Rajasthan Royals continued their winning form with a convincing 19 run win over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Defending a modest 144, the RR bowlers put on a good show to bowl out KKR for 125 to script their second win of the tournament.
Chasing 145, KKR started off briskly with Gautam Gambhir giving the charge to Sreesanth and depositing him for a six in the very first over. Rahul Shukla struck twice in the third over, first bowling Manvinder Bisla (1) before having Jaques Kallis (0) caught behind. Siddharth Trivedi then further sunk KKR dismissing Gambhir (22) and Manoj Tiwary (14) in quick succession. Yusuf Pathan (0) fell the very next over to Kevon Cooper leaving KKR reeling at 44 for 5.
Laxmi Shukla (2) fell to Trivedi handing him his third wicket. Eoin Morgan (51) who was given an early reprieve by Shane Watson on 2, made the most of it smashing Rahul Shukla for a boundary and a six off the 14th over. KKR lost Rajat Bhatia (12) holing out at deep midwicket off Shaun Tait, before Sreesanth picked up Brett Lee (5).
Needing 23 runs from the last two overs, Cooper sealed the match taking the wicket of the well set Morgan who was slow to begin but played some sparkling strokes once he had his eye in. KKR were finally bowled out for 125 runs, 19 short of RR’s total.
Earlier in the evening, KKR won the toss and elected to field. Lee struck first having the dangerous Watson (5) caught at short extra cover. Ajinkya Rahane hit two consecutive boundaries off Mohammad Shami, but RR struggled to find momentum and managed just 35 runs in the power play. Bhatia bowled Rahul Dravid (17) to give KKR their second wicket. Stuart Binny (14) followed soon after out leg before to Laxmi Shukla.
Rahane put his foot on the pedal hitting Mohammad Shami for a six, as RR took 14 runs of his over, but KKR struck back with Sunil Narine striking twice. He first removed Rahane (36) caught behind before having Kevon Cooper stumped. Brad Hodge (46*) struck a few lusty blows to push forward RR's score. He found an ideal companion in Dishant Yagnik (16) who smashed a six and a boundary of Narine to score 18 runs of the 19th over. RR eventually finished at 144 for 6 from their 20 overs.
Man-of-the-Match: Siddharth Trivedi
Brief Scores: Rajasthan Royals 144 for 6 in 20.0 overs (Brad Hodge 45*, Sunil Narine 2-28) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 125 all out in 20.0 overs (Eoin Morgan 51, Siddharth Trivedi 3-23) by 19 runs.
Sun Risers Hyderabad won their second match on the trot defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in an exciting Super Over at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. The match went to the very last over and SRH, needing 2 of the last ball, tied the match to take it to the Super Over.
In the Super Over, SRH batting first, managed to score 20 runs as Cameron White thumped R Vinay Kumar for two sixes and then Dale Steyn came on for SRH and gave away only 15 runs despite Chris Gayle's six, that kept RCB in the hunt off the penultimate ball.
Earlier chasing 131, SRH started on a lucky note as Parthiv Patel was dropped early by Chris Gayle but he failed capitalise on it as Moises Henriques had Patel edge to the wicket-keeper. Henriques struck again in his next over sending back White (5).
Akshath Reddy (23) and Hanuma Vihari (44*) started to build a partnership before the former was bowled by Muttiah Muralitharan. Jaydev Unadkat struck twice to dismiss Kumar Sangakara (16) and Thisara Perera to get RCB back into the match. Vinay then ran out Amit Mishra, before Ashish Reddy (14) dismissed him for a six and a boundary in the 18th over.
Needing seven runs of the very last over, RCB's hero from the match against MI, Vinay dismissed Reddy of the first ball. Some frantic running from SRH got them down requiring 2 runs off the last ball. The batsmen ran the final ball through to the keeper to tie the match.
Earlier RCB won the toss and chose to bat. Vihari struck with his very first delivery having Gayle (1) edge to the wicket-keeper. Ishant Sharma then got into the act sneaking through Tillakaratne Dilshan's (5) defense, and shattering his stump. SRH bowlers strangled the flow of runs and at the halfway stage RCB had scored only 55 runs.
Virat Kohli (46) and Henriques got on with the task of rebuilding the innings putting on 43 runs before Ashish Reddy got rid of Kohli caught of his own bowling. Mayank Agarwal (7) was given a lifeline when Ishant Sharma dropped him at deep wicket but he failed to capitalise on it and fell to Dale Steyn the next over. Henriques (44) who had played aggressively fell in the search of quick runs and RCB eventually finished at 130 for 8 from their 20 overs.
