Question in detailKings XI Punjab Vs Rising Pune Supergiant, match No. 4: Steven Smith-led RPS gets off to a good start winning the last-over thriller in their very first match. Two sixes in the last three balls to finish the things off! That's what T20 cricket is about. Smith takes a bow with unbeaten 84 off just 54 deliveries. Ajinkya Rahane receives the plaudits for a sizzling 34-ball 60 opening the innings. Imran Tahir, who was once ousted, made most of the chance given to him in absence of injured Ravichandran Ashwin. He bounced back from auction snub. With 3 curial wickets at an economy of 7, Tahir proved to be a welcome addition to RPS's spin attack.
With Ajinkye Rahane in the top order, Steven Smith in the middle and Dhoni in the lower-middle order, Supergiant packs a punch this IPL season. Other than this, they have Usman Khawaja and Faf du Plessis in their index to leave any opposition scared. Supergiant can become the winner of KXIP Vs RPS, 4th match on the back of their powerful batting line-up.
