Mohali, May 9: Kings XI Punjab may have won just five of their eleven games so far, but coach Darren Lehmann feels the team has been doing 80 per cent of things right but luck has often eluded them at crucial junctures.
“We have probably played well, 80 per cent of the time in most games..,” 43-year-old Australian said addressing a news conference on Wednesday (May 8) at the team hotel in Chandigarh.
KXIP, which had its practice session at Sector 16 cricket stadium in Chandigarh on Wednesday, will meet Rajasthan Royals in a crucial encounter here on Thursday (May 9).
Lehmann said they now need to win the remaining five games and make sure they get the remaining 20 per cent of things going right.
Playing on their home turf, KXIP defeated formidable Royal Challengers Bangalore the other night, with young South African import David Miller hitting a sensational 38-ball unbeaten 101 to help his team chase down a stiff target of 191.
Mohali, May 9: Rajasthan Royals almost assured themselves of a play-off berth in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after they defeated Kings XI Punjab by 8 wickets at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium here Thursday.
Chasing a target of 146, Ajinkya Rahane struck a fine unbeaten 59, his second consecutive half-century, and the young Sanju Samson remained not out on 47 to guide Rajasthan Royals to 147 for two with an over to spare.
p>Put in, a 102-run partnership between skipper Adam Gilchrist (42) and his compatriot Shaun Marsh (77) set the foundation of a big total for Kings XI. But they suffered a batting collapse losing five wickets for 41 runs and managed 145 for six in 20 overs.
Pacer Kevon Cooper did most of the damage in the death overs with his three for 23 and was also adjudged Man of the Match.
With the loss, Kings XI’s play-off chances are almost bleak while Rajasthan Royals jumped to the second place with 18 points from 13 matches. Kings XI Punjab have 10 points from 12 matches.
While chasing, Rajasthan lost skipper Rahul Dravid (4) early in the second over to left spinner Bipul Sharma (1/21), who sent one through bat and pad to rattle the stumps.
Kings XI needed some quick wickets, to make the most of Dravid’s early dismissal. But Rahane and Shane Watson (31) then forged a 66-run stand for the second wicket to take the match away from them.
Watson struck three fours and a six during his 25-ball innings that came to an end in the 10th over after he was castled by leggie Piyush Chawla.
With another 73 runs needed to win from 10 overs, Rahane and the 18-year-old Samson went about scoring runs in business-like fashion.
Mohali, May 9: Opener Ajinkya Rahane hit his third half century in a row to take Rajasthan Royals to a 8-wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab in Match 55 of IPL 2013 here at PCA Stadium on Thursday. The win pushed RR to second position in the Points Table with 18 points from 13 games. RR have now moved a step closer to the playoffs.
Rahane once again was the man who led RR’s chase. Just like he did in the previous game by carrying the bat against Delhi Daredevils, Rahane did it again. Last game he had made 63 not out and today an unbeaten 59. He had also scored 67 against Pune Warriors prior to DD match. RR comfortably overhauled KXIP’s 145 with one over to spare. Young Sanju Samson impressed again, making 47 not out off 33.
Earlier, Shaun Marsh’s half century helped Kings XI Punjab to 145/6 in 20 overs. KXIP were eyeing a score in excess of 150 but RR’s Kevon Cooper put the brakes on their scoring with a three-wicket haul. Marsh and David Miller fell to Cooper in the same over -19th of the innings. Miller, who had scored a century in his previous game, fell for just 8 runs.
