Royals Still alive after beating Kings XI


Rajasthan Royals 158 for 8 (Buttler 82, Tye 4-34, Mujeeb 2-21) beat Kings XI Punjab 143 for 7 (KL Rahul 95*, Gowtham 2-12, Sodhi 1-14) by 15 runs

Rajasthan Royals kept their tournament alive with an astute defence of 158 engineered by spinners K Gowtham and Ish Sodhi, who took a combined 3 for 25 in seven overs even as KL Rahul made a skillful unbeaten 95. Only one other Kings XI Punjab batsman got into double-figures on a pitch where the only other 30-plus score came from Royals opener Jos Buttler, whose 82 was his his fifth half-century in six of his last T20 innings as opener.
