It was a second emphatic performance in a row for KKR, who now have three wins from five games.

Narine, who hit a six of pacer Ben Laughlin off the last ball of the sixth over to bring up the 50-run partnership with Uthappa, was on 28 off 18 balls.

The duo added 70 for the second wicket before Narine was run out on an individual score of 35.

Uthappa then carried on before a good catch by Ben Stokes at the ropes saw the veteran miss out on a half-century by two runs.

Rana and Karthik then made sure that there were no more hiccups as they took KKR home with seven balls to spare. However, KKR came back well and restricted the hosts to 160.

Earlier, the trio of Piyush Chawla (1/18), Kuldeep Yadav (1/23) and part-timer Nitish Rana (2/11) conceded 52 runs in 10 overs, sharing four wickets between them as Rajasthan failed to get going.

Panarin's OT goal powers Columbus move past Capitals
We're just doing it too often. "I thought there were clearly numbers (visible) there, so I'll just put it in the league's hand. Panarin had three points in one game after recording just one in the Blackhawks' first-round loss via sweep last season.


In the batting department, KKR have some big hitters like Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and Andre Russell and the bowling department also seemed sorted.

Opening the bowling for the third consecutive time in this season, Gowtham gave RR the flawless start.

His innings ended when KKR skipper and wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik effected a brilliant run-out after collecting the ball from in front of the stumps. The Australian, used to playing on bouncy pitches back home, later said he is still getting used to the low bounce in his maiden IPL stint. Openers Ajinkya Rahane and D'Arcy Short started the innings well but lost two quick wickets including the in-form Sanju Samson.

After the first three overs, Kolkata were 15 for one but in the next three they raked up 38 runs. Sunil Narine, however, proved to be expensive, with Rajasthan skipper Ajinkya Rahane smashing four 4's in an over by him.

An 18-ball 24 from Jos Buttler in the death overs helped Royals get past the 150-run mark.
