KXIP are now at the bottom of the points table. Overwhelmed by the victory over RCB, KXIP seized the moment to publicise a clever pun troll on RCB on Twitter. Nonetheless, his contribution helped his team bag two points, only their second win in eight matches and their first since September 24.

Rajasthan Royals: Steve Smith (Captain), Jos Buttler (Wicketkeeper), Sanju Samson, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, David Miller, Ankit Rajpoot, Mahipal Lomror, Manan Vohra, Mayank Markande, Shreyas Gopal, Varun Aaron, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi, Akash Singh, Oshane Thomas, Andrew Tye, Shashank Singh, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Anirudha Joshi, Tom Curran and Anuj Rawat. They won by 97 runs in their first clash against RCB. Nicholas Pooran came out to bat on the last ball of the innings with only 1 run to win and Pooran finally smashed a six off the final ball to give rejoice to all the KXIP supporters. Last three balls, one run. Chris Morris and Isuru Udana palyed some brilliant shots in the last two overs to post 171 in 20 overs. "It is wonderful to see him get runs", he added. KL Rahul was joined by the much-awaited Chris Gayle at the crease, both stitched a good partnership. He celebrated his half-century in style with an upside down sticker reading "The Boss" on his bat, until he walked off the field after getting run-out with just one run left to win. The 29-year-old scored 45 off 25 balls, providing a flying start to his side.

With big-hitter Gayle departing off the penultimate ball, Pooran walked in to hit the winning six.
