Right then, the last of double header action this league season ends. Earlier, Chennai beat Punjab and both teams are now flying back to India. While in game 54, Kolkata reduced Rajasthan to pulp. The latter is also out of contention for the playoffs spot now. Kolkata is still alive, courtesy the 60-run win but they must wait, need to reiterate, THEY MUST WAIT! We will only get to know later on, if they can qualify. Meanwhile, the action continues on Monday, 2nd November 2020, with Delhi taking on Bangalore. The winner of that clash secures the other berth in the top 2, alongside Mumbai. The action for Match 55 begins at 1800 Local (1400 GMT) but our build-up begins well in advance. Tune in for that and till then, take care and goodnight!
No prizes for guessing who is the Man of the Match. It is Pat Cummins. Admits that it was not a very great start for him. He did not look too forward when bowling. On his favourite ball, Cummins says it is top of the stumps, around off. Says that he likes to put most of his balls in that area. In T20 cricket, Pat says that some days one bowls well and some days they don't. Is happy that a couple of wickets have come. The longer the tournament has progressed, the better he has bowled, Cummins says.
Eoin Morgan, THE WINNING CAPTAIN, says that the score they got was around a par score. Adds that all his batsmen felt that it was a really good score. Feels that to post that big of a score even with wickets falling, Morgan says he is amazed. States that Kolkata knew that dew would come in later on, in the evening. Having spent time out in the middle, he says that the hard and good length balls work well. States that Cummins set the tone. Says that winning the game was about taking the wickets. Adds that Rajasthan have many world-class players on their side and it was important to take them out. Says that Rajasthan are a fantastic side as are the majority of the teams today. Adds that Kolkata cannot do anything beyond what they did today. He says that beyond this everything is left to god.
Stay tuned for the presentation.
Andre Russell is up for a chat. Says that it is good to be back and be amongst the runs as well. Says that he had a tough rehab. Is priviliged to be back and running around. He says that he would have been out for a long time but for Kolkata's doctors and the management, he is up and running and was able to feature in this game. Says that he does not want to disturb the healing process and force himself to bowl. On his wicket, him getting caught, Russell admits that he knew he stroked it straight to the fielder. Is happy that the team got these 2 crucial points. Says that he loves following cricket and watches every game. States that the middle overs is normally where he bats so he watches and sees what everyone does there.
Steven Smith, Rajasthan's captain, says that the wicket was probably around 180. Losing 4 wickets in the Powerplay, it was always going to be tough from there. Says that Pat Cummins bowled nice lengths. Adds that the first over, Rajasthan got off to a flier but then kept losing wickets later on. Says that some batters did not take responsibility throughout the tournament. Says though that there are a couple of positives that Rajasthan have unearthed - Jofra Archer and Rahul Tewatia. Smith says that the latter bowled really well throughout the tournament. Smith agrees that every side in this tournament is tough. Says that it is a disappointing day for Rajasthan to bow out. Adds that it has been great. Congratulates the organizers for putting up a wonderful show in Dubai. States that many in India are going through tough times and hopes that the players could do their bit to entertain them. States that the BCCI have done really well to put up this show.
Earlier in the evening, Kolkata managed to reach 191, thanks to their captain, Morgan! His superb 68 off 35 did not just steady the sinking ship but also took them to a winning total. Tewatia was the star with the ball for the side from the 'Pink City' as he finished with a 3-fer. That though was not enough to keep Kolkata to a chaseable total.
Excellent bowling performance from Kolkata. Cometh the hour, cometh the man! That is what their most expensive buy did. He delivered at the most crucial stage for his side. His 4-fer set his side up for the win. Mavi and the impressive Chakravarthy built on it with 2 wickets each. Nagarkoti got one as well. This ensured Rajasthan never recovered.
Chasing 192, Rajasthan looked like they would be able to chase it for just 13 balls. They lost Uthappa in the first over, Stokes followed soon. That set the precedent for the evening. Wickets fell in clusters and when you lose 4 inside the Powerplay, it is difficult to comeback, especially chasing 192! Buttler and Tewatia scored 35 and 31 but that was the only saving grace in an abject batting performance. That sees them finish bottom of the league.
Comprehensive win for Kolkata and they have knocked out Rajasthan. Kolkata have finished the league with 14 points but will it be enough to see them qualify for the playoffs? Only time will tell. Bet all the Kolkata fans and players will be glued to their Television for the next two days, keeping a close eye on the remaining 2 games.

