That is it from this game! Rajasthan get the 2 points. We have a double-header on 25th April, 2021. First match is between Chennai and Bangalore. It will begin at 1530 local (1000 GMT). The second match is between Hyderabad and Delhi. Do join us for that at 1930 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and cheers!
Chris Morris is named the MAN OF THE MATCH. He says he bowled with a clear mind and that worked for him. Adds that it wasn't the easiest wicket to bat on. Tells that Stokes and Archer are massive losses but they have the right personnel and they had to lift themselves and keep smiling. Tells that they had a lot of fun while playing today. Adds that conditions always change and it is always difficult to bowl against Dre Russ but they try to analyze and keep working on it.
Sanju Samson, the Rajasthan skipper, says that the bowlers did well to restrict Kolkata to 133. Adds that it was a brilliant effort from their bowlers. Mentions that he was happy for Chris Morris as he was ready to perform against big players. Mentions that he plays according to the situation and he wanted to make his team win today. Further says that Chetan Sakariya is a very happy character and the team is happy having him. Samson also says that Sakariya will win games for them in the future.
Eoin Morgan, the Kolkata skipper, says the batsmen did not bat with intent in the whole innings. Adds that they did not have enough score on the board. Mentions that they were at least 40 runs short. Further says that they did not have partnerships in their innings. Morgan also says they lost wickets upfront and in the end, the batsmen had a lot to do. Mentions that they need to play smart cricket and it was not there today. Further says that they could not get the 2 points but they move to Ahmedabad from here and will look for a change in fortunes.
David Miller is down for a chat, says that it is really nice to finish the game and it was a good team effort in the end. Adds that him coming down the order was a tactical move and he is happy that it worked out. Says that they have a great setup and have a positive outlook. Tells that the pitch was nice but the cutters were tough to hit.
Kolkata bowled with all their heart but the target was too low for them to make a match out of it. Mavi and Chakravarthy bowled well. So did Narine and Krishna. But they couldn't pick up regular wickets to put the pressure on the Rajasthan lineup.
Clinical display by Rajasthan. They lost their openers early, but skipper Samson was joined by Dube in the middle. They both put on a solid partnership to ensure that they motor along well. Dube fell and Tewatia fell soon too. But Samson was solid as a rock and he was joined by Miller. These two saw Rajasthan over the line.
Rajasthan chase it down with ease. This was a great match for them and they would be very happy to pick up 2 points. Kolkata, on the other hand, are under more pressure now.

STRATEGIC TIME-OUT! Rajasthan are doing well here. They have Sanju Samson still there. He would want Miller to give him good support till the end. They lost Tewatia but Rajasthan would look to not lose any more wickets. On the other hand, Kolkata have done well to put pressure on Rajasthan. They have not given easy runs so far but they still need wickets to make a comeback into this match.
