In the match 66 of IPL 2023 season (4), Rajasthan Royals now keep a playoff chances faintly alive after a four-wicket victory vs Punjab Kings, that took place in Dharamshala on Friday. Due to delayed performance by Shimron Hetmyer who scored 46 off 28 balls, chasing the target total of 188 runs was much slower. Despite this RR achieved 189 at 4 wickets and two balls to spare in their chase innings, while both Devdutt Padikkal (51) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (50) registered their half-centuries.

A nail biter at Dharamsala going the visitor's way. did not have the best of starts losing 4 wickets for just 50 runs within 7 overs but the middle order packed a punch to take RR by surprise. Sam Curran and Jitesh Sharma formed a solid partnership of 64 from 44 to keep PBKS in the game. The onslaught began with Shahrukh Khan who took the attack to the opposition smashing 41 at a strike rate of 178 taking PBKS to a challenging total of 187. Adam Zampa's spell conceded at only 6.50 r.p.o restricting PBKS scoring to some extent. In response, RR once again lost Buttler Eaerly who registered his fifth duck of the season but the two Indian Southpaws Jaiswal and Padikkal kept going at a brisk rate. Hetmyer coming in at number 5 smacked 3 maximums and 4 fours which helped RR catch up to the asking rate. Cameos from Parag and Jurel helped seal the game in the last over with 2 balls to spare. is still alive in the league and will have to depend on a few other results in order to make it to the playoffs.


" We quite a few wickets in the first six and that put us on the back foot in the first innings but Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma, and Shahrukh Khan's knocks got us back in the match. Our bowling was good in patches but the fielding was not that good. The dropped chances cost us the match. I feel 200 would have been a good total on this wicket. Speaking about the season, We could have done better in all departments. Sometimes the batters were clicking and sometimes the bowling unit was doing well. We failed to put up those performances together. But it's a young side, so we have learned a lot of things this season. "

Shikhar Dhawan, Skipper

" We thought with the way Shimron Hetmyer was going we will win it by 18.5. We have a quality team and it is dissapointing to see where we are on the points table. I have been talking about Yashasvi Jaiswal almost every game now. He has shown immense levels of maturity. It feels as if he has played 100 T20 Internationals. Every match we feel Trent will pick a wicket for us in the first over. We were under pressure in the last few games. "

Sanju Samson, Captain

" Coming into the season I was feeling confident. But it didn't pan out the way I thought. Every game as a cricketer you want to win it for your team. To be honest, it has been a strange season. I have been batting everywhere in the batting order. I need to learn and adapt to batting at every position. At the start of the season, I thought I might not make it. But really happy to receive this award tonight. "
