IPL: KKR Edges Closer to Playoffs After Easy Win Against Rajasthan Royals

IPL: KKR Edges Closer to Playoffs After Easy Win Against Rajasthan Royals IPL: KKR Edges Closer to Playoffs After Easy Win Against Rajasthan Royals

Earlier, after KKR won the toss and elected to field, the Rajasthan Royal (RR) batting saw some sharp twists and turns.

Lynn's 45 was the top-score of the match. The ploy worked and the two reined in the run overdose.

"He's (Kuldeep Yadav) an global quality player. sometimes he slacks off, bowls a bad ball, trying too much so I'm just trying to make him do as well as he can and stay consistent". In the post match presentation Kuldeep revealed that he was under pressure when he came to bowl but focused on the basics.

If they lose to KKR, they will hope that Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Kings XI Punjab lose one match each to make the qualification easier. However, wickets falling in regular intervals restricted the run flow.

Karthik and Andre Russell (11 n.o. off 5) batted aggressively to see off the chase with plenty to spare. Knowing the target in front of his team wasn't too demanding, the KKR opener was prepared to bide his time; he batted patiently against the spinners, and took the toll against the quicks.

After Archer's heroics, Jos Buttler (94 not out, 53b, 9x4, 5x6) got into the thick of action and delivered a fine victory that has kept his team in the fray for the playoffs.

From 76/1, RR went to 103/6 when K Gowtham couldn't deal with one from Shivam Mavi that got big. But the Royals captain chose to reverse sweep a Kuldeep googly from around the leg stump.

It was redemption time for Kuldeep last night as he first got Rajasthan skipper Ajinkya Rahane out bowled with a loopy googly, and then dismissed dangerman Jos Buttler.

Amid the chaos, Narine and Mavi picked up Sanju Samson (12) and Krishnappa Gowtham (3) respectively as Rajasthan lost seven wickets for 44 to hand the Knight Riders the initiative. "We have to learn from our mistake, we have just one league game left, if we can learn from this game and stay positive. we were too positive with our batting tonight but that's the way it goes".

It was Russell who gave KKR the opening they so desperately needed.

Known to be slow starters, Mumbai Indians looked like down and out of the playoff contention, but they made a remarkable comeback in the second half of tournament and put themselves in playoff contention. Russell would be the only bowler in the match to not concede a single boundary. Ben Stokes claimed two wickets - that of Narine and Robin Uthappa (4) - in successive overs en route to his superb 3/15 as KKR looked in a spot of bother with 69/3, requiring 74 from 70 balls.

Kuldeep Yadav, for his spell of 4-0-20-4.
