The 13th season of the Indian Premier League 2020 saw a shower of runs during the match between Rajasthan Royals and King XI Punjab on Sunday(RRvKXIP). The Punjab team, batting first, scored 223 runs, losing 2 wickets in 20 overs, thanks to the century of Mayank Agarwal.
The Royals team, chasing the same runs, achieved a major target by losing 6 wickets in 19.3 overs. Kings XI Punjab also had to face every chance of making such a big score. And Rajasthan has done the match in their name, let’s know that from where the royals have done the match and that Punjab has lost the match with 5 big turning points.
First of all, Rahul Teotia hit 30 sixes in the same over against Punjab, scoring 30 runs and reversed the match. The Royals needed 51 runs in the last 3 overs. Tewatia played a 53-run match-winning inning on 31 balls.
He hit 7 sixes in this innings. Teotia changed the entire map in the 18th over of Kotrell. The same second-biggest point, Joffra Archer’s 19th over, hitting 2 sixes, also completed the remaining brush. Scored 13 not out during his innings with just three balls.
Archer hit two consecutive sixes in the right over and brought the match to the Rajasthan Royals. The third biggest plus point was the partnership between Smith and Sanju Samson for Rajasthan. The Royals had to chase a big shot and both batsmen scored all around the field and did not let the run rate rise.
Butler, playing the first match of IPL 2020, could not do anything special. After that, Samson and Smith hit the bowler. Punjab bowlers lost their biggest bowlers. The Punjab batsmen put up a mountain-like score but the bowler made them a small target.
The same Kotrell could not complete even 4 overs of his account after every bowler from Punjab was beaten fiercely. Cottrell bowled only 3 overs and took 52 runs with 1 wicket. The fifth biggest reason is the excessive confidence of King XI Punjab. Punjab had set such a big goal which was not easy to chase.
Can someone please share with me what exactly this gentleman Samson’s daily diet is..? https://t.co/0jLnFKfYtU

But the Rajasthan Royals had to break the record, and then Samson and Smith showed off the batting. And has played a very important role in the victory of his team. Punjab captain Rahul did not change his strategy much due to the big goal and he had to suffer its brunt. Punjab lost the match during the 18th over and 19 overs.
