Stuart Binny is the new man in. And guess what, PK has two wickets in his final over. It was a similar delivery that got rid of Dravid and this time Gilly takes an even better catch, once again diving to his right! Binny is caught behind! Wicket maiden for Kumar!

====================================================================================

Over 19 || Score 124/10

The second one is a slower one and Praveen shimmies down the track, goes over the bowler’s head for another boundary! The third one is a full-toss and Kumar leaves that alone to the keeper. The fourth one is a full-toss again, Praveen doesn’t connect and he ran for a bye, was left stranded and Samson’s direct hit dismisses Praveen Kumar! So Kumar departs after a crucial innings. Faulkner follows it with a bouncer and Awana ducks under it, the ball takes a top edge and goes straight to the keeper!

So the Kings XI Punjab have been bowled out for 124!

P Awana c Samson b Faulkner 0 (1b)

AC Gilchrist c Trivedi b Sreesanth 0 (2b)

====================================================================================

Over 1 || Score 1/0

Mandeep Singh and Gilchrist to open for Punjab, Ajit Chandila will bowl the first over for Rajasthan. Excellent over to begin with, just one single from it.

====================================================================================

TOSS: Rajasthan have won the toss and they have decided to bowl first.

Kings XI Punjab is the only team that has played just two matches in IPL 6, and they would want to move up in the rankings table as they take on Rajasthan Royals.

Punjab have an excellent bowling attack, including Ryan Harris, Parwinder Awana and Praveen Kumar who have the potential to dismantle any batting line-up. Their batting has been a bit of concern and skipper Adam Gilchrist is under pressure to deliver a big knock. David Hussey played a superb knock in the previous match against Chennai Super Kings and the team would want him to continue batting in the same rhythm.

Openers have done well for the Rajasthan Royals as both Rahane and Dravid have got their side to decent starts in the last few matches. While Dravid has done more than what was expected from him, Rahane hasn’t been able to perform the way he did in last year’s IPL. He has been dismissed after scoring 20s and the 30s regularly in the tournament and its high time he scores a big one for his side. The bowlers have done well for the Royals however Sreesanth’s has been expensive at times, something which would be worrying the team management.
