0.1 over (1 Run)
Edgy start! Archer starts with a 142.0 kph full ball on middle and off. Gill looks to flick but gets a leading edge which fgoes through the vacant third man region to the man in the deep for one.

We are all set for the action to begin. The two umpires walk out to the middle. Rajasthan players are in a huddle with their skipper having a word with his troops before they take their respecive positions in the field. Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill stride out to the middle to open the innings for Kolkata. Rajasthan’s pace merchant, Jofra Archer to take the new ball first up.

KOLKATA PLAYING XI - Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Sunil Narine, Andre Russel(IN for Lockie Ferguson), Shivam Mavi (IN for Rinku Singh), Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Varun Chakravarthy.

RAJASTHAN PLAYING XI - Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson (WK), Steven Smith (C), Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Varun Aaron, Kartik Tyagi.

Kolkata skipper, Eoin Morgan admits he wanted to chase as well because of the dew. Morgan tells that it is not a night to hold back and they need to play well. Informs Andre Russell is back in the side and it is a big boost as he has been with the franchise for a long time. Informs there is one more change as Rinku Singh misses out and Shivam Mavi coms in.

Rajasthan skipper, Steven Smith says that the dew has come in the last few games and that is a major reason to chase. Tells they have chased down well in the past and hope to do it again. On Stokes, he says he has been fantastic and his performance is bleeding confidence in their side. Informs that they are unchanged from the last game.

TOSS – We are all in readiness for the spin of the coin. Kolkata skipper, Eoin Morgan and Rajasthan skipper, Steven Smith are out in the middle alongside the match referee who has the coin. Up goes the coin. Morgan calls Heads but it comes down as Tails. RAJASTHAN OPT TO BOWL!

Rajasthan, on the other hand, can still make the playoffs but they will need a big win and hope the other results go in their favour. First up they will need to do what is in their hand. They are on a two game winnig streak and will look to build on that and try and delay their flight back home. Can Smith get one over Morgan or will Kolkata end their season on a high?

Hello and welcome to the second of the final double-header Sunday as Kolkata take on Rajasthan. Both sides can reach 14 points but Kolkata’s heavy losses in the past means that the chances of them finishing in the top 4 is mathematically possible but practically extremely difficult.
