That's all from us tonight. Hope you enjoyed our coverage of this high-scoring affair at the Eden Gardens. The action now shifts to Chennai for a blockbuster. CSK take on MI tomorrow, in what promises to be a crackerjack of a contest. Do join us for live action. Until then, it's goodbye.
Rajasthan, on the other hand, have managed to pull off a last over victory to stay alive in the competition. While it was Varun Aaron who was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors, Ajinkya Rahane, Riyan Parag and Jofra Archer played crucial knocks to help them chase down the target.
The men in purple just don't seem to find a way to gain some winning momentum. After Dinesh Karthik's lone battle with the bat in the first innings, Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine delivered the goods with the ball in hand. However, it was a poor display from the pace pack that proved detrimental for the Knights. The likes of Prasidh Krishna and Prithvi Raj were belted for plenty as DK was found wanting for options once the spinners finished their spells. KKR sink further in troubled waters and they will have to find inspiration from somewhere to get their campaign back on track.
The script continues to go worse for KKR as they register their sixth defeat on the bounce.
And Archer seals the deal for the Rajasthan Royals. Prasidh Krishna bowls another length delivery and the Englishman smacks it away for a match-winning six.
19.2 SIX! Prasidh Krishna to Jofra Archer. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed over deep extra cover for 6 runs.
Krishna has clearly not learned from his previous over. The pacer bowls a length delivery once again and gives away for four runs.
19.1 FOUR! Prasidh Krishna to Jofra Archer. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs.
Can Prasidh Krishna hold his nerve for KKR or will Archer script glory for the Royals?
Right then. RR need 9 runs of the final six balls.

18.6 Andre Russell to Jaydev Unadkat. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to mid on for no runs, fielded by Gill.
What a sad way to end a terrific knock. Russell goes short and Parag loses his balance to knock the stumps off with his bat. KKR manage to get a sniff in.
18.5 OUT! Hit Wicket. Andre Russell to Riyan Parag. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge to fine leg.
Riyan Parag you beauty! The youngster is not holding back whatsoever! Tonks this over the long-on fielder for a magnificent six.
18.4 SIX! Andre Russell to Riyan Parag. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed over long on for 6 runs.
18.3 Andre Russell to Jofra Archer. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, in the air under control to long off for 1 run, fielded by Gill.

18.1 Andre Russell to Jofra Archer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Singh.
The KKR supporters have gone into absolute silence.
The pacers have clearly not helped KKR's cause tonight.
Wow! A brilliant strike from the young man. Hoicks the KKR pacer far into the stands for a might six. That could well be the decisive blow.
