Jos Buttler seems unstoppable as he scored 2nd century of this season. In the bowling unit, Yuzvendra Chahal demolished the KKR batting line-up with 5 wickets haul. Rajasthan Royals defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 runs in a thrilling match.

Rajasthan Royals scored 217 runs. Chasing the target of 218 runs, KKR’s team scored 210 runs in 19.4 overs. For Kolkata, skipper Shreyas Iyer top-scored with 85 runs off 51 balls, while opener Aaron Finch (58) was dismissed after scoring a half-century.

This is Rajasthan’s fourth win in six matches while Kolkata’s fourth defeat in seven matches. For Rajasthan, Yuzvendra Chahal took 5 wickets for 40 runs in his quota of four overs.

Chasing the target, Kolkata Knight Riders did not have a good start. KKR lost the wicket of opener Sunil Narine on the very first ball of the over. Narine was run out by Shimron Hetmyer on a fine throw. After first wicket, Aaron Finch kept the scoring rate up and Shreyas Iyer played the anchor role. Both shared 107 runs for the second wicket and kept Kolkata Knight Riders alive in the game. 

Finch was dismissed after playing an destructive innings of 58 runs in 28 balls. Finch hit 9 fours and 2 sixes in his half-century innings before being caught by Karun Nair off Prasidh Krishna. Nitish Rana could not do anything special and returned to the pavilion after scoring 18 runs in 11 balls. After this R Ashwin did not even allow Andre Russell to open the account as he was sent back with a duck. 

Earlier, with Jos Buttler’s second century of the current IPL season, Rajasthan Royals scored 217 for 5 against Kolkata Knight Riders. Buttler scored 103 runs in 61 balls with five sixes and nine fours. He shared 97 for the first wicket with Devdutt Padikkal (24) and 67 runs for the second wicket with captain Sanju Samson (38). Towards the end, Shimron Hetmyer played an unbeaten 26 off 13 balls.

Sunil Narine, playing the 150th IPL match for Knight Riders, took 2 wickets for just 21 runs in four overs. Pat Cummins gave 50 runs in four overs while Umesh Yadav conceded 44 runs. Cummins got one wicket while Umesh did not get any wicket. After losing the toss to bat, Jos Buttler provided Rajasthan Royals a flying start. Buttler took the aggressive route after patiently anticipating first two overs.
