MUMBAI, APRIL 11 (HUS). Rajasthan Royals pacer Trent Boult has praised his fellow pacer Kuldeep Sen for defending 15 runs in the last over against Lucknow Super Giants.

Shimron Hetmyer’s 59 not out and Yuzvendra Chahal four wickets helped Rajasthan Royals beat Lucknow Super Giants by three runs at the Wankhede Stadium here on Sunday.

Boult said after the match, “My role with the new ball is to take as many wickets as possible. The moisture and overheads helped me swing the ball.

Boult praised Kuldeep Sen saying, “Kuldeep did his job well defending 15 runs in the end and he is getting better match by match. We have some quality fast bowling in our side and in the tournament. I will probably focus on my batting before my bowling (laughs).”

In the last over, Rajasthan needed 15 runs to defend and young Kuldeep Sen bowled brilliantly against Marcus Stoinis to help his team win by three runs. With this win, Rajasthan’s team reached the top of the points table.

Bolt gave a brilliant start to the Rajasthan team defending the target of 166 runs and gave a double blow to Lucknow in the very first over. Boult dismissed captain KL Rahul and Krishnappa Gautam in the first two balls.

The Rajasthan Royals team was struggling at 67 for 4 at one time but thanks to Shimron Hetmyer’s unbeaten 59, the team reached a respectable score of 165 for 6 in 20 overs.
