HIGHLIGHTS Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2020: KKR beat RR by 60 runs in Dubai

23:12 IST: KKR beat RR by 60 runs. This means RR finish bottom of the table and CSK escape getting the wooden spoon.

23:07 IST: Mavi to Tyagi, OUT! Caught and bowled and RR's ninth wicket go down. 

23:03 IST: Nagarkoti to Archer, OUT! Skies it high only to find Mavi at long-on. RR go 8 down

22:58 IST: They know that we know...

22:56 IST: With the margin of victory now assured to be less than 80, KKR will hope MI beat SRH. If the reverse happens, it will be down to NRR to decide between KKR and the loser of DC and RCB

22:44 IST: Varun to Tewatia, OUT! Looking for the boundary, skies it off the top edge and he walks back for 31. 

22:43 IST: DC and RCB shouting 13 more to RR

22:41 IST: Cummins ends his spell with 4 for 34. Tremendous job done by the Aussie tonight for KKR. He didn't start well in IPL 2020, and blew hot and cold throughout the tournament, but picked wickets when KKR needed him the most

22:33 IST: DC and RCB looking to strike a deal with RR, wanting them to add 24 runs more to the board, eh? That would save both the teams surely. 

22:29 IST: DC and RCB looking worried now. RR still 111 runs behind. 

22:25 IST: Varun to Buttler, OUT! Looked to pull it over midwicket, but failed to get the distance. Cummins takes it comfortably in the deep. 

22:23 IST: Varun to Buttler, FOUR! Takes the outside edge and flies past the skipper for a boundary to the third-man region

22:21 IST: Nagarkoti to Buttler, FOUR! Fuller and smacked over mid-off for a boundary.

22:13 IST: Narine to Buttler. SIX! Lofted ooff his back foot over long-on. 

22:12 IST: That margin of victory mentioned before would then imply that SRH vs MI will be a dead rubber. 

22:09 IST: Nagarkoti to Buttler, FOUR! Short and pulled away behind square leg

22:08 IST: If KKR win by 79 runs tonight, they might just go from the eighth spot in the table to the second, meaning their NNR will be better than Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

22:07 IST: Two overs of spin and RR manage to add only eight more runs. Asking rate is now well above 11. KKR are simply dominating the proceedings. 

21:55 IST: Cummins to Parag, OUT! FOURTH WICKET FOR CUMMINS! Short-pitched from Cummins and Riyan Parag was a little taken aback by the length. He tries to pull it but takes his eyes off the delivery, finds the edge and Karthik takes another good catch. Half the side down in five overs!

21:54 IST: Cummins to Buttler, FOUR! Too much width from Cummins and Buttler opens his arms, drives past extra cover and mid-off for a much-needed boundary.

21:52 IST: WICKET-MAIDEN from Shivam Mavi! KKR are in firm control after conceding 19 runs off the first over.

21:48 IST: Mavi to Samson, OUT! Rajasthan Royals are falling like a pack of cards here. Another thick-edge off an attempted drive and Karthik's safe hands behind the wickets send Samson back in the pavilion. Royals in big trouble.

21:45 IST: Cummins to Smith, OUT! BOWLED! What a comeback from Cummins after being hit for the most expensive opening over of this edition. Bowls a little outside off stump this time and keeps the delivery on good length, Smith goes for a cut off square but finds an inside-edge. The ball rolls back to the stumps.

21:44 IST: Cummins to Smith, FOUR! Bowls to the body and Smith uses the pace of the ball to flick it towards the long leg boundary.

21:41 IST: Cummins to Stokes, OUT! WHAT A CATCH BY DINESH KARTHIKAnother contender for the catch of the tournament right there. Cummins comes around the wicket and gives width, keeps a little fuller. Stokes goes for a drive and finds a thick edge and Cummins takes an absolutely stunning diving catch towards his left.

21:38 IST: Mavi to Stokes, FOUR! Cuts it square between point and cover. 

21:32 IST: Cummins to Uthappa, OUT! WHAT AN OVER! Uthappa went for the glory shot as he flicks it with intention to hit at deep midwicket. However, he hits a lot squarer and Nagarkoti takes the catch.

21:30 IST: Cummins to Stokes, SIX! Stokes was ready for the lap shot. Uses the pace of Cummins and sends the ball to the same area for six.

21:29 IST: Cummins to Stokes, FOUR! Wanted to drive towards covers but finds a thick inside-edge. The ball races towards the deep fine leg boundary.

21:27 IST: Cummins to Uthappa, SIX! WHAT A START! Uthappa has slammed the ball hard over the third man boundary.

