Player Of The Match
Jofra Archer has won the game for the Royals with an unbelievable cover drive maximum, what a game! Rajastan looked down and out after the dismissals of Smith and Stokes but they have their two young guns to thank, Parag and Archer. Parag played a mature and controlled innings making a match winning 47 off 31 balls until hitting his own wicket in the 19th over. The last over was all about Archer who hit 10 runs in the first two deliveries to snatch the win for the Royals. Karthik will feel hard done by after his top class innings, but that is the 6th defeat in a row for KKR who are in a crisis.
