  • Chris Gayle scored his third fifty of the IPL in the last game

This will be the tenth match for both the teams. Ajinkya Rahane's side also had a similar fate, as they have now lost back to back three games. The Jamaican swashbuckler tried charging down the ground to smash Krishnappa Gowtham for a maximum, only to be conned by the bowler who bowled a wide and the wicketkeeper Jos Buttler dislodged the stumps. Meanwhile, Rahane's opening partner, Jos Buttler rocketed away and built a solid foundation. Buttler scored 82 runs, stumped unsafe Chris Gayle and was instrumental in running out Axar Patel to turn the tide in his team's favour.

The Royals later lost Stuart Binny but as the Royals looked like making a comeback into the game, Tye bounced back with three wickets in the final over to restrict the opposition.

The England global registered a third successive half-century since his promotion to the top of the order, hitting a solitary six and nine fours in his 58-ball knock.

After 10 overs Rajasthan scored 82 runs for two wickets.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels. Though they rely heavily on good partnerships between Chris Gayle and KL Rahul the likes of Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair and Marcus Stoinis have been able to contribute handsomely.

Orrin Hatch: It's 'Ridiculous' For McCain To Bar Trump From His Funeral
Even the most avid Trump supporter must flinch at his comments regarding McCain , a true American hero. The Arizona senator and the president have fought on multiple occasions.

Rajasthan is struggling with their bowlers and medium pacer Jofra Archer proved to be the most expensive bowler, who gave 43 runs in 3.4 overs.

The visitors kept losing wickets with Akshdeep Nath, Manoj Tiwary, Axar Patel falling at regular intervals. KL Rahul yet again scored big, an unbeaten 95, but it was all in vain as it came amidst a surprise batting meltdown. Falling short of 15 runs, KXIP accepted via RR's hand. But Buttler continued his onslaught on the Rajasthan bowlers as he picked two consecutive boundaries off Tye.

Mujeeb ur Rahman was sensational yet again; KXIP's mystery spinner, smartly introduced into the attack only in the tenth over, returned figures of 4-0-21-2. Punjab are third on 12 points. However, he could be forgiven as he had only bowled 1 over. The double strike means the seamer has claimed 14 victims to become the leading wicket-taker in the tournament.

The dream start was provided by Krishnappa Gowtham as the off-spinner sent back the risky Chris Gayle with the first ball of the third over.
