Kings XI Punjab VS Rajasthan Royals IPL LIVE SCORE and LATEST UPDATES

  • And that brings us to the end of the 32nd match of IPL 2019. While Rajasthan Royals's playoff hopes are virtually over now, having suffered their sixth defeat in eight games, Kings XI Punjab have reignited their hopes with a fine victory, moving ahead of Kolkata Knight Riders with their fifth win in nine games. Ravi Ashwin's side, though, have to be consistent in the remaining games if they are to make it to the last four. 

    We'll be back tomorrow evening, when Sunrisers Hyderabad host table toppers Chennai Super Kings at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Do join us in our coverage of Match 33. For now, it's a goodbye from us.

    KXIP vs RR Expert’s Voice

    So RR miss out on yet another win, and I say miss out because their selections, while improved, are still not in line with the rest of the tournament. Does Rahane fit into the team if he's not opening? Should Turner have batted ahead of him? Desperation has forced them to drop both Smith and Stokes, and now they have to be ruthless and take one more tough call. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    Ajinkya Rahane, RR captain: I think 182 on the wicket was quite chaseable. We started really well. I thought our bowling unit bowled really well. The last over was crucial. In a chase like this, you cannot lose too many wickets. Discussion was to take the game deep. I thought he (Tripathi) started really well. We should learn from our mistakes. You've got to take your chances. Jofra's four overs were really critical. 

  • After 20 overs,Rajasthan Royals 170/7 ( Stuart Binny 33 , Jaydev Unadkat 0)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Shami bowls out the final over, and starts off by getting rid of Gopal off the first delivery. Dot off the second, with Binny coming back for a second off the third delivery. Another yorker to Binny off the fourth, with Binny only getting another double. Two to Binny off the fifth, with Agarwal putting in a dive near wide long off, with the Karnataka batsman collecting a boundary off the last ball. 


    Kings XI Punjab win by 12 runs and move to the fourth spot in the points table!

    FOUR! Binny heaves the ball off the last delivery of the innings towards the wide long off fence, where Agarwal puts in a dive in vain, althought it does little to help Rajasthan Royals' case. RR 170/7

    Kings XI Punjab win by 12 runs!

    KXIP vs RR Expert’s Voice 

    Should Turner have batted ahead of Rahane? Should Tripathi have been more aggressive after he crossed 35? Lots of questions, but all moot, as a cluster of wickets has derailed this chase. Yet another episode of how to lose a game that you should have won. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    OUT! Gopal departs for golden duck, getting caught by Agarwal at long off while looking to hit Shami down the ground for a maximum! RR 160/7

    Arshdeep is given the responsibility of the crucial penultimate over, and he starts off with a dot. The RR skipper slices the ball towards wide long off off the second delivery, coming back for a second. The RR skipper however, is dismissed off the third ball, getting a thick top-edge and getting caught by Shami at short fine. Binny keeps RR in the hunt with two sixes off the last three balls, ruining what would've been a perfect final over from the debutant. RR need 23 to win off 6 balls.

    Shami's brought back in the 18th over, and he is dismissed off the first delivery, holing out to Rahul at long on. Was hit hard by Archer, but didn't quite get the elevation to put it over the boundary rope. Binny walks out to bat, and gets going right away, collecting a four and a six off his first two balls.

Wide conceded off the third delivery, and is followed by a wicket, that of Turner who is dismissed for a golden duck on IPL debut. Rahane collects a single off the fourth delivery. New batsman Archer gets off the mark with a single off the last delivery of the over. Ashwin signs off with figures of 1/24. RR need 50 to win off 18 balls.

RR need 61 to win off 30 balls. 

  • Snehal Pradhan, freelance cricket writer

    KXIP vs RR Expert’s Voice 

    A new challenge for Rahane, batting in the middle order against a team playing three spinners. Tripathi too has slowed down a bit as he's getting close to his fifty. Who is going to play the blinder for RR? 

  • After 14 overs,Rajasthan Royals 117/2 ( Rahul Tripathi 46 , Ajinkya Rahane (C) 13)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Skipper Ashwin brings Mandeep into the attack in the 14. Fine stop by Mandeep at the non-striker's to restrict Rahane to just a single. Tripathi cuts hard, but only collects a single. Rahane makes room, and lofts the ball down the ground to collect a double off the third. Single off the next two deliveries. Rahane lofts the ball towards deep extra cover for a brace off the last delivery. Eight off the over. RR need 66 to win off 36 balls.

    Samson b R Ashwin 27(21)

    KXIP vs RR Expert’s Voice 

    Tripathi and Samson have kept RR above the RRR. They are both looking very comfortable, using the pace of the spinners. At the halfway mark, they are on track, but like we saw in the first innings, there is a chance of wickets falling in a cluster. 

