End of Over No.20 Rajasthan Royals 170/7 Last Over (10 runs)

That’s a wrap here. Thanks for your company tonight. See ya again tomorrow.

R Ashwin is indeed the Man of the Match, only his second such award through 11 years of the IPL! “Very important for us ot get into the 10 point category. The race is heating up. Everyone is on eight points. It’s important to catch the momentum right now. Its incredibly tough to defend here. You get some sheen on the outfield nad the pitch in the night with the dew. But I thought we bowled really well, with Arshdeep executing his plans perfectly against Buttler. Mujeeb too. Arshdeep gets shape, swings the ball both ways. In Mohali, it doesn’t do much, but we are hoping for him to do more elsewhere. You’ve seen how swing helps with Chahar in CSK. It’s a process. A spinner is someone who reinvents the wheel all the time. For me it’s about hitting various lengths at different speeds. The undercutter, the reverse carrom. I live by the sword and die by it, plenty of people say I try too much, but it’s good that I’m keeping on experimenting. Most of our changes were forced. Moises was supposed to play but he injured his ankle before the toss, Miller came in and did well. [Injury updates] We’re waiting on Mujeeb [who hurt his left shoulder while fielding]. Moises seems to be okay, not much swelling at all.”

Nandakiran: “My Man of the match would be R Ashwin. Little cameo (helped take 18 runs off the last over) with the batting and tight spell, choking RR with two wickets.”

11.40 pm There’ll be plenty of questions asked about Royals’ batting order tonight. They were ahead of the game when Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi were in the middle. Then Kings XI’s spinners used the slowness of the pitch to pull things back and when that partnership was broke, Ajinkya Rahane walked out. Ashton Turner was there. Shreyas Gopal was there. Stuart Binny was there. All of them were far more suited to play the big hitter’s role. So 85 off 48 suddenly became 50 off 18 and well…

“I think, 182 on that wicket was chaseable. We started really well. It was just a matter of two sixes. Stuart was brilliant. In a game like this, you can’t criticise too much. Our last over was crucial,” Rahane says. “in a chase like this, you cannot lose too many wickets in clumps. There was a lot of runs. Discussion was to take it deep. Tripathi was struggling in the middle is opening. I can come in the middle order and take the game with the set batsman. Just that the guys will have to learn from their mistakes. We know batting side will come hard after 15 overs. Our bowlers did really well, the two legspinners and Jofra’s four overs too”

M Ashwin (who along with R Ashwin conceded only 48 runs in eight overs while picking up three big wickets): We just wanted to bowl well in tandem, the spinners and I think we did a very good job. We wanted to use the longer boundary and we wanted to make them hit there. It was coming onto the bat well. There wasn’t much dew though. We’ve played a few matches here, we know the strategies to use. Fortunately, I’ve played a lot of cricket wit Ashhwin and he’s been helping me a lot. We were really disappointed we weren’t able to defend the last game. Good to be back in winning ways

Ajay: “It’s clearly a slip from Rahane, if he could have allowed Binny to bat those extra few balls he would have scored those deficit runs. Not sure why Rahane still eats up the spot in RR line up.”

19.64 Mohammed Shami to Binny one-handed slash over extra cover and Agarwal won’t give this one up either, rushing to his left, diving, putting in everything even though these runs don’t matter. Kings XI win! FOUR
19.52 Mohammed Shami to Binny slower ball, which Binny lashes to the left of long-off, and Agarwal saves it with a proper sprint and well timed dive. Kings XI bossing this 2 runs
19.42 Mohammed Shami to Binny nails the yorker just outside leg stump, which is only because he is following a batsman making room for himself. Binny drills it to long-on and huffs and puffs for a couple 2 runs

Zaheer : “Yup, Binny is rubbing salt on RR team management’s wounds. Should have sent him up the order and played him in more games ”

19.32 Mohammed Shami to Binny thumps it down the ground as Shami just misses the yorker length. Binny’s plan of staying deep in his crease is working quite nicely. But there’s just too many runs to get 2 runs
19.20 Mohammed Shami to Binny nice yorker, tailing into leg stump with a mean streak. Binny though is just about able to squeeze it to point no run
19.1W Mohammed Shami to Gopal superb stuff! Shami spears a fuller delivery at 140 kph int leg stump. Gopal makes room to launch it over the off side, but it’s a mis-hit and it’s an easy catch at long-off OUT
S Gopal c Agarwal b Mohammed Shami 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chandan: “Rahane should do what Gambhir did last year… Step down as captain and give someone else a chance in his place…He certainly doesn’t deserve to be in side with that kind of form”

End of Over No.19 Rajasthan Royals 160/6 Last Over (14 runs)

Royals need 23 off six balls. Shami will bowl it. He’ll have to deal with two fairly big hitters

