Earlier, Evin Lewis (36) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (49) had gotten Rajasthan Royals off to a brisk start. The team surpassed 50 in just 5 overs. Once they were dismissed, Liam Livingstone (25) and Mahipal Lomror (43) took up the boundary-scoring duties. But RR kept losing wickets at regular intervals and a mini-collapse at the end meant they could not get past 200.

The Punjab Kings bowler bowled well throughout the innings and his figures of 5/32 were richly deserved.

Punjab Kings needs 186 runs to win from 20 overs.
