IPL 2020 Highlights, KKR vs RR Match, Full Cricket Score: Knight Riders win by 60 runs, knock Royals out of tournament

23:43 (IST)

That's it from us as well for tonight. KKR win by 60 runs and stay alfoat in tournament. RR were never in the chase from the start, courtesy a great collective bowling show from KKR bowlers. Morgan led from the front as well with a brilliant knock in the first innings. Now, they will hope SRH lose to MI on Tuesday for berth in playoffs. 

23:41 (IST)

Pat Cummins: My first two balls weren’t great. As long as you go back to trying to bowl your best ball, not get caught up in the moment. Always is top of the stumps, just outside off. Just trying to put as many balls in there as possible. It was a day where everything fell in place after that first over. Put a lot of pressure on myself. First game, didn’t feel I bowled that well. Feel like I’m bowling better and better with each game in the tournament.

23:39 (IST)

Pat Cummins is the Player of the Match for his haul of 4/34!

23:39 (IST)

Eoin Morgan, KKR captain: I thought it was the par score. Every batsman said that the wicket was beautiful to bat on. We lost wickets from 10 to 15 overs , we did well to finish where we did. We aimed at playing agressive way anyway. Imposing the way we did, I am very happy with it. We told our guys to take little bit of risk with the bat. We felt the good length was the best to bowl. To keep as simple as possible regardless of how Royals come after us. Great to see Cummins setting the tone. Winning the game was all about taking wickets. RR have world class players and you need to get them out to win. I was aware of the number (cut off mark). We tried to maximise on opportunities.

23:29 (IST)

RR finishes at the last position now and CSK finishes at the seventh position

Steve Smith, Rajasthan Royals captain: I thought it was probably 180. There was a bit of dew. Losing four wickets in the powerplay, it’s always going to be tough. No one got going, and it was an unfortunate end for us. (On Cummins) Bowled nice lengths. We got off to a flier, and we lost wickets in clumps tonight. (On campaign) Started really well, won our first two games. In the middle we were just a bit inconsistent. Our batters, especially the top order were consistent. Couple of real positives. Jofra was pretty much superb in every game, whether with bat or ball. Tewatia, he pulled a few out of the hat in the tournament. Unfortunately, not enough of us were able to support them this year. The ones where you sort of win out of nowhere sort of make your season, but you also need to win the ones that you should be winning. It’s been great. The BCCI and everyone involved here have done a great job. We’ve come here and done what we loved, and hope we’v put on smiles on a few faces, especially in India. Organisers have done a terrific job.

23:16 (IST)

After 20 overs,Rajasthan Royals 131/9 ( Shreyas Gopal 23 , Varun Aaron 0)

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. Nagarkoti completes his spell as well. This is a solid collective performance from KKR bowlers. Five bowlers used and four of them among wickets. RR never looked ahead in chase. KKR still afloat in tournament, by a whisker.

23:11 (IST)

After 19 overs,Rajasthan Royals 129/9 ( Shreyas Gopal 22 , Varun Aaron 0)

Mavi completes his spell. A wicket in the last over of the spell for him in form of Tyagi. He gave just 15 from his four and picked up two wickets. Just one over left. RR need 63. Let's see how many they can get and also whether they bat through the 20. 

23:08 (IST)

OUT! Ninth wickets goes down for RR as Mavi takes a completes a terrific caught and bowl to dismiss Kartik Tyagi. Good reflex catch and brains to hold on to it. One wicket left for KKR to seal the win. Kartik Tyagi c and b Shivam Mavi 2(3)

23:05 (IST)

After 18 overs,Rajasthan Royals 127/8 ( Shreyas Gopal 21 , Kartik Tyagi 1)

Nagarkoti picks up a wicket in his third over in form of Archer. Kartik Tyagi, right hand bat, comes in to bat. Gets off the mark on the first ball he faces. KKR would be looking to bowl RR out in the next 12 balls.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals latest updates: That's it. KKR win this big match by 60 runs.

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.
