Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Rajasthan Royals by 6 wickets

IPL 2018 KKR vs MI Dinesh Karthik Pulls Off MS Dhoni Like Stumping

Dinesh Karthik is the highest run-getter for KKR in the IPL 2018

After just three runs from the first eight balls, Buttler and opening partner Rahul Tripathi (27 off 15) went berserk, striking all of the next 10 deliveries for four or six between them.

The match was grounded at the home venue of KXIP and so, they were the favourite undeclared.

However, once the openers got out, it was the same old story for Rajasthan. He scored only 8 runs so far. "The intent was positive from the team. But, we have to learn as a team", Rahane said at the post-match news conference on Tuesday night. All batsmen will have to take responsibility. "I am a big fan of him (Warne)". "I knew it would be a cracker of a match, which I could not afford to miss at any cost". "Jos was again batting so well, but it's not just up to him all the time. Hopefully we can come up with good game plan which leads us to victory", he concluded. Sometimes when you play like that, you get over 200.

Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, who was hit for five sixes by Mumbai's Ishan Kishan, four of them in-a-row, in Kolkata's last match at the venue, made a fine comeback to finish with 4-0-20-4.

Jos Buttler has single-handedly brought Rajasthan back in the race with his five consecutive fifties.

Put in to bat first, RR flew away with the match in the first 3 overs, smashing 49 runs.

"He started really well in this match too".

"They started off brilliantly but it shows our character". It was the reverse sweep that did Buttler in as well for a 22-ball 39 when he top edged one to short third man.

Sodhi has been a consistent performer for Rajasthan since he was signed as an injury replacement for injured Afghanistan spinner Zahir Khan, conceding just 5.93 runs per over across his first four games. "Kuldeep is an worldwide quality bowler and is one of the best chinaman bowlers in the world", said Karthik, who scored a calm and composed 41* to help his team chase down the 143-run target with two overs to spare. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are on a roll with a hat-trick of wins and with same points (12).

Narine successfully won a TV lbw referral against Sanju Samson (11) before Yadav had Ben Stokes caught off his own bowling in his last over as Rajasthan slipped to 7-107 in the 14th over. "Both teams are coming to confidence, so it's going to boil down who executes better on the day". We will definitely miss Jos and Ben as we all know how risky they are. It's everyone's dream to represent their country.

They have themselves to blame for putting themselves in such scenario. Even Stokes - his all-round skills and his inputs. "For me it was the best wicket", he said. We can expect another 175 to 180 score in this game. "That's important for us, then only we stand a chance to qualify", he signed off. He moved forward to play the ball but Karthik reacted quickly and dislodged the bails.
