Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders faced off at Abu Dhabi in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game. In this game, Shane Watson won the toss and chose to bat first. It is a well known fact by now in the IPL that chasing at Abu Dhabi is no easy task. There were quite a few changes that were made to both the line-ups. Rajasthan brought back James Faulkner into the side. Even Iqbal Abdulla came into the team. Plus, Kolkata got back R Vinay Kumar, Shakib Al Hasan, Manvinder Bisla in place of Piyush Chawla, Chris Lynn and Yusuf Pathan. Ajinkya Rahane‘s innings of 72 helped Rajasthan Royals record a competitive 152 for five.

With 16 required off two overs and six wickets in hand, Kolkata were certain to win as Shakib Al Hasan and Suryakumar Yadav were well-set. But James Faulkner bowled a brilliant penultimate over taking three wickets and conceding only four runs.And then in a dramatic finish, Shakib managed to tie the game with three runs needed off the last ball. Rajasthan had scored 152 and Kolkata scored 152 for eight.

With the game moving into the Super Over, Kolkata lost Yadav off the first ball as he was run-out. But then Manish Pendey smashed a six to take Kolkata to 11. Sunil Narine then came on to bowl the Super Over and conceded only four off the first three balls. Watson then smashed a four over mid-wicket. Then, three were required off the last ball, when Steven Smith blocked one and ran two, which was enough to seal victory.
