  Commentary

  • Thanks, ladies and gents, that's all from our side for this game. See you tomorrow for another crucial game of the IPL 2018. Tata.

  • Kuldeep Yadav (MoM): I was a bit under pressure after the start they got. Jos Buttler is the man in form and I was just trying to get him out. I don't try a lot because I bank on my strengths. But you need to keep changing in T20s. I knew Buttler would go for a reverse sweep, that's why I bowled the quicker one to him. You need to keep planning for every game, every batsman. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but you need to keep trying.

  • Player of the match - Kuldeep Yadav

  • Dinesh Karthik: I think they started brilliantly, Buttler and Tripathi. But it also shows our character that we didn't give up. Kuldeep is a quality bowler but sometimes is so confident that he ends up slacking. He is very hardworking and if I can keep him motivated, that's enough.

  • Ajinkya Rahane: I think the way Tripathi and Buttler batted when I went in, I wanted to carry it. Jos cannot do it every time. Others need to take the responsibility. I felt 170-180 would have been quite good on this wicket. It's all about learning from our mistakes and moving forward. We will definitely miss Jos and Stokesey. But at the same time, I am really happy for Jos.

  • Narine gave Kolkata a blazing start but Rajasthan struck back with a couple of quick wickets. However, 144 was never going to be enough. Lynn took the side closer to the target before Karthik sealed it with a flourish.

End of the Innings

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 6 wickets
Target: 143

  Full commentary

  • Rajasthan started with a bang with Buttler and Tripathi smashing everything to the boundary but once Buttler departed, the innings sort of collapsed. The wrecker-in-chief was Kuldeep Yadav who picked up four wickets. Some late blows from Unadkat helped Rajasthan to 142 before they were bowled out with one over to spare. We will be back in a while, stay tuned.

  • Kolkata Knight Riders Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • Michael Clarke's pitch report: This wicket is a little different. One end has a nice even grass covering, and looks like a batting surface. The other end is particularly dry and the KKR spinners like Narine are likely to dominate bowling from the other end.

  • Rajasthan have won their last three games but is there more to them than just Buttler? On the other hand, Kolkata had the playoffs berth in their sight before losing back-to-back games to Mumbai. However, the bounced back in style with a comprehensive victory over Punjab in their previous game. Having said that, an exciting contest awaits us.

  Full commentary

  • Thanks, ladies and gents, that's all from our side for this game. See you tomorrow for another crucial game of the IPL 2018. Tata.

  • Kuldeep Yadav (MoM): I was a bit under pressure after the start they got. Jos Buttler is the man in form and I was just trying to get him out. I don't try a lot because I bank on my strengths. But you need to keep changing in T20s. I knew Buttler would go for a reverse sweep, that's why I bowled the quicker one to him. You need to keep planning for every game, every batsman. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but you need to keep trying.

  • Player of the match - Kuldeep Yadav

  • Dinesh Karthik: I think they started brilliantly, Buttler and Tripathi. But it also shows our character that we didn't give up. Kuldeep is a quality bowler but sometimes is so confident that he ends up slacking. He is very hardworking and if I can keep him motivated, that's enough.

  • Ajinkya Rahane: I think the way Tripathi and Buttler batted when I went in, I wanted to carry it. Jos cannot do it every time. Others need to take the responsibility. I felt 170-180 would have been quite good on this wicket. It's all about learning from our mistakes and moving forward. We will definitely miss Jos and Stokesey. But at the same time, I am really happy for Jos.

  • Narine gave Kolkata a blazing start but Rajasthan struck back with a couple of quick wickets. However, 144 was never going to be enough. Lynn took the side closer to the target before Karthik sealed it with a flourish.
