Jofra Archer bowled smartly, often softening the batsmen with the quick deliveries, and then using the slower deliveries to pick up wickets.

However, after two tight overs, Ashwin produced the breakthrough with a carrom ball in the 12th over when he cleaned up Samson, who looked to play a sweep shot. He came back to choke Rajasthan's chase in the middle overs by taking the wickets of Sanju Samson (27 off 21b; 2x4) and Rahul Tripathi (50 off 45b 4X4 0X6). Stuart Binny (33 off 11b; 2x4, 3x6) injected some drama towards the end but it was too late by then.

KL Rahul (335) and Chris Gayle (322) are KXIP's top two run-getters this season, with Mayank Agarwal coming a distant third. Agarwal mixed being busy with aggression; he hit a boundary and two sweet sixes straight down the ground, and dominated the 29-run partnership with Rahul. He made 26 of 12 balls and was claimed by RR's New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi as Punjab slipped to 67 for two. Miller was the last-minute replacement for Moises Henriques who suffered an unfortunate ankle injury just before the toss.

In the 14th over, Rahul and Miller exploded after bringing up the hundred for KXIP. The duo amassed 19 runs off Sodhi's over with Rahul smoking a massive six over deep square leg and Miller thumping one over long-off. Miller too was sent packing early in the 20th over by Kulkarni.

Rahul was then picked up by medium pacer Jaidev Unadkat in the 18th over with the opener hitting straight to Archer at point. Buttler wasn't around to face the Ashwins through the middle overs, however, because debutant Arshdeep Singh had already dismissed him at the start of the fifth over, thanks to an outstanding catch from wicketkeeper Nicholas Pooran.
