    FOUR! Prasidh Krishna to Krishnappa Gowtham. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. All consolation stuff. Gowtham flaps and top edges down to the fine leg fence for four.

    It was looking like Rajasthan were on course to chase this down at the halfway point of their innings, but things started to stumble after the Sanju Samson wicket. Kuldeep Yadav was brilliant with the ball, and really got that reuqired run rate increasing to put the pressure onto the batsmen. Andre Russell was the man for KKR with the bat. Without him, it would've been a much tighter game.

    So KKR go through to the second qualifier against the Sunrisers. That will be played on Friday. The Royals, though, have been dumped out.

    OUT! Caught. Prasidh Krishna to Stuart Binny. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, mis-timed to square leg, by Lynn. It could be game over for Rajasthan now. Binny struggling to get going from the off. He doesn't pick the slower delivery, is through the shot way too early, and ends up just chipping it into the hands of square leg. Marvellous bowling from Krishna.

  • 16.5

    OUT! Caught. Piyush Chawla to Sanju Samson. Top spinning length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Scantlebury-Searles. Big wicket for KKR. The set batsman goes. Samson gets the length he was after to attack, but doesn't strike it cleanly. A wlid swing comes off the bottom end of the bat, and nestles into the hands of long on. KKR are in the driving seat now.
