  • Right then, that is all we have from the first game of this Super Saturday. The second game is already underway where Kolkata is taking on Lucknow. So switch tabs and enjoy that game. Cheers!
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his brilliant knock of 68 off 41 balls!
  • Punjab just did not start well with the ball! Most of their bowlers had an off day. Especially, Sandeep Sharma and Rabada who just were not at their best. Rishi Dhawan and Arshdeep Singh did a good job but there was not enough support from the others and in the end, they taste yet another defeat.
  • The openers got them off to a flier before Jos Buttler fell. Sanju Samson also followed soon but Yashasvi Jaiswal played brilliantly. He and Devdutt Padikkal put up a really good stand which would have settled the nerves after the fall of Samson. Padikkal was happy to play second fiddle whereas Jaiswal took the attack to the bowlers. He scored a fine half ton but his wicket gave Punjab hope. However, Shimron Hetmyer and Padikkal played sensibly and took their side over the line nicely. A well-calculated chase.
  • Rajasthan get back to winning ways and they do so in style. Chasing down 190 against this Punjab attack on this wicket was never going to be easy but they have done so brilliantly.

    Rahul Chahar to Shimron Hetmyer, That's it! Victory for Rajasthan! A full ball on middle. Shimron Hetmyer hits it aerially but just short of long on for a single and takes his team to an important win here. Rajasthan win by 6 wickets!

    Rahul Chahar to Shimron Hetmyer, SIX! Shimron Hetmyer lands a killer blow! A fuller ball on middle. Shimron Hetmyer gets under it and tonks it over long on for a maximum.

  • 19.1
    Rahul Chahar to Shimron Hetmyer, WIDE! Ohh...not the start Punjab needed! Chahar delivers this down the leg side. Shimron Hetmyer looks to sweep it away but misses. 7 needed now.
  • END OF OVER 19 | 3 Runs & 1 Wkt | RR 182/4
  • Who will bowl the last then? He has 7 to defend and the skipper has given the ball to Chahar. This is a gamble but will it come off? 
  • 18.6
    Arshdeep Singh to Riyan Parag, Dot ball! Top job from Arshdeep Singh! Nails another yorker on middle and leg from 'round the wicket. Parag looks to push it away but misses. The ball hits his pads but it is going down leg. 8 needed now from 6 balls!
  • 18.5
    Arshdeep Singh to Devdutt Padikkal, OUT! CAUGHT! Wow, is there life left in this game still? 8 needed now from 7 balls! What an over this has been from the young Arshdeep Singh! It is a low full toss, outside off. Devdutt Padikkal looks to hit it away hard. However, he gets no timing and hits it straight to Mayank Agarwal at covers. The skipper makes no mistake and takes the catch to keep his team in the game.
  • 18.4
    Arshdeep Singh to Devdutt Padikkal, This guy is simply outstanding! A perfect yorker again, outside off. Devdutt Padikkal manages to dig it out to covers.

    Arshdeep Singh to Shimron Hetmyer, Good over so far by Singh, just 3 singles! Nails a perfect yorker, outside off. Shimron Hetmyer just manages it to push it towards covers and they go for a quick single. The fielder there has a shy at the batter's end but misses.

    Kagiso Rabada to Devdutt Padikkal, FOUR! Boundary to end the over and 16 runs from this very important over! A shorter delivery on middle. Devdutt Padikkal clips it behind square on the leg side towards deep backward square leg fence for a boundary. Just 11 needed now from 12 balls!
  • 17.5

  • 17.3
    Kagiso Rabada to Shimron Hetmyer, NOT OUT! Almost a wicket but in the end a dot ball! A short delivery, around leg by Rabada. Shimron Hetmyer looks to pull but misses. The keeper takes the catch and they appeal for a caught behind. The umpire though is not interested and Punjab take a review. The replays roll in and the UltraEdge shows no bat involved. So Shimron Hetmyer will continue.
  • 17.2
    Kagiso Rabada to Devdutt Padikkal, On a length, around leg. Devdutt Padikkal works it to deep square leg for a single. Can Rabada get a wicket in this over?
  • 17.1
    Kagiso Rabada to Devdutt Padikkal, FOUR! Big boundary this and much-needed one for Devdutt Padikkal! A short ball, around off. Devdutt Padikkal hangs back and pulls it towards deep mid-wicket for a boundary. Finally shows the intent that is required.
