Laxmi shocks Rajasthan out of IPL

A gritty knock by Laxmi Ratan Shukla of Kolkata shocked defending champions Rajasthan out of this year’s IPL, in a low scoring thrilling match.

Keen to salvage some pride, Kolkata KnightRiders (KKR) put up a high class performance with their fielders backing up their bowlers. If Charles Langeveldt was KKR’s hero in bowling, it was their fielding that outsmarted the Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) batsmen, effecting 3 runouts today. Langeveldt, playing his first match of the tournament, ran through the top order of RR picking up 3 crucial wickets for 15 runs earning him a Bowling Efficiency of 160.
