Rajasthan Royals have made a strong start to their innings. After being put into batting first, they have made 91-2 in just 10 overs. The kind of start they have got, a score of 180 is on the cards for Rajasthan. Anything less than that and Rajasthan would feel they have under scored.
After the first over of the Rajasthan’s innings went for 5 runs, Bumrah bowled the second over. He conceded 6 runs in it as Buttler hit a four in the over. Eight runs came in the third over as Yashasvi Jaiswal hit a boundary in this over, which was his first one.
The score of Rajasthan after 4 overs was 20-0. Then, Rahul Chahar came to bowl the fifth over and was immediately taken for runs by Buttler. He hit the leg spinner for a four and a six, as 13 runs came in the over.
Yashasvi Jaiswal did the same to Nathan Coulter Nile as he too hit a four and a six to the bowler, to take 13 runs in the over.
At the end of powerplay, Rajasthan score was 47-0.
Even after the end of fielding restrictions, the openers did not curb their hitting instincts. Jayant Yadav was slogged by Buttler over mid wicket for a huge six. This over fetched 11 runs for Rajasthan.
Then, Rahul Chahar struck in the next over. On the third ball of the over, a long hop was mercilessly pulled over square leg for a massive six. However, Chahar had the last laugh. The next ball was a flighted delivery as Buttler raced down the track to hit it for a big shot. But, he got beaten by the dip of the delivery as was easily stumped by the wicket keeper.
The same thing was repeated in the next over of Chahar. This time the batsman was Yashasvi Jaiswal. On the third ball of the over, the left hander smashed Chahar over cow corner for a flat six. But then again, Chahar had his revenge.
On the fifth ball of the same over, the leg spinner bowled a googly. The south paw was clearly beaten by the variation as he tried to flick it in the leg side, but the ball turned. Hence, it took the edge and flew straight to the man at short cover for an easy catch.
