Rajasthan Royals’ batsmen never got going, while chasing down a target of 180 runs against Kings XI Punjab in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. They finally ended up with 163 runs for the loss of eight wickets on the board. Sanju Samson compiled a knock of 30 runs for Rajasthan, but even he struggled for timing and placement.

 

For Punjab, Rishi Dhawan took two wickets in two balls and that too of key players in the opposition ranks; Shane Watson and Ajinkya Rahane. It was interesting to see that Brad Hodge, the experienced campaigner came to bat so late down the order. He did play well and made 31, but he had too much to do. It has to be remembered that Rajasthan needed  to win this game to qualify for playoffs. They are still in  the reckoning to qualify for playoffs though.
