2 in 2 for Stoinis and LSG make it to the playoffs. A great final over for Lucknow. They were under the pump after Rinku Singh’s assault but once he was gone, vanished were the hopes of KKR. A 2-run win and Lucknow become the 2nd team to enter the knockout stages. What a game!!!
A STUNNER BY EVIN LEWIS! That’s unbelievable. One for the highlight reels. Wow, under pressure, full speed and Lewis has grabbed a ripper. We have seen everything tonight.
17 runs off the 18th over bowled by Jason Holder. KKR need 21 runs off the final over. Pressure on both side now. Marcus Stoinis to bowl the 20th over while Rinku Singh has the strike. KKR: 190/6 after 19 overs.
4 overs, 60 runs, 0 wickets: A tough night for Avesh Khan in a crucial game. The right-arm quick tried his efforts but couldn’t leave the impact. Two sixes, one each from Narine and Rinku, in his final over; 17 from it, KKR: 173/6 after 18 overs.
Mohsin to Narine – SIX! A touch short in length, around off, Sunil Narine turns inside the crease and powers it over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. KKR: 156/6 after 17 overs.
Mohsin gets his third. Bowls a slower one, Andre Russell winds up for a big shot down the ground but gets more height than distance. Deepak Hooda catches the ball at the edge of the fence. KKR: 150/6 after 16.4 overs.
Ravi Bishnoi shows the courage to toss it up despite going for a maximum. It’s a googly, landing outside off, Sam Billings skips down the track and tries to heave it over the leg side but misses. Quinton de Kock does the rest neatly. A fine knock from the Englishman but Kolkata needed more from their set batter. KKR: 142/2 after 15.4 overs.
Stoinis serves it a bit fuller and on off, taking the pace off the delivery. Shreyas Iyer is into the lofted shot way too early and ends up skying it towards deep mid-wicket. Deepak Hooda misjudges it a bit at first but takes it eventually. 80 needed now off 38 balls. KKR: 131/4 after 13.4 overs.
Mohsin Khan bowls a great over to put some pressure on the KKR duo of Iyer and Billings. Just 2 singles of it, KKR: 127/3 after 13 overs.
Bishnoi to Billings, SIX!!! That’s the timing of Sam Billings. Tossed up, on middle and leg, Billings dances down the track to meet it on the half-volley and lifts it over the wide long on fence for a biggie. KKR: 110/3 after 10.4 overs.
2 boundaries, a six and a couple of extras; a total of 20 runs came off Avesh Khan’s 2nd over. Sam Billings and Shreyas Iyer are doing every possible thing to keep the chase going smoothly. 10 overs gone, KKR: 99/3
Tossed up, outside off from Gowtham, Nitish Rana tries to hammer it over extra cover to release the pressure but ends up mistiming it aerially towards long off. Marcus Stoinis makes no mistake and this is a big blow to Kolkata. 146 needed off 77 balls.
Now it Krishnappa Gowtham who is facing Rana’s brutality. Three boundaries again in the final over of the powerplay; fifty-up for KKR. Kolkata Knight Riders: 60/2 after 6 overs.
After Nitish Rana’s assault, it’s KKR captain Shreyas Iyer who is taking the LSG bowlers to the cleaners. A boundary to welcome Jason Holder, followed by a maximum over long off and another boundary through fine-leg. Brilliant stuff from the skipper. KKR: 47/5 after 5 overs.
It’s raining boundaries again at the DY Patil Stadium. After losing two early wickets, Nitish Rana has launched an assault on the LSG bowlers. That’s the hammering KKR need to finish the chase of 210. Kolkata Knight Riders: 31/2 after 4 overs.
Mohsin serves it on a length, slower in pace and around leg. Abhijeet Tomar looks to up the ante and flicks it across the line. The ball goes off the toe end of the willow towards the mid-wicket region. The skipper KL Rahul settles under it and takes a simple catch. Kolkata are in a spot of bother at the moment. KKR: 9/2 after 2.4 overs
Abhijeet Tomar goes off the mark with a boundary. Holder offers a bit of width and Tomar latches onto it as he cuts it past the diving short third man fielder for a boundary. KKR: 8/1 after 1.3 overs.
Early breakthrough for Lucknow and you just can’t keep Quinton de Kock out of the game at the moment.
Debutant Abhijeet Tomar and Venkatesh Iyer walk out to begin KKR’s stiff chase of 210. Mohsin Khan opens Lucknow’s bowling attack.
Quinton de Kock continues the assault in the final over. He’s in the zone tonight. A record-breaking display from Lucknow Super Giants. QDK crashes four fours in a row in the final over, bowled by Andre Russell as LSG peel off 19 runs from the 20th over. De Kock finished unbeaten on 170 off 70. KL Rahul made 68* off 51. LSG 210/0 – the highest ever opening partnership in IPL history and the first ever team to bat through an entire innings without losing a wicket.
Earlier, LSG captain Rahul won the coin toss and opted to bat first. LSG made three changes to their playing XI with Evin Lewis, Manan Vohra and Krishnappa Gowtham getting a game while KKR have given debut to Abhijeet Tomar. A win for LSG tonight will seal a playoffs berth for them while KKR have to win to stay in content for a top-four finish.
Kolkata Knight Riders will face Lucknow Super Giants not only aiming for a win but a big one at that to mathematically remain in contention for a playoffs berth. The Shreyas Iyer-led franchise will comes into this match having secured wins in their previous two matches against a side that could have sealed had it managed to win one of their previous two matches. LSG were sitting at the top of the points table before sliding to third thanks to successive defeats. However, a win tonight will be enough for them to seal a playoffs berth. The last time these two squared off, LSG recorded a massive 75-run win at the MCA Stadium in Pune.
