Rajasthan Royals, who were down and out for most of their chase against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, scripted another emphatic turnaround as Rahul Tewatia (45*) and Riyan Parag (42*)helped the Royals recover from 78 for 5 in the 12th over to chase down 159 with a ball to spare.
However, the thrilling clash was marred by an ugly altercation between Tewatia and SRH pacer Khaleel Ahmed.
It all started during the last over of the match. Some words were exchanged between the two and they were seen firing verbal volleys at each other after the fourth delivery of the over.
Notably, after the match ended, the argument between Tewatia and Khaleel seemed to continue and that is when Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner stepped in an attempt to calm the RR batsman down as he was looking very animated.
Later, Khaleel, in a bid to make peace, put his arm around Tewatia’s shoulder while they were walking back to the dressing room.
