KKR vs RR IPL 2024 Highlights: Jos Buttler's 7th IPL ton takes Rajasthan Royals to miraculous win vs KKR

The top-of-the-table clash between the Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders felt like two boxers were going at each other, relentlessly and the one who was able to throw more punches came out on top. Jos Buttler with his 7th ton made Sunil Narine's monumental effort go to waste as RR won.

KKR vs RR IPL 2024 Highlights: Jos Buttler's 7th IPL ton takes Rajasthan Royals to miraculous win vs KKR

Rajasthan Royals recorded joint-highest successful chase in IPL, equalling their own record as Jos Buttler stood up on the night that mattered despite struggling with the cramps to not only smash his 7th century in the tournament but to take his side to their sixth win against KKR at Eden Gardens. Buttler was left alone to take care of the chase in the last three overs and he calculated it to the final ball, despite the cramps and despite having to farm the strike and he did it. Rajasthan Royals are now firmly at the top of the table with 12 points while Kolkata Knight Riders are in sort of a muddle in the top four with Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad, with fours wins and two losses.

    KKR vs RR IPL 2024 live: Shreyas Iyer at toss

    Would have loved to bowl as well based on the last game, on how the ball moved around. Whenever he (Narine) comes in, he is hard to read and he's got that poker face all throughout, we want him to perform him the way he has. We are playing the same team.

  • 7:06 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    KKR vs RR Live match: Sanju Samson at toss

    KKR vs RR pitch report

    "There's a disparity of 12 metres square of the wicket - 59m and 71m; down the ground - 75m. Expect the bowlers to be defending on the bigger side. We've seen some contrasting matches here so far - 208 narrowly defended, 161 quite easily chased. I think it (pitch) is pretty similar to what we saw the other day. We thought 190 was par, that was a day game, this is a night game. There's going to be some dew, it's extremely humid out here as well. Both teams will be looking to chase. It's a really good surface. You've got a lightning fast outfield, the boundaries are pretty consistent, nice even pitch, you want to bat at any stage. Maximise the new ball on a surface like this while it's rock hard," Samuel Badree and Michael Clarke said at the pitch report

  • 6:46 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik
