IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Highlights:

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Highlights: Jos Buttler almost single-handedly led Rajasthan Royals to a record-equalling chase of 224 against the Kolkata Knight Riders with an unbeaten 107 off 60 balls. Buttler battled cramps in the last over to knock off the winning runs and RR equalled the record for highest succesfull run chase in the IPL, which they themselves had set last year. The England captain started the last over with a six off the first ball, he then had to turn down runs off the next four balls, thus bringing the equation down to RR needing three runs to win off the last two balls. Buttler then hobbled two runs off the second last ball of the match and took a single off the last and thus took RR to a record-equalling chase. ...Read More

Earlier, Sunil Narine equalled the record for the fastest IPL century for a Kolkata Knight Riders player as he took the Rajasthan Royals bowlers, particularly the spin duo Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin, to the cleaners. He got to his century in 49 balls, his first ton in any kind of senior cricket. Narine eventually fell to Trent Boult in the 18th over, having smashed 109 in 56 balls. KKR ended up with a score of 223/6 in 20 overs batting first.  

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were put to bat first with Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain Sanju Samson winning the toss and choosing to field. RR's much vaunted bowling attack managed to keep KKR's dangerous opening pair of Phil Salt and Sunil Narine down. Salt eventually fell in the fourth over due to a stunning catch from Avesh Khan off his own bowling. Narine then managed to make some amends in the remaining two overs and guided KKR to a score of 56/1 in the powerplay. Narine and Angkrish Raghuvanshi then took down Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal and RR ended up soaring past 100 in the first 10 overs.

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: Are you not entertained? 

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: Two utterly ridiculous run feasts on back to back days in the IPL. In one, the team with the record total managed to just about defend it, in the other the chasing team equalled their own record for highest succesfull run chase. Rovman Powell, the West Indies T20 captain, tells the broadcasters that he has been pleading with Sunil Narine to come out of retirement for the T20 World Cup, he has been asking other West Indies players in the IPL to put in a world with Narine as well. Wonder if we will see Narine walking out to open the innings for the West Indies now in the T20 World Cup later this year. That is for later though, for now, we can only wonder where the game of cricket is going if a total of 224 can be chased down in 20 overs. In two days, the IPL has got cricket fans asking deep questions like these. Extraordinary stuff. Join us tomorrow when Gujarat Titans host the Delhi Capitals. Good night!

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler is the player of the match

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: "Keep believing, that was the real key today. At times, felt like I was struggling a bit for rhythm. Actually have been watching the golf and I saw a guy called Max Holmes. Anytime the negative thoughts come, I think the complete opposite and dare to dream. That's what kept me going. At times you feel frustrated or you are questioning yourself. I was trying to tell myself it'd be okay, keep going, you'll get your rhythm back and try to stay calm. There's been plenty of times throughout the IPL, you've seen crazy things happen. Guys like Dhoni and Kohli, the way they stay till the end and keep believing, you've seen it so many times in the IPL and I was trying to do the same. That's something Kumar Sangakkara has told me a lot - there's always a little breaking point. The worst thing you can do when you are not feeling your best is to fight it and try to force the issue and give your wicket away. He just tells me to stay there and at some point, the momentum will change or you'll find your rhythm or one shot will get you going. That's been a big part of my play over the last few years - try to stay the course and not get in my own way. (His greatest IPL innings?) I would think so. Anytime you're not out at the end to see your team through, especially off the last ball, in a big run-chase, very satisfying."

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson is the winning captain once again

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: "Very happy with the win. We were wondering like the wickets we lost ... six down and then Rovman came in and hit those couple of sixes and that's when we felt like we were still in the game. It's a beautiful way to come back, some luck also, it's a very funny game. They also played really well. Expected something similar, an exciting game tonight, very happy for it. The quality of spin which they had in Sunil Narine and Varun Chakaravarthy, they bowled really well. This ground and the wicket actually was suiting them really well. We were wondering where can get those couple of sixes and that's when Rovman came in. Jos did what he does for us from last 6-7 years, very happy for him. It (Buttler's knock) should go right on top. Being an opener, if Jos gets in, we all know at the dug-out that he'll be there till the 20th over. If he's batting till the 20th over, no runs are unchaseable. He does something special."

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: Shreyas Iyer reacts

IPL 2024 KKR vs RR Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals: “I would second that actually (it is a bitter pill to swallow), emotions were a roller coaster, certainly didn’t think we will get into this situation. It’s a funny game at the end of the day, he was striking the ball cleanly and timing them so well, have to take it on the chin and move on. I mean at this point of time you see that you bowl your best deliveries, a little bit hit or miss and you are sent out of the ground, it’s good that it happened now rather than it happening in the later stages of the tournament, good learning for us. (On Sunil Narine) He is a great asset to the team and he is showing it every game, he is that kind of player who capitalizes on each and every moment. I'm glad that he is a part of our team. Since he was striking it so well, I thought let’s take pace off the ball and gave it to Chakaravarthy and it’s high pressure when you have five fielders inside the circle, you basically don’t have idea where to bowl. It’s just about relaxing and rejuvenating, it was very humid as well today. It's important to learn from our mistakes and bounce back. We have a few days break. At the end of the day, it was a great game, a few overs here and there but I’m really proud of the boys.”

Samson with a loose drive away from his body off the last ball of the third over by Mitchell Starc, thich edge and goes to Chakravarthy for what should have been a comfortable catch at short third.

Rinku finishes on 20 off nine balls. RR need to chase down a target of 224, which would normally be considered an impossible target to chase but considering what we have seen in the last few days, RR will definitely be fancying their chances here.
