Kolkata have tightened their grip on third place in the table with Rajasthan two points back in fourth - the Royals could make the play-offs with a win over RCB in their final group game but will be without Stokes and Buttler, who will return to England ahead of the first Test against Pakistan.

Kuldeep (4/20) flummoxed Rajasthan Royals batsmen with his wrist spin as the visitors were bowled out for 142 from 19 overs after being sent into bat. But after that Rajasthan could not pull so many runs in the entire innings in any over. Nitish Rana made another 21 runs before being trapped for LBW. Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa are well equipped with their own batting powers.

Kolkata knew all they needed to do was play out the overs as a required rate of seven an over was not beyond them. Lynn's luck ran out eventually and he was stranded on 45 runs.

Karthik and Andre Russell (11 n.o. off 5) batted aggressively to see off the chase with plenty to spare. Karthik finished it off with a six to remain undefeated on 41 off 31 balls in a knock that included five fours and one six.

Ben Stokes and Jaydev Unadkat, RR's costliest buys at this year's auction, have failed to win a single match for their team.

Even when Rahul Tripathi and Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals sent the ball smashing for fours and sixes off KKR bowlers in the second and third overs of the match, the crowd remained loyal to the Knights.

Capitals not ruling out Nicklas Backstrom for Game 3
It was the first home game for the Capitals in a conference final in 20 years, but it didn't go well for Washington. Louis to become Tampa Bay's all-time leading playoff power-play scorer, at 25 points, per Bryan Burns .

The India batsman struck Narine for back-to-back sixes in the first over and motored on after Russell struck twice in as many balls to remove Chris Gayle (21) and Mayank Agarwal.

Tripathi was dropped off the first ball of the match by Rana at wide slip-off Mavi, who leaked only two runs in the opening over. Kuldeep started off by cleaning up RR skipper Ajinkya Rahane who continued his woeful form to get out for 11 and in the next over he denied Buttler a record sixth straight fifty.

Buttler, however, ended up top scoring for his side with 39 to his name in 22 deliveries.

With Sunil Narine trapping Sanju Samson in front of the wicket, the hopes of Royals to post a competitive total vanished. Ben Stokes picked three wickets. His Smart Runs Index (SRI), which compares the smart runs scored by the batsman in an innings with the average smart runs scored historically by other batsmen at the same point of entry, was -3.59, which means he was performing below par in the historical context. Prasidh, who had been expensive earlier on, helped clean up the tail, finishing with 2 for 35.

"He's (Kuldeep Yadav) an worldwide quality player. sometimes he slacks off, bowls a bad ball, trying too much so I'm just trying to make him do as well as he can and stay consistent".
