Mayank’s century in vain as Rajasthan pull off highest run chase
Rajasthan Royals chased down a massive target of 224 runs against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to register the highest-ever run chase in the Indian Premier League (IPL) history. Rajasthan Royals won the match by four wickets. Mayank Agarwal’s scored a century but it was not enough for KXIP to secure a win as Rajasthan Royals chased down the target in the last over.
Chasing a massive target of 224 runs, Rajasthan Royals got off to a poor start as Jos Buttler (4) gave away his wicket in the third over of the innings. Steve Smith was then joined by Sanju Samson on the field and the duo played brilliantly.
As the team was chasing a huge target, both the batsmen played with an attacking mindset. After eight overs, Rajasthan Royals were playing at 92/1. However, in the next over, Smith (50) gave away an easy catch to Mohammed Shami off James Neesham’s delivery.
