KKR vs RR Highlights: Kolkata Snap Losing Streak with 7-wicket Win Over Rajasthan

Finally, Kolkata have broken their losing run! This was not an easy chase but they have managed to get over the line! Chasing a moderate score, Aaron Finch and Baba Indrajith departed early. However, Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana then steadied the ship. The two went along things slowly at first but then pressed on the gas when needed. Their stand took Kolkata on top. Iyer fell but Rana continued and he along with Rinku put up a match-winning stand. Rinku Singh played brilliantly and one has to believe, it is his knock that took Kolkata over the line.

Rajasthan were excellent with the ball in the first 10 overs. They managed to keep the run flow in check and also got a couple of wickets. However, the over from Ravichandran Ashwin where Rana took the attack to him, changed the course of the game. From there on, they failed to control the flow of boundaries. Chahal and Ashwin did not have the best of days. Boult was good and so was Prasidh but they needed the two spinners to perform which did not happen.

While Tim Southee was the pick of the bowlers for KKR with two crucial wickets of Jos Buttler and Riyan Parag.

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Shreyas Iyer won the toss and elected to bowl against Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Kolkata made two changes to their XI as Venkatesh Iyer and Harshit Rana made places for Anukul Roy and Shivam Mavi. While Rajasthan Royal brought back Karun Nair to their XI as Daryl Mitchell got dropped.

Shreyas Iyer and Co. are in desperate search of a win after losing five matches on a trot and next they face a tough challenge in Rajasthan Royals who have been sensational this season.

KKR have to win almost every match from here to challenge for a place in the playoffs. They have lost some close contests in the past couple of occasions which affected their position on the points table. The batting has been a huge concern for KKR as after 9 matches they are yet to find the best opening combination for them.

While Yuzvendra Chahal is topping the charts of Purple Cap with 19 wickets. The duo were the standout performers for Rajasthan Royals when they played Kolkata Knight Riders earlier this season. Buttler slammed a majestic century while Chahal claimed a fifer which also included a hat-trick.
