KKR just swaps the Royals at Kolkata by 8 wickets

After the last at april 12 and a defeat on that day from Kinght riders,Rajasthan Royals got a back to back defeat from this team at last day means 18th april and the 17th match of this IPL 2011.

After a shaky start, Ashok Menaria showed some promise with a quick-fire 21 from 17 balls but there was no end to Rajasthan's misery as they lost their last five wickets for just three runs within a space of 13 balls.
Put into bat, Rajasthan made their intentions clear promoting in-form Shane Watson (11 off 13) up the order to open the batting with Amit Paunikar, who scored a run-a-ball 15. But Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir justified his decision to bowl first as Balaji and Abdulla made early in-roads, dismissing both the openers within five overs.
Just when Watson and Paunikar were beginning to look dangerous with some clean strikes off Shakib, Gambhir's move of bringing in Balaji and Abdulla paid rich dividends.
Balaji castled through Watson's defence with a gem of an outswinger and in the next over, left arm spinner Abdulla disturbed Paunikar's timber to reduce Royals to 28/2.

Knight Riders' fielding was equally sharp today as they managed two quick run-outs -- Faiz Fazal (3) and Abhishek Raut (11) -- in a space of six balls to see Rajasthan totter at 43/4 after eight overs.
In Knight Riders' second home match even though it was not a packed Eden, yet a turnout of about 50,000 ensured a vibrant atmosphere with principal owner and Bollywood heartthrob Shah Rukh Khan cheering from the corporate box.
There was a brief comeback of sorts for Rajasthan with Menaria taking charge of the Knight Riders attack.
Just when a partnership between Menaria and Ross Taylor was developing, the latter was scalped by Yusuf Pathan to bring an end to their recovery process that yielded 24 runs.
Balaji returned to haunt in the 14th over as the seamer claimed two wickets, including that of Menaria (21 off 17 balls) in the same over to reduce Rajasthan to 79/7.
Balaji castled Ajinkya Rahane (6) in the first ball of 14th over and then Maneria became his third victim in the last delivery of the same over when the southpaw was trying to lift the pacer over the third man.

Then Shakib claimed two wickets in consecutive deliveries, while Lee gave the icing on the cake claiming the last wicket in the 16th over to wrap up the Rajasthan innings inside the 100-run mark.
From 78/6 in 13.1 overs, Rajasthan were eventually skittled out for 81 in 15.2 overs. 

When it comes to chase the target of 82 runs,After two early blows, Gambhir and Tiwary added unbeaten 54-run match winning partnership as Knight Riders chased down the target with 6.1 overs to spare.
Tiwary was the aggressor as he hit a six and four boundaries in his 26-ball innings whereas his skipper played run-a-ball knock with three fours.
Chasing a modest 82-run target, Knight Riders lost Manvinder Bisla (9) and Jacques Kallis (0) early against Rajasthan Royals.
