The Kolkata Knight Riders recorded a comfortable win over the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur, thus ending their massive unbeaten streak at home. Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana played key roles in Kolkata Knight Riders’ chase of a 161-run total. Robin Uthappa played a brilliant knock of 48 runs that included 6 fours and 3 sixes. Rana scored 35 and skipper Dinesh Karthik scored 42 runs to see KKR through.

It was brilliant bowling from Tom Curran and Nitish Rana who took 2 wickets each to stem Rajasthan’s run flow in the first innings. Sunil Narine, however, proved to be expensive, with Rajasthan skipper Ajinkya Rahane smashing four 4’s in an over by him.
