Dinesh Karthik finally returned to some run-scoring form with his highest IPL score when he smashed 97 of just 50 deliveries against the Rajasthan Royals yesterday. He looked in sublime touch and took the onus on himself to get KKR to a competitive total. Despite the rare failure for Andre Russell, Karthik displayed a wide array of shots during his brilliant knock. His knock of 97 was studded with 7 fours and 9 sixes.

Later in the day, it was a match-winning innings from 17-year-old Riyan Parag who got the visitors over the line. Parag scored a quickfire 47 of 31 deliveries from a situation when KKR looked in a strong position to win the match.

After a great opening stand of 53 runs by Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson, RR lost the plot in the middle overs courtesy some good bowling by Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine. However, it was Riyan Parag and Jofra Archer who ensured that RR reached the target in the final over of the match.
