IPL 2018: KKR Bash RR to stay in playoff contention

Mumbai Indians got victory against KKR

With Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knightriders sitting on the same points, separated only by net run rate, a win for either side could see them seal their playoff spot and leave the other behind in their dust. With two games to go and everything to play for, they need Buttler to continue his outstanding run. The innings saw a sudden slump with Kuldeep Yadav bagging four wickets in the middle overs.

"They started off brilliantly but it shows our character".

Narine gave Kolkata a brisk start when he smashed off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham for two sixes and two fours off the first four deliveries. With Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) coming back in the cash-rich league after an absence of two years, the season was expected to be an exciting one. A big-margin win would take RR to the third place with a better NRR ensuring that it becomes impossible for KXIP to catch up with them. If the current scenario is to be looked at, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have already qualified to the playoffs. Besides, KKR is in 3rd position.

Earlier in 6th May, 2018 the 38th match of the tournament was executed.

It's a mad scramble for the two available play-off berths with five teams including KKR and RR, who are tied on 12 points, remaining in the hunt.

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.

Kolkata has been an inconsistent team in season 11 of the IPL having won only half of their matches. He has scored 67, 51, 82, 95* and 94*.

Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik and Rajasthan Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane. Top orders were nearly failed in front of the opponent bowlers. The team scored 19 runs in the second over of the innings while the total of 28 runs in the third over of the innings.

Tripathi fell to Russell in the West Indian's first over and the match's fifth, stitching together a 63-run opening wicket partnership off 29 deliveries. Otherwise, this match looks very evenly poised with both teams high on morale for the game. The match between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday will also be crucial for RCB.

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. Gayle was failed in that day. Yes, we did leak around 8-10 runs (against MI) but the boys are working hard. Rahul played well and left the ground with victory.

Chris Lynn batted lot more cautiously than his usual style and stitched up a 33-run stand with Nitish Rana.

"I have a feeling that we have a great chance now of winning this match and making it through to the eliminators".
