So that is it from this unbelievable game of cricket. Rajasthan have maintained their 100 percent start to the season in a terrific fashion. Punjab, on the other hand, will be heartbroken to lose another close game. Indian T20 League action continues on Monday, 28th September as the two heavyweights of Indian cricket go head to head. Virat Kohli's Bangalore take on Rohit Sharma's defending champions, Mumbai. That game will begin at 1800 local (1400 GMT). We hope to see you for that one. Till then, goodbye and take care!
For his magnificent 85 off just 42 balls, Sanju Samson pips Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tewatia as the Player of the Match. He starts by saying that he was hitting it well for the last one year. Adds that he was confident and played his natural game. Mentions he was trying so many things but nothing was coming off.
Steven Smith, Rajasthan skipper, says he is happy with the team's performance. Credits Tewatia who played superbly. Mentions that 33 sixes were hit in the last game which was played here. Smith says that if we had wickets in hand, we would always have a chance. Adds that the hitting we saw in Cottrell's over is what we saw about Tewatia in the nets. Mentions that the bowlers pulled it back in the end otherwise we would have been chasing 250.
Stay tuned for the presentation as in a game with plenty of stars we will find out who will be awarded the Player of the Match.
The man who changed his own fortune and turned from zero to hero with the bat in the same innings, Rahul Tewatia is now caught for a quick chat. He is all smiles and says that halfway through his innings was the worst 20 balls that he has ever played but is happy that after that he turned it around. Shares that he was hitting the ball well in the nets and believed in his abilities. Adds that he was not hitting the ball cleanly and the dugout was curious as he hits them really well. Feels that it was a matter of getting one over the rope and he got his confidence. Informs that the coach sent him to target the spinners but he failed to do that but is glad that he targeted the other bowlers successfully in the end.
KL Rahul, Punjab skipper, says that is T20 cricket and we have witnessed games like this. Adds that Rajasthan batted well under pressure. Mentions that they had given up but in the end Rajasthan batted well to chase this. Rahul also says that the ground was small and any total does not matter here. Mentions they will look to do better in the next game.
Earlier in the evening, after being put to bat, Punjab's opener Mayank Agarwal put in a masterclass with his maiden centuy in the league. His 106 along with 69 from Rahul and an 8-ball 25 from Pooran took Punjab to a mammoth score of 223 which looked just about enough heading into the break but it did not prove to be the case. Just like Punjab's bowler later in the evening it was more of the same for Rajasthan's bowler as well as they also were punished in this small dimensional ground and the flat batting track. Rajpoot was the pick of the bowler for them picking up 1/39 from his 4.
Well, it was a terrible day for the bowlers and an even worse one for Punjab bowlers. They were abysmal with their lines and length and were rightfully punished. Apart from Bishnoi none of the frontline bowlers will be happy with their effort. Shami got 3 but he was expensive going away for 53 in his 4. Neesham went for 40, Maxwell gave away 29 from his 3 overs. Cottrell did not even bowl his full 4 overs as he was spanked all over the park by Tewatia in his final over in which he was hit for 5 maximums that will hurt him for a few days. All in all it was a miserable bowling performance from Punjab.
Chasing a humongous total of 224, Rajasthan got off to a poor start as they lost their star Jos Buttler early in the innings. Steven Smith and Sanju Samson continued from where they left off. The duo added 81 runs between them with the skipper getting to his fifty but falling prey. Rajasthan threw a surprise as they sent Rahul Tewatia ahead of Robin Uthappa. Sanju Samson continued his outlandish form and kept Rajasthan in the chase. He though was not getting any support from the other end as Rahul Tewatia was struggling to find the middle of the bat. Samson's 85 though kept the glimmer of hope alive but once he departed it looked like the hopes of a Rajasthan win also went away with him. Tewatia though turned the tide and boy did he turn the tie away in some manner. From stuttering  at 8 off 19 balls, Tewatia unleashed the punster inside of him and it was Cottrell who brunt the heat. He hit 5 sixes off Cottrell's over and finished the game with 53 off 31 balls. That along with Archer's cameo and Tom Curran's one ball boundary helped Rajasthan create history.
WOW! What a game of cricket we have witnessed here! A record breaking chase and it was a game not for the faint hearted. Rajasthan have done it again. They surprised the mighty Chennai in the last game and tonight they have chased down the highest ever total chasd in this league. Take a bow, Steven Smith. Take a bow, Sanju Samson but just give a big salute to Rahul Tewatia. He might have had a lot of Rajasthan's fans heads scratching in anger in the middle but towards the end he has become their superhero, their messiah, their latest darling!

Bowling change! 63 needed off 24 and pace is back on. As Mohammed Shami is back on!

Strategic Time-Out! Tewatia's 5 from 13 has put the pressure on Rajasthan. Punjab have managed to pull things back well here. They though will be aware of the might of Sanju Samson who has been given a life and is going strong. 102 needed off 42 now and Tewatia needs to find a way to get bat on ball.

Bishnoi runs to that side and dives. He gets both his hands to it but fails to bask it in. The batters take two and that brings up the fifty for Sanju Samson.

Strategic Time-Out! Rajasthan are off to a solid start to the chase here. They have lost Buttler but the pair of Smith and Samson are once again taking the charge for their side. At the moment, Rajasthan are slightly ahead of the required rate but they cannot rest on their laurel as they still need to go just over 11 rpo. 144 still needed off 78. Punjab need to find a way to break this stand. Can they find a solution after the break?

Sheldon Cottrell To Jos Buttler OUT!
OUT! Caught! The big wicket of Buttler and he has gone without hurting Punjab much. Excellent catch from Sarfaraz to get rid of the England wicket-keeper batsman. Back of a length ball on off and middle, Buttler looks to pull but does so uppishly. Sarfaraz at short mid-wicket dives in front and takes a very sharp catch inches above the ground. The trademark Cottrell salute is out and he is enjoying a great start to his debut season.

Not out and Rahul has decided not to review it either. It is a gem of a delivery from Shami. He hits the deck hard around off. Buttler comes down the track and looks to play but Buttler is taken by surprise as the ball shapes away from him and he looks to leave. The ball just about misses the outside edge and goes to Rahul behind. He appeals but the umpire is unmoved. The Punjab skipper opts not to take the review. Good call as there was no bat involved.

Edgy start for Rajasthan and Buttler but they are off the mark. Good length ball around off but it comes back in to Buttler. He looks to punch on the off side but gets an inside edge which goes away from the stumps and behind. Single taken. First run for Buttler this season.
