The 21-year-old accomplished this record by scoring his fifty off just 13 balls. Jaiswal started a 150-run chase by slamming 26 runs off KKR captain Nitish Rana in the first over.

Jaiswal has now surpassed Ishan Kishan’s (516) record for the most runs scored by an uncapped Indian player in an IPL season.

With this knock, RR are not just in a winning position but also will look to improve their net run rate and complete the target quickly.

Yuzvendra Chahal‘s four-wicket haul assisted the Rajasthan Royals in holding the Kolkata Knight Riders to a total of 149/8.

Sanju Samson, the captain of RR, won the toss and decided to bowl first against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. Shimron Hetmyer and Sandeep Sharma made some outstanding catches to limit KKR to just 37 runs during the powerplay, allowing Trent Boult to score twice. 

The going hasn’t been easy for KKR, but Venkatesh Iyer’s 42-ball 57 propelled their comeback in the middle overs. Yuzvendra Chahal secured the crucial dismissals of Andre Russell and Iyer, surpassing Dwayne Bravo to become the IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker.
