Kings XI Punjab vs Rising Pune Supergiant IPL Highlights 8 April 2017
Watch Punjab vs Pune highlights today. These are KP vs RPS highlights of the 4th IPL match played at Indore on 8-4-2017. Kings XI Punjab went against the history of the Holkar Stadium in Indore when they opted to chase on Saturday. The team batting first had won seven out of 10 times at this ground but Glenn Maxwell, in his first game as captain across 340 recognised matches, was swayed by the fact that the pitch would be good for strokeplay all through the match.
Kings XI handed a debut to 25-year old left-arm seamer T Natarajan, whom they bought for INR 3 crore at the 2017 auction. Rising Pune Supergiant also had a rookie: the 17-year old legspinner Rahul Chahar was playing the first T20 match of his career. He became the IPL’s third-youngest debutant. With him set to partner Imran Tahir, Adam Zampa was surplus to requirements and was replaced with Australian allrounder Dan Christian.
Kings XI were happy to leave the captains at the 2016 World T20 final, Eoin Morgan and Darren Sammy, on the bench, opting for Hashim Amla at the top of the order, and Marcus Stoinis to perform the allrounder’s role, in addition to captain Maxwell and David Miller.
Rising Pune had lost each of their seven matches they had batted first last year, and their season-opening win in 2017 came in a chase. Fast bowler Ashok Dinda, who leaked 30 runs in the final over on Thursday, was retained in the XI.
