Rajasthan Royals sent social media into a spin during an epic Indian Premier League encounter against Kings XI Punjab in which the RR prevailed against the odds.
We saw something truly special in the Indian Premier League on Sunday evening as Rajasthan Royals chase 224 runs - the highest successful run chase in tournament history to beat Kings XI Punjab by four wickets.
It was a contest of fightbacks between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals, between Sanju Samson and Mayank Agarwal but RR went onto register their second win.
Sanju Samson slammed a brilliant 42-ball 85 but it was Rahul Tewatia's unbelievable innings of 31-ball 53 that helped Rajasthan chase down a record total of 224. Mayank Agarwal's maiden IPL century goes in vain.
The win sent twitter into a meltdown and here’s the best of it.
Rahul Tewatia the hero
