As Rana was scoring at a brisk pace, in came Andre Russell, who smashed the Delhi bowlers all over the park, hitting a flurry of boundaries and sixes, before being bowled by Boult after scoring a blitzkrieg knock of 41(12b, 6x6). With Tewatia claiming the lower order wickets in quick succession, KKR ended at 200/9 off 20 overs. As Delhi Daredevils came in to bat, they had an early jolt. as they lost their captain Gautam Gambhir and another opener Roy in quick succession.

And while they were batting, the chase seemed probable, but post their departure, the lower order fell like a pack of cards, one after the other, as Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav ended with impressive figures of 3/18 and 3/32 respectively, and Delhi Daredevils were wrapped for 129 in just 14.2 overs.
