Rahul steers Kings XI over the line against Rajasthan

Royals' play-off push has been severely dented by three straight defeats but promoting Buttler into the opening berth has looked a positive move in the last two games, with the 27-year-old striking seven fours against Kings XI - three off Ankit Rajpoot in the second over - en route to a 37-ball fifty. On Tuesday, it was clear why. Three changes for the hosts as Mahipal Lomror, Stuart Binny and Ish Sodhi come in.

There was, however, an attempt to bat as deep as possible.

Following the wicket, Rajasthan lost track as Mujeeb removed Stokes (12) and Buttler in the 13th and 15th overs respectively. The overseas players are also in good touch for Kings XI Punjab. Five of the six Powerplay overs were bowled by the seamers, and the major differences in scoring rates between the early overs and the middle phase were down to this. Buttler came dancing down the track to send the second delivery into orbit, but the wily Mujeeb sent in the googly and Rahul was quick to take off the bails as all Buttler could connect with was air. Stoinis is caught by Gowtham, Andrew Tye comes to the crease.

"It wasn't easy to bat on here, but we needed 170-175,"' Rajasthan captain Ajinkya Rahane said after the match.

Karun Nair, who stitched a crucial partnership with Rahul the other night, failed badly in Jaipur and was dismissed by Jofra Archer in the very next over.

By the time the Powerplay was done, however, scoring became extremely hard for Rahul and Akshdeep Nath.

3- R Ashwin's squad scored only 39 runs in the first six overs, it is the lowest score by KXIP in IPL 2018 in the powerplay. The major worry for them continues to be the fact that they still don't know which batsman to play at which spot. Even then, he was practically unscoreable against.

And Ben Stokes' (12) frustrating tournament continued when his momentum was halted, with Mayank Agarwal catching just before the rope and successfully offloading to Manoj Tiwary as he fell backwards. He hit boundaries on either side of the keeper towards the end, including two reverse-sweeps off Unadkat, and jumped from 66 to 95 in the last two overs. Marcus Stoinis (11) was the next highest scorer as none of the other batsmen managed to reach double figures thanks to an excellent bowling performance from Rajasthan.
