Captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa's 100-plus partnership saw Kolkata Knight Riders defeat Delhi Daredevils by seven wickets at the Eden Gardens, in Kolkata, on Friday. Gambhir and Uthappa have been partnering brilliantly this season and it was their heroics with the bat, with help from Nathan Coulter-Nile with his three wickets in the first innings, that saw them consolidate their position at the top of the points table. Gambhir stayed unbeaten on 71 while Uthappa made 59, after being dropped earlier. Kagiso Rabada took two wickets, especially removing Sunil Narine in the early stages, but it wasn't enough for Zaheer Khan's team to ring in a victory. (Scorecard)
Earlier, Delhi started well despite losing Karun Nair cheaply. Samson looked good as he notched his sixth IPL fifty while Iyer also reached his sixth half-century. Delhi were on course for a big score before Kolkata pulled things back with some tight bowling. Delhi kept losing wickets in the second half of their innings and failed to take advantage of their good start. Coulter-Nile was very disciplined at the death and not only did he take wickets but also managed to keep Delhi batsmen on a tight leash.
