Rajasthan Royals got back to the winning ways after beating Kolkata Knight Riders by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. Before the game, both teams were languishing at the bottom of the points table but RR put up an inspired performance to move to the sixth spot, while KKR were left with plenty to answer after yet another disappointing performance saw them drop to the bottom. Rajasthan bowlers took control of the game from the get go and didn’t allow KKR players to score freely. KKR could not only manage 133 for nine from their 20 overs and Rajasthan Royals, riding on skipper Sanju Samson’s unbeaten 42, got to the total in the penultimate over.
