Ravichandran Ashwin’s Kings XI Punjab did the double over Ajinkya Rahane’s Rajasthan Royals as they got the better of the 2008 IPL champions by 12 runs at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday.
After the match, KXIP skipper Ashwin was spotted executing some bhangra moves and even sat on the top of a ‘dhol’ to celebrate his side’s victory.

After being asked to bat in Mohali, Punjab rode on a brilliant half-century by KL Rahul and a couple of sixes in the end by captain Ashwin to post a competitive 182 for six.
Rajasthan managed to score 170 for seven in their allotted 20 overs and suffered another close defeat in the IPL 2019.
