23:33 (IST)16 Apr 2019

KXIP need 23 to win off 6

And Binny has scored 23 off 6 so far. He has gone ballistic and RR must be thinking why he wasn’t sent out earlier. But Binny is off strike, Shami is bowling the last over. 

23:25 (IST)16 Apr 2019

18 overs gone

It is all down to captain Rahane now. He has Stuart Binny at the other end to give him company, who does know how to swing a bat. He has 10 First Class hundreds to his name, but if RR have to win this game, Rahane has to take the lead.

23:15 (IST)16 Apr 2019


Golden duck on debut for Ashton Turner. He did face a wide delivery before this. Murugan Ashwin baits him with a slow tossed up legbreak and Turner bites. Hit hits the ball straight to long off. 

23:14 (IST)16 Apr 2019

WICKET! And Tripathi falls

He holes out at long off and Ashwin punches the air. This is an inspired performance from the KXIP captain. 

23:11 (IST)16 Apr 2019

50 for Tripathi

He almost got stumped on 49. Tripathi charged down the track and Ashwin slid the ball wide. Tripathi could not reach it and Pooran took the bails off, Tripathi dove back managed to make his ground. 

22:51 (IST)16 Apr 2019

OUT! And Ashwin does strike!

Sanju Samson absolutely bamboozled there. Ashwin puts it on the off side, Samson goes for the sweep but the ball skids past him and hits the off stump. 

22:41 (IST)16 Apr 2019

9 overs gone

Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi keepings things floating for the Royals. They need 98 to win from 66 balls. 

22:26 (IST)16 Apr 2019

OUT! Buttler goes

Arshdeep Singh’s first wicket is none other than Jos Buttler but credit for this wicket goes entirely to Nicholas Pooran. Buttler gets a leading edge that balloons high up in the air, Pooran runs back and dives to pouch it. 

22:19 (IST)16 Apr 2019

our overs gone

A good start for the Royals and Buttler has powered it. He has scored 23 off 18 balls and Tripathi is on 8 off 8.

22:02 (IST)16 Apr 2019

The players are back

Rahul Tripathi is Jos Buttler’s opening partner today, not Ajinkya Rahane. 20-year-old Arshdeep Singh, who looks like he bunked school to play this match, is bowling the first over. 

21:46 (IST)16 Apr 2019

A big finish by skipper Ashwin

RR’s good work in the death overs have been undone somewhat by Ashwin’s belligerence. He lets the penultimate ball fly over midwicket an then scoops the last and KXIP set up a total of 182/6.

21:40 (IST)16 Apr 2019

What an over from Archer

Archer’s 19th over has been devastating for KXIP. Two wickets and three runs from it. The first wicket is off the second ball as Pooran holes out at covers. The second comes off the last as Mandeep Singh chops a short delivery on. 

21:30 (IST)16 Apr 2019

WICKET! Rahul falls

Unadkar roars in delight. He has been taken to all corners of the park by the batsmen today so this is a welcome wicket indeed. A yorker outside off that Rahul squirts fine and it travels striaght to short third man. Stunned silence around the ground as a very good innings comes to an end. 

21:06 (IST)16 Apr 2019


KL Rahul smashes a short delivery from Sodhi about 20 rows into the stands. KXIP have moved into three figures and this is a good partnership building between Rahul and David Miller. 

20:58 (IST)16 Apr 2019

A milestone for Rahul

With a single off Shreyas Gopal, KL Rahul has now scored 1000 runs for Kings XI Punjab. 

20:51 (IST)16 Apr 2019

10 overs gone

We hare halfway through the innings and KL Rahul has scored 13 off 23 balls. It is a good foundation that has been built but Rahul performance will be judged by whether he can get going after this or not. If he succumbs, his innings would turn out to a colossal waste of deliveries.

20:43 (IST)16 Apr 2019


He gets down on one knee to Ish Sodhi, looks for a slog sweep and ends up getting the all high up in the air. But there is not enough distance on the shot. The ball goes really high though and Joffra Archer does well to keep an eye on it all the way despite all the lights and hold on to it. You just can’t keep him out of the game, can you? 

20:38 (IST)16 Apr 2019

Agarwal arrives, sees and conquers

KL Rahul has faced 17 balls and scored 6 runs while Mayank Agarwal has raced to 23 off 9. The third ball he faced was lofted straight over the bowler’s head and he has since since hit one more maximum and a four. 

20:28 (IST)16 Apr 2019

OUT! Archer gets Gayle

It’s that man Joffra Archer again with the big wicket. Length delivery that squares up Gayle, takes an outside edge and flies straight into the keeper’s hands. 

20:21 (IST)16 Apr 2019

Four overs gone

Archer finished off a scorcher of an over off which only two runs came. KXIP are 21/0 and Ashwin will be more worried with each passing over that Gayle or Rahul survive. 

20:13 (IST)16 Apr 2019


Chris Gayle is up and running. The first shot came off the fourth ball of the second over bowled by Jaydev Unadkat, Gayle was caught inside the crease and his pull wasn’t timed well. The ball balloons up in the air and just beats Joffra Archer at deep square. The second one required no such good fortune though, it was dismissively thumped into the stands behind long on. 

20:02 (IST)16 Apr 2019

The players are out

Chris Gayle and KL Rahul open the batting for KXIP, Dhawal Kulkarni has the ball in his hand. Here we go! 

19:48 (IST)16 Apr 2019

He is a legend isn’t he.

Ashton Turner

Indian fans watching this game won’t remember him too fondly. A month ago, on this very ground, Turner had launched a stunning assault on the Indian bowling attack and no one, not even Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Jasprit Bumrah, could lay a hand on him as he led Australia to a 4-wicket win over India.

19:34 (IST)16 Apr 2019

RR win the toss, choose to field…

…as teams winning the toss in this tournament always do. Ashton Turner is making his IPL debut, says Ajinkya Rahane. Stuart Binny is also back and Ish Sodhi will be playing. No Steve Smith.

19:15 (IST)16 Apr 2019

Hello and welcome!

Stopping Jos Buttler. This has been something that teams in the IPL have pondered over for two seasons now. Ravichandran Ashwin found a way of doing it last season and that led to David Warner craning his back to ensure that he remains within the crease before Ashwin bowls a delivery. Buttler’s form has decided how RR perform for two seasons because without him, and Joffra Archer to a certain extent, what RR have got is a team of underperforming players who can be pretty good and who have shown flashes of brilliance here and there, but never got into full flow playing for the franchise.
