Delhi get their second win of the season. One which they desperately needed and this could very well get their campaign back on track. Plenty of positives for them to take. On Saturday, we have Chennai hosting Mumbai in their new home in Pune. It will begin at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join us for that. Cheers!
Shreyas Iyer is announced as the Man of the Match for his stunning 93 off 40 deliveries. He smashed 10 sixes and 3 fours and remained unbeaten 7 short of a century. Had there been a couple of more balls to play, he would have surely got there with the way he was playing.
After putting in a good show with the bat, the home side continued in the same vein with the ball. Trent Boult, Glenn Maxwell and Avesh Khan provided the early breakthroughs and Kolkata were 4 down within the Powerplay itself. It was more or less game over at that point. Yes, Andre Russell and Shubman Gill did try to resurrect the chase and kept some hope alive, but the risk was always big as there was no recognized batsman left after them. The moment the latter got run out, it all went downhill from there and Russell's blistering knock wasn't enough. A clinical performance from Delhi, their third biggest win in the League (in terms of runs), one which they would be proud of.
A much-needed win for Delhi. They finally looked like the team they were meant to going by how they went at the auction. Shreyas Iyer starts his leadership reign on a high. His team completely outclassed the opposition in all departments. The toss was the only thing that went Kolkata's way. After putting Delhi into bat, the hosts got off to a blazing start as Munro and Shaw (who got a fifty) were firing away. It continued on with skipper Iyer playing the knock of his life. His 73-run stand with Maxwell turned the tide in the hosts' favour as they got past the 200-mark for the first time this season.

Trent Boult To Mitchell Johnson
FOUR! Ends the innings with a couple of boundaries, but to no avail in the grand scheme of things. DELHI WIN BY 55 RUNS! A big one for them. Johnson flicks it over the mid-wicket area and finds the fence. Smiles return in the Delhi dugout.

FOUR! Too full, Johnson creams the drive through the covers and sends it across the boundary line. Good timing on that.

Glenn Maxwell To Kuldeep Yadav
Some comic relief out in the middle provided by Amit Mishra. Yadav gets an inside edge past the leg stump. Mishra from short fine leg chases after it, dives to stop it and half-does it. The ball is stuck under his body, so he gets it out and tosses it to his mate who has come to assist him. Lovely stuff. Two runs taken.

Glenn Maxwell To Piyush Chawla OUT!
OUT! That's a superb catch from Munro in the deep. On the stumps, Chawla slogs this over square leg. It's travelling flat and towards Colin Munro, who judges the ball well before leaping and taking it above his head.

Avesh Khan To Andre Russell OUT!
OUT! Russell's blistering knock comes to an end. Avesh Khan is right on the money. Excellent yorker on middle stump, can't get any more perfect than that. Russell makes room, shows all three stumps as he tries to hit. Misses and his furniture is rocked in all directions. All but over now for Kolkata, if it already wasn't.

Liam Plunkett To Andre Russell
No wide given! Hmm... Interesting. Down the leg side, Russell makes room by moving down leg, then decides to move out of it. Looks at the umpire but doesn't get anything from him.
