  • 19.5ARajpoot to DKulkarni

    FOUR! A boundary but it won't be making a difference. Full and around off, this is stroked through covers and the ball races away to the fence.
  • 19.2ARajpoot to KGowtham

    OUT! There goes Rajasthan's last hope! Another top delivery, a yorker, Gowtham looks to get under it but fails to do so. It goes off the bottom half of his bat towards mid off where the fielder, Shami, runs in and takes it in the second attempt. Two-in-two for Rajpoot. He is on a hat-trick.
  • 19.1ARajpoot to JUnadkat

    OUT! A collision but the catch has been taken! Pooran though has hurt himself as he is down on the ground. A bumper, too quick for Unadkat. He looks to pull but gets a top edge onto his helmet. The ball lobs beside the pitch. Both, the keeper and the bowler go for it. No one calls for it. In the end, it is Rajpoot who takes it but then dashes into the keeper. The good thing for Rajasthan is that Gowtham has crossed over.
  • 18.5MShami to JofraArcher

    OUT! RUN OUT! Archer is out of here! Another top nut, a yorker and Archer fails to jam it out properly. He though is off for a single but Gowtham is not interested. The keeper has a shy at his end but misses. Shami though collects and since both the batters are stranded in the middle of the wicket, Shami has ample time to jog towards the stumps at the keeper's end and whip the bails off. JA is the one who has to walk back though as the batters never crossed. Into the tail now are Punjab.
  • 17.7UrRahman to RTripathi

    OUT! Rajasthan have lost the plot completely! A full toss from Mujeeb, on middle, Tripathi this time tries to attempt what Stokes failed to do - clear long on. Fails miserably and is caught by Rahul in the deep. 12 runs and four wickets in the last two overs have made Punjab the favourites now.
  • 17.5UrRahman to RTripathi

    Wide! Another quicker one, fired wide outside off, Rahul flashed and missed.
  • 17.3UrRahman to BenStokes

    OUT! Mujeeb gets the revenge! The wheels are coming off for Rajasthan. The Afghan keeps his composure and delivers it in the line of the stumps. Ben Stokes hops back to make space and tries to clear long on this time. He gets more height than distance behind his shot and Nair (sub) takes the skier safely. 28 needed off 15 balls. We're heading to a thrilling finish!
  • 17.2UrRahman to BenStokes

    SIX! This one goes rocketing over the cow corner. Flatter and fuller on off, Stokes kneels and launches it over the fence for a biggie.
  • 16.6SamCurran to SSamson

    OUT! Another one bites the dust! Two in the over and now Rajasthan have two new batsmen at the crease. Just what the visitors wanted and not what the hosts would have wanted. Another slower ball which is outside off. Samson looks to loft it over covers but the timing is not there. Like Smith he too gets a lot of height on it. Ashwin at covers backtracks and takes a very good catch. The game has once again turned. What an over by Curran to finish his spell, 4 runs and two wickets from it. He ends with figures of 4-0-52-2.
  • 16.4SamCurran to SSmith

    OUT! In the air... taken! What a catch that is. They say catches win you matches and will this win it for Punjab? Smith who was really hitting the ball well is walking back. Curran who has not been at his best today is bowling a game-changing over here. The slower ball does the trick for him. It is full and wide outside off. Smith reaches out for it and lofts it over extra cover. He gets a lot of height on this one. However, it is tailing away from Rahul. He makes a lot of ground to his left and with a dive takes it. The Punjab players are pumped up.
