KKR canter to 71-run win over Delhi

Robin Uthappa keen to help KKR to another win Robin Uthappa keen to help KKR to another win

IPL 2018, KKR vs DD at Eden Gardens, latest update and cricket score: Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils by 71 runs. The 61-run fifth wicket-stand off 22 balls between Rana and Russell in many ways turned the game around for the hosts.

It's too early to write off any team's challenge, but Mumbai Indians (no wins in three) and Delhi Daredevils (one from three) are already threatening to be cut adrift at the bottom of the table. The chase never got off for them as they kept losing wickets and the credit has to go to KKR bowlers.

The opening slot with Chris Lynn is also an uncertainty with Sunil Narine not coming out with the Australian on Saturday and Uthappa filling in that role, for only the second time since the end of the 2016 season.

On the other hand, the Delhi Daredevils have had a contrasting journey so far. The clash between the two sides will see Gautam Gambhir return to his former side on Monday.

Captains: Dinesh Karthick vs Gautam Gambhir. The youngster duo didn't get enough time in the middle to prove themselves as Gill, primarily a No 3 batsman, came only at No 7, while Mavi's raw pace and energy were left untested as he was not introduced during the Powerplay.

Delhi Daredevils: 129 all out in 14.2 overs (Glenn Maxwell 47, Rishabh Pant 43; Sunil Narine 3/18, Kuldeep Yadav 3/32).

Lynn got into the groove by smashing Boult for back-to-back boundaries before Uthappa took Nadeem to the cleaners with two sixes and a four. Followed by Nitish Rana taking a good catch at slips to dismiss Shreyas Iyer off Russell. KKR have lost their last two games and have some serious issues to fix with their team. Hence the chance of DD Winning this match is rare. The spell was divided between India's Mohammed Shami and Kiwi quick Trent Boult.

Delhi Daredevils skipper Gautam Gambhir was once again lucky to win the toss and opted to bowl first as they included Chris Morris in the playing XI at the expense of Daniel Christian. However, the shining star of KKR Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine took 3 wickets each and snatched the match from the DD's jaw.
