Rajasthan Royals (RR) have suffered their fourth defeat in five matches as an all-round display saw Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) stride home by eight wickets. While Harry Gurney dominated with the ball, the opening batsman Chris Lynn ensured that his side had a day-out in Jaipur on Sunday night.
Earlier, Steve Smith scored an unbeaten 73 to anchor the hosts to 139 for 3. It was his first half-century of the season after Ajinkya Rahane & Co. were invited to bat first on a tricky track.

I believe KKR have found a long term seam solution in Harry Gurney.#KKR.

It was likely that @KKRiders will get on a roll after that amazing victory against RCB. They played solid today. 140 was never a big ask but they made it rather easy. Most players getting into form and looking good for the Knight Riders.
