019.619.6: Kartik Tyagi to Fabian Allen, RAJASTHAN HAVE DONE IT! What a superb over from Tyagi! He is the reason that Rajasthan have gone past the finish line. They have snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Punjab just needed 4 off the final over but they have failed to win this game. A pinpoint yorker, outside off, Allen tries to hit this one out but misses. RAJASTHAN WIN BY 2 RUNS! 
019.519.5: Kartik Tyagi to Deepak Hooda, OUT! CAUGHT! WOW! What a game this is turning out to be! Another wicket and Rajasthan are in the driving seat now. On a length, wider outside off again, Deepak Hooda reaches out and looks to play this to the off side but the ball takes the outside edge and Sanju Samson is not going to drop this. 3 more needed on the last ball! 
019.419.4: Kartik Tyagi to Deepak Hooda, DOT! 3 needed in 2 now! Wider, fuller, outside off, Deepak Hooda moves across and looks to play at this but misses. Valuable dot. 
019.319.3: Kartik Tyagi to Nicholas Pooran, OUT! CAUGHT! Is there a twist in the game? Nicholas Pooran loses his wicket at the very end of the innings and he fails to close the game out for his side. A fuller ball, slanting across the southpaw, Pooran just looks to guide this to the off side but only manages a thin outside edge, which is gobbled up by Sanju Samson behind the sticks. 3 more needed in 3 balls! 
119.219.2: Kartik Tyagi to Aiden Markram, Just one! Fuller this time, around off, Aiden Markram swings across the line but only manages an inside edge to deep square leg for one. 3 needed in 4 balls!

118.518.5: Mustafizur Rahman to Nicholas Pooran, Fullish, on off, jammed out through mid on for one. A really good penultimate over so far from the Fizz. Can he end it well?
118.418.4: Mustafizur Rahman to Aiden Markram, Great stop by Chetan Sakariya! Saved a certain boundary there. A touch short, slower in pace again, on middle, Aiden Markram moves to the leg side and looks to cut this one away. He only manages an outside edge, which goes to the right of the keeper. Samson flies, but fails to grab it. It deflects behind and Chetan Sakariya dives to his left at short third man to stop the racing ball. Only a single. 
118.318.3: Mustafizur Rahman to Nicholas Pooran, Fuller again, outside off, Nicholas Pooran looks to dig it out but only manages an outside edge down to third man. The fielder there is standing very straight and hence only a single.

012.612.6: Rahul Tewatia to Mayank Agarwal, OUT! Caught! Both the set batsmen dismissed and Rajasthan have an opening now. Rahul Tewatia gives this one a good flight and serves it on a fuller length outside off, Mayank Agarwal probably was looking for an inside-out shot over extra cover but all he manages is a thick outside edge on his shot.

69.49.3: Chris Morris to Mayank Agarwal, SIX! FIFTY FOR MAYANK AGARWAL! What a knock this has been from him so far. He started off slow, but he has picked up the pace and gets to his fifty in 34 balls. He will know though that the job is not done and will want to hang around for longer. Again, Morris strays and serves a length delivery down the leg side, easily clipped over fine leg by Agarwal for his second biggie of the over.

15.55.5: Mustafizur Rahman to KL Rahul, DROPPED! KL Rahul is a cat, by the looks of it, since he seems to have 9 lives tonight. Another sitter has been dropped and this time, it is Chetan Sakariya who makes a meal of this.

