IPL 2018, KKR vs DD: Hits and Misses

Knight Riders join Sunrisers at IPL summit

Shubman Gill (6), Tom Curran (2), Piyush Chawla (0), Shivam Mavi (0) helped KKR end the innings at 200/9 in 20 overs, with Rahul Tewatia dismissing all of them in the last over. Gambhir's stay was short lived as he was bowled by Shivam Mavi leaving Delhi's run chase in trouble.

West Indies all-rounder Russell bludgeoned an unbeaten 88 from 36 balls in a defeat to Chennai Super Kings last week and cut loose again in Kolkata.

Delhi Daredevils: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Chris Morris, Glenn Maxwell, Amit Mishra, Shahbaz Nadeem, Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, Mohammad Shami, Trent Boult, Colin Munro, Daniel Christian, Jason Roy, Naman Ojha, Prithvi Shaw, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Avesh Khan, Abhishek Sharma, Jayant Yadav, Harshal Patel, Manjot Kalra, Sandeep Lamichhane, Sayan Ghosh.

But Kolkata came back hard and Delhi lost its last seven wickets for 43 runs in 5.5 overs.

As Karthik rightly pointed out at the post-match press conference on Saturday, KKR's strength lies in their three-pronged spin attack led by mystery spinner Sunil Narine and also has celebrated chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and veteran leggie Piyush Chawla. As it happened Knight Riders bowled out Daredevils for 129 in 14.2 overs to register their second win of the season.

Although Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell tried to restart the run chase, it was becoming too late for the visitors. Chawla bowled the first over, took the wicket of Roy (1), beautifully stumped by Karthik. In his innings he hit three sixes and two fours. "Today I had made a decision to play till the end and waited for the spinners to come into action as spin bowling is an easy option for me to play" Rana said at the post-match press conference. A listless batting display by Gautam Gambhir and Co means that they have lost third match of the IPL 2018.


But they still managed to score 50 runs in the powerplay, thanks to some clean hitting by Lynn (31) and Uthappa, who scored a brisk 35 from 19 balls.

WICKET! Trent Boult with the breakthrough, Narine edges one back to wicketkeeper Pant to deflects it to Maxwell on the first slip. They jumped to second in the points table with four points from four matches, just behind Sunrisers Hyderabad who have six points from three games.

The visitors won the toss at Eden Gardens and put Kolkata Knight Riders to bat. Hence the chance of DD Winning this match is rare.

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). Here's who won today's IPL match.

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.
