With an aim to make it to the playoffs based on Net Run Rate and other factors, the boys in Purple and Gold entered the ground determined to win the match by a good margin. 

Leading from the front in the crunch game, Morgan dismantled the bowling unit of the Royals with strokes all around the ground.

The southpaw was brutal against Ben Stokes as he smashed him for three sixes and a boundary in the penultimate over to power the Knight Riders to a massive 191 runs. His knock included five boundaries and six massive hits over the fence.

The pressure of the run chase proved difficult for the Royals as Pat Cummins bamboozled the opposition with four wickets upfront. A clinical bowling performance ensured the Knight Riders record an emphatic 60-run win and stay in the hunt to secure a place in the playoffs.
