IPL 2017: Kolkata riding high after comfortable win over Sunrisers Hyderabad

MATCH REPORT

KKR crush Maxwell's Kings XI Punjab in IPL

Kolkata have bounced back well from Chris Lynn's injury against Mumbai Indians, demonstrating they can score heavily and choke opposition with the ball. He is in sublime from these days. The game is to be played at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. Delhi Daredevils are now placed third in the league table with twi wins out of the four games they have played and their bowling attack is one that seems to be one of the most effective among all IPL teams.

Delhi Daredevils skipper, Zaheer Khan will be looking for consistency from hi young batsmen.

The mystery around flying saucers can be debated but the cricketing world witnessed something called 'flying Samson.' Indian Premier League (IPL) has raised the bar of fielding. Chris Morris also delivers something incredible to the team DD which help them to receive their best victory.

Talking further about his performance, Narine added: "The wicket is completely different".

Yusuf Pathan's blazing knock after three early shocks helped Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) get closer to the target of 169, set by Delhi Daredevils at the Feroz Shah Kotla here on Monday. Maxwell ended by saying that they will have a talk before regrouping for their next game against Delhi Daredevils. Six was a pre-conceived conclusion when Samson moved to his right, jumped up, caught the ball mid-air over his head and then flicked it back in play as he dived over the rope.

On the other hand, KKR can take a lot of input on the nature of wicket from their Delhi-born captain Gautam Gambhir, who has been in prime form in the tournament so far. "We kept the momentum really well and after not getting wickets in the first six overs I thought we did really well to keep the momentum", he pointed out. The opening pair laid a solid platform for Delhi with a quick 53-run opening stand but after the two got dismissed, KKR bowlers led by Nathan Coulter-Nile dominated the middle overs to put a leash on the increasing run-rate. Both KKR and DD have posted a convincing wins in their previous fixtures.

SRH will not mind any stats, as long as they keep doing what they did in the last season.

Delhi Daredevils: Zaheer Khan (captain), Mohammad Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson (wicketkeeper), Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), CV Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Murugan Ashwin, Aditya Tare, Shashank Singh, Ankit Bawane, Navdeep Saini, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews, Pat Cummins, Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Sam Billings.

Pandey, who remained unbeaten on 69 off 49 balls rescued the visitors with a brilliant 110-run fourth wicket stand with Pathan (59) to turn the tide in favour of the visitors after a terrible start in pursuit of Delhi's 168/7 in 20 overs.
