IPL 2018, KKR vs RR: Here are the final playing eleven


With the bat in hand, he scored an unbeaten 35 off 27 balls to ensure that the KKR team chased down the target easily.

Curran dents RR further: Tom Curran struck twice with the first two balls as the hosts slipped further. In this game, he bagged a duck and was dismissed in the very first over by K Gowtham.

OUT! Big one this for KKR. Ben Stokes was looking to go over long-off, but fails to do so.

Skipper Dinesh Karthik (42 not out) though ensured there was no late drama as he combined with Nitish Rana (35 not out) stitching an unbeaten 61-run stand, taking Kolkata home with an over to spare.

OUT! Another wicket goes down. Kuldeep Yadav picks the wicket.

Pressure on KKR: The Royals have overcome a sluggish start and are nicely poised at 48 for no loss at the end of the powerplay. Not an impressive innings though.

EXPENSIVE: Sunil Narine has been strangely off the boil tonight.

Rahane (36 off 19) was then stumped brilliantly by Karthik, who back-flicked the ball onto the stumps with his right hand after it clipped the batsman's pad and headed towards square leg - that dismissal ending a 54-run opening stand between Rahane and D'Arcy Short (44 from 43). Also, he bagged the big wicket of Ben Stokes, who was threatening to cut loose in the game.




OUT! Superb effort from Dinesh Karthik.

WICKET: 170 looks hard now, Stokes ran down the track, doesn't read the wrong 'un from Chawla and slices the lofted drive to deep mid-off. He misses it and the ball hits his pad.

The first six overs fetched Royals 48 runs and the home fans provided vociferous support to their team only to experience disappointment as KKR clawed its way back courtesy Rana. In last three overs they have upped the ante and scored 39 runs.

Rajasthan Royals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 15th match of this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) at Jaipur's Sawai Man Singh Stadium on Wednesday.

The Royals haven't changed their playing eleven since the start of this season's IPL. However, many believed that the clinical Royals could pip the Kolkata Knight Riders in the fixture. Stay tuned as we bring to you live score updates of RR vs KKR on this page.

According to the standings, Knight Riders are at the second spot with four points from four matches. Out of these, Royals have won nine while KKR have emerged victorious in six.

Earlier, the wily spin attack of KKR restricted RR to 160 for eight. This is going to be an important clash as teams look to continue their winning momentum. Openers Ajinkya Rahane and D'Arcy Short started the innings well but lost two quick wickets including the in-form Sanju Samson.
