IPL 2018: Kolkata Knight Riders Beat Delhi Daredevils by 71 Runs

Disciplined bowling KKR

Young Shivam Mavi had a memorable evening as he scalped Gautam Gambhir's wicket.

Until Andre Russell walked out to bat, Delhi appeared to be in control of the proceedings and were hopeful of restricting Kolkata to a score of 170-175. Chasing under lights, Delhi Daredevils failed to get off to a good start and kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell then got together to put up a 62-run partnership for the fourth wicket to give some hope to the Delhi fans but once Pant was dismissed by Kuldeep for 43, Delhi fell like nine pins. In the end Delhi were bowled out for 129 runs in 14.2 overs to hand KKR a comfortable win. The Australian tries to hit third six on trott to Kuldeep Yadav, but this time he holds it straight to Uthappa.

But the biggest impact in the game was by Jamaican Andre Russell, who hit an impressive six sixes as he scored 41 runs in just 12 balls. With Maxwell at the crease, Delhi can still hope for a miracle.

Trent Boult, who bowled a first-over maiden to Lynn, returned and clean bowled Russell with a yorker. A great gloveworks from Karthik saw Jason Roy stumped off Piyush Chawla in the first over.

In his second over, Boult accounted for Narine's (1) wicket and ensured the all-rounder doesn't score quick runs for his side.

Lynn got into the groove, smashing Boult for back-to-back boundaries before Uthappa took Nadeem to the cleaners with two sixes and a four.

Nitish Rana was the other batting hero, essaying a crucial role of anchoring the innings. Mavi then compounded the misery on them by sending the ever reliable Gambhir packing in the third leaving the Knight Riders reeling at 24/3.

WICKET! Trent Boult with the breakthrough, Narine edges one back to wicketkeeper Pant to deflects it to Maxwell on the first slip.

This time around he will be wearing the blue and red jersey of Delhi and will face Dinesh Karthik and co, when these two teams collide in the much anticipated clash at Eden Gardens on Monday. If fans were confused whom to support after Gambhir moved from KKR to DD, they were left in no doubt by the end of the match, what with KKR bowling the entire DD team out in just 14.2 overs.

In the next over, Rana caught Iyer at first slip off Russell's bowling while the big wicket of Gambhir - who is KKR's most successful captain winning two IPLs with them - fell to U-19 World Cup victor Shivam Mavi (1/14).

He played a gem of an innings, selecting his shots with aplomb, as he hit five fours and four sixes to set up KKR's onslaught and allow Russell, who was dropped on 7 by Roy, to go for the big shots from the word go.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.
