Clinical KKR crush Daredevils by 71 runs after Russell carnage

Rahul Tewatia was the pick of the DD bowlers as he finished with figures of 3-0-18-3, with all three of his wickets coming in the final over of KKR's innings. Gambhir's stay was short lived as he was bowled by Shivam Mavi leaving Delhi's run chase in trouble.

Earlier, it was a Russell show in the middle overs that lifted KKR to 200 after a slow start. While Russell was at his usual best and bludgeoned Delhi bowlers all over the park, Rana played a watchful hand and kept getting boundaries at regular intervals.

Chasing the target of 201, Delhi Daredevils crumbled down to 129 runs in 14.2 overs. Andre Russell also played well and scored 41 runs, Robin Uthappa 35, Dinesh Karthik 19 runs. But that hope was nearly lost when Kuldeep Yadav took Pant's (43) wicket in the ninth over.

Kuldeep conceded successive sixes against Maxwell but the wrist-spinner had the last laugh, dismissing the Australian for.

From 24 for three, Pant and Maxwell led DDs recovery act in a fifty-plus run partnership in quick time before Yadav gave the breakthrough, removing the Delhi wicketkeeper batsmen.

Leg-spinner Piyush Chawla (1/16) got Roy's back in the last ball of the innings' first over with a slider down the leg side which the England batsman missed and went down the wicket for skipper Dinesh Karthik to effect a stumping. Initially, it seemed he had made the right decision as Trent Boult bowled a maiden in the very first over.

Mrs May will urge member states to join the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance, an agreement to work together on the issue. It will also undertake waste management pilot programs to help tackle the waste, which ends up in the oceans and rivers.

Narine was the first to go as he edged Boult delivery straight to wicket keeper Rishabh Pant who deflected the ball to Maxwell in the first slip.

Boult then had Narine caught behind in his second over, while when he snaffled Karthik (19) at square leg off Chris Morris in the 14th over, the hosts were 117-4, Robin Uthappa (35 off 19) and Chris Lynn (31) having blasted a second-wicket stand of 55. However, he departed soon after and the responsibility of carrying the innings forward was left to Nitish Rana. From there on, it was all downhill for Delhi as they lost wickets in a hurry. This win helped KKR get their second win and go to the second place in the table, thanks to a superior net run-rate.

This time around he will be wearing the blue and red jersey of Delhi and will face Dinesh Karthik and co, when these two teams collide in the much anticipated clash at Eden Gardens on Monday.

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. Then Russell was dropped on 7 by Jason Roy and Russell took full advantage.

In the next over, Rana caught Iyer at first slip off Russell's bowling while the big wicket of Gambhir - who is KKR's most successful captain winning two IPLs with them - fell to U-19 World Cup victor Shivam Mavi (1/14). They have won one match and lost two matches in this season.
