    FOUR! Jaydev Unadkat to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement reverse sweeping, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. KL Rahul ends on 95 not out, and was a complete lone wolf in the Kings XI batting attempt. Another reverse scoop to finish off the game, it's a magnificent shot yet again.

    Rajasthan Royals get a much needed win. Jos Buttler did the damage for them with the bat. Things seemed to get harder as the game went on. The pitch got slower and scoring became more difficult. The credit still goes to the Royals, who have capped off an impressive win. They go up to sixth in the table, and Kings XI remain third. Tomorrow's IPL action has KKR up against Mumbai. Join us for that.

    Jaydev Unadkat to Lokesh Rahul. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed to extra cover for no runs, dropped catch by Unadkat, fielded by Rahane. Harsh to call it a drop. Unadkat trying to protect himself more that go for the catch. Rahul blasts it back to him, and it bounces off the forearm to safety.

    OUT! Caught. Jaydev Unadkat to Marcus Stoinis. Full toss, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Gowtham. Absolutely spanked out the middle of the bat by Stoinis, but he picks the fielder out in the deep. Gowtham snaffles a stinger with ease, and cooly puts the ball in his pocket after completing the catch.

    FOUR! Jofra Archer to Lokesh Rahul. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front Scoop, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Same again. A nicer length to play the shot. Rahul gets underneath it, and lifts the ball away for another boundary.

    FOUR! Jofra Archer to Lokesh Rahul. Half volley, outside off stump moves in front Scoop, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. He's been bowling the yorkers so well, so it isn't a surprise that Rahul brings this shot out. Steps across, gets low, and flicks it over short fine leg's head.

  • 18.4

    FOUR! Jofra Archer to Lokesh Rahul. Slower length ball, wide outside off stump moves in front driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past long off for 4 runs.