21:25 IST: Robin Uthappa and Ben Stokes to open. Pat Cummins to bowl the first over.

21:12 IST: Kolkata Knight Riders never gave up on their aggressive intent even after losing regular wickets and Eoin Morgan's unbeaten 68-run innings has steered KKR to a strong total. 

21:10 IST: Tyagi to Morgan, SIX! Morgan denies single on two deliveries prior to this ball, and will be breathing a sigh of relief as he connects this on the middle of the bat. Straight over the bowler's head for a six.

21:06 IST: Tyagi to Cummins, OUT! Full and a little wide, Cummins fails to get the middle of it. Knicks it for Sanju Samson behind the wicket.

21:05 IST: Stokes to Morgan, FOUR! 24 RUNS OFF THE OVER! Finds the space between backward point and fly slip this time.

21:04 IST: Stokes to Morgan, SIX! This has gone straight over bowler's head! Third six of the over. Poor delivery from Stokes - right into the slot and Morgan puts it over bowler's head.

21:03 IST: Stokes to Morgan, SIX! FIFTY FOR MORGAN! Makes room for himself and puts it past the fielder at long-on. Morgan reaches his fifth IPL fifty in 30 balls.

21:02 IST: Stokes to Cummins, SIX! Fullish knuckle delivery and Cummins has smacked it hard over the long-off boundary.

21:01 IST: Only 12 runs from the last 2 overs. The good thing for KKR is that Archer's overs are finished. Morgan-Cummins will be aiming to finish KKR's innings on a high.

20:55 IST: Stokes to Morgan, FOUR! A boundary off the final ball but a good over from Stokes -- only six off it. Morgan cuts it square to get the four.

20:48 IST: Tyagi to Russell, OUT! Change of line and Tyagi gets the wicket! Keeps it a little wide and fuller and Russell hits it towards deep point. Fails to clear the man at the position, however.

20:47 IST: Tyagi to Russell, SIX! Another poor delivery from Tyagi and Russell obliges. Half volley in the slot again and Russell goes over long off. 

20:46 IST: Tyagi to Russell, SIX! That's the Russell we know! Although it's a poor ball from Tyagi. Half-volley outside off and Russell goes over the long-on.

20:43 IST: Archer to Russell, SIX! Russell joins the show now. Short-pitched from Archer and Russell pulls it towards deep square leg.

20:40 IST: Gopal to Morgan, SIX! WOW! Morgan takes the aerial route again and this time, goes towards the leg-side. Clears the cow corner by a mile.

20:40 IST: Gopal to Morgan, SIX! Morgan is in no mood of slowing down. Hits it straight over the long-off boundary.

20:39 IST: Gopal to Morgan, FOUR! Morgan dispatches it towards the deep extra cover this time.

20:39 IST: Gopal to Morgan, FOUR! Dew factor making the difference already. Wide outside off and Morgan smacks it straight.

20:31 IST: Tewatia to Karthik, OUT! Karthik's misery continues. The former KKR captain departs on his very first delivery. Intended to push the ball towards cover but finds a thick inside-edge. Steve Smith gets a gift of a catch at silly mid-on.

20:29 IST: Tewatia to Morgan, FOUR! Morgan going with the aggressive intent and it's not surprising. The dew has already started to make a difference and will only favour the batting side more as the game proceeds. Morgan goes towards the leg side and clears the deep midwicket area.

20:27 IST: Gopal to Tripathi, OUT! Quicker from Gopal and Tripathi pulls it. However, he fails to find the distance. Caught at deep square leg.

20:17 IST: Tyagi to Morgan, SIX! The KKR captain was the ready for the short ball. Hooks it past deep fine leg for a brilliant maximum!

20:15 IST: Tewatia to Narine, OUT! Two wickets in an over and RR are back in the game! Narine goes for a big shot towards long on but Ben Stokes takes a good catch. 

20:09 IST: Tewatia to Gill, OUT! Gill goes for a shot over deep midwicket but fails to clear the boundary. Jos Buttler takes the catch at the position.

20:07 IST: Tewatia to Tripathi, FOUR! Too short and wide -- a recipe for disaster for the bowler. Tripathi happily stetches his arms and cuts it square.

20:01 IST: Tewatia to Tripathi, SIX! That wasn't a bad ball but Rahul Tripathi steps out and plays with a straight bat. In line of wicket, pitched up and Tripathi charges down the track to send the ball over long-on.

19:58 IST: Rajasthan Royals bowling so far:

Jofra Archer: 2-0-3-1

Others: 4-0-52-0

19:54 IST: Aaron to Tripathi, FOUR! Aaron contines to bowl short and the KKR batsmen continue to oblige. Tripathi makes room for himself and cuts it square. 

