IPL 2018, KXIP vs RR, Live Cricket Score: Kings XI Punjab (155/4) beat Rajasthan Royals (152/9) by 6 wickets at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore. To chase a modest 153 run target, tremendous batting effort was made by the opener KL.Rahul, scoring 84 off just 54 balls with the help of seven boundaries and three sixes to guide his side home with eight balls to spare. So far in this season, he provided brisk starts to his team and today showed his other side of the game as he anchored this chase and steered Punjab closer to the playoff berth. Rajasthan will be deeply disappointed at the moment as once again they failed to cross the line. Their season is just refusing to take off. It wasn’t a usual dashing performance upfront by Punjab in their innings. In fact, it was a subdued one.

Kings XI’s chase, however, started on a bad note as they lost dangerous Chris Gayle (8) and Mayank Agarwal (2) in successive overs. While Gayle cut Jofra Archer straight to Sanju Samson at a point in the fourth over, Agarwal pulled a short delivery from Ben Stokes to Rahul Tripathi at long leg. Then Rahul and Karun Nair (31) shared a 50-run stand for the third wicket off just 37 balls to stabilize Kings XI’s chase before the latter dragged Anureet Singh’s short delivery back onto his stumps as Kings XI were reduced to 79 for three.
