Andre Russell continued his exploits in the death overs as he took on Kagiso Rabada. Piyush Chawla’s cameo in the end ensured KKR reached a total of 178/7 in 20 overs.

As for Delhi Capitals, Prithvi Shaw got out after a fantastic start. However it was Shikhar Dhawan who stood tall for the Delhi Capitals today with a stupendous innings of 97(63)*.

While skipper Shreyas Iyer failed to prolong his stay at the crease, the duo of Dhawan and Rishabh Pant put up a 105-run partnership from just 69 balls.
