FOUR! Murugan Ashwin to Tom Curran. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Tom Curran finishes off in style! This is the highest successful run chase in IPL history. Rajasthan Royals won the match by four wickets. The game was under the control for Kings XI until the 17th over but Cottrell then leaked 30 in the 18th over and cost his team huge damage. Rahul Tewatia was the game-changer for RR today who changed the entire course of the match in just one over. At one stage Rahul Tewatia was 17 off 23, by the end of his innings he scored 53 from 31. Sanju Samson top-scored with 85. For Kings XI Mohammed Shami picked up three wickets. Sheldon Cottrell, James Neesham, and Murugan Ashwin picked up a wicket each. Sanju Samson is adjudged as the Man of the Match for his excellent batting performance. Join us for the next game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians live from Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Until then cheers.
