Kuldeep Yadav was given the ball and it took him only three balls to make an impact. He got two back-to-back wickets of B Indrajith and S Narine.

S Iyer made 42 off 37 balls with 4 fours. KKR lost another big wicket in A Russell in the same over. The West Indian tries to go hard at K Yadav but ended up being stumped.
It was a little surprise that K Yadav didn’t bowl his last over.
N Rana was going well along with Rinku Singh. The pair added 62 runs for the 7th wicket and help KKR to finish with a respectable total.

DC hasn’t had a great start in the run chase. They lost P Shaw on the very first ball of the inning. Thanks to the good catch by U Yadav on his own bowling. (DC vs KKR Highlights)
M Marsh came into the team after COVID. He edged the ball for a four over the first slip.
M Marsh tries to play with intent, but his inning was cut short by H Rana. The batter found the fielder at deep square leg in V Iyer.

L Yadav and D Warner, going well after the powerplay and stitching the partnership.

D Warner made 42 off 26 balls with 8 fours. DC was 83 for 3 after 10 overs. They needed another 64 runs in 60 balls.
S Narine got L Yadav in the 11th who made 22 off 29 balls with a four and a six.
U Yadav got R Pant in the next over and there was a twist in the game.
R Powell and A Patel just have to play sensibly as there is no need for big hits. The target was not big. The only concern for DC was wickets.

But in the same over, the left-hander got run out. He made 24 off 17 balls with 2 fours and a six. (DC vs KKR Highlights)
S Narine bowled a 4 run, 16th over. But R Powell goes hard against V Iyer’s first over, who is making up for a fifth bowler. His over went for 14 runs. The next over by T Southee also went for 12 runs. It includes a six-over-deep square leg by R Powell.

K Yadav was adjudged Man of the Match for his 4 wickets.
