KKR posts 200-9 against DD in IPL

Buoyant Rajasthan Royals eyeing third consecutive victory

The undisputed star of the game was Sanju Samon who hit a blistering a 45-ball 92 and Royals would expect him to fire again. PTI

WICKET! Shreyas Iyer departs early, another breakthrough for KKR. Krishna is not gifted with the same pace as that of Nagarkoti but the lanky pacer is capable of causing problems for the batsmen by hitting the deck hard.

I took a profit last time by backing the outsiders in the six hitting market and once again there's some good value here.

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.

Until Andre Russell walked out to bat, Delhi appeared to be in control of the proceedings and were hopeful of restricting Kolkata to a score of 170-175.

Uthappa's wicket slowed down the scoring rate as Nitish Rana and Lynn concentrated on picking singles. Russel and Rana put up 61 run stand before the West Indian was clean bowled by Boult with old fashion Yorker. Chasing a modest 139, SRH struggled against the KKR spinners but Kane Williamson played a captain's knock of 50 to guide them over the line. Trent Boult with the old fashioned yorker that disturbs the timber. Delhi also used Morris and spinner Shahbaz Nadeem in the first five overs and KKR could only post 32/1. Everything was in control for DD but things went out of hands when the former started to smash the ball. Narine departs after getting a thick edge. The team Kolkata Knight Riders is led by Dinesh Karthik and the team Delhi Daredevils is led by Gautam Gambhir.

He came to the crease after the dismissal of captain Dinesh Karthik with Kolkata in a spot of bother at 117 for 4 in the 14over. Delhi, meanwhile, suffered their third defeat in four matches.

After a winning start against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Knight Riders lost its next two fixtures - against Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

DD on the other hand brought in Jason Roy in place of Colin Munro in their previous match and that turned out to be a masterstroke.

Andre Russell of Kolkata Knight Riders in action. As the 16th April seems like the pitch update and weather reports sound calm for the T20 match between KKR vs DD.
