Shimron Hetmyer takes over the team
Shimron Hetmyer’s 59 not out and a 68-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Ravichandran Ashwin (28) helped Rajasthan Royals make 165 for six against Lucknow Super Giants after faltering in the middle overs. Hetmyer hit six sixes and a four in his unbeaten 36-ball knock, taking full advantage of a simple catch by Krunal Pandya off Krishnappa Gautam. Rajasthan team added 50 runs in the last three overs.
Captain Sanju Samson (13) hit fours against Bishnoi and Avesh but in an attempt to increase the run rate, Holder’s ball was caught lbw in the ninth over. In the next over, Krishnappa Gautam (two wickets for 30 runs) gave a double blow to the Rajasthan team. He bowled Rasi Van der Dusen (04) after sending Padikkal, who had so far held one end, to the pavilion by catching the holder. Padikkal scored the same number of runs in 29 balls with the help of four fours. Rajasthan team came under pressure after losing three wickets in 11 balls and seven runs.