OUT! TAKEN! Trust Mavi to take it one-handed and he does. The 9th wicket goes down for Rajasthan. Full and on middle and leg, Tyagi looks to flick it on the leg side but ends up getting a leading edge back to the bowler. Shivam Mavi was a touch surprised that it came back to him. He manages to react quickly, get a hand to it but fumbles a touch, a couple of times, before he finally holds onto it.

Sunil Narine To Jofra Archer
NOT OUT! Don't know why there was a call for the stumping there. Archer was very safe, even to the looks of the naked eye. Tossed up on off and middle, Archer gives room on the off side and swings for the heavens but misses. It goes on top of the stumps and Karthik does not collect it properly. It rolls off his body and hits the stumps, whipping the bails off. There is an appeal for the stumping. The on-field umpires take it upstairs to have a look. The replay is in and Archer's foot is well inside as the bails come off.

DRINKS! Rajasthan's miracle and magician man of the season, Rahul Tewatia has also departed and so as their hopes. They need another 87 runs in 32 balls. Kolkata will now look to bowl them out under 112 to get their run rate better. Can they take the next 3 wickets for 7 or less runs?  Archer joins Gopal out in the middle.

The umpires take it upstairs. Replays are in and Gopal's bat is well grounded.

DRINKS! What an amazing bowling display this has been from Kolkata so far! They have sent half the Rajasthan side back in the pavilion. The most expensive buy of the season, Pat Cummins, was brilliant with the new ball and instrumental as 4 out of 5 have been his victims. Rajasthan need 126 off 66 balls and though they have lost half their side, they have Buttler and miracle man, Tewatia out in the middle. Can Buttler and Tewatia turn this around or will Kolkata dominate the remaining of the innings as well?

Pat Cummins To Riyan Parag OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! More wickets coming for Kolkata. Another great jump from DK. A well-directed short ball on the body from Cummins, Parag half-swivels and pulls at it. However there is no timing at all as the ball rushed onto him. He only manages to get it to the left of the keeper. Dinesh Karthik, jumps and takes a good catch, yet again. Rajasthan need 155 runs in 90 balls still, with only 5 wickets in hand.

Shivam Mavi To Sanju Samson OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Kolkata are all over Rajasthan here. Samson can be dangerous but this time he goes only for 1. Full ball, it lands around off and jags away a little. Sanju looks to drive on the up but gets a good outside edge. This time though it goes straight to Karthik and it is an easy take for him.

Pat Cummins To Steven Smith
Full on middle and leg, Smith looks to clip it on the leg side but gets an inside edge onto his pads. It goes further to the leg side for nothing. The slips cordon appeals for a lbw, oblivious of the inside edge.

Pat Cummins To Ben Stokes OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! What a brilliant catch from DK. Reminded us of a stunner that he took in the 2007 T20 World Cup in the slips cordon. Full and outside off, Stokes swings hard across the line. But he ends up getting an outside edge. It goes to the left of Dinesh Karthik, the keeper. It was travelling quickly and was well wide of him. But Dinesh made a 'leap of the year' to pluck it.

A couple... geeh, Stokes is really quick. Full on the pads, Stokes flicks it to square leg. They take the single and Stokes wants a second. He runs to the striker's end. The throw comes there, Mavi reaches there but fails to collect it. Stokes meanwhile dives to get in. He is a superhuman.

OUT! CAUGHT! 19 and a wicket off the first over. Robin Uthappa is the man who is gone. Full on middle and leg, Robbie looks to flick. He gets it uppishly to the left of the fielder at deep backward square leg. Kamalesh Nagarkoti though had enough time to run in that direction and take it easily, which he goes.

WIDE! Down the leg side, Uthappa looks to send it to the fine leg fence again but misses. Karthik the keeper dives to his right and stops that from going to the boundary. The batters manage to take a run.
We are all set for the chase to begin then! 192 is the target for Rajasthan. The Kolkata players are in a huddle near the ropes. Morgan is all smiles. Possibly because he believes his side has a huge total on board. Rajasthan's openers, Robin Uthappa and Ben Stokes, make their way out to the middle. Pat Cummins to begin with the ball for Shah Rukh Khan's team. And we are off then...
