The 38th match of the 11th season of IPL is to be played between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals at Holkar Stadium in Indore. Prior to this match Preity Zinta, co-owner of Kings XI Punjab team, joined hands in front of God in the temple. Punjab have 4 points in 8 matches, with 5 points and 3 losses in 8 matches. The Kings XI Punjab team had to face defeat in their last two matches against Mumbai and Hyderabad. He has a good chance to secure his place in the playoff by defeating Rajasthan. Preeti is always ahead in encouraging the players, she is in Indore for the strength of her team.
In the last two matches, Punjab's team did not look like it was in the early matches of the tournament. Preeti does not want to leave any team to return her team to victory. Meanwhile, he reached the Khajrana Ganesh temple in Indore and prayed. Because of no identity, he covered his mouth with a sieve. Eventually, people present in the temple recognized him. Preeti also forbids the people to present there for no noise and for photo or video. Still, some people quietly photographed their photos.
Kings XI Punjab bagged their first win at their second home venue of Indore on Sunday as they defeated Rajasthan Royals by 6 wickets at the Holkar Cricket Stadium. Mujeeb Ur Rahman took 3 wickets in his 4 over spell and Lokesh Rahul scored a masterful half-century in the team’s cause.
Opting to field first on a pitch where the chasing team had won each and every game, captain Ravichandran Ashwin got the Kings off to an ideal start. He picked up the wicket of D’Arcy Short in his very first over to land a big blow on the Royals.
Rajasthan skipper Ajinkya Rahane’s efforts to consolidate the innings weren’t allowed any success either as Chris Gayle pouched a brilliant catch diving forward at backward point off the bowling of Axar Patel.
The Royals made another recovery effort from there through Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes but that too ran into the guile of mystery spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman. After Mayank Agarwal pulled off a ripper to dismiss Ben Stokes, Mujeeb first dismissed Buttler caught behind and then cleaned up Jofra Archer in his last over to finish with his best IPL figures so far of 4-0-27-3.
