IPL 2018: Rajasthan vs Kolkata Match Report

Player of the match Kuldeep Yadav picked up 4/20 to guide the Kolkata Knight Riders to a six-wicket victory over the Rajasthan Royals in Kolkata on Tuesday

A victory for either side on the morrow may not rubber-stamp their passage to the playoffs but would surely help in the cause going to the final round of fixtures.

The Kolkata Knight Riders ended their home campaign in the VIVO Indian Premier League 2018 on a happy note when they defeated the Rajasthan Royals by six wickets in Match 49 yesterday. He got enough out of the partnerships with Chris Lynn and Russell to lead his team to the finish line with two overs to spare.

With good hands from Chris Lynn (45) and Nitish Rana (21), skipper Dinesh Karthik (41, 31b) continued his consistent display. While KKR are placed fourth owing to slightly better net run rate (-0.189), Rajasthan are fifth (NRR -0.347). RR, on the other hand, will also stay on the fourth spot.

RR have made a strong comeback in VIVO IPL 2018 by registering three back-to-back wins after a long losing streak all thanks to their English import Jos Buttler. Jos Buttler got stuck into the youngster Shivam Mavi (4-44-1), taking him for 28 runs in one over. Tripathi too came up with a cameo but gloved a bouncer in the end. There, RR will try to take the revenge no doubt.

Then came the Archer show.

The Wall Street Journal reported this month that James will not take a position with Disney after the Fox acquisition. John Nallen , Fox's current chief financial officer, will assume a broader role as chief operating officer.

The incident happened in 12th over of Rajasthan Royals innings when Binny walked down the track to play Kolkata Knight Riders chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav but failed to pick his wrong one. The game had a thrilling start with Rajasthan openers dominating over the KKR bowlers, nearly silencing the crowd. He has been economical according to T20 standards but hasn't been among wickets.

Despite Jaydev Unadkat swinging a few to the fence lower down, it could only get the Royals as far as 142, which was very underwhelming after their spectacular start.

Concerns with the bowling attack's have largely been overshadowed by Buttler's heroics, but it will be an issue against KKRs batsmen, who are fresh off of scoring 245 in 20 overs. The batsmen, as a result, lined him up and milked him without much fuss. "Had he been around for some more time, he could have gone berserk". He bowled slower, gave the ball air making sure the flight was over the eye level of the batsmen. Ajinkya Rahane and Buttler fell attempting reverse-sweeps as they tried to break the shackles. RR keep the review but don't get a wicket. Even in the tournament we did not bat that well except for Buttler whose consistency was good to see.

"If he had played for 10 more overs, the score would have been 170-180". RR were in a spot of bother and had certainly pegged themselves back. While his tactical acumen has been superb, his form with the bat has been inspiring as well with 544 runs in 12 matches at an astonishing average of 60.44. When the ball was full, he drove fluently through the off-side.

There were expectations from Ben Stokes but against spin, he has been a sitting duck. Steady batting was all they needed after an electric start.
