5 memorable moments from the RPS v GL match that don’t fade away
Ben Stokes' scintillating innings took RPS one step closer to the playoffs.
So far this season, the Indian Premier League has lacked a game where a player has single-handedly determined the outcome of it. However, Ben Stokes’ innings tonight was a perfect display of that.
Rising Pune Supergiant won the toss and put the Lions in to bat first. The Pune bowlers did well to restrict the Gujarat team to a total of 161 runs. In response, the hosts struggled to take off, with none of their top four batsmen reaching double figures.
However, in the end, it was the Stokes show as his century carried his team to the land of victory.
Here are 5 memorable moments from the match that don't fade away, quite like the Axe Signature range of body perfumes:
#1 GL’s fine opening stand
It seems as though the Gujarat Lions have finally found a stable opening pair in the form of Ishan Kishan and Brendon McCullum. The pair gave the Lions a solid opening stand of 55 runs before the former was dismissed.
While Kishan’s innings consisted of three boundaries and two sixes, making a 24-ball 31 in the process, McCullum was the fiercer one, scoring 45 from just 27 balls and hitting five boundaries and two sixes.
