Share

As the required run rate skyrocketed and wickets fell around him, Maxwell kept a cool head and deposited Kuldeep Yadav (3-32) over the rope twice in as many balls, caught on the boundary going for a third to end his 22-ball stay.

Spearheaded by Russell in the company of Nitish Rana (59 off 35 balls), KKR put up a total on board that Delhi did not have any chance to score, suffering their third defeat from four matches.

Kolkata Knight Riders have bated well and set the target as 200 runs from 20 Overs for Delhi Daredevils.

Delhi lost wickets in clusters and were bowled out for 129 in 14.2 overs. "Rana wasn't going to be that risky compared to what Russell did", he added.

In IPL Cricket, Kolkata Knight Riders will clash with Delhi Daredevils at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata this evening.

Even the players like Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine would've felt the same as their skipper was donning the different jersey and was leading the other team this time around.

Gautam Gambhir won the toss and made a decision to field first in line with the latest trend.

Delhi were reduced to 24/3 inside the first three overs with opener Jason Roy (1), Shreyas Iyer (4) and skipper Gambhir (8) back in the hut.

Nitish Rana was adjudged Man of the Match. Gambhir's stay was short lived as he was bowled by Shivam Mavi leaving Delhi's run chase in trouble. He smashed six sixes off two overs from Mohammad Shami that cost the seamer 42 runs, and Rana completed his half-century off 30 balls. "I always knew if the spinners come in, it's very easy for my game".

Kolkata eventually hammered Delhi by 71 runs and Narine bowled a brilliant spell, returning with figures of 3/18 off three overs. He is also the first foreign bowler to achieve that milestone. Rahul Tewatia of DD took 3 wickets and Trent Boult and Chris Morris took 2 wickets each.

The last few games left some netizens wondering if IPL matches are scripted. Although, it is nearly child's play to label Russell's flier the high-point in KKR's win, in reality, it was Rana's role that stood out to be the difference between the two teams. Had Russell got out earlier, we would have still got them under 160.
