IPL 2020 Highlights, RR vs KKR Match, Full Cricket Score: Kolkata beat Rajasthan by 37 runs, collect 2nd win

23:44 (IST)

So that's that from us today as well. A good win for KKR, as they collect two more points. They open their account in Dubai as well and it seems with the variety they have in the bowling department, they should look to defend more in Dubai. RR did not play as a unit today and would like to regroup before the next game. Tomorrow, Kings XI Punjab play Mumbai Indians at Abu Dhabi. See you tomorrow at 5.30 pm, as we build up to the game at 7.30. For now, take care and good night. 

23:42 (IST)

Shivam Mavi: The ball was seaming when I started off, so decided to stick to my lengths and focused on it. It initially seemed to be a little flat. Stuck to a normal length after seeing the ball seam around a bit. I’ve played against these guys before and knew what shots they like to play, and the ball wasn’t coming on to the bat as nicely.

23:41 (IST)

Shivam Mavi is the Player of the Match for his haul of 2/20 from his quota of four overs!

23:40 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik, KKR captain: I would not call it a perfect game, a lot of areas to work on. It was a good game. The way Gill started, the way Mavi bowled and Russell started was good to see. Archer bowled very well. It was not that easy a wicket to bat on and made it look easier than it was. I keep saying these boys the journey they have been through, for them to come out there and express themselves is really special. We would have batted first, that was our plan, to put runs on the board.  

23:27 (IST)

Steve Smith, Rajasthan Royals captain: Didn’t quite go to plan, but that happens in T20 cricket sometimes. Few areas to improve on. I think it could go one way or another. We planned to put their death bowling under pressure. Lost too many wickets upfront. Keep moving forward, and it could get better. (On adapting to Dubai conditions) Yeah probably didn’t adapt as well as we could have, and dropped a few catches which cost us. It’s about trying to form whatever XI is the best for us. (On battle with Cummins) Wasn’t a great battle was it? I had a chat with him earlier and he told me, “You normally smack those in the nets!”

23:20 (IST)

After 20 overs,Rajasthan Royals 137/9 ( Tom Curran 54 , Ankit Rajpoot 7)

KKR win by 37 runs. RR lose their first game. Fifty for Curran with the bat is a big positive for RR from the match apart from that Archer spell. Nothing inspiring really other than these two performances. KKR collect two more points. Very satisfying performance from the young players. DK should be a happy captain.

FOUR! Curran finishes the match with a boundary, steps out and hits it to deep extra cover region for four runs.

Narine finishes his spell but his last over has fetched 20 runs for RR. Curran hitting three big sixes to complete his fifty. Rajasthan Royals need 49 runs in 6 balls.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders: KKR win by 37 runs. RR lose their first game. Fifty for Curran with the bat is a big positive for RR from the match apart from that Archer spell. Nothing inspiring really other than these two performances. KKR collect two more points. Very satisfying performance from the young players. DK should be a happy captain.

Preview: A high on confidence Rajasthan Royals will look to continue their winning momentum when they face Kolkata Knight Riders in the 12th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday.

RR have enjoyed an electric start to their IPL 2020 campaign, winning both of their opening matches in some style. While they beat CSK by 16 runs after posting 216 runs on board batting first, Sanju Samson and Rahul Tewatia stole the limelight as the Jaipur-based franchise chased down a record target of 224 against Kings XI Punjab on Sunday.

Tewatia, who was on 17 from 23 at one stage, had a dream outing against the Punjab franchise, going on to slam 53 runs off just 31 balls to perfectly set-up the platform for an RR win. He and Samson built a 61-run stand for the third wicket before the Kerala batsman was dismissed by Mohammed Shami. And although Tewatia and Riyan Parag were dismissed later on, the English duo of Jofra Archer and Tom Curran held their nerve to beat KXIP by four wickets.

Samson, who has scored 74 and 85 in the first two games, will continue playing an important role in RR’s batting lineup, and as always, much will be expected from him as well as skipper Steve Smith, who has also enjoyed a positive start with scores of 69 and 50.

Samson also has the best strike-rate (214.86) so far in IPL 2020, after aggregating 159 runs from the first two games. He also ranks fourth on the highest run-getters (159) list this season, behind CSK’s Faf du Plessis (173) and the KXIP duo of Mayank Agarwal (221) and KL Rahul (222).

Jos Buttler played his first game for RR this season against KXIP after serving his mandatory quarantine coming from England, and will be one to watch out for despite failing to impress in that clash.

The experienced pace duo of Archer and Jaydev Unadkat, however, are yet to fire, and will be hoping to make an impact in the game.

Meanwhile, KKR are coming off a thumping win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, as Shubman Gill’s knock of 70 propelled them to chase down 145 with two overs to spare.

KKR boast of Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell - two reliable batsmen who could be a threat for bowlers on their day. There were even talks of Russell being promoted up the order before the tournament, but the team management have so far not given any intention of doing so. Russell came out to bat at No 6 in the first game against Mumbai Indians, while KKR did not have to rely on him for the chase against SRH.

While Pat Cummins went wicketless for 49 runs in KKR’s contest against MI, he did pick up a wicket against SRH, finishing with figures of 1/19. It may be just the initial stages of the campaign, but Kuldeep Yadav has endured a silent start, remaining wicketless in the two matches.
