Deepak Hooda lost his wicket against the run of play against Kings XI Punjab in the third match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015. Nonetheless his contribution of 30 runs from 15 balls in the given conditions was a very handsome knock. Rajasthan Royals would have wished for him to have stayed till the end but will now rest their hopes in the finishing abilities of James Faulkner.

Right from the onset, the pacers made merry on the track after KXIP skipper George Bailey decided to field first on a green top at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) stadium in Pune. Rajasthan Royals will hope to at least get to 150, especially after the poor start, which saw them being reduced to 75 for five. All but one wicket so far have been picked by fast bowlers. Akshar Patel was the only non-pacer to get a wicket.
