The Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated the Punjab Kings (PBKS) and secured two essential points. Notably, on May 19, the Men in Pink triumphed by a margin of four wickets at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Dharamsala.
Punjab scored a respectable 187 runs in the first innings, with significant contributions from Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma, and M. Shahrukh Khan. However, Rajasthan won thanks to a scorching knock from Shimron Hetmyer after Yashasvi Jaiswal and Devdutt Padikkal both scored fifty. Because of this win, the Royals remain in the running for the top-tier league's playoffs.
