The next match will be between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. While opener Rahul Tripathi was dropped at the first ball of the innings and two runs were produced in the first over, Tripathi along with Jos Butler added 47 runs in the next two overs. Kuldeep Yadav got Butler next who was in killer form. How many runs will he score today?
Kolkata stayed in the No. 3 spot with 14 points and will meet Sunrisers Hyderabad in its last league match. "The intent was positive from the team. But this being a do-ordie match and the last home match in the group league stage, I managed a ticket from a friend and somehow reached the ground just on time", said Dasgupta, a resident of Behala. All batsmen will have to take responsibility.
"We still have to believe in ourselves".
"I discussed with him after the match". "I am a big fan of him (Warne)". Samson looked in good touch in the previous game, and is the only other RR batsman to have any semblance of success this season.
In T20 format, a bowler tends to get into experimentation and more so if one experiences an off-day. We have to learn from our mistakes.

Kuldeep Yadav scalped a four-wicket haul against Rajasthan Royals. The England all-rounder, who, along with Buttler, will now bid adieu to the IPL because of his Test commitments, had an excellent game with the ball, taking 3/15 in four overs. They have included Ish Sodhi, Anureet Singh and Rahul Tripathi.
"He started really well in this match too".
Rahane admitted that they have not batted well this season as they should have posted something around 175-180 yesterday, especially after the magnificent start provided by Buttler and Tripathi.
He made one jump a little more on Buttler to have the opener caught at short third man, playing a reverse sweep. It was in the left-arm spinner's next over though that he dealt the visitors with a body blow. Chris Lynn (45 from 42) batted well within himself, as has been the case this IPL, while captain Dinesh Karthik finished things off with an unbeaten 41 from 31 deliveries. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are on a roll with a hat-trick of wins and with same points (12). In those four wickets, scalps of risky Jos Butler, Ajinkya Rahane and Ben Stokes were also included. "Both teams are coming to confidence, so it's going to boil down who executes better on the day". "We will miss them", he said. Because, as a player, it's everyone's dream to represent their country in the longer format. Once they found the opening they needed, the bowlers applied the squeeze and built pressure. Even Stokes - his all-round skills and his inputs. And all I have to do is make sure he is turned on. We still have a chance.
