The last over of the innings went for 27 as Samson finished just eight short of an incredible century, continuing his rich vein of form in the early stages of the competition.
For Rajasthan, local boy Shreyas Gopal was the pick of the bowlers with his figures of 4-0-22-2 which included the main wickets of Kohli and de Villiers which turned the match in their favor. The Kiwi, who was dismissed by Axar Patel in the first over in their last game against Kings XI Punjab, in his bid to pull local off-spinner Gowtham Krishnappa was brilliantly caught by Ben Stokes. He got the wicket of unsafe Brendon McCullum at Mujib ur Rahim on the second ball of the second over.
