The 54th match of the Indian Premier League saw action between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. It was a do or die contest for both Royals and Kolkata, but the latter rose to the occasion to keep their playoffs dream alive. KKR won the game by 60 runs. Batting first, KKR posted a huge 191 on the board where Eoin Morgan displayed a perfect knock (68* off 35) of a skipper. Rahul Tripathi’s 39 off 34 remained essential in pushing the team forward.
Pat Cummins was adjudged as the player of the match for his surreal pace attack in the power play. Andre Russell returned to the game after quite some time and poured in his decent contribution by adding 25 off 11 in the end. Jofra Archer remained economical from RR by picking one wicket. Rahul Tewatia again showed his dominance with the ball by naming three wickets under his belt.
Hunting down the challenging target, the top order of RR failed terribly to do the right thing in the match. Jos Buttler’s 35 off 22 was the only fine spot from Rajasthan’s batting unit. Shivam Mavi was phenomenal as he conceded just 15 runs to pick two wickets. Pat Cummins, on the other hand, justified his big price tag in every sense today by picking big four wickets.
