Royals do the unthinkable, beat Punjab in a thriller

Sep 28, 2020 08:17 IST

It was a game that redefined the meaning of a see-saw battle as Rajasthan Royals pulled off an unbelievable 4-wicket win from the jaws of defeat vs the Kings XI Punjab. Chasing 224, the Royals raced to 100 within 9 overs. Steve Smith fell for 50 but Sanju Samson continued to march on in style. Meanwhile, Rahul Tewatia took 23 balls for his first 17 runs. When Samson got out for 85, it seemed the end of Royals' run chase but Tewatia had other plans. A move to send him up the order was being seen as a disaster but he suddenly switched gears and pulled off one of the most sensational turn arounds in the IPL. Tewatiya smashed 5 sixes in the 18th over and raced to his fifty off 30 balls. 86 runs were scored in the last 4 overs as the Royals pulled off the highest successful run-chase in the history of the league. 2 wins in as many games has now taken them to the 2nd spot.
