Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers bowl out Rajasthan Royals to 142

Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers bowl out Rajasthan Royals to 142

Temperatures will settle between 29 and 32 degrees for the city of Kolkata which means weather will remain slightly uncomfortable.

Kolkata have tightened their grip on third place in the table with Rajasthan two points back in fourth - the Royals could make the play-offs with a win over RCB in their final group game but will be without Stokes and Buttler, who will return to England ahead of the first Test against Pakistan.

Earlier, until the start of the eighth over in the RR innings, the visitors were cruising at supersonic speeds. As the sun shone over the Holkar Stadium in Indore, KKR batsman made good work out of a exhausted Kings XI Punjab bowling as they got off to a blistering start. KKR's Sunil Narine has 15 now after a wicket against RR while Kuldeep Yadav takes his total to 13 after tonight's 4-wicket haul. They took the chance and started the match with full confidence. Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa are well equipped with their own batting powers.

While Kings XI Punjab have five wins and three defeats after a strong start, Rajasthan Royals, winners of IPL 2008 are struggling in their chase for a playoff berth, after three victories and five losses.

Former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne seems to be highly impressed by Sanju Samson's impressive show in the ongoing 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he said that Rajasthan Royals' wicketkeeper-batsman will be the next superstar of the Indian cricket.

Matching Buttler's exploits with the bat, West Indian bowling all-rounder Jofra Archer has been in fine form for the Jaipur-based side.

145/4, Kolkata Knight Riders wins by 6 wickets. Even on Sunday, with a match influencing spell of 2/16 in four overs, Archer was instrumental in restricting Mumbai to 168/6 in the first innings.

Chasing the target of 143 runs, KKR batsmen Sunil Nairne smashed 21 runs in the first over but soon fell.

The equation is simple for KKR.

Both Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals are part of this mid-table muddle, having won six of their 12 matches.

Since both teams are levelled with 12 points each, they have everything to play for but no room for error. He sends in a bouncer to Lynn who clears the front leg and goes for the cut, he doesn't connect well with it and once again gets a top edge but isn't lucky this time as Anureet takes a comfortable catch at deep point.

Rajasthan Royals, meanwhile, stuck on 12 points from 13 matches and they will now find it hard to make it to the play-offs though theoretically still in contention. RR keep the review but don't get a wicket.
