Rajasthan Royals met Kings XI Punjab for the 9th Match of the ongoing season of IPL. Rajasthan Royals won the toss and chose to bowl first. The decision proved very costly for the Royals who had to face the spectacular opening pair of the Punjab Side. Two Indians openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal opened the innings. Both the players were coming on the back off decent forms and played an instrumental role in the last two games for the Punjab side.

The batsman carried on to their brilliant form and played their shots all around the wicket. The skipper KL Rahul who shattered several records in the last game after scoring a spectacular 133 carried on from where he left in the last game. However, to everyone’s surprise, he was overshadowed by Mayank Agarwal. The 29-year old right-hander batsman started smashing from the first ball itself and started a storm of shots from the first ball itself. The Karnataka batsman has recently attracted a lot of praise due to his sensible batting. Known for his conservative approach, Agarwal shocked the spectators due to the wide array of shots that he played.
The hero of the last match raced to his half-century in just 27 balls and slammed all the bowlers all around the park.

Remarkable century from Mayank Agarwal. His first in the IPL, from just 45 balls, an innings that has taken Kings XI to a very, very dominant position.
