RR vs PBKS Live Score: KL Rahul looked ominous during his charismatic knock of 91 runs.© BCCI/IPL
After a good start with early wickets, Rajasthan Royals’ bowlers struggled to carry forward the momentum while the fielders also gave a lifeline each to Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul and Chris Gayle. Rahul enthralled with his masterly strokeplay, while finding an able ally in Deepak Hooda. Both batsmen smashed the Rajasthan Royals bowlers to all parts of the ground through incredible hitting, setting up an interesting run-chase for the fans. Rajasthan Royals’ openers will have their task cut out with captain Sanju Samson being the linchpin. Earlier, Rajasthan Royals handed four players their maiden caps for the franchise, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, Manan Vohra and Chetan Sakariya while Punjab handed a debut to the hard-hitting Shahrukh Khan. The 2008 winners will look for a fresh start under the new leadership of Sanju Samson, while Punjab Kings can expect inspirational guidance from the classy KL Rahul at the helm. While Rajasthan Royals finished at the bottom of the table at the end of the league stage in IPL 2020, Punjab Kings also faltered after a promising start to finish sixth in the points table last season.
