That's all from our end tonight! RR stay alive in playoffs with a win against KKR and they need to thank 17-year-old Riyan Parag for the win. Dinesh Karthik steadied KKR's ship after early wickets and his not out 97 took them to 175. RR made a good start but lost wickets in clusters before Parag slammed 47 and with support from Shreyas Gopal and Jofra Archer took RR to victory. We will see you tomorrow for CSK vs MI match!

Till then, goodbye!

"Everything's fine. Just had bad cramps, which got better in half-an-hour. I've just had a viral for the past three days. I always believe in myself and felt didn't do too much in the one over I bowled in the previous game. Was looking forward to this. Feeling great," says Man of the Match Varun Aaron.

00:09 (IST)

Varun Aaron is the Man of the Match for his bowling performance of 2/20 from four overs. 

00:07 (IST)

Steve Smith, winning captain: We made it difficult for ourselves. Lost a lot of wickets after a good start. Riyan Parag, isn't he an impressive young man? And some good contributions by Gopal and then Archer in the end. They bowled very well in powerplay.We saw a bit of grass on the wicket and thought we'd let the quicks go at them. I thought Oshane did a great job on IPL debut, and Varun Aaron was outstanding. I guess the first five or six games we weren't able to get over the line in those close ones. And when you do that it sort of makes your season, and if you don't it can break your season. Jofra and Stokesy are off tonight, so two big holes to fill. I am here for 13 games, so I will leave after Bangalore match.

"Just get bat on ball (On his objective in final over). Feel really excited. Moments like these really make me cherish playing for Rajasthan. We're got a great bunch of boys, and anyone who replaces me will do a great job, I'm sure of that," says Jofra Archer, who's played his final match for Rajasthan Royals this season. 

23:56 (IST)

"Little disappointed. I thought we were in it to win the game. We were looking for full and on the stumps. Can't put too much pressure on the bowler. Dew didn't help. Happy with the way the boys fought. A lot of it will boil down to how much they trust me as a leader. That we are not able to cross the line is not a good feeling," says KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik after his team suffer a sixth straight loss. 

IPL 12 Match 43 KKR vs RR at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata: SIX! A maximum over deep extra cover by Archer to lead Rajasthan to a rare victory at Eden Gardens as they stay alive in playoffs race.

IPL 2019, KKR vs RR, Today's Match Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) lock horns in the 43rd match of the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday. The two sides, once at the opposite ends of the points table, now occupy the sixth and the eighth spots in the points table, KKR the higher-ranked side between the two.

The race to the playoffs is getting more intense as we approach the business end of the tournament and the two sides facing off on Thursday are in a spot of bother as far as their chances of qualification are concerned. On one hand, the Royals have a simple equation — win all their remaining games to somehow make it to the last four after getting their campaign off to a horrid start.

Kolkata, on the other, aren't quite facing the do-or-die situation that RR and RCB find themselves in, but a loss in the upcoming fixture will make it really hard for them to salvage their title hopes in this edition. Andre Russell needs to bat up the order. With the form he is in, he's been wasted down the order. RR need to improve their bowling. The return to form of Rahane is a huge shot in their arm.

Both teams are coming off losses — in KKR's case, five in a row. While RR failed to defend a total of 191 against Delhi Capitals on a flat Jaipur pitch, KKR suffered a nine-wicket hiding at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad in an away clash.
