RR win despite Karthik show

Skipper Dinesh Karthik’s unbeaten 97 off 50 balls went in vain as Kolkata Knight Riders suffered a three-wicket defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals -- courtesy of a late cameo from Jofra Archer -- in Kolkata yesterday.

After being asked to bat first, Kolkata rode on Karthik’s valiant effort to post a challenging 175 for six.
