Player of the Match

Abu-Dhabi – Ben Stokes produced a Player of the Match display to keep Rajasthan Royals chances of progressing in the Dream11 IPL alive. Following on from his 107no, Ben again scored runs and, importantly, took wickets in the win over Kings XI Punjab. 

Ben took 2-32 as Kings XI posted 185-4. Ben then hit a 26 ball 50 (6 fours, 3 sixes) helping to set up a 7 wicket victory for the Royals. Ben’s intent was clear, taking 16 runs from the Power Play. This innings follows on the back of his 107no vs. Mumbai Indians earlier in the week.

Steve Smith (31) and Jos Buttler (22) saw the Royals over the line, giving Rajasthan a slight outside chance of progressing in the 2020 IPL
