Watch: Rahul Tewatia grabs a stunner near the boundary line to dismiss KL Rahul
The skipper of Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) KL Rahul had played a brilliant inning for his team scoring 91 off just 50 balls including seven fours and fives sixes to his name.
However, the all-rounder of Rajasthan Royals Rahul Tewatia grabbed a stunner closer to the boundary line to send the Karnataka batsman back to the dressing room.
But it was not only KL Rahul who dominated the opposition bowlers whereas some important contribution in the middle from Chris Gayle's 40 and Deepa Hooda's 64 off just 28 deliveries helped Punjab Kings to post a mammoth total of 221 runs on the board.

Sanju Samson fired up in the second innings
With the help of skipper KL Rahul, Chris Gayle and Deepak Hooda, Punjab posted a huge total of 221 on their board. Rajasthan Royals opened the innings with Ben Stokes and Mana Vohra.
Ben Stokes had been dismissed for a duck as the English cricketer miss-timed the ball and was grabbed by the bowler Mohammed Shami. Sanju Samson took charge from there and started to respect the bowlers all around the park.
He didn't get good support from the other end as Jos Buttler, Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag have been sent back to the dressing room by Punjab bowlers with the numbers 25, 23 and 25 respectively.
Worth mentioning that the English batsman Jos Buttler and Riyan Parag have looked dangerous during the game before being dismissed by the debutant Jhye Richardson and Mohammed Shami.
In the end, Rajasthan Royals needed 5 from the last ball and was hit straight to the fielder by Sanju Samson. His stunning knock of 119 from 63 balls including 12 boundaries and 7 sixes earned him the Man of the Match award.
Rajasthan Royals will face Delhi Capitals in their next game whereas Punjab Kings will lock horns with the Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in their upcoming game on Friday.
