It takes one performance to grab the eyeballs, and Riyan Parag has taken his opportunity. What the IPL also does is that it puts the shackles of defeat so strong, that it's sometimes a struggle to break free, as KKR are finding out with their sixth straight defeat. Their playoff hopes are no longer in their hands as the race for qualification intensifies. Interesting times ahead. That's all from us tonight. Until next time, it's goodbye! Varun Aaron, MoM: Everything is fine. It was just cramps which got resolved in half an hour. I always believe in myself. I felt that the one over which I bowled in the previous game, didn't do much wrong in that. Feeling great, as good as ever. Want to play for my country and win matches. Smith | RR captain: We made it difficult for ourselves. We lost too many wickets in the middle section after a good start. Riyan Parag .. isn't he an impressive young man? He played very composed like a seasoned campaigner. Great contribution from Gopal and Archer too. I thought they bowled really well with the new ball, first 7-8 overs. Oshane did well in his first game. Varun Aaron was exceptional with the new ball. The boys did a great job. There was some really good shots from DK, who played a terrific innings. Happy to get over the line. The first 5-6 games, we weren't able to creep over the line. It's good to creep over the line tonight. We lose a few players now. Jofra and Stokesy are off tonight, they go back to England now - two big holes to fill. I am here for 13 games. After the Bangalore one, I'll be heading back. Hopefully, I can contribute and see if we can get few more wins. Jofra Archer: I just wanted to get bat on ball in the last over. I am really gutted that I have to leave the boys. Moments like these make me cherish playing for RR. I hope that we qualify for playoffs. We have a great bunch of guys here, anyone who will replace me will do a great job. I am grateful for Rajasthan for taking the chance on me as I have not played any international cricket. They took a very big risk for having me. Dinesh Karthik | KKR captain: Little disappointed. Thought we were in it to win, but it wasn't our day. I have kept saying that winning always feels good, but when you lose close games like this you feel 'wow, when are we gonna get there'. (The plan in the final over) We were looking to go full and on the stumps, obviously the first edge didn't help and then the equation got easier. Second shot was a good shot. You can't put too much pressure on the bowler. Wet ball; dew on outfield, it didn't help us. Happy with the way boys fought, not happy with the result. A lot of it will boil down to how much they trust me as a leader. It's important to keep the mood of the dressing room good. The fact that we are not able to cross the winning line is not a good feeling. 23:52 Local Time, 18:22 GMT, 23:52 IST: That was a sensational turnaround from the Rajasthan Royals. And it was led by 17-year-old Riyan Parag, who showed terrific composure for his age, firstly to have the belief of winning from a position of 98/5 with most of the batting back in the pavilion, and then to back himself in the death overs. The rate was never out of control, but the lack of batting depth left the Royals vulnerable after their implosion against spin. That's when Parag, playing just his fourth IPL game, batted with such maturity and then, towards the end, showed that he had the game to find the boundaries too. Of course, he also had help. Parag might be a star in the making, but Archer showed he's already a star. No wickets for him today, but he came out and whacked 27 off 12 balls to provide the finishing touches. Quite a few international teams around the world would be happy if he doesn't make England's eventual World Cup squad. 19.2 Prasidh to Jofra Archer, SIX , it takes two balls for Archer to wrap it up! This one's right in the slot from Prasidh to which Archer clears the front leg and wallops it over long-off. Sensational win for the Rajasthan Royals 19.1 Prasidh to Jofra Archer, FOUR , flies off the outside edge over short third man! Full ball outside off, Archer swings for the rafters, only just reaching it with the toe-end and slicing it into the boundary Nine needed off the final over 18.6 A Russell to Unadkat, no run, length ball at the stumps, Unadkat swings hard but mistimes it past Russell. They don't run Jaydev Unadkat, right handed bat, comes to the crease 18.5 A Russell to Riyan Parag, out Hit Wkt!! Oh dear, Parag's bat has clattered into the stumps. He was rushed for pace on this short ball, just managed some glove on the attempted pull but proceeded to disturb the stumps on the followthrough. That's a bit unlucky, if you can call it that. What a knock he's played though to put his team in pole position. Riyan Parag hit wkt b A Russell 47(31) [4s-5 6s-2] A Russell to Riyan Parag, THAT'S OUT!! Hit Wkt!! 18.4 A Russell to Riyan Parag, SIX , just clears Carlos Brathwaite at long-on! Slower short ball outside off, seemed like a mishit initially as Parag swung the forehand into the sky, but it kept going and going 18.3 A Russell to Jofra Archer, 1 run, short of length outside off, Archer biffs it flat-batted to long-off 18.2 A Russell to Riyan Parag, 1 run, right in the blockhole outside off, sliced to deep point 18.1 A Russell to Jofra Archer, 1 run, back of a length outside off, mowed to deep midwicket Andre Russell [2.0-0-23-0] is back into the attack 17.6 Prasidh to Riyan Parag, SIX , dug in short at pace, good height too, but it's flown into the crowd. Parag has swivelled across quickly and helped the pull over backward square. This is sensational batting 17.5 Prasidh to Riyan Parag, no run, superb yorker outside off. Parag stretched out to reach it but couldn't lay a bat Next
