Narine takes 100th IPL wicket in emphatic KKR win

Narine takes 100th IPL wicket in emphatic KKR win

But the fall of his wicket and a brilliant last over by Rahul Tewatia - where the leg-spinner conceded just one run and bagged 3 wickets, restricted the scorecard to 200/9. And in the third, young pacer Shivam Mavi castled Gautam Gambhir to reduce Delhi to 24 for 3. Earlier, Rana cracked a fine half century while Russell blasted a 12-ball 44 to propel KKR to 200/9 in 20 overs.

Well, Delhi Daredevil had a bad start and none of its batsmen stood for long other than Rishabh Pant (43) and Glenn Maxwell (47). Although Delhi Daredevils started the run chase decently in the beginning, they lost wickets in quick succession at the end; eventually losing the game by 71 runs. For Daredevils, Glenn Maxwell, 47 off 22 balls, and Rishabh Pant, 43 off 26, were the only batsmen to reach double-figure mark.

Kolkata Knight Riders celebrate their win over Delhi Daredevils. After the departure of Russell and Rana, wrist spinner Rahul Tewatia (3/18) took three wickets in the last over, but the duo's stunning 61-run partnership from 22 balls was enough to help KKR post a challenging total. Chawla bowled the first over, took the wicket of Roy (1), beautifully stumped by Karthik.

The left Hander hit sixes and fours in his explosive innings.

Boult started off really well as he picked up a wicket and did not give a run in his first 10 deliveries. "Today I had chose 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.

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. After Pant's exit it was all downhill for Delhi as Narine took charge to twist the knife further with a three-wicket haul. Kolkata mustered 87 runs in the last five overs. 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 venue of the match is at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Ultimately DD's innings folded up for 129 earning KKR a handsome win.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Dinesh Karthik (captain), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Mitchell Johnson, Shubman Gill, R Vinay Kumar, Rinku Singh, Cameron Delport, Javon Searless, Apoorv Wankhade, Ishank Jaggi and Tom Curran.

The only blip in Russells innings was when he was dropped on 7 by Jason Roy off the bowling of Mohammed Shami, but from thereon there was no stopping the Jamaican.

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.