Rajasthan Royals First innings
019.619.6: Arshdeep Singh to Kartik Tyagi, OUT! Arshdeep has five in the match! Top effort from him. A yorker around off at 132.1 kph, Kartik Tyagi has a big swing of his bat at it but he fails to dig it out and the stumps behind are destroyed. Rajasthan are all out on the final ball for 185!
019.519.5: Arshdeep Singh to Chetan Sakariya, OUT! Caught and bowled! Another wicket for Arshdeep, his fourth of the evening. This is his best bowling effort in the League. Slower one, a touch short and angling in around off, Chetan Sakariya turns inside the crease to heave it over the leg side but only manages a top edge. Arshdeep Singh runs across to his left and completes the catch easily.
419.419.4: Arshdeep Singh to Chetan Sakariya, FOUR! That will help Rajasthan's total a bit. Fuller and around off, Chetan Sakariya steps back to make room and drills his drive through covers for a boundary. 
119.319.3: Arshdeep Singh to Kartik Tyagi, Fullish and down the leg side, could have been a wide but Kartik clips it down to fine leg for a run.
119.219.2: Arshdeep Singh to Chetan Sakariya, A full toss outside off, Arshdeep gets away with it. Chetan Sakariya goes hard at it and manages only to push it off the inner half to long on. A single.

19 Overs | Runs : 179/8 | Run rate : 9.42
018.618.6: Mohammed Shami to Chetan Sakariya, Very full and on middle, Chetan Sakariya drives it back to the bowler. What a spell from Shami, especially at the death! Only 3 runs from the penultimate over along with the big wicket of Chris Morris.
018.518.5: Mohammed Shami to Chris Morris, OUT! Morris falls as well. Rajasthan have collapsed at the death. Fuller and around off, angling in, Morris aims to tower it into the stands at long on but gets more height than distance.  Aiden Markram gets underneath it in the deep and takes the skier safely. Anil Kumble is a happy man in the dugout. This is a great comeback from Punjab.
118.418.4: Mohammed Shami to Chetan Sakariya, Back of a length, around leg, Chetan Sakariya stands back and tucks it down to fine leg for one.
118.318.3: Mohammed Shami to Chris Morris, Serves it full and outside off, Morris drives it firmly down to long off, just a run.

018.118.1: Mohammed Shami to Rahul Tewatia, OUT! Stumps shattered! Fuller and straighter, at 138 kph, Rahul Tewatia hangs inside the crease and tries to whip it across the line. But he gets a thick inside edge onto the pads and the ball ricochets onto the stumps. Another big hitter is back in the hut for Rajasthan. They are losing the plot in the end overs.
18 Overs | Runs : 175/7 | Run rate : 9.72
217.817.6: Arshdeep Singh to Chris Morris, Another brace for Morris. Still, a great over from Arshdeep. Slower one, short and wide outside off, Morris drags his attempted pull down to wide long on. 11 runs from the last two overs, Punjab have pulled things back smartly.
217.717.5: Arshdeep Singh to Chris Morris, Around off and middle, a full toss, Morris swings his bat across the line and sends it down to wide long on for a couple of runs.
017.617.4: Arshdeep Singh to Chris Morris, A fabulous over so far from Singh. Delivers it full and around off, Morris drives it through the line but finds covers.
117.517.3: Arshdeep Singh to Rahul Tewatia, Yorker and angling in around off, Rahul bunts it down to mid off and steals a single.
017.417.2: Arshdeep Singh to Rahul Tewatia, Aims for a yorker but it turns out to be a low full toss outside off, Rahul Tewatia goes hard at it but fails to middle his shot. It comes off the toe end and rolls to mid off.
017.317.2: Arshdeep Singh to Rahul Tewatia, Wide! Very full and wide outside off, again flirting with the tramline. The batsman leaves it and it's wided.
017.217.1: Arshdeep Singh to Mahipal Lomror, OUT! Mahipal Lomror holes out and this is a body blow to Rajasthan at this stage. Arshdeep delivers it with full pace, around off at 134 clicks, Lomror tries to hammer it over long on but his shot lacks the desired distance. Yet another catch safely pouched by Aiden Markram in the deep. End of an entertaining knock from Mahipal! 
017.117.1: Arshdeep Singh to Mahipal Lomror, Wide! That's a tight call from the umpire. Arshdeep begins with a very full ball and stays outside off, it's flirting with the tramline. Lomror allows it through.
17 Overs | Runs : 169/5 | Run rate : 9.94
116.616.6: Mohammed Shami to Mahipal Lomror, A yorker around off by Shami, this one is from 'round the wicket, Mahipal squeezes it out towards cover-point. A single is taken. Fantastic over by Shami, just 4 runs and a wicket from it.
116.516.5: Mohammed Shami to Rahul Tewatia, Shami switches to over the wicket and delivers it very full again, around off, Rahul digs it out down to mid off for one.

