Latest Cricket News: The match between Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings in Dubai on Tuesday was pretty dramatic. The RR batsmen started things off with some powerful batting in the early half of their innings. On a strong batting wicket, though, some outstanding death bowling by Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Shami restricted them to a total of 185.
Sanju Samson’s side needed some early wickets to come back into the game, and they had a few chances but failed to take any of them. On one hand, the Punjab Kings were outstanding on the field, making some spectacular catches. The Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, had a very different day in the fielding department, as the ball refused to stay in their hands.
In Dubai, KL Rahul had a lucky day
KL Coming into this match, Rahul was the man in form, and removing him would have given Rajasthan Royals a huge lift. Early in the innings, he hammered a ball right into the hands of Evin Lewis, but the West Indies player was unable to hold on to the catch.
One does not often have the chance to dismiss Rahul so early, but the right-handed batsman mistimed a drive off Chris Morris as the ball flew up in the air, giving Rajasthan Royals another chance. Riyan Parag was able to get beneath the ball, but the catch was dropped yet again!
In a remarkable turn of events, Rahul played another shot into the fielder’s hands, but this time it was Chetan Sakariya who squandered the opportunity. The captain of PBKS escaped three chances in the space of only 19 deliveries, and the crowd had no idea what was going on on the pitch.
Take a look at the reactions:

As it turned out, KL Rahul ultimately ran out of luck and was removed for 49 as Rajasthan Royals’ Kartik Tyagi finally took one catch.
