Match 43 RR VS KKR : RR on winning track as they thrashes KKR almost out of the tournament

Toss: RR won the toss and chose to field first

Chris lynn & Shubman Gill comes to the crease

Chopped it on!

Varon 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

A beauty and out goes Gill!

It’s 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

Gopal’s turn now!

It’s this 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.

At the 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

Narine out run-out for 11. Kkr 81/4

15 overs kkr 100/4

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

Out goes Russell!

He has 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

Former skipper takes a stunner!

Ajinkya 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

150 comes up as Dinesh Karthik is playing a blinder here for KKR. Everything or nothing for both of them.

1, 4, 6, dot, 6, 1.

As KKR finishes 175/6 after 20 overs. Dinesh Karthik stays on unbeaten 97*

Rajasthan Royals needs 176 runs to win off 120 balls

Ajinkya Rahane & Sanju Samson comes in

Sky is the exception!

As both 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.

50 comes up for RR

Mystery spinner gets it!

Sunil 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

Cleaned him up!

Piyush 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

Straight through him!

Gee it’s 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

At the halfway stage RR 78/3

Equation says 98 runs required off 60 balls

Ben Stokes perishes again!

This 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

Piyush Chawla sealing the deal for KKR!

The plan 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

100 up for RR

Equation says 76 runs required off 40 balls

It’s all upon youngster Riyan Parag and Shreyas Gopal

Gopal goes out!

A promising start for gopal ends as he holes out to gill off Prasidh for 9 ball 18. Rr 123/6

Equation says 46 runs needed off 24 balls

It’s either this way or other for both of the team as whoever loses, loses out the spot for the playoffs

HIT WICKET! Unlucky for Riyan Parag!

Drama! 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.

Prasidh to bowl the ultimate over

Which team are you backing?

RR wins the thriller and for KKR it’s a seventh loss in this season

Two 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 well.
