Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) comfortably beat Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 71 runs on Monday in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Eden Gardens. Sunil Narine (3/18) and Kuldeep Yadav (3/32) ensured KKR kept their cool in the match and never gave the chance to the Delhi side get going. Glenn Maxwell (47) and Rishabh Pant (43) were the only batsmen who gave Delhi a chance. However, after their dismissals, Delhi lost the plot completely and succumbed to a good KKR bowling display. Barring Pant and Maxwell, no other Delhi batsmen could muster a double-digit run figure. Lack of partnerships coupled with poor shot selection by Delhi batsmen gave KKR a much-needed victory.
Nitish Rana (59) and Andre Russell (41) powered Kolkata to 200/6 in 20 overs against Delhi in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Eden Garden. After a slow start by KKR, Chris Lynn (31) began hitting the shots to keep the run rate going. Sunil Narine was dismissed for 1 run in the 3rd over. Robin Uthappa took the initiative to hit the big shots and score a quickfire 19-ball 35 runs. Rana played a superb inning and got his fifty. He was ably supported by Russell, who began hitting right from the outset. He hit six sixes in his 12-ball 41 runs. Delhi got back with some decent bowling display by Rahul Tewatia in the last over as they restricted KKR to 200. Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers for Delhi as he returned with bowling figures of 2/29 and even bowled a maiden over.
