2. Sanju Samson pulls off an MS Dhoni style run out

The Rajasthan Royals captain reminded fans of MS Dhoni as he inflicted a smart run out of Liam Livingstone. On the fifth ball of the 18th over, the Punjab batter tried to steal a couple of runs against Tanush Kotian. However, the youngster threw the ball straight to the wicket-keeper who threw the ball onto the stumps with one hand after collecting it to run out Livingstone and reminded fans of MS Dhoni.

3. Shimron Hetmyer guides Rajasthan home with his quick-fire cameo

The southpaw walked in to bat with RR on 113/4 after 16.4 overs needing 35 runs to win from 20 balls. The situation got tense as Rovman Powell and Dhruv Jurel also got dismissed leaving Hetmyer as the only recognized batter at the crease. However, the 27-year-old was unfazed by the challenge and scored 27 off just 10 balls with the help of one four and three sixes to take his team over the line on the penultimate ball of the game.
