Hope you enjoyed our coverage of this high-voltage entertainer. See you tomorrow at the capital, where DC host defending champions CSK. 
And here it is - the self-proclaimed Universe Boss wins the MoTM award! 

Ravi Ashwin believes it is the batsmen who need to be more aware of the surroundings. He certainly feels he was right to have ran out Buttler. 
Game-changing moment of the match goes to KL Rahul, for that remarkable take that saw Steve Smith's back. Should Ashwin have got it? Or was it 'unethical'? 
Stylish player - Sarfaraz Khan 
The Super Striker of the match award goes to.... No prizes for guessing, it's Chris Gayle. 

The perfect catch of the match, for obvious reasons, goes to KL Rahul - who took that blinder at the boundary. 
And here's the presentation party. 
Should RR blame the fact that Buttler's controversial wicket changed the game? They still had Smith, Samson and four other players more than capable of striking a long ball in the dug out. We say, this was way too reckless from the home team. 
And it's over! Kings XI Punjab mastermind a sensational comeback to register their first victory at Jaipur, probably their most hard-fought win. At one stage, it looked all but over, but in the space of 22 deliveries, Ashwin and co. picked up a whopping seven wickets to get over the line. All the credit goes to Ashwin's eceononical display, along with Shami, Mujeeb and Curran's death overs' contributions. 
Of course, we cannot forget Chris Gayle's whirlwind knock of 79 early on.
