Shreyas Gopal stars as Rajasthan Royals registered their first win.
The leggie picked up three big wickets of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Hetmyer. RR won the toss and opted to bowl first. Both the temas made certain changes to their playing eleven. RCB got off to a decent start scoring 48 in first six. But then in came the leggie who just spun a web around RCB. Shreyas Gopal as mentioned got three huge wickets. Parthiv Patel looked to be batting on a different surface as he scored 67. Stoinis brought in as replacement held one end and with Moeen Ali in the death overs finished at 158. This score looked below par. RR had a great opportunity to get the much needed two points on the table and they did that comfortably in the end. Both the openers Rahane and Buttler were off to a flier scoring 55 off first six. However Virat Kohli dropped Rahane when the batter was on 1. Chahal got the all important breakthrough by trapping Rahane in front of the stumps. Buttler meanwhile on the other hand got going and brought up his 50, second of this IPL. He too was dismissed by Chahal. Tripathi and Steve Smith made sure that there were no additional hiccups as they batted sensibly and playing risk free shots. The hosts in the end won by 7 wickets with a ball to spare. Shreyas Gopal was rightly given Man of the Match. RCB looked below par in every department specifically fielding. They had dropped catches which one would expect them to hold on to. It is high time now for RCB as they need to win 8 out of the remaining 10 matches to qualify for Play-offs.
Buttler Innings Go Vain As Punjab Beat Rajasthan Royals !
As we all know that IPL 2019 has been running successfully.The fourth match of Indian premier league was played between Rajasthan Royals and king ll Punjab at Jaipur stadium, which is home ground for Rajasthan.Both teams were playing their first match of season 12 of Indian premier league.Both are aiming to start the season with winning but here one team only able to do that. In this match, many up and down occur during the match and finally, king ll Punjab wins it. Moreover, it was Jos Buttler and Chris Gayle show and in Indian premier league overseas player played an important role throughout every season of IPL. Both teams having an Indian skipper. Skipper Ajinkiya Rahane won the toss and choose to field and so Punjab opener Chris Gayle and Rahul come to the crease to open the innings. Unfortunately, Rahul was out in the first over of Dhaval Kulkarni. Now the pressure once again comes to middle order as Punjab not able to win a last six matches against Rajasthan. Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal played a defensive cricket till the 10th over and Mayank was caught while hitting a boundary near the bound line. Sarfaraz Khan and Chris Gayle played an 84 runs partnership for 3rd wicket which helped Punjab team to cross 150 runs. Chris Gayle back to the pavilion after playing a knock of 79 runs in just 47 balls. In his innings, he hit 8 boundaries and 4 sixes throughout his innings. With the help of both this player Punjab had 184 runs on a board on a flat pitch, which is little difficult to chase down the target. When Rajasthan Royals come to chase a target at that time they want good start from their openers and they do it. For the first wicket ajinkiya rahane and Jos Buttler had a 68 runs partnership and on the bowling of Ashwin, rahane was clean bowled. In the 13th over of second innings when Sanju Samson was on the crease and on non-striker end it was Buttler at that one incident happen and butter was out. Ashwin was the man who was bowling and he sees that Buttler was outside the crease and he runs out him without throwing the ball. With this activity of Ashwin, drama happens on the match and umpire came between to separate them. with the ICC rule player is given out if a bowler does an action. But here no action was happening and umpire given him out. By the way, wicket starts collapsing as they get a good start and they can't able to win the match. Ben Stokes was out on the second ball by hitting six in the first ball. with the help of Chris Gayle innings, he was the player of the match. Punjab fans happy due to this performance as they were not able to qualify for the playoff in the previous season of Indian premier league.
