won the toss and chose to field first
lynn & Shubman Gill comes to the crease
Aaron! Welcome to the IPL 2019! It’s been a superb start for RR as chris lynn
tries to cut and gets chopped onto the stumps and top notch from Aaron. Chris
Lynn goes for duck. Kkr 0/1
and out goes Gill!
Varun Aaron again with the wicket. It’s the variation this time knuckle ball
swinging in and gill has no clue whatsoever to play or to leave! He ends up
getting his stump flying. Gill goes for 14. Kkr 31/2
man featuring again Varun Aaron as he catches a simple catch off shreyas gopal
to end Nitish Rana for 21. Kkr 42/3 in deep-deep trouble here. They needs a
Russell power to overcome the fallout.
half way stage KKR 49/3
6, 4, 4,
4, 1, 6 as Dinesh
Karthik pounds on the Shreyas Gopal. KKR needs some more like this. Kkr 74/3
out run-out for 11. Kkr 81/4
Fifty for skipper Dinesh Karthik off
35 balls. This must be a relief for him as he hasn’t been able to convert those
20/30 odds into big one. Here it happens and guess what at the moment where KKR
are in a jiffy. Kkr 116/4
been dropped twice before but this time his luck falls out. Third times the
charm. Hahahaha. He didn’t find out middle of the bat off oshane thomas and
youngster Riyan Parag makes no mistake as Russell departs for 14. Kkr 119/5
skipper takes a stunner!
Rahane takes the vivo perfect catch of the match as he has to cover alot of
distance from mid-wicket boundary. Carlos Brathwaite goes for 5. Kkr 131/6
up as Dinesh Karthik is playing a blinder here for KKR. Everything or nothing
for both of them.
1, 4, 6,
dot, 6, 1.
finishes 175/6 after 20 overs. Dinesh Karthik stays on unbeaten 97*
Royals needs 176 runs to win off 120 balls
Rahane & Sanju Samson comes in
the man Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson are dealing in boundaries only at the
moment. Trouble alarm for kkr. They need to get one of those out before you see
game moving away from you.
up for RR
spinner gets it!
Narine traps out Ajinkya Rahane LBW before he could even imagine as the ball
skids and turn in a little bit. Narine is back to his old form yet again as he
delivers when the team needed him the most! Rahane goes for 34. Rr 53/1
Chawla you beauty! Sanju Samson in double mind to sweep or not! Gets in between
doesn’t connect and off pole is onto a ride. Piyush Chawla just coming back
into the game courtesy a spin. Samson goes for 22. Rr 57/2
narine with the wicket again! Steve Smith is out bowled by the knight in
shining armour of KKR, Sunil Narine. Maybe just maybe if kkr wins tonight it’ll
be due to narine and only narine. What a guy he is! Just the same stuff from
him as he he bowls in the middle and Steve Smith tries to nudge it to the on
side , completely misses the ball and out goes for 2. Rr 63/3
halfway stage RR 78/3
says 98 runs required off 60 balls
Stokes perishes again!
season is i might say as he has not been to his actual form yet. That must be
trouble sign for him before the world cup tournament. He got the toe end of the
bat and holes out to Russell at long-on off Piyush Chawla. It’s spinner gain
and this is his 2nd wicket. Stokes goes for 11. Rr 78/4
Chawla sealing the deal for KKR!
has worked here for Kolkata as Stuart Binny hits earlier for a maximum and
Dinesh Karthik stations a fielder exactly at deep mid-wicket and what happens
thereafter? A flat batted shot straight to rinku singh. Another brainfade from
Rajasthan Royals. Binny goes for 11. Rr 98/5
says 76 runs required off 40 balls
upon youngster Riyan Parag and Shreyas Gopal
promising start for gopal ends as he holes out to gill off Prasidh for 9 ball
18. Rr 123/6
says 46 runs needed off 24 balls
either this way or other for both of the team as whoever loses, loses out the
spot for the playoffs
WICKET! Unlucky for Riyan Parag!
Bouncer from Russell after being hit for a six. Parag swung his bat hard and
smashed the stumps with his bat. He’s taken so RR close to a victory here. But
can’t finish things off. Parag falls for 47. RR still need 9 off 7.
to bowl the ultimate over
team are you backing?
the thriller and for KKR it’s a seventh loss in this season
length balls from Prasidh and Archer strikes a four and a six to seal a win.
Two length balls and it was all too easy for Archer. Brilliant from Parag as
Man of the match: Varun Aaron for his spell 4-0-20-2
