KKR vs DD, Match 13, IPL 2018


IPL 2018 Live Match 10 Kolkata Knight Riders VS Delhi Daredevils Match Will be Played at Eden Garden Stadium, Kolkata.

Till Glenn Maxwell (47) and Rishabh Pant (43) were at the crease, Delhi had some hopes but it evaporated with their dismissals 27 runs apart. After a dominant performance with the bat, which took them to an imposing score of 200 from their 20 overs, KKR made short work of their opposition.

Rana and Russell stitched together a 61-run partnership in just 22 balls for the fifth wicket.

However, a dominant win over Delhi Daredevils on Monday has put their campaign back on track and new skipper Dinesh Karthik will look to impress with his captaincy skills.

Other KKR batsmen have also chipped in when needed with the likes of Chris Lynn and Nitish Rana coming good in crunch situations. The clash between the two sides will see Gautam Gambhir return to his former side on Monday. Or Nitish Rana, the classy left-hand batsman once again stamping his authority?

Asked about his innings the 24-year-old played down his role and said it was a team effort as everyone fulfilled their responsibilities.

The left Hander hit sixes and fours in his explosive innings. "I always knew if the spinners come in, it's very easy for my game".

Once both of them departed within a matter of two overs, Delhi lost their last 7 wickets for 43 runs in 35 balls to lose the match by 71 runs.

Andre Russell has become the player who hit most sixes but he doesn't feel that he is a sixer king.

Sriram rued the drop catch of Russell, off the bowling of Mohammed Shami when he was on seven. He is also the first foreign bowler to achieve that milestone. The pair combined for 5 wickets with Tewatia picking up 3 and conceding only 18 runs in his 3 overs. Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors as he picked up 2/29 off his four overs.

The Aussie pack: Chris Lynn showed what he is capable of at the top of the order, blasting 31 runs from 29 balls, a knock that included four boundaries and a six.

Jason Roy, who was brought into the match against Mumbai in place of Colin Munro, will be looking to carry on the form after playing match winning knock in the last game.