016.316.3: Mohammed Shami to Riyan Parag, OUT! Parag holes out! Not a bad result for Rajasthan with a few power-hitters waiting in the wings. Fullish and around off, Riyan Parag once again uses his wrists and attempts to whip it across the line. But he ends up mistiming his shot to long on where Aiden Markram takes a good catch over his head. Punjab would look to keep chipping away at the wickets to restrict Rajasthan's charge.
216.216.2: Mohammed Shami to Riyan Parag, That's very wristy from Riyan. Attempts for a helicopter shot to this very full ball but this one rolls all along the ground to long on. Two runs taken.
016.116.1: Mohammed Shami to Riyan Parag, A dot ball to begin the 17th over. Shami serves it on a length close to off, Riyan defends it from the crease to the off side.
16 Overs | Runs : 164/4 | Run rate : 10.25
415.615.6: Deepak Hooda to Mahipal Lomror, FOUR! Finds the gap and the fence. 24 coming off this over and Rajasthan have stepped into the death overs in style. Very full from Hooda, wide outside off, Mahipal Lomror delays his shot a bit and squeezes it past the diving point fielder for a boundary. Lomror moves to 42 off just 15 balls.
215.515.5: Deepak Hooda to Mahipal Lomror, Another two. Too full in length and outside off, Mahipal Lomror drills his drive through extra cover. Smart running between the wickets.
215.415.4: Deepak Hooda to Mahipal Lomror, A high full toss outside off, Mahipal Lomror runs down the track and slaps it over covers for a couple of runs. Not given a no ball because the batsman was down the track.
415.315.3: Deepak Hooda to Mahipal Lomror, FOUR! Mahipal Lomror is on fire! Unstoppable. Hooda is feeling the pressure. Dishes out a full toss outside off, Mahipal shows no mercy and whacks it over extra cover.
615.215.2: Deepak Hooda to Mahipal Lomror, SIX! Hooda is being taken to the cleaners here. He fires it flat and short around off, Mahipal Lomror advances down the track and spanks it over mid-wicket.
615.115.1: Deepak Hooda to Mahipal Lomror, SIX! The spinners are under attack. Fuller and outside off, there is ample width for Lomror to free his arms and he dispatches it over the bowler's head for a maximum.

014.214.2: Harpreet Brar to Yashasvi Jaiswal, OUT! CAUGHT! Oh, no! Agonizingly short of his half-century and Jaiswal cannot believe this. You could see that he went into his shell, looking for his fifty and he became conscious of the same, which proved to be his undoing. This is fired across the batsman at 96 kph, landing fuller around off, and skidding away. Yashasvi Jaiswal steps out and looks to flick, but closes the face of the bat early. The leading edge is induced and it goes to the left of Mayank Agarwal at covers, who moves swiftly and pouches this with a dive. This is an important wicket at this stage of the innings. 
014.114.1: Harpreet Brar to Yashasvi Jaiswal, Around off, shortish, played late to the point fielder.

