KKR defeat RR by 86 runs

IPL 2021, KKR vs RR Highlights: Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Rajasthan Royals by 86 runs on Thursday as their bowlers absolutely annihilated the Royals’ batting lineup. Coming on to chase 175 runs, which is the highest score in this ground for this IPL edition, Rajasthan’s batsmen folded like a pack of cards. Rahul Tewatia was the only batsman to try and muster any sort of resistance but the wickets tumbling on the other end made his job almost impossible. Shivam Mavi took four wickets for KKR and Lockie Ferguson took three.

Earlier, KKR made 171 for four as the Royals collapsed for 85 in 16.1 overs. Shubman Gill scored 56 off 44 balls for KKR while his opening partner Venkatesh Iyer made 38 off 35 balls.

Brief scores: KKR 171/4 in 20 overs (Shubman Gill 56; Chris Morris 1/28, Chetan Sakariya 1/23).

Rajasthan Royals 85 all out in 16.1 overs (Rahul Tewatia 44; Lockie Ferguson 3/18, Shivam Mavi 4/21).

And it's all over

Mavi gets his fourth as Rajasthan's last frontier falls. Tewatia is gone. KKR win by 86 runs

22:47 (IST)07 Oct 2021
Sakariya goes. RR 9 down.

And Sakariya has been run out as Rajasthan's 9th wicket falls. A bit of a mix up but KKR won't mind. RR 85/9 after 15.3 overs.

Ferguson's spell ends

22:35 (IST)07 Oct 2021
Tewatia resilient

Tewatia hits another 6. Narine has not had a good game against him. Tewatia is providing the fight on behalf of the RR. 7 off the over. If KKR take Tewatia then it's surely done. RR 74/8 after 13 overs.

22:32 (IST)07 Oct 2021

If Royals make 100 here, Mumbai Indians will have to win by around 160 runs tomorrow.

Now Undakat gives Ferguson the boundary treatment. 4 off the first ball. And revenge. Ferguson gets his third as Unadkat gets caught by Shakib. RR 62/8 after 11.2 overs. This game is as good as done.

22:25 (IST)07 Oct 2021
Tewatia holding down fort

Tewatia comes to the party. Hits a 6. He is the only one holding down the fort. Varun won't be happy. 9 off the over ultimately. RR 58/7 after 11th over.

22:21 (IST)07 Oct 2021
3 boundaries in the 10th over

Tewatia hits back to back boundaries off Mavi. But it's probably too late now. Let's see. And another 4 in the 5th ball. Some fight back at least. Good over for the Royals. 12 off it. RR 49/7 after 10 overs.

22:17 (IST)07 Oct 2021
7th WICKET!!
