Rajasthan Royals have won a close contest after being at the receiving end in most cases. On the other side, Kolkata received their own treatment of a close chase, as Rajasthan took the game away from them at the end.

FD Players Performance


Players who performed well


Riyan Parag

The 17-year-old carried Royals batting on his shoulders, as he played a vital knock to help the team chase under pressure. He was very composed with his stroke-making through the chase as he never showed any signs of vulnerability. In the end, his hit was the difference in the result for Rajasthan. He made 34 points in this IPL match. Our IPL prediction system did not include him in our best Dream11 fantasy cricket team suggestion, this could be a result of him having played fewer IPL matches than the rest.


Dinesh Karthik

He had come up with a substantial contribution for the first time in this IPL season. He held on to the crease when wickets fell at the other end and made sure he played through the innings. If not for his characteristic knock, Kolkata would have the lost the match in the first innings itself. He made 67 points. We are glad to have had him in our Dream11 fantasy cricket team.


Varun Aaron

He is playing only his second IPL match of the season, and Varun has come up with a match-defining spell. He was the main man behind Kolkata’s early collapse in the match. He also proved to be economical as he finished with figures of 2/20 in his 4 over spell. He made 35 points.


Piyush Chawla

His performance may not have changed the result for Kolkata but he was the pick of the bowlers for them. His impressive spell was the reason for Rajasthan’s mini-collapse which indeed took the game deep. He made 33 points in this IPL match.


Players who didn’t Perform


Chris Lynn

Even though our IPL prediction system suggested him, this Kolkata’s opener failed to give his team a good start. His early dismissal allowed Rajasthan to get things going for them as they contuied the momentum with picking wickets in quick time. He couldn’t contribute any points. We hope he bounces back and proves his worth in the Dream11 fantasy cricket team.


Steven Smith

He failed to replicate his good form against Kolkata, as he departed early in the chase after scoring only 2 runs. His dismissal, which was soon after the departure of openers made things tricky for Rajasthan. He made only 3 points in this IPL match.


FD Grand League Team Prediction

Our IPL predictions for the match was not accurate, as we perceived the top order batsmen to score more runs. We missed on a few middle order batsmen in our grand teams which was unexpected.
