KXIP looked very comfortable putting up such a high score on the board. In the chase, RR lost their opener Jos Buttler early but Sanju Samson and Steve Smith took over a massive partnership to bring them back.

Right after scoring a half century Steve Smith was caught by Mohammed Shami off James Neesham. The RR all-rounder Rahul Tewatia came in next, he started at a very slow rate with just 1 run in balls but eventually picked up pace. He stunned everyone who was criticizing him for a slow start when he smashed 5 sixes during Sheldon Cottrell in the 18th over.

Here's a look at some reactions from the cricketing world to Tewatia's performance.

The massive batting by Tewatia and his fellow top-order batsmen led the Rajasthan Royals to a deserving victory against the Kings XI Punjab in Dubai.

This surprise by the young cricketer made the twitter fans go crazy on the platform with multiple emotions and reactions.
