Twitter Reactions: Kolkata Knight Riders beat Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in Jaipur

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKT) moved to the top of the points table after they bagged the second win on the trot to take their count to three in the IPL 2018. KKR comprehensively defeated Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur by 7 wickets.

Chasing a target of 161 runs, KKR lost Chris Lynn early but Sunil Narine and Robin Uthappa held the innings together and stitched a stand of 69 runs before Narine was run out for 35 off 25 deliveries.


Later, KKR lost Uthappa for 48, courtesy a brilliant catch from Ben Stokes at long on. But the fall of wickets didn’t really affect the scoring rate of the visitors as Nitish Rana and captain Dinesh Karthik notched up a stand of 61 runs to take their team over the line.

Initially, it was Dinesh Karthik who won the toss and asked the home side to set the target on the board. Ajinkya Rahane started the things in a flash by hammering Sunil Narine for four boundaries in an over. However, the blistering effort from Karthik sent Rahane back and it was the start of the turn out in the match.

None of the Rajasthan batsmen stood firm in the middle thus ended their innings at 160 runs on the board. Interestingly, they never got going despite the in-form batsman staying at the crease.
