- (Source: PTI)Their fate hanging by a thread, Rajasthan Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane believes his side still can qualify for the play-offs even after a bitter six-wicket defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.
- After a great start by Jos Buttler and Rahul Tripathi, Rajasthan were bundled out for 142, which was chased down by KKR in 18 overs last night.
- Rahane admitted that they have not batted well this season as they should have posted something around 175-180 yesterday, especially after the magnificent start provided by Buttler and Tripathi.
- Their task has become all the more difficult as their English duo of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler played their last match of the season last night.
- But Rahane said Rajasthan have good overseas players to replace the Englishmen.
