IPL Match Result: Rajasthan Royals beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs

rrAs widely expected, Rajasthan Royals beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs in the first match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in their newly adopted home at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad on Monday.

Rajasthan Royals scored 170 for six against Kolkata Knight Riders, who began chasing a target of 171, but they could manage only 160 for six in 20 overs.

KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir said: “It’s a hard pill to swallow, I have not seen this kind of cricket before. We will move on from this and will look to turn things around.
