After Kings XI Punjab lost the wicket of Virender Sehwag in their game against Rajasthan Royals in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, Manan Vohra, the young and promising top-order batsman took over by collecting runs. He was particularly severe on captain, Shane Watson’s bowling. Vohra flicked him for six over mid wicket for a six and followed it up with another boundary. Shaun Marsh, the left-hander joined the fun with a classy off drive.

 

Earlier, Rajasthan won the toss and elected to bowl in their crucial game against table toppers, Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2014. Virender Sehwag and Manan Vohra opened the batting for Punjab. It was Vikramjeet Malik who opened the bowling for Rajasthan. Sehwag though, showed his class clouting Malik through the off-side for a boundary.

 

Sehwag continued on his merry way by clouting again through backward point for a boundary. He ended the over with another six off Malik’s bowling. A fine start by Punjab  for sure. Skipper Shane Watson bowled the second over of the game. Manan Vohra joined the fun by smashing a boundary as well, off Watson’s bowling.

 

It made Watson think, and he bowled a fine bouncer to keep the batsmen at bay. He also took a heavy toll on James Faulkner’s bowling by smashing him for a boundary.  But Faulkner came back to take Sehwag’s wicket, caught by Malik. A much needed wicket for Rajasthan.
