IPL 2018, KKR vs DD: 4 Masterstrokes from the game
Four masterstrokes from KKR vs DD game
Playing their 4th match of the season, Kolkata Knight Riders were to host Delhi Daredevils at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Delhi was high on confidence coming into this game, after beating the reigning champions in their own backyard. Kolkata, on the other hand, seemed to lose their path after a win in their opening encounter.
On one of the better pitches in India, Delhi won the toss and asked KKR to bat first. The Knights were caught up by a beautiful spell from Boult upfront as he got rid of Sunil Narine. However, Uthappa tried to up the ante but was caught by Nadeem. Later, a blitz from Russell and a 50+ score from Rana helped the team post a mammoth total of 200.
Chasing 201, Delhi was caught off guard by Chawla in the very first over as he grabbed the prize scalp of Jason Roy. It was always a huge task at hand, but the likes of Pant and Maxwell gave them a glimmer of hope to reach anyway near to the target. However, after their dismissal, it was just a flurry of wickets that meant a loss by 71 runs for the Daredevils.
Let's take a look at some of the master strokes from the match:
