Royal Challengers Bengaluru star batter Virat Kohli continues to top the list when it comes to the Orange Cap followed by Rajasthan Royals’ Riyan Parag. KKR all-rounder Sunil Narine grabbed the third spot thanks to his ton while Sanju Samson and Rajasthan Royals are 4th and 5th respectively.

Coming to the Purple Cap, Yuzvendra Chahal is in the lead followed by Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Pat Cummins and Punjab Kings pacer Kagiso Rabada.

Rajasthan Royals pulled off the Indian Premier League’s biggest run chase to beat Kolkata Knight Riders by two wickets.

Asked to bat first, KKR rode on Sunil Narine’s 56-ball 109 to post 223/6 in the allotted 20 overs.

In reply, RR were in all sorts of trouble at one stage but Jos Buttler blasted his way to an unbeaten 60-ball 107, as the visitors completed the chase in the last ball of the match.

After his team was asked to bat first on a fresh pitch, Narine blazed away to a 49-ball 100 to lead KKR’s charge in this top-of-the-table clash at Eden Gardens.

It was a one-man show from KKR as Narine (109 off 56) batted till the 18th over, first stitching 85 runs with Angkrish Raghuvanshi (30) and then adding 51 runs with Andre Russell (13).

However, Buttler had other ideas as he did the job for RR from an extremely difficult position.
