Kings XI Punjab have claimed a 16-run win over the Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League match this afternoon.

The league leaders, who have already secured their place in the playoffs, made a solid start before Virender Sehwag was dismissed for 18 runs.

The middle order kept adding to the score, with Shaun Marsh finishing as the team's top scorer with 40, as the Royals were set a target of 180 for victory.

Rajasthan started well in their run chase, but Shane Watson was bowled for a first-ball duck before Stuart Binny followed shortly after for seven.

Sanju Samson, James Faulkner and Brad Hodge were the only batsmen to score more than 30 as Akshar Patel led the Kings XI attack, finishing with figures of 3-24 to leave the Royals 16 runs short.
