It was quite a drop for Rajasthan, who were 100/1 in eleven overs. But the 2008 champions lost eight wickets for 49 runs in the last nine overs after being asked to bat first. Openers Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal smashed seven boundaries between each other to take Rajasthan to 56/0 in the power-play. Five of those boundaries were from Lewis, who was the more aggressive of the two. Also Read: Pakistan Cricket Board accepts Wasim Khan’s resignation as CEO
