Nikhil Naik & Chris Lynn opens for KKR

Lamichhane gets Naik plumb

Bowls a flippers and Naik didn’t get bat & goes for the review straight away, I think he has got some bat on that one. Let’s see.

Pitching outside-off, impact in-line & most importantly WICKETS hitting. And with that Naik goes 7. Robbie Uthappa comes in at 3. KKR 16/1.

Harshal gets Uthappa

That’s the line and length to bowl in T20s. Perfect in-swinging delivery and Robbie misses out hits on the pads. He can’t take review coz it has already been utilised. Further more if he had used review it would have been a waste as the ball was hitting middle stump. Robbie goes for 11. Nitish Rana comes in. It’s 36/2 after 6 overs

Gloved and gone!!

Has he held it? Yesssss he has! What a brilliant catch by Rishab Pant. Rabada bowls short ball and Lynn tries to pull but gets slide edge which seems to fly-over Pant’s head. But young man Rishab Pant showing his jumping skills by flying to his left and taking a blinder.

Rabada is happy. Chris Lynn departs for 20. KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik comes in. It’s 40/3

Rana whips out straight to Rabada

Harshal patel gets another, as it was the pace that have got him so quickly and athletic Rabada composes himself and hangs onto ball. Rana gone for 1. Shubhman Gill cones to crease. It’s 44/4

Hasrhal Patel is on a Hat-trick! Ah KKR skipper denies him a wicket by pushing ball to mid-wicket.

Oh boy, wicket outta nowhere!!!

Gill cuts ball to square of the wicket and Rabada stops the ball just before touching the rope, amidst this batsman came back for the 3rd one. Out says the big screen. Gill goes for 4. Dangerous Andre Russell comes in. It’s 61/5

125/5 after 15.4

Russell is playing a gem of a knock here.

50 for Jamaican Missile

RUSSELL MUSCLES

Half century off just 23 balls. What a batting under such difficult circumstances. 5th IPL 50 for Andre Russell.

Wicket amidst collision!

Two fielder Rabada and Rahul Tewatia converging but Rahul takes a brilliant catch without slipping ball out of his hand while collision . Russell swings his bat hard but didn’t quite get hold of it & Rahul takes catch amidst collision with Rabada. Andre Russell goes for 62 off 28. It’s 156/6

Mishra gets the skipper

Very very clever Mishra! Sees Karthik tries to tackle him but he bowls wide off stump delivery Karthik tries to cut but edges it to the keeper. Karthik gone for 50. It’s 170/7

A Run-out and KKR ends on 185/7.

On the half-way mark I can’t think that they can reach 150+ but here you are, you know how Russell can bat in these conditions.

______________________________________________________________________________

DELHI CAPITALS need 186 to win

Shikhar Dhawan & Prithvi Shaw opens up for DC

Chawla gets The-one

After hitting Chawla for 4,6 and it was in the slot as Dhawan tries to go over mid-off but chips it straight to orange cap holder Andre Russell. Dhawan goes for 16. Skipper Shreyas Iyer comes in at 3. It’s 27/1

Shaw and Iyer cruising DC to the victory

102/1 after 11 overs

50 comes up for Prithvi Shaw

Finally Gill takes the catch

Earlier gill dropped absolutely a sitter and this times calm composed gill makes no mistake off Russell’s delivery. KKR badly needed that. Skipper Iyer goes for 43. Rishab Pant comes in. It’s 116/2

Equation 41 off 27

What a thriller this match is turning out to be!

Pant is gone

Kuldeep flights the ball and Pant tries to hit it but one hand grips comes out and holes out to deep mid-wicket. Pant is gone for 11. Colin Ingram comes in. It’s 170/3

12 required off 10 balls

Shaw misses out century

Scoring 99/99* in IPL:

99*S Raina CSK v SRH, Hyderabad, 2013

99 V Kohli RCB v DD, Delhi, 2013

99 P SHAW DC v KKR, Delhi, 2019#DCvKKR

Top innings from young Prithvi Shaw. You could say he missed a century but the fact is that he has played a fabulous match winning innings.

The equation is 5 required off last 6 balls

After many discussions Kuldeep is going to bowl.

YAYYYY!!! Kuldeep strikes!

Vihari goes for the pull and Gill does the rest. Vihari goes for 2. It’s 184/5

2 runs required off 1 ball

What will happen? Will it be a tie?

You bet!!!!

Ingram goes for the sweep off last ball and If he gets there in time for the second, ohh no no he didn’t!! And we are going to have a super over match i reckon!!!!

First super over match of this IPL season

What a match we’re having, a super duper contest.Robbie Uthappa comes in.

Freddie Wilde

Rabada’s yorker to Russell is one of the great balls in T20. Dre is batting on another planet to the rest of the circuit right now – the margin for error to him his infinitesimal & KG nails an inch-perfect yorker right on middle stump & right on the crease-line. #IPL #DCvKKR
