The Rajasthan Royals, having won the toss, elected to field first and got off to a good start with the ball, getting KL Rahul in the very first over. Gayle and Mayank Agarwal took a bit of time to get a decent partnership of over 50 runs before losing Agarwal's wicket. Sarfaraz Khan then came in and supported Gayle, who began to tee off after 11 years and smashing the bowlers to all parts. The universe boss ended up with 79 off 47 balls delivers, making it look easier than it was.

Once he got out to a brilliant catch from Tripathi, the scoring rate began to dip, but Sarfaraz Khan managed to play some cheeky shots, finishing off with 46 runs off 29 balls to take Rajasthan Royals to a very good total of 184 in the 20 overs.
