In the game played between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, the experienced campaigner Gautam Gambhir came back to form by essaying some fine shots off Rajasthan’s bowlers. He played even lofted strokes to keep the scorecard ticking. Gambhir was severe on Rajat Bhatia’s medium pace bowling.  He reached his 21st half-century in IPL with a fine stroke that raced to the boundary boards. Uthappa too has looked in good touch and both erected a solid platform for KKR. However, Gambhir and Uthappa getting out has opened the window for KKR to make a comeback into the game. Shane Watson landed another blow by getting Andre Russell’s wicket.

 

Earlier, Gambhir and Uthappa played fine shots on both sides of the wicket. They used the pace off the ball on a slow wicket to play shots square of the wicket. They even used their feet well to both spinners and pacers in the opposition camp. Rajasthan need some wickets quickly.
