the dismissal, RR players celebrated the wicket very much and rightly so, as they knew what Rahul could have done to shatter their Playoffs hopes had he stayed there for a while.
