19.6 Jaydev Unadkat to Lokesh Rahul

FOUR! Jaydev Unadkat to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement reverse sweeping, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. KL Rahul ends on 95 not out, and was a complete lone wolf in the Kings XI batting attempt. Another reverse scoop to finish off the game, it's a magnificent shot yet again.Rajasthan Royals get a much needed win. Jos Buttler did the damage for them with the bat. Things seemed to get harder as the game went on. The pitch got slower and scoring became more difficult. The credit still goes to the Royals, who have capped off an impressive win. They go up to sixth in the table, and Kings XI remain third. Tomorrow's IPL action has KKR up against Mumbai. Join us for that.
