IPL 2020 Highlights, RR vs KXIP Match, Full Cricket Score: Rajasthan script amazing comeback to register highest-ever successful chase

23:46 (IST)

That's it from us folks!

That was some match. KXIP did so so well to put a huge total on the board, but Rajasthan Royals, led by the plucky Rahul Tewatia, showed incredible grit and determination to successfully see through the biggest run-chase in IPL history! We could all do with a break after the exhilarating last few hours of action, so here's where we bid you adieu. Do tune in tomorrow though, because we'll be right here, bringing you all the latest updates from Royal Challengers Bangalore's match against the Mumbai Indians. Until then, goodbye and goodnight.

Steve Smith, Rajasthan Royals skipper: 

That was some chase wasn't it? We were lagging a bit there, but then Tewatia, wow, that was a great display. What an amazing game.

It generally gets a bit wetter and skids a bit more in the second innings. I thought we always had a chance, we just had to keep going and not let the required run rate climb too much. It's a small ground and there have been a lot of sixes hit here in the last two times we played here. We always thought we had a chance and we gave ourselves the opportunity to come back.

Sanju Samson is striking the ball really cleanly, all around the ground. He's powerful, he's making the job easier for whoever he's batting with. He's hitting sixes at will right now. It's just going to be about adapting a bit, when we play in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Those grounds will be a bit bigger, but most of the balls he's hitting right now will go out of any ground.

What we've seen from Tewatia in the nets is what he came up with in that huge over, he's been hitting the ball a long way. Obviously it was a bit of a scratchy start, but I actually said to Ronnie, once he gets one the floodgates will open, and that was the case. Sanju told him at one point, run down the wicket and just try to hit it as far as you can. Credit to him, he stuck to it. He did a pretty good job in the end.

You can look at Jofra as well, his first two balls were sixes. I think we've got a good balance of players at the moment, some strong boys who can hit some sixes. It's on a smaller ground, but we'll have to adapt on the other surfaces. I'm really proud of all the boys today, including the bowlers. I think they did a really good job today, it felt like we could be chasing something like 250 at one point. They gave us something to chase and we got over the line. 

23:37 (IST)

Samson: Hitting it well for the last one year. I can see a change in my game, and have played two-three practice games here. I was really fed up of myself for the last one work with things not working out for me. So I decided I have 10 more years left in this wonderful game, and decided to give my everything to this sport. I believe it’s in my gene as my father’s a very powerful man and that’s why I have a lot of strength.

23:37 (IST)

Sanju Samson is the Player of the Match for his 42-ball 85!

Rahul Tewatia: I think that was the worst first 20 balls that I have ever faced. After that, I had belief in myself, because I was hitting the ball very well in the nets. I just took it from there. I was not hitting the ball well initially, and everyone in the dugout looked so serious. I thought to myself, it's time to get going. After the first six, it was all great. The coach told me to hit sixes off the leg-spinner, but unfortunately I couldn't. I did it off the other bowler though.

23:19 (IST)

KL Rahul, Kings XI Punjab skipper: That’s T20 cricket isn’t it. Just a good game of cricket, and we’ve got to come back stronger. Lot of positives to take away.  The game keeps you humble all the time. I honestly thought we had the game in the pocket at one stage. I backed my bowlers to do the job. They’ve done it in the last couple games, and it’s okay to make mistakes in one game early in the tournament, and hope we learn from that. Small ground, the total really doesn’t matter. Sanju played really well.

23:17 (IST)

After 19.3 overs,Rajasthan Royals 222/5 ( Jofra Archer 13 , Tom Curran 4)

And it's all over! What a match, and despite some huge, huge knocks, the unassuming Rahul Tewatia has won millions of hearts with his incredible performance in the eleventh hour. He left it late, but my god did he deliver. His heroics are enough for Tom Curran and Jofra Archer to see it through to the end, and Rajasthan Royals complete the highest run-chase in IPL history.

Riyan Parag is gone! It's a gorgeous delivery from M Ashwin, who takes the bails off with a googly. Is there more drama in this?

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab: And it's all over! What a match, and despite some huge, huge knocks, the unassuming Rahul Tewatia has won millions of hearts with his incredible performance in the eleventh hour. He left it late, but my god did he deliver. His heroics are enough for Tom Curran and Jofra Archer to see it through to the end, and Rajasthan Royals complete the highest run-chase in IPL history.

Preview: Rajasthan Royals (RR) will be looking to continue their winning momentum when they clash with Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Sunday (27 September). The Steve Smith-led side beat last year's runners up Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 16 runs to start their IPL 2020 campaign on a positive note. The fact that RR registered the victory against such a strong IPL team and without the services of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes would have given them a lot of confidence.

Good news for RR is that Jos Buttler, who has completed his quarantine time since coming to UAE from England, will be playing in the match against Punjab. With no Stokes in the team, it is expected Smith who opened against CSK will drop down to No 4 in the batting order, with Yashaswi Jaiswal opening and Sanju Samson at 3.

RR will hope Samson comes good against Punjab as well. He had smashed 74 of just 32 balls, including 9 sixes and 1 four against MS Dhoni's team. With Buttler coming in, the top 3 of RR is filled with fiery batsmen.

On the other hand, Punjab too will be coming into this contest with a lot of confidence after their big win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) two days ago. Led by skipper KL Rahul, who hit an unbeaten 132 off just 69 balls, Punjab had posted a massive 206/3 in their 20 overs, batting first. They came out with goods with the ball in hand as well, dismissing RCB for a mere 109 and sealing the victory by 97 runs.

KXIP have good balance of spin and pace in their playing XI, and they bowled brilliantly as a group against RCB.

Both teams have momentum with them and it will be interesting to see which one of them goes on to win the battle on Sunday.

IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs RR Match, Full Cricket Score: Delhi beat Rajasthan by 13 runs, collect two more points

Delhi Capitals go on topWell, this has been a death bowling masterclass from both teams, but it is the Delhi Capitals who have won this. It was closer than the 13-run margin that the scorecard suggests. DC, by virtue of their sixth win in eight games, are at the top of the points table. DC will be mighty impressed with the extreme pace of Nortje who clocked 155 kmph quite easily and regularly. With Rabada, Ashwin and Axar rounding off their bowling, they look a really difficult team to beat. Shikhar Dhawan's 33-ball 57 was immensely vital as well as it set the platform for Shreyas Iyer, who scored a half century himself. There was no death-over flourish from either team this time though as bowlers came to the party. That's it from us tonight, but do join us for the coverage of RCB vs KXIP tomorrow. Till then, it's a wrap on Firstpost. Stay safe, good night.

Finally, KXIP win the match by 8 wickets! Chahal bowls the final over. No runs from the first two balls. Gayle goes for the big hit in the next one but it just falls short of deep mid-wicket for one run. Another dot and follwed by Gayle's run out. Pooran, under pressure, comes down the track and manages to clear the long-on fielder for a six. Phew!
