Kings XI Punjab captain KL Rahul beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore single-handedly with the bat as he muscled the highest score in IPL 2020. KL Rahul paced his innings perfectly as the Royal Challengers’ bowlers suffered a nightmare outing across facets, capped by Virat Kohli’s torrid time, reprieving his counterpart twice.

Kings XI Punjab smashed 80 runs in the last five overs as the captain batted through the innings, becoming the first centurion of the edition, hammering 14 fours and seven sixes in a 69-ball knock. Dale Steyn bore the most, conceding runs at 14.25 in four overs as the opposition stormed to 206. In a 97-run loss of the three-time finalists, Washington Sundar was the top run-scorer with 30. Eventually, with 670 runs, Rahul became the leading run-scorer of the edition.
