Dhawan’s Punjab Kings finished sixth in the IPL points table and failed to make it to the knockout stage. Top four teams of this year’s IPL were Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals, Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore. While Gujarat Titans have already booked their place in the final, Rajasthan Royals and the RCB will lock horns today to face Hardik Pandya-led team for the ultimate IPL glory on Sunday.
The RCB had defeated the LSG by 14 runs to knock the latter out of the competition. This was possible by an extraordinary knock played by young Rajat Patidar, who remained unbeaten at 112 from 52 balls.
