IPL 2018: Rajasthan vs Kolkata Match Report

Apart from the wicketkeeper-batsman, who has scored 548 runs, none of their batsmen have been consistent. "It's about taking one game at a time and play well", Kallis told reporters on the eve of their match against Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens. "The intent was positive from the team. We thought 175-180 was a par score on this wicket", Rahane said at the post match press conference. All batsmen will have to take responsibility. But you need to keep changing in a format like T20.

"I discussed with him after the match". I felt really happy when he complimented me for my performance.

"I spoke to him after the match". But I am here today as I realised this was the time when a true fan must show up to be by the side of the team. We thought 175-180 was the score possible on this wicket. From 63/0 around the fifth over mark, the Royals spectacularly lost their way and got bowled out for 142.

Young chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav said the presence of his idol, legendary Shane Warne in the Rajasthan Royals dug-out has motivated him to produce his career-best performance in the Indian Premier League. Rahane himself faced 12 of those 15 balls, which may have helped disrupt some of Buttler's rhythm.

Rajasthan were slow to get off the blocks and nearly put themselves out of reckoning before some individual brilliance from England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler catapulted them back into reckoning. Stokes returned to bowl the 16th over and added to his tally the wicket Lynn, to eventually finish with figures of 4-1-15-3.

He made one jump a little more on Buttler to have the opener caught at short third man, playing a reverse sweep. Their opening combinations might have cost Royals a few games in the first half of the season, but it is the lack of runs from the middle order which has hurt them the most.

Dinesh Karthik, the Kolkata skipper, too heaped praised on the 23-year-old left-arm wrist spinner.

Kolkata opener Chris Lynn then struck 45 and captain Dinesh Karthik an unbeaten 41 as the home team reached their target with only four wickets down and two overs to spare. If they win both games, they are assured of qualification regardless of other results.

Narine successfully won a TV lbw referral against Sanju Samson (11) before Yadav had Ben Stokes caught off his own bowling in his last over as Rajasthan slipped to 7-107 in the 14th over. Both the teams will give in their best and looks like it is going to be a cracker of a contest.

"We will miss Stokesy and Jos". Because, as a player, it's everyone's dream to represent their country in the longer format.

They have themselves to blame for putting themselves in such scenario. We were too positive with our batting tonight.
