IPL 2018: Kuldeep Yadav reveals plan behind getting Jos Buttler's wicket

Ben Stokes will play his last game for Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday against KKR and will return to England to join the Test squad Ben Stokes will play his last game for Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday against KKR and will return to England to join the Test squad

Both Kolkata and Rajasthan are on 12 points from the same number of outings and have two more matches to play before the knockouts stages commence.

Kolkata Knight Riders are now just one win away from qualifying for Indian Premier League's playoffs after they defeated Rajasthan Royals by six wickets, at Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday. As a result, the Royals could only manage 142 runs as they were bundled in the penultimate over.

I n all likeliness, Sunil Narine will be opening the batting along with Chris Lynn.

Currently, on 12 points, victory in last two games will assure them play-off spot with 16 points. With Rahul and Gayle they wanted to make a destroying start.

RR have made a strong comeback in VIVO IPL 2018 by registering three back-to-back wins after a long losing streak all thanks to their English import Jos Buttler. There, RR will try to take the revenge no doubt.

Then came the Archer show. Owing to a few wrong decisions by their batsmen, their ship came tumbling down.

Bills to retire Thurman Thomas' number
Thomas played a major role on a Bills team that appeared in the Super Bowl on four consecutive occasions in the early 1990s. The team announced Wednesday that it was retiring the jersey No. 34 worn by Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas.

Kuldeep Yadav bowled a magnificent spell of 4-0-20-4 for which he later won the "Man of the Match". The game had a thrilling start with Rajasthan openers dominating over the KKR bowlers, nearly silencing the crowd. In the match against MI, he was hit for 43. From 63/0 around the fifth over mark, the Royals spectacularly lost their way and got bowled out for 142.

Rahane missed the line and got castled and Buttler top-edged Kuldeep to Scanterbury-Searles on the edge of the circle. His first dismissal was that of Ajinkya Rahane, who displayed a poor shot selection and was castled playing a reverse sweep.

From 76/1, RR went to 103/6 when K Gowtham couldn't deal with one from Shivam Mavi that got big. They have been expensive this season, but at home, RR must be wary of them. Karthik continued to lead from the front with a belligerent 23-ball 50 while Sunil Narine smashed a 36-ball 75. Wickets collapsed in quick succession to mean that the visitors didn't even play out their full quota of overs. 96/4. The slowness of the pitch helped the spinners to enjoy turn.

If Binny failed to read that particular googly, Stokes was not reading anything.

Is Dinesh Karthik among IPL 2018's best finishers? In the 14th over, however, when an under-performing Ben Stokes departed, Royals were reduced to 107/7. Kuldeep kept reducing his speed, pitched it up and waited for Stokes to err. Stokes is worth picking for his bowling alone, while Rahane is the next best choice.

Having started so well, RR suffered a slide and fell like a bunch of cards.
