Chasing 153 to win, opener KL Rahul played a magnificent knock of unbeaten 84 runs to power Kings XI Punjab to a clinical six-wicket victory against Rajasthan Royals in match 38 of IPL 2018 at Holkar Stadium in Indore.
Earlier, young off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman led an impressive bowling display from Kings XI Punjab to restrict struggling Rajasthan Royals to a modest 152 for nine.
Mujeeb (3/27) struck in the first two deliveries of the 15th over, first removing dangerous -looking Jos Buttler and then Jofra Archer to stand in with a chance of registering a hat-trick. But it didn't come as he bowled a wide delivery in the next ball.
Besides Mujeeb, Andrew Tye (2/24), Axar Patel (1/21), skipper Ravichandran Ashwin (1/30) and Ankit Rajpoot (1/37) were the other wicket-takers for Kings XI.
Opening the batting, Buttler scored 51 off 39 balls with the help of seven boundaries to anchor Rajasthan innings but just when it was time for him to accelerate he nicked a Mujeeb delivery to KL Rahul behind the stumps.
