Hindustan Times – A couple of hours before the Rajasthan Royals-Kolkata Knight Riders game began, Jaipur was hit by a severe sand storm on Sunday.

Summary

  • A couple of hours before the Rajasthan Royals-Kolkata Knight Riders game began, Jaipur was hit by a severe sand storm on Sunday.
  • It was a strange, aimless kind of an innings where both Jos Buttler and Steve Smith were batting in a mode opposite to the frenetic approach one would normally associate with the T20 format.
  • KKR were 140/2 after 13.5 overs, winning by eight wickets, after openers Chris Lynn (50) and Sunil Narine (47) all but finished the job.
  • Not only did he remove the dangerous-looking Jos Buttler for 37, he bowled a terrific last over with Steve Smith batting on 67, conceding just seven runs.
