  • Knight Riders join Sunrisers at IPL summit

After the departure of Russell and Rana, wrist spinner Rahul Tewatia (3/18) took three wickets in the last over, but the duos 61-run partnership from 22 balls was enough to take them to 200. And Shivam Mavi bowled the third over, clean bowled Gambhir (8).

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.

Well, Delhi Daredevil had a bad start and none of its batsmen stood for long other than Rishabh Pant (43) and Glenn Maxwell (47).

Roy, who blasted 91 not out from 53 balls in Delhi's win over defending champions Mumbai Indians on Saturday, was stumped by Kolkata captain Dinesh Karthik off Piyush Chawla's leg-side wide in the opening over for one as the Daredevils were bundled out for 129 in 14.2 overs chasing 201.

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. Russell occupied the crease briefly, for 12 balls, but hit all over the park en route to a brutal 41 - 36 off them coming in sixes.

Boult gave Delhi Daredevils a terrific start, bowling a first over maiden to Chris Lynn and then accounting for Narine.

After losing the toss and being put in to bat, Kolkata was given a platform by Robin Uthappa (35) and Chris Lynn (31) at the top of the order. In his innings he hit three sixes and two fours.

After Uthappa onslaught, Nitish Rana continued to play big shots going after spinner Nadeem who finished with figures of 1/43 in his 4 overs. This win helped KKR get their second win and go to the second place in the table, thanks to a superior net run-rate.

Pant and Maxwell revived the Daredevils run chase as they added 62 runs for the fourth wicket.

WICKET! Trent Boult with the breakthrough, Narine edges one back to wicketkeeper Pant to deflects it to Maxwell on the first slip. His second ball just cleared the cover fielder for four, but the rest of his three boundaries and four sixes were much more convincing. Well, the Gautam Gambhir's devils failed to scare Dinesh Karthik's riders on the ground and lost the match.

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.

India's Under-19 World Cup winning pacer Shivam Mavi got his maiden IPL wicket in Gambhir in his first over as the former KKR skipper played on. Here's who won today's IPL match.

The big-hitting Russell smashed six sixes, Mohammed Shami in particular coming in for some treatment while Jason Roy was left to rue putting down a hard chance to remove the dangerman when he had only seven to his name.