Fuller, tossed up this time, on middle, Yashasvi Jaiswal gets low and slog-sweeps it towards the deep mid-wicket region. Agarwal runs forward, dives, but the ball lands ahead of him and he collects it on the bounce. One taken. 
13 Overs | Runs : 122/3 | Run rate : 9.38

12 Overs | Runs : 116/3 | Run rate : 9.67
011.711.6: Arshdeep Singh to Mahipal Lomror, Around off, pushed to the cover region. End of an eventful over.
011.611.5: Arshdeep Singh to Liam Livingstone, OUT! TAKEN! That is a stunning catch from Fabian Allen and Livingstone's inning has come to a sad end. He was looking very promising, but, a top catch means the end of the road for him in this game, with the blade. Singh bowls another slower ball, this is bowled around off, on a length, Livingstone waits for it and then smacks this to the deep mid-wicket region. Allen, in the deep, runs to his right, keeps his eyes on the ball, and dives to pouch this. The third umpire has a look and the replays show that it is a clean catch. Arshdeep Singh also hands a send-off to Liam Livingstone. Fiery stuff!
011.511.5: Arshdeep Singh to Liam Livingstone, WIDE. Singh serves a full toss way outside off, Liam steps out and swings but misses. Wide signalled. 
611.411.4: Arshdeep Singh to Liam Livingstone, SIX! WHOAAAA! That was BIG! The sound of the bat connecting with the ball let us all know how much of a clean strike that was! Around off, on a length too, Liam Livingstone smokes this one all the way over deep mid-wicket this time. Cracked.

09.69.6: Ishan Porel to Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shortish and close to off, Yashasvi Jaiswal taps it down from the back foot to point. End of Ishan Porel's spell, not too impressive. Rajasthan are 94/2 at the halfway mark.
49.59.5: Ishan Porel to Yashasvi Jaiswal, FOUR! Top shot! Stamping his authority. Ishan Porel serves it on a length and around off, Jaiswal stays back inside the crease and cracks it through extra cover for a boundary.
19.49.4: Ishan Porel to Liam Livingstone, Livingstone tries to be adventurous but fails to middle his shot. On a length around middle and leg, Liam gets down and across for the paddle scoop but it takes the inner half and rolls to the keeper. KL Rahul fails to collect cleanly and the short fine leg fielder attacks the ball. He has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. One run added to the total.

68.38.3: Adil Rashid to Yashasvi Jaiswal, SIX! Dismissed! Rashid has struggled with his length so far. Serves a long hop on middle, Yashasvi Jaiswal picks the length in a flash, immediately drops his weight on the back foot and pulls it massively over mid-wicket.

07.47.4: Ishan Porel to Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sharp delivery, shortish and around leg, Yashasvi Jaiswal is hurried up into his shot and fails to pull. He is hit on the box and the ball deflects to square leg. They cross for a leg bye. Yashasvi Jaiswal is in some pain.

17.27.2: Ishan Porel to Liam Livingstone, Fuller and on middle, Livingstone uses his feet and clips it down to deep square leg for a run. Opens his account.
07.17.1: Ishan Porel to Sanju Samson, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Ishan Porel has redeemed himself with a wicket. A fantastic bowling change from KL Rahul and it's an excellent catch too by him. Not a wicket-taking delivery, short and wide outside off, Samson tries to slam it over point but there is some extra bounce and it takes the outside edge. The ball flies to the right of KL who times his jump to perfection to pluck it with one hand. Big wicket.

66.46.4: Adil Rashid to Yashasvi Jaiswal, SIX! The plan is clear, they will attack the leggie. Full and floated, around off, Yashasvi Jaiswal latches onto it and towers it handsomely over long off. When he is on song, he is a privilege to watch.

05.35.3: Arshdeep Singh to Evin Lewis, OUT! Gone! Arshdeep strikes and has a big smile on his face. He serves it very full and around off, slower in pace and that has deceived the batsman.

15.25.2: Arshdeep Singh to Yashasvi Jaiswal, Pitches it up and around off, Jaiswal goes hard at it, doesn't time it too well but still manages to clear the infield at covers. A single is taken. Two was on but Yashasvi Jaiswal had slipped while turning for the second run.

43.23.2: Ishan Porel to Evin Lewis, FOUR! Slightly streaky but Lewis will not care. A touch short, slanting away outside off, Evin Lewis looks to pump this through covers, but the ball takes the outer half of the blade and flies to the third man fence.
