“KKR fans have lost the right to troll RCB!” Fans React as RR Stun KKR

Having been reduced to 123/6 with 54 more runs needed, the situation may have spelt panic for other teams. But not for Rajasthan.

The Englishman then scored 10 in the first two balls of the last over in front of a muted Eden Gardens stadium to help the Royals script a memorable 3-wicket win.

Earlier in the day, skipper Dinesh Karthik had hit a massive knock of 97 runs to rebuff criticisms over his form going into the World Cup. However, the bowlers’ inability to capitalize on early wickets proved costly for the home team. KKR have now lost 6 games in a row and they remain rooted to the 6th position.