  • After 11 overs,Rajasthan Royals 93/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 38 , Sanju Samson (W) 24)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Murugan Ashwin bowls from the other end. Single collected off each of the first four deliveries, before Ashwin finishes with a couple of dots. Rajasthan need 90 to win off 54 balls

  • After 10 overs,Rajasthan Royals 89/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 36 , Sanju Samson (W) 22)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    R Ashwin into his second over, and bowls a tidy one, with just four singles coming off it. The current partnership is worth 51, and the two batsmen are fairly well set, with the team very much on course towards chasing the stiff target down. At the halfway mark in their innings, RR need 94 to win off 60 balls. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    Fifty partnership up between Tripathi and Samson, the latter guiding the ball towards short third man for a single to bring up the partnership milestone; RR 88/1

  • After 9 overs,Rajasthan Royals 85/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 34 , Sanju Samson (W) 20)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Shami is introduced for the first time into the attack. Mujeeb, meanwhile, has left the field, and Sam Curran has walked out as the substitute. Good over for the Royals with 12 coming off it, including back-to-back fours to Samson. Meanwhile, the partnership between the two is worth 47 off 29 at the end of the over. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    FOUR! Deft work from Samson, guiding the slower ball from Shami towards third man using soft hands! RR 84/1 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    FOUR! Samson glances a length ball from Shami towards long leg! RR 80/1 

  • After 8 overs,Rajasthan Royals 73/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 31 , Sanju Samson (W) 11)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Skipper Ashwin brings himself into the attack in the eighth over (too bad Buttler isn't around, would've been fun to observe the non-striker's end). Samson tickles the ball towards fine leg, with Shami giving the ball a spirited chase and saving a run for his team. Mujeeb appears to have hurt himself badly at sweeper cover after putting in a dive. Medical staff tend to him after Tripathi collects three off the delivery, with 10 coming off the over. Timeout signalled at the end of the over. 

  • Snehal Pradhan, freelance cricket writer

    KXIP vs RR Expert’s Voice 

    A high tempo Powerplay with the right personnel at the crease, even though RR have lost Buttler. Now the Indian batters have to set the base against the three spinners and hope that Turner can provide a finish. It will particularly be a challenge for Tripathi, who is usually more fluent against pace. 

  • After 7 overs,Rajasthan Royals 63/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 26 , Sanju Samson (W) 6)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Murugan Ashwin is brought into the attack in the seventh over of the innings. Single collected off each delivery of the over barring the fourth, in which Tripathi beats Arshdeep at short third man after a late cut. Nine off the over. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    FOUR! Late cut by Tripathi, beating a diving Arshdeep at short third man! Third boundary to the newly-promoted RR opener. RR 61/1

  • After 6 overs,Rajasthan Royals 54/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 20 , Sanju Samson (W) 3)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Mujeeb continues from the other end. Samson punches the ball down the ground for a single off the second delivery. Tripathi chips the ball towards the same region, the ball landing just short of Rahul. Another single to Samson down the ground off the penultimate delivery. Three singles off the over. Rajasthan reach 54/1 at the end of the powerplay, thanks to some aggressive strokeplay by Buttler and Tripathi. The latter's promotion clearly has worked well for the team so far. 

  • After 5 overs,Rajasthan Royals 51/1 ( Rahul Tripathi 19 , Sanju Samson (W) 1)

    RR IPL Score latest updates


    Arshdeep draws first blood for the Kings XI, bowling a slower one to get Buttler caught near short fine-leg, where Pooran takes a fine catch. Samson joins Tripathi at the crease. Harsh call for wide off the third delivery, with Samson standing well outside off, close to the tramline. Tripathi collects a boundary off the fourth delivery, one that was pitched full and wide. Tripathi then collects a brace off the penultimate ball, before getting another four off the last delivery, this one the result of a fielding lapse by Shami at short third man. Fifty up for the Royals in this over. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    FOUR! Fielding lapse by Shami at short third man allows the ball to roll away to the fence as Tripathi collects his second boundary of the over; RR 51/1

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    FOUR! Wide delivery outside off, and this has been steered over backward point by Tripathi! RR 45/1

  • Snehal Pradhan, freelance cricket writer

    KXIP vs RR Expert’s Voice 

    Finally, Rajasthan using the opening combination that they should have all season. Tripathi hasn't gotten a lot of the strike, but he has shown good intent. Buttler is teeing off as usual, even against spin. It's the kind of total that makes it difficult to take it easy against one bowler. You have to go hard against everyone. 

  • RR IPL Score latest updates

    OUT! Arshdeep Singh collects his first IPL wicket, that of the dangerman Buttler, as Pooran takes a good catch near short fine-leg! RR 38/1

IPL 2019, KXIP vs RR, Today's Match Preview: It will be a battle for survival as fifth-placed Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) take on seventh-placed Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Match 32 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. While Kings still have a chance to make it to the playoffs, Royals' chances hang by a thread. The Ajinkya Rahane-led side have been guilty of conceding matches from winning positions and have only two wins from their seven matches - the last of which came three days back against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium.

Punjab, on the other hand, have lost two of their last three matches. While skipper Ravichandran Ashwin will be delighted with the recent form of his openers — KL Rahul scored a century against Mumbai Indians while Chris Gayle hit an unbeaten 99 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) — he will also be wary of the limitations of his middle order. Punjab will do well to remember that the middle-over slowdown resulted in them finishing 15-20 short of a winning total in both those matches. The onus on batsmen increases manifolds for Punjab given that their frontline pacers Ankit Rajpoot and Andrew Tye have been largely ineffective so far.

Cricketing performances apart, the match will also be interesting for a mini sub-plot involving Ashwin and RR's Jos Buttler. The last time these two sides met, Ashwin hogged headlines after mankading Buttler. Punjab went on to win that match, a result credited in no small measure to Ashwin's act. The controversy might have died down, but the sparks are likely to fly when the two teams take the field tonight.
