Kolkata Knight Riders turned up the heat in Dubai today, with their skipper leading the easy as they thrashed Rajasthan Royals by 60 runs, and ending their IPL campaign. With this win, KKR are still alive in the competition and are dependent on the results of the next two games.
With Ben Stokes-inspired wins against Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan Royals’ floundering campaign in IPL 2020 is just about alive. As such, they will go into their final league match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Dubai high on confidence. Both Rajasthan and Kolkata have 12 points from 13 games. However, RR have a better run rate than KKR, and thus, a big win for Rajasthan could put them in a reasonable position to qualify. Of course, with a few other sides also likely to finish on 14, it will be a tight race to the finish.
