KL Rahul‘s unbeaten 71 trumped David Warner‘s unbeaten 70 as Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) overcame the middle-order wobble to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by six wickets in the 22nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium’s IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Monday.

In the 151-run chase, KXIP lost Chris Gayle early. However, the Karnataka duo of Rahul and Mayank Agarwal put up a 114-run partnership for the second wicket before Sandeep Sharma got Mayank out for 55 in the 18th over. (IPL 2019, KXIP vs SRH: AS IT HAPPENED)

While there was a middle-order wobble following Mayank’s dismissal as SRH scalped three quick wickets, Rahul made sure KXIP cross the finish line with six wickets in hand and a ball to spare. The win also helped KXIP to continue their good run of form at their homeground.
