IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals latest updates: That's it. KKR win this big match by 60 runs. They have knocked RR out of the competition, they join CSK and KXIP as the ousted teams. Two teams knocked out today. Nagarkoti completes his spell as well. This is a solid collective performance from KKR bowlers. Five bowlers used and all among wickets. RR never looked ahead in chase. KKR still afloat in tournament, by a whisker.
Preview: Eoin Morgan and Steve Smith will be under pressure as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) face each other in their final match of the round-robin stage at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.
Both teams are on 12 points from 13 matches and need a win to keep hopes alive for a spot in the playoffs.
RR are coming into the match after a superb win against Kings XI Punjab so they will look to make most of the winning momentum. In terms of net run-rate, Rajasthan (-0.377) are also better than Kolkata (-0.467) so a victory will be crucial in their efforts to make it to the playoffs.
KKR suffered defeats in their previous two matches which seriously dented their chances of securing a top four spot. A positive result on Sunday and the team will end up with 14 points but they will have to wait for other match results to go in their way. The net run-rate is a significant factor and KKR's number is lower than all teams except Chennai Super Kings.
Since it's a must-win for both the teams, expect fierce cricket from both the teams.
