It has entered the book of Guinness Book of World Records as it has became the largest shirt in the world. More than 1,00,00 people from the stadium and millions on the television saw history being made. Talking about the ongoing final of the season, Rajasthan won the toss and elected to bat first given the pressure of the scoreboard which might come into play in the second innings.
The team had a mixed start as Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored 22 off 16 including two sixes and a four, was batting in two different way. During one stage, he played some lovely shots. However, he looked very nervous in the other part of his innings. He got out when the scorecard read 31 runs in four overs. Skipper Sanju Samson came and stitched a partnership of 29 runs with Jos Buttler before he was dismissed by his opposite number right after the break.
Buttler is batting at 34 and Devdutt Padikkal has come out to bat at the time of writing. The team will be looking to win the title and pay their tributes to their former skipper and late Shane Warne.
