130/7 (18.2/20)
127/9 (20.0/20)
Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Capitals by 3 wickets
That's all from this match! Delhi's 4-match winning streak has been broken and by doing so, Kolkata have kept their hopes alive in this season. The next clash of the evening involves Mumbai and Punjab and the action is about to begin at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Switch tabs and do join us. Cheers!
Sunil Narine has been picked for the Man of the Match award for his match-winning cameo. He also had amazing bowling figures of 4-0-18-2 in the game.
Earlier in the day, Delhi struggled on a challenging surface. Steven Smith and Rishabh Pant put up a little bit of resistance and took Delhi to a fighting total and their bowlers also fought bravely. A special mention for Avesh Khan who bowled his heart out and claimed a 3-wicket haul. The knock of Shubman Gill upfront was very handy and then the rest chipped in as well. This chase could have become very tight had Sunil Narine not taken Kagiso Rabada to the cleaners in the 16th over. Once the momentum was stolen there, Kolkata easily closed the game with 10 balls to spare.
A bit of a bumpy ride but Kolkata have reached home safely! A target of 128 was always going to be tricky on this sluggish surface but the positive approach of Kolkata made it easy for them. Their openers once again succeeded in setting the tone and despite losing two wickets in the Powerplay, Kolkata managed to score decently. Delhi unleashed their army of spinners and it did become slightly scary for Kolkata at one stage. There were a few moments when the chase started to drift away from them but Nitish Rana stood at one end like a rock and his useful stands with Dinesh Karthik and Sunil Narine helped the 2-time champions in crossing the line.

Avesh Khan To Tim Southee OUT!
OUT! Bowled! Avesh Khan has another. His season is getting better and better. A bit short in length around off, Southee stays back to heave it over the leg side but gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. 50 wickets in T20s for Avesh Khan and he has a smile on his face. Kolkata need 2 runs to win.

Anrich Nortje To Sunil Narine OUT!
OUT! Narine is gone! A needless shot but this is how he bats! Back of a length, outside off, Sunil Narine camps back to smack it through the line but it takes the top edge and flies to extra cover. Axar Patel is underneath it. End of a match-winning knock, possibly.

Anrich Nortje To Nitish Rana
PANT IN PAIN! Sharp delivery, that's quick. Nortje bowls it with a cross-seam and lands it on a length close to off, Rana tries to cut but misses. It goes to Pant and moves towards his right.

Strategic Time-Out! Well, the game was evenly poised before the 16th over but it has now drifted towards Kolkata and they need just 9 runs from 24 balls now! Kagiso Rabada lost his radar in the previous over and Sunil Narine has taken full toll of it! A gem of an innings from him and well supported by Nitish Rana. Anrich Nortje comes to bowl the 17th over for Delhi.

Kagiso Rabada To Sunil Narine

Avesh Khan To Dinesh Karthik OUT!
OUT! SOUND OF TIMBER! Dinesh Karthik runs out of luck. A sequence of dot balls and there is a wicket for Avesh Khan. The slower one does the trick. It's a bit on the shorter side, around off at 126 kph, Karthik stays back inside the crease and tries to run it down to third man. The ball though arrives late, takes the inner portion of his bat and disturbs the stumps behind. This game takes another twist. 32 needed off 32 balls, 5 wickets in the bank for Kolkata.

Lalit Yadav To Shubman Gill
Tossed up outside off, this is hit through covers for one.
Strategic Time-Out! Kolkata would be the happier of the two sides going into this break even though they have lost two wickets. Shubman Gill has held one end and he has played really well so far. However, he needs to bat deeper into the innings as the wicket is not easy to bat on, especially for new batters coming in. Delhi will have to keep picking up wickets if they are to win this game. They have already spent 6 overs combined of Axar and Ashwin and will have to use their bowling choices smartly.

Avesh Khan To Rahul Tripathi OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Avesh Khan is ecstatic. This is another big wicket for Delhi as Rahul Tripathi is an attacking batsman. Clever bowling by Khan. He lets out a slower one on a length outside off, at 123.7 kph. Rahul fails to read the variation and is early into his shot. He chips it tamely to the left of mid off and Steven Smith moves across swiftly to complete the catch. Delhi need to keep taking wickets to stay in the hunt.
