Kings XI Punjab will aim to rectify their problems with the ball and get back to winning ways when they host Rajasthan Royals in Mohali on Tuesday. OUT: It looks all but over for Rajasthan.

One can't really understand why R Ashwin didn't come on to bowl earlier. The Englishman has had mixed returns so far this season but RR are often at their best when he’s playing well so expect him to do well on a pitch that supports strokeplay. These two are cruising at the moment and haven't been troubled by any batsman till now. KXIP move to 182/6, but they'll have to bowl well to defend it. Now finally he has in the eight over. Mujeeb comes back into the attack and after Buttler's wicket, the run-rate has come down a bit. And he needs to bag wickets straight up. He has 10 First Class hundreds to his name, but if RR have to win this game, Rahane has to take the lead. KXIP – They have a full squad to choose from and have been prone to making a few changes on occasion but could well stick to the same XI. Australian Ashton Turner’s IPL debut ended with a first-ball naught, while Jofra Archer was sent back by Shami as RR slumped to 133 for five in 17.1 overs. They were unable to defend 197 against MI as Kieron Pollard's 31-ball 83 consigned them to a loss. This is exactly the time of the match when Ashwin normally strikes. Ashwin puts it on the off side, Samson goes for the sweep but the ball skids past him and hits the off stump. 4.6: A Singh to R Tripathi, 4 runs, 51/1 #KXIPvRR #VIVOIPL, @josbuttler make sure you are not in a hurry to leave the crease tonight.. #RRvKXIP @StarSportsIndia. RR are 68/1. Two wickets and three runs from it. Pooran takes a brilliant catch as the batsman departs for 23. Stunned silence around the ground as a very good innings comes to an end. Nevertheless it has been exceptional effort by Binny. After a wicket on the first ball, Binny gets a four and six off successive ball to keep hopes alive for RR. Shami comes into the attack. After 15 overs it's 122/2. This is an inspired performance from the KXIP captain. The home side won the toss and opted to bowl first. Could light up the World Cup. Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi keepings things floating for the Royals. RR are 38/1. Kl Rahul has taken another blinder. (b - 8, w - 1, no - 1, lb - 2, penalty - 0), 1-38 (Chris Gayle, 5.4 ov), 2-67 (Mayank Agarwal, 8.4 ov), 3-152 (Lokesh Rahul, 17.1 ov), 4-163 (Nicholas Pooran, 18.3 ov), 5-164 (Mandeep Singh, 19 ov), 6-164 (David Miller, 19.1 ov), (b - 0, w - 9, no - 0, lb - 1, penalty - 0), 1-38 (Jos Buttler, 4.1 ov), 2-97 (Sanju Samson, 11.4 ov), 3-127 (Rahul Tripathi, 16 ov), 4-131 (Ashton Turner, 16.3 ov), 5-133 (Jofra Archer, 17.1 ov), 6-148 (Ajinkya Rahane, 18.3 ov), 7-160 (Shreyas Gopal, 19.1 ov), Ashton Turner makes his IPL debut for Rajasthan and Arshdeep Singh for Punjab, Strategic Time-out: Punjab 63/1 in 8.0 overs, Strategic Time-out: Punjab 97/2 in 13.0 overs, 3rd wkt Partnership: 53 off 33 balls between L Rahul (29) and D Miller (23), L Rahul T20: 51 runs in 45 balls (3x4) (2x6), Innings Break: Punjab 182/6 in 20.0 overs, Mandatory Power play (1-6): Rajasthan 54/1, Strategic Time-out: Rajasthan 73/1 in 8.0 overs, 2nd wkt Partnership: 50 off 34 balls between R Tripathi (27) and S Samson (22), Strategic Time-out: Rajasthan 117/2 in 14.0 overs. It's 15/0 after 2 overs. KL Rahul smashes a short delivery from Sodhi about 20 rows into the stands. Archer's 19th over has been devastating for KXIP. He holes out at long off and Ashwin punches the air. That has brought down the equation to 23 runs from 6 balls. RR's good work in the death overs have been undone somewhat by Ashwin's belligerence. He gets to 20 as RR are 27/0 in 2.4 overs. A good start for the Royals and Buttler has powered it. Bowling against two really good agressive openers. He is castled for 27. RR need 66 to win from 36 balls. A fast delivery from Shami sees Gopal play one in the air. RR: Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Ashton Turner, Ish Sodhi, Oshane Thomas, Liam Livingstone, Ajinkya Rahane (C), Sanju Samson (WK), Shubham Ranjane, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Sudhesan Midhun, Jaydev Unadkat, Prashant Chopra, Mahipal Lomror, Aryaman Birla, Riyan Parag, Dhawal Kulkarni, Krishnappa Gowtham, Varun Aaron, Shashank Singh, Manan Vohra, Rahul Tripathi. KXIP WINS: Next up is a yorker by Shami and the batsman can't get it away. Ashwin should open the bowling for me !! KXIP have moved into three figures and this is a good partnership building between Rahul and David Miller. OUT: Arshdeep Singh comes for the penultimate over. It was déjà vu against RCB as a poor showing with the ball saw RCB chase down the target of 173 with four balls to spare. Follow all the live cricket score and latest updates from the game between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Rajasthan Royals (RR): Unadkat gets the key wicket of Rahul on the first ball of the over and he is ecstatic. Hit hits the ball straight to long off. Jos Buttler was dismissed early but Rahul Tripathi, who opened the innings today, kept the chase on track alongwith Sanju Samson. Rahul Tripathi is Jos Buttler's opening partner today, not Ajinkya Rahane. It's 160/6 in 19 overs. He lets the penultimate ball fly over midwicket an then scoops the last and KXIP set up a total of 182/6. The left-arm pacer starts well and doesn't give room to batsmen to freeze arms. A yorker outside off that Rahul squirts fine and it travels striaght to short third man. And he gets Rahane on the third. He almost got stumped on 49. Batting first, KXIP set up a target of 52 off 47 balls while Ashwin scored 17 of four balls before taking two wickets in the RR innings. And Buttler dances down the track and gets a big six. Here is another four for Buttler. It’s important to not lose too many wickets in the next 3 overs . In 2019, the first game between the two sides was played at the RR home, Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. KXIP are 161/3 with 2 overs left. Excellent bowling by Ashwin as RR are now 97/2. Gayle still has the ability to turn it on when needed and KXIP will hope he continues this run of form. M Ashwin continues. Great display in the field by KXIP. That's a brilliant start by the Englishman. rr vs kxip live score, rr vs kxip live scorecard today, rr vs kxip lineup The first match of the Dream11 IPL 2020 Schedule is going to be played between Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings.

After Rahane's departure he hits Arshdeep through midwicket and down the ground for two sixes. RR – Ben Stokes missed their previous game with an injury and his availability is in doubt, meaning Liam Livingstone could continue in the playing XI. Rajasthan come into this match with some momentum, having beaten Mumbai by four wickets but are still only in seventh in the league table having registered just two wins so far in the tournament. Mujeeb into the attack for the second over. He delivers a clean over now. OUT: Another one bites the dust as Shami has his man here. The R Ashwin-led side are now fifth in the league standings after losing to both the Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in successive matches. And the second innings gets underway. But Binny is off strike, Shami is bowling the last over. Jos Buttler – Buttler's 43-ball 89 was the cornerstone of Rajasthan's chase against Mumbai.
