KKR v RR, IPL Match 44, Kolkata: Rajasthan Royals earn semi-final berth

Yusuf Pathan and Mohammed Kaif drummed up a crucial unfinished 81-run partnership as Rajasthan Royals confirmed their semi-final berth by cantering to a six-wicket victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders at Kolkata.
Pathan(48*) and Kaif (34*) took the game away from the Knight Riders during their rollicking 42-ball stand after the hosts posted a modest 147 for eight in the face of a disciplined bowling performance from the league leaders. The Royals, now on 18 points from 11 outings, registered their ninth win of the tourney, while the Knight Riders' hopes to make the last four dimmed further with the defeat as they remained on 10 points.
KKR v RR, IPL Match 44, Kolkata: Rajasthan Royals 150 for 4 in 16.3 ovs beat Kolkata Knight Riders 147 for 8 in 20.0 ovs by 6 wickets
