Rajasthan Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane was all praise for his team’s bowling unit after they played a major role in holding Kings XI Punjab batting to sneak in a 15-run win
“Bowling unit was fantastic. Credit to our bowlers, especially in the powerplay. That stage was crucial, getting 2-3 initial wickets. And Ish Sodhi, fantastic “ Rahane said during the post match presentation.
“Our intention was to pick wickets, and keeping an attacking field will help us. Gowtham bowled really well, and then the Ashwin wicket as well. Overall, bowling unit was fantastic,” he went on to add.
Batting first, Rajasthan Royals managed only 158 for 8 with Jos Buttler again starring with 82. But, they kept Punjab to 143 despite KL Rahul's unbeaten 95. “Really happy, the way we played. I thought 160 was good, but wicket was difficult. Thanks to Jos that we got a good start. It was important that we enjoy this victory and move forward,” said the captain.