18.66 Arshdeep Singh to Binny hammers it down the ground. Binnsta! You gangsta! He fools Arshdeep with his back leg going down leg. He makes him bowl outside off. And he’s waiting with the perfect shot SIX
18.50 Arshdeep Singh to Binny full and wide outside off, Binny looks for the slap over cover but misses it altogether no run
18.46 Arshdeep Singh to Binny into the crowd again! Binny finds the leg side boundary by being a lot more still in the crease; a lot more calm. Some of that is due to his batting so deep in the crease, waiting for the slightest mistake. And here he gets the room to swing his arms as much as he wants and swing he does over midwicket SIX
18.3W Arshdeep Singh to Rahane more offcutters and this one is taken by short third man running nearly all the way to the boundary! Brilliant stuff from Arshdeep to trust his slower balls. To line them up well outside off, meaning Rahane’s helpless flail into the leg side, takes a clean top edge. And even better catching from Shami, his eyes always on the ball. OUT
AM Rahane c Mohammed Shami b Arshdeep Singh 26 (37m 21b 1×4 0x6) SR: 123.80
18.22 Arshdeep Singh to Rahane steps out of his crease to smear a wide delivery outside off to deep cover. This is good stuff from Arshdeep, not giving up the easy leg-side boundary that batsman crave in this stage of the innings 2 runs
18.10 Arshdeep Singh to Rahane takes all the pace off the ball and places it well outside off. Rahane, walking across to sweep it, can only cue-end it back down the pitch no run

Lakshman Kumar: “For God’s sake it’s Indian Premier League..! Trust your Indian hitters like Gopal and Binny atleast here..!! Don’t kill the talent with lack of opportunity..!! ” —- Here’s another promising talent. Arshdeep bowling the 19th!

End of Over No.18 Rajasthan Royals 146/5 Last Over (13 runs)

Royals need 37 off 12 now

Zaheer : “The more you expect, the more they disappoint ”

17.61 Mohammed Shami to Rahane full toss following Rahane’s movement outside leg. He can only slice it to point 1 run

Rahane leaps outside off, prepared to scoop again, but this time Shami doesn’t release the ball. OOoooh, this is fun. #ThankYouBinny

17.51 Mohammed Shami to Binny goes full now and Binny drills it to deep midwicket 1 run
17.46 Mohammed Shami to Binny scoops it outta here! He gets inside the line of a short ball angled into him and with that angle he just helps the ball away. Sensible, sensational batting SIX

Hemanth Subrama: “Isn’t this the same ground where Turner turned tables on India? Where was M Ashwin then? ;-)”

17.34 Mohammed Shami to Binny launches the short ball outside off to the square leg boundary, bisecting the two men in the deep. That’s brilliant hitting FOUR
17.21 Mohammed Shami to Rahane backs away and pulls the short ball on leg stump to deep square leg 1 run
17.1W Mohammed Shami to Archer taken at long-on! Archer biffs a short ball outside off with great power, but these are long boundaries and that’s a top fielder. KL Rahul comes in off the boundary and takes it ever so confidently. Royals need 50 off 17 now OUT
JC Archer c Rahul b Mohammed Shami 1 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

vishu: “Welcome to the port Royal Mr. turner!!! :D” — A POTC fan!

End of Over No.17 Rajasthan Royals 133/4 Last Over (6 runs)

16.61 M Ashwin to Archer punches the flatter delivery outside off through the covers 1 run
16.50 M Ashwin to Archer the pitch is too slow. New batsmen can’t come in and go bang bang. Not even Archer, who goes for a big hit and ends up chopping it back to the bowler no run
16.41 M Ashwin to Rahane shortish and outside off, he cuts to the sweeper 1 run

Siddarth: “3rd Consecutive Duck for Turner in T20s. ”

16.3W M Ashwin to Turner duck on IPL debut! This, strangely enough, is a slow, tossed up legbreak, possibly because Ashwin thinks he can bait the big hitter into a false shot. And bait him he does. The equation makes Turner go for it. The turn on the ball makes the shot go to long-off when he is looking to go dead straight. Miller runs in and takes the catch and Royals are in a mess again OUT
AJ Turner c Miller b M Ashwin 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
16.31 M Ashwin to Turner spears the legbreak well wide of off stump, hoping to keep away from Turner’s hitting arc 1 wide
16.21 M Ashwin to Rahane gets down low and pulls the short ball on leg stump to deep square leg 1 run
16.12 M Ashwin to Rahane mis-hit, catching chance, but it falls short of long-off racing in off the boundary! Ashwin hits the deck with a very fast legbreak and the pitch responds by giving the ball extra fizz, making it bounce awkwardly on Rahane, who skews a pull shot down the ground 2 runs

End of Over No.16 Rajasthan Royals 127/3 Last Over (5 runs)

Royals need 56 off 24. But they do have a man capable of pulling it off in Ashton Turner and he’s the one that’s walking out to the middle. What a stage for his debut IPL innings.

15.6W R Ashwin to Tripathi taken at long-off. The run-rate kept rising. He had to do something about it. He sees a short ball outside off, goes for the lofted drive, but the ball seems to come off the higher part of the bat and so doesn’t have the timing to clear the fence OUT
RA Tripathi c Agarwal b R Ashwin 50 (74m 45b 4×4 0x6) SR: 111.11
15.51 R Ashwin to Rahane short and wide outside off, Rahane cuts to deep point 1 run
15.41 R Ashwin to Tripathi more carroms, Tripathi swings it out to deep midwicket to get his fifty. Mild applause from his team-mates but there’s no celebration from him 1 run
15.30 R Ashwin to Tripathi carrom ball, outside off, Tripathi flat-bats it back at the bowler no run
15.31 R Ashwin to Tripathi stumps him?. Ashwin sees Tripathi haring down the pitch and slides the ball so beautiful wide outside the off stump. The batsman swings in complete desperation, misses it altogether, but replays show he does have the agility to shove his bat inside the crease before Pooran could break the stumps. The wicketkeeper had a huge distance to cover, collecting the ball and breaking the stumps 1 wide