19:52 IST: Stokes to Tripathi, SIX! Short-pitched and Tripathi has pulled it hard towards deep square leg. There was a fielder at the position but the ball is way beyond his reach.

19:49 IST: Gopal to Tripathi, FOUR! Bizarre captaincy. Fourth boundary of the over, Tripathi goes to the midwicket which remains empty. Jofra Archer being let down again..

19:47 IST: Gopal to Tripathi, FOUR! Tripathi gets into the act now. Brilliant sweep shot from the batsman. The decision to give Gopal an over in powerplay might throw away the momentum for RR.

19:46 IST: Gopal to Gill, FOUR! Gets into the position and pulls it away towards deep midwicket. Ben Stokes tries his best to save but fumbles at the end, as ball touches the boundary.

19:45 IST: Gopal to Gill, FOUR! Steve Smith brings Shreyas Gopal in powerplay, which is a bit surprising. Gill slams it towards long-off.

19:40 IST: Aaron to Gill, FOUR! Brilliant pull shot from the youngster. Shubman looked ready for the short-pitched delivery, pulls it towards the vast space at midwicket.

19:39 IST: Aaron to Gill, FOUR! WHAT A SHOT! Flick of the wrist from Gill. Marginally outside off and Gill flicks it towards deep midwicket.

19:38 IST: Aaron to Gill, FOUR! Pulled towards backwart square leg. First boundary of KKR innings.

19:31 IST: Archer to Rana, OUT! WHAT A START! Rana takes review at the last second. REVIEW WASTED. There's a spike when the ball goes past Rana's bat. Poor review from Rana. KKR loses first wicket in the second ball!

19:29 IST: Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana to open for Kolkata Knight Riders. Jofra Archer to bowl the first over.

19:25 IST: The winner goes to fourth position tonight. The loser would most likely join Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab in becoming a third team to be eliminated.

19:12 IST: Good news for both KKR and RR: CSK beat KXIP by nine wickets and knock them out of the race to the playoffs. 

19:11 IST: KKR skipper Eoin Morgan: We would have prefered to chase. It's not a night for holding back and on top of that we need to improve the NRR. He (Andre Russell) is back and it is great to have him back and so let's hope tonight is the night. Lockie is out. Rinku Singh misses out and Shivam Mavi comes in. As a side you want to get into a position to win the game and then think about other (NRR) scenarios

19:10 IST: Here is the playing XI of the two sides...

Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan(c), Dinesh Karthik(w), Andre Russell, Rahul Tripathi, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy

Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson(w), Steven Smith(c), Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Varun Aaron, Kartik Tyagi

19:05 IST: RR skipper Steve Smith: We will bowl first, dew seems to be coming in and that's the big reason. We have bowled well majority of the tournament and hopefully we will go well tonight. The games we haven't done well, our senior batters haven't done well and fortunately Stokes and Samson are in good nick. We are unchanged.

19:01 IST: Rajasthan Royals win toss, opt to bowl against Kolkata Knight Riders in Dubai

18:53 IST: Good news for KKR, Andre Russell is fit for tonight's game.

18:50 IST: Jos Buttler: At the moment it's all about trying to get a win and if things transpire in a certain way, we have to win in a certain fashion. We can control only what we can. We have played two good games back to back, and we have to win again tonight to give ourselves a chance. When a guy like Ben (Stokes) comes back into the team that brings great balance. He has looked great at the crease in the last couple of games. He's an imposing figure at the top of the order, may his form continue. Every team is a good team in this competition, looks like Russell is back in their team, he's the danger man in the opposition. We have nothing to lose, hopefully we go out there and have a good game.

18:47 IST: With KXIP's playoff hopes diminishing, RR and KKR are both happy. KXIP need to defend 36 more off the remaining five overs. 

18:41 IST: RR need their skipper Steve Smith to click today. He has scored only 307 runs in 233 balls in IPL 2020. Against KKR, he had scored 3 off 7 in their previous meeting this season. 

18:39 IST: Kolkata Knight Riders all set for their final league game. Can they make the difference today? 

18:32 IST: Just a small update on the KXIP vs CSK game: The openers added 82 on board in reply to KXIP's 153 for six and now CSK have moved past 100.

Brief Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders, who have incurred a topsy-turvy journey in the UAE throughout IPL 2020, saw a ray of hope after Rajasthan Royals defeated Kings XI Punjab. But it will be the same Steve Smith's men who will want to see witness the glimmer of hope when they take on KKR in a must-win tie in Dubai. Both need to win the tie while also hoping that KXIP lose to Chennai Super Kings and SRH lose to Mumbai Indians.
