The Run Chase

IPL never disappoints anyone as it assures entertainment for 2 continuous months in each and every game. Such was the game played between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals where Rajasthan Royals pulled off the highest successful run chase of 224 runs with 3 balls to spare. 

The match to remember:

The 2 most amazing moments of the match were Nicholas Pooran’s fielding effort that snatched a possible six from Sanju Samson and the fierce hitting by Rahul Tewatia to take Rajasthan Royals from a situation where victory looked impossible to a situation where they required just 2 runs from the last over.

Rahul Tewatia:

He started his innings a bit too slowly for which he was constantly being criticized by the commentators as he scored just 17 from 24 deliveries.

But he shifted to top gear in the 18th over and smashed Cottrell for 5 sixes in that over and changed the complexion of the game.

In continuation, he hit 6 sixes in 7 balls and reached to 53 off 31 balls after which his wicket was picked up by Mohammad Shami but it was too late and the damage was already done as Rajasthan just required 2 of the last over and won the match with 3 balls remaining. 

His effort was applauded all over twitter. A person named Rohit Arya tweeted that he started like Dhoni and finished it like Yuvraj. ( )
