Kings XI Punjab won by 6 wickets

After Rajasthan Royals registered a win against the Mumbai Indians, CSK was straight sent to the playoffs.

The match started after Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opted to field first.

Both fell to reverse-sweeps off Kuldeep Yadav - Rahane attempting that shot a sign of the pressure those quiet overs had built up - and Royals were 85 for 2 in 9.2 overs. We lost because we didn't apply ourselves in the middle while batting.

Shouldering extra responsibility in the absence of an injured Piyush Chawla (side strain), Yadav's magic arm completely exposed RR's frailty in tackling spin, as his four-for included the prized wicket of Jos Buttler (39 from 22 balls; 5x4, 2x6). "We thought 175-180 was a par score on this wicket". Royals were all out for 142 despite rocketing to 59/0 in four overs riding Buttler and Rahul Tripathi's fireworks.

Opener Chris Lynn then anchored Kolkata to 144-4 with 45 off 42 balls, putting match-winning 48-run partnership with captain Dinesh Karthik, who made an unbeaten 31.

He also made fun of Patriots players for sounding like robots (with a choice word mixed in) during interviews. Oh, and don't bother trying to back up those claims because everyone knows they're B.S.

After just three runs from the first eight balls, Buttler and opening partner Rahul Tripathi (27 off 15) went berserk, striking all of the next 10 deliveries for four or six between them. It's not about any individual. "The start with we got was magnificent". This is T20, so you have to keep changing some things. If MI lose, then they will be knocked out of the tournament and if KXIP loses, then RCB still stand chance due to better run rate. It's not about hoping but believing in your ability.

"Cricket's a amusing game, we all know, but we have to learn from our mistakes and get it right in the one league game we have". Anything can happen in cricket, it's a amusing game. But that did not come before Buttler hammered Shivam Mavi, the India U19 star, for a sequence of 4, 6, 4, 4, 6, 4, a total of 28 runs.

Stokes also underlined his worth by bowling exceptionally well against KKR with his figures reading 3/15. Since then, he has been on such a hot streak that he is now set to depart the IPL early, after being named in England's Test squad. We have got 3-4 overseas players with us, they are equally good. I am really happy for Jos.

KXIP have no chance if they are part of a three-way tie on 12 points each.

But Rahane said Rajasthan have good overseas players to replace the Englishmen. They were eventually bundled out for 142 in 19 overs, presenting a ideal opportunity to Kolkata Knight Riders to edge closer to the Playoffs. Rahane lauded his bowlers led by Stokes for their effort in trying to defend 142. "Hence, I travelled all the way from Malda just for this one", said Joydeb Sarkar, an English Honours student, who plans to sleep at the Howrah station waiting room on Tuesday night before heading back home by the morning train. I always wanted to do well in front of him.
